The Art Ritual: A Pursuit by Marika Reinke (Digital Version)


This is the digital version of a special book written to inspire, provoke and delight you.  I’m very proud and excited about this full color 48 page book with a selection of my art, poems, essays and of course, magic. Each  9″ x 6″ trade book is signed with a message especially for you.


The Art Ritual brings a life of little gifts. Each acrylic painting, watercolor, small pendant and large canvas shares a story of insight and connection. Regardless of size, The Art Ritual encourages us to follow our passion and change the world.

Believe in Magic
Not everything can be explained with our limited senses. Magic is the smallest act; a perfect brush stroke, eye-popping shade of red, the realization of dreams, and the way people interact. Magic produces synchronicity, beauty, and fun. Why not believe?

Cultivate an Inner-Coach
At its surface the creative process is a storm of emotion and activity, but just underneath is eternal calm. This coach comes from the calm. It is gentle, fosters growth, and encouraging. “You aren’t done yet.” It chants, “Keep learning and growing. It is perfectly OK. You are on the right path.”

Pay Attention & Inspiration Unfolds
Stay present and accept abundance. Open fearlessly to potential and beauty. In this mindset inspiration multiplies. It emerges from an epic abstract painting, an original song, a beautiful sunset, an awesome beach run or majestic mountain peaks. The world is fascinating. Look, trust, and inspiration comes.

Trust Yourself
Intuition is a guide best understood without brain but body. It is a silent inner voice whispering to stop NOW or release the floodgates to energy. Trust and listen carefully. Intuition is a quiet wise voice.

Creativity is a Learning Process
There is no such thing as a creative person. There are only people open to learning about the creative process; its mistakes, blunders, wonder and triumph. Commit to learn the tools and techniques of your desire. They will breed creativity.

Let the Vision Emerge
Be clear about your values and act in alignment with them. This clarity allows a vision to emerge. It takes time and patience, but it happens and sometimes the outcome is completely wonderfully surprising.
