You are the only one powerful enough to stop you. So, what is stopping you from expressing yourself fully, from creating everything you desire, and from being you? I’ll give you one guess.
Does that mean you are consciously sabotaging yourself? No, not at all, but what we have found is that we all have these unconscious things going on that end up sapping our creativity and squelching our projects.
Here are 5 tips to stop stopping you and to unleash your creativity:
1: Stop judging yourself as wrong
Every judgment defines you and stops positive energy and opportunities from flowing into your world. Every time you judge yourself negatively or harshly it’s like putting the brakes on whatever you’re trying to create in your life. Every time you think something isn’t working or you would like to make yourself wrong, instead ask, “How does it get any better than this?”
2: Tune in to your body’s wisdom
You are an infinite being of energy; your physical body is the conductor of your life force. To experience the truth of this, try the following: Close your eyes and take some deep breaths in. Feel into the outside edges of you (not the outside edges of your body). It will most likely sit outside your physical self. Can you expand to fill the room you’re in? Your home? Your whole suburb? The city? The whole earth? When your energy can be that big in the world, your self-judgment or the judgement of others, has little ability to impact you.
3: Combatting the stress response
Every day, practice saying: All of life comes to me with ease, joy and glory. Say it 10 times every morning when you wake and 10 times every evening before bed. When you’ve programmed a belief like this into your system through daily repetition, you can call on it to shift your energy when you find yourself in a state of stress or fear.
4: Fear and excitement feel the same
Fear and excitement feel very similar in the body. People often interpret excitement as fear and rob themselves of growth promoting and invigorating experiences. Learn to do the opposite. Start asking is this fear or excitement, to start breaking the conditioning of where you interpret fear as excitement. This way you can start to reframe your perspective to see how exciting and invigorating it will be to go on that date, speak publicly or whatever it is you’re wanting to achieve.
5: Learn how to be flexible with your point of view
Your point of view creates your reality so if you think life is stressful, you’ll only see the stresses in life. If you think no one listens to you, or no one will buy your stuff, you’re right. When you take a fixed point of view, it narrows your vision and you only see what you have already decided. If you can loosen your fixed perspective and allow for alternative points of view to be true, you will create new possibilities for yourself and your life. One way to do this is to ask, “What else is possible here that I haven’t considered?”
These tips may seem simple. They are, but so is creation. The more I use these tips and play with them as blocks and challenges come up, creation gets easier and faster. And I have seen this show up in others as they use these tips. So, I invite you to play with them and see what you can create.
