Healing Through Art
Art is a science. All kinds of art have a radiant tool to heal body, soul, mind and emotions. Art can be anything that a person creates, in the form with paint, words, song, dance, music etc. I believe art has a natural healing component of its own. The deed of creating art can be the source of relaxation, a therapeutic relief, a meditational peace or just a pleasant diversion.
Art therapy can also help people with their social endurance. The benefits of art therapy in these types of situations can be with the people who spend more time in solitary or are shy, or who, for some reason or another, have difficulty with functioning within the social circle. Principally, art therapy can improve the lives of people by helping them to improve their mental, emotional, and even physical states. It nurtures them with stability and consistency. It allows them to travel beyond the horizon to the boundless journey towards the earth, water and air. It raises the quality of life for people.
Art therapy is making use of art for healing within a professional relationship, by people who experience illness, distress or challenges in living. Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, people can increase awareness of self and others cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences; enhance intellectual abilities; and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of art making. Art therapists work with people of all ages: individuals, couples, families, groups and communities. Visual art, music and dance are important expressions for this variety of therapy. Visual art therapy can be a mixture of drawing, coloring, painting, sculpting and pretty much everything else you can think of that is artistic. Music therapy can be a mix of playing instruments, listening to music, and singing. Dance therapy utilizes dance and movement. These things people love to do as hobbies, so why not use it to better YOU and show yourself some love?
Few years back, I still remember, when I was ill and on complete bed rest, my life shattered and changed and little hope for recovery. I was trying to find something outside myself to ease my pain. It was a deep turning point in my life. Then I realized that I have my own dream and a clear vision towards art. Then, there was a miracle. One day, one beautiful morning my family took me to my studio and gave me a brush to make art. It was a ray of hope— something that awakened me. It energized me so much that I felt alive again. I started painting every day slowly and steadily. Then the day came when my doctor told me that I can start my work again with an unbelievable experience of healing through art.
My life was on a spiritual path through art to fill a destiny that was unfolding. I began to realize that I was painting each pages of my life. The science of healing through art is a growing field that is being more widely accepted, so it is also an opportunity as a career field! Be energetic, be creative, and be expressive and give art therapy a beautiful try.
It’s a direct miracle from God. Accept and stay blessed always
