“Creativity comes from the spiritual realm, the collective consciousness. And the mind is in a different realm than the molecules of the brain. The brain is a receiver, not a source.” ~Candace Pert …
I love creativity–I it is such a wonderful and unique expression of our soul. And in expressing my personal creativity, I have found that it generally cannot be forced out, for it is not something held within my mind. When I try to ignite creativity on demand, I have very little success, for much of what Candace explains here is true in my experience: my “brain is a receiver, not a source,” and my creativity comes from my mind being receptive to the energies flowing through my soul.
At times, it was difficult for me to see the potential for creativity in all aspects of my life. After all, I was a math and computer science major in college, and math and programming generally consist of very specific formulae and algorithms that produce expected results–there does not seem to be a lot of room for my own creativity there. But there is if I allow there to be. If I relax more and allow things to flow through me, my own individual marks become apparent to me and to those around me.
There is so much wonder and beauty waiting to flow from you, if only you would allow it to; for everything you do in life holds the potential for you to express your creativity–when you sing, draw, dance, talk, interact with others, build, play. Share your life, dreams, vitality, and passion with those around you in all that you do. The creative mind is there within us–all we must do is simply listen with our minds when our heart and soul speaks.
Listen to your spiritual consciousness today–let your heart be your guide.
Questions to consider:
What is creativity to you?
How do you work to develop your creative side? How do you exercise it and help it to grow?
Have you ever tried just letting something happen through you rather than try to make it happen through your own will? How did it feel?
