Painting opens my heart to joy and frees my body of the pain– Suzie Cheel
The past few weeks I have been waking up with pain where I have my crush fracture and I usually start the day with meditation and EFT. One morning I heard the inner voice suggest :Why not paint out the pain?.
That morning I headed to my studio and was drawn to the red watercolor crayons which then became the background layer for the painting above. I was feeling a little angry if you are wondering about the black shape that now looks like a bomb to me. Sometimes I am a bit like a bomb ready to explode especially when I was cursing the prednisolone –although my friend Ellie Walsh has helped me make peace with the drugs, well almost After completing this painting I did feel some relief and headed off to the beach for a walk and a swim.
The next morning I heard the same message, Why not paint out the pain? and headed to the studio and allowed the colors to choose me. I was quite surprised when the heart below appeared. I then felt a sense of joy and brightness as well as surprise. I conscious that while I was painting I did not notice or feel any pain.
The next day I followed my intuition and again headed to the studio to paint something, this time something quite different. As my friend Joy wrote recently to me : “I observe your journey right now, as your body speaks to you, your heart says yes please to life and continues to create these masterpieces that some don’t create at all….” This was one of those “masterpieces” - not a word I would normally use :). I was following my intuition and trusting. I love this painting below and the many complexities I can see in the painting, I love the colors and on the right I can see the pain path moving out.
The pain did return later in the day. I usually relieve this with a heat pack and an Digital Therapy Machine I found at a local market. I am not taking any pain killers as I found they had limited effect and made me sleepy.
Today I have for the first time in weeks woken up with no pain at my T6 vertebra or in my arm. I am doing arm and spine building exercises, following the Save Our Bones program by Vivian Goldschmidt for my Osteoporosis and some energy medicine from Donna Eden, I listened to her talking with Jessica Ortner recently on the Tapping World Summit 2012.
