July personal musings

July personal musings

I know I disappeared in the last few months and only popped in to let you know about classes or training, but I missed talking and sharing what’s in my heart.

So I decided to try a new practice-Personal newsletter that you will get only once a month and will be like a personal blog.  

I hope you will enjoy it!!


A memory that makes me feel good


I remember a situation when I took a vacation at home because I had to stay with my daughter when everyone flew abroad, there were two things I did in the creative space that really pleased and filled me.

I made collage stasches, in the background, I put music that I love, I cut out images from old books and created boxes of collages.

A box of people, a box of animals, a box of nature, can you Imagine how cool it was?

There was also a box of places and a box of texts.

 I arranged tons of materials I have by categories. Then when I wanted to create everything was laid out in front of me.

Another thing that happened on that home vacation was that I studied ink-making techniques from all kinds of ingredients.

I really researched it thoroughly. I opened a gaming lab. I took apart markers and allowed myself to go deeper and have fun without a specific purpose.

The feeling I felt was one of wonderful freedom, I just enjoyed creating just for myself, without an explicit purpose, just being with myself for a moment, with the colors and without wanting to create something that can be shown on Facebook.

Tomorrow I’m flying to Canada and the United States for a whole month, to visit family, spend some time with my husband and also create a diary. I intend to share a lot about my trip, and give recommendations about stores and materials, in the meantime, it took me a long time to pack my art supplies and then I remembered that last year I created a fun Video about my art supplies.

Something I didn’t tell you about my second book


Publishing this book was a difficult inner journey for me.

The first book was successful; I received strong responses and compliments. There was no book about the visual Journal in Israel, and even abroad, it was considered a very innovative and special book. 

But compared to the first book, which was very accessible and simple, the second book is really about healing, it brings up my idea – how you can heal by working with color. It is not as readable and simple as the first book; it is more profound and touches even painful places. 

When I created it, I felt that even though it was not an easy book for me to write, it was very important that I write it and not give up on myself. The writing process was constantly accompanied by this voice that feared that it would not be understood.

And I know that voice inside me; it’s a voice that fears that if I don’t present everything in a very simple way, then people won’t understand. This is a voice from my childhood that felt misunderstood a lot.

On the other hand, I know that healing takes time; it’s a long process to devote yourself to. This book is a profound process in which I can meet with more painful places and make an understanding of my life, who am I? What do I need to be happy?

Even in the branding process I did for the book, Benny Garmi insisted with me that it belongs to the category of art therapy, and it was hard for me to agree to it at first. But eventually, I gave in and agreed to let go of control.

It was important for me to share with you how much the process of creating a book is an emotional journey that continues even after the book is released to the world.

 I hope you enjoyed this newsletter/blog

I enjoyed sharing it with you!

See you next month!

Color Archetypes is finally released!!

Color Archetypes is finally released!!

It’s Finally here!


I’m over the moon that after two intense years of creating, the “Color Archetype” book is finally on Amazon!!

The “birth” of my new book


Exactly four years ago, my first book “Layers of Meaning” came out!

The book was a great success both in Israel and abroad… and brought to many women the magic of the seven elements of the visual journal.

The elements are: intention, ,magical coincidence, background, image, color, text and line. Over the past years I realized how deep the elements are and how much they influence our lives. Out of the seven elements it turned out that color, image and text are the three elements that really allow the magic to happen.

Following the investigation and the prolonged work in the my journal, the annual course was born – the Color Archetypes, which led an in-depth process of working on colors, archetypes and intuitive writing.

Over 200 women have participated in the Color Archetypes course in recent years and allowed a new method to be born.

Thanks to these special women and thanks to the power of the archetypal work in color combination – my second book was born – Color Archetypes

The book was published this week on Amazon and is waiting to reach everyone who loves color and wants to explore the archetypes that accompany our lives through colors.

But above all, the real quality of the book lies in the works of art you can see in it – created by Rakfat Hadar and her students and the inspiration to start your own art based on the processes that are suggested on the book.

These works of art enable frequencies of healing and inner connection to a deep creation.

This is a spectacular art book that combines inspiration for nine development and creation lessons using the “SoulPages” method while focusing on the journey we went through during our childhood and the archetypes that influence our lives.



