We were all born with limitless resources of creativity that flows from all of us when we least expect it. It comes when we’re relaxed and at ease. If you live a low-stress lifestyle then you will experience copious amounts of creative genius and if you have a way of effortlessly capturing some of these creative brain waves then you might possibly be able to help solve some of the world’s ills.
Of course you probably already recognize the biggest obstacle in that most of us live in chronic high-stress situations. We strive and push ourselves harder and harder to get further and further ahead of the pack. We have a perceived pinnacle that we’re determined to reach and we are constantly plodding to conquer our next competitor.
This may or may not be a phase in your life. Many people find constant satisfaction in the thrill of chasing the more and the better in hot pursuit of ultimate perfection, which we inherently know can only be reached in our imaginations.
There is another way but you may not like to face the reality of it just yet. Trust me, that in due time you will ultimately find your inner – wisdom and endure a journey to reach your true level of constant creativity. It will be reached when you stop trying and striving to obtain material things.
Creativity is your birthright. It is your constant companion, It is always there keeping you safe and helping you to make your day to day decisions based on your hopes and dreams. You are using it all the time to guide your life and your decisions.
Tapping into this bottomless reservoir is as simple as removing the top off a boiling pot to release the steam. It is a decision to take control of your life and break free from your pre-conditioned expectations that were placed on you by your parents, your teachers, your friends and your society.
Only you know what you need to do in order to take the first steps in removing some of the pressure you’ve been harbouring. Some question you could ask yourself are:
- Why do I feel so compelled to hold onto my current way of life?
- What is so compelling about my current stress that I feel such a need to hang on to it so desperately?
- Do I think I don’t have a choice in this matter?
- Am I the only one that can carry this load?
- When do I think I might be in a different situation?
- How would I feel if I could release some of my current stress?
This is an example of creative questioning which is all a part of increasing ones ability to self-solve some of our own self-created situations.
I sincerely hope that by sharing some of my personal thoughts and strategies it will help more people to regain their relationship to their internal constant companion…
