Have you ever wished that you could tap into your creativity more? Maybe you feel like there’s a book inside you, or a screenplay, or a business idea that’s waiting to be birthed. How can you tap into divine inspiration so creativity can flow?
We can go all the way to Italy to get insight on this, by looking to one of the most famous pieces of art in the world: Michelangelo’s David. The David is a 17-foot tall statue that weighs 6 tons, which is the weight of around 90 adults! The David was carved from a single slab of marble which had originally been discarded by other sculptors. In fact, before Michelangelo used it to carve the David, it had been sitting untouched for 40 years.
When Michelangelo was famously asked about his process of carving the David, he said,
“It’s easy. You just chip away at what’s not the David.”
Whether it’s a work of art, piece of writing, business idea, or any type of creative project, you can use Michelangelo’s words as inspiration. Rather than trying to force ideas to come through, you can tap into the divine inspiration that’s already inside you and is waiting for you to bring it forward.
So how do you do this? First, it’s important to realize that you are the universe expressing itself, packed into a body.
You are made of pure creative energy — you cannot not be creative.
You can tap into the divine inspiration within you by bringing your attention to the area below your naval, the area above your naval, and your heart space (also known as the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th chakras). This is the area where you can tap into your true creative nature.
When you want to be more creative, bring your awareness to this part of your body and breathe deeply into this area. Envision these three areas working together as a big oval-shaped space that is constantly alchemizing creative essence from divine inspiration.
The biggest artists who came before us and will come after us are able to powerfully tap into their creative energy because they’re living inside this space (even if they don’t realize it).
By bringing your mind’s attention into this deep reservoir of divine inspiration, creative ideas and new projects will come so much more easily than trying to access them from your mind alone.
This week, practice breathing into your core, and stay open to the inspiration, ideas, and creative nudges that arise when you tap into the beautiful creativity that’s already inside of you.
