What Coloring Really Does…

Mira(cle)Doodles by elinap

I was just rewriting my Offerings page and realized why I create coloring pictures! Huge dots connected and I so want to share it with you, so here:

Mira(cle)Doodles are a process where first I get an idea, an image hovers in my mind’s eye and I start to sketch it out. My ego may jump in and start making fun of the idea. In those cases I lose the words I was thinking that the image was about. They just disappear.

But I keep drawing.

And then I start coloring and in the repetitive hand movements lie the secret. It’s my meditation. Ego sighs and kicks the ground, but I don’t pay attention to him anymore. I just color. The world around me has disappeared.

That’s when the right words for the image start to pop in my mind too.

 

And the relaxing wisdom that fills me with joy is there again!

AND THAT is what I’d love my coloring exercises to help you with too.
That is the reason I have created them almost as long as I have doodled.

For a couple of years I offered them for my newsletter subscribers every month. In 2016 I published a coloring workbook that concentrated on guiding you through ten steps to help you make your dreams come true. For three times already I have ran an online coloring course where you can review your year at the end of the year with coloring and find the gifts it brought you (I love to look at the past with gratitude and find the lessons and their gifts) and ever since 2015 I have created coloring pictures for groups of children to ignite imagination and spark their storytelling too – I have met over 800 children while doing that.

 

Coloring to me is

like speaking with

my heart

directly

It connects.

 It relaxes.

 It is one of the best things I know, and THAT is the reason I love to create coloring pictures for you!

This year I’ll be redrawing my “Color Your Dreams True” book and sharing the coloring exercises with you as I go in Patreon, because it is so much more fun to color together!
