Honoring the Creative: A Vital Connection to Health
We all have an inherent, creative capacity. It shows up in ways far beyond painting and drawing. But surfacing our creative energies may not be a priority on everyone’s agenda. What is certain, however, is that when we connect with our internal creative nature, we are more fully expressing our authentic selves. We are more balanced. Ideas emerge. We see the world differently. We can imagine possibilities. The key is to focus and develop these latent ideas, thoughts, and talents.
There is a distinction between living a fully creative life and becoming an artist. The deciding factor in who becomes an artist is related to discipline and practice – the amount of time we invest in ourselves, listening to and honoring the call. For those who say they don’t have a creative bone in their body, they may just be confused about how to notice subtle, intuitive, and creative energies, or they may dismiss those energies completely.
The challenge is to tap into the depth of who you are and find your unique creative expression. While meditation and experiencing a deep spiritual calling can serve this purpose, art is a fun way to wake up those dormant energies. It can connect you to the divine that resides inside each of us and can guide us in our practices. If nothing else, it just feels good to be immersed and surrounded by color, beauty, texture, and good music – all the ways that art may touch you.
