Unlock Your Creativity: Connecting To Our Creative Nature

As we travel the road of Ascension, more and more people will inevitably embrace their creative nature, however that expresses itself for each individual; it could be through dancing, writing, painting, singing, speaking, etc. With this also come challenges, as the world we lived in didn’t really facilitate the flow of creativity. However, this is changing fast. The feminine aspect within each one of us is awakening and becoming stronger, balanced harmoniously by the masculine. From a higher perspective, these two are not only balancing, but are merging into One, which can only lead to harmony in all ways. That is a “side effect” of our merging with the Soul, which I am sure many of you are going through, whether aware or unaware of this process.

This unification is more tangible than ever and it will become clearer to more people due to the “veils thinning”. The universe supports it as well, hence the venusian energy we are going to experience by the end of the month, which brings the goddess aspect, the creative nature at the surface.

This month of July has a great potential for the emergence of any kind of Soul expression, depending on each individual’s creative abilities. It is most important to allow the flow of whatever comes through, to be a clear channel, so I feel like adressing the blockages that we might hold against it. The challenges around Soul expression are inevitable for some, as they were chosen by their own selves to grow through and expand, but the awareness can make the challenge, less challenging. 11701151_10153546135112975_3741302259338589657_n

Common blocks to the flow of creativity are:

Mental Blocks – This can be anything from self-doubt, being too critical of yourself, being a perfectionist to limitating thought patterns such as “I can’t do this, I can’t do anything” etc. The key to releasing mental blocks in most cases is becoming self-observervant. Observe  your thoughts without engaging and alchemize them by connecting to your heart’s deepest truths, which in this case is your unlimited creative potential. Know your heart’s truths, discover your potential and don’t let the mind sabotage you on the way. Have the mind on your side, it can become the greatest ally once you bring presence/awareness into the now.

• Emotional Blocks – This is the emotional resistance such as fear of any kind, unworthiness or even unconscious (or conscious) self-sabotaging, not loving yourself enough to do what you enjoy. Many people do that silly thing unconsciously as there are a lot of self-love related “issues” deeply ingrained in the psyche. However, we have to opportunity this month to change that as Venus retrograde will remind us of the importance and joy of truly loving yourself as you are and all you are. The “ugly” emotions are quite uncomfortable to feel, but feeling is exactly the solution to emotional blocks. The only way up is through. Feel whatever needs to be felt, feel the deepest darkest emotions, as each teach us something and let them go for they served their purpose. At times, these emotions are pointing you towards deeper hidden programming stored in your cellular memory, it could be either from childhood or other lifetimes. Observe and if you feel guided to, go deeper, find the root and transmute it from there once and forever.

Procrastination – This is sometimes a result of supressed emotions that can instill a lethargic state, which is an emotional block that I’ve explained above, but at the same time it could be a matter of lacking motivation and just being lazy. There are many ways you can motivate yourself and get yourself out of the lazy state. This is all depending on the individual to discover the way it works for them and be willing to push themselves out of the procrastination mode. Discovering the Soul’s true passions are most likely to help us become more active.

Old ways of working – We have to find the balance between making a schedule that works for us, organising our time and energy in an effective, practical way and going with the flow. This is again your job to find out how you function best, what your priorities are, organise in a way that you are not overwhelmed and exhausted by everything. At the same time this needs to be balanced by allowing things to unfold on their own, without limiting or resisting the creative flow, but surrender to it, so a certain flexibility is needed. It is you who have to find that balance to be able to apply it in your life.

Focus – At times, with everything going on within and without, it is hard to maintain your focus, so it’s extremely important to sit with yourself when feeling so, take a few deep breaths and get centered, connected, focused and grounded. This is not a block, but it is a challenge. A lot of self-mastery is required to maintain a higher vibration and frequency during “shifty” times and creativity will not flow freely and purely from Source, when your state of being is not aligned with it. Be aware, be observant in the now and shift your focus. Energy flows where attention goes.

Not being prospere – I’m not only referring to money, but abundance in general. I’ve noticed that many times people are not able to express their creativity due to lack of material things or knowledge or any other type of lack. This is another huge block, which requires a longer writing, but basically, we create our own reality. We have to transcend the “poverty consciousness” into abundance consciousness. We have to dissolve any outdated belief system, perception, perspective, programming related to lack. It is a major one for the Collective and it is a process that can’t happen over night as we have so many deeply ingrained social programming in the unconscious. However, July brings this fertile energy with it, the energy of abundance, prosperity. Plant seeds through intentions and allow them to blossom. A more detailed article on abundance will be up on the site soon so stay tuned for that one.

Energetic Blocks – We have to take responsability for our energy. That implies becoming more aware of energy and mastering it. There are many ways of unblocking “stagnant” energy, one of my favourite one being using the violet flame. You can find a lot of information about that on the website and many other ways to cleanse, transmute, purify, balance etc. You can do some research if you feel guided to.

