50 Powerful Benefits of Mindful Drawing

The benefits of mindful drawing are complete game-changers. They hand you the keys to completely redesign your life. Some of these benefits kick in fast, while others will take longer to activate.

With consistent practice, these benefits become lasting traits that stay with you FOR GOOD.
They change you from the inside out.

Some of these benefits are lifesaving.
Some are just really nice, life-bettering.

And all of them, are available for you to have for yourself.
When I began unlocking the benefits of mindful drawing – past the age of 40 – I began truly living. Before then I was just existing – often in a very self-sabotaging way – which hurt me and it hurt others around me.

I give full credit to this practice for clearing out the layers of my damaging programs, and I live in deep gratitude every day. And when it activates some of the next-level abilities I talk about below like unity consciousness and enhanced sensory perception? Buckle up and get ready for gratitude overload.
is what
we all
have access to.
Now, I’m not saying that every benefit on this list will happen to you. That depends on many factors, including if you practice consistently and do the work. I am saying that these benefits happened to me, and without a shadow of a doubt I KNOW they’re repeatable.
If you put in the effort, you will see results.

People don’t need to be saved or rescued.
They need knowledge of their own power and how to access it.
The benefits of mindful drawing don’t just affect you. They affect your loved ones. They affect our communities, they reflect in global statistics and they ripple out and affect the entire world.
Each benefit of mindful drawing is a separate piece of your puzzle, and together they make up the complete picture. Gather your pieces. Watch your world come alive as your programs fall away.

This is your game. It’s up to YOU how you play it.
I’ve written about the 50 benefits of mindful drawing that I experienced. Some posts are long, others are quite short. My own story is woven into these posts to show you a real-person example of how it happened to me.

You can read these benefits any way you wish (of course), but here’s a suggestion: Don’t read them from top to bottom – scroll through the list, see what jumps out and start right there.
