CREATE

Welcome to CREATE, a five part course to help you remember your creative power, realise inspiration and recover your gift for joyful imagining. CREATE is designed to be worked through one module a day over the course of five days. This will allow you the time and space to let the information you absorb and uncover within really develop for you, reawakening your awareness of your creative capacity, your wellbeing and your right to explore and enjoy your creativity. Of course if you know you will benefit from making your way through CREATE in another way, then do; your intuition and authentic path must be honoured.

The layout of this course and the messages shared here are simple and yet opening up to a truth that exists before, beneath and beyond the conditioned self can be confronting as well as empowering so please be gentle, kind and patient with yourself as you rediscover your creative power and all that it allows for you.

We operate from subconscious beliefs about who we are programmed and conditioned to believe ourselves to be and we act and take part in the world accordingly. Once we discover who we really are, we can reprogramme these beliefs and expand beyond the illusory self in to a truer expression. It is once we enter the space of truth and limitless potential that magic happens.

I hope you enjoy CREATE and allow yourself to uncover the inspiration, creativity and joy that exist within you as well as your ability to consciously imagine, dream, play and flow as you create all that you are guided to. You are lived by and a part of the creative energy of life. Allowing yourself to be open to it as it flows to and through you will lead you to realise how naturally creative you are and how much fun it is to consciously create.

Return to this course after you have first completed it and let its messages take you deeper on your journey of self realisation, refreshing your connection to your ability to imagine, dream, play and flow as you create.

PART ONE: NATURALLY CREATIVE

Why Not You?

You are naturally creative. You are lived by and a part of the creative energy of life. Knowing that the energy of life flows to you and through you and experimenting with its creative power is what will lead you to remember how naturally creative you are and how much fun it is to allow yourself to create. All that is stopping you from creating what you want to is an idea that creating it is beyond you.

If you consider that those you witness thriving in ways that inspire you have the same inner resources as you, the same faculties, potential and creative power, then it is time to start asking, why not you? Are you living the life you want to live? When you were younger and you felt limitless, would this have been the experience of life you envisioned for yourself? How many ideas about what you can’t do have prevented you from trusting your intuition, following your dreams, opening up to inspiration, exploring your ability to create a life that you enjoy and desire?

You have the ability to create, to be inspired and to inspire others to create because you are a part of an energy that is creativity in essence. Not only do you have access to this energy, you are lived by this energy, you are guided by this energy and you are able to tap into and make use of this energy by giving up the ideas that are holding you back from embracing who you really are, getting out of the way, so that your innate capacity to create and the inspiration that is always flowing through you can be known.

You were Born Creative

From the moment you entered this world you have been creating ideas, concepts, beliefs, ideologies, philosophies. These guide the thinking you create, the feelings you create, the behaviour you create, the home you create, the meals you create, the relationships you create, the work you create and on and on every day. You have been creating since birth and all day every day make use of your natural ability to create which is so innate to you that you don’t even notice you are using it.

You create your experience of life by creating thinking and feeling about it. You create a sense of self, how you show up in the world, the rules you live by and the behaviour you engage in which you have decided are all appropriate for who you have created yourself to be. These creations inform the way you express yourself in the world and relate to it. Yet when you overlook that these are all creative acts, you forget that you are creative, always engaging in creating and miss out on the magic and power you hold to create consciously in ways that align with your truth and serve you.

All that you need to do to begin to create in ways that fulfil and delight you, ways that engage your wisdom and knowledge and inspiration, is, with patience and love and compassion, begin to reflect on the experience of life that you are creating for yourself. As soon as you create enough distance from the personality, identity, self you have come to identify with, you will experience your natural ability to dissolve in to the free flowing, intuitively guided, innately creative truth of who you are and you will be able to start recognising, harnessing and enjoying your creative power because you will not stand in its way any longer, you will realise you are its way.

