Five Affirmations: Take Your Creativity to the Next Level

Recently I posted five creative affirmations for you.  Little did you know, they were just to get you started.  Here are five more written to help you affirm your creative soul and take your work to a new level. In creating, we have to remember three important facts:

  • Creativity is YOUR birthright. No one has the right to take it from you. If you feel someone has, at some point in your life, taken your creativity away from you, then now is the time to TAKE IT BACK!
  • It is about the Process not the product. We have a habit of judging the final product without acknowledging the process that it took to get as far as we did. This is a mistake. The process is the only way to improve product. Accept the product as it is, then evaluate the process.
  • Unused creativity is dangerous. One of my fave quotes from Brene’ Brown is “Unused creativity is not benign.” She then goes on to list some of the side affects of unused creativity such as depression, anxiety, overwork, loss of spirituality, etc. Treating it in a negative manner with negative comments is also just as deadly to creativity. We end up talking ourselves out of being creative.

The affirmations below are meant to help you focus your creativity energy into more productive and in depth use of your creativity. Affirmations work only if you believe in them and if they are practiced on a regular basis. Without practice and belief, repeating affirmations may do nothing for us at all or even backfire. Be ready to take your creativity up a level, and dig into it. Just remember to practice what you are saying. There is no change without the work required to make it happen. Let’s go! 

 

 

It is YOURS! Own It. Don't let anyone take it from you.
It is YOURS! Own It. Use it! Don’t let anyone take it from you.

 

However you use it, no manner the form you choose, you get to enjoy it. Love it. Play with it. It deserves your expression of it even if no one else in the whole world sees what you create, it needs to be expressed.

Acceptance. It simply means we can look and accept our work as it is without passing "good" or "bad" judgement on it. You owe it yourself and your creative soul.

Your process and how you express your creativity is more important than the final product. It is only in evaluating the process that you can improve the product.

It is easy to fall into the trap of wanting to say what we did was horrible, bad, not worthy. We have developed these habits from years of schooling telling us that we should evaluate our work this way. Instead, change come when we think in constructive and objective ways. Look at what went right and what didn't work. Don't label good or bad. Be kind to yourself. You just put your creative soul out there, give it a break. If you need to, take it to someone you can trust with it and ask them to help you look at it in an objective manner.
