There is a difference between creativity and imagination. Creativity is still and quiet, it is a source of abundant energy contained within you, waiting for direction and use. Imagination is the movement, the vision made manifest, the direction and precise execution of that abundant energy now ready and available for use. In the state of imagination, energy is no longer contained but now in motion, it is the complete action and use of your power. Creativity is the cavern, the womb, the cocoon containing potent energy and ideas that your imagination can run wild with.
There is a common misconception in the approach to life and manifesting your dreams, it is the thought that you are to “do” something. You are to continue to “do… do… do…” and do some more and somehow, “make” it happen. The actions put into “doing” become more and more unfocused, tiresome and ultimately a misuse of your creative power. You burn right through your energy reserves and therefore, burn out. The reality of creative energy is that it’s a natural source of energy generated within you and set aside for use when it’s fully engaged, focused and ready to fuel you towards those things you want to create. You are to “do” nothing but wait patiently and listen deeply. You are the vessel, your job is to be ready when it moves, to be steady, open and available to allow this flow of creative energy to move through you unhindered and untainted. You are the caretaker of this amazing life force created and cultivated inside you until it’s ready to be seen, to be made manifest from the inside-out.
The power of creativity, your power is in moving only when the direction and clarity is so ripe, so potent, that there is no time to question. There is no time for fear or second guessing, to be tired or resistant, there is no time because your use of time now, is used creatively. You’re no longer burning through energy in trying to “make” things happen, you’re allowing the potent energy to freely move through you, promptly and purposely. When imagination takes over and puts all that creative energy to good use, all that was once contained inside is now filling you, moving you, empowering you and successfully, right before your eyes validating your beautiful power to create.
Do not fear or damn the holding period, that’s like damning the child in the womb. Be calm, stay centered and grounded, be open and nurture your energy, rest because the creative energy, the creative power inside you is growing. It’s growing and getting stronger so it can move you, to carry you if necessary. It will lift you off your feet and you will fly. Do not move in haste, do not move at all, let it move through you. It will move you, it’s inevitable, it’s your Divine design, your birthright to be and become. Stay steadfast and trust in that, trust in your Divine essence, your creative spark of self-expression and trust in the enormity of it all because all of it, is already inside you just waiting to come out. And when that creative energy is ready to move, to manifest, to go beyond your flesh and bones, to be seen before you, you’ll know it. There will be no mistake about it and you won’t be able to stop it, you won’t want to because you’ll feel the surge and know your power. Go ahead, unplug yourself-