Why do you absolutely need this book? 


Discover the healing properties of your inner color wheel.

The act of making art is a therapeutic process that can help you communicate and visualize your own unique path towards happiness. However, just as there are many roads to the same destination, no one can tell you what your roadmap to happiness looks like. You have to paint it first.

A companion to Rakefet Hadar’s Layers of Meaning method, Color Archetypes is a one-of-a-kind art therapy guide and workbook for both patients and therapists. Using its fresh and colorful prompts, you too can create your own visual “roadmap” at any given moment while understanding the emotions associated with different colors.


In this book, you will find:

  • Exercises in transformation and healing – and how to use self-expression as a driving force for change.
  • An in-depth look into the world of color archetypes – explanations and lessons on harnessing the healing powers of colors while working on your own visual journal.
  • The ability to understand and control your emotions – use colors as a medium to communicate and unravel your thoughts and desires.
  • A great way to handle anxiety, stress, self-esteem issues, trauma, and self-doubt.
Enter the illustrious world of color archetypes and paint your way to a better, happier, and more fulfilling life.

Discovering the Transformative Benefits of the SoulPages Method

Discovering the Transformative Benefits of the SoulPages Method

In a fast-paced and often chaotic world, finding moments of self-reflection, self-expression, and inner calm becomes essential for our overall well-being. The SoulPages method offers a creative and introspective approach to personal growth and understanding. Combining writing and art, this unique technique empowers individuals to delve into the depths of their souls, fostering self-discovery, healing, and connection. In this article, we will explore the numerous benefits of the SoulPages method and how it can positively impact our lives.

  1. Self-Expression and Emotional Release: The SoulPages method provides a safe and expressive space for individuals to give voice to their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. By combining words, images, symbols, and colors, individuals can communicate and process their innermost feelings in a holistic manner. This creative expression serves as a powerful tool for emotional release, allowing individuals to gain clarity, insight, and a sense of relief.
  2. Self-Reflection and Insight: Engaging in the SoulPages method invites individuals to dive deeper into their own thoughts, beliefs, and values. Through introspective writing and art, individuals can explore their inner landscape, gaining a better understanding of themselves, their desires, and their aspirations. This process of self-reflection promotes personal growth, self-acceptance, and self-awareness, leading to increased confidence and resilience.
  3. Stress Reduction and Mindfulness: The act of creating SoulPages can be a meditative and mindful experience. As individuals engage in the method, they become fully present in the moment, focusing their attention on the art-making process. This immersion in creativity and self-expression serves as a powerful stress-relief technique, allowing individuals to detach from daily worries and concerns, and promoting a sense of calm and tranquility.
  4. Healing and Emotional Well-being: The SoulPages method can serve as a catalyst for healing and emotional well-being. By exploring and expressing their emotions through art and writing, individuals can acknowledge and process unresolved traumas, grief, or difficult life experiences. This cathartic process enables healing and promotes emotional resilience, paving the way for personal growth and a sense of wholeness.
  5. Cultivating Compassion and Empathy: The SoulPages method encourages individuals to explore themes of compassion and empathy, both towards oneself and others. Through the creative process, individuals can tap into their empathetic nature, gaining a deeper understanding of the human experience. By expressing compassion and empathy in their art and writing, individuals develop a greater capacity for kindness, understanding, and connection with others.
  6. Personal Transformation and Empowerment: Engaging in the SoulPages method can be a transformative journey of self-discovery and personal empowerment. By embracing their creativity and inner voice, individuals gain a greater sense of agency over their lives. This method provides a platform for personal growth, empowering individuals to step into their authentic selves, make positive changes, and live more fulfilling lives.

Conclusion: The SoulPages method offers a powerful and transformative approach to self-expression, self-reflection, and personal growth. By integrating writing and art, individuals can embark on a journey of exploration and self-discovery, leading to enhanced emotional well-being, healing, and empowerment. Whether used as a therapeutic tool or a means of creative self-expression, the SoulPages method opens doors to new insights, connection, and personal transformation. Embrace the power of the SoulPages method and unlock the hidden depths of your soul.
