I believe that art has the power to heal. whether it is during the process of creation or by allowing yourself to be vulnerable and immersing in the world of another's creation.  If art can evoke a range of emotions, art can certainly heal.  When pure energy flows Through the heart and soul of the maker's instrument, into material, the pivotal moment of transference and transformation in this energy, manifesting into creation, is ultimately magic.  As a result this magic, which is uniquely imprinted onto all works of art, enables the piece itself to become a conduit that serves a higher purpose for the universe. 

There is magic in every form of art and there is art in every form of magic.

We are not provided with wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness which no one else can take for us, an effort which no one can spare us.
— Marcel Proust