You are Your Greatest Creation

Although it may have been a while since you last truly engaged and connected with who you really are, you sense when you are out of alignment with your wellbeing and one of the ways this manifests is as a seeming lack of creativity. We are so focused on who we are not and what we can’t do that we come to feel disconnected from our creative energy, insightful impulses and innate inspiration and lose faith in our ability to create. This is because we are facing away from truth towards what covers up and distracts us from it.

As children, we attempt to fit in with or feel right in the world by creating a sense of self that we believe will allow us to achieve this. Until we examine the experience of life we are creating for ourselves, we continue to do so. And still, no matter how far we feel we have moved away from it, our truth, our essence is whole and stable and available to guide us in processing, moving on from and letting go of what has blocked us, healing and restoring us as we are led to see the innocence in our trying to survive by reacting to life as we have done. You can decide to let go of the illusory self you have been creating in order to allow a more authentic expression to emerge. You can operate from the wellbeing, health and happiness that are innate to you. You can uncover your ability to live a life that recognises, honours and is guided by your truth, your worth and your ability to joyfully imagine, consciously create and live well.

You are your greatest creation. Who you are is Divine, glorious, magnificent and innately creative and you can begin to experience this truth in your everyday life as soon as you recognise yourself as a manifestation of the loving intelligence of life, as an expression of its creative power, as a being of unique wonder and beauty and wisdom so that you allow yourself to explore and experience your creative capacity, realise your imaginative potential and start creating yourself in a way that enables you to experience all you have ever wanted and deserve to receive and achieve.

How do I prevent myself from being creative?


DO THE WORK


When we want to be more creative, we often overlook how creative we already are in our everyday lives. Whether you are creating meals, outfits, bedtime stories, your work, a routine, you are endlessly creating and using your creative gifts in everything you do. A great way to recognise how creative you are is by making a list at the end of the day of everything you have created. Once you see how and where you are already creating, you will feel a sense of wonder and achievement. And from the space of appreciation for your abilities, you can decide that since you are creating any way, why not have some fun whilst you do? Why not introduce an element of play to the way you create life?

Your work for today is to:


PART TWO: REMEMBERING FUN

When did You Stop Playing?

Creating is an act of play, it is a way to harness the energies of imagination, fun, enjoyment and flow within us so that we bring in to the world what we are intuitively guided to. When we think of play, we think of inspiration, development, growth. As adults we can very easily give up our sense of play. We become conditioned to believe that life is hard, reward is achieved through suffering and that successful adults are serious. This actually seems to be very far from the truth because we are at our best when we are innovative, adaptive, flexible, creative which we are when we open our minds, give up rigid thinking and play. Whilst success means different things to different people, one interpretation sees those who are operating from wellbeing, playing at life, expressing organically and intuitively, consciously creating, learning and enjoying the moment as truly succeeding.

It is when we play that we allow our thoughts to flow, our minds to be calm and our wisdom and creative energy to guide us. In play, we approach challenge from curiosity and openness, we are interested in what we might learn and how we might grow through and move beyond what we come up against. We allow life to still be enjoyable and fun and we give up on notions of success because we are able to feel good as we deal with what we need and want to creatively, getting things done in new ways, having new experiences and gaining greater insight into what we are able to do and achieve.

Creating is fun. Consciously creating is play. Any time you have come to feel that the act of creativity is otherwise it is because you have started to entertain thoughts that turn you away from inspiration and lightness, from flow and the momentum it brings. There is nothing wrong with this, it is just that it is more enjoyable to have fun, it is more beneficial to play, you feel better when you let go of seriousness and favour a lighter approach to living, creating in a way that allows for inspiration, that is aware of your capabilities and sees you using your imagination to your advantage.

Seriousness is Distracting You

Until you were taught otherwise, you did not feel condemned to seriousness, you did not believe that being serious would help you have more fun or a better experience or learn more about life and yet as an adult you have come to take things very seriously. This has turned you away from inspiration, creativity and your ability to flow with life from an open, inspired and innovative state of mind and you have become distracted from your natural ability to consciously create. As we get older and we begin to take on ideas about what is achievable for us and what isn’t, we gradually forget our truth and the more distant we become from it, the more distant we feel from happiness, wholeness and our innate creativity. What a relief it is then when we remember who we really are.

