We were all born with a great deal of creativity. However, too often this birthright has been dampened or discouraged by teachers and/or parents who are unaware, or by the demands of our culture or our careers, or our own beliefs that we are not creative or artistic.
Well, that is just not true! Our creativity stays cocooned deep inside of us, just waiting for the opportunity to awaken and fulfill its promise, its potential.
Take the first step and let it fulfill your daily life!
Here are four ways to begin to increase your creativity.
- Increase your awareness: Explore the beauty, diversity, colors, architectural designs, and shapes which surround you in nature. When you are curious and open to receive, you’ll notice that great ideas come flooding in!
- Listen to your intuition: This special gift is always trying to guide you toward finding and fulfilling your passion. Learn to recognize the signals in your body that are guiding you toward the truth for your life.
- Create a sacred relaxation practice: When your critical, conscious mind is at rest, it is easier to achieve your creative capacity. So, meditate, take long walks, soak in a tub, hike, dance, listen to music, or work in your garden. Give your unconscious mind permission to tap into your own vast, inner source of creativity.
- Cultivate your creativity: Start exploring areas or ideas which interest you. Learn to discern what excites you, what is calling you, and follow it. Explore painting, drawing photography, card making, writing, fabric design or dancing. Just take the first step!
