Exploring More Creatively

Exploring More Creatively

Let’s do a well-being check-in. How is your physical health, mental/emotional health, spiritual health and energetic health? Are you taking care of you? Feeling overwhelmed and stressed? Or are you striving for balance, peace and calmness? Are you accomplishing some previously neglected projects? Are you tapping into your creativity and creating?

Please continue to remember that you are human, and it is absolutely essential that you do your best to keep being present and honor the emotions as they arise.

In addition, devote time and energy to pursuing your passions. Brooks and I recently spent an entire day building Bluebird houses in the workshop. Years ago, we worked long hours preparing for art shows, so this was a nice opportunity to spend time in the workshop without feeling pressured to create and produce.

Brooks has also spent the last few months exploring more of his creativity. I encouraged him at Christmas to establish himself a painting studio in a room we seldom sit in. He hesitated at first, and I reminded him that it’s our home, and we can utilize the rooms in whatever way we choose. His view is looking out the bay window facing the East. Primarily a woodcarver, he is now exploring other artistic mediums including watercolor paintings. I even created him a website and encouraged him to join Instagram to share his creations with others.

As you feel led, encourage those around you to also pursue their passions. Our lives are meant to be lived rather than simply existing and going through the motions. Choose to explore more and be creative. Feel into what brings you joy and then do more of that.

Journey with Creativity

Journey with Creativity

Growing up, we were often told, “Use your imagination.” When hearing those words, I immediately think of being creative – writing a story, painting a picture or creating some other piece of art, playing a game or so on.

I recently used my own creative talents by creating my daughter’s floral arrangements for her wedding. Caitlin’s vision was a vintage theme for her wedding, so she borrowed numerous coffee pots and tea pots from her grandmother Sylvia. Purchasing bulk flowers from Sam’s Club, we (Caitlin, my mom and myself) arranged all of the flowers, and we had an immense amount of fun while doing so.

We didn’t have a game plan; we simply opted to use our imagination and see what evolved. I was reminded of a talk I presented at Unity of Fayetteville on Beholding the Power of Imagination. Here is a short excerpt along with a couple of tips to increase your imagination for better creative thinking:

The ability to imagine enables us to experience a whole world inside our mind, and it is the ultimate creative power. A developed and strong imagination can strengthen your creative abilities and is a great tool for creating consciously to achieve our heart’s desires. What we imagine with faith and feelings comes into being. This involves incorporating aspects of creative visualization, positive thinking and affirmations. George Bernard Shaw suggests “Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.”

One way to increase your imagination is to expand your interests. Creativity is fueled by passion. Expand your interests by shifting your focus to include other interests that you may be passionate about. Another way is to read more. Creativity and imagination are sparked by learning.

What are some ways you use your imagination and creative talents?
