The Healing Power of Creativity

Some of us may only be able to draw                                                                                             stick figures, and those trombone lessons celldivisionin middle school may have seemed more like a form of punishment than art, but we all have the ability to create. Yes, some of us are more artistically creative than others, but we all have the ability to create our lives, and what we create greatly affects our health.

On the physical level, most of our cells are continually turning over, re-creating themselves multiple times during our lives. Different types of cells change over at different rates, but on the whole, the bodies that we have today, are not the same bodies we had seven years ago. Think about it…if today we begin to make conscious choices to eat better and eat well, get proper exercise, open our hearts to engage in emotionally healthy relationships, and do whatever else each of us has said, or hoped, or promised to do to live healthier lives physically, emotionally, and spiritually, in seven years time we can all be re-created!

Every day we are creating ourselves, from new cells to how we express ourselves to the world. It is an on-going process of life. Nourishing ourselves and surrounding ourselves with all that is nurturing and all that which brings beauty into our lives and joy into ours and others’ hearts will heal us, and often in ways that we didn’t know we needed to be healed.

George Bernard Shaw said: Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

    Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. Nice post. I am of the belief if we are not using our creative minds in our lives it will use us, and not always in healthy ways.