Until we do remember, when we see others remembering who they really are and living creatively, enjoying lives of satisfaction, health, wealth and success, we often feel that what they have available to them that allows them to enjoy life in such a way, we don’t. When we take this thinking and the feelings it creates seriously, we are turned away from our limitless potential to create and grow and thrive and instead of living in the world of possibility and wonder we inhabited as children, we find ourselves in an experience that feels difficult to navigate and may come to believe we are unable to thrive.

When we take life seriously, we are operating from the limited mind which creates a skewed and distorted vision of the world based upon ideas about life that are not enhancing our lives or evolving us; rarely are we guided towards allowing inspiration, new thinking and fresh ways of experiencing and taking part in the world from this mindset. It is when we loosen our grip on what directs us away from having fun and allow ourselves to relax in to a lighter approach, a more joyful and expansive state of being that we are able to allow life to unfold and ourselves to creatively respond to it. Taking life seriously does not lead us to health and happiness. Taking our ability to live from our innate health, happiness and creativity seriously would be a better way to operate.

The Benefits of Enjoyment

Enjoying life is good for our health, it raises the frequency of our vibration so that we are in tune with happiness, inspiration, wisdom, wellbeing and creativity. Enjoyment feels good, it benefits us mentally, emotionally and physically and as we start to look for opportunities to enjoy ourselves, we naturally become more creative in the way that we view and take part in life. There is a freedom to creating that expresses the truth of our inner being that is never constrained, weighed down, held back. When we enjoy life, we are expressing wellbeing, aligned with the self that is whole and healthy and free.

We are energised by creating because we remove our attention from what has been distracting us from our potential and when we do, blocks to the expression of our wellbeing, health and wholeness disappear. When we forget to take our unhelpful thinking seriously, we lighten up, we express our innate happiness, we wonder, we imagine, we enjoy, we play, we become free to create, unrestricted by limited ideas about who we are, what we can do, what is appropriate or expected or necessary. In the space of creativity, we expand beyond our restraints and we tune in to the energy of life. We enter a zone of pure being in which inspiration flows through us and we create for the joy of it, revelling in our ability to operate this way.

You are always creating but if you are not aware of how or what you are bringing in to being, you might feel as if your life is out of your control. Once you recognise that you get to create the way you experience life, as well as the way you experience yourself and all of your innate abilities, you will quickly find that you are inspired, that you are energised by a creative power and that when you allow yourself to have fun, you begin creating what you had not even imagined possible from seriousness.

Your affirmation for today is:

I am able to play at life safe in the knowledge that I have the creative power and wisdom to meet its challenges and generate solutions and feel good as I do.


EXPRESS


Take a pen and paper and allow your true self to expand upon what you have read here as a stream of consciousness. Allow your creative abilities to guide you in giving voice to your inner wisdom which is available always to lead you towards a more consciously creative way of being.


EXPLORE


Now you are in a state of flow and awareness, take a moment to close your eyes, get quiet within and ask yourself the questions below, writing down your answers as they arise.

When did I last have fun and what conditions do I set for allowing myself to enjoy life?
How do I feel when I take life seriously and how effective am I at creating and enjoying when I do?
In which areas can I bring more enjoyment in to my creative endeavours?
Where in my life would it benefit me to play?


DO THE WORK


Play is more fun and less effort than a tired approach to life that leaves us feeling trapped or bored or disillusioned. Taking a new approach to something you already do can help you to bring in elements of creativity to your day. Setting a creative goal each morning will allow you to start to play at life again and get into the habit of looking for more ways to be creative. Reflecting on the following questions can help your creativity flow and release you from a mindset that only a serious approach to life yields results: What can I create today? How can I play? How can I make my routine more fun? How can I make my everyday creative tasks more interesting? How can I make my experience more rewarding? Play is practical too. Ideas of any nature are still created by you. Why not create ideas that resonate with your innate joy and inspire you to play more?

