Openhearted Creativity

Written by Wes Annac, The Aquarius Paradigm

Here, I’d like to look at creativity as perceived from a higher-dimensional standpoint. Is creativity produced in the mind, or is there a much deeper force behind our creative endeavors that increases the beauty and intricacy of the things we bring into the world?

Should we try to force our minds into a creative state and hold our art to a rigorous standard, or should we let it flow and turn out however it may? Personally, I’ve had trouble creating from a purely intellectual place, and every time I do, I’m reminded to turn within and let the heart-centered flow take over.

We have to get out of our own way if we want to enable the flow that helps us create, because creating through a narrow, mental lens makes the work less pure and the process less enjoyable. We’re intended to enjoy the creative process, but working from the mind will put an air of self-oppression around our work that diminishes the liberation we feel when we’re doing it.

Creativity is a beautiful and important thing, and the world will change when everyone sees this. Being creative opens the channels of our heart and enables us to receive impressions from beyond the veil, and the most receptive artists and musicians out there can probably attest to the higher vibration their art puts them on.

Personally, I’ve noticed that the mind’s a huge inhibitor of any real or valuable creative flow. Moving beyond its influence can be pretty hard, but when we do, we’re able to let its woes and concerns go as we access and work with the wisdom and creativity of the heart space.

As we’ll learn, from a higher perspective, creativity’s something that comes purely from the heart. The mind can’t produce a significant, divinely inspired creation, and this is why we’re encouraged to move beyond its influence if we really want tocreate and enjoy the creative process.

We have to enjoy the things we’re doing if we want them to be successful, and instead of inhibiting our heart-centered flow by exerting too much mental influence over our work, I think we should let the mind go completely and look toward the heart to help us with everything we create.

We open up to a higher perception when we let heart take over, creatively or in general, and we increase our overall level of joy. We move into an expanded state of mind that enables us to enjoy the creative process, and without this expansion and our receptivity to a deeper influence, we might be unenthusiastic about our work.

As usual, I’d like to look at some of the things our channeled sources have told us about this subject. You don’t have to believe in the quotes we’ll read, but in my opinion, they offer a wealth of genuine and important advice on this subject and I happily look to them to support our efforts to raise awareness about it.

To begin, the Arcturian Group through Marilyn Raffaele tells us that the brain will only ever create from what’s already known.

“Many believe that the brain is creative, and struggle to create with it, but anything created on that level will always flow from what is already known – the matrix of world consciousness. A person can change the form somewhat, but it will remain in and of what is already known and therefore never new.” (1)

We have to open up to the subtle but powerful stream of energy and guidance we’re being given from the heart if we want to create from an expanded space, and if we continue to let the mind influence us, we won’t do anything but rehash thoughts and ideas in a dull and uninspired way.

Passion is one of the keys to accessing the flow and enjoying the things we do, and without it, we’re left with uninspired numbness, which, speaking from experience, doesn’t feel very good.

We’re also told that even though it can be difficult to find, we’re never without our true creativity.

“True creativity flows forth from a deeper level – an infinite creative source within you, and thus its creations are always new and fresh having never before manifested. Creativity is never limited to education, status, income, job, etc., for all are in and [of] Source and all thus have access.

“You can never be without your creativity, for it is you, and new ideas of every form and variety will begin to flow forth as you open to and allow it.” (2)

As long as we seek it, creativity will find us no matter who we are or what we’ve done in life. The creative flow can’t come to us if we try to force it or question the things it brings through us, and I think it’s important to be in a constant allowing state when we open up to it.

The mind will get us to question the things the flow brings through, but when we move into a state of allowance, we won’t strive or question as much. We’ll simply go with the flow and let whatever comes, come. I feel very little attachment to these words I write them, and if I was attached, I’d fall into a state of mind-centered difficulty.

I’m still learning how to properly facilitate the heart-centered flow, and I, like plenty of other spiritually inclined writers, will probably still face lessons centered on letting the mind’s influence dissolve and allowing what comes forth to be expressed without reservation or judgment.

We’re then encouraged to go within and acknowledge our connection with Source often if we want to attain the flow that enables our greater creativity.

“Pause often to stop and go within, silently acknowledging your Oneness with all that is. This opens the door and allows whatever ideas you are in need of, to flow forth. Art, music, or literature brought forth only from the brain, is limited to whatever is already known and is easily recognized in uninspiring music or books.” (3)

We can tell when something’s made from a dull or uninspired place, and if we try too hard to be creative, we’ll evoke the ego and dim the purity of our art. Ultimately, we’re channeling when we act on the creative flow, and we’ll open up to the divine in a similar way as many channelers when we understand this.

