I don't disbelieve her, but whenever I try it sometimes feels like overkill.
Most people can meditate, and I wondered why I had such an issue, and why I felt so antsy.
I think I have an answer.
When I am drawing I have to focus. I do not like having conversations, or even recording myself when I am doing serious work. Music is OK, but that is about it for input.
I think art is my meditation.

It is a separateness from reality and a bit of a delve into magic.
This week I looked at a deck of tarot cards drawn by artist James Eads. I was shuffling and the High Priestess card fell out. The High Priestess is the card of the subconscious, where ideas and creativity are first conceived.
We need to listen to our intuition and meditate in our own way. Some go outside and say nature is their church. Some meditate. I do art. Maybe you do too.
Stay tuned. I am in the process of creating a book just for artists. We are a special breed. We should not forget that.
