The Search Within

by Dian Reid-Jancic· Follow Dian on

Yesterday I used a creative energy charge meditation to go in search of my creativity. And then I spent a large part of the day wondering when my creativity would kick in.

I could write a whole, long post about creativity and its elusive nature and the struggle of finding it and harnessing it and taking action once you’ve tapped into it. Instead I’ll just say this:

It dawned on me this morning that my creativity wasn’t out there somewhere waiting for me to tap into it, it was inside me simply waiting for me to open the door and let it flow out.

You know…it’s just…there.

Today I’ll use my creative energy charge meditation to channel my creativity in all that I do. And then, rather than waiting, I will simply do, and allow the creativity to flow through me. Something like this:

  • Meditate. Contemplate where in your body your creativity is. Contemplate where in your body peace resides. Contemplate where in your body the door to your soul is.
  • Live. As you go through your day, recall where in your body your creativity lounged. Recall where in your body peace plays. Recall where in your body the door to your soul opens.
  • Allow. When your creativity is present, allow it to simply be. When peace is present, allow that peace to flow wherever it pleases. When the door to your soul is open, allow whatever comes through it to be.

For me, meditation works when I go inside myself to see who’s there. Not when I look to meditation for my creativity or peace or authenticity; only using meditation to search within myself for these things.

What works for you?