PART THREE: MAKING SPACE

Room to Create

When our minds feel busy and full, it can seem as if we have no room to create. As soon as you allow your thoughts to flow, they will and when you allow new thoughts to enter your consciousness, they will bring the opportunity for new experience with them. Whatever you believe about life is true and real for you and so if you believe you have no room for creativity, this will be what you experience. If, when you notice yourself investing in and aligning with this belief, you let it go and allow yourself to become quiet and still, you will naturally begin to feel more spacious and this will affect how you view and approach and respond to life.

Once you start to see that your experience is your creation and that you are living in a reality of your own making then it makes sense to explore what you might create that benefits you, that delights you, that helps you to start operating from a clearer and more spacious state of mind. Once you begin to get curious about this and investigate your ability to experience a sense of spaciousness within, you will naturally have more moments of calm, meditation, reflection when you will be guided to move forwards by the creative energy of life that is always leading us to learn and grow and transform.

In these moments of peace and quiet and stillness, be aware of the unease and unhappiness that occur when you entertain ideas that you are not good enough, that you are not worthy, that you are unable to create in the ways you want to and know that this is the result of turning away from truth. This is the result of believing in what does not serve you and what directs you away from your wellbeing and innate ability to thrive in the world. Now notice how you feel when you recall the experience of a clear mind able to joyfully imagine, able to consciously envision, able to have fun creating and trust the feelings of bliss within you. You are naturally creative and able to achieve; trust this truth and let everything that would turn you away from it pass by.

Unleashing Potential

There are areas in your life in which you are already creative without too much thinking preventing you from creating with ease and flow. You get to choose how you experience life and you can experience the joy of endless and limitless creativity and play just by waking up to the areas and ways in which you already enjoy creating every day and why you feel able to in those and not in others. Allowing yourself to get creative in every area and in ways you enjoy is the beginning of a more playful and fulfilling existence. Where are you not allowing yourself to be creative and why might this be the case? How might you be preventing yourself from enjoying creating in the areas you already are?

How we feel is down to the way we view life and our place in it. Our experience is the result of the perspective we create that directs our thinking that generates feelings that inform our actions. Once we are inspired to, we can create a new way of viewing the world, ourselves, our creativity and inspiration and see how this changes how we think and feel and where this takes us. Creating the life that you want begins with the recognition that you have the power to do it. Playing at life frees us to explore our creativity and imagination. You have the ability to create the life you dream of. You have the gift of creation. You are endlessly inspired and within, you have the potential to keep creating no matter what you have been told or what you have come to believe about yourself. Unleashing your potential to create the life you want to be living begins by truly embracing your ability to create and your right to do so.

Have you been investing in and holding on to ideas about unworthiness, fear of failure or success? Have you been concerned about starting something you might not complete? Once you let go of the ideas and beliefs that cause you to doubt your inner resources, faculties and wellness, you will find that inspiration takes you over and guides you. And when something is not working or no longer resonates with you, your wisdom will let you know so that you can let it go with grace, making space for the inspiration to begin something new. You have the creative power of thought and now is the time to begin using it to your advantage rather than to make yourself feel small, less than, unable, not enough. Let your thoughts flow so that your mind gets quiet enough for inspiration to be known. Practice affirming that you are creative and able to channel the creative energy of life. Feel the truth of your creative power and make it a founding belief as you remember how effortlessly creative you really are.

Engage and Express

Creativity is innate to you and when you are free flowing and riding the waves of life, you allow yourself to engage and express it in any given moment. If this is not the case right now then reflect on where can you get creative in your life with little effort. In which areas do you feel whole and well and sure of your right to express your creativity and your innate ability to enjoy doing so? Beginning to be more creative where you already enjoy life with little resistance is a great first step to engaging and expressing your creative energy.

