Day 23 of My 30 Days of Creativity Challenge!
My life is much different than it was 10 years ago, heck, even a year ago, or a week ago, and even yesterday! I’m always ever evolving, yet I’m still very my simple, cooky self. I know that better things are coming. I believe that because I FEEL it down in my soul. I feeeeeel it in the stirring of my soul.
Meditation is huge for me. So much wisdom and answers have come to me from this place. Aside from my meditation practice, I also do my Morning Pages every day without fail, movement or exercise, and painting or creating. All of these allow for me to a state or the zone which is important when you want to enter flow state. This is such a cool space to be if you have ever experienced it before. So much can be achieved here. I receive many of my answers here, I’m relaxed, and I’m truly happy. Meditation and my gratitude practice has been a game changer for me.
I believe that the time I spend lost in thought while I’m painting, doodling, or whatever allows for me to get lost in thought and activate and engage the right side of my brain. The right brain is where our intuition lives, where our creativity stems from. When you stimulate your creativity and get it to flow, it’s proven that it allows for ALL 5 “happy hormones” to flood your body, and have a lasting effect far after you’re done creating. Dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, oxytocin, endorphins … these are your happy hormones. Harnessing and utilizing your creativity is the easiest and fastest way to get in the zone and to release these happy hormones.
I’m gunning for a life that includes more time for my creative spirit. So … my manifesto. I’m happy now. I was happy then.
If you’re interested in how meditation, creativity, and morning pages can change your life let me know. I’ll be glad to walk that path with you and to lead the way.
