Do you have a sense of what your soul is still longing to do in this world in your lifetime?
Have you connected with the dreams you want to manifest? Have you started down the path to accomplish them?
If not, you’re not alone and you’re in the right place right now!
I want to invite you to go on a journey of creative exploration with me today to begin to open the door to the longings of your soul, the ones that are still wanting to manifest in this world through the unique gifts that you have.
Engaging in a creative exploration will help you to come back to your true nature, your True Self. In this exploration, you’ll be able to explore your deeper longings, those dreams you still have for this lifetime.
So, join me and let’s get started!
Get a piece of white paper (or maybe a few!) and several colored pencils, preferably with a good variety of colors. Maybe even crayons, if you have those.
Set your materials out in front of you and take a deep breath. Feel your body settling into your chair. Allow it to do so.
Don’t be intimidated by that blank white page! Take a few deep breaths and sit quietly for a moment. Close your eyes.
Think of 3 gifts that you have, three gifts that arise as unique in you in some way. Picture how your talents, experiences, and/or skills all weave through with unique expression through each gift.
Having a hard time accepting that you DO have gifts? Maybe you have hidden them away out of fear of judgment?
Now’s the time to open the door and let them come out to play. Invite them, embrace them, accept and love them. No one’s here to judge them today.
Maybe you’re having a hard time thinking of 3? It could be that you haven’t fully developed them yet.
No problem! Think of 3 areas that are passions, things you LOVE to do or experience.
It could be that you have no problem thinking of 3. In fact, you can think of many more than 3. Great!
For this exercise, limit yourself to 3. The three that stand out the most or come to mind first.
Close your eyes for a moment, holding the first gift or passion inwardly. Open your eyes and pick up the colored pencil that calls to you for that first idea.
Start to color or draw in a way that you seem drawn to do in that moment. Maybe it’s strong color across the page in lines or maybe gentle curves in a corner. Maybe it becomes a mountain or fireworks. See what’s calling to you.
If you’re drawn to write a word or two with the color, go for it!
Stay engaged with the process, listening and trusting that what arises will be perfect and what’s needed today.
Then when you feel complete with the creative, color exploration with the first idea for your gift or passion, move onto the 2nd one. Use the same paper if there’s space or go to a new one.
Hold the second idea inwardly with your eyes closed for a moment. Open your eyes and pick up the colored pencil that calls to you related to that second idea. Start to color or draw in a way that you seem to be drawn to do in that moment.
When you feel complete on the second idea for your gift or passion, move onto the 3rd one. Once again, use the same paper if there’s space or go to a new one.
Hold the third gift or passion inwardly with your eyes closed for a moment. Open your eyes and pick up the colored pencil that calls to you related to that third idea. Start to color or draw in a way that you seem drawn to do.
When you feel ready to come to completion with your 3 ideas, look at your creation(s). Trust that they’re perfect for right now, for today.
Consider what your creation may be saying to you today.
What’s calling to you, longing to be born into the world from your gifts and passions?
What dreams do you still have that are yearning to be realized through your gifts or passions?
What’s not yet been manifested that is bubbling up from within right now?
Sit quietly and turn inward to consider these questions. Listen to the message that speaks through your creative exploration on paper today.
Allow whatever arises to do so without judgment, without analysis, without filtering.
When you arrive at the place of a completion, you can sit back and rest for the moment. Let a sense of peace with deep gratitude for this moment of creative exploration about your journey in life arise. Know that the messages that came to you today will blossom further in the days to come.
I invite you to repeat this creative activity as often as you’d like. Engaging in it can help you to…
1. Create a place of inward calm and quiet to be open to receive As you engage with your artistic creation, you enter into a calmer state within your mind and body. Your breath slows down and your body relaxes. You become more open to receiving divine messages.
2. Develop your ability to follow your intuition and align with your gifts As you open to receive, you’ll be better able to tap into your intuition as a guide. Listen inwardly. What calls to you?
What arises may not be what you were thinking at first! This is an opportunity to accept what comes. Accept that it’s exactly as it should be at that moment. No judgment, no regrets.
3. Boost your energy and excitement for the next steps on your journey As the time of your creative exploration comes to a close, you’ll feel a sense of fulfillment from the process. You’ll feel rejuvenated, a replenishing of your energy and strength to move out into the world once again.
Blessings on your creative exploration and deeper discovery of the longings of your soul. May you fully manifest your gifts and dreams in the world!
