The arts heal, both the creator and the one experiencing the creation. And right now, I think you will agree we all need some healing. Creating moves you from your normal state of being and helps you enter a space that is filled with an energy that heals—body, mind, and spirit. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. Paper and pen or crayons are a good start. I recently decided to explore watercolor painting. I have always wanted to learn how to make this sort of art and now I plan to move into time every week when I can practice using color in a new-to-me manner of exploration and experience. It doesn’t have to fulfill some idea of “fine art.” It simply needs to be an expression of a vision that is unique to you. Feel yourself embraced by the energy that begins to flow through you, creating a space through which you can step away from the mundane and into a suspended moment in time where you can discern the energy of your spirit guiding you as you create. The energy you are feeling is the love energy through which the Creative Spirit brought everything into being. That is the energy you also tap into when you create.
