HOW TO GAIN THE CREATIVE CONFIDENCE TO GO AFTER YOUR DREAMS

Posted By creativeextraordinaire on Creative Lifestyle

https://www.creativeextraordinaire.com - The reason I am so adamant about helping aspiring creative entrepreneurs in particular aside from having been one myself is that I understand the intricacies that come from and with creating; that there is a conceptual process that isn’t necessarily logical, linear or quantifiable and that requires authenticity and persistence that we somehow all abide by in our own unique ways. The lie that is too often believed is that some people are creative and some are not, or worse people who are afraid to express themselves for fear of ridicule, judgement or rejection. We have no control over what other people think of us or decide to do to us but we can choose authenticity and freedom of the mind over fear. This is an encouraging message for all creatives out there who are afraid to dream, afraid to be; nothing should transcend our ability to create, it is intrinsic to our well-being.

The creative quest is such an inviting endeavor that introduces us to a greater version of ourselves and in doing so allows us to share our inmost vision and to walk the path of the unknown in confidence. We elevate our consciousness as we surrender our minds to the possibility of inspiration. However, inspiration is a very sensitive being, she lives in the whimsical realm undisturbed, she is also a capricious creature that might take a while to unveil herself to our reality, so what do we do then? We adopt unpredictability as the new norm, the new order, the only order really because as much as we like to control and plan our lives nothing turns out as expected, unexpected twists and turns await us along the way; we inevitably we hit roadblocks and dead ends. However, we have to keep this in mind, that we are fully equipped for the journey ahead; we have to agree with ourselves and rest in the fact that we are not here by accident. It will not be easy or fair, Life’s journey is not linear, it’s more like scrambled with all sorts of mixed signals that sometimes lead to confusion and pain but nonetheless awakens us to the process of evolving into who you are meant to be. On the journey failure, disappointments will hold us down, adversity, the furnace of change will distort the view we have of our own worthiness; this journey to success is costly so let’s commit to the work, to the process of becoming. This is a call open to the curious soul willing to embrace uncertainty, avoid clichés and labels. Translate your ideas into workable, enjoyable forms of art beneficial to all who seek it. Be of service. Let the art of creation, the design of your artistic mind carve your life, through the expression of deep beliefs rooted in the mundane miracle of life. Showcase your uniqueness, ignore the lure of pragmatism and find your meaning in the chaotic routine and demands of society; you owe it to your Creator to bring forth something of worth. Be fluent in the language of mystery, embrace your individuality wholeheartedly, stay with the questions, ignore your fears, educate your mind, feed your soul, live life on your own terms; and remember to heed the nudges, the little whispers your intuition leading you to where you have always known that you are supposed to be. Every great inventor was once an amateur, an apprentice so be patient with yourself, and honor your creative space as a place of meaning and purpose, a way of honoring your Maker by fulfilling your calling. In the echoing of the soul, quiet the ego which has no place in your creative pursuits, don’t linger so much with expectations that when the time your dreams are about to manifest you are too exhausted to appreciate or even recognize them. We are too often handicapped by logic, realism, shunning mysticism, spirituality failing to acknowledge that the creative act is nothing short of divine nature. Stop questioning your potential and embrace the constraints that are needed in the field of creative thinking, and whatever you do, don’t lose the wonder, the childlike spirit, the joy attached to the act of creating something of substance, in genuine and sweet abandon manifest the gifting’s that are on the inside of you. As Emerson eloquently puts it: "become an outlet to all there is in God; release your confined brilliance, by awakening to the transformative process which comes naturally when we do the inside job." So what are you going to create? I am eager to know… Do you agree with the overall message that I have shared? In what areas do you struggle most in regards to your creativity?
