I’ve never thought I was a very creative person.
I thought creativity was something that you were either born with, or that you had to work at. I didn’t seem to have been born with it ,and I didn’t seem to have the time or inclination to develop it either.
What I did make time for was yoga, and from that sprang my interest in meditation and spirituality. What I didn’t realise was that having a better relationship with your mind through meditation, releases your innate creativity.
Our creative abilities are unlimited once the mind is unhitched from the bombardment of negative thoughts that convince us that we can’t do things.
My experience is that after years of a regular practice of meditation I got the urge to write. I followed that urge and had some articles published. Then some time after taking part in a ten day intensive meditation retreat, almost from nowhere, an amazing story formed in my mind. I don’t know where it came from, but what I do know is that there was no way I could not write it down. I just started writing. Once I had started, I didn’t want to stop.
I kept going all the way to the end, amazed by the characters that leapt from my mind and their experiences. The result was my book ‘The Children of the Law of One, The Last Days of Atlantis’.
The most amazing thing for me was that this story poured out of me in a way that I would previously have thought impossible, given my belief that I was not creative.
We are all creative. We all have special, unique gifts for the world. Trust yourself; don’t take any notice of the voice in your head which tells you that you are not good enough or that you can’t do things.
Your creative talent is waiting to be unleashed to light up someone’s day, or even their life. I knew that even if no one ever read my book, it had still given me an immense sense of pleasure and achievement to write it.
Happily, some people have read it, and some of those have even told me they enjoyed it. Beyond my wildest dreams? Certainly. But I know now that our dreams are only limited by the thoughts in our heads which silence the urges of our hearts. Let your heart lead you and follow your dreams.
