Living is an act of creativity. Not just being an artist, writer,
painter but the sheer act of living is a creative force that we often
do not acknowledge. Living consciously and with awareness is an act
of even deeper creativity. On many levels, creativity is an inner
process: what you dream, imagine, and then give physical form to as

Starting a Creativity Journal can help unblock the artist in you and

of music when healing this layer. Bring your focus on the music you
may have put on at the start of your healing session. Music soothes
the soul and calms the spirit layers. "I can express my deepest
truth gracefully, respectfully and confidently. "
The Free Flow of Qi
Qi, often referred to as "life force", or "energy" is that which
flows through all things. Qi is containing, activating, transporting,
protecting and warming. Qi is something that cannot be seen or
