Can you surrender to NOT creating?
I've moved onto the second trust chakra of CREATE in the new book...and it was really easy for me to see where we don't always trust ourselves enough to just create, to just do that inspired thing. That when we surrender to our natural tendency to be creative beings we allow magic to infuse our lives.
But it was really surprising when I sat down to write today, because the opposite message started pouring out of me-and I started experiencing it immediately...do you trust yourself enough NOT to create?
I thought this would be the easiest section to write because I'm a natural implementor. I'd call implementation my super power. Talking about surrendering to your urges to create and do-well that's easy.
I get lots of ideas, lots of inspiration...and it's easy for me to follow the carrot. I follow quickly and with total trust. Even when the carrot is made of non-organic high fructose corn syrup (if that's a thing).
See it's never the urge to create I mistrust, it's the idea that if I don't follow the urge it will go away and never come back.
And there was the breakthrough I needed for this section - there's where I have had to consciously build my trust muscles in this area. Do I trust myself and my own creative soul to not have to follow every hair brained or brilliant idea that comes to me? Can I thank the ideas and ask that they wait a little until the timing feels divine? Or can I simply say no thank you for now?
Surrendering to the urge to create is just as viable as surrendering to the urge to not create, to give myself permission to walk away when it's not in full alignment, or when it's not what I'm creating right now. It's okay so set it aside and trust that the next thing to do or the next thing you create will be right and perfect
even if it's not that idea that woke you in the middle of the night
even if you feel like it all needs to get done today
even if you feel like you've been not doing for so long that you'll forget what it's like to actually do
even if you should be working
Two ways of surrendering to the same thing. Two ways to trust yourself a little deeper. And two ways for me to dove into that one section of the book...tomorrow, because today I trust that I'm just letting me feel into the section just a little deeper.
