Are You a Spiritual Creative? Part II

Spiritual Creatives are insightful, intuitive, and imaginative, tender-hearted and passionate. We’re great at receiving inspired visions and getting excited about them. We are not always equally great at manifesting those visions. Taking assertive action and putting ourselves forward does not come easily to most of us.

In fact, we often shrink from the idea of promoting ourselves, of selling our services, of competing in the marketplace. This was certainly true of me for most of my life. The world can seem overwhelming and frightening when you’re a sensitive soul.

Hence, we end up hiding more than we need to, to protect ourselves from possible hurt. Not only do we have thin skins; we also have high ideals. Selling often seems crass and unspiritual to us, something we shouldn’t have to do.

But it is time to free ourselves from these self-imposed limits, because this is the time when the world needs us the most. Our gifts are called for now.

The very capacities that Spiritual Creatives have in abundance – creative thinking, intuitive connections, spiritual guidance, and a desire to serve – are exactly what are needed to bring our earth and our human family onto the path of healing.

We are being called from within – from the longing of our own soul to be all that we can be – and from without – by the world’s true and urgent need.

I’ve come to the conclusion that Spiritual Creatives are the people with the greatest gifts to give AND the ones who have the hardest time getting those gifts into the world.

That’s why I am dedicated to helping you free yourself from whatever is holding you back – be it issues around money, success, marketing, and self value; or lack of clarity in your vision and purpose. Whatever it takes, I want to see you bloom.

Because only when enough souls bloom will the earth have a chance to finally become the garden we dream of

Are You a Spiritual Creative? Part I

Many of the people I work with, play with, and are friends with are what I call “Spiritual Creatives.” This includes artists, healers, counselors, coaches, and transformational entrepreneurs of all kinds. Spiritual Creatives are idealists who would also like to be realists, who seek to live soul-powered, inspired lives, serve the higher good, and make a decent living at the same time.

Perhaps you are a Spiritual Creative yourself.

If you recognize yourself in this, you have probably been on a path of personal and spiritual development and awakening for a number of years. You doubtless have many gifts to give the world, and those gifts are knocking at the door, wanting to be let out.

You may have a deep sense that you were born for a purpose, even if you’re not quite sure what that is. You know you want to make a difference, to help others, to make the world a better place. You may believe you have some role to play in the historic shift of consciousness taking place at this time. I believe you do too!

I have always felt poignantly the gap between the potential within each of us and what does or does not get actualized.

That gap is particularly painful when it comes to Spiritual Creatives, who have so much to give, and whose gifts are so badly needed by the world at this time. And yet we may be the very folks who  have the hardest  time getting our gifts out into the world.

I include myself in this category and, as a late bloomer, I am finally letting my light shine out from under that bushel. Why this is I will go into more in my next post.

Are You Still Hiding?

Sometimes it feels safer to hide, as Lotus well knows.

I know it too. I spent a lot of my life watching from the sidelines, afraid to jump in.

For instance, as a child I was afraid to jump in to games of jump rope. What if I tripped and fell on my face? What if I got laughed at?

As an adult, I had a lot I wanted to do and give – but it didn’t feel safe to be so visible. What if people didn’t like what I offered?

There are times when retreating and regrouping are exactly what’s needed. There are times when watching prepares us to act. There are times when we have to make sure we feel safe, above all.

And then there are times when we’re ready to take a risk, to start moving forward . . . one foot at a time.

As Anais Nin said, there comes a day when “the risk to remain tight in a bud” becomes more painful than “the risk it [takes] to blossom.”

Hiding is fine at certain times . . so long as it doesn’t become a habit. So long as you’re willing to finally come out and play!
