This is a story of how Art can be used to change your energy. A client of mine (Jackie) had gone into a marriage, only to discover later, that she was not herself in this marriage, so chose to leave it.
As with most people who get married, she had some lovely photos that were taken, that she had no further use for. One of these was a beautiful canvas that she offered me to use to do a painting on. Rather than do this, I suggested that she do a painting over it, to shift her energy in relation to closing out her marriage and energising her in readiness for her new path.
I took Jackie through a process that involved mediation, toning, giving voice to her feelings, taking guidance from within to identify feelings and colours, which she proceeded to use to make her masterpiece. Note that Jackie had never ‘really painted’ before (her words) and found that when I gave her tools other than paint brushes to use, that she felt free to play.
As her painting took shape, she worked through may thoughts and emotions, from sadness, to acceptance to joy.
The closer she got to completing her masterpiece, the more she noted how much her energy had shifted, as she proudly stood back and viewed her handiwork.
She has called her piece ‘Transformation’ for obvious reasons 🙂
