Do you know?

This man’s blog inspires me daily. 🙂

Success Inspirers' World

Do you know?
That if you continue
To do things
The way you do them now,
You will remain
As you are now?
That is a fact
Which many may not know;
And which
Everyone ought to know.
Nothing will change
In your life,
Unless
You change your ways;
New ways,
New results;
Old ways,
Old results;
Same ways,
Same results.
That is a law of life.

Daily OM 072018

I so long to be creative.  Methinks that’s why I started this wee blog many years ago. 

But things get in the way of the creativity.  Life has this nasty habit of punching one in the face when least expected. 

Still I carry on – day by day.  Perhaps the beautiful garden I have created outside is the true reflection of my creativity.  🙂  🙂  🙂  

 

How Fear Blocks Creativity

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

When we feel safe, our creativity unfolds like a beautiful flower.

To understand how fear blocks creativity, take a moment to imagine yourself telling a story. First, imagine telling the story to someone you love and who loves you. You probably feel warmth and energy as you fill in the details of your tale to your friend’s delight. Now, imagine telling the same story to someone who, for whatever reason, makes you uncomfortable. The wonderful twists and turns, the fine points and colorful images that unfolded in your mind for your friend probably won’t present themselves. Instead of warmth, energy, and creativity, you will probably feel opposite sensations and a desire to close down. When we feel unsafe, whether we fear being judged, disliked, or misunderstood, our creative flow stops. Alternately, when we feel safe, our creativity unfolds like a beautiful flower, without conscious effort.

Knowing this, we can maximize our creative potential by creating the conditions that inspire our creativity. In order to really be in the flow, we need to feel safe and unrestricted. However, achieving this is not as simple as avoiding people who make us feel uncomfortable. Sometimes we can be alone in a room and still feel totally blocked. When this happens, we know we have come up against elements in our own psyches that are making us feel fearful. Perhaps we are afraid that in expressing ourselves we will discover something we don’t want to know, or unleash emotions or ideas that we don’t want to be responsible for. Or maybe we’re afraid we’ll fail to produce something worthy.

When you’re up against fear, internal or external, ritual can be a powerful–and creative–antidote. Before you sit down to be creative, try casting a circle of protection around yourself. Visualize yourself inside a ring of light, protective fire, or angels. Imagine that this protective energy emanates unconditional love for you and wants to hear, see, and feel everything you have to express. Take a moment to bathe in the warmth of this feeling and then fearlessly surrender yourself to the power that flows through you.

Our Back yard in Southern New England

Stunning yard.

We all can dream of a yard like this 🙂

How lucky are we

To have captured

For all eyes to see

Still water,

Mirrored glass

Reflecting a vibrant sky.

Diversified deep blues

Interwoven amongst

Tumescent white clouds.

A natural artist canvas,

Picture framed by

Rolling mountains of

A multitude of

Various lush flourishing

Green trees

Rising above a youthful

Legion spread of a

Multitude of sprouting

plants and a sand colored

shoreline.

No matter

Where we roam,

Countryside in NH

Holds ones heart and

Forevermore, remains

The only place known,

As roots of origin,

That inherent place

Best described as

Our cherished home.

❤️🌎❤️

Kind Regards and hugs – K
