Express Yourself!Affirmations for the creative flow.
You can never express yourself creatively by talking or thinking about what a klutz you are. If you say, “I am not creative,” then that’s an affirmation that will be true for you for as long as you continue to use it. There’s an innate creativity flowing through you, and if you let it out, it will surprise and delight you. You’re tapped in to the creative flow of energy in the Universe. Some of you may express yourself more creatively than others, but everyone can do it.
We create our lives every day. Each of us has unique talents and abilities. Unfortunately, too many of us had well-meaning adults stifle that creativity when we were children. I had a teacher who once told me I couldn’t dance because I was too tall. A friend was told he couldn’t draw because he drew the wrong tree. It’s all so silly. But we were obedient children and believed the messages.
Now we can go beyond them. Another false assumption is that you must be an artist to be creative. That’s just one form of creativity, and there are so many more. You’re creating every moment of your life—from the most common, ordinary creation of new cells in your body, to your emotional responses, to your present job, to your bank account, to your relationships with friends, and to your very attitudes about yourself. It’s all creativity.
Also, you could be a really good bed maker, you could cook delicious food, you could do your job creatively, you could be an artist in the garden, or you could be inventive in the ways in which you’re kind to others. These are a few of the millions of ways of expressing oneself creatively. No matter which way you choose, you’ll want to feel satisfaction and be deeply fulfilled by all that you do.
You’re divinely guided by Spirit at all times. Know that Spirit makes no mistakes. When there’s a strong desire within you to express or create something, know that this feeling is Divine discontent. Your longing is your calling— and no matter what it is, if you go with it, you’ll be guided, guarded, and assured of success.
When a purpose or path is laid before you, you have the choice to just trust and let it flow, or remain stuck in fear. Trusting the perfection that resides within you is the key. I know that it can be frightening!
Everybody is afraid of something, but you can do it anyway. Remember, the Universe loves you and wants you to succeed at everything you do.
Here are some positive affirmations you can use for expressing creativity:
- I do something new or at least different—every day.
- All of my creative projects bring me great satisfaction.
- My talents are in demand, and my unique gifts are appreciated by those around me.
- I feel good expressing myself in all sorts of creative ways.
- I know that I can create miracles in my life.
