“Art opens the closets, airs out the cellars and attics. It brings healing.”
Does your life need a little dusting? Does it need the spark of creativity? Mine did. I was really stuck in a hard pattern of binge eating. Night after night, with no relief. Last April marked my entrance into art therapy.
By nature, I am not a very artistic person. I keep scrapbooks, but they are just to my particular liking. I was very into music as a child. Honestly, I cannot even draw a straight line WITH a ruler!
However, that is not the purpose of art therapy. The final products that are created are not the purpose of the activity. The point is the process in which you go through to create.
Art can be a mirror to what is going on in your inner world. It can help you explore your unconscious thoughts, uncomfortable and overwhelming exiled feelings. Using art can bring these these thoughts and feeling to life, in a manner than different than writing or conversing.
“Creativity healed me. I don’t know that I could think of any word that I get more inspired by than the word healing.” ~SARK
How do you express your creativity?
