My relationship to art and healing is complex and textured with many personal stories close to home as well as those from my professional career.  In my experience, my spiritual evolution is in direct relation to my artistic process.  My self-expression has morphed in its form, yet the reliable resource has consistently been a source of resiliency, growth and ascension to this day.  My artistic process has served me as an outlet moving me from hope to despair and back to hope again throughout my life.  And, my art “products” have served as a living document reflecting my upward spiral.

My exposure to the arts began from birth really, as my father is an active fine artist thus I grew up in a household that supported and fostered both art making and an appreciation for the arts.  I was immersed in a creative atmosphere and was given active permission to “play” in the arts.  My sister was an avid artist and it was through her creating of art that she was able to cope with the pain and suffering that she endured through a terminal illness with grace and ease.  Her fragile life is a strong testimony to the healing and liberating power that art carries.  Art continues to be a central resource to my family’s healing, grieving and transformation from a tragic loss.

As an arts educator for over 14 years, I personally witnessed a multitude of what I call “transitions in consciousness” within the thousands of students that I was able to reach.  My art classroom provided a safe container for their artistic expression to flourish and heal/relieve the suffering from loss, disease, grief, poverty, social injustice and other life threatening situations that many of them faced.  Time and again, it was self-evident that creative expression through the arts provides solace, an inward refuge and for many hope through a shift in awareness and perception.

Overall, art is a potent path of healing both as a practice and a profession for me.  Art, creativity and healing are to me synonymous.  Art is the glue of the Universe and provides a nourishing space for the Soul to rest and take refuge.  More than ever, art and the artistic process serve as the means for the evolution of human consciousness and planetary healing.

“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimension.”

~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Happy Harvest season, Autumnal Equinox and New Moon Friday!  September was an amazing month, full of abundance, overflow and BIG quantum leaps in my world. How is YOUR world, how was your month?  How are you feeling?  What amazing transformations are evolving and leaning into?  I personally have been experiencing so many amazing moments, rich and textured emotions, new experiences and my outer world truly showing up to reflect my inner world.  Whew! Feeling Blessed Out!  Now, we have October on our heels…. we are in our new season of growth and expansion, trans-form-ation, and letting go/receiving.

What I have found to be very insightful are these words from Lena Stevens of The Power Path:“The theme for October is RESET- There are two faces to this month’s theme. The first one is the deconstruction, dissolving, taking offline, shutting down, turning off, letting go, letting down, and allowing things to fall apart.  The second is the re-booting, turning on, flipping the switch, restarting, reconstructing, solidifying, bringing online, resetting and refocus.”

I am choosing to take this time out and unplug, as well as allow this cycle and my own clear inner guidance and voice to reveal each step, each and every day.  One of the skills that I have been learning and practicing this year is being what Cass Phelps calls self referential.  This way of being is simply the art of following my own inner guidance, listening closely to what my innermost knowing and wisdom is telling me and following that implicitly.  Sometimes I will not have the clarity to “know” right away, and that is part of the journey and commitment to leading my life from a self referential orientation.  Waiting out the “pregnant pause” and observing the wave of emotion is the element required for me to allow the clarity to arise.  So beautiful, intriguing and wonder-ous!

As I sign off for now, I leave you with these words:  “It’s a time where we may find ourselves liberated from past conditioning, offered a pathway to really grow into the we-we-know-we-really-are-at-our-core”, Stephanie Gailing of Astrological Apothecary.
