Don’t stop playing

You will miss out on a lot of things in life if you don’t let yourself play and give yourself to a moment without worrying about your to do list, your timekeeping, money-making, dating and all things that have become so important to us since growng up. Ever heard of the concept Flow? Yes? I…

Automatic Painting – A ritual

Hello! I’m back and I’m glad. I’ve been preoccupied (not busy! I’m trying to avoid this expression. I think ppl are far to busy being busy. I rather immerse myself into my passion.)…sorry, again…I’ve been preoccupied with a new wave of automatic painting. For this I swapped my marker and paper with oil and canvas…

Non-toxic oil painting

Recently I decided to try my automatic drawings in oil paint. I had been doing oil painting for years when I was much younger and then got distracted by other awesome media such as water-colour, markers, pastels and water-colour pencils. Over the years my respect for oil painting had grown to an obstacle hard to…

Who to trust but myself

Doctors versus alternative medicine versus your own judgment It’s been a long time I wrote my last Blog entry. I’m gonna tell you why, which is what this text will be about. I recently confronted a few physical and closely linked psychological concerns of mine. I’m a healthy gal, so doctors assure me, yet I…

“Normal” breathing – What is that?

For years I have been observing the way I breath. As part of my spiritual practise that includes Yoga, meditation, chaos magic, peasant and other rituals and mandala drawing, breathing plays a central role and therefore often requires my focus. After years of observing my breathing, not only during my spiritual practise, but also, consequently,…

Meditation through making mandalas vol. 2

I already wrote about the process of making/drawing mandalas and how this is meditative and beneficial to reach equilibrium. I have continued making mandalas (as opposed to drawing them I have been making them from silk) and been enjoying the process. It is very time consuming and for somebody like me, who tends to move on from things quickly,…

Making textile mandalas whilst meditating

I wrote earlier about my experimentation with automatic drawing. I continued with that as I was really enjoying the meditative effect it had on me. It’s such a good feeling to not think about things for once but just let your body and subconscious lead you, respond to the mark-making without considering options (!!). It’s…

New Video on how to make a Sigil

Somewhere earlier on my blog (you can search it) I talked and explained the concept of Sigils. I got into it through Chaos Magic and Automatic Drawing. Later I came across it again through the Warrior’s call, whom I joined for a global ritual on the 4th of October. That turned out to be awesome!! Anyways,…

Joining into the online global web of activists {Gritual 3.0}

I’m so happy!! I was able to join the warrior’s call on the 4th of October. I didn’t manage to go to Avebury as I had to do some voluntary shifts at our community café but the warrior’s call people encouraged us to join in from wherever we are by doing our own ritual. It…

Getting involved and making things happen

Today is the day!! I’m getting involved in the Earth’s Web (see an earlier post called How to make a change)!! I will be participating in the international ceremony to protect our Earth from more fracking. I put my solo ritual, which is how you call it, when you do it from a remote site to the main site,…

Developing my automatic drawings

I showed my automatic drawings to a whole lot of friends and the response to them couldn’t be more diverse. I thought everybody would more or less agree on a couple they like but far from it. Opinions and arguments are divided and it leaves me with having to make up my own mind about them. I…

Automatic drawing

My first attempts: 1. Looks like Carneval. 😉 2. Quite technical, almost like a machine, bits are connecting to each other, like a satelite. 3. This looks like an outbreak of joy. 4.  This looks like a spider net or like tentakles. 5.  Ordering Chaos. 6. 7. Looks like a field from above. A system. 8. Looks like a…
