Your creative gifts are a doorway into wellbeing and the fulfillment of your life path. They will lift you out of negativity and up into a flow of giving, joy and the conscious experience of your spiritual essence.
Following where your creativity leads you will take you to the next step in your spiritual workshop. The spirit of the creativity itself will also support you in embracing your life lessons with an open heart.
To experience your connection with your Creator directly, you only need to witness what happens when you open to the creative gifts that course through your being and let them have their way with you.
Our common ground and connection with our Source is even more apparent when we focus on something we love. Our creative gifts then open in direct proportion to how much we surrender to them.
If you love to cook, you can feel energy moving through you, enlivening you as you orchestrate a delicious meal for loved ones. Then all who partake of the meal receive the joy that flowed through you as you let your creative gifts express themselves.
If dancing is one of your creative gifts, you can feel yourself in the heart of vitality and joy as your body flows with the creative currents.
All who watch you or dance with you can also feel your creative, expansive energy and are touched in some way.
Likewise, if painting is your passion, you can feel universes opening up inside of you as your inner vision flows onto the canvas. Then those who witness your painting will be affected by the essence of your vision and your creativity.
Creativity goes full circle. As you share your inspired actions or manifestations with others, it touches into the creativity inside them and activates it, whether they are conscious of it or not.
Your creative gifts will serve as tools for your growth experiences. As you follow your Emotional Feedback System and do what you love to do, you live from your heart.
Living from your heart and following what fills you with positive feelings will automatically draw to yourself the life lessons that you specifically came here to learn.
As you walk your path with your creative gifts leading the way, your inner guidance opens up.
I’ve found that if I’m inspired to do something like writing an article, sometimes at the outset I have only a vague idea of what I’m going to say. Then, when I open to the first inspiration and just start writing that down, another inspiration comes, then another.
I just stay with each step as it comes and follow the ideas that light me up. Spirit says “Try this!” and then “Now try this!” Each time I follow that spark, even more ideas open up.
These creative sparks are like golden bread crumbs that can bring you deeper into spiritual and practical understanding when you follow them.
We all have creative inspiration. If you don’t think you do, just think of some activity that brings you joy when you think of doing it. Continue thinking about it and I guarantee you that a creative idea will come to you.
Follow that inspiration and simply do what it guides you to do. Then, since you’ve opened up the channel of your creative gifts, another inspiration will come in. Do that one too, then just keep on going!
I know you’ll be happy with where it takes you. :-)
One of the fastest ways to turn your life around if you’re in a “down” place is to tap into your creative gifts. That will quickly get your juices flowing again and open up the channel of wellbeing within you.
For me, one of the best therapies in the world is to just put everything aside and dance. As I let go and let the music and my body’s natural inclinations move me, a new aliveness emerges from within, takes over and flows out. It’s exhilarating!
The upliftment of creativity can be felt even while doing simple things like arranging the towels in your bathroom, moving your plants to better locations, or even setting up your desk so that it suits you better. All of these activities engage your right brain and open up the flow of your creative gifts – your aliveness – within you.
To bring creativity more into your conscious awareness, try a simple creative act and notice the positive difference in how you feel when you access your creativity in even the slightest way.
I encourage you to take frequent creativity breaks during the day. If you’ve been working at the computer for awhile and feel your energy waning, take five minutes to get up, hum a song, stretch and dance, draw a picture, or whatever activity seems fun at the time.
You will find yourself significantly recharged when you sit back down at the computer.
Then, as many times a week as you can, give your creative gifts a more extended time of expression, whether it’s painting, dancing, singing, designing, writing – whatever excites and enlivens you.
Do it for a few hours at a time, as often as you can. If you make this a priority in your life, your wellbeing and positive outlook will increase significantly.
The energy that takes over when you open to your creative gifts is Spirit, Source, Core Essence, whatever you wish to call it. It is the essence of who you are.
It is the river that will take you in the direction your heart most wants to go, and past anything that has ever caused you suffering. It gets you in touch with the Life Force from within.
All we have to do is put our boat in the river of wellbeing, and let the river take us.
How do you do that? By turning your thoughts away from a negative focus and toward a positive one. And how do you do THAT? By deliberately reaching for a thought that evokes a positive feeling of openness, light and love in every situation that you can remember to do this in.
Because you are a creator, you are constantly creating, whether consciously or unconsciously, and whether you are manifesting positive or negative creations. You create with your attention, thoughts and feelings.
As a thought arises, it is the beginning seed of a creation. The thoughts that you habitually think create the feelings you habitually feel. These create manifestations of more of the same energy (feelings) you habitually emit.
Therefore, by The Law Of Attraction you create the substance and quality of your life, for better or worse.
