“The Universe is ever expanding and gives rise to new opportunities for creating and orchestrating planetary and galactic development. So, if the Universe is pushing ever on outward, why set boundaries for creativity on any level?
Never limit yourself because anything can be achieved if doubt is removed.
The Universe is not set — why should you be?”
~excerpt from ‘Creative Expression — How to find your inspiration’
The Boxes We Create
There are 2 main dowsers of our creative flame:
1. Doubting Thomas
We all have experienced doubt on some level or other. When it comes to our own creative expansion, doubt is the little monster that comes to urinate on our freshly lit fires.
To have a little bit of doubt is natural, what isn’t natural is to let it win over in your life!
When we come up against doubt, we need to closely examine it — see if it’s just a threshold guardian that we have placed in our own way (hint: it usually is). Doubt is a stumbling block to growth, and it’s our job to overcome our uncertainties. We need to push out of any comfort zones we’ve created for ourselves.
Each time we are faced with self-doubt and overthrow it, we add another building block of strength and character to our personality.
Lesson from the Universe: Take the ‘ubt’ out of doubt and DO.
2. Rigid Ruthy
Rigidity is when we don’t move forward. We get stuck in our mental body (which almost always leads to us getting stiff in our physical body and unbending in our emotional body).
We tend to get jammed in:
- thinking we know it all or we’re the best in our field,
- thinking there is nothing more to learn or add to our experience or what we can offer others,
- thinking that it’s all been done before and there’s nothing new anymore,
- feeling way too comfortable where we are and not leaving any more room for personal growth.
Lesson from the Universe: I am limitless and ever expanding (macrocosm), so are you (microcosm).
