Ends and Odds

This December seems to be shaping up to be quite an event-filled month for me. Not only is it my birth month, but it's turning out to be a month for creativity and abundance!

My Abundance Box Workshop is on December 22 (see previous post), and there are just two spots left! If you have an interest in focusing on your hopes and dreams for the new year, consider signing up!

Speaking of creative endeavors, I am accepting submissions for my upcoming Winter 2008 "Healing Nest" Newsletter. The writing/art prompts are as follows:

Art Prompt:
When was the last time you fingerpainted? I will guess that for many of you, it has been many years—too many years! This art exercise is all about expression and tapping into your kinesthetic self. Color, gesture, motion. Try fingerpainting any pain you are experiencing in your body. What color is your pain? Feel free to be messy and express whatever it is you need to express. Now, paint your good health. What shapes and colors represent your optimal health? And how are these paintings different from one another? Are there any similarities? Non-toxic children’s paints are the best to use, for they are better for your skin and easier to clean up.

Writing Prompt:
Did you know that the strongest muscle in the human body (for its size) is the masseter? The masseter is located in the jaw and it is our major chewing muscle. When I massage this area on my clients, very often I find the masseter to be quite tight and tense. I consider the jaw a Fifth (Throat) Chakra element, which has to do with communication, creativity, and expression. For this writing exercise, write in the voice of your jaw. Is your jaw cranky or bubbly? Does it complain of aches and pains or is it pleased with the way you treat it? See what emerges when you let the strongest muscle in your body speak. What does it have to tell you?
