Is there something in your life that you are longing to create? Are you wanting to finally write that book or go on that trip you’ve dreamed of your whole life?
Or are you wanting to create your own vegetable garden or maybe take singing classes? Or do you long to start your own business?
What is standing in your way from doing this? Sometimes we can see only walls in our path, and we become stuck. We think that what we want to create is unrealistic or impossible. Our fear stops us from taking action.
No matter what it is that you’re longing to create, you can do it! Whatever your creative dream is, I know you can make it come true. The truth is that there are as many beautiful things to create as there are people on this planet.
I remember the story of St. Hildegard, at age 42, when she heard a divine voice commanding her to speak and write about her experiences. She shared what it said to her,
“… speak and write what you see and hear… according to the extent that you see and hear those things in the heavens above in the marvelousness of God…
Write those things not according to yourself or by the standards of another person, but according to the will of the one knowing, the one who sees and arranges all things in the secrets of His own mysteries.
St. Hildegard didn’t want to act on this at all. I can certainly understand. She was frightened and anxious. She felt insecure and inadequate. All of us feel like this from time to time.
To share her visions with the world was going to be a big step. It was going against the culture and traditions of the time. Women weren’t part of the clergy in her time. Women didn’t preach, speak publicly, or write. Let alone on controversial topics such as visions from God.
St. Hildegard had to muster her courage and hold on to her faith that it would be okay, since she was being guided by the Divine.
“…. I put my hand to writing. Once I did this, a deep and profound exposition of books came over me. I received the strength …. and under that power I continued to carry out the work to the end.” - St. Hildegard of Bingen
It’s time to listen to the quiet voice inside that’s nagging at you, telling you that there’s more to life.
It’s time to let go of any sense of limitation or fear that you’re holding on to that’s standing in the way of what you long to create.
As you begin to take the first steps forward in realizing your vision, you’ll discover the sweet nectar of the Divine is being birthed upon the Earth through you. And where this divine energy flows, a powerful healing force can arise. For yourself. And for the world.
You’ll have more energy and more motivation as you create a clear intention with which to move forward. Your life will transform.
In the words of St. Hildegard:
I am the one whose praise
Echoes on high.
I adorn all the earth.
I am the breeze
That nurtures all things
I encourage blossoms to flourish with ripening fruits.
I am led by the spirit to feed
The purest streams.
I am the rain
Coming from the dew
That causes the grasses to laugh
With the joy of life.
I call forth tears,
Th aroma of holy work.
I am the yearning for good.
I invite you to blossom as you bring forth your gifts into the world. Become the yearning for the good that you can bring to others.
