Ressurecting the blog

Oh boy. Going back through this blog and reading things I wrote from 3, 4, 5 years ago! It's scary because I see that I am exactly the same and yet ... very different.

I'm choosing to keep this blog going to keep the creative energy moving... but I also really love sharing the different videos of teachers that have kept me inspired throughout the years.

Maybe some friends out there will find some value in it. If not, thats okay- it can be an online journal of sorts.

It's been fun going back and reading my old thoughts and feelings. I can really start to see where I have been so naive in ways and also the extreme idealism I've had about life. It's okay to be that way but the years have brought in a healthy dose of balance when it comes to my overall outlook on life.

I much prefer where I am now to the constant wandering and daydreaming I did in the past. It all serves a purpose in the end.

Creativity.

I am curious how many people feel that their creativity is stifled by patterns of self-critisism? Do you experience creativity in your day to day- and in what unique ways? If you aren't experiencing much creativity, how do you imagine your life would change if you were stepping into that realm more often? What different ways do you get creative now and how would you like to experience new creative endeavors. How important is creativity for our inner expansion?

For me- I feel I am an extremely creative person but most of my creative energy lies dormant after years of being too self-critical. Writing is one way that I allow myself to be creative mostly because I feel more in control. I do love painting but don't do it often enough to consider it a true outlet. I am a pretty damn good vocalist but have always felt extremely vulnerable when sharing that gift- like people see to much of me when I open my mouth to sing- but on my own it is one of my favorite things. Communication is creative for me and so is working in the healing arts. Helping people to move stagnant energy and sharing different modalities to transform life. I would love to expand my creativity! I see it as a really therapeutic and worthwhile investment- good for the soul, explorative, fun and relaxing. Is expressing my desire for more creativity creative in itself? Not sure...
