Art Heals: The Healing Power of Creativity

The Healing Power of Creativity

Art is a reflection of the soul, creativity is a process that allow us to create that experience. Wouldn't you agree?

I have always been intrigued by its workings, and how exhilarating a creative experience can  be.

Are you as intrigued as I am?

Picture this:

"Each brushstroke is a stride towards self-understanding. Every hue you merge, every tone you  mix, uncovers an emotion within you in each layer."


"When you listen to a song that you love- you are not just listening with your ears, but your entire body, your five senses and your emotions. When all these are activated together with the song, it takes us back instantly to a time and place that is significant to us."

Now imagine experiencing this, coupled with going inward, giving in to your inner child calling you to sing out loud or dance and move like no one is watching (I do it when no one is watching too, haha!)- and you send out that healing energy to that time and place. 

If its a painful memory- sing out loud and imagine a big hug that you are giving to that past-self of you. 

If its a beautiful memory- dance and sing and relive every moment and use that memorable feeling as a point of reference whenever you want to access your flow state.
This is how powerful our creative energy can be for us when we allow it. 

Art and Creativity is meant to be expressive, and play- it is as simple as that. When you approach it with a non-rigid and non-technical mindset, you get to experience it its purest form. 

Personally, for me, Intuitive Art has always served as a mystical instrument for self-healing and recovery. 

Whether it is Recovery from a burn out,

or a Recovery from rigidity.

Recovery from our inner-battles:- the voices in our minds that we constantly struggle with almost on a daily basis.

Hey, do not feel bad, because we all share this experience together. That's just part of a human experience.

Intuitive Art.

I have always been an advocate for intuitive art, in the form of painting. 

Intuitive painting grants me the freedom, yet challenges me to confront my rigidity to allow myself to be me on the canvas. 

Intuitive painting as a tool- it is akin to having a conversation with your inner child, using colours, lines, shapes and symbols as words to describe a feeling or a thought- allowing it to take form. 

Intuitive art rekindles the forgotten spark of creativity- liberating our minds from restrictive beliefs. 

In my intuitive painting sessions, I will be your guide in this voyage of creative breakthrough. 

Art and Creativity is such an important ritual to me that I hold so dear to my heart. I often tell people that I cannot imagine a life without it. I enjoy it so much that I strived to hold space for everyone and their inner-child to come out and play to heal. 

Ever since I started teaching intuitive art, my aim is to simplify the intricate notion of being creative. It is never about the result, only how you feel and what you experience in the process. 

"You do not need to be an artist to create. All that is required is an open heart and an adventurous spirit."


Your journey to self-improvement and recovery commences here.

Looking forward to seeing you fellow creators!
