Hi everyone and welcome to The Limitless Blog. I'm your host, Radhika, and the founder of Jiva More Life. Our mission is to inspire you to believe that you are limitless.
How do you deal with limiting beliefs when you're creating new art?
I try really hard to go in without any preconceived notions because if I try to go and paint something really specific, it usually doesn’t turn out that well. Of if I go in the studio with a time limit, for example, this painting should be done in three hours, then it also doesn't turn out really well. Usually I'm only halfway through at the three-hour mark. Instead, what I try to do is to go in with a very general concept and see what speaks to me and what I create in the moment. Other things that really help me if I'm having limiting beliefs is creating a self care space. For example, I go into a space where there's a lot of windows. That’s something that I love about the art studio that I work in; it has so many huge windows to let the light in. I also like to play my own music, have some snacks, or a sparkling water. Just really get the things that make me excited and that make me happy and comfortable Once I’m comfortable, I create a lot more and then see what inspires me and create from there. To sum it up, when I go into the studio, I may have a general topic, but I try not to limit myself in any sort of way when I'm creating and that includes what my output is going to be.
