A very basic description by Michael Beckwith: "center yourself through meditation or contemplative prayer in which you commune with the Ineffable, activating a field of unconditional love. Once your consciousness is open and receptive, you place questions before your higher Self".
We are all creatives. It matters not whether you are in a creative field - a writer, painter, performer, etc. - you are a creative being because you live in a creative Universe of a Creative Power using a creative law or Principle (Cause and Effect) to bring experiences into your life. One of the things that gets in our way is a lack of the act of forgiveness, of self or others. You might have read in my previous post, from the New Thought Guy blog, about forgiveness and its effects on our bodies, minds, and spirits. It is essential to learn forgiveness, sometimes radical forgiveness, in order to move on into our greatness. I invite you to join me in this...
Martha Graham wrote a now famous letter to Agnes DeMille that I would like to partly quote:
"There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.
And If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable it is, nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly to keep the channel open....
You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate YOU.
Keep the channel open."
Now ask yourself these questions. And close your eyes and let Spirit, Source, God, Charlie, whatever you may call that Power which is the Allness of the Universe, speak to you in the silence.
1. What is it that you want to open your mind to create?
2. What can you do to unfold your heart in order to create your greatest good?
3. What makes you cringe and seems to prevent you from creating that great life you envision?
Let the answers show up, swirl around your consciousness, and inform you.
Vision your best life, your optimized life, your life of vitality, prosperity, significance, and love! There is a power for Good in the Universe and you get to use it. Use it Now!
Love Only! Forgive Everything! Remember Who You Are!
