There’s a particular dimension where creativity arises. It’s a little bit like the wick burning the flame, and its sustenance is the oil – it’s in an oil lamp, and you are the flame. All the analogies, by the way, are very deficient, but it’s just a distant approximation to get you into a sense of what that place is. Eckhart Tolle
Can you imagine a world without creativity?
Creative energy is quintessential to our life and everything we see before our eyes would not exist without it. In the moments that pass where creative energy is not present there is a feeling of void and energy depletion.
A new year is fast approaching and as we release anything in the past year that will not serve us positively in 2018. It is also a time to harvest the skills that we have tenderly nurtured throughout the last year in order to prepare a creative fusion for what is to come. In this blog edition we will explore beautiful crystals to free your creative blocks and expand your intuitive processes.
Whatever it may be that you are interested in doing in 2018, it is the year to bring to fruition all the dormant talents that you can share with the world. Every single person has a passion and if you have a passion that means you have something to contribute. Whether you are a creator, a maker or doer its time to harness your intuition and get your creative juices flowing, so that you can make a positive impact within your life.
Manifesting positive Confidence
To manifest positive confidence that isn’t led by the negative influences of our ego we need to develop a strong sense of who we are. This will give us the room to develop gut feelings or intuitive thinking. The Solar Plexus chakra which is situated below the ribcage and above the navel, is the energy centre that represents the ego. The ego is good as when it is balanced we can achieve a greater sense of wellbeing and responsibility for our emotions. When there is an imbalance in the solar plexus however, this will lead to devaluing and insecurity towards our self.
If you want to be confident in your creativity and decision making then working on the solar plexus Chakra using crystal energy will revive and balance this chakra. You will gain a greater awareness of self and stronger will. You will be able to see what is right for you to do in your life and will not be easily led onto a path which is not in alignment with you.
