Supposing

REFLECTIONS FOR ACCESSING YOUR WISE INNER ARTIST

Supposing you believed that your best advice comes from within? Not just advice but creative courage for/from your wise Inner Artist. You’ve likely seen rigid art manikins posing on shelves. Have you ever seen this scarf-clad Emotikin living life fully? It's the Inner Artist personified. Go with us and within to explore magical inner landscapes from seashore to mountains and regular places too. These genuine photographs will transport you into soulful encounters with nature and serendipity. A few questions posed on each card point you toward imagining new possibilities. You also get an -ing word for living into the answers, as Rilke once told a young poet. Diving deep into the heart of your creativity has never been so curiously delightful!

** When the soul wishes to experience something, she throws an image of the experience out before her and enters into her own image. **
~MEISTER ECKHART

Thanks for playing! Be sure to check out the Guidebook, swiping to see all 7 pages, including the origin Story of a Life Before Fully Living and Care of Your Own Emotikin.
