Creativity, being at the roots of all Life, can be described as the great art of living and whoever witnesses his or her own creative energy at play, witnesses the process of carrying the formless into form. This is magic and while magic is the privilege of the magician, it can be harvested by each and every one of us.
You can develop your magician talent and give your life an artistic twist by following these few basic steps. Abracadabra… here they are revealed, now, for you:
1). Give yourself permission to Dream
The seed of creativity grows from the dream that you held deep within. Your Soul, who is the nurturer of the creative process, requires visuals and emotional triggers to feed your physical experience with the power of actualization. Without a dream, felt strongly enough and vibrated greatly enough, inspiration cannot be pulled into one vortex and become physically real. Your dream is the gate to creativity. Be a dreamer. Your dream has power, more power than your mind knows now or will ever fathom.
2). Grant your inner-child moments of Power
The ultimate creative being within each and everyone is the child. The reason for that is that the child is, by nature, curious, daring, fearless and un-compromised. These are the assets of the pure creative being. Whoever has accessed to those gifts is empowered with a path to realize and actualize Life at will. Develop your sense of creativity by empowering your inner-child with the sense of fearlessness before Life and endless possibility before the unknown.
3). Open your heart and mind to Passion
The fuel to creativity is enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is, itself, nurtured by the extreme Love that exists in the heart. This passion fires up the truest sense of self and opens the mind to the flow of inspiration. Passion supports the highest vibration of the heart and provides Life with entry point to Inspiration and therefore creativity. Let your heart open to what gives it joy and Love and let your mind be flexible to what may make no sense but accelerate your heartbeat. There rest a sense of openness and a greater path to creative possibilities.
4). Claim your Artistry
Within each of us lies an artist, an artist whose only purpose is to grasp the flow and turn it into form. This is true for everyone and, unfortunately, this tends to not be real for too many. One of the reasons is the societal agreement about what an artist is. Art is Life and everything related to Life is Art. Therefore everyone given a blessing of Life is consequently given the blessing of artistry. When you claim your artistry as your most essential Truth, then you empower your talent with the uniqueness of who you are. This very claim becomes the anchor to inspiration and from it, creativity can blossom endlessly without limit.
5). Be receptive to Life
Life is a process made of two phases: one active and one receptive. While the active part is doing, the receptive part is listening, opening, accepting and silencing. Life speaks in words unknown to the mind and clear to the heart. When the noise of the mind vanishes, then the voice of the Soul comes out loud and provides tremendous guidance for the creative being within us to do. Give yourself moments and spaces of calmness and receptivity so that your being filter the inadequate and limiting side of life.
It can rejoice in the pure goodness of the endless vibration of possibilities. Creativity, like your breath, requires a time for doing and a time for being. Too many time, we do too much and we are not letting ourselves be enough. This unbalance creates a lack of space for inspiration to settle in and therefore for creativity to be born.
Creativity is who we are. When we let ourselves be true to our own nature, we essentially become close to Life and grow our ability to sense how to be and grow consciously, harmoniously and beautifully. Grow creative and you’ll grow essentially.
