Do you feel like your insides are being squeezed? As if your current creative expression is too small for what you want to share with the world?
Expand Your Creative Expression
It’s important to know when your creative expression is ready for a different canvas.
Is there a new aspect of yourself you want to explore? Perhaps you are drawn to get involved in the political arena, in the arts. Or to change your career or to live in another country.
Are you ready to expand your venue to a different or unfamiliar audience?
Notice if you feel a greater call to be out in the world. There are times when your expression and energy are needed. You may feel an inner urge to try something new.
Is your voice ready to be heard in different ways, perhaps in new places?
Resistance is Natural
It is natural to feel some inner resistance to doing something unfamiliar. After all, you are venturing into unfamiliar land. Yet if you rely on past experience to define who you are, you’ll never discover what is possible.
Realize that once you have expressed a vision, it becomes outdated. You can’t give the same speech, year after year. It’s why I could only teach classes that I created for a limited time. Then I had to go on: something new was waiting to manifest.
When you step into the unknown a new vision starts to take shape.
Allow yourself to explore and experiment. Watch what draws your attention. Ask yourself if there is something you need to do in this new arena. Your willingness to expand your comfort zone opens the door to more of your possibilities.
Then your potential becomes a reality.
Expectations Be Damned!
Let go of any expectations about how you will perform, or how you will be received. Look at how you feel and how your body responds as you put yourself out in this new way. Continually update your picture of yourself.
As the adventurer, you build new experiences. You open doors to new opportunities, expanding your vision.
Aren’t you ready to act on a new stage in life?
Take a breath. Release it. Take another. Devote some dedicated time of concentration/meditation to this. It doesn’t need to be hours of quiet, perhaps only 15 minutes. Then allow the question to simmer within you. Let responses bubble up into your awareness. Notice new ways of thinking, of images or ideas that arise spontaneously. Pay attention to your dreams. Let it happen. Be aware. See where it leads you next. Let yourself savor this process of receiving from yourself. Don’t judge whatever comes up, just receive it. Make notes.
I invite you to share something from this process. Sharing is an important way to anchor an insight in your body. It leads you to deeper insight. It stimulates action.
