Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

Creative Energy in Shadow Periods
It seems necessary to not just clear on a daily basis but to find an outlet and for me it is my creativity. It is the one thing that can guarantee my moods staying more even and calm during shadow periods.
The more I create the better I feel.
Take time to stop your thoughts long enough to put pen, marker, crayon, paintbrush to paper and just begin to move your hand any way that it likes. Don't worry about what you are creating or who will see it. Just breath and create lines, hearts, stars, circles and any other shapes you wish. Create new shapes.
Allow for spirit to move through you as you create and add color to the page.
I never know what I am going to draw when I begin. I just know that I am feeling compelled to express myself through art. While I am drawing, my breathing calms, my mind stills, and all feels right with the world in that moment.
May you find peace in your artful creations.
