Nothing feels better than the experience of empowered creative energy running through your body.
You know that feeling when you’ve just accomplished something you really care about?
Or the experience of having a brilliant idea?
When you feel passionate about what you’re working towards, with plenty of energy to get the necessary work done, what’s that like for you?
All of these things are involved when you’re aligned with your creative flow.
Think of a person you know who’s very healthy, happy, and successful. Do you think they’re connected to themselves like this?
You can hear it in someone’s voice when they’re in this creative state. Their voice has a whole different resonance to it, doesn’t it?
You can see the glow of their skin and the light in their eyes, regardless of their age, size, or gender. They turn heads when they walk into a room. They seem to attract opportunities effortlessly, they seem carefree and confident. They feel comfortable in their own skin, and everyone around them can see it.
Not only do these people feel inspired themselves, but they inspire everyone around them.
They’re easy to remember, but they can be difficult to emulate… even if you’re usually one of them.
When you’re feeling out of sync with those amazing creative juices, give these steps a try:
1. Move your body. Get out of your head, and into your body. Slow down & stretch. Get up and go for a walk. Focus on your breath. In a locked, uninterrupted space, breathe and bring your conscious awareness to the sensations in different parts of your body. Explore how those sensations feel. This can be uncomfortable to do, but it’s almost guaranteed to move you past whatever’s blocking you. If emotions surface, just let it happen & let it pass. Everything is normal.
2. Get back to the basics. Who are you? Where do you come from? Where do you want to go? What’s important to you? What are you really passionate about? Take some time to reflect on these questions. Journal about them if you’d like. Cancel your plans if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed. Unplug from your devices, stop checking social media, let go of what others think. Watch some favorite movies or listen to your favorite music. Remember, anything is possible. If you can believe it, you can achieve it.
3. Connect with others. Who’s someone who never fails to bring out the best in you? Reach out to them. Brainstorm your thoughts & ideas with someone else, so you can get out of your own head and use the feedback from others. When we’re open to collaboration, we can take each other’s ideas to the next level, and we can have fun while we do it. Incorporating different perspectives makes for dynamic success.
When you reach that extraordinary creative connection with yourself, remember how much you deserve it. Be ready to repeat the process over and over again, as long as you live. Don’t forget to enjoy every second of the ride.
