Creative Expression

The human experience itself is an aspect of creative expression. For who are you if not the loving expression of your Creator through time. You are beings of creativity. Your purpose on the material plane is to create that which you desire, through intent and emotion. When one's creative expression becomes restricted through fear, judgment, or discouragement, the human spirit can move into despair. We encourage you to express yourselves through the varied forms and modes of creative activity which most speak to your heart. Within the human design is an energy of divine creativity that yearns to express its deepest desires and most intimate experiences. To hold that at bay, as it were causes suppression of spirit at a most basic level.

Without the ability, or courage to express yourself, it can feel as if your creative wings have been clipped, keeping you grounded when your heart's desire is to fly free. We ask you to look at the ways that you restrict your expression. In what moments do you clamp down on your words and swallow them once again? Notice what happens in your body when you do that. Notice what happens in your heart in that moment. Is it open and free or closed off and limited? What happens to your joy when that takes place? Has it gone into hiding? We ask you to move through the fear and limitations which would serve to keep you grounded. Your hearts yearn to soar free, for that is what hearts do best.

Take time to discover what lies at the foundations of your fears. What beliefs do you hold consciously or unconsciously which cause you to project attitudes of discouragement and the belittling of self. It does not serve you to hold to these beliefs. They have become the tattered ropes which tether you to outmoded ways of being in the world. Know that the projections of your own mind move out before you and draw to you that which you fear as well as that which is fueled by love. So, pay attention to your thoughts, the words you use on a daily basis, and the emotions behind them. They set into motion that which will present itself to you in time. Do not allow yourself to speak words that make you feel less than, or encourage the ego to continue its protective measures.

It is time now more than ever to be who you truly are. There are none that will judge you more harshly than you can handle. Put those thoughts aside, for they do not serve you. Judgment speaks more of the holder of such attitudes than of anything you could ever say or do. Judgment wreaks a mental perception based on fear. One judges in order to support one's own systems of belief and experience. If you are feeling judged by others, you must ask yourself: "Who and what is it that I am judging?" "Where do I seek self aggrandizement at the expense and in comparison of others?"

Do not let the wild imaginings of your mind hold you from yourself and your ability to show that self to the world. For you are a creator, and your means and modes of creative expression are your gift to the world. Do not allow the shallow protective chatter of the mind to keep you from your truth. Do not allow the preconceived notions you have about the world to keep you from your experience of it. For you are here to create a world of hope and beauty as the light of spirit shines through your unique prism of self. Do not hold back. The world awaits your gifts of love. For the stopping up of love-based energies causes constrictions in the heart and mind. Trust yourself to know when it is loving and appropriate to share yourself with the world and when the timing is not yet at hand. You have choice in this. Do not fear. You would not be feeling the stirrings of your heart if it were not time to express them to others. Release judgment from your life and you release the hold that the judgment of others has had on you. Be free and call to yourself the essence of creativity which would express itself through you and become unique and magnificent gifts to the greater world.
