PATHWAY 5 OF 7: Owning Your Creative Gifts
The processes of Letting Go, Discovering and Releasing takes you to the door of the room where your treasure box resides. After all these years you finally have access to your beautiful God given gems that you have been denying for so long.
You look inside and see the gem and reach in and take it to your heart and reclaim it.
WHAT IT WILL TAKE
It is going to take WILLINGNESS to reclaim and own this precious, divine part of yourself.
When you have the willingness to look through this open door and look at your gem and you now have a choice. You can say “yes” or “no” to yourself. You have conscious choice.
You have cleared the way for this and now you get to ask “Now what am I going to do?”!
So it will take a willingness to take the actions you wanted so long ago.
There is no more denying the little child inside who has been quietly knocking on the door your entire life to. If someone compliments you on your gift there is no more rolling of the eyes. You get to say a resounding “Thank you!”
You must be willing to acknowledge this beautiful child … YOU … to love and honor this and the adult part of yourself so deeply. Be ready to say …
“OMG! That’s my gem.
I am an ______________! I love to ______________!”
My statement would be “I am an artist and I love to draw!
(Fill in the blanks with your passion!)
And if you are already creating in your type of art perhaps it is time to look deeper and see the new gem that is waiting for you.
Perhaps there is a new type of art ready for you to express. There is always an opportunity to go deeper.
When you are willing to open yourself up to deeper understanding of who you are as a divine being you are helping others to rise up and claim their gem too.
That is how we change the world. We change ourselves first. Then we serve as a model for others. Others can be your children, your parents and friends as well as your clients.
ACTION IDEAS TO BEGIN
Use your gift!
If you like to draw then draw.
If you like to write then write.
If you like to sing then sing already!
If you like to dance then do that!
I just found my tap shoes in my storage unit and I’m getting ready to put then on and start tapping. I may even sign up for a class … something I have been wanting to do for a long time.
So if you feel you are ready to own your gift buy some pads of paper and markers and/or paints, buy your tap shoes, get your piano tuned, etc. You get the idea!
If you are not sure how to get started schedule a and inquire about art classes in the art you are interested in from your local adult education guide. Here in Houston we have an organization called Leisure Learning that offers various kinds of creative and art classes. Check out your newspaper and local magazines to see what organizations offer what you are looking for.
Just go for it and change your life!
