You and I touched this topic a few days ago. When you are actively engaged in the creation of something, your whole being goes into that activity, particularly when you create from a space of joy. Mind, body, spirit, emotion – they all come together and get focused on whatever it is you are creating. This act grounds you in the moment. There is no past or future when you’re wholly into the creation.
When was the last time you engaged in something that allowed you to be that focused while still having fun?
Hematite comes today to clear your field and hold space for you to sit with creation – even if it’s not today, give yourself a few minutes to schedule an hour or so into your calendar for some creative outlet. And make that commitment to yourself sometime in the next seven days.
If you want to finally achieve balance within this crazy, chaotic world, you absolutely need to do something that feeds your soul. For me, I love engaging in the arts as I put on some music and sing or play along. For you, you could try taking a notebook to a lovely cafe or library and write a short bit. Go to the nearest beach and create a sand castle while soaking in some natural sunlight. Get all your senses involved too. Cook a meal from scratch and then share that with others – what better way to get each of your senses engaged?
Regardless of how or what you create, set the stage for yourself and allow yourself to create from a space of joy and happiness. Many artists of the past and present will readily attest to losing themselves in time and space when they’re deep in creation mode. The arts allow individuals to share pieces of themselves for the world to see in the creation of their pieces. ArtLifting helps artists who could use some support as they take back their lives into their own hands and spread beauty into the rest of the world, in spite of their own troubled backgrounds.
How will you honor your creative side today, or in the next few days? Please share.
