Bringing harmony into your life through coloring

Remember what it was like to lay sprawled out on the floor surrounded by crayons, markers and pencils, filling in the pages of your favorite coloring book?

After finishing a picture, I would hold it up, admire my work and run to show it to my mom and dad.

Feels good

There was something about coloring that just felt good, especially with a large box of Crayola Crayons (especially if it had a Sea Green crayon).

An adult activity

Coloring has become all the rage with adults as demonstrated by the best selling Secret Garden coloring book (which I gave to my daughter last year for her birthday). Experts say that it relieves stress and stimulates creativity.

Maybe because it causes us to unplug from technology, work and multi-tasking. Maybe because it quiets our minds and soothes the spirit.

And the beauty of it is, anyone can do it.

Creating harmony

I see it as a way of creating internal harmony. Anytime we can slow down and be quiet creates a gateway to harmony. A simple activity like coloring can unlock something wonderful inside of us.

Harmony Coloring Book

So I thought it would be cool to create my own Harmony Coloring Book to give away to you. I’ve converted photographs to drawings and provided the photo as a guide (but let your imagination fly, these are your pictures).  Most are mine with some from the internet to provide enough variety. Here are sample pages:
