I’ve heard people say that they’re not creative. I would have to disagree with that statement. If you believe that you’re a spiritual being in a physical body, then you are creative in some way.
You may not write a bestseller, compose a beautiful symphony, or paint a single picture in your lifetime. However, we have a spark of divinity within us, and the divine is the creative force in the universe. Therefore, it is only natural for that creative spark of divinity to express itself through us.
What would happen if musicians stopped following their soul’s urge to create? What would’ve happened if scientists like Albert Einstein kept their ideas to themselves? What would your life be like if you didn’t have a hand in creating it? Now, let’s go out there and create something amazing.
What does it really mean to have a healthy sense of self-love? It requires us to give ourselves a break when we make mistakes. After, mistakes are simply opportunities for learning and growth.
When we love and value ourselves, we are more likely to follow our hearts instead of our endless lists of fears, excuses, and self-doubt. When we learn to love ourselves more, we stop taking action from a place of obligation.
Lastly, when we become more loving and compassionate toward ourselves, it becomes easier to see the divinity in everything. We become happier and more peaceful. How can you love and value yourself even more today than you did yesterday?
Just be yourself. That’s great advice, but how can we do that in a society where we are expected to follow the so-called acceptable way of doing things? Also, why would we even want to be completely authentic if it’s so darn hard and unpopular?
When we are truly authentic, we are allowing ourselves to be guided by the divine. When we make heart-centered decisions and live divinely inspired lives, we are not allowing the fearful, judgmental, and often self-depracating ego make our decisions for us.
When we honor the divine spark within us, we have more of our soul’s energy to use for manifesting abundance into our lives, discovering and living our soul’s purpose, and creative expression.
Also, we begin to have more compassion and empathy for ourselves and others. When we become our authentic selves, we finally get to take off our masks and truly live in integrity.
In both the spiritual and self-help communities, we are encouraged to take inspired action. What does that really mean, and how, exactly, are we supposed to do that? Where does this inspiration even come from?
For example, when I began this blog, I researched topics and added a few of my insights along the way. In other words, I was taking action, but I was not writing from the heart. This is where our inspiration comes from. True inspiration can also come from our spirit guides, angels, or any other source that connects you to the divine.
If you want to know whether your desire to take action on something in your life is coming from a place of inspiration, ask yourself this question. Is this coming from a place of love, or is it coming from a place of fear, guilt, or obligation?
