Being a “creative” I can’t help but create. I believe we were all born to create in the image of the One who created us! Even though I have a natural propensity toward creating often I stumble into patterns that shut down my creativity tendencies.
Because of this struggle to stay in a “creative space” I have learned personal criteria that is essential to nurturing my creative nature. Although the keys I am about to share with you may seem unrelated to creativity, they create the right environment for innovation to flourish. I am sharing the keys that work for me, so you can determine what works for you.
My Keys for Nurturing the Creative Within
1. Awareness that Heaven Speaks and Engage In the Conversation
The number one criteria that helps me nurture my creativity is understanding, inquiring of and remaining open to the ultimate source of creativity, who I personally refer to as God. That means being open for heavenly communication.
2. Thankfulness Leads the Way
When I am thankful I remain in an open childlike posture positioned to receive. As soon as I loose sight of all that I have to be thankful for immediately my creative reservoirs run dry. For me thankfulness is lived out in a life style of worship in all I do, be it coaching clients, attending my son’s soccer game, or emptying the trash. Through thankfulness I become an open container ready to receive creative inspiration.
3. Resist Striving
When I remain in the present I can access possibility. When I strive to control, or force things to happen I surrender grace for the present moment and time. The paradox is that sometimes I must strive to be at rest.
This criteria has been helpful in my life and many of my clients.
