Chakras, Creativity and Energy Flow
Consciously embracing how energy moves through our systems related to the creative process lifts us out of old default patterns that bring stress, conflict and lots of what we don’t want. Deeper awareness of ourselves, our true feelings, desires and willingness to commit allow us to create our lives more consciously.
Chakras, Creativity and Inspiration: The Journey Begins
The creative cycle begins at the crown chakra with an idea or an inspiration. Sitting in a quiet meditation is an effective way to begin to focus your creative energy.
Once you have an idea, it begins to take shape within the energy of the brow chakra. You might find yourself gathering data or doing some research.
The throat chakra represents your voice. You make choices here. You can further explore your choices, ask questions and listen to the answers. You can use your voice and will to proceed. Ask yourself: “Is this a choice I want to make?”
Your heart chakra is about unconditional love and wisdom. You may feel an overall intuitive sense for the creative process and your end goal. Ask yourself: “What is my heartfelt sense of this idea?” “Do I have the passion for it?”
Chakras, Creativity and Clarity
Your solar plexus keeps you honest. This level in the creative process brings up issues of self-identity and integrity. You can ask yourself: “Is this in keeping with who I am? Does it fit me?”
You may encounter emotional blocks and/or unconscious beliefs at the next stage as you progress to your sacral chakra. At this stage you check in about your passion. You may also wonder about whether or not you even deserve what you are intending to create. Questions of entitlement may also come up. You can use the Living Energy tools and techniques to clear your emotional blocks and unconscious beliefs. Ask yourself: “Do I have passion for this? Do I deserve it?”
Once you reach the root chakra, you should be ready to implement your plan. At this stage you need to plan, gather materials and just do it. Physical energy and issues around grounding may emerge here. Ask yourself: “Do I want to bring this to life? Do I have vitality for it? Will this add to my well-being?”
Chakras, Creativity, Timing and Ease
Being aware of the totality of the creative process, as well as each stage and how to navigate it, will help you live more consciously and in tune with what you desire. The more you tune into timing and consciously work with the natural cycles of creativity and change, the more relaxed you will feel as you pursue your goals and manage change.
