Walking out of fear and doubt into your creative potential
I believe that most women are able to sense the dormant forces within us ready to awaken. There is almost always a powerful knowing of what we are truly capable of. Our intuition calls us to explore and ignite the highest powers of our human and soul potential, yet many of us don’t.
It can feel like we are fighting against a force of fear, doubt and unworthiness. It’s painful, debilitating and destructive.
Many women give up on their desires and dreams (long before they have ever consciously connected with them) feeling like it’s too hard, to frightening and much work, and they anchor themselves to a life with a permanent ache in their heart that constantly reminds them of what could be.
Yet many women are awakening. They are giving themselves permission to explore what is really possible, to open their heart and call in abundance, to rise up and claim what they dream of, desire and truly deserve and this is where our creative potential is ignited.
How can we break through those fears, doubts and unworthiness to draw down the full power of our spiritual force?
Women have a natural ability to embody a super-power called sensuality (men can access this too yet it often requires greater levels of practice, intention and focus).
Many of us (through conditioning) associate sensuality with sexuality, but that understanding is really limiting the power we can create with it.
So what is it really? Sensuality is our ability to live through our senses. All of our senses.
Not just taste, smell, sound, sight and touch but also what is considered our sixth sense of intuition and imagination but what I call our seventh sense which is our feeling nature – emotion.
Every woman on this earth has experienced conditioning around sensuality (and also sexuality), and there are layers of judgement, hesitation, resistance and even fear covered over what is a strong aspect of our femininity and creative power.
Sensuality is a power that we judge not just in ourselves, but also in other women who are embodying that quality. There is scorn for a confident sensual woman, especially when she is channeling that sensuality through her creativity.
Yet what if we were able to release all of those judgements and live into the full expression of this power within us? In the unique way it manifests through each of us?
What if we could channel our own power into creating the life we desire and deserve?
Creativity is not a gift given to some, we all have it and we are all creating our lives, our business, our relationships and beyond every single day, either from love or from fear.
Creativity is simply a movement of energy directed by our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, perceptions, attitudes and actions.
We lose authority over if we reject the experiences that fuel it (such as our emotional experiences), when we allow our fears to dominate us, and we don’t cultivate beliefs, attitudes and values that are in alignment with our truth.
The more of ourselves we judge, shut down and reject, the less connection to our creative flow we have.
How do we step into our full creative potential? Embrace all of who you are in this moment, even if you perceive it as ugly or painful or inauthentic.
I want to share that I absolutely belief that every single aspect of you is beautiful whether you can see it now or not. Every emotion, experience and event that has taken place in your life has purpose and contributes to your creative potential, as well as serving your purpose on this earth.
Whatever it is that’s alive you can learn something from it and opening up to receive all experiences will awaken your power as woman, as well as make you stronger, wiser and much more vibrant.
Your creativity is your experiences, emotions, feelings, perceptions and truth. You are not here to reproduce someone else’s work, or be someone else. You are here to share your own unique essence with the world and that comes from your imagination, your heart, your desire and your personal as well as divine will all channeled through you.
As you release more of your fear, judgement, resistance and depleting emotions you will create more space inside within not only for your creative forces but also to feel your way forward in life.
Embracing Your Sensuality For Transformation
When you are lost in fear or doubt come back to your senses.
Your 5 physical senses can shift your attention into the present moment and soften the chaos of any experience. Work with this by bringing your awareness into what you can taste, smell, hear, physically feel and see before you.
This takes your focus away from the challenge and moves you into an embodied state. Try and feel that experience in every layer of your body, and if you aren’t quite there yet imagine that you feel it.
Then, tune into your intuitive awareness (your sixth sense). Connect with yourself and ask if your gut, heart, mind or knowing trying to communicate with you and guide you. Pay attention to physical sensations from your survival intuition, images from your visionary intuition, feelings from your emotional intuition or a sense of knowing from your soul intuition. This may not be about your path forward, this may be your creative forces in action.
Then, when you feel disconnected, open your heart and feel your way forward. Feel all that is alive within you, the emotions, the sensations and your feelings. Acknowledge, receive and release any fear, resentment, anger or sadness that is alive within you. Feel the joy, gratitude, compassion or love deep into your heart and through your entire being so you can radiate it out into the world.
You have the ability to develop an intimate connection with the earth, nature, music, aroma and even people in your life.
As you do this work you will begin feel them into the core of your being in such a beautiful way.
You will have the ability to tune into the subtlest experiences that are taking place within you.
You will have the power to channel all that into your business, career or legacy through your creative force that will begin to flow in the most powerful way.
