Healing Sanctuary.

Tara Chiavetta offered free 15min healing sessions, and I went to sketch and then experience a session for myself. Barbara Gagliardi and fellow local healers were offering their services complimentary on a monthly basis so anyone could experience what healing work is. It was also an opportunity to meet the various healers around the area. In general it was a relaxing evening that opened horizons.

The sessions were designed to tune and balance your body allowing you to feel more relaxed, centered, and grounded. I sat in on the Rumi session before my own. One patron was under covers while the other was just reclined on the table clothed. The healers held their hands over each patron moving to different parts of their bodies without touching them. Crystal singing bowls were illuminated by a warm light making them glow. Celestial paintings adorned the walls.

My sessions begin with a five minute meditation. I had been invited to wear white or any other very light color as spirit works best with light colors. The other advantage visually is that white glows in the black light that illuminated the room. Tara asked me to imagine myself rooted to the earth. She described a glowing beam of energy radiating upwards into infinity. I later did a painting of what I visualized based on the meditation.

Then came my 15min table healing session. I closed my eyes and tried to imagine what the healer might be doing. I sensed her presence but never quite knew what I should be feeling. I suspect like most things I was probably overthinking the experience to fully appreciate it. I was told that I have a violet aura.  Auras are vibrations of energy that are emitted from the body. They take on the form of a variety of colors, including orange, red, yellow, green, violet, blue and indigo. My violet aura implies that I am a person who is compassionate and calm. The other person had a full rainbow of auras, I couldn't over hear what that meant but it must be good.

The conceptual painting I did is on display at Dandelion Communitea Cafe (618 N Thornton Ave, Orlando, FL 32803) for two months. Stop out get some soothing tea and see Dreamscapes, art that is surrealistic, symbolic, or dream inspired. The show  is hung through April 1st. My piece is insanely cheap, because I have started pricing my prints at $1.62 per square inch. The show opening is tonight, February 7, 2018 starting at 7 PM to 10 PM.
