Creative Spirit

Being in nature, listening to the birds, observing the colours of the leaves, smelling the refreshing eucalypts and touching the bark, petals and seed pods connects me to Earth, to Gaia and to the Divine. That connection brings a vitality that I relish. I receive this connection from my own garden and from many places where there is growth, love, tranquility, plants and animals. Being in gardens and nature lifts my spirit, but more than that, it heals.
My body has an autoimmune disease of the blood. I am in pain and disabled. It restricts my activities and influences my mind and spirit. I am embedded in the large, confusing and overwhelming health system.I have multiple specialists, treatments and medications and have undergone so many tests and scans that I cannot count. I have had multiple visits to hospital. Yet still, I continue to have pain, inflammation and joint damage as well as anxiety and migraines. I continue to take my meds and see my doctors but I have realised that I am on a journey of learning. Having chronic pain and illness changes one’s perspective on life, love and the world. This perspective is sculpting a new state of being. My journey involves embracing and exploring creativity, art, textiles, faith, love, divine feminine, nature, gratitude, energy healing, kindness, hope, prayer, meditation and self-love. I plan to tend and care for each of these things in my Creative Spirit Garden and it is this spiritual journey that I wish to document in this blog.

  1. Thank you for sharing this! Trying to live a normal life with a Chronic Illness can be challenging and well frustrating! It is truly amazing what we can learn to deal with in life and the strength we all have, that is sometimes hidden. I have been battling Multiple Sclerosis for 16 years now and it has had its ups and downs, but I try to hold on to my positive attitude. I started my blog 2 months ago and it has been a great experience. I have been able to communicate with so many wonderful and amazing people that really understand what I go through. I have set a goal for myself that I will achieve because I am stubborn and determined. I am going to one post every day for at least one month! I hope if you choose to follow my blog, you will enjoy! I look forward to reading more of your posts! Take care!!
