Answering the Call to Create

How to be creative againOne would think answering the call to create is as simple as 1-2-3:

1. Feel the urge.
2. Grab some supplies.
3. Go create.
Right?

Sometimes. But I know all too well it's not always as easy as it sounds. If you're anything like me, you may easily wake up one day with a nine-hour-YouTube-marathon hangover, knee deep in supplies you now feel guilty for buying because you still don’t know what the heck to do with any of it. And even if you did, you know it’ll never turn out the way she did it. Ugh, and let’s not even mention that huge pile of laundry still sitting in the corner and the dirty dishes in the sink. How do those artists make it look so easy??

Let’s face it - that deep yearning inside that’s pulling you feels so bright and promising and invigorating, but it can be confusing and frustrating as hell.

There’s two things that I know for sure:

Yes, You ARE Creative.
And you’re feeling that urge for a reason.

Because here’s the deal: In order to create or express yourself freely and authentically, it needs to come from an authentic place. From within.

Beautiful, you are so much more than you realize. Your Creative Soul is calling you back home.

Life can be harsh. But I want you to know that you always have the most beautiful, knowing, loving guide within you. Your Soul, full of infinite wisdom and creativity, patiently waits for you to come back home and nurture the flames.

So why does it feel so damn hard? And why do we keep getting in our own way?

Because your mind is the one running the show, and it's scared to let go. Our minds are used to being in control and predicting outcomes. For us to truly get present and follow our Soul's whims one step at a time, means to step into the scary unknown. That place of unknowing, of uncertainty, can feel dark and filled with monsters. We hold on for dear life and fight tooth and nail not to be thrown off the edge into that scary place!

When there's a calling to step into that unknown, many people turn to battle. They try to fight away the voices that tell them not to move on, that tell them they can't, or they're not good enough. They start to beat themselves up for beating themselves up. They try to ignore those inner critical voices, or tell them to shut up. When really, those voices are just scared.

The only true way in, is to simply start walking gently past that edge into the unknown while holding compassion for the part of you that's scared sh**less. Our minds need to build trust that when you listen to your Soul, everything will indeed be okay.


Always in curiosity and love,

    Your words are so true to me, as that is just how I am feeling. I have everything all ready but am only touching the sides can’t seem to let go and just go with my flow. I just feel I can’t do it I’m not good enough! Yet inside I’m screaming it doesn’t matter do it anyway!
    It is good to know someone understand how I am feeling, so thank you Kristal.
