Creating comes from much more than just one’s hands, though that is the way most feel is the be-all-end-all of creativity. That could not be further from the truth as we all have our own ways and methods of creating and one of those is creating through the mind. The mind is so powerful that it creates your moods. It creates your days, weeks, months, years, lifetimes. It makes new generations. It gives birth to new discoveries. It creates sidewalks, highways, neighborhoods, cities, states, countries. It is ever curious and will lead you down multiple roads of wisdom.

“Creativity is seeing something that does not exist already …. “ – Michael Shea

Every day, we wake up with 24 new hours. We are constantly blessed with this day, these hours and we have the power to make each moment count – and in a negative or positive way – it’s up to us, in our minds, to create that. Whatever thoughts we create towards the day is exactly the way it will be lived.

“There’s nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.” – B Fuller

To create is to BE. Just because you know, and I know and they know that you are on your way to becoming something great, does not mean you have to stop and tell people that you are on your way. Or that they are going to witness a masterpiece that is you unfold. Self-Confidence and such is always fine to a point, but never go overboard and cross the line. Let others see the outcome of your creativity without being walked through the process step by step.

“Words Create Action” – Renee Avard (keep an eye out for this endeavor to start)

Inside your mind there are many thoughts tumbling around. I am going to show my age here, but it is spinning the wheel on Wheel of Fortune when you unleash what you create. You turn that wheel with full knowledge there are negative things on the board such as skip a turn or bankruptcy, but still, you turn, for the hope is worth the risk. That is the way it is with the thoughts. Every day we give ourselves that gift of hope and it is up to us how we share that to the world: Good or Not-So-Good?

“A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn …. “ – Charles Brower

You have to be prepared for anything when you unleash your project out into the world. There will always be someone, somewhere who is going to have a problem with it, so the best rule of thumb is to please the only person whose opinion matters at all – and that is yourself. Creation with the mind is taking that art and knowing what to leave out and what to add. And if the above quote teaches us anything, it is to be prepared to have your creation withstand the naysayers as well as accentuating the positive.

“Creativity is the quality you bring to the activity you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach, how you at things … “ – Osho

So bring in the quality that helps keep the world turning. CREATE.

When did you first feel the pull to create?
What was the first thing you remember making with intention?
A castle, crafted together with playdoh
A path to ride your bicycle through
A new song, made up as you played with your friends

When did you realize that in order to thrive you needed to create?
Was it in middle school when you scribbled late into the night in the notebook you tucked under your bed?
Or did this pull come to you later in life, when you realized how much happiness it brought you?When did you know that you were born to craft your own path?
When did you start seeking out others who held this common belief that creating was as necessary as breathing?
When did you first begin?

There is a deep pull with us to make something
To see the fruits of our labor unfold before our eyes
A meal cooked
A poem written
A house built
A family tended to

All of these things require love, intention, and an open heart to see what will unfold
When we create we open up to possibility
We may plan for something to go one way, but
There are always sharp turns, moments when we take a step off course
And unexpected surprises that take us on new journey’s

Remember
A blank page is a new opportunity
An unfinished book is a chance to write a new ending
A paint brush can help you uncover your future
And you are never to old or to young to begin again

You hold the power to craft your future
You can create the life you are most meant to live
Continue seeking
Dreaming
And unearthing the truths that are living in your heart

When you are surrounded by those who believe in you
You believe more in yourself
And create beauty

These are the people we laugh with, celebrate with, experience the good with and of course go through the…”learning opportunities” life gives us too.  When the tables are turned, you feel their experience just as fully, if not more! It’s so […]

January, and New Years Day in particular, is synonymous with New Years resolutions, a time to throw out the old and welcome the new, a time to set new goals, to start off on the right foot, to change old habits that do not serve us anymore. That just sounds to me like a whole lot […]
