The Natural Healing Show : Testimonials
Sian is one of our artists who will be offering Art Readings (prophetic art) in Healing Rooms. Here is Sian’s feedback from her work at The Natural Health Show.
Special Remembrances the Natural Health Show weekend at the Park Hotel, May 9 & 10th, 2015. Many, many amazing things happened over this weekend and I’ll relate some of those now out of several that come to mind.
A lady came over with I think her sister and having prayed to the Holy Spirit for a revelation for her I heard the word ’faith’ and saw a cross with a dove in front of it with light radiating around the dove in front of the cross. I told her what I had heard and seen and she began to cry and told me that her children’s names were Faith and Dove (in another language). I had a sense that her children were really loved by God and so shared this with her as I drew the image of the dove in front of the cross with brilliant light radiating all around it. I felt it really lifted her to feel that her children were known by name and loved by God.
Another lady came to us and I had an image of her carefully drawing out threads around richly coloured fabrics. I asked her if she was interested in textiles and she told me that she enjoyed working with fabrics and she then drew out a piece of brightly coloured Liberty cloth that she carried with her which came from a fabric that belonged to her mother that she was intending to make into a pair of trousers. She told us that she was under a lot of emotional stress in her life relating to a close member of her family and I had a sense relating to the image I saw that by putting energy into her fabric design and making she would feel renewed and recharged because the needlecraft was a way in which she drew close to God. (I have also seen in my art classes that, where students in highly stressful situations focus in on their creative practice, they manage to rise up above their circumstances and achieve mental and emotional release.)
Another young lady came with a friend and I had an image of red water with shoals of fish swimming around. I asked her if she was interested in tropical fish. She said yes and explained the image herself by saying that the red represented the Red Sea because she was about to go on holiday to Egypt where she was going to go diving and see beautiful shoals of fish. She told me that the fish I had drawn looked just like the fish she saw when she was diving/snorkelling. I just had a sense with this that God wanted her to have a lovely relaxing holiday and was showing her that it was good for her to go and have a break and enjoy herself.
A gentleman came over to see us on the Sunday morning for whom I had been carrying an image for a week or so since our time in the Healing Rooms annual gathering at Halifax. It was an image of beautiful old intricately carved stained glass windows where liquid blue light was flooding down through the tracery from above. He told us that had had connections with old churches through his work (I think he had demolished a few?) but also in earlier life he told us that he had attended a church where the experience had left him emotionally wounded and he was still carrying this wound around with him. I felt strongly that God wanted to tell him through the image that it was good for him
to come back to church but that church wasn’t a building but a relationship with Jesus Christ and the body of Christ – ie. living stones of people with Christ as the cornerstone. I think that the tracery represented the concept of a church building and perhaps his preoccupation with church buildings, and the liquid blue light pouring through represented the living God showing that it is in our relationship with Him that He touches, washes and floods through our beings; our emotional association with a church building (or a memory of being in a particular church building) is of no lasting importance however beautiful it may be.
There were so many beautiful images that came to me over the weekend, each one so different and specific to the person in front of us. I felt so honoured and overjoyed to be a part of this weekend. I had received a prophecy from a Pastor in Cardiff a few months prior to this event which said that God would open doors for me in my art practice because I was serving Him through my art. So when Chris rang me and asked if I’d like to come to a prophetic art training session I was so thrilled and excited! I come into a prayer of agreement with the Pastor’s words that “This is just the beginning”.
