I write and draw everyday, not out of discipline or because I feel that I “have to,” but because it simply feels really good to do so…and to me it doesn’t matter if what I express on any particular day is meaningful to me or not. I create from an inner urge, a prime directive that nudges my energy to move and express through the field of the Higher Self’s body/mind/heart consciousness.
When I allow the creative force to move through an opened heart space, a certain momentum builds up to allow the flow and feeling of inspiration. There is then very little effort required…more like relaxing or surrendering into the flow and resonance of a vast and powerful river.
The Spirit of Creativity is like a divine song playing through the field of consciousness that moves us to vibrate energetically to its emanations. We then cannot help but dance to the joy that wells up from within and to create from the depths of inspiration that we have been gifted with. There is a divine simplicity to all of this: tuning into creativity is a matter of allowing ourselves to just be…in the fullness of all that we are, the dark as well as the light. Any perceived difficulty in doing this is in our resistance to deep feelings.
Creative inspiration is very much connected with the Bliss Vibration that can be experienced when we open ourselves to the fine nuances of feelings. Because of its innately ecstatic sensation, it doesn’t take much to keep the attention upon its vibration. In the beginning, the only challenge is in recognizing its initial presence and in making a visceral connection with its subtle radiance in the bodily field, especially in the spine. There are many avenues to its experience in the body: dance, meditation, art, music, fasting, etc. The simple secret is in learning to track the sensations to finer and finer subtlety. Certain postures and micromovements can help immensely in building the energetic magnet of the Blissful Resonance. In this matter, there are no “secret” postures or breathing techniques. It is a matter of deeply feeling into any posture that one decides upon and tuning into the finest sensations that naturally arise.
In cultivating this energy there can be tendencies in the beginning to violently contort the body, as it may not as yet be accustomed to the high voltage moving through it. During such times, gentleness is a good thing to remember so as not to injure or exhaust oneself. With experience we learn the upper limits of what our bodies are energetically capable of and also come to understand the many ways of dancing with these energies without “boiling” over. We learn to cultivate and to build up immense reserves of energy that can then be used for healing as well as for creative work.
