Open the Door to the Longing of Your Soul

Do you have a creative mind?

Do you just feel better when you’re exploring and engaging in something creative? It seems to boost your mood and support your mental health.

Think back to the last time you were doing something creative. Maybe it was drawing or painting. Or singing or dancing. Maybe writing, gardening or something else.

Tap into how it made you feel. Did you feel invigorated and alive?

Maybe you remember a vibrant flow of energy that flowed through your body. You were fueled with a breath of inspiration allowing yourself to express what was bubbling up inside. You probably lost track of what was happening in the world outside. You felt stress melt away. You felt alive and joyfully engaged. This vibrant creative force seemed to infuse your whole being.

Your creative process might’ve flowed smoothly, or it might’ve been bumpy and chaotic at times. There was no need to judge but you simply surrendered to what was moving within you.

When was the last time you were creative in this way? Too long ago?

Does your soul long to be creative but you just don’t respond to it that often?

Maybe you tell yourself that you don’t have time or you’re just not that skilled. Or maybe you think you shouldn’t be wasting your time and should be doing something more productive.

We’re naturally creative as human beings. And we’re meant to respond to our longing to be creative in the world. Through our creativity, we can heal, grow and make a difference in the world.

 

 

Are you ready? Ready to be open and interested in the longings in your soul?

Ready to summon your courage to open that door and invite that longing to come out and play?

I encourage you to start today. In whatever way makes sense for you. Take the first steps to create what you long to create, to bring it into the world.

No need to worry about whether the result of your creativity is going to be magnificent or even original. Whether it impacts others or changes the world.

Just get started. And by opening the door to your creative longing, you’ll begin to experience more happiness, more joy in your life.
