What is art?  Here’s a partial definition from Wikipedia.

Now what does art mean in Healing Art?   We use the visual art of drawing and painting along with writing/printing to express our emotions, ideas and trigger memory for people with cognitive changes.

Red Clay Necklaces

Sharing two of my necklaces. Just playing around with red clay to make these medallions to use with drops of essential oils.

To do today: find something creative to do, for at least one minute. Whatever you want.

Results: frees your mind.

Let’s Oil Up!

I’ve so totally gotten into using Doterra Essential Oils while I create. Staying focused with InTune and Passion for increased creativity. Using on my wrists and behind my ears. Also diffusing my air with Lavender and Peppermint to add a calm. Loving this.

(I’m making medallions and beads to wear in necklaces. Will be placing drops of essential oils onto the dry clay art. Liking this sooooo much.)

How’d you like to open your door to stress reduction?   Let’s begin with the cause of your stress. Are you overworked, sleeping little, worried about your family, struggling at work, overweight, or just plain worn out.

I was worn out when I was my mother’s caregiver.  For a year I woke up several times during the night to, “Eileen!”   Mom lived with me.  I was was too overwhelmed by taking care of her.  I couldn’t see beyond this.  I was so tired.

Sit down.  Set your timer to five minutes.  Close your eyes.  Now imagine yourself sitting on top of a mountain taking in the warmth of the sun. Feel the healing as you take in the sounds of the moment.  Can you imagine the wind whirling, birds tweeting and other sounds of nature?

Five minutes are up!  How do you feel?  Calmer? More focused? More ease? Are you smiling?   You’ve just visited nature to calm and relax  Repeat this whenever you need a moment for yourself.

How to: Close your eyes and imagine yourself on top of a mountain taking in warmth and sounds of nature.  Relax and appreciate this time for yourself.
