N ow its time for Paintings That Heal™
by Brent Atwater
Medical Intuitive, Healer, Artist and Author
As a professional artist for over 20 years, I licensed
artwork to the leading manufacturers: Neiman Marcus, JC
Penney's, Orvis, and all the golf designs and wallpaper
borders you can imagine. Bet you've seen my magnolias. The
more successful the designs became the less I wanted to
design those collections. I was tired! I wanted to paint
from my heart.
1997, my best friend of 6 years who was also my fiance was
killed before we were married. My creativity ceased! His
death activated all of my "remembering" and awakened
the other "gifts" that I had contracted to use
in this incarnation. Since then I have worked as an international
and documented Medical Intuitive and Healer. The only time
I painted was to help my soul get thru times of endless
In the 8th year following his death, something inside of
me was stirring. It was time to paint again. However, I
could never go back to the controlled collections and designs.
As the Universe would have it, I had lunch with a friend
who needed a cover for the University of North Carolina's
Center for Functional GI & Motility Disorder's annual
The commission was to create a painting representing Irritable
Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Now let me tell you, this was NOT
my idea of a Painting! However, the idea was SO far fetched,
(to paint a disorder or disease), that I thought, oh, why
not!? It was NOTHING I had ever created before!
How to approach this???????? I decided to pretend the canvas
was "the Person". So I said my prayer as I always
do before a session, and then started to work. As a medical
intuitive I determined what that disease looked like and
once I started painting, the exact colors and patterns were
given to me.......Hmm ,interesting I thought. I painted
until I was told by my guidance to stop.
In the following days as the Painting sat drying for its
presentation, my guidance said "you're not finished".
Startled, I ask, what's left to do? My guidance quickly
replied, "paint the Healing Energies to heal the disorder"...
and where am I to do this... "over the first layer"
my guides stated...so I figured why not! I'll give it a
that month a friend who is a doctor suggested that we test
the IBS Painting to see if it radiated scientifically measurable
energy. I said why not? Being a pioneer in having the Healing
Energies and Healing benefits of my Paintings scientifically
and alternatively documented was really a leap of faith
and trust in the Universe.
In our initial double blind studies using traditional scientific
Biofeedback we documented that in as little time as 5 seconds
of exposure to a Painting's Healing Energies, positive changes
occur in the viewer's physical energy fields. Then we tested
over 100 more people before and after their exposure to
the Paintings with 2 more systems:
1. State of the art Gas Discharge Visualization Cameras,
used by major medical research centers. The GDV Camera utilizes
state-of-the-art optical technology to photograph an individual's
energy fields through image sensors that read energy levels
from an individual's fingertips.
2.HeartMath system (used by many Fortune 500 companies and
by various departments of the federal government), is an
interactive computer-based heart rate variability monitor
and real-time pulse wave recording that gives a scientific
measure of your physiological readings.
These scientific and alternative technologies recorded
that positive changes occur in a viewer’s heart waves
(HRV), respiration rates, body temperature and brain waves
(EEG) and other vital signs. Changes also occur in their
subtle energy fields. We also collected video testimonials
to accompany the documentation. So these Paintings That
Heal™, Literally Heal! Isn't the Universe awesome!
You're invited to see examples of selected before and after
viewer printouts at www.PaintingsthatHeal.com under testimonials.
We also discovered that not only were they a healing tool,
but the Paintings could also be used as a diagnostic tool.
Findings continue to confirm that people respond to a specific
Painting which represents a disorder or issue that was either
in their past, or is presently or potentially in their physical
body or energy field or in the energy filed of someone very
close to them. Some people with multiple diseases or disorders
are affected by several of the Paintings.
We invite you to go
to our website and see which ones resonate with you.
do these work? Each light ray consists of colors that have
different wavelengths and vibrational frequencies that affect
your mind, cells, and body chemicals differently. By receiving
color, texture and image information through our eyes, their
frequencies communicate to our brain to direct the various
bodily functions to respond accordingly.
Not only are you what you think, your visual input matters
too! Color, texture and pattern energies and vibrational
input are constantly working on your cellular and subtle
energy bodies at an unconscious level.
The principle of dress for success, painting your environment
(home and workplace) and decorating an environment to promote
well being, all lend credibility to the fact that subliminal
visual input effects and affects all of your health systems.
Then add channeled and directed essential Healing Energies
into each canvas that I use to facilitate healing in my
clients, and you get a Painting that Heals™. The combination
of essential Healing Energies, mixed with the vibrational
frequencies of the artwork, all activate physical healing
responses in the viewer's body.
What are the benefits of Paintings That Heal™? While
some of the Paintings are beautiful, others are not. They
all are a Healing Energies "generator" addressing
specific needs, and are physically non invasive. They assist
and amplify other healing treatments, procedures and prescriptions,
and they facilitate ongoing and continuous positive energies
and Healing benefits in the environment. These are particularly
supportive for children, the elderly, and those in critical,
chronic, degenerative, or delicate health situations. To
maximize the healing assets of a studio Painting or one
that is created just for your needs, it should be placed
in a location where you will receive optimum ongoing exposure
to the Healing Energies on a daily basis. Once the Painting's
energies become part of an environment, an individual continually
benefits from it energetically by means of harmonic resonance.
A person's own energy field will regulate the appropriate
amounts of energy that they receive on an ongoing basis.
You can not be overexposed.
What can individual expect when they are exposed to a Painting?
At present, there are no specific guarantees regarding a
fixed timeframe, and specific healing properties of Paintings
That Heal™. Research results vary with individual
situations. We are able to document definite positive changes
in an individual's bio energetic fields, and in their symptoms.
With those given results, we hope, to generate more interest
in expanding our long term research program for Paintings
Are Paintings That Heal™ the same as art therapy?
No, just being in the presence of the combination of energies
in a Painting is what actually alters and heals the viewer's
physical and energetic body. In contrast, the healing response
in art therapy is generated by the patient making a piece
of artwork. Art therapy work is not infused with channeled
does the future hold for these Paintings? We believe that
Paintings That Heal™ will have multiple applications,
from therapeutic uses such as screen savers (a client on
meds for anxiety attacks, used his Painting as his computer's
screen saver, and was able to reduce and later remove his
meds) to medical and healthcare healing decor and public
We envision "get well" cards that actually create
health! Imagine prints and posters in nursing homes that
create a positive atmosphere, or artwork that soothes in
hotels, and waiting rooms, or a deck of cards that facilitates
a healthier physical body for the user. The Paintings' uses
are almost endless. Wherever there is artwork or a design,
or a surface to be painted, the potential for healing is
In 1987 I created the Just Plain Love™ Charitable
Trust to benefit children and other worthwhile causes, as
my way of parenting, giving back, and running "carpool"
since I was unable to have children. I am in the process
of publishing Just Plain Love™ Children's Healing
Books ( http://www.brentatwater.com) that contain illustrations
infused with the same Healing Energies that are in the Paintings.
These children's healing books are my contribution to parenting
during sensitive times dealing with delicate life issues.
We still continue to test and gather research about the
Healing Energies in the Paintings and children's books.
Amazingly, over a year later, the Irritable Bowel Painting
still retains the same powerful Healing Energies, and continues
to be a source of healing on a deep cellular memory level
for those battling this disorder..... "I want my art
to DO good, as well as BE good!!!" So when I ask my
guides, how do I use my gifts to serve in the future, They
say, "combine all your gifts into your art and writings
...... it's time for Paintings That Heal™"
