Have you ever had one of those “Aha!” moments? When you create something out of nothing. Whether it's a poem, a painting or a concept. Just then you turn around and wonder where it came from. I like to think there is a universal source where old ideas and concepts go to be reinterpreted and recreated into a fresh point of view. This main source when connected to our hearts tends to resonate and reveal itself through our creativity and kind deeds. Then there are those dreaded times when you find yourself stuck and unfulfilled? When you feel as if you’ll never have another creative idea again. Here are some ways you can reinvigorate the creative force within.
Pay it Forward - You'll be surprised what a small deed can do for your spirits. Helping that elderly woman across the street gives you a feeling of lightness in your heart and can reconfirm that anything is possible.
Distort the View - Remember there are no rules when it comes to creativity. Look at things from a different angle. This shatters any conventional preconceptions and allows you to broaden your perspective.
Be silent - Find comfort in silence. Take the time to cultivate and nurture a relationship with yourself . Reacquaint yourself with the guidance within. It will lead you to your heart's greatest potential.
Synchronicity - Pay attention to synchronistic events. Such as, opening a book to the exact words you need to hear at that moment or getting a call from a long lost friend. When we are following our true creative calling we attract all the key components we need to manifest our goal.
"We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities."
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
