Compassion Games 2014: Team 6Degrees of Creativity creative deeds go global

Inspired by beautiful creative vibes and energy of Gretchen Miller I joined¬†her great initiative to take part in Compassion games 2014 with the Team 6 Degrees of Creativity ūüôā

It has been an amazing 10 days adventure creating and connecting to others, oneself and the earth….It is simply beautiful how this global initiative generated awesome secrets agents of compassion to spread the message and make the world we live in ¬†a little brighter with every contribution!!!

So it all started with our daily assignments of creative deeds to make and share:)

The¬†creative deed #1 “Show Us Your Heart!” was the perfect start to connect to the most amazing compassion vibes that connects globally with this initiative!! Gretchen had this fab powerful idea sending in photos of our cutting of a paper heart in team members’ hands. The strong message of utter empathy was right on the starting of the Compassion Games and on the Day of Remonstrance for September 11th…

Next creative deed #2 : “Chalk It Up for Compassion!”… How great to create a piece of something outdoors with chalk so the world could stumble upon …so the message can really go a long way ūüôā

Creative deed #3 “Compassion WordClouding” was real fun and an introduction into wordart design:)

Creative Deed¬†#4 was a fab “Operation Random Acts of Creative Kindness” so operative got an opportunity to make some creative inspiring messages and spread them around….. so I though to share sockmonkey love and kindness with a take what you need flyer that could bright up the day of people encountering it…

¬†Creative deed #5…It was about¬†recognizing a Compassion All Star in our life & community with a creative twist! ¬†So that day I nominated a truly special person as Compassion All Star: my mom:) ¬†and my artsy awards for this special nomination for her:) This process was very emotional….Thank you Gretchen!!!

Creative deed #6 “Creativity& Compassion Quote Hunt”¬†… So by using free online programs one I created something using ¬†a quote that deeply resonates withme…For me one can feel the endless ways of expressive arts getting to the soul!

Creative deed #7 “Compassion Cards of Awesomeness” switched on that beautiful role of ¬†being a Secret Agent of Compassion…Special Secret Agent mission to¬†create anonymous¬†Compassion Cards of Awesomeness to leave randomly ¬†in places… The theme to celebrate in the cards was BEING AWESOME ¬†ūüôā

So while I was on the train I created some cards to distribute in a hospital…. I really loved to see the positive reactions of some people who discovered them…Of course as a secret agent I tried to keep distance LOL:)

Creative deed #8 ¬†“Secret Agent of Compassion- Nature Creative Deed”

Today’s Creative Deed¬† was again linked to Secret Agent of Compassion mission with the goal of showing compassion to nature & the earth…The intent was “to increase your understanding of the interrelatedness in nature” and for us in particular was to document this perspective with a photo. The SAoC mission posted earlier that week that became¬†our mission for creative deed #8: http://secretagentofcompassion.org/2014/09/15/05-2014/

I was inspired with by grounding and earthing acts that really reconnect us to mature and the earth. In particular recalling a beautiful event back in India with a special friend when we planted spouted fruit seeds in the ground and let the eco magic happen:) So this time I sprouted bean seeds and I planted them honoring the earth:)

Creative deed #9 “Compassion Mandala”
What a great mission to create a mandala with our fav¬†material ¬†expressing what compassion means to us… Well for me, given what I could find as was still travelling I managed to get some paints and lil creative bits together and improvized¬†a painting on a wooden board….It kinds of builds up layers through material, in a way creating the fabric and nuances that are connected with compassion.

Creative Deed #¬†10: “Compassion Stickie Note Art”
What a great mission to use Post-It/ Stickie Notes to spread around randomly creative messages about compassion!!! So much fun and good energy coming after a nice walk accomplishing this mission in the neighborhood:)

And to celebrate the last ¬†of the Compassion Games:¬†creative deed #11:¬†“International Day of Peace Flag”!!!
We got to create a prayer flay celebrating this special day letting this reminder spreading its message through the wind…
I love making prayer flags as there is something special about the process and the message they carry. This time I have tried to make a paper one using few things from India and Tibet…Great to celebrate peace on the World Peace Day.

“Being all there” wherever and whenever….

This was inspired by the beautiful prompt over at the circle of Art ūüôā

The ¬†Miyajima Torii is a real special place….the stunning floating gate to¬†Itsukushima Shrine¬†…part of the World Heritage Site on Miyajima Island.

The magic here happens following the tides cycles…when there is low tide one can get there by walking on the mud..then when high tide comes in the¬†Miyajima Torii appears floating on the water….I feel that somehow those moments reconnects with the flow of our invisible Qi and the flow of life….

Love note for the unconscious mind

challengebutton

I have pondered on Lani’s Fun Monday Challenge #30 – We Are Loved….

Focusing on the power of our unconscious mind and the beautiful prompt on our ability to love suggested by Lani….I made this special note for the unconscious mind…

20131212-221700.jpg

What a wicked challenge, thank you Lani!!!

Here is Lani’s prompt :

” Create a love note / art piece for your unconscious. Use this statement if you like or some other statement that will make it feel jolly. If the unconscious is too abstract of an idea, then try creating your piece for a child, perhaps even the child you once were. Take note of inner responses to this activity. “
