Inspiration and Creativity

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

“In my dream the angel shrugged and said, ‘If we fail this time, it will be a failure of our imagination.’ And then she placed the world gently in the palm of my hand.” —Brian Andreas

CREATIVITY IS NOT just for children, artists, or advertising executives. It’s for everyone who wants to live an inspired life of purposeful authenticity. Creativity, inspiration, and enthusiasm are divine gifts that we are intended to use to manage, focus, guide, and instruct our own energy and efforts. Our creative abilities allow us to act on our inspiration as we create both intentionally (consciously) and unintentionally (subconsciously). Because you have a soul, you’ve been hardwired to have all of the creativity you’ll ever need to co-create the life the universe always intended for you to live. This creativity and inventiveness is held within your inspired soul-view, and is intended to be applied to and made manifest in your Earthly life.

Life When It Feels Right: Easier, Natural and Flowing

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Everything in our universe is composed of energy—from our thoughts, feelings, and words, to the chair in which you’re sitting. Until we learn to understand, purify, and heighten our own personal energy vibrations, we will continue to experience disharmony, anxiety, fear, insecurity, and internal uncertainty in our lives. This is far from being a new concept. For centuries, the ancient Chinese concept of Qi (chi) has recognized that every aspect of the universe is comprised of an allpowerful intelligent energy force. Reiki, the centuries-old Japanese technique for healing, relaxation, and stress reduction, maintains that “life force energy” flows through us, keeping us alive. The Chakra system, a concept documented for the first time in the Hindu scriptures known as the Upanishads (1200–900 b.c.), refers to seven major force centers, or chakras, in the human body which serve as focal points for the reception and transmission of energies.

Living with Certainty takes this ancient knowledge and helps you to understand and naturally heighten your energy vibrations, teaching you to think, believe, and act in ways that encourage and improve your life. By learning to create balance and harmony between your mind, body, and spirit, you naturally become skilled at sending energy out to the universe at a high-vibrating frequency. Life becomes easier, unforced, natural, and flowing when you live with certainty.

When you live without certainty, it’s difficult to experience the flow of your spiritual power frequency, because you don’t vibrate energy at the optimal frequency level required for alignment with the flow of Source energy. While you may be able to find financial or material success, it’s unlikely that you will experience the fulfillment and deep-soul joy that comes from living a life in expression of your purposeful authenticity.

Living with Certainty allows you to recognize and act upon the affirming and guiding signs, signals, symbols, and synchronous events that emanate from Source energy, helping you to remain powerfully in the flow of your spiritual power frequency. These signs and synchronicities affirm your path and allow you to co-create and shape your life in alignment with your inspired soul-view.

 

Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou – Oprah Loves/Lives By This Poem

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman

Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Positive, Inspirational Poem by Langston Hughes Recited by Oprah Winfrey Climbing Sydney Harbor Bridge

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

The Langston Hughes poem, “Mother To Son,” captures a positive life perspective, aspirations for the future, and a dream that every child’s life will have its full measure of “crystal stairs.”

Mother To Son

Well, son, I’ll tell you:
Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.
It’s had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor –
Bare.
But all the time
I’se been a-climbin’ on,
And reachin’ landin’s,
And turnin’ corners,
And sometimes goin’ in the dark
Where there ain’t been no light.
So boy, don’t you turn back.
Don’t you set down on the steps
‘Cause you finds it’s kinder hard.
Don’t you fall now –
For I’se still goin’, honey,
I’se still climbin’,
And life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.

- Langston Hughes, 1922
