The Key to Feeling Energized and Fully Alive
When was the last time you engaged your creative side? No pressure, no judgment, just a space and time to explore and get lost in the experience of creating something?
Maybe you garden or cook? Maybe draw or sing? Write or journal?
Have you done so recently? Or has it been too long?
Creativity is a fundamental expression of the human being. An expression of the authentic self engaging in the world. One that can only be unique to you.
Creativity is essential to our health and well being. As long we are creating, we keep growing, developing and evolving, as individuals and as a community.
If we cease to create, then our life energy decreases. Decay and deterioration enter in. Our state of health declines.
Creativity is like a refreshing breath of life for us, helping us to thrive. It feeds us, making us feel invigorated, energized and alive.
When you enter into a space of creativity and play, a vibrant flow of energy flows through your whole body. You can feel that you’re a part of something greater.
Fueled with this breath of inspiration from within, you, the artist, may begin to paint or to sing a song. You may move in dance, write words or use other materials to express what is bubbling up inside of you.
You feel the call from within, and you know it’s time to dive in and play.
What wants to express itself through you? What wants to come to life from your activity?
As you play creatively, you lose track of what’s outside in the world – the news, daily tasks, worries, and fears. Your thoughts of that part of the world dissolve, releasing any stress you were feeling.
This vibrant creative force infuses your whole being. You feel fully alive. And joyfully engaged.
Your creative process may be smooth and flow easily at times. It may be bumpy and chaotic at other times. You get to move through it in a way that speaks to you. It’s not time for judgment.
This is the time for presence in the moment. Surrendering to the process and that which moves you from within.
Such creativity, when focusing on the process and not product, can help us to access a meditative state, tapping into a deeper part of ourselves.
Here we can enter a feeling of flow and freedom, a space for self discovery and expression. An opportunity for healing.
Human beings are naturally creative. It’s part of our nature.
And being creative brings us back to this state – our true nature.
Our true nature that brings us to a place of balance and a place of health.
Through our creativity, we can engage our own gifts while we imagine and create new ideas and new solutions that are needed within our communities, becoming a powerful healing force in the world.
“Everybody has a creative potential and from the moment you can express this creative potential, you can start changing the world.” -Paulo Coelho
Don’t think you are creative?
Guess what? I welcome you to join my upcoming Master Your Creativity online course and you’ll discover you are, even if right now you don’t think so!
In the course, you’ll have a chance to:
- Explore creativity at your own pace in an inspirational and supportive environment
- Become aware of the dreams you’d still like to manifest in your life and find the confidence and excitement to take the next steps to realize them
Listen to what others who have taken this course with me are saying…
“The idea of taking a creativity course for someone who did not consider herself creative was a bit daunting. Just the thought of it was challenging for me…I have to say there was a bit of fear involved too, fear that everyone in the class will now know that I am not an artist…but, I realized through the course that I am an artist. I am creative… I am much more confident having taken this course …There is no more fear involved, just pure excitement.”
Don’t miss out! I want to encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity now. Join my online course Master Your Creativity that starts this fall. You’ll get a chance to be creative and just PLAY in a supportive community of spiritual creatives led by me, Jeannine Goode-Allen of Dr. of the Soul, and inspired by the incredible wisdom of St. Hildegard of Bingen.