This will allow you to create just for fun, without expectation or doubt or limiting beliefs getting in your way. And once you get out of the way of your creativity you will be able to begin creating in areas that you have come to view as too hard or impossible and you will find that whilst creativity can take work, commitment, dedication and time, it is effort that feels effortless when you stay out of the way and allow your inner resources and faculties to take the lead so that you surrender to your true self, your intuition, your wisdom and experience how capable and creative you really are.

Once you start to reflect on where you are holding back from being creative in your life and the ideas you pay attention to that tell you creativity is not appropriate or available there, you will uncover many unhelpful and untrue beliefs that you do not have the power, stamina, resilience or inclination to create. You do. You demonstrate this every day in the areas in which you are already creating and in the strength of the experience you create for yourself in every moment of your life. Direct that creative energy away from energising what makes you feel your creative power is blocked or stagnant or non existent and allow it to take you beyond the limited. Your true self knows the way. It is time to start creating consciously, with intent and allowing inspiration to take you over.

Your affirmation for today is:

I am effortlessly creative and allow this to be my experience in all areas of my life.


EXPRESS

EXPLORE


Now you are in a state of flow and awareness, take a moment to close your eyes, get quiet within and ask yourself the questions below, writing down your answers as they arise.

When do I feel least creative and what role does my state of mind play in this?
Do I trust that I am naturally creative and why might I have come to believe otherwise?
In which areas do I easily create and how can I bring this sense of creative ease and flow in to other areas of my life?
What do I enjoy in life and how might I use this enjoyment to engage and express my creativity in these areas?


DO THE WORK


We all have hobbies we enjoy and passions that excite us and when we get creative with these, amazing things happen. We have limitless potential. When we combine this with a cause or project that resonates with us, we find ourselves guided by inspiration, in a state of creative ease and flow in which ideas come to us, solutions occur and we trust ourselves to come up with more and more creative ways to play at life in every area.

PART FOUR: ALLOWING INSPIRATION

Open Up to Truth

Until we understand that what we seek is within us, we long for truth, health and happiness at the same time as we keep making moves away from turning towards them. Once we start to see that before, beneath and beyond any experience we create for ourselves, anything we go through in life, that we are whole, strong and resilient, it is time for us to allow all of the limiting beliefs we have spent time investing in to be identified so that we can notice how they make us feel and head in the opposite direction, letting go of our investment in them as we expand beyond them.

You are able to sit with the feelings that arise when you consider your blocks to creativity. When you are quiet within, you are able to witness the experience of limiting beliefs with the distance that inner silence affords. It is okay to feel, there is nothing to worry about, simply remember that you are not your thinking, you are not your feelings, you are not the experience of them but the creator of them, able to allow them to pass and create a new experience in their wake.

Support yourself as you uncover your truth and come up against the stories that you are not able, not enough, not safe to create and cannot or should not enjoy creating. Self care is self love and self love is recognising the innocence in identifying with the experience of confused and unhelpful thinking. Forgive yourself for the blocks you have placed in your own way and allow them to dissolve. They are only thoughts and thoughts can be let go of any time we choose to see through them.

Change the Story

All of your life, you have told a story about who you are, who other people are, how the world operates and more and it is time to change it now so that it is narrated by truth, inspired by wellbeing, consciously brought to life by your creative abilities and guides you to keep opening up to who you really are, what you are capable of and the creative flow that is available to you when you release yourself from what doubts or directs you away from it.

It is time to listen to a new voice, one that believes in you because it is the true you, your creative centre, intuitive wisdom, the loving intelligence of life that keeps it moving, evolving, transforming, fresh and new in every moment. This voice will lead you only towards expansion, evolution, transformation, joy, happiness and health. This voice will guide you to live from wellbeing so that you are more consciously creative in your day, enjoying your connection with the energy of life that flows through you and from you in to the world.

If you could tell your younger self what life would hold for you, would you choose the voice of the limited mind to narrate or the voice of truth and love that tells of your innate power, limitless potential, creative energy and endless inspiration? You are using your vast imagination to bring to life the story that you keep telling yourself. Change the story now and use your imagination to encourage awareness of the knowledge that you can move beyond the illusory obstacles you have innocently set in your way, dissolve the blocks you have created and allow yourself to embrace your ability to create and enjoy creating.

