Recovering The SelfA Journal of Hope and Healing


The Power of Healing Words Explored by Jewel Kats

“I personally don’t struggle with writing. It’s my biggest release,” said Jewel Kats, award-winning author of children’s jewel Kats books in her recent interview with Carole Di Tosti on Blog Critics. As the author of empowering books for children, Kats makes an equally empowering statement about the art of writing.

As a writer, our words mean more to us than black ink on paper or screen that would sell. Writing, and creative writing particularly, has the power to boost our self-esteem on personal and social levels. We see ourselves more capable of self-expression and people come to realize our ability of getting our voice heard as the written word.

With Kats, writing gets a greater force toward uplifting spirits since she writes for children with special needs. With her widely acknowledged book Cinderella’s Magical Wheelchair, Kats shows by example the power of healing words. The story of a wheelchair-bound girl who doesn’t give up on her dreams makes it a special lesson not only for children but for anyone at all who has stepped back from accepting life’s challenges.

“I’m living proof that dreams do come true,” says Kats in her interview. Following her example, we can be sure that giving up on dreams is missing the entire point of life. By reaching out to others via our writing, we can cultivate the timeless gift of healing the soul, the inner, breathing self which so often gets suffocated for not getting enough healing words.

So next time, when you feel anywhere near saying bye to your dreams, just quickly log on and read about this inspirational writer’s uplifting words. If you are not transformed, it’s time to call 911!
