Creativity Cycle and Energy Flow
Understanding the energy of change and how it moves through your energy system provides you with more power to create with grace, ease and empowerment.
The creative cycle is all about our ability to make things happen for ourselves. We create by default every day. If you are not completely happy with what you create by default, you can begin to create your life more consciously. Choose the experiences you would like to have and then put your creative cycle to work on your behalf.
Creativity and Your Chakras
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. Stillness can become fertile ground for inspired ideas.
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. Visualization of your desired result is a very useful method to engage this chakra.
The throat chakra represents your voice, higher will and choice. A helpful approach is to deeply explore your choices through clear questions brought to the stillness of meditation where you 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?”
Your solar plexus keeps you honest. This level in the creative process brings up issues of self-identity, personal courage/will and integrity. You can ask yourself: “Is this in keeping with who I am? Does it fit me? What fear must I face and release to move forward?”
You may encounter emotional blocks and/or unconscious beliefs at any stage of creativity but they are particularly apparent 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. The recorded programs Balancing Your Chakras and Guided Chakra Meditations are designed to help clear your emotional blocks and unconscious beliefs.You can read more about them here: http://bit.ly/2rIPCAo
Useful questions that relate to creativity and the sacral chakra are: “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 move into action. 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?” Practicing grounding methods can help steady your system and build the necessary vitality to implement you plan.
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 in tune with what you desire.
