Drawing Beyond Heartache - "A Key to Happiness" Digital Art by Z-art-Z ! Studios
holds many, many challenges. Some are pleasant. Others are heart-wrenching— the
loss of a lifelong partner, the pain of betrayal, the death of a parent or
child. Possibly you feel disconnected or encumbered. At any time, you can simply choose to lead with your heart, for there lies the key to happiness.
This small but substantial book offers a self-guided experience - one of transforming heartache into peaceful presence. In a simple process you can “re-wire” your “circuitry” to energize or re-energize that very peaceful presence— on many levels.
“ . . . spiritual beings having a human experience . . .”
1. Read a verse from Drawing Beyond Heartache.
2. Take a deep breath.
3. Ask for guidance.
4. Focus on an image(s) the verse brings to mind. This could be positive or negative.
5. Hold on to that image until, at some level, a feeling or sensation arises.
6. Allow yourself to release the feelings, sensations, images- thus externalizing the experience, and triggering a new perspective.
7. Record the image in some form- a drawing or a doodle- but let it take form.

YOU can draw from a very
"partnership of mind, heart and hand"
Research has shown that as you hold on to a mental picture then release it into some viewable form, a shift in neurochemical responses can occur. The result can be a salutary new perspective— one achieved, in this case, through a personal and deliberate partnership of mind, heart and hand.
THE OBJECTIVE: Use your imagination, then create an image(s) prompted by what you "see" or "sense" in a verse you read. Both evocative and FUN.
... here's to the very beneficial collaboration with the “muses” of imagery and verse... .
of this eBooklet demonstrate how to access and activate that very change through a process we
refer to as the re-visioning technique™.
The re-visioning technique is a synergistic process. It employs
focused intent, figurative language, and image-making. It can release and
reveal empowering perspectives.
Drawing Beyond Heartache can confirm that you have been blessed with wonderful qualities. You, personally, can create an atmosphere of equanimity— bring balance to hand, heart, and mind. Within that context, there is always the potential for change and compassion as you activate the re-visioning technique.
... what others have said about Drawing Beyond Heartache ...
What a beautiful, healing process! As I read the
introductory pages, so many things resonated with my head, heart and soul. What
a profound gift to give to a world full of broken, distracted, suffering
people...At this moment in time, janeAnne's
expression "tangled emotions" exquisitely captures the state of the
four most important relationships of my life. So, with that in mind, I read the
The first several lines are what captured and kept my focus:
"A journey draws near. You are going to the very edge
where boundaries blur and intertwine
like a verse that may, or may not rhyme.
In such a place, the I-in-We, our hearts align.
So, feeling this, I take your hand. Your heart is mine."
I take your hand. Your heart is mine.
As I made my request, I saw one heart shared by two, and as
I sketched (with no idea how I was going to capture this on paper) the hands
being held--which I drew first-- became the bottom of a large heart that was
formed between the bodies of a man and woman kissing--but very roughly
sketched, with rounded bodies heart-shaped around the shared heart between
them. A combo of realism and suggestion and abstraction.
