3 Steps to Unleash Your Inner Creativity

Three Steps to Inner Creativity

Whether you are looking to transform a life of sadness and depression into one of happiness and joy, or you are wishing to take your artistry to a higher level, instead of keeping your attention on the goal, focus on taking these three steps:

  1. CLEAR YOUR INNER OBSTACLES

The first step toward unleashing the open flow of creativity is to attain a state of openness. That requires clearing away your negative self-image.

People who are stuck always seem to have excuses for not moving forward. not having Inner Transformationenough money or lacking support from loved ones, friends, or colleagues are very common examples. You may think, “I’m not good enough,” or “no one else has done it before,” or “This is not the right time and place.” But whether you have ten reasons or one hundred, external factors are not the real obstacle. The real block is within. It’s not that someone else is in your way—you yourself are the block. You are attached to the aspect of yourself that is blocking the way.

There are many methods for clearing awareness and improving self-image. Talk therapy is one. Practicing yoga is another. on a deeper level, meditation techniques such as the Bön Buddhist practices of tsa lung or the nine breathings of purification can help you clear the physical, energetic, and mental obstacles associated with negative self-image.

Here is a simple clearing practice you can try right now in order to begin the process of unleashing your creative energy:

  • Notice your internal dialogue. Are you always telling yourself things like: “This can’t work,” “no one will like it,” “I’m not good enough,” “I don’t have the energy,” or “It’s not worth the trouble.” Identify your primary obstacle. simply being aware that it is within you can help begin the process of unblocking.
  • Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and take a moment to feel the stillness of your body. Listen and hear the silence within and around you, and abide in the spaciousness of your mind. rest in this place of openness for a few minutes or longer.
  • Now, from that place of stillness, silence, and spaciousness, bring your main obstacle back into awareness. observe it nakedly, without concepts, judging, or evaluating. This is what I call “selecting” the issue.
  • Take in a deep breath of pure awareness, bringing it directly into the image or energetic feeling of the inner obstacle you have selected. As you exhale, breathe out the blockage and experience it dissolving into space. Be aware of that space and effortlessly rest there for a few minutes.

Repeat this breathing cycle over and over until you start to feel clearer inside. The more you become aware of what is blocking your creative flow and practice clearing it, the more you discover and cultivate a more positive sense of self that is based on the absence of obstacle. This much larger sense of self has nothing to do with identity and everything to do with openness. You are the infinite space that has opened up.

You may fear that without your old, familiar sense of pain identity, you are nothing. But Inner Transformationas you clear your sense of negative self-image, you can begin to discover that in its absence, you are everything. A sense of self that is founded in openness is unchanging, indestructible, and confident.

Whatever practice you use, the point is to discover a place of spaciousness within. Give time not only to clearing obstacles but also to becoming familiar with what opens up as a result. every moment you spend in a state of openness is cumulative and supports your ability to be in the flow. Let go, rest in the openness, and become familiar with it. Cultivate confidence in the realization that your true inner being cannot be changed by any force.

  1. OPEN TO YOUR POTENTIAL

If you can successfully clear the clouds of negative self-image and become more familiar with the vast sky, then by resting deeply enough in that space, you will begin to feel an even greater opening and sense of peace. The sparkling qualities manifesting in that space are the light of awareness and potentiality.

so the second step toward unleashing a free flow of creativity is to cultivate and connect fully with that awareness and sense of unlimited potential. once you do so, you can come to realize that not only are you more than you had always thought you were, but your entire world is full of positive alternatives. nothing is missing in your life; you are complete.

Finding solutions to problems may only require a new perspective, but sometimes it requires exploring whole new horizons. For example, in recent months I’ve met many people who have been telling me they can’t find work. But I truly feel that the reason they can’t find a job is only because they are the same person looking in the same types of places where they found no jobs before. The point here is to consciously and energetically let go of feeling not only internally blocked but also externally blocked.

It is very hard to look in a new place for solutions when you are the same old person. When there are obstacles in the way of reaching a professional, personal, or spiritual goal, a shift has to take place within you.

  1. NURTURE A SENSE OF WARMTH

Once you have realized a sense of openness, confidence, and unlimited potential, then qualities of joy—what I call warmth—can naturally arise. It is only from this warmth that creativity, finally, will freely manifest. The third condition for Inner Transformationconnecting with your creative nature, therefore, is to notice and nurture a feeling of warmth.

Just as the sky is the primary source of the sun and the oxygen-rich wind, which in turn give birth to all the flowers and trees, openness is the primary source of confidence and warmth, which in turn give birth to creative and enlightened manifestation.

Warmth is the place from which love, kindness, compassion, expansiveness, and creativity arise. It’s like sitting in a patch of sunlight in cold weather. As the light warms you, you begin to smile. The warmth you experience is a sense of feeling complete or, more specifically, no longer feeling incomplete. You are conscious that any feelings of inadequacy have dissolved and that you are more connected to your true self, so naturally you feel complete.