Believe in Yourself

Think about everything you have created in your life and enjoy the feelings of capability, awe and wonder that arise when you do. You are plugged in to an energy that is creativity in essence and the moment you tune in to it, you are able to create without end. Believing that you can do this is as simple as recalling the times you have been able to and bringing to life the ease, enthusiasm, flow and fun you experienced. As you ground in and align with joyful creating, you can also reflect on the times you allowed yourself to recognise what wasn’t working and gracefully moved on to something new, affirming your ability to follow and trust inspiration and your intuition, strengthening your self belief as you do.

Your creative power, your capacity for inspired action, your ability to innovatively work with life never leaves you, so in the moments you feel it has gone away, know that all that has changed is what you have come to believe is true for you. When you innocently energise ideas that turn you away from self trust, self love, self reverence, self enthusiasm, self belief and faith in your creative power, know that this is also an act of creation and that you can once again head in the direction of conscious creation with the sense of fun and play that are natural to you.

There will be times when you choose not to create, when you are guided to rest and relax and be still. And yet these will also be times of creation as you think new thoughts and enjoy new experiences and open yourself up to new reflections and insights about life that guide you in your work, your daily living and that you learn and grow from. You do not have to be concerned about turning your creativity off or lessening its power by taking a break. Trust your inner wisdom and be guided by inspiration so that you allow yourself to have slower times when they are right for you; you will enjoy another way of creating when you do.


AFFIRM


Your affirmation for today is:

I know who I am and what I am capable of and allow this knowledge to guide me in consciously creating.


EXPRESS


Take a pen and paper and allow your true self to expand upon what you have read here as a stream of consciousness. Allow your creative abilities to guide you in giving voice to your inner wisdom which is available always to lead you towards a more consciously creative way of being.


EXPLORE


Now you are in a state of flow and awareness, take a moment to close your eyes, get quiet within and ask yourself the questions below, writing down your answers as they arise.

What stories have I been telling myself about creativity that I have not wanted to investigate or been unaware of until now?
How can I support myself as I face my limiting beliefs about my ability to create?
What is the most empowering self truth I am aware of and how can I use this to propel me towards greater self realisation?
What would I create if I had no thinking holding me back?


DO THE WORK


Once you have uncovered your creative power and begun to let creativity flow again, you can drop the story you have been telling yourself that sets limits on what you are able to do and achieve. Getting curious about any roadblocks on the creative path caused by commitment issues, fear of failure, limited thinking about success, will lead you to get creative about how to deal with them, allowing you to see how you are always creating in every area so that you begin to investigate how you might start using your creative power in a way that really serves you. Once we start playing at life, we begin to be carried along by a momentum that leads us beyond self imposed restrictions and limitations. Letting yourself open up to a truer narrative about your creative abilities will guide you to start creating in a way that moves you beyond limiting beliefs and towards an experience of creative possibility and potential.

PART FIVE: PLAYING AGAIN

The Gift of Imagination

You have been blessed with the gift of imagination, with the ability to bring your ideas to life in your mind so that you can experience what you do not in the world of form. This is an act of creation so phenomenal you have overlooked the power of it as it has become commonplace for you to use this faculty to bring to life experiences of what you don’t want and can’t do out of a misguided notion that you are somehow keeping yourself safe this way.

Utilising a great power to prevent yourself from engaging and expressing your natural abilities, skills and talents and the love, health, peace, strength and happiness that are innate to you does not aid you. Opening up to your truth, grounding in it, creating from it, will lead you to use the gift of imagination to create and experience an inner world in which you know you are able and capable and which leads you to consciously create in the world outside of you in the areas you want to because you know that you can.

Meditating every morning on what you want to create for yourself that day can take as little as five minutes and bring to life an experience that carries you through it with grace, confidence, faith and love which will naturally lead you in to a state of gratitude and appreciation for all that you are able to do with the your creative power. Imagine how you might use the creative energy that is available to you to bring your ideas to life. It only gets more wonderful when you realise that you get to choose what you think about creating, what you create, how, when and why.

