A little article for Elemental Alchemy about the natural connection within the creative process
Awakening to the essence of being - The natural connection within the creative process
The Sun is out in the Sky.
The Sun is a guide, the presence of light within our daily life.
The Sun is always there, and the clouds simply are a covering veil.
The Sun is always there.
The Sun can help us to understand what happens within ourselves. Our inner light is always bright and shining, but sometimes clouds can cover it up a little. Moving the clouds away can result in a storm, with torrential rain and strong wind. Then the rainbow appears, and the inner light not only can be seen with more clarity, but it also shows a glorious celebration of its beauty.
The creative process is a powerful tool. It allows us to express, heal, and transform ourselves. Through the process, we have the chance to feel who we truly are and experience joy, deep connection, and peace. The creative energy within our being is always present, and it is part of our inner light. When we allow ourselves to dance, paint, write, or sing in a free and unconditional way, we are clearing away the clouds. In other words, we are creating space for the Sun to appear and are welcoming the rainbow as a celebration of life.
We are energy, everything is energy. Perhaps we have heard of this phrase before, but understanding its deeper meaning takes time and patience. We are energy beings, made of pure light, exactly like the Sun. When we see life in this way, everything shifts, and our perception changes completely. We have so much in common with Nature and the world that surrounds us. Everything, including ourselves, is made by the same substance. However, vibration and frequency can differ.
When we create art and connect with our creative potential, we are accessing the creative life force within ourselves. This life force is the energy of Nature. The same life force of the Sun, infused within us all. Moving with our creative energy can feel like an inner exploration of the natural world. We might find ourselves flowing freely like a river of water, bursting with passion like the flame of fire, breathing in new energy, and clearing away the old with the strength of the wind. We can sense every cell of our physical body, its solidity, its steadiness, and connection with the ground, with the Earth. We can embody the stability of a stone, observing our life through wisdom and ancient consciousness.
Our experience through the essence of life is a very personal journey. It is our choice to accept this opportunity and all its gifts. There are many shades of colours available to us, but we can also decide to use only black and white. The decision can be conscious or unconscious, but perhaps always refers to a bigger plan. Since time doesn’t exist, it is only a matter of perception. Eventually, we will all include the colours of the rainbow within our palette.
