Creativity is like having a well that goes deeper than you could ever imagine. It’s as if every time you think you reach the bottom, a new bottom is developed. We’re creative beings because we’re connected to all the energy in the Universe. It’s that energy that feeds our soul and allows us to developing new stories and art in this world.
When I was in graduate school I had the opportunity to study with amazing people, and to study about amazing people. David Bohm’s experience of silence in groups is quite amazing. In addition Bohm stated, “You have capacities within you that are phenomenal, if you only knew how to release them.” Can you think of a more powerful or challenging statement?
How do you release your potential? We start by telling our stories. We have many places to tell our stories depending on how or why you’re telling your story. Support groups are one place for you to release your story, allowing the release of possibility. When you release your story you can begin to transform your story into other mediums.
If you keep a journal you can refer back to your stories. I have a plethora of journals, notebooks, sticky notes that have ideas and tidbits of my stories. I use these as inspiration for works of art. There is an excitement when I begin to develop a storyline, my storyline. It’s not about the literal story, but the essence of the story that begins to take on a life of its own. There is an experience of cultivation, nurturing and birthing of a piece of art.
Releasing my personal capacity is empowering and gives me the strength to continue on my personal journey to health and healing. It also gives me another way of viewing my past, present, and future. I can unleash different pathways of my own story when I work on themes of what’s to come.
What part of your story and capacities are you looking to release? How do you experience being phenomenal? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. For more information on health and healing visit, http://www.survivingstrong.com.
