Emotion, Color & Energy


The EmoTrance Art Experience

by Silvia Hartmann


Now it is true that many people have given up on "art" and especially, on abstract paintings, as being elitist, silly, decadent or completely pointless in any sense of reality, but I am hoping that we can change that.

  • All art is essentially an energy transmission device, and that is regardless of what medium or modality is being employed.

Here is a fascinating exercise in contacting, reading and responding to "the energy of a work of abstract art".

Remember the basic EmoTrance ideas of:

1. There is no "good" or "bad" energy, only ENERGY.

2. If it hurts, then there's an injury or a blockage.

3. If you feel nothing at all, there must be a shield!

4. ANY energy form, if it is correctly channelled and processed, can nourish and teach!

So and with this in mind, simply scroll to these paintings, one at a time, and ask yourself, "Where do I feel these energies in my body?"

By all means, show yourself with your hands.

Take a moment and take these energies in, let them flow in, through and out, and when you have established Even Flow, consider how this experience has changed you, how it has affected you and what you have learned in the process.




Emotions, Colors & Energy


1. Scroll your screen so you can see only one picture at a time.

2. Look at the picture and pay attention how it makes you feel.

3. Especially notice WHERE you feel the picture in your body.

Remember to breathe deeply throughout the exercise!

4. You can notice how the colors and shapes from the paintings remind you of certain things, trigger certain ideas or memories, and how this works together with the feelings you are having to create a "like" or "dislike" of the painting.

5. If you want to, you can work with those feelings, ideas and energies so they flow more smoothly. Any good energy psychology method such as EmoTrance or EFT can be used to achieve this. Notice how this also works to "change your mind".

6. Move on to the next painting. Notice how DIFFERENT it feels even though it is essentially the same abstract landscape, only the colors have changed. Notice the difference in the energy from the painting, and also how you respond to this energy.

7. You can work with your responses as in No. 5 for each painting, or simply notice how they affect you.


Now, take a deep breath, relax, and scroll to the first painting.

































































This simple exercise is a very good example to help us notice how we respond to emotion, color and energy in our environments. With a little practice, and by paying attention, we can become aware of what there is, how we respond to what there is, and make changes.

  • We can change how we respond by working with our own emotions and feelings to establish an Even Flow;


  • and we can also change our environments by removing objects which are unhelpful or broadcast types of energy that we don't want to have around,


  • as well as being able to locate other objects which bring energy we find beneficial, nutritious and helpful.

This gives us a lot of flexibility to enhance our environments AND our responses, and brings extra energy, as well as saving energy that is no longer spent on fighting off unwanted influences or wrestling with personal reversals.

And of course, visits to art galleries will become A WHOLE NEW EXPERIENCE.
