Open To Healing

Open to healing –
create a space for inspiration
delve into the subconscious

Enter with pure intentions
ignore limited capabilities –
no offerings are meager –

Embrace new starts
with faith in ability –
be spurred into action

Self holds the answers
creative expression is key –
no expertise required.

    1. Thank you. I come from the same place as you – living with chronic illness has taught me so much about life, and faith, and resilience. Thanks for commenting. I tried to visit it your site but Word Press said it has been deleted.