We’re all energy receivers and transmitters, and what we bring through depends entirely on what we seek. If we hold ourselves up in the mind and seek only from an ego-driven space, our creations will be rather flat or dull. Instead of letting this happen, I think we should strive to produce everything we do from the heart in an unfiltered way.

Some of our creations will inevitably be filtered by the mind to a degree, but as long as we continue to strive for purity, we’ll eventually attain it.

A lot of people who create from the mind often wonder why their work doesn’t seem so fresh, as the Arcturian Group tells us below, and those of us who are aware of the flow can understand that it’s because the mind is the receptor, not the producer, of creativity.

“Many sincere hard working artists are unaware of this principle. Believing that they create from their brain, they don’t understand why they are only drawing forth what is already known with occasional glimpses at true creativity…” (4)

I’d imagine it can be frustrating to gain small, continuous creative glimpses followed by mind-driven void moments that seem impossible to break out of, but our uncreative moments are catalysts that are intended to help us move out of the mind and into the flow of the heart.

Coping with writer’s block is probably difficult for the people out there who don’t grasp the spiritual significance of the things they create, and we’re fortunate to receive so much helpful guidance about this and myriad other important subjects.

We’re also reminded that creativity isn’t limited to music or art and that new ideas are presented to us in every area of life.

“Creativity is not limited to the arts, but is true of every new and heretofore unknown idea that comes into manifestation. Scientific breakthroughs come forth not from the brain, but through a well trained and scientifically educated brain, and often seeded by scientific minds on the other side working to help mankind evolve…” (5)

Intelligent, spiritual scientists on the other side influence the minds of prominent scientists on our world today, and I’ve said before that it’d be amazing if every incarnate scientist was open to the influence of intelligent souls beyond the veil.

Can you imagine how great it’d be if our modern scientists were in touch with Albert Einstein? We might be able to learn a wealth of important and amazing things that’d accelerate our evolution. I look forward to the time when everyone’s open to the greater spiritual influences out there, because they’ll help us expand our current limited paradigm.

We’re then given some great advice in regards to moving beyond the mind and creating from the heart.

“Everyone has creativity within them because it is who and what you really are – creators. Learn to get out of your own way, away from forcing the brain to create. Artists, sit in front of your blank canvas and just begin…no thinking, allowing the work to unfold.” (6)

We can take as much time as we need to sit blankly at our respective canvases before we get to work, creating away with the influence of the heart. Even though forcing the creative flow is easy, we’ll curtail it if we do. We have to let it come in doses we can handle, even if they’re small, and we have to be as receptive to them as possible.

If we try to force the flow, we’ll squeeze out a bunch of mind-centered gibberish that won’t help us do the things we really want to do. Moving beyond the influence of the ego will lead us to open up to the heart-centered flow in a much less inhibited way than trying to force it ever will.

In our final quote, we’re told that the more we realize the mind’s inability to produce a significant creation, the more we’ll tap into the flow that enables us to create wonderful things and enjoy ourselves in the process.

“The more this truth is realized, the more it will manifest outwardly as the creativity you are seeking. Mind translates your state of consciousness into whatever forms are personal, necessary, and understandable for you. Never compare, for that which represents completeness for you may not be considered completeness for another.” (7)

Our journey – evolutionary and creative – is never complete. We might learn something valuable today and feel like we have it all figured out, but tomorrow, we’ll be introduced to something entirely new that’ll change everything.

In all things, we’re encouraged to go with the flow and let our mental pressure and judgment fall away. We’re encouraged to let the heart take over when it comes to joyfully creating divinely inspired art, and our mind’s only intended to be a receptor for this brimming creativity.

Learning to surrender the mind and go with the heart-centered flow will enable us to experience a wealth of creative gifts, and as long as we take the pressure off of ourselves, we’ll start creating wonderful works of art that that we wouldn’t expect ourselves to be able to create.

We’re capable of much more than we think, and releasing our mind-centered tension will help us realize or true capabilities and the fact that we’re divine beings who can do and be anything. We aren’t limited in any way, but our belief in limitation has kept us from accessing the abilities beyond our current perception – the creativity-boosting flow of the heart being one.

When we surrender to the guidance the heart space is giving and flow from there, everything will become much simpler and more understandable. We just have to take that first, difficult step, and when we do, we’ll start our long and worthwhile journey back to the fullness and vibrancy of the open heart space.

Wes Annac – Happy to encourage openhearted creativity.