Once anger is cleared, its antidote—love—can more spontaneously arise. once sadness and feelings of inadequacy are cleared, joy and completeness are revealed. I’m not just saying this; for centuries, yogis and other practitioners have witnessed these results from meditation practice, and my own students have seen such effects within a few days of practice.

When you create more space and awareness, positive qualities naturally arise. The more familiar you become with a sense of warmth, the more often these joyful feelings will be evident. If this warmth is something you have seldom felt before, it’s only because you have never before provided the space for it to manifest.

If you feel the stirring of joy, just be aware of it. Particularly feel it in your heart, and allow it to expand throughout your body—through your blood, your skin. Feel all the billions of cells in your body communicating with each other through this joy. Let your voice speak from that place, and you will feel warmth reflecting back on you from the people you speak with.

This is something you’ve wanted and needed all your life, and now you are feeling it. Warmth is not goal oriented; it is about connecting with your very being. Creativity flows from here.

Become The Creator Of Your Dreams

WE CAN CREATE OUR OWN DESTINY AND DREAMS.

You are the divine creation on this earth. You have been given all the power to live the life of your dreams.

Living your dreams is not a coincidence, its a process to align your mind and soul with your action to go on the journey until you reach your destination.  Sounds easy doesn’t it, and it is, if you set your mind to it.

On this journey of life, you will find joy and sorrow, you will find support and obstacles, and you will have achieved success and failure. past can hurt changeBut every time you find happiness or success you will feel great. Most of the time when you come face to face with adversity, you want to run away or blame others for the same, but that is not how to do it, is it?  But you still want to run away, don’t you?

Many people make their parents, partner, family, friends, employer and society responsible, for their failures. While doing so, they don’t take ownership and dump it on someone else. This may give you a moment of satisfaction, that you are not responsible for your failure and that you think someone else is. But is that true satisfaction?  How long does it last?  There are people who spend their lifetime making other people responsible for every misadventure in their lives and project themselves as a victim of destiny.

I am sure that you know at least one person like this or have met one somewhere in your life, would you agree?

If you are doing the same, whether you blame others or situations for all the failures in your life or even just some of them, I have one question for you: “Is it giving you the happiness and the success you desire?”

I bet the answer is NO.

Still, many people do it and it becomes such a habit, that they just keep telling the story of their misery to others again and again.  which just reinstates that ‘negative’ lifestyle for them, one of misery.  Beginning to see the pattern here yet?  Its a cicle of “woe is me….”

IF YOU HAVE EVEN THE TINIEST OF DESIRE TO LIVE WITH HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS THEN YOU MUST TAKE OWNERSHIP AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE. BY EVEN JUST TAKING 100% RESPONSIBILITY FOR EVEN JUST 1% FAILURE IN YOUR LIFE, WILL START TO SHIFT THINGS FOR THE BETER.

blaming othersYou must be thinking “why should I take responsibility for others misdeeds, right?” They are to blame, not me…

Every situation and every person you have in your life are what you have attracted to you. Sometimes you do it consciously and sometimes, unconsciously. But the true transformation happens through your actions, be it possitive or negative.

When you truely understand that you are living like a magnet in this Universe and the Law of Attraction is sending you everythingyou are asking for, you will start to understand that you ARE the Creator of your Dreams….

While taking ownership of all your failure, you may feel like a loser who has made all the mistakes to create this misery, but that’s not the wisdom that I want you to remember.

When I ask you to take 100% responsibility for your life, I want you to see the true wisdom of life and that is:

WHEN YOU ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF YOUR PAIN, MISERY AND FAILURE THEN, AND ONLY THEN, CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE ONLY CREATOR OF YOUR SUCCESS, HAPPINESS, AND ABUNDANCE.

By you making others responsible for your failure then unconsciously you wait for their permission and actions to make you happy and successful also.  You are GIVING others permission to ‘control’ your feelings and emotions.  Is this what you want?

Hey, I want to OWN my FEELINGS and EMOTIONS, they are mine!

But when the shift happens and you take 100% responsibility for even just 1% of your failure or mistakes, that’s when you know that you are the 100% creator of your dreams and happiness.  This is when you will truely begin to LIVE life to its fullest…

Now is the time when you stop blaming others and situations, but resolve to start a journey of your own. Now is the time when you must take yourself to a level where you know that you are thearchitect of your dreams.

Manifestation

Take 100% control of your life and become the creator of your dreams.

Once you are living your life where you are in control, you will be amazed at how everything you dream of, starts to manifest and happen.  Little signs will appear guiding you, people will come into your life to teach you lessons or to give you guidance that you need but are not even aware off.  This is when life truely is amazing.  Embrace this life if you are not already doing so.

Live a life of gratitude.  If you wish to find out how to do this, please read my blog on how to “Access the Power of Gratitude” here.

Become one with yourself like yin and yang…   Become one with the universe and grow to your fullest potential.

