Tune Into Art Therapy at Global Healing Exchange by Joyce White

Before journaling or art making, I begin a ritual of stretching a ritual of stretching my neck back and forth, and rolling my head in a circled while thinking about what it is I want to write about or work on. I found it best to unclothe myself of negative doubt, and invite new ideas and boundless energy into my body. I often say a prayer for guidance and inspiration.

When in tune with my inner artist, I am unstoppable. Strong. Able. Creative. I think about how hard my hands and fingers have worked for me; and, how often they gave me a sense of fulfillment. I thanked God for my natural abilities and prayed to be a tool of his love and creativity. If you are hurting and needing some tender loving care, try expressing yourself by doodling, scribbling, drawing, painting, sculpture and/or photography. They all allow you to tape into a source of inner wisdom that can provide you guidance, sooth emotional pain and revitalize your being.

Kneading clay is pure therapy not only for our souls but for our tired arthritic hands.