With all that being said, creativity and the exploration of our creative nature can open pathways for us that we could only dream about until now. Creativity, when flowing freely through as, when we are embodying it and expressing it passionately, is pure joy, it will catapult you into a state of bliss. It is ultimately pure creation. Play. Create. Enjoy!

The Gayatri Mantra – Mantra Of Increased Wisdom, Spiritual Growth & Development

Gayatri Mantra (the mother of the vedas), the foremost mantra in hinduism and hindu beliefs, inspires wisdom. Its meaning is that “May the Almighty God illuminate our intellect to lead us along the righteous path”. The mantra is also a prayer to the “giver of light and life” – the sun (savitur).

Oh God! Thou art the Giver of Life,
Remover of pain and sorrow,
The Bestower of happiness,
Oh! Creator of the Universe,
May we receive thy supreme sin-destroying light,
May Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.

Gayatri, the five-faced Goddess, is said to have domain over the five senses or pranas, and protects these five life-forces of those who chant the Gayatri Mantra. In her role as the protector, Gayatri is referred to as Savitri.

Origin of the Gayatri Mantra

The Vedas are widely considered to be the source of all true knowledge, the word “Veda” itself meaning “Knowledge”. Gayatri Devi also gave to mankind the “Gayatri Mantra”, also known as the “Guru Mantra” or the “Savitri Mantra”. It is one of the oldest mantras, and generally thought of as being amongst the highest and most powerful mantras of all. This mantra is therefore often referred to as “the Mother of the Vedas”. In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna had proclaimed to Arjuna – “Among all the mantras, I am the Gayatri”.

Chanting of the Gayatri Mantra

The ideal times for chanting the mantra are three times a day – at dawn, mid-day, and at dusk. These times are known as the threesandhyas – morning, mid-day and evening. The maximum benefit of chanting the mantra is said to be obtained by chanting it 108 times. However, one may chant it for 3, 9, or 18 times when pressed for time.

Rishis selected the words of the Gayatri Mantra and arranged them so that they not only convey meaning but also create specific power of righteous wisdom through their utterance. Chanting of Gayatri Mantra removes all obstacles in our path to increased wisdom and spiritual growth and development. The teachings and powers incorporated in the Gayatri Mantra fulfill this purpose. Righteous wisdom starts emerging soon after Jap(recitation) of the Gayatri Mantra is performed.

The syllables of the mantra are said to positively affect all the chakras or energy centres in the human body – hence, proper pronunciation and enunciation are very important. Sathya Sai Babateaches that the Gayatri Mantra “will protect you from harm wherever you are, make your intellect shine, improve your power of speech, and dispel the darkness of ignorance (Dhiyoyonah prachodayaath)”.

Word for Word Meaning of the Gayatri Mantra

The Gayatri Mantra is unique in that it embodies the three concepts of stotra (singing the praise and glory of God), dhyaana (meditation) and praarthana (prayer).

Aum = Brahma ;
bhoor = embodiment of vital spiritual energy(pran) ;
bhuwah = destroyer of sufferings ;
swaha = embodiment of happiness ;
tat = that ;
savitur = bright like sun ;
varenyam = best choicest ;
bhargo = destroyer of sins ;
devasya = divine ;
these first nine words (stotra describe the glory of God
dheemahi = may imbibe ; pertains to meditation
dhiyo = intellect ;
yo = who ;
naha = our ;
prachodayat = may inspire!
“dhiyo yo na prachodayat” is a prayer to God

Significance of Gayatri Mantra as Prayer

The Gayatri Mantra occupies a unique place in that it has both the power of mantra and of prarthana (prayer). A mantra may be articulate or inarticulate, or a combination of them, as with AUM. It has an inherent power, known as “Mantra shakti”, which has a positive influence not due to any philosophical meaning behind the mantra, but simply due to its utterance alone. The Gayatri mantra has both an intrinsic power (ie “mantra shakti”), through its mere utterance alone, and also an instrumental power (ie “prarthana shakti”), which is derived from the understanding of its meaning and philosophical significance. Hence, the repeated and correct chanting of the Gayatri Mantra, with proper understanding of its meaning, is believed to be of the greatest good to the individual. (Details of each syllable can be found in the Gayatri by Words article)

The prayer form of the Gayatri takes various forms. The Gayatri Mantra is also known as the Savitri Mantra, in which form, it is invoked as a salutation to the Sun. The form that can be used to pray to Lord Shiva is called Rudra Gayatri. Similarly, one may sing Ganesha Gayatri for Lord Ganesha,Hanuman Gayatri for Lord Hanuman, and Saraswati Gayatri for Goddess Saraswati.
