Hi, Mary Lelle here. I’m taking a painting class tonight and it’s called, “Sunflowers and Wine.” As you can see, here’s my glass of wine, right next to my canvas. You know, we work hard, we work long hours doing chores at home. We probably have this HUGE to-do list and we take care of others before we take care of ourselves. That creates a life that’s out of balance and when our life is out of balance, our body and our cells get out of balance, too.
Fun is a great way to get back into alignment again. For me, art creates timelessness. I go into this meditative state and forget the world around me. I go within. Art is also a great tool for healing. So anything that’s fun is healing.
If you don’t know my story, years ago I was told I only had a few months to live. I knew I had to change what I was doing because what I was doing wasn’t working. I changed my diet, I saw a number of different practitioners, but what really helped me the most was getting my emotions out. Anything I could do to express my emotions whether it was punching bag, screaming or artwork. Drawing and painting helped me express myself emotionally. It also distracted me from what was going on in my body.
Everything is energy and that includes illnesses in our bodies. The energy of illness is very low. It’s a very low vibration and when we worry about what’s going on in our bodies, that low energy is compounded. But when we distract ourselves, our energy rises. As we know, disease and conditions cannot exist in a body that’s filled with this high energy. And I think that is exciting!
I mean, who knew that fun and art class or roller skating or flying a kite or climbing a tree could help you heal. It doesn’t matter what you choose to do as long as it feels good and it’s uplifting. You have that uplifting energy in you and then you know by those sensations that you’re healing. You don’t have to be great at it. You’ll see as I’m painting, I use one color and then I cover it up with another and another. It doesn’t matter. Just go for it and have some fun!
So get your calendar out and schedule something fun at least once a week. You’ll be happier and you’ll feel better, too.
Go out there and have fun and be well.
