The Power of Art to Heal

This is a really moving video about the healing power of art. I don't think that we always need to use our creativity to express the things that have happened to us. Sometimes we express how we've moved on or other incredible things about life OR just how fun it is to work with different colors and mediums. But I've had these sort of moments when things came through that I could not have consciously chosen and it's a very exciting time when that happens.

I think this video speaks to the power of our intuition and that we all have this creativity within us to do something that surprises us. This is why we don't need to copy someone else (except when we're copying to learn a new technique or something like that) or to worry that we have nothing original within us to bring forth.

We all bring something original forth when we create, just by being who we are!

Hey Ms Froggy. Amazing that I stopped by today, huh? This video was so meant for me to watch it. I can relate to her talking about living a double life...one interior and one exterior, for I am doing that still. One of her paintings made me cry for a moment. I'm sending this to Aleta's twin. She so needs to see it. Thank you!!! xoxoxo
