The words 'we are made up of stardust' have been sung about, danced around, documented, researched, printed onto t-shirts and painted on canvas. Some see the words as a romantic idea or a whimsical thought. As the stars would have it, they are also based on scientific fact. Almost every element on our planet (including us) was formed at the heart of a star. And almost every element of our physical being is made up of the same elements that stars are made of. Elements themselves (such as carbon, nitrogen and oxygen) were actually created within the deep interior of stars.
We are made up of stardust.
For this nudge we're using these words as our prompt. What do they mean to you? What feelings come up for you? Connected, at one with all, interwoven with all things in the cosmos, ancient, nourished, light, shiny or maybe something entirely different? Allow whatever feels connected to these words to surface. Then, express this out in whatever way calls you. Maybe you create something to symbolise this. Perhaps you take a symbolic pic that represents your meaning. Or you might artwork or journal it out.
To remind yourself that you are made up of starstuff, take a symbolic pic of your nudge in action. Then use the pic as your screen saver or wallpaper on your phone or computer.
If you give the nudge a go, comment below or be a part of the conversation on my Facebook Page. If you share your star pic via Twitter or Instagram use the tag #creativenudgefridays so we can find you.
Create on, Jelena x
