—Vincent Van GoghSummer is a time of growth, maturity, abundance, and creativity. Creative self-expression allows us to connect with the wisdom and desires of our souls. It enables us to deepen our self-understanding and promote healing. It also serves as prayer, drawing us closer to our Creator and our own divinity. As co-creators, it takes a great deal of strength to be a conscious co-creator. Every day, we are given a chance to express ourselves to share an inspired idea which brings some comfort and healing to our community, and the world. It’s as if the Universe is claiming: “I place before you a brand new day. Create with your heart and your soul, and make it the best day of your life. This is my deepest gift to you.” Created in the image and after the likeness of our Creator, we don’t get a choice about whether we will be creative, but we can choose what we create. Our thoughts are powerful beyond measure, and we are capable of creating whatever is in our souls via myriad forms: singing, sculpting, building a business, cultivating a loving relationship. The list goes on and on. Each and every day, every situation provides us with an opportunity to express our deepest selves. As we give birth to the divine spark that is within our souls, we open to the great and abundant lives for which we are created. In my own life, I’ve witnessed how much healing occurs and how much joy I experience when I expose my deepest and authentic self. This can happen while painting, cooking, penning a heartfelt article for Women’s Press, or, as the Spiritual Leader of the Circle of Spiritual Enlightenment, developing an uplifting and meaningful service. It’s less about what I create or how I create, but rather, that I express my soul. As you embark on expressing your soul through your creativity, some questions to ask yourself include:
- If we are all meant to be co-creators, what is my role?
- What nurtures my soul?
- When do I feel most alive?
- What activities provide me with the greatest amount of comfort and healing?
- What do I most want to share with others and how might it positively impact my community, the planet?
