Broken Heart Transformed Into Art

Posted by on Jan 8, 2017

I am sure you have heard the speech Meryl Streep gave sharing her perspective on the “powerful” man sitting in the most important seat in America while mocking the disabled and many many more. It was fascinating to see how Meryl captivated and touched her audience just by voicing her authenticity. She spoke from a place that held meaning for her. This was a perfect example of the ways we have the power to affect others through the personal energy we hold. The energy she held was of courage, authenticity, expression, empathy, compassion, connection, and expansion to name just a few. When I listened to her I could not help but FEEL inspired by her courage, feel connection for all lives regardless of social status, race, abilities and or disabilities, and feel respect, empathy, and reverence for the role each individual plays. All this occurred simply by listening to several minutes of her speech.

How we think affects how we feel, act, and speak. How we feel, act and speak affects those who interact with us. This is because we are all energetic beings and we interact with one another at an energetic level. Although I don’t know Meryl on a personal level, never seen her in person, and do not know her likes and dislikes, still in just a few minutes of listening to her she had a lasting affect on me.She ended her speech by stating something very powerful and beautiful. She mentioned how her dear friend would say “Take your broken heart and make it into art”. This to me illustrates the power of healing, transformation, and creation.

Many of us have had our heart broken by people who ridicule us, use us, abuse us, disempower us, and make us feel insignificant, worthless, and devalued. Living with a broken heart is like dying daily, it seems pointless. When we are in this place we may feel like that’s all we got and can’t see the possibilities in our hopelessness. We give up and feel like life is too hard and meaningless and even become suicidal. We may become angry or enraged and act out destructively from this energetic space. The possibilities are endless. But what if this broken heart could actually be made into art? What if it didn’t have to be a downward spiral? What if there was something beautiful waiting to be birthed?

Art is beautiful, inspiring, captivating, inviting, moving, connecting, and creative. An artist simply expresses that which is within them that feels true to them. An artist feels what is coming through them and allows it to move through them, the result is creativity. What if our broken heart is just shattered pieces that need a meaningful expression? Perhaps the more painful the experience we have, the greater is the expression locked up waiting to be freed. Perhaps all the pain we carry is only an indication of the emotional energy that is bottled up waiting to be freed. Perhaps we don’t have to stay in our brokenness, or erupt in destructive ways. Perhaps the broken heart can be made into art.

The truth is the broken heart can be made into art. This is the art of transformation and creation. As we feel, and heal, we transform and create. We let go of the old energy, or better said we transmute the old energy. We begin the climb reaching higher and higher. We begin to feel more empowered, and start standing in our authenticity. We begin to inspire others while we create our art. Your life is a beautiful story waiting to be written by your authentic you. What would your authentic self have you write?