Because we have the buffer of time on this plane, sometimes there is a time lapse between when you first begin turning your attention toward a solution or a positive manifestation, and when it actually comes into your physical experience.
Don’t let this time lapse make you talk yourself into believing nothing is happening. Believe me, it is!
Everything that happens on this plane is really about vibration and energy. Turning your attention back toward the negative direction will only create negative energy within you and consequently slow down or sabotage the manifestation of your positive creations.
In order to make the best use of your creative gifts I recommend getting really clear on what you want in your life and then point your boat in that direction.
That is YOUR “downstream.” Keeping your attention there will evoke positive feelings and thoughts and will keep you in alignment with your heart’s path.
As you follow your life’s path obstacles are bound to come up. For creative problem solving, keep switching your attention back to your “downstream” place of your dream fulfilled, the place that brings you the most joy when you think of it.
Just keep asking yourself “What DO I want in this situation?” rather than mentally churning about the stuff you don’t want.
By focusing on what you DO want, you free up your inner space and open yourself to your inner guidance. Consequently, you’ve removed yourself from the “box” of the problem and opened up your access to the solutions with your creative gifts. Solutions will come by themselves without you mentally thrashing over them.
As I mentioned before, it is the arising of a desire to improve our circumstances that actually summons more wellbeing energy through us.
This is true of every living being. Living on this plane of existence, desire is an integral part of our evolutionary process, both spiritually as well as physically.
When I first became aware that desire is a GOOD thing because it summons more life energy, creative gifts, joy and wellbeing through me, it caused me to look back and question the old spiritual programming I had acquired that said “desire is the root of all evil.” We’ve all heard those ominous words before, right?
With the old spiritual programming about desire being “bad,” whenever I’d feel the natural surge of desire for something like a fulfilling career or a true, loving relationship, I had to tell myself, “Gee, I’m not supposed to want anything.”
Then eventually I noticed that self-constricting thought produced, well, self-constriction. Along with that were feelings of fear, guilt, shame and resentment. So, how can that be a good thing?
I’ve found this to be a much better compass to navigate by than mental rules that you have to carry around and remember, especially when they are someone else’s rules.
There is nothing like your own in-the-moment, direct experience and paying attention to what your own Spirit / Heart guidance is telling you. I recommend that as the place to make decisions from.
Do you feel negative, contracted, and resistant? Then the choice that evoked those feelings is not a good one for you. Or do you feel open, excited, optimistic, and loving? Then that option is a great choice for you and it will draw out even more of your creative gifts.
I encourage you to look within yourself and find what is true for YOU on this and all subjects. Don’t take my word or anyone else’s for YOUR truth. Check it out for yourself. Listen to your Heart and see which ideas and concepts resonate with love and light within you, and which ones cause contraction and negativity.
Have you ever felt stuck trying to solve a problem, put it aside and did something completely different like played with your kids, then felt a flash of energy and inspiration and the solution just popped into your head?
Isn’t that exciting? That flash is your own life energy itself! It is the juice of creativity, the expression of your creative gifts.
We can get so caught up in a problem, trying to figure it out mentally, that we perpetuate the problem by putting so much attention on it.
Because we manifest what we keep our attention and feelings on, we just recreate the problem over and over again and we end up spinning our wheels.
But if we can put it aside and step outside of the mind for awhile, we are able to transcend the problem. We move outside the “box” of the problem, which is the only place the solution can exist. Then we are able to hear the solution Spirit has been trying to tell us all along.
This “thinking outside the box” is true creative thinking or creativity innovation. Actually it isn’t even “thinking” in the traditional way. It is more like surrendering, which opens up access to your right brain creativity and your inner guidance.
Then the inspiration from there stimulates the left brain which comes up with a logical, linear solution outside the box of the problem.
I once saw a fascinating PBS show on brain plasticity. Research revealed that whenever we engage in mental or physical activity that challenges us just enough to push us past our comfort zone but not enough to throw us into stress overload, the brain actually creates more neurons!
Neurons, according to Wikipedia, are ”electrically excitable cells in the nervous system that process and transmit information. Neurons are the core components of the brain, and spinal cord in vertebrates and ventral nerve cord in invertebrates, and peripheral nerves.”
In other words:
So what do you love to do? What’s fun? What evokes joy and excitement and makes you oblivious to time while you’re doing it?
If you already had more money than you could possibly spend in your entire lifetime, how would you spend your time?
This is where your creativity is the most accessible to you. Doing those activities and giving free rein to your creative gifts will keep you on your heart path and in the river of wellbeing.
It will keep your juices flowing, your outlook optimistic, your mind and body stimulated and alert, and … you’ll have a LOT of fun!
It just takes a few seconds. :-)
Thank you! Love and blessings of light, joy, love and healing to you my friend...
