Oracle © Sue O’Kieffe 2010
It started with one long line looped around the page. As I continued to fill in the spaces, the shape of a face began to emerge. I don’t normally draw faces, but this powerful wide eyed woman seemed to have something important to share.
Listening to her, I recognized what I have known for awhile. She reminds me that I am shifting the focus and intention of my doodling to embrace it as a healing activity. My heart has been touched many times by the comments left on my blog that my work inspires. More and more I am owning that this art is a healing activity. My intention and my passion is motivated by a desire to express heartfelt truth, and to assist others in finding theirs.
Art and creativity is such a great way to do this.
I speak from my inner knowing and create using intuitive symbols. When I listen to what The Oracle wants to share with me, I see all the stories and symbols and words of wisdom waiting to be expressed. We hold back out of fear.
My strength is in my sense of humor. I love being playful and funny and the way I express that best is through these doodles.
And so today I encourage all of you who play on paper to find your voice, your symbols, your special meanings. In the days to come I will share more of my process and offer suggestions so you can find what works for you.
I look forward to our playtime together.
