Today I had an epiphany of sorts.
When I first heard the phrase “Create space for creativity”, I automatically thought it referred to a physical space. A beautifully decorated haven where one could sit, listen to music and write, draw, paint, knit, sew etc.
Listening to Deepak Chopra (Find Your Creativity) and Roger Gabriel( Saturday Creativity), two of my favourite teachers on the Chopra Meditation and Well Being App, my lifeline these past few years, gave me insight. To create space for creativity, is to make room in ones life to connect with the inner self, shedding light on our innate ability to transform problems/challenges we are facing into an opportunity for personal growth.
“Consciousness is a field of infinite possibilities which each person can access. When you bring hidden potential to life, you are being creative. Creativity is not the possession of only artists and writers. The highest use of creativity, is a creative life which brings freshness and renewal every day. By accessing your creativity, you can always find a way to get unstuck …..the incursion of a virus or unhealthy food in the diet…You are designed to be creative …free choice to respond to any moment of life exactly as you want to ….stuckness keeps us from accessing our creative potential within”. Deepak Chopra
To begin a more creative way of life, Deepak raised a few key points. The two that resinated with me the most were :
- Stop comparing today to yesterday; look upon every day as a new world, only our “stuckness” makes it old.
- Don’t automatically act upon old thoughts and reactions. If you become aware of the same thought running through your head… same words ?? Pause and say to yourself – I’m not that person any more. Take a few breaths, centre yourself and when you feel settled, a new response will come to light. You are getting unstuck. You are no longer allowing limitations define who you are.
Personally I have never been more ready to become unstuck !
Out with the old and in with the new …..good bye Covid 🙂
PS It’s been 48 hours since I mowed the lawn and still no sign of post exertion malaise !!!
Life is good 🙂
