Can My Art Help Heal? by Brooke Reidt

WOW it has been nearly a decade as an eden advocate, life really moves at light speed sometimes.

Posting here is a good way to stop and reflect. Being an eden advocate has really allowed me so many opportunities to grow and share my art with people globally I’m so blessed and feel so grateful, it’s difficult to move forward without meditating on that for a minute.

Let’s face it I love painting, drawing and creating and feel so blessed that I am able to wake up and mostly do just that everyday!  I want to share the process of creating with you! When asked to guest blog I got really excited and decided I wanted to spread out sharing the process of creating from start to finish (amongst other things.) I intend to start and finish one painting while I guest blog!

The first step in my process of creating is the initial inspiration. I’m inspired by so many things, people, places I visit, stories I hear, music, experiences, pretty much everything that impacts my life. Some inspirations really pervade me day after day until I create something or paint it out. Right now this inspiration is invested in a friend who has dedicated his life to heal, only to really need some healing himself. His story has been haunting me. My friend Durek Verrett who is a Shaman needs another operation stemming from many in the last few years. Durek really needs a kidney transplant to continue his battle to live. There’s a lot of details, some are very positive and others I can’t wrap my head or heart around but the fact is, he’s been fighting just to live for almost as long as I’ve been an advocate!

I’m going to paint this painting for Durek. Next week I’ll open an auction and see if this painting can make any small contribution towards helping heal this beautiful being.

Meanwhile he has an online campaign closing this week. Sooooooo so close to meeting his goal!

Have you ever met someone who you felt was so stunningly beautiful inside and out? Who just being in their presence feels healing and so spiritually refreshing? This is Durek. Being in his presence surrounds you with love and light that words cannot define.

I could go on and on about Durek, his story and what a beautiful spirit he is but here’s a link to a video and extensive details of his condition, please share this!

Please read his full story and help him move down this path of healing.
