NOTES ON HEALING
One of the greatest struggles in a healing process is
to forgive yourself and others and release any energy from past hurts
If you are choosing this doll to symbolize new beginnings and your choice
to step on a WISDOM PATH, it will be important to confront fear, let go
and move on with your life.
If this doll represents that choice suggest that you
make some symbol of what you are releasing, letting go of.
This can be a small doll, a letter, a stone, anything that can
symbolize what you are letting go of.
Once you have chosen this symbol spend time with it putting
“in” it all that you want to release. When you completed this take an action that represents
releasing it (burning, burying, tossing into a lake)…..let it go.
You may want to ask a trusted friend to go along with you when you
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:
What are you holding onto?
Are you holding in any secrets?
What are you holding onto that you know you must
release in order to move through the
pain and heal?
What is your body telling you you must do to heal?
What feelings are you holding for others?
What tarot card represents this pain?
What is the meaning of this disease? Illness?
What colors and shapes symbolize this?
A woman I know had a dear friend who was struggling with ovarian
cancer. This woman had purchased another one of my dolls and knew my
work. She asked her friend if would make her a doll. I asked what would this doll
represent and she said "New Beginnings".
Winter Solstice is the doll I made for her.
Winter Solstice is a time to acknowledge that there is love, hope, and
healing in the world as long as you make the space and time for it.
It is the promise of the future. There is magic to this sacred
time...take time and believe.

She holds small sticks symbolizing connection with Mother Earth
She has symbols on her abdomen of the
ovaries and uterus that reflect light inviting focus and prayer.
THIS “HEALING” DOLL is an image
of the solution.
Any thoughts about this “healing
image” need to be focused on what you are moving toward (remember you
made an image of what you are letting go)
Once you released the old do a small
ritual to welcome healing energy into your body.
Find a blue candle.
Perform a small ritual in the presence of the doll and say
Blessed be, thou creature made by art.
By art made, by art changed.
Thou are not a doll but a symbol of my hope.
I name thee ___________ Name
And ask that you symbolize a move
My bringing power into my body and mind
Awaken my connection to my heart, my will and my spirit
In all the worlds.
