There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.

Visionary Art to Open Your Mind and Lift Your Spirit

Visionary Art to Open Your Mind and Lift Your Spirit

Art is amazing, but you probably already knew that. Personally I've never quite been one to consider myself a great appreciator of "fine art," until I finally discovered art that makes my heart sing and my soul float.

Visionary art. 

The kind that does not simply represent what is visible but goes much deeper to portray what we intuitively feel is present yet unseen. The kind of art that elevates the spirit into a place of wonder, awe, and delight and shows that we are much more than what we think we are. You could even call it spiritual art because it evokes the universal spirit without assigning religion. But I just call it beautiful.

Art, in general, is something many of us who are not "artists" consider to be a unique talent we simply don't possess. But that's not true, we are all artists in one way or another. The throat chakra is the home of creative expression and communication, manifesting in countless ways when it is open and flowing. Though fine art may not be your thing, it could become your thing if you're drawn to it at any age, or to any other means of expression you're compelled to explore.

What is your art? What is your vision?

You'll never really know how much creativity you possess until you begin to let it out, so do it, see what happens. 

The artists below were able to capture something extraordinary that I hope will inspire you as much as it has inspired me. Spend a moment with each one and see what comes up for you, maybe it'll spark your own creative energy in some way.

In my research I came across many more inspiring pieces, but not all linked back to the right sources to give fair credit to the artist. Still, they are worth sharing and for those I created a Pinterest board for visionary art around the web, if you love this sort of thing I welcome contributors to this board. If you have any favorite visionary artists, feel free to comment below!
