A Journey Of Creative Healing
Can you recover from life’s serious setbacks, or even debilitating illness, by exploring daily creative projects? One woman, now in remission from multiple sclerosis for several decades, explores how she regained good mental and physical health by acting on a powerful intuitive message.
‘I need to put my focus on being creative. Yes, a creative project. I need to create something new each day. It doesn’t matter what – I simply need to focus on the planning and joy of creativity.’
Mary Atkins was a young mother of two small children when her husband was tragically killed in a light aircraft accident. Her body, already exhibiting signs that something was amiss, bore the brunt of this tragedy and at the age of 27 she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Doctors told her she would be wheelchair-bound within months.
But that’s not what happened.
Instead, Mary recovered. Her journey to wellness began when she acted on a powerful intuitive voice that suggested she undertake a strict daily program of creative expression – to plan, create or do something she had never done before. Her daily creative projects were diverse: from music appreciation to creative writing, from cookery to crafts and physical activity. Within twelve months she could once again walk without aids. She has now been in full remission from MS for more than fifty years.
In A Journey of Creative Healing, Mary shares her remarkable story – and those of other survivors who have endured equally debilitating emotional and physical shocks – and reveals how listening to your intuitive voice, exploring what you love in all its guises, can help deliver recovery from overwhelming grief and profound illness.
“Personal tsunamis have occurred in people’s lives right across our planet and throughout history. For many such an event is so devastating they never recover. But that was not the case with Mary Atkins. Mary has written a beautiful, honest and inspiring story of recovery and it should be read by anyone faced with adversity. And isn’t that everyone?
In modern society the voice of the traditional wise woman is no longer silenced. Mary speaks with confidence about the role intuition and creativity played in her transformational healing journey. Her book is thoroughly researched with citations from contemporary writers and inspirational quotes from traditional sources.
The example of Mary Atkins’ life journey is testament to the ancient Greek maxim, ‘Know thyself’–and the positive outcomes that ensue, if one has the courage to walk that path. – Dr Johnathon
