The Power of Creativity: Why You Should Dare to Create Every Day

I was recently asked to exhibit my art at the Surface Miami Street Art Fest on the Gold Coast, Australia. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that one day, in my forties, I would be exhibiting my art in full length for the world to see. It feels wonderful to share my creativity with others and to transmit the state of joy I experience with every piece of art that gets channeled through me.

I started discovering my creative spirit as a child, I was born with it. In fact I have now come to recognise that we are all born with it. But like many others grew up in an environment and culture that prioritises "survival" and achievement over creative expression and connection to my authentic expression and joy. So I lost it! I lost my relationship with Self and the core expression of who I am in so many ways. I never realised how incredibly healing it could feel to play with colour, to paint and to write. As a child, a teenager and a young adult, I spent much of my time focused on feelings of insecurity that followed by a need to be liked and to belong. I never considered myself to be a creative person and often felt envious of those who confidently walked in the direction of their dreams. It wasn’t until I started to fully comprehend that dependence on the creator within is freedom from all other dependencies that I discovered a part of me that I never knew existed. That’s the beauty with the creative energy that resides within us all. Anything that is born is a creative act, including us. We are creations who are meant to create.

Creative living requires us to make time and space to explore and have a go. As opposed to waiting around until we have enough money, energy, good health or support to do the things that bring us joy. When we allow ourselves to the gift of being a beginner and simply show up for our creativity for the sake of creating, we allow life to surprise us in more ways than one.

When we open ourselves to our creativity, we open ourselves to the creator’s creativity within us.
