People, Play… and an Artist’s Way



People, Play… and an Artist’s Way



Greetings everyone! One of my New Year’s intentions was to have more fun and joy in my life. Below are a couple of quotes and a prayer to help us to bring out the second or sacral chakra (pronounced cha-kra or sha-kra) passion so that we can expand and spread our wings! The color of the chakra (energy center) is orange for creativity, passion, sexuality and sensuality.

Let’s soar together!


“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”

~ Plato

“The body heals with play. The mind heals with laughter. The spirit heals with joy.”

~ Gail Kellstrom


The Song I’ve Been Singing:

 You can bend but never break me
Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I’ll come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul
Yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price

But look how much I gained!

If I have to I can do anything
I am strong
I am invincible
I am woman!

– Helen Reddy “I am Woman”



(God, Universe, Nature, Divinity, Self, Higher Self, Spirit Guides, or whatever your belief is),

We call on you and ask to be of greater service to you,
And to our fellows
We offer ourselves to you as instruments.
We surrender to you our old ideas.
We open ourselves to your creativity in our lives.
We welcome your new and more expansive ideas.
We trust that you will lead us.
We trust that it is safe to follow you.
We know you created us and that creativity is your nature and our own.
We ask you to unfold our lives
According to your plan, not our own.
Help us believe that it is not too late
And that we are not too small or too flawed
To be healed—
By you and through each other— and made whole.
Help us to love one another,
To nurture each other’s unfolding,
To encourage each other’s growth,
And to understand each other’s fears.
Help us to know that we are not alone,
That we are loved and lovable.
Help us to create as an act of worship to you.


(Adapted from An Artist’s Way, Julia Cameron)
