I have experienced the healing power of art, music, writing, touch, and listening. Healing can come through a smile, a look, acts of kindness, forgiveness, and acceptance. It comes in minute amounts or large doses. Opportunities are abundant for healing ourselves and assisting in the healing of others. Art has the ability to touch and heal. Healing can channel the divine through to the material world, working with spirit as writers do with words and as musicians do with sounds. These are a few sacred things that belong to humans.
A mother uses her energy to calm and soothe a child, a plant uses the energy of the sun to produce what it needs to grow. We enter and exit other people's energy fields as we move throughout our days. Their energy can "stick" to us if we are not producing a strong enough field around us. Some of it moves through us like the energy infused in the food we eat that is prepared by others. How we digest it, fend it off, allow it in and comingle with it depends on how we are taking care of ourselves.
Are we eating in a way that is creating health, vitality and joy? Are we moving our bodies in a way that is strengthening, nurturing and considerate of our personal needs? Are we taking time to still our mind, listen compassionately to others and to the sounds of nature? Or are we abusing our senses; vision - with overuse of computer and tv, taste - junk and sweets, hearing - artificial sounds and talking?
I'm thinking about these things. I enjoy using the tools I've learned through ancient teachings to bring balance to our modern lives. I'd love to have a conversation with you and begin to crack your code, discover what, if anything you need to live more optimally in today's world. We have the healing inside of us that we need.
