Creativity

Aug 26, 05:30 PM

I’ve been writing a blog for over 10 years! Mostly about my connection with spirit and nature, two things I can not live my daily life without. Usually I write about how I meet these places, or how the 3 of us meet together in ritual and daily celebrations. Often I refer to old ancestral practices I’ve learned in order to remember our deep blood connection with nature and spirit. Although this is still a major part of my life, I’ve been thinking more and more about where creativity comes in to all of this in my own life. I believe all these ancient ancestral practices of connection and belonging actually ignite our creative juices and that is actually the point of it. The point of ritual isn’t ritual, it’s to release or enhance or ignite something in relationship to spiritual forces. To make change happen. We use our creativity to make it real, to make the ritual work. With a reconnection to our own innate creativity we can begin to dream a new dream for the earth, and not just dream it, but actually create it. Dreaming is the first step though.

So I want to begin a new journey of writing about creativity. Because creativity is the key.

Firstly, everyone is creative. If you’re not creative you’re a zombie or a robot or something of that sort. Otherwise, you’re creative. I never thought I was. I remember as a child grown ups would tell me I was so creative and I NEVER felt that. I thought I was the least creative person around. Looking back, I see that I was indeed very creative, but I only saw my insecurities and where I was lacking. And in my own wounded heart, I was lacking so very much, that even if I was creative I didn’t deserve to acknowledge it. So I punished myself by denying and suppressing my creativity. Many many hard decades later, I have been able to unravel those restricting beliefs and start to see and admit and even embrace and celebrate my creativity. Dare I say, if I can do it, anyone can? I’m really not sure if there’s any deeper point to life than to create and relate within the field of love. If we can love and create and relate, I think we’ve maybe mastered life? And oh my does the world need more of that!

So as I embark on this new journey of exploring my creative path through the blog form, I hope you will join me. I hope I might inspire, refresh, uplift some of you into your own creative dreaming and action. And together we can dream and create a new earth together.
