How do you heal with art?
After being sick and unable to move more than 30 minutes a day for a few years with fibromyalgia, auto immune malfunctions, lead poisoning, and whatever else the doctors had not diagnosed, I turned a corner. Those corners in our life. One day you follow the directions and listen to the experts, the next you have to take it on your own shoulders and do what just makes sense. Scared and in pain I turned that corner. I stopped all medications, supplements, hormones, shots, IV treatments, and excuses. The pain was awful. And it subsided. I started working out 2 minutes a day (now quite a bit more, but two minutes then was hard as oh my). I got rid of chemicals in cleaning, eating, everywhere I could.
I had been creating art since I was knee high to a grasshopper. The great shows that came through museums were mostly missed until…. the impressionist show at the Denver Art Museum. My husband made sure we got to go enjoy that. I moved slowly through, because of pain, and because I wanted to see the strokes. I found out that the canvas had areas of no paint at all. The perfection was strokes and grooves and color and emotion, not primarily image. When we got home I felt better. This was the cornerstone of a complete cure.
Unnoticed I was getting better.
There is a complete process that generally got created to sustain and keep moving forward on my healing journey. I think it works like this. Your left brain that holds your schedule and others wants and needs of you right next to your stress and negative talk spirals is also the side that heals you completely naturally from within. When you look at or create art and get fully into that “artist brain” your right brain takes the wheel and all that stuff in the left goes quiet. It is like you go somewhere else entirely. This frees up the Left brain to do that self-healing.
The path to the complete Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and CFS Cure has many little components. You get into the sub-conscious, use the right intent and speak the truth of your perfect outcome and correct a bunch of negative tornadoes that threaten to take you into unhappy spirals. Visualizing and imagry is very effective in a doctor, drug, diet, and excercise free way to get back to your perfect health.
I create art that uses 15 distinct looking techniques that I have found help you immerse in the act of looking at art.
My husband and I are starting to teach people now how to do all those things I have learned from the patient and caregiver perspectives. If you are interested in this please shoot an email and we will send you the latest stuffs. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kids learn so easy and using what I have learned about visualization I created the characters that will be going on many adventures Bernie and Babs and put them into picture books for 4–99 year-olds to use to visualize their own healing. The first book is out and you can find those at www.grandmaness.com
Twice a month I do attempt to wax poetic on topics that are influencing my work and based upon the fact that I like people and do believe in them. When you sign up for the VIP list on the homepage this will get directly to you and I would love to chat and hear your perspective too.
Feel free at any time to drop me a note (contact at the bottom) If you would like a speaker on self-healing, wish to show a line, want to collaborate, or just got something important to say. Thanks for looking.
