Poetry is emotionally moving and engages your brain. Emotion on its own is mere sentimentality. Emotion in classical poetry blends the intellect with feeling. Benefits of poetry can be mood changing and lift depression, can improve your writing and thinking skills, and is good for the memory. Writing poetry puts you in touch with your own emotions. When you write poetry you are forced to think in creative and mind-bending ways. Reading poetry expands your linguistic capabilities and stretches your imagination. Reading poetry engages the heart. When you read a poem, you have to engage your feelings or you havent read the poem.

Word Search Affirmations
Word search is fun, mindless, and although is has been said they have little or no educational value, they take on a whole new meaning and produce significant benefits when affirmations are built into the word search. Affirmations are empowering; help you to shift your thoughts; manifest specific goals; keep things in perspective; help you to stay positive; keeps you focused; and are totally flexible and creative. Affirmations should be a never-ending life practice. Word search affirmations open you up to a new way of thinking in a creative and fun way.
The labyrinth is to be considered a spiritual practice and is often used as walking meditations, to search for meaning and guidance. As you enter the labyrinth, focus your thoughts on a question, challenge or concern. As you silently walk toward the centre, let go of all thoughts and worries so you can just be in the present. At the centre a prayer or meditation is done to let in Gods guidance, the divine into our lives. The walk out when you are ready is to let out, to take you back into your life, empowered by Spirit to transform your life and actions. The labyrinth can help in releasing grief, (“letting go”), help guide through troubled times, aid healing, aid in decision making, illuminate your purpose in life, and act as a tool of celebration and thanks.
