Create to Flow by Ingela Johansson,
a course in creative meditation
"The method in the book Create to Flow has helped me to connect with my intuition, creativity, and spirit. It has helped me tremendously in my work as an artist, as it is a fantastic way to unlock hidden and slumbering potentials."
Theresa Vidjeskog Ahlman, Textile artist, and illustrator, Karlstad
This book is a journey in creative self-discovery. In the first chapter you will set your starting point, so that you can begin your journey.
The second chapter will explain the practice and you will design your own.
In the third chapter, we will dive into how play can be a game-changer for flow and creativity,
We will also look at tools to unleash your creative courage, and let go of guilt.
When we arrive at chapter four we will dive deeper into why listening into yourself from a calm state of mind, can make you take better decisions and understand yourself on a deeper level.
Purely, from not being in stress when you listen. The painting will be a tool in this practice.
If the third chapter was about play the fifth is about how you can open your box of possibilities by shifting perspective and using limitation as a tool for innovation.
Chapter six will inspire you to build your dreams and reach for your vision, by looking at your beliefs and icons.
It is a journey of creative self-discovery.
All you need is some paper, colors and a brush to start.
You can do the practice when it suits you and you don't even need wifi.
But, I can promise you that it will be an interesting journey filled with color.
I hope to see you along the way.
