Have you ever thought that you weren’t all that creative? Or worse, had someone tell you, you’re so not creative?
My brother used to tell me I couldn’t sing, my sister said a garden gnome had more rhythm than I did, so I shouldn’t bother to dance and the art teacher mentioned on more than one occasion, that people’s hands and arms weren’t usually twice the size of their bodies. Funny, she didn’t see me as a budding Picasso. Maybe I should have made the eyes bigger instead of the hands.
I began to suffer from CSCDCP syndrome. Okay, I made that up, but having accepted that I couldn’t sing, couldn’t dance, couldn’t paint worth a lick, and basically couldn’t do anything that I deemed ‘creative’, I called it CSCDCP for short, and it was my super duper professional opinion that it was a totally real condition, and should probably be in a medical dictionary.
This was of course before my awakening took place. No, this wasn’t a bright light, voice in the sky kind of awakening, more a little flickering candle flame awakening, reminding me that within every one of us is the most ginormous creative power. Got news for everyone…you are creative…by birth.
The world will hypnotize you if you let it. That was part of my flickering awakening.
We’re all hypnotized to some degree or another, I kid you not. Every idea we’ve accepted as true, every thought we repeat to ourselves, every feeling we consistently feel…wham, hypnosis has taken place.
Think of what a hypnotist does for a minute. When an athlete is capable of lifting say four hundred pounds (can people actually do that?) and a hypnotist tells him he can’t lift a book from a table, he hasn’t made the strong man weak, he merely persuaded his subconscious mind that he couldn’t do it, and so that uber strong athlete couldn’t lift a book from a table. Our subconscious rules the roost folks.
What if we hypnotized ourselves with the idea that we are amazingly powerful, and superbly confident. What if those who felt they weren’t good enough, or pretty enough, or clever enough, or creative enough, began to use self-hypnosis to believe something different about themselves. We already persuade ourselves every day about every thing. We’re just going to tell ourselves a different story.
These beliefs that we’re not enough, or as I thought, not creative, are false beliefs and it’s time to wake up to the fact that you’re more than enough. More than enough to be happy, more than enough to live a truly blessed life. Within you lie unexplored gifts and talents, hidden from view because of the roadblocks your subconscious has thrown in your way.
Well they’re really our roadblocks, because we thought the thoughts and felt the feelings and our subconscious just says okay. Our negative and false beliefs prevent us from accessing the creative spirit of change that lies within us all, regardless of what it is that we desire.
So if we have any habits of negative inner conversations they must be replaced. If you’re to experience yourself as the amazing person you are then that inner conversation that tells you otherwise has to go.
The easiest way to eliminate a habit we don’t like is to replace it with another, better one and habits work for us when we apply them daily. What we say to ourselves is just a habit, not the truth, yet it’s a habit that uses the law of consciousness against us if its negative and if our inner conversations are positive then it obviously works towards our happier, better life.
We might have been hypnotized by those old habits of thought, but the good news is that these habits are powerless once we take back control of our thinking. It might take up to ninety days or more, if the habit is deeply ingrained, but no matter, every day that we are more in control of our inner conversation, we’re heading along the path to de-hypnotizing ourselves.
Change those negative ideas you have about you or others, don’t accept what your mind says about you…unless of course its brilliant. Weed out those fearful, unlovely thoughts, they’re really not helpful at all and certainly won’t take you towards the fulfillment of all your desires.
After all, our consciousness produces our reality and our consciousness consists of what we’re thinking, feeling, believing, accepting or reacting to – so let’s be smart and keep it focused on the loveliest things we can imagine. I know we can do it.
Begin to question your beliefs:
Why do I believe I’m not………..
Why do I believe I can’t………….
Is it possible I’m wrong in this belief?
Would I believe the same thing about someone else, or is it just me?
Why should I keep believing this as if it were true?
Can I let go of beliefs that don’t serve me well?
And then ask yourself can I change this belief? And the answer has to be a resounding YES YOU CAN.
The only thing we need do is convince our subconscious of the truth of that which we desire to see manifested, and we do it by generating new thoughts and feelings. If we would but stay in the mindset of feeling good and keep our attention focused on our manifested desire, then we are using our inbuilt creativity to produce abundance.
Two final things.
Don’t take it all too seriously.
Encourage one another.
