The Power of Art
The arts have always been one of the leading sources of healing power in the world. The arts work by encouraging a person’s brain waves to alter attitude and psychological balance. A multitude of art forms exists today, and each of them has unique way of bringing inspiration and hope into people’s lives.
Writing allows an artist to share his or her stories with the world. Such stories can be in the form of poems, blogs, short stories, song lyrics and more. Writers have spiritual power in the tips of their fingers. They have the ability to turn a frown into a giggle and a tear into smile. People who want to give to the community can offer their artistic writings to web sites and organizations that will find meaning in their eloquent words. If one person in the world finds hope in a piece of writing, then the work was worth the labor to the artist.
Painting gives the painter a sense of accomplishment, and it allows that person to stay in tune with his or her inner artist. Painting can be used as a form of therapy for the painter or for the people who are admiring the work. A picture can truly be worth a thousand words. A stick figure could jar emotions about family values or personal goals. An image of a bright sun can give a person instant inspiration. Snowflakes can remind someone about the beauty of natural acts.
Singing is another major art form that can touch the lives of many people. A singer’s voice can transfer emotions to the people who are listening to the symphony. A song can move someone to the point in which that person finds the motivation to keep living. A song can also encourage a person to stop and honor a lost loved one. Additionally, a song can make a person experience love and peace at the same time.
Persons who have artistic abilities can volunteer to share them with the community. The gesture is a step toward making the world a better place. Volunteers can also donate musical items and artistic items to people who are less fortunate than others are. SingForHope.org is an example of an organization that networks with groups of volunteers to promote community bonding and happiness. Such organizations believe that art heals souls, and it should be spread to as many people in the world as possible.
