We are all creative beings, and women especially are constantly called upon to create, or to birth, so to speak. It’s in our DNA, it’s part of our nature, it’s one of those things that makes us human: our imagination and what we do with it.
We are all also spiritual beings, and we are all in search of purpose, and want to be part of something greater than ourselves. You know, the search for the meaning in life.
Creativity is a powerful force that is greater than us, moves through us, and creates with us. This practice takes us beyond our own limits and beyond ourselves in a way that can be called spiritual.
The creative process seems to emerge inside of us, from a place of knowing that is difficult to grasp, and yet connects with life and the human experience in incredible ways. As such, listening to the creative call, and allowing it to express itself through you, requires you to slow down and listen. And in the world we live in, that’s a hard thing to do.
To me, this type of contemplative awareness is what a spiritual practice is all about. It’s a search for greater meaning in your life, it’s a pause that asks you to think about the mystery of life, and it’s a way to create space for stillness and for a different kind of human experience.
