The Sacred Process of Creation
When dreams become reality: The world of creation – a process that is both magical and mysterious, and yet so close to our hearts. The act of creation is a sacred process in which we bring forth something new, something that didn’t exist before. Whether it’s a work of art, a piece of music, a new product, or a new life, a new blog post, a new recipe and you name it, creation is the act of bringing something into existence that was only a thought before.
The process of creation is different for everyone, but it all starts with an idea. An idea, a vision, is the spark that ignites the creative flame inside of us.
It’s the starting point that leads us on a journey of discovery, exploration, and realization. It’s the seed that grows into something beautiful and unique, and that has the power to enrich the entire world.
We are all powerful creators.
Especially we, as women, know how to birth things into existence as if by magic.
Women Are Visionaries
Women possess an innate ability to manifest their desires into reality. Our strength lies not only in our physical abilities, but also – and I would claim, particularly in our emotional intelligence, intuition, and creativity. We have the power to overcome obstacles, break down barriers, and pave the way for future generations of women to succeed. Women are the web weavers and the doorkeepers of creation.
From Crashed Visions & Dreams to Powerful Gifts of Creations
Today, I want to talk to all the women who have been doubting themselves and their creativity. To all women who have sought advice and have been disappointed, or told off. Women, who have been derided for their amazing and visionary ideas, and who therefore felt not good enough to go for their vision and dreams.
If you’re reading this, trust that you are not alone. In fact, there are many of us, and that in turn makes it seem that there might be a great potential to unleash some very powerful forces.
And The Power Lies in Keeping the Sacred Visions and Dreams to Ourselves
Let me explain to you – I think you already know, but it’s always good to get a little reminder. So here it is:
During the process of creation, especially in the early stages when things are still raw and vulnerable, it’s important to be selective about whom you share your vision and dreams with. Even the slightest amount of skepticism, objection, or criticism can crush your ideas.
Have you ever been there? Chances are you have.
And I wonder how many awesome things haven’t been created or invented. How many books, poems and songs haven’t been written? How many times we said no to something when it actually was a hell yes, just because we shared our vision with people who themselves never dared to dream big or who simply couldn’t imagine “big”.
As a side note: I had the amazing Kara Johnstad on my podcast where she talked about How to Heal the Inner Artist & the Power of Our Voice, and we talked a lot about the effects of criticism on our art. You’ll love this episode. Tune in after finishing this read.
The Power of Guarding Your Dreams
Here’s the thing, people almost always “judge” from a space of limited perception, from their own perspective, meaning they have a certain set of beliefs based on what they think is possible, based on what they’ve experienced in life so far.
Sadly, some people are very limited in their way of thinking and believing in opportunities, because they simply can’t see it for themselves. It’s not that they don’t wish us the best, they just can’t picture it.
Or another example: some people can actually picture it, but they may talk us out of pursuing our dreams because they don’t want us to change, as that may require them to change as well.
That’s Where Discernment Comes In
So therefore, it’s essential to be discerning about who you allow into your realm of creation and manifestation, as for every women needs to guard what’s sacred to her and who she allows into her world of magic and into her sacred temple.
It’s essential to recognize that immense power. Why? Simply put, not every vision or idea will come to fruition. We all know this. Especially, when you are very artistic and creative person by nature, you’re a source of ideas, and you know not every idea is worth committing to.
Because things change, we change, and our mindsets evolve. Sharing ideas before they’re official can cast a shadow on future creations, leading to disappointment and regret.
Making Time and Space for Our Creations
Therefore, it’s important to allow ourselves the space and time to nurture our visions until they have fully taken root within us. This means taking a step back and reflecting on what truly matters to us, what brings us joy and fulfillment, and what we are willing to commit to. And I’d say that this is one of the most important questions to ponder before we start throwing ourselves into the process of creating: “What am I willing to commit to?”
Then, once we have a solid foundation for our vision, we can then begin to share it with others – if at all, remember there lies a huge power in keeping things to ourselves –, knowing that we have done the necessary groundwork to bring it to life. By doing so, we not only invite collaboration and support from those around us, and increase the likelihood of our vision becoming a reality, but we are also more confident during this time because we have laid the necessary groundwork. So, it’s worth to take the time to cultivate your dreams and keep them close until they are ready to bloom.
Seeking The Right People to Share Your Dreams with
As with everything in life, it’s imperative to have people in your life you can trust and who are supportive, encouraging, and have a growth mindset. These people will help nurture your ideas and provide constructive feedback that will help refine your vision.
It’s also important to remember that not everyone will understand or appreciate your vision, and that’s okay. Stay true to yourself and your ideas. Not always easy, I know, but so necessary.
It’s such a sacred process, and you should never let anyone trample on your dreams.
Plus research has shown that by telling someone about your dreams and goals makes them less likely to happen. I found this short video clip quite empowering. It’s a good reminder.
Your Dreams are Yours Alone
No one else can fully understand the passion and drive behind them. While it’s natural to seek advice and guidance from those we trust, ultimately the decision to pursue our dreams lies within ourselves. If someone is discouraging or belittling your aspirations, it’s crucial to remember that this reflects their own fears and limitations, and not your own potential. So, no matter what: stay steadfast in your vision and surround yourself with those who support and uplift you.
Your dreams are worth fighting for, and you deserve to bring them to fruition.
Ultimately, the process of creation can be a vulnerable and challenging one, where there may be self-doubt and fear, but with the right support system and mindset, anything is possible.
So, choose your confidants wisely, trust your instincts, and keep pushing forward towards your dreams.
