We are all artists as well as being 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. The question is: Do we have the courage, audacity, and soulful confidence to say “yes” to the seductive ideas coursing through our minds eye, waking us in the night, and knocking on the doors of our heart in synchronistic moments throughout our days?
All artful undertakings mirror the connection between the realms of the seen and unseen within the creator. Creativity brings a rapture, an ecstasy and jubilation to our lives. It 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 give space for it to awaken within, our soul is invigorated.
In Hellinger’s book Rising To Love (2008), he writes,
“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.”
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.”
Emily Blefeld, LICSW and Michelle Bias, MA welcome you and your ideas to join them for an immersion into the heart of creativity. Together in community with others, we will harness our creative lifeforce to weave the threads of magic into our creative projects while awakening our capacity to co-create with our guides and the ideas seeking us.
