Empower Your Intuition

As its name suggests, Intuition Painting nurtures your ability to follow our intuition in each moment and allow the painting simply to unfold. We remain fully engaged in the process, chasing our inklings, trusting our inner guide, and staying present to all possibility - all while maintaining a buoyant state of flow. Color choices and brush strokes arise from our stream of consciousness and change with each moment. When we begin, there is no idea or plan in mind and we continue creating spontaneously and intuitively until the painting absolutely feels complete. In turn, one of its gifts creates space for authentic emotions to arise, be processed, and ultimately released. It is one of the most joyful ways to practice mindfulness, follow joy, unburden the heart, and return to compassion.

Intuition Painting offers a path to creative resurgence, which leads to deeper life experience. The results are not intended to be viewed, approved, or sold. Instead they are a visual diary for its maker on a journey towards creative liberation. Paint Awake™ is a tool to experience the unknown for purposes of personal growth and to cultivate wisdom through intuition and insight.


Your Personal Narnia

The Paint Awake™ process asks that you show up with bravery and openness, but requires only that you play with colors and a paintbrush. Once here, you will remember how...and you will soon realize why. You will rejoice in the unfolding of tightly wound inner spaces. Eventually you will glide into lucid painting as if it were a dream you’ve been having all along. Your creative self will light up. You will rediscover ease and gratitude. You will find your unique visual voice. And most important, you will reconnect to your radiant, creative self.

For those who are new to this way of painting, I am inviting you to reach far beyond what has been told to you about the purpose and value of art, and venture through a new door to explore your authenticity through color and form. On the journey you will gain methodology, tools, and mantras to strengthen your creativity while maintaining your true voice, presence and flow.

This process is dedicated to all who wish to paint beyond pretty and create fiercely so that we may know and honor our deepest selves and bond our broadest connections to the web of life.

Paint Awake™ is for everyone who feels the tickle of creativity, including:

- People who get it
- People who lost it
- People who fear they don't have it it all

With Creative Juju,
Montine


What is Intuition Painting?

The simplest definition of Intuition Painting is “free, intuitive expression through the medium of paint.” It is you expressing you, in the powerful, innocent way a child expresses her- or himself but with the added depth of a lifetime of experiences. It is not so much about creating something as it is about releasing what blocks you from your ability to express your true self and your natural creativity. The power and purpose of Intuitive Painting is simply to bypass emotional and energy blocks in the “inner artist” and open up channels of innate creativity and authentic emotional self-expression.


How does it Work?

These sessions invite you to explore with pure creative freedom and express authentically using paint on life-sized easels. By focusing on the process not the product, we let go of perfection, comparison, and control and start trusting our intuition, both inside the studio and out.

Practicing raw expression through the medium of paint, we release, restore, and ground ourselves; we can swiftly process emotional blocks; and we reconnect to sacred wisdom, making way for clarity and new possibilities.

Participants of Intuition Painting experience connection with their own creative imagination, a feeling of rejuvenation, and a deeper sense of connection with themselves. Read Testimonials.


The Practice

The practice of Intuition Art allows you to be intimate and compassionate with yourself, know your deepest needs, and learn to love and treat yourself better. Making art in this way is an amazing tool for discovering your joys, your fears, your wisdom, your self-talk and your blocks. What you bring to the canvas highlights what you bring into your life, how you show up in relationship with yourself, how you hinder or shame yourself, how you get stuck in comparison or perfection, and how you can get around these blocks with new paradigms, trust and practice.


The Results:

  • Let go of perfection & control;
  • Strengthen intuition;
  • Discover your unique visual voice;
  • Feel more energized and empowered;
  • Increase your personal vitality;
  • Reveal limiting beliefs;
  • Release the pressure to perform;
  • Break through creative blocks;
  • Practice mindfulness in a dynamic process;
  • Transform unconscious patterns that don't serve you.

I’ve found the act of making art intuitively quickly becomes a metaphor for your life. Like the saying “the way you do anything is the way you do everything”. The studio becomes the perfect environment for releasing old fears, growing intuition, practicing self-kindness, and freeing your inner joy.
