Before getting into to how to clear some of the common roadblocks, let’s review the 3 levels of creation: thoughts, words, and actions.
3 Levels of Creation
Level 1. Our thoughts are reflections of our inner world and how we view the world.
Level 2. Our words describe our thoughts, and through describing, we activate our feelings, which makes the world we describe more real.
Level 3. Our actions will then be aligned by the feelings, which in turn create the world we thought into physical form.
Our nature is to create that which leads to a more fulfilling life experience. It’s all connected. By working on one level of creation, you will also work on the other two.
Roadblock #1 – The Past Dictates the Present Moment
Holding onto the past consumes our thought energy, which is the first level of creation. It separates us from the new possibilities that are available now. Healing is not possible without the willingness to let go of the past.
The holistic healer Louise Hay, who transformed numerous lives, healed her cervical cancer by choosing to let go of resentment for her childhood rapist and abusers.
Forgiveness brings darkness to the light and it sets our creative energy free, and that is why all forgiveness is a gift to oneself.
– Write 3 letters to speed up the process of forgiving:
Letter 1: In this letter, write out everything you are angry/sad/resentful about. Give it all! Honour your feelings.
Letter 2: In this letter, write out everything you could be responsible for, to have arrived at your current position. Remember: it would be difficult to write this letter if you haven’t said EVERYTHING there is to say in the first letter.
Letter 3: Acknowledge and thank the person whom you wrote letters to. If you have little to say, go back to the second letter.
– To reset your thoughts by using the power of words (level 2 creation):
Recite this affirmation when you notice your thoughts go back to the past.
“I recognize that I chose the past thoughts. I choose again. I choose forgiveness and it sets me free.”
Roadblock #2 – The Monkey Mind
Clients often ask me: “How do I get to my goals fast?”
My answer is always the same: “Slow down.”
Our mind often lives in regret for the past or anxiety for the future. Our speech and actions then focused on either trying to fix the past or strategizing and controlling the future. It keeps us busy from being present.
The path to presence is to become aware, not to fight the thoughts.
– Notice when you are not present, and take 3 deep breathes. Pay close attention to how your body expands and contracts with the breathing. Do this at least 3 times throughout the day and you will notice your level of stress reduces and your creativity increases. Set alarms to remind yourself.
– Follow guided meditations to help to train the ‘monkey mind’. My all-time favourite is Insight Timer App, which can be downloaded for free.
Be patient and consistent.
As with learning any new skill, increasing your level of creativity which leads to a fulfilling and satisfying life, takes practice.
