Do you think of yourself as creative? As a Life Empowerment Coach, I share with clients that everyone has their own personal definition of creativity. For some, creativity defines someone who is an author, painter, artist, musician or architect. And for others, being creative may fall into problem solving, innovation, discovery, origination.
Creativity brings fulfillment to life. Many of us do not consider ourselves a creative individual. Perhaps, we believe creativity is for the geniuses who have mastered some great and glamorous achievements. Just because we are not famous does not mean we are not creative. We all hold creativity. You can learn to recognize when the creative spirit is trying to stir your soul!
There are many areas in your life where you can apply creativity. It can be as simple as trying a new recipe, creating a new exercise routine or spending some time in nature and taking photos of landscapes, sunrise or sunsets. Using creativity for problem solving or brainstorming can be beneficial with work and business.
In order to continue moving ahead in life, using our creativity helps us develop new ideas and insights. Using our creativity provides fulfillment in life. Here are some tips on how to tap into your creativity:
Be open to insights from your unconscious mind. You can recognize these insights because they often are those moments when you are not thinking of anything particular. These moments often can happen when you are exercising, out in nature, in the shower and while sleeping, just to name a few. When this happens, take some action. Jot down a note, journal or do a quick internet search - Any action step that starts the process of bringing this creation into fruition is key.
Recall a time when you were having a conversation with a friend, acquaintance or even a kind stranger and something they said, triggered the creative spirit in you. Take this situation as a message. A message from spirit, the universe or whatever your beliefs are but this IS creativity trying to speak with you.
Listening to music, meditating or being out in nature are great ways to reconnect with spirit and get your creative juices flowing. These types of activities can be very useful when you may find yourself feeling stuck or overwhelmed. Try removing yourself from the situation for a while and focusing on something unrelated. This diversion will relieve your stress, rejuvenate your senses and give you the incentive to get back in the game.
By staying open and flexible to new ideas and possibilities and learning to trust your intuition, you will discover more creativity and fulfillment.
Wishing you many Creative and Fulfilling Moments in May!
