When engaged in something creative, such as Art, Painting, Music, Dance, Writing, or Photography, it has profound healing affects. Creativity literally affects every cell in your body and instantly creates a healing physiology that changes your immune system and blood flow to all your organs. It also immediately changes your perception of your world. It creates a change in your attitude, emotional state, and pain perception. Creativity creates hope and positivity and can also help you cope with difficulties. It can transform your outlook and way of being in the world.
Scientific studies tell us that being creative heals by changing your physiology and attitude. The body’s physiology changes from one of stress to one of deep relaxation, from one of fear to one of creativity and inspiration. Self expression through creativity puts you in a different brain wave pattern, which in turn affects a your autonomic nervous system, hormonal balance and brain neurotransmitters.
In fact it is now known by neuro-physiologists that art, prayer, and healing all come from the same source in your body. They all are associated with similar brain wave patterns, mind body changes and they all are deeply connected in feeling and meaning. Art, prayer, and healing all take you into your inner world, the world of imagery and emotion, of visions and feelings. This journey inward is deeply healing.
For healing comes to you from within, your own healing resources are freed to allow your immune system to operate optimally. This is one way of freeing your healing energies and can be crucial to healing. So get your creative juices flowing on your journey to a happy, healthy, balanced life.
