A blessing to stoke the fires of your creative soul, to bring forth the dreams that lie in wait for you, a blessing to charge up your gifts so that they can be seen and shine within the world.
Creativity is a blessing given to us all – yours is as natural to you as your breathing. It is said that some are more creative than others, but for you, this gift is lying in wait now, and it is for you to bring to it your dedication and attention so it can arise from its sleep and awaken into the world. You have creative gifts – the gift of thinking in a new way, seeing things differently, telling a story through clay or wood or gems or words or paint, and in the telling of the story holding a mirror up to our existence, saying, see, this is the truth of who we are.
Creativity is the act of making something and letting it have life – to be a creator is to connect strongly with the Divine, for you bring forth into the world what was unseen until you imagined it. It is both the harnessing of your imagination and your dedication, and with these two steeds you pull the dream from the unreal world into the natural world – and you delight us with the blessing that is your gift. So, if you are reading this and you have faltered on your creative journey, know that this blessing will help you set aside the chorus of doubt that sings within all of us, to quieten the naysaying voice that dims your gift, and in the silence of inspiration you shall again begin to flow. So, capture the fleeting gift when it comes, and know that when you do this, the world is made more beautiful.
Be creative, live creatively, shake off inertia and habit and make of your whole life an art. No age, no job, no relationship defines you – but it is the way in which you choose to live as art that will show us who you truly are. So, wild soul, a blessing on your creativity – may you show us your gifts!
