Removing the Mask

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

Longtime readers might notice I haven’t been around much lately. I’ve been writing for the Weekly Awareness Guide but silent on the blog and social media.

Truth be told, I’m looking for inspiration. I’m unsatisfied with the way I’ve been writing and trying to figure out what I really want to do. This snippet from an astrological report by Simon Vorster and Jennifer Langstone explains it well: Continue reading Removing the Mask

Homage to the Creative Spirit

By Paul Levy, Wake Up World

WARNING: This article is designed to activate the creative spirit. Proceed at your own risk!

After my first year of college, I remember wanting to take some time off so that I could figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I had always been a good student, and my parents had high hopes and dreams for my success, so the last thing they wanted was for me to take time off from school.

Remembering that as a little kid I used to love to draw, they suggested that maybe I wanted to take an art class, hoping that this might keep me in school. I decided to take their suggestion and I took a painting class. It came as quite a shock for me when, in this class, I accessed a long-forgotten creative aspect of myself, and realized that not just me, but that everyone, by “our very nature” is creative.

12 Clear Signs You’re Avoiding Your Soul Work & Holding Yourself Back

By Natalie Kent, Collective Evolution

For the last week I have been frustrated beyond belief. Why? I had no idea.

Until I realized that the frustration I was feeling was due to NOT using my full potential in my life and work; to side-stepping my true capacity to create what only I can create.

Let’s take a step back for a minute.

Why do humans create? Buildings, families, businesses, communities… Why do we do it?

Somewhere inside us we feel the pulse of creation, the creative force of the universe that is constantly evolving our reality. Continue reading 12 Clear Signs You’re Avoiding Your Soul Work & Holding Yourself Back

Discover The Daily Creative Flow That Lead To The Success Of Nikola Tesla, Mozart, Van Gogh And Maya Angelou

By Jess Murray, Truth Theory

Success cannot be defined by a simple statement, and nor can it be taught in a simple guidebook. The world contains a vast array of success stories, both past and present, each very different but each also with their own path to follow in order to allow them to get to their pivotal stage of success.

Even when two people discover success they are entirely unique in their own ways. For example, Picasso and Van Gogh are both artistic geniuses, but each followed very different routines to reach their masterpieces. It has been said that “the path to greatness is paved with tiny consistent rituals”. So below is a list of the self-described daily routines of some of the most creative minds in history. Continue reading Discover The Daily Creative Flow That Lead To The Success Of Nikola Tesla, Mozart, Van Gogh And Maya Angelou

4 Ways To Ignite Your Powerful Flow-State Creativity

By Alexa Erickson, Collective Evolution

I think it’s fair to say that we all think creativity is a positive trait to have. Many of us want it, but it can feel hard to unlock when we want it most. We simply don’t know where to start, and science doesn’t exactly know how to train us to be more creative, either. That’s where “flow states” come in.

Flow is defined as an “optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best,” and when we are in flow, “every action, every decision, arises seamlessly from the last.” We become fully present in the moment, so honed in on the task at hand that everything else seems to fade into the background, and our very sense of self ultimately vanishes for a time. Time seems different too, moving either insanely fast or incredibly slow, and our performance excels. Continue reading 4 Ways To Ignite Your Powerful Flow-State Creativity

Everyone has a special brand of creativity — yes, I’m talking to you!

You might not think of yourself as particularly creative — perhaps you think creativity only has to do with the arts?

Not at all. Continue reading Be Amazing! Always Be Creative…

Awaken The Creative Side of your Mind

By Frank M. Wanderer, The Mind Unleashed

We have read and heard a number of times that we do not utilize the full capacity of our brain, only a fragment of the forces of our Mind are used in our daily life. The full utilization of the potentials of our Mind would, however, add to our personality an immense creative force. The question therefore arises, how we are able to access the creative forces of our Mind? Continue reading Awaken The Creative Side of your Mind

Why We Need Creativity

Not only do you as an individual benefit from lateral and imaginative thinking and then manifesting creation through your skill or expertise, but society benefits too.

Can you imagine the world without art, music, literature, hout-cuisine, architecture, landscaping and a host of other delectable contributions that others have provided since time immemorial?

We use art as forms of escape, relaxation, pensivity, contemplation, expansion, bliss and elation.  Who are we, as human beings, without our love of art and creative expansion? Continue reading 5 Amazing Super Powers You’ll Develop When You Get Creative

Writing with Purpose

By Wes Annac, Editor, Culture of Awareness & Openhearted Rebel

Writing is a powerful tool that can be used to entertain, inform, and inspire people to change the world. Regardless of your reason for doing it, writing provides an outlet for you to express yourself and reach an audience of enthusiastic readers.

Research into any area of society (or spirituality) will show that there are plenty of topics to write about. Some topics are considered more important than others, and personally, I often write about things that interest me instead of using every article to search for truth.

For example: I like to write about spiritual topics some readers would think are silly. I consider myself “spiritual”, but I write about them because they interest me; not because I want to convince people they’re true. I’m just having fun and sharing something that could be true or not. You decide.

I enjoy writing about interesting topics, even if I’m the only one who finds them interesting. I also enjoy researching, sharing truth, and calling out the ruling elite. If a topic seems worthy of covering, I’ll give it a shot. Continue reading Writing with Purpose

Ignite Your Inner Creative Passion

By Kyle Wells, BodyMindSoulSpirit.com

 In this world, we are born with innate passions. Passions that draw us to certain subjects, certain ways of learning about the world. These creative passions are the spiritual gifts of “direction”, pointing towards our highest selves in our highest vibrations, our highest dreams. We have been led astray from our passions, and thus this article hopes to inspire those who are estranged from their paths, or have gone weary, through personal experience.

Unfortunately, from the time we start ‘formal’ education, we are taught over-simplified lessons in these intricate and concept subjects, in a way that alienates mass groups of children, conditioning them to stress and disgust. For instance, anyone discussing math is usually met with adverse reactions, sour faces, and the infamous “Ugh, I HATE math, I’m so BAD at it!” What is unfortunate, is that math opens up a whole world of numerical data to support every existing (and ‘non-existing’) thing. It is the transcription of the universe. Continue reading Ignite Your Inner Creative Passion
