Using Abstract Intuitive Art As Meditation

If you would like to try your hand and heart at an intuitive abstract painting all you need is your willingness to try. You don't have to be an artist. In fact, the worse you think you are at painting the more fun you will probably have with it. After all, you're not trying to create a masterpiece, you're trying to master peace.

This is what I recommend:

  • Make sure your space is peaceful.
  • Play some music in the background that is right for you.
  • Have large canvas to work on so size does not confine you.
  • Have plenty of colors to choose from that are right in front of you.
  • As if you are a child, go into the act without a care in the world.
  • Take delight in what you do and allow your instincts to take over.


  1. wonderful definition of the peace. I am sure that each who will take a paintbrush and follow your instructions will embellish our world greatly.

  2. I loved how you referred to painting as mastering "peace". Wonderful thought...
