Watercolor Egg Meditation


In the third episode of Your Creative Spirit, Flora Bowley shares a visualization practice utilizing watercolors.

Beginning with a basic conversation and brief meditation about how to protect our energy field through a simple visualization, we’ll follow up with an easy watercolor practice to bring the visualization into physical form by painting a watercolor “egg.”

In the art practice, we’ll play with fluidity and spontaneity, while getting into a meditative and relaxing space. It’s perfect (and very satisfying!) for beginners who have never played with watercolor paints.


  • Watercolor notebook
  • Watercolor paint
  • Watercolor brush(es)
  • Water to clean your brushes


Start by visualizing your personal “egg.” Notice what colors you see and how it feels inside your egg. When you’re ready to start painting, choose one of the colors as your center point and add more colors to your egg as you move outwards from the center point.

Feel free to leave white space between your colors or bump them up next to each other to see how they bleed together. Play around and experiment as you go.
