God Infusions - Creativity as a Path

One way to feel connected to God is to experiment with your gifts. We all have gifts but perhaps have never taken the risk to reveal them or we did reveal them at one time and are afraid to do so again. The suggestions below are for YOU. They are for your spirit. They are enacted prayer. Parts of you are set free to revel in God's wonder-filled world. Enjoy! Peace.

visit an art museum or exhibit
dance in your living room
paint ceramics
read The Artist Way by Julia Cameron
paint a wall
make a collage with old magazines
photograph your surroundings, even the things you cook!
try a new hairstyle
learn about an artist like Matisse, Georgia O'Keefe, Alexander Calder
watch a black and white classic movie (On the Waterfront - or anything with Merna Loy, Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn)
buy and arrange flowers
collect leaves
color in a coloring book
go to the symphony
make your own jewelry (Circle of Stones, LaGrange IL)
visit an art studio (Riverside Art Center)
get your hands dirty- garden even if you don't have a green thumb
