Do you feel a tension deep within your navel, right where the sacral chakra is? Have you ever felt this way when you experience a creative block? Is your mind overwhelmed with thoughts and pressure to perform a certain task, get something done quickly?
We are all naturally creative beings but sometimes we get stuck in a rut and our creativity can temporarily dry up. As an artist, writer, designer you likely draw inspiration from within and flow with it, but there are days when stress and cluttered thoughts take over and the inspiration comes to a full-stop.
That's where meditation comes in. Meditation has been linked with stress reduction, improved focus, memory, and finding the willpower to toss out negative habits. Meditating for just 5 minutes can reset inspiration and ignite the passion within to create, often times afterward you may experience a burst of energy and the ideas should start flowing again like a river.
A Simple Meditation For Creativity
Find a quiet place to sit with your eyes closed bring your attention to your sacral chakra, that's the area around your navel.
As you breathe, inhale and visualize creativity flowing from the universe through your sacral chakra.
When you exhale imagine creativity growing from this area spreading throughout your entire body.
When you find clarity and a sense of peace say the following affirmation.
I am grateful for the infinite source of creativity I have within, my creative energy flows around me, through me, and beyond. I am a radiant source of inspiration within the universe.
Gently pay attention to your breath on each exhalation. Thoughts will intervene and when they do, simply let them go and repeat the affirmation.
A balanced Solar Plexus is a powerhouse for the soul, optimism are there to shine through with Rutilated Quartz and Tigers Eye.
