Let your creative self flow
May 08, 2018
To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
— Joseph Chilton Pearce
Creativity isn’t just something we do.
Being creative doesn’t mean just drawing pictures, writing books, or sculpting statues out of clay. There’s not a limited pot of creativity available only to the artists.
Creativity is a vital living force in the universe that is available to each of us, to assist us in living our lives. All we need to do to align ourselves with that force is let go of our fears.
Need a new idea on how to fix that room, that thesis, that relationship? Need an idea about how to fix your life? Let yourself be creative. Encourage your ideas to flow. Listen to your intuition, to your spirit.
Listen to that small idea you have, the one you have so much passion for. Let go of your rational thought process just for a moment. Let creativity help you live your life. Ask the Creator to help.
God, show me how creative I am and can be. Give me the courage to be willing to make mistakes as I create my path with heart.
