Creativity to Spark Your Soul and Source Your Movement
“Everything is in movement, in a creative movement. Behind this a power is at work, something that is inexhaustibly creative, boundlessly creative. This is the real power. When we become empty inside, we finally come into touch with our true cause, with our source. It is this creative power. This source is not our own. It is the source of every single one of us, and of the world as a whole.”
– Bert Hellinger, Rising in Love
“You wander from room to room hunting for the diamond necklace that is already around your neck.” ~Rumi
There comes a point in life when “Please see me” is no longer the plea, and “Here I am” becomes the stance. When another’s approval no longer has a grip on your heart. When another’s blessing to exist, to take up space, or to shine bright, although appreciated, is no longer your desire or purpose. When the essence of your being and the need to express has more weight than the perseveration around how you will be received. When “I am” is enough and through that space of simply being, seeing happens from within.
“The façade has dropped. The over compensatory strategies are done. What you see or don’t see is no longer my business. I’m gripping for the edge of my life and crawling back into form. I am here. I exist. I show up and life breathes me to return anew. I root. I rise. I bring myself forward. If you meet me, I’ll be here. And if you don’t, I’ll be okay.”
So many clients come to work with us at “Seeing with Your Heart” to be seen, to be heard, to be known, to feel loved and through intergenerational systemic process, to release blocks that are in their way. As the work unfolds, the field of consciousness opens, and ancestral entanglements release, love is restored and the movement “here I am” finds its posture. Within a matter of moments, hours, or days, they find a rush of energy and soulful spark awakening within their bodies.
We have come to understand that this energetic currency is creativity, a force that may lay dormant ready to be ignited in any place at any time. We are born with creative life force that holds the exact ingredients to fertilize, tend, and grow the seeds that only our soul can water and only the conditions of our life can bring to flower. Each one of us, whether we are awake to it or not, have creative ideas, projects, or initiatives that seek to be realized in and through us. Too often, fear and conditioning stand in our way.
“I believed creativity was hiding from me. Keeping itself from me. The more accurate truth was that I was blocking my creativity because my life experiences with others told me I wasn’t good enough or worthy enough to be creative. I had hidden loyalties through my family system that unconsciously told me I was not allowed.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic, amplifies this idea:
“Creativity is a force of enchantment, a creative process that is both magical and magic… Our planet is inhabited not only by animals, and plants, and bacteria, and viruses, but also by ideas. Ideas are a disembodied energetic life form. They are completely separate from us but capable of interacting with us, albeit strangely. Ideas have no material body, but they do have consciousness and they most certainly have will. Ideas are driven by a single impulse: to be made manifest. And the only way an idea can be made manifest in our world is through collaboration with a human partner. It is only through a human’s efforts that an idea can be escorted out of the ether and into the realm of the actual.”
All artful undertakings mirror the connection between the realms of the seen and unseen within the creator. We are all artists as well as works of art. We are creator and creation. Whether we are crafting a program, wildcrafting herbal medicine, writing a book, telling a story, navigating a canvas or exploring the landscape of the heart, we are a portal, conduit, and incarnate collaborator with and for our greater muse. We must ask ourselves, do I have the courage, audacity, and soulful confidence to say “yes” to the seductive ideas coursing through my imagination, waking me in the night, and knocking on the doors of my heart in synchronistic moments throughout my days?
Expressing creativity allows us to communicate with our playful spirit, wild essence, and source self. Like being in love, creative living spreads through our entire being. We recognize it; we seek it. And when we free it to awaken within, our soul is invigorated.
Michelle Bias, MA and Emily Blefeld, LICSW, facilitators of this free workshop and 6-week online course, challenge limiting beliefs and explore hidden loyalties while supporting one another to stoke creativity and spark soulful movement. They know first-hand the fear of what might happen to creative art that is exposed to the larger world, and the desire to keep it safe in the smaller frames. They have wrestled with feeling a lack of permission to use their voice and a fear that if they did, they would lose their belonging.
They have discovered that if they want to truly bring their creative life force forward into its fullest form, they need to explore the systemic entanglements that stand in their way. After looking deeply at unconscious loyalties in a myriad of ways, they have found new avenues and resources for meeting themselves in the spheres of inspiration and harvesting the blessings that have awaited them.
Whether you are a seasoned artist or just beginning, you will be in good company and perhaps there will be something within our creative circle that will speak to you and your ideas.
We hope you will join us for a free workshop on Creativity to Spark Your Soul and Source Your Movement on 9/24 from 12-2pm Eastern.
Not able to attend the workshop? The recording will be provided to all who register.
