Sul - my healing doll

Here is Sul, my healing doll from a class I took on my BAD yahoo group. She was a joy to work on for sure and I can't tell you how much I learned from her. You can read below in my blog most of why I made her and why.

But just to review a little, the sword charm is the knife that went thru my liver and caused me all this medical grief for almost a year now. Colors of reds in Sul for the courage to go on, the pastel colors meaning calm and to try and keep calm thru all this recovery, lots of greens for my new life and try and achieve harmony and balance in it, the frog for my transition back into real life and out of being sick, the garden theme and the earth on the bottom of her and roots for me to be nurtured, rocks leaves and the writing of her name on the doll for healing.

And a very special thank you again to our wonderful teacher Kristen Evans, a very very knowledgeable teacher to say the least, she truly has refreshed my outlook on life now. I want to continue in this avenue of symbolic teachings so to speak and work out more of ME thru my rock. I think that would be a great way to continue on with this journey. And the best part of all this, it was so FUNNNNNNNNN! Thank you, thank you Kristen again.

And I thought of something that my Dad told me years and years ago, "NEVER, NEVER STOP LEARNING DIAN, ALWAYS TAKE CLASSES ON SOMETHING, ANYTHING, YOU WON'T BE SORRY" Boy, those words sure ring true for me today!
