Sweet Creation! Be in the Now
Creative expression is an opportunity to be present in the moment, to release what you no longer need and lift the veils of doubt and fear. To create is to be in the now, its energy allows you to experience, integrate and embody who you really are. It creates the space for you to access and express your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, paving the way for abundant benefits to
your mind, body, soul and emotions. It enables and aids you to; get in touch with your intuition, inner wisdom and guidance; gain greater clarity, understanding and compassion within; remember how to play, imagine and reinvent the self; uncover and access your inner and outer resources; strengthen your coping mechanisms; explore what lies within in order to bring out and activate your highest and greatest potential; experience greater balance, alignment and joy within; enter into a space of healing and transformation; develop a deeper sense of connectedness, wholeness and meaning; reduce stress and anxiety and feel more relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated; enhance your self confidence and esteem and expand your sense of freedom as you go beyond your mask of everyday living.
The benefits are abundant. Drawing upon creativity and expression via creative elements, pursuits and explorations allows the essence of creation to stream through you. Its flow is like a river of light. The more light that pours through your being the lighter your being feels. Shine it from the inside, out.
p.s. Kalvin says if you think this is magical that's because it is. He reminds me we are living within an ever-expanding abundant Universe within Cosmic Creation. We are created from its creative life impulse. We breathe in its essence on average 28,800 times a day (it's a bit more than that for Kalvin as he happily points out piglets breathe faster than humans). Our cells, each atom and every molecule in our being is a part of creation. When we allow ourselves to enter the space of conscious creation we are aware, connected and attuned. Kalvin says from this place we can access, express and claim our authenticity, and enable and empower the self to maneuver from here to there, to live the life we were born to create. Kalvin thinks that's magical. But he says there's no need to wait for magic or until pigs can fly to be creative. He reckons this week is a good a week as any to enter the realm of creativity and connect deeper to your creative self. He dares 'ya.
p.p.s. Kalvin says if you are unsure where to start, ask yourself, what creative things did I love doing as a kid? He says our inner child is one smart cookie.
p.p.p.s. during the photo shoot Kalvin munched through a few Coconut & Crunchie Cookies, he insisted it would make the shot more authentic. To bake your own batch, follow this Lelicious Recipe.
