How to Discover Your Best Tool for Artistic Recovery

A relief object

I’ve talked about relief objects and projects a little bit before. If you’d like to read what I wrote, go here. This video explores ways you can find an object that will grant you the greatest release. I hope you enjoy the video. Bonus points if you leave me a comment. Double bonus points if you hear where I did a word swap.

Do you have a relief object? Take a few seconds to tell me what it is and why it works for you below!

    Shawna, great video. Good examples and well explained! I have never thought of needing a relief object for myself, and I think it’s a great idea.

    I work with special needs preschoolers, and noticed today at school that the kiddos have relief objects-we just don’t name them as such.

    When you explained that using a relief object could help with “relief,release, and recovery,” that really spoke to me.

    After pondering what my relief object might be, I think I found it. I’ve been strongly attached to the Celtic trinity symbol in the past year and found a beautiful necklace, and I wear it a lot. The symbol needed to be where I could see it thougj, so the necklace didn’t help. I FINALLY found a leather bracelet and a trefoil knot bead to put on it. I love it, wear it, and see it every day.

    I need to figure out some relief objects. I’ve had some in the past without naming them so but nothing at the moment. Thank you.

      It can be tricky. Have you stopped in a new age shop or art store to look at stones, small sculptures or see if there is any incense that speaks to you? I have several essential oils I use for relief.
