Louise OliverLouise Oliver  I am an artist, writer and holistic therapist.  Sapphire Light is my project, exploring art, energy alignment, meditation and healing.

I trained in metaphysics with Rainbow Light Trust from its inception in 2002 and with The Academy of Spiritual Sciences.  Meditation is a major focus and I manage the global peace meditation Ribbons of Light.

My Story

In 1975, I graduated in Fine Art and soon joined with a group of artists, writers and musicians to form a theatre company called IOU.  We devised all of our own original work and for many years I was busy touring throughout Britain and Europe on an intensive schedule.  I was involved as a performer, visual artist, writer, deviser and maker of props, sets and costumes.  The company worked indoors and out, often transforming unusual sites and buildings into striking performance venues.

It was hugely creative, exhilarating and demanding.  I fell in love with theatre as a place where different art forms – such as dance, sculpture, music, poetry, painting and film – could all come together and interact.  By the turn of the century, however, I had been overworking and living on adrenaline for a long time and it took its toll on my health.

I first came to the work of Rainbow Light Trust in 2001, during a traumatic time in my life.  I was feeling distraught and looking for help for my eldest son, who had developed a serious mental health condition. I saw a poster for a weekly meditation and began attending regularly.  It was a lifesaver for me.  The method being taught was simple and involved breathing through the subtle colours of the energy field.  The process was then completed with the Emerald Alignment.  The practice of Meditation and energy alignment came to be placed at the heart of my life and work.  I went on to lead  meditation groups and later to manage Ribbons of Light, a global meditation for peace with a weekly focus.

I booked in for therapies and classes, attending the STEPS teachings, as well as workshops and seminars held by Carol Lamb. I began training in metaphysics and holistic therapies with The Academy of Spiritual Sciences, gaining some of the understanding I needed to begin to heal and to change my life.  I recognised that we are all souls undertaking our own journeys and each with personal responsibility for our choices and our growth.  It was while I was training as a Soul Recall Therapist that I was prompted to return to my first love of painting and started my project Sapphire Light.

In recent years, I’ve been through some very challenging times and have faced serious health problems myself and also within the family.  In 2013, I had a major operation to remove a massive tumour.  My recovery was greatly assisted by The Living Memory Research Trust.  Throughout this period of life-threatening illness and recovery, I was grateful to have the support of the Emerald Alignment.  I have experienced first hand how this method can help us physically, emotionally and mentally, as well as connecting us to our higher awareness. In the years that followed, my experience of the Emerald Alignment process deepened.  I’ve found it to be a key element in releasing blocks and restoring balance through intuitive connection and creative flow.  In recovering from surgery, I began to make paintings, drawings, collages, objects and assemblages.  I’ve always been drawn to explore ways of combining words and imagery and I found that all of this worked its magic to help me release deep-seated memories, emotional blocks and mental patterns.

I’ve written about this in Art and Alignment.  The manual contains details of how creative practice has assisted my own and others’ healing process.  Often we don’t realise the distance we’ve travelled until we look round and get a glimpse of how far we’ve come.  In the midst of intense pain and trauma, through the work of Carol Lamb and Rainbow Light Trust, I found my spiritual path and embarked on integrating my work as an artist and therapist.  We can find our way to the light even in the darkest of times but we do need help.  It is vital to learn how to exercise our abilities in a way that is good for growth, individually and collectively.  I know from experience that there are practices available to make a whole world of difference!

The manual Art and Alignment looks at the importance of strengthening our connection to higher awareness and engaging with creativity and imagination.  It explores personal healing journeys through art and creativity.

My own stories are told in ‘A Healing Journey’, including ‘Mapping Soul Memories’, ‘The Object In Hand’ and ‘Restoring the Flow‘.  There are also accounts from two friends of Rainbow Light Trust ~ Nancy Wait in ‘The Painted Path’ and Betty Warters in  ‘It’s Never Too Late!’

 ‘Choosing to Live’  A radio interview, covering topics of childhood perceptions, past life memory and art as the healer.
