Do you think creativity is something only artists can use? This is a belief many people have and it hinders their life at a spiritual level.
When you develop a relationship to the divine you’re using your personal voice, the essence of your soul, to have a profound connection to the universe.
Everything is connected, but in that connection, we don’t lose our individuality. Creativity helps us to assert our individual selves as part of the greater whole through self-expression.
Here’s how to identify your creative spark and use it to grow in your spiritual awakening.
You Don’t Just Follow Destiny, You Create It
Your voice is important because it’s the language of your soul. It’s how you communicate your intent to manifest and expand the universe.
You fill the space and push the boundaries of what’s possible through your creativity.
However, you may have chosen to let your voice be ambiguous. People enable clarity in their voice through traditional self-expression in art. They assert that their mind is unique and they can change the universe with those thoughts. That’s only level one when it comes to creativity.
When I say voice I don’t mean your literal spoken voice and when I say self-expression I don’t mean only creativity like art and writing. So no, you don’t have to be an artist to be creative. It’s not even the most refined and advanced method of creativity!
Creativity is about novelty. Every independent thought you have (which isn’t a simple reaction or emulation of something in your environment) asserts that you’re a distinct and unique being.
That means recognizing your thoughts are powerful because they come from you is fundamental to manifestation. It creates something from nothing. It uses free will to affect the universe beyond a sequence of cause and effect.
You aren’t actually a god or the origin of all there is, but free will can feel like it sometimes.
Tapping Into Source Energy
As long as you aren’t defying the laws of the universe, you can manifest pretty much anything you want. No, you can’t manifest a unicorn in your living room tomorrow, but you can manifest fortune by attracting the novel cause-and-effect sequence that permits it.
Your connection to the universe is best explored through the novelties of your mind. That’s because it untethers you from your current physical reality and allows you to have an abundant perspective.
The universe created everything as well as the tools you have at your disposal to create more things. However, your voice becomes ambiguous when you trap yourself in physical attachments.
These attachments affect you on a spiritual level. You become stuck in a cause-and-effect sequence and surrender your free will in the process.
That’s why tapping into source energy occurs through spiritual practices. Even the more ritualistic practices, like meditation, train you to see beyond your physical reality.
How? Radical mindfulness. Being present in the moment means you aren’t simply reacting or emulating something in your environment. You’re existing on purpose and directed to do so by your higher self.
This has been a lot of woo-woo language, so let me summarize the point so far: you’re an individual with free will. Part of your free will is free thinking. That free thinking only occurs when you separate the mechanics of living from the possibilities.
A rock doesn’t see possibility, it only sees reaction through cause and effect it has no real control over. But you, a living being with a more advanced soul, can break free from the mechanics of cause and effect and become the architect of your own destiny.
The Power of Creation
Alright, so how do you use this spiritual gateway of free will effectively? Yes, you can create art and other traditionally creative things, but let’s get spiritual here for a moment on a pragmatic level.
Self-expression is all about vision and the dreams we have for ourselves that don’t exist in reality. They have to be manifested.
These dreams are also rarely the endgame of whatever cause-and-effect cycle we’re originally in. A person who dreams of being a doctor in America isn’t going to stumble into the profession if they’re a refugee in a wartorn country. Their current endgame is much less promising unless that person acts on their vision and manifests it.
Things in their life have to change for that vision to be possible, let alone probable. Even if a foreign country swooped in and relocated them, the person would still need to decide to become a doctor and do the long, hard work to manifest it using the educational tools that are available in society.
Your self-expression is about rearranging the pieces of your life to create a new narrative. Yes, you can create fictional narratives in art, but you can also create new life narratives in your mind and then craft that vision into reality through manifestation.
The Law of Attraction is something you’ve probably heard about before, but the way it happens is you attract the tools or situations that make your goal possible.
So let’s end with a little creative exercise.
Make Your Vision
We’re going to do a visualization. Find a comfortable spot when you’re done reading this article. Turn on music or nature sounds if you want. Take deep, calming breaths until your body is at ease.
Then, visualize in your mind like a daydream something you want. It can be anything. Be specific in that vision. If you want a particular career, imagine what an average day would be like, what you would wear, and who you would meet.
After you have this vision strongly in mind, write it down and then list at least three tools you would need to make it possible. Perhaps that career requires specific training, becoming a better public speaker, and living in a bigger city.
Those tools are how you’re going to manifest your spiritually created vision into reality. This is the power of your individuality. You know what you want and you know what tools you need, just like any artist.
So now attract those tools to you by changing your life narrative and entering into a new cause-and-effect sequence.
