Don’t Give Up! Gain Creative Confidence ~Achieve that Dream!
What are you inspired to create in your life? Where are you inspired to travel?
When we dare to begin consciously creating — writing a book, choreographing a dance, painting a canvas, drawing a picture, your home or yard, crafting a recipe, building a business, planning a trip, or designing our lives — we face the pure vulnerability of our tender creative essence. We begin asking the creative expression tough killer questions before we’ve barely begun: “Is this any good?” “Will people like it?” “Why is this taking so long?” “Am I wasting my time?”
Creativity requires tenderness to flourish. It needs to be held as a pregnant woman drapes her arm over her belly, protectively. It needs to be guarded like the tender shoots of garden plants, keeping them out of harm’s way until they are strong enough to produce fruit.
Conscious creation and expressing creativity requires opening to the flow of creative essence energy, then allowing it to move through us into the world of form. This right brain activity needs space and time to take shape, before the left brain “editor, adjuster, corrector” tries to make it presentable to the world.
Yes, as we gain mastery in a certain creative expression we’ll have failed attempts. We must expect them, welcome them even, in order to hold our creative essence with the tenderness it requires for full development. Imagine telling a toddler each time it stood up to walk, “You’re not very good at that. You need to stop.” How long would it be before the child stopped trying?
A woman I knew showed her friend of many years her first attempts at writing. Her friend told her it wasn’t very good and she didn’t feel she was a writer. The woman never wrote another word.
How different her life might have been with a few tender words of encouragement whispered in her ear, “Keep going.”
The creative spirit inside each of us longs to fully express. When it’s brave enough to take its first or next tender steps, here are three things to help it along:
