I have wondered if something really unique and special would come out of the tragedy I have experience over the past two and a half years. Surviving and recovering from a head injury is no joke even though I tend to laugh at myself all the time! haha!
One of the best things that I have experience since my head injury is the power art has to heal. It has been easy for me to understand how focusing on painting can distract you from aches and pains. I can also easily imagine how painting and drawing can be done as a dynamic meditation which relives you from stress.
I had no idea that art can heal even deeper than a distraction and or stress reliever. When done in a very specific way art can be used to super charge your entire body. Flooding it with what feels like electricity and pure life energy. Words fail when attempting to describe this experience even though it is something that is repeatable over and over again.
Using art to heal gives the artist the opportunity to dynamically improve quality of health while crafting and honing artistic and creative skills. I live more fully because of art. It is my heart and it is my soul and I am THRILLED to discover it possesses such powerful healing potential.
