The 12 Secrets – Secret 2

India big 2 Pictures, Images and Photos

Today is about honoring our inspirations.

I will share my answers to the questions in this chapter.

When did your creative awakening or reawakening occur? I like to think I have always been creative. I would always find a way to occupy myself with very little.

What talents do you have naturally? Making the best of what I have at hand. Being able to put together a meal or dish with whatever is at hand. Being intuitive and knowing how to follow my heart/inner star leading me to helping others follow theirs.

Which elements (fire, water, wood, air) draw you toward them? Hmm, all of them. I believe they all contribute to a harmonious life.

What activates your creative energy, and what drains it? Life in all its nuances is my inspiration. I am stubborn and unstoppable when I want to create.

Do you use creative rituals? I love writing down my ideas and inspirations.  I also ask for divine guidance. It works wonders.

Does Nature influence your creativity? Absolutely. I am thankfully surrounded by it. I would be like someone lost in the desert without water without it.

What has been your greatest creative hurdle so far? Love this question! As I am stepping up in my career I am looking for the most authentic way to put myself out there. One that has ME written all over it.

What time of day are you most receptive to inspiration? ALL the time. I have found though that I have some of my greatest inspiration at 4 am in the morning.

I always associated being creative with being an artist as in  you had to create music, buildings, paintings etc. I now consider everyone an artist. We are the Creator of  the masterpiece of our  own lives.  All of us are special. We are here foremost to honor and be ourselves. For within our uniqueness lies the very gifts we are seeking. Here is to the gifts in each one of you. YOU are SPECIAL!
