If we find ourselves shut in a very dark room, it takes a while for our eyes to adjust. At first we can’t see anything at all. Then, if there is even the smallest chink of light, we begin to get our bearings.
We are able to make out shapes, find our way around and locate the door! Even a tiny amount of light can help us to change our situation, once we have adapted.
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” Edward Everett Hale

Art and Alignment is concerned with connection and expression. It looks at the importance of strengthening our connection to our higher self and engaging with creativity and imagination. Creative activity, when aligned with higher awareness, can bring the messages of the soul into physical expression and become a powerful force for healing. On the Art and Alignment webpage, there is free access to booklets and videos containing personal stories, which reveal a process of growth and healing through creativity. These accounts give a perspective on personal alignment and the soul journey.
There are aids to meditation, which may help people to relax and find a calm place within. Candles, incense, a special corner of a room, music, lighting and aromatherapy oils can all help to create a space and a mood for meditation. Flowers, pictures, objects and crystals are often used to good effect.
