Making your own Inspiration Squares: Painting with Juice, Coffee and Spices

Optimism is known to boost the immune system. You've most likely read about the empowering effects of positive affirmations or receiving and sending uplifting messages. The effect of your thoughts and words on your overall wellbeing has been illustrated over and over again.

My favorite go to books on this subject:

The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy

The Wisdom of Florence Scovel Shinn by Florence Scovel Shinn

These resources guide me in selecting the words and thoughts that resonate with my situation. All the while, I am healing the body with the Gerson Therapy, which means juicing (as many as 13 per day at one time). Juices, coffee and spices became another painting medium. As I cook and juice I create. I brush colors across squares of water color paper, overlapping layers of different hues. When dry, I write my inspirational words in the corners adding illustrations or simple line designs in fine ink marker.

positive affirmations

uplifting messages

give us strength

I pick a card from my collection and focus on one or more words for a day, a week or longer.  I think it, say it, create a mantra out of it.

Following my example you can easily make your own Inspiration Cards.

Preface each word with I AM. The transformation begins!
