6 of 9 | "I Am Creativity"
"the ability to produce or use imagination and original ideas; the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships; Latin (creo) to make something; Sanskrit (pratibha) genius"
"I Am Creativity Expressed through the Individual, Unique Contribution of Many to the Whole."
I remember watching Willie Wonka and The Chocolate Factory when I was a young child and being utterly amazed at how imagination can be visually expressed! It felt like a whole new world of color, play, and magic was available to those with the golden ticket.
Growing up my favorite books were the ones about fairies, elves, goblins, gnomes, animals that spoke, witches. As a teenager, I transitioned to romance novels, time travel. As a mother, we read Harry Potter, Magic Tree House.
Now as an adult, my favorite book, hands-down, is The Gene Keys. In it, Richard Rudd uses the word "contemplation" and I believe imagination flows from contemplation.
When we allow space to explore "what is" - the patterns, relationships, roles we play, habits we have formed - there is the potential to break through that conditioning and allow a new spark of an idea to form.
When we follow that spark and contemplate the potential, imagination brings something new into form.
There is no way to force imagination.
It is simply energy transmuting from something old, known, familiar... into something completely new and different!
I have found that I can create environments, processes that support my imagination.
Meditation is one.
Scribing, for me, is another. Each of these posts come from me sitting quietly, listening, trusting the flow of energy through my awareness, guiding the words that I speak out loud into the phone that records for me to transcribe when I am complete.
Music, nature, sunshine. Laughter. Plant medicine. Dance. A good night's sleep.
We have so many resource at our fingertips that support creativity.
Often it is doubt that stops the flow. Not trusting the ways that energy wants to express uniquely through us as individuals.
So it is a Journey.
The more we trust, the more begin to express. The more we express, the more pleasurable the journey becomes, the more we trust. And so on!
If we are stuck, how do we begin?
Think back to when you were a child. How did you like to create? Was it with your hands? Your voice? Your body?
Did you prefer playing inside or outside? By yourself or with friends?
Tap back into what it felt like to get lost in creating as a child. Bring those activities back into your reality.
Don't judge what those first creations look like. Just allow the energy to flow. It gets easier! More enjoyable, more satisfying.
