Appreciate & Use Your Creativity

woman’s hands made in the form of heartI have recently found myself exploring the subject of Creativity and Imagination. Something that whether we realize it or not, we all have. I find it interesting that many of us if asked say that we are not creative.

We have the misperception that to be creative we have to be artistic in some way. Being creative is often linked to activities such as painting, drawing, writing and craftwork but not much else.

Dancing On Your Brain: The Cha-Cha Effect

Mark Twain once made a comment that illustrates my grandmother’s idea perfectly. He said:

“It is discouraging to try to penetrate a mind like yours. You ought to get it out and dance on it. That would take some of the rigidity out of it.”


Creating Time

“I’m fine, just crazy busy. . .”

“I just don’t know when I can find the time. . .”

“I can’t really talk now, I’m running late. . .”

Tap The Creative Inside You

Holding hands open with glowing lightsImagination is the source of creativity. It’s a place where unlimited possibilities reside. It’s where pure energy lives.

People are innately imaginative and creative. However, most people are simply not conscious of their imaginative and creative selves.
