“If deep down in your heart, you love to sing and you never use your voice, it will speak louder in your subconscious, questioning your sense of self. If you love to write stories or poetry and you never put ink on the page, you’re going to feel that unused talent scratching away at you within.
Thoughts, emotions, and creativity are all forms of energy. Energy is meant to keep moving and when we stop its flow and keep it stuck, it intensifies. If we keep this up and keep it in for too long, that stale energy can wreak havoc spiritually, mentally and emotionally. And this stress definitely takes its toll on our bodies.” Chris Assaad, from Share Your Truth and Set Yourself Free!
I recently heard Dr. Brené Brown say that creativity unexpressed doesn’t remain dormant in our bodies but that it becomes toxic as unreleased energy. She also believes there aren’t “creative and uncreative” people in the world but rather those with the courage to be vulnerable and share and those who succumb to fear. I believe we all vacillate between the two extremes based on the choices we make from day-to-day and moment to moment.
When we choose not to develop and share our creativity in any given moment we license over to fear the highest part of our connection with SPIRIT (i.e., our ability to CREATE in the image and likeness of the ultimate CREATOR). And when we chronically hand our divinity over to fear in this way, day after day, our lives reflect and manifest our creative stagnation.
