The human brain contains an estimated 50 to 100 billion neurons that communicate to one another with over 1,000 trillion synaptic connections in order to carry out the functions that we need and want to do. And as mind-blowing as that is, this complex organ can’t do everything…not alone, anyway. Having said that, let me explain. It is a mechanism that is interconnected to itself, other systems of the body, and to the core of who we are as individuals – our minds and our personalities, as well as to our spirits. One part cannot live without the others; it cannot thrive; it cannot create; it cannot exist. It is by this fact that each one of us has the ability to create the kind of life we desire.
The phrase “out of your mind creativity” struck me hard as I heard Neale Donald Walsh utter it during an interview. He was referring to the kind of creative endeavors that arise from an authentic, higher part of us with which we may not always be in touch. In order to expand, to align with truth, to be the conduit for greatness, we must learn to connect to this part of ourselves and the world in which it lives. Too often we stay in the proverbial box, the confines of the ordinary, waiting for something to change, for something to erupt and be the breakthrough idea that transforms our lives. Creative thought does not live in the ordinary or in any box, for that matter, but it thrives in an infinite world with no boundaries, no sharp edges, and no boring waiting rooms.
Getting outside the “box”, out of “your mind” is simple but not always easy. It requires setting aside (kicking out) habitual thinking, negative core beliefs, outside influence, all that you think you know in order to hear what this deep, spiritual existence is communicating. It’s a Divine place. A place where you (and I) can create anything, do anything, be anything that we want to be. I truly believe that we all have been there at one time or another. Can you recall a moment when a thought or an inspiration felt so right that you had to find a way to express it? The only way you could exhibit what your deepest self knew was to create something you’d never created before. Sound familiar?
The results of these profound moments are the brilliant paintings that bring tears to eyes; the books that change lives forever; the songs that move lovers to reunite; the movies that inspire individuality; the three-year-old’s “abstract” finger painting that evokes a proud tear from a new mom. No thought alone could create such monumental elements that weave together our world.
What does your higher self want to create?
How will it affect you and others?
