#Inktober2020 Notes

by

Here you’ll find some notes I wrote when doodling through #Inktober2020 in October 2020 inspired by Jake Parker’s #Inktober2020 daily prompts.

#Inktober2020 • Day 30

Ominous

Oh no, an ominous thought is approaching!

Will you let it wash over you and take over or will you reach out to your heart and cut it off?

Shoes

Ego always looks for an external solution like it looks for an external enemy too.

Maybe this time it’s these new shoes that will make your life better?

But for how long…

Float

Floating in
the infinite possibilities
of the universe.

#Inktober2020 • Day 27

Music

When you find your music it makes your heart fill up with joy, and overflow.

And when your heart overflows,
it is effortless to flow with your creativity.

#Inktober2020 • Day 26

Hide

Have you been hiding from miracles lately?

I love it when they find me.

I redraw a six year old doodle for this prompt – See the oldie here.

#Inktober2020 • Day 25

Buddy

Pause and ask your heart.

And keep in mind that ego will try to convince that he’s your best buddy, but your heart is the one to follow if you are after peaceful and joyful life.

#Inktober2020 • Day 24

Dig

Meanwhile the heart ponders…

“She doesn’t yet get it how much darker it gets the deeper she digs… And all the while the sunshiny world is out there at her fingertips.”

Does your ego keep your too busy too?

#Inktober2020 • Day 23

Rip

The contracts we sign with our ego are “not set in stone”.

If it doesn’t make you free, unleash yourself. It’s only the ego who who gets stung by it.

#Inktober2020 • Day 22

Chef

Ego’s promises have kept me waiting for too long.

Better to listen to your heart and start taking action!

This reminded me of an illustration I did ten years ago, it sort of started it all…

#Inktober2020 • Day 21

Sleep

An awakened mind is listening.

It’s the mind that is asleep …or so hectic that it just has no time to listen to the heart.

What would wake you up?

#Inktober2020 • Day 20

Coral

What would the fish say?

I’m listening.

#Inktober2020 • Day 19

Dizzy

Ego always says “Just one more, then you’re ready to take on the world.”

But all that does, is to leave you dizzy and out of balance.

Stop playing ego’s games.

#Inktober2020 • Day 18

Trap

“There’s no need to beat yourself up for it,” says the heart and continues…

“All is well!”

And poff, when you believe it, you can step out of it – With love.

#Inktober2020 • Day 17

Storm

Be the captain of your life,

Know that the storms shall pass,

and keep your eyes on the horizon.

There’s the rainbow.

#Inktober2020 • Day 16

Rocket

“Take me to the moon and back!”

“Happy to!”

And at the speed of love they traveled.

#Inktober2020 • Day 15

Outpost

At the edge of your comfort zone you can find the final challenge… How to get past the guard who thinks he has your best interests at hand.

Magic happens when you let go of the war inside you.

Mira(cle)Doodles by elinap

#Inktober2020 • Day 14

Armor

Ego has its solutions figured out to all the problems it has caused.

It’s ego who gets hurt. Not you, nor your heart. That thicker skin is for the vulnerable ego only.

#Inktober2020 • Day 13

Dune

When you are so used to, so comfortable with lack mindset, it takes a while to realize you can dance the abundance right away with your heart.

See my old doodles from the desert.

#Inktober2020 • Day 12

Slippery

What would you do
if you knew
you couldn’t
fail,
even if
you fell?

Mira(cle)Doodles by elinap

#Inktober2020 • Day 11

Disgusting

It is a great relief to know something is constant in your life – Being loved.

You are loved just the way you are at all times – Your heart just can’t help it.

Mira(cle)Doodles by elinap

#Inktober2020 • Day 10

Hope

The heart KNOWS that all is well at all times.

…And that makes it impossible to ever run out of hope.

Mira(cle)Doodles by elinap

#Inktober2020 • Day 9

Throw

The ego is quite attached to the outcome and to what it has accomplished.

Are you?

Mira(cle)Doodles by elinap

#Inktober2020 • Day 8

Teeth

Your thoughts take you away from the now, into anticipating the future that will never happen.

Pause the grinding and see the beauty of the present moment.

It’s all we’ve got.

#Inktober2020 • Day 7

Fancy

They say we live in post-truth society now, that the intensity of the message is what matters. Can you recognize the bells and whistles of the ego?

…Just keep on listening to the gentle whispers of your heart.

#Inktober2020 • Day 6

Rodent

It’s so common to think that you’re lacking something, that you’d be better off as someone else, but how often do we look at how magnificent and amazing we already are?

Just do you!

Mira(cle)Doodles by elinap

#Inktober2020 • Day 5

Blade

It’s you who holds the sword above your head…

Dive deeper with A Course in Miracles Workbook lesson 192.

#Inktober2020 • Day 4

Radio

Ego says: “Well, it’s all up to finding the switch now then…”

Heart smiles knowingly and whispers: “You ARE the switch, abundance flows from within.”

You are enough.

#Inktober2020 • Day 3

Bulky

Sometimes ego just takes up all the space. It is the situation, drama you are in and your reaction on it. It makes it almost impossible to hear the whispers of your heart when the ego is so loud.

Haha! First I read the day 2 prompt as WISP, then I copy pasted it from somewhere and saw that it was wHisp, but then it had been wisp all along… So I drew them both for day 2:

#Inktober2020 • Day 2

Whisp

Have you ever been overwhelmed?

It’s like ego was cooking up steaming situations resulting in lots of drama. And it’s hard to see the bigger picture while all those thoughts keep going in circles in your mind…

Mira(cle)Doodles by elinap

#Inktober2020 • Day 2

Wisp

Following the will o’ the wisps takes you deeper into an aventure with your heart.

Let them guide your path.

#Inktober2020 • Day 1

Fish

Ego feeds on compliments, but our heart thrives on its own, and from her wholeness she connects with others, and finds even more happiness and joy. Something the ego will never get to experience, because nothing is ever enough for it.

These little doodles are something I’ve been drawing since 2014 and I call them illustrations from a spiritual path, because they do illustrate the insights I’ve got as I study and dive deeper and deeper under the surface of being a human. If you are new here or just want to dive deeper here’s where you can learn more about the characters and the whole story behind these doodles.

Check out all the Black & White Mira(cle)Doodles that include not only the newest but also the two previous Inktober challenges as well as some other black & white doodles I’ve drawn since 2017.
