The laws of creativity apply to everything – not just to works of art. That includes your business, your relationships – your whole life!
The secret that artists understand about practicing art is that it teaches the creator how to create, and how to be a creator. Over and over again, the artist learns the process of making things – including the obstacles that arise, the futility of forcing the flow, and the joy of allowing inspiration.
Practicing being a CREATOR has been nothing less than revolutionary in my own life.
That’s because I grew up learning more about Getting than I did about Creating. And I’m not alone in that. Most of the life lessons we’ve all learned are about Getting.
We gotta get rich, get approved, get stuff, get a job, get a life, get laid, get publicity, get someone to do something, get approval, get high, get married, get a loan, get good grades, get a clue, get into college, get up, get down, get out.
Getting is an epidemic. It makes us grab at life. It takes us out of the present moment. It makes us powerless. It forces us to manipulate our own spirits so that we can manipulate the situation. Getting requires that we use our precious creative power to get, rather than to use it for its primary purpose, which is to Create. When we misuse this power, we become contorted. We block the flow. The focus is on “out there” rather than “in here.”
When we become Creators, we turn the whole thing around. Everything becomes an inside job. We experience true power. We create our lives.
One of the people in my Uplevel Your Life® Mastery Program set an intention for wealth and money during the first week. After that, she went through a huge awakening about her relationship to money and to her father. She realized that her dad has been her source of money, and so she spent most of her life looking to him, resenting him, and playing games with him to get her money. She never learned that there was any other way to do it.
As a beginning step, I asked her to imagine what it would feel like if she knew she could create her own money and generate prosperity for herself. I asked her what it would feel like to not need her dad’s money.
It was the first time she’d ever explored that possibility. She said it would be amazing and liberating. It would allow her to have a relationship with her dad on her own terms.
Stepping out of the mindset of Getting and into the mindset of Creating heals relationships. It will also propel your business and heal your life. When you don’t need to Get things from other people (including your happiness), then you can allow them to be who they are and make their own choices. You can request things, of course. But the energy of this is very different from trying to Get something.
Think of one thing that you’ve been trying to get. What it would feel like to become a creator instead? How would your actions be different?
