Getting to know Elisabeth ORFILA…
How do you deal with blocks and challenges in your creative process?
According to me, blocks and challenges are entirely part of the creative process because they reveal hidden suffering parts of ourselves that need to be healed. I listen to them, express them with my body, in a drawing, or in a ritual and I respect the resistances I can have. For example if I don’t have any inspiration, I surrender and go do something else, respecting the void. I’ve realized how some creations need time, like in a birthing process. It teaches me patience and to follow the path of least resistance as much as I can. I listen to Life’s inspiration in my everyday life and respect the time needed.
Most of all I aknowledge and welcome the blocks as messengers.
What is the biggest transformation you’ve personally experienced through your creative journey?
Creating with Soul Art has allowed me, in a very joyful and playfull way, to reconnect with my inner guidance and gain in self-confidence and independance. I now have a very pleasant way to get over any kind of challenge and that’s very self-empowering.
What role does an artist play in our society?
Artists are messengers beyond words. They can touch people’s hearts through their creations, open to new ways of seeing, thinking, they are often precursors. They allow humanity to evolve in a peaceful way, even sometimes through very hard messages that will touch people deeply and invite them to question themselves.
Art allows an essential freedom of expression.