Yours in love and light

Selene | Selenite Crystals to the 3rd Eye Chakra

Selenite Crystals to the 3rd Eye Chakra

I had an amazing experience earlier this week, when I was given a beautiful piece of Selenite Crystal. I decided to find out more about this crystal and to share that information with you through my blog!

Selene ~ Greek for ‘Moon’

The name selenite comes from the Greek word Selene, meaning ‘moon’,

Santa-Sabina-Rome-Selenite-windows
Santa-Sabina-Rome-Selenite-windows

because of its soft white light and many metaphysical and healing benefits. It has been used for window panes, such as those in Santa Sabina in Rome. The giant crystals in the Naica Cave of Crystals are Selenite Gypsum.

Selenite is a stone of mental clarity. This clarity enhances mental flexibility and enables strong decision making abilities.  It can affect everyday life as full mental clarity is brought into play to lesson confusion and mental disorientation.

Selenite is also a stone of truth and honesty. This helps promotes good business practices as well as honesty in other types of relationships.  A stone of love, which on the surface may seem odd. Its properties of mental flexibility and honesty, help maintain a loving relationship comfortably and with ease. It also brings harmony and inner peace which allows for recognizing love and acting in a loving manner. Letting you live your life in love and gratitude.

Selenites association with the moon, brings associations and energies of the unconscious, instinct, subconscious, and emotional well-being.  The moon association also brings water energy to the fore, creating the flexibility and intuition.

Though selenite is associated with the moon, it is also known as a ‘sweet angel stone’. It is used for contacting and communicating with the universe for guidance. It can also be used for finding and working with other spirit guides.

SeleniteThis stone aids in removing energy blocks, particularly from the physical and etheric bodies. It can also remove energy blocks in the bodies of other crystals and stones. This makes it excellent for enhancing the properties of other stones and for clearing and charging them.

It is a stone of powerful intuition and psychic awareness through its influence on the third eye chakra.  You can access past lives and do past life work and healing with it. It is also beneficial for psychic efforts, especially clairvoyance.

These words should not to be taken lightly… as these higher beings are extraordinarily powerful… and expect a lot from those who choose to make the decision to follow this path. It is recommended that you might like to seek advice from alchemical healers who have the specific knowledge on how this is done.

Meditation

Quite a few “readers” use this stone as it is believed meditation and spiritual development can also be eased and promoted by selenite.  Meditations become sparkling clear over time when working with selenite and it brings a clarity to your spiritual understanding of the universe and your place in it.

Meditation with the powerful high crystal energy stones… including and specifically White Selenite crystals… may open and activate this chakra. Daily meditation is highly recommended if you want your spiritual path to move more quickly. Depending on your prior experiences… including those in past lives… this will happen at the pace of your own souls journey.

It’s a great stone for protection as it is believed to dispel negativity, both on an emotional and etheric level. This energy combined with its angel associations makes it outstanding for angelic protection. You only have to hold the selenite and ask with intent for the universe to protect you.

Selenite is primarily associated with the Crown and Third Eye chakras. It is also related to the sacral chakra.

Cleansing Selenite

Note: 

DO NOT WET your Selenite Crystals, as they may dissolve in water. Alternatively they may not actually dissolve but may discolor or pit. This may vary according to the specific variety.

Even sealed pieces that have been fashioned into pendants or made into hearts or other shapes may lose their lovely sheen. In some cases, depending on the type, thin slices may come away.

Contact with water is not recommended for any variety of Selenite.

Listen to yourself through Meditation | Daily Meditation

Listen to yourself through Meditation

Close your eyes and go within and listen to the sounds of silence.  I would suggest finding some background music that you can have on ‘softly’ in the background to help you relax.

Here is a link to some music, its 20 minutes long.

Disregard the constant jabbering of the monkey mind that doesn’t seem to know when to shut up. Pay no heed to it, and it will dissipate like a cloud on a windy day.  As each throught comes, just push it away.

Let yourself drift like a feather gently seeking its way to the ground without the help of anything or anybody.

While softly settling in, focus on your breathe. Feel it as it expands in the lower body area (your belly) and then leaves through the inhalation of the nostrils. Be aware of the movement in the chest, the abdomen or just in the cavity behind the nose, the mouth and the eyes.  Redefining Love

Use that breathe as an anchor. Become so familiar with it so that you can gently nudge your attention back to it when your mind slips from the silent stillness and seeks to cling to a thought, an idea or a concept.

Let them all go

It is in this deep silence that you can discover the Source of Life. You’ll know it when you touch it. Like magic, you’ll realize that for a moment you have no worries and no desires. You will be exactly where you need to be and know that everything is just right — right nownow in the moment.

By stilling the mind and touching the Source, you’ll be able to contact the Wisdom You Were Born With. It is the wisdom of love and compassion with an understanding that we are all one, all together in a universe that works in union with us and all other sentient beings. This wisdom offers unconditional love and acceptance and provides the creative spark your intuition can tap into once you ask its counsel and guidance.

Did you receive a message?

Now try it again and again,