Visualise

Imagination allows us to visualise so that we create a mental image of something and feel it to be true. As the subconscious does not know the difference between fact and fiction, visualisation is a powerful way to reprogramme our belief systems, break free of unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and being and reclaim the energy once used to struggle against our wellness and channel it in to bringing our dreams to life. Visualisation allows us to see ourselves creating in a way that is guided by and expresses our health and happiness. As we imagine ourselves creating in this way, we experience and identify creating with a state of ease and joy, with being led by grace and flow to explore with a sense of fun and play where our creative might power take us.

Visualisation allows us to bypass our blocks when we choose for it to, bringing to life an experience of ourselves as free flowing, confidently creative, playing at life and enjoying every moment. If all we are ever doing is creating an experience of life then why not start to create one that is joy filled and empowering or at least entertain this as a possibility? You can create any experience of life that you want and when you are guided by your insightful impulses, your wellbeing, your wisdom and your truth to take inspired action, you will begin to surprise yourself with just how able you are to create well.

From the idea that there are no limits to what you can create, consider what you would like to bring in to being, how you would do it, what would allow you to create it and where you would go from there. Operating from wellbeing, having fun, engaging imagination, playing with the power and resources within will not steer you wrong. You may not always create what you set out to or continue with what you begin but you will be generating and allowing in new ideas, experiences and opportunities and if life is a journey, what better way to spend it?

Reawakening Your Awareness

In order to make use of your internal resources you have to know that they are there and deep down, you do. It may have been a while since you believed in them but you have always had a sense that there was greatness within you and you are right. It is time now to reawaken awareness of your truth, of your natural and innate ability to be inspired and to channel your creative energy so that you start moving towards growth, expansion and a deeper knowledge of who you really are and what you are really capable of.

Your innate happiness, health and wisdom can only guide you to make best use of your creative power, open up to possibility, generate fresh ideas and create what it is you most want to from your highest truth. Reflect on the moments you have experienced absolute joy, peace and harmony in your life and imagine what gifts reside within you that you are yet to discover. Allowing yourself to let go of limiting beliefs that cap your potential and rein in your enthusiasm will lead you to uncover your magnificent and innate abilities and as you do, you will find that they transform your understanding of how life works and your approach to creating your experience of it.

Your inner resources will not dim if things don’t go as planned, they will not disappear if you decide to stop or take a break or change direction, they will not be compromised if you have moments of doubt. They will still be available to you whether you are paying attention to them or not. Let this guide you in how and why you create. Allow your thoughts to flow, your thinking to be intentional and your feelings to rise up and out of you. You get to decide which thoughts you follow and if you don’t feel as if your thinking about them is leading you towards realisation of your innate happiness, health, joy and wholeness, let them go. You know which direction to head in.

Now you are in a state of flow and awareness, take a moment to close your eyes, get quiet within and ask yourself the questions below, writing down your answers as they arise.

How have I been using my imagination to my advantage and to my disadvantage?
What amount of time can I set aside every morning to envision my day and how can I make this a daily practice?
What do I want to use my imagination to programme myself to believe about my creative power?
Am I ready to unleash my creative potential and allow it to carry me beyond the limits I have placed on it until now?


DO THE WORK


Your awareness of your creative power is now well and truly reawakened. Now you are ready to create something that you want to exist in your life that doesn’t yet and that until now you haven’t even considered it possible to achieve. No matter your vision, once you discover the confidence to go after what you want in life and get there by playing as you create, life becomes increasingly more enjoyable and growth and transformation happen as a result. Challenge becomes opportunity and so called failed projects become stepping stones to future ones. A consciously creative mindset in one that is already successful because it knows that success is enjoyment, fun and play. Let yourself view the world through fresh eyes that see opportunities to create and tune in to your ability to be carried by inspiration and enjoy creating all that you are guided to.
