Added value resource: Creativity

creativity-mindset

One of the deepest resources hampered in society today is creativity.  Creativity is a resource that adds value, increases worth, adds growth and presents opportunity.

You see, in order to reach new heights, succeed in achieving new goals, break through barriers, you’ll need a strong commitment to your creativity.  This applies to corporations, as well as business and personal living.  My formula for Creativity is Commitment + Passion = Power.  It is this power, generated by passion and commitment that steers the course to your vision, the path you set out on to achieve your desired outcome.  Interestingly enough, creativity is related to the 2nd chakra, abundance, sexuality, joy and pleasure.

Let me introduce you into my world.  A world where joy, pleasure, passion, play, abundance and creativity design and lead. A world where your ability to create something through commitment and passion, bring forth joy and happiness.  The true nature of abundance and sexuality give and receive more life to all.

So where do you begin? First, what are you willing to be committed to. Begin with one thing.  Understand distractions, negativity, self doubt, outsiders opinions and every excuse imaginable will show up in your face. That’s called lack, limitation, excuses, and a whole host of defending your inaction and not taking responsibility. This view opens your commitment to a childlike wonder perspective, opportunity! Opportunity shows up to challenge you.  To rise above the status quo and take action, even when you are afraid.  Commitment brings in creativity, which gives you the opportunity to build something new. This is where one of my favorite gifts lies, resourcefulness. Resourcefulness has no limits.  It teaches creativity, accountability, vulnerability, clarity, trust, perseverance and most importantly, belief in one’s self, Self Love- gratification, joy and humility. In order to move beyond the chatter, and current limits you will need to cultivate a practice of resourcefulness.  Money, time and energy can’t buy resourcefulness.  Imagination, quality time alone and with the ones you love, meditation, reading, day dreaming, journaling, doing activities that inspire you, and spending time building that which you desire, your passion builds resourcefulness.

Now back to “what are you willing to be committed to”.  I mentioned commitment + passion= power, and I just spoke about resourcefulness and it’s connection to passion. You, and only you, must invoke your power and resourcefulness to achieve new results, new outcomes. And, that is where your goal lies, isn’t it?

Let me share with you some of the side effects of resourcefulness: fun, joy, happiness, success, focus, tenacity, playfulness, and there you find~ creativity.

So where is the problem?  The problem is “out there”.  It’s in the disbelief, the judgement & unkindness from others towards your happiness and joy.  It’s in the current limitations around you in the environments that show you it hasn’t been done.  The problem is “in there”, in your mind, your feelings of not being able to, not being good enough, not raised that way, not motivated, essentially, not believing in yourself.

Creativity has been hampered. It has been devalued. It has been traded in for statistics, a one size fits all, brand. Yet when inspired, invoked, and celebrated it’s your creativity that gives you joy, pleasure and happiness like no other.  Creativity is unique.  It is purposeful and gives meaning to your passions, and the way you spend your time, energy and money. It’s how you build, create and enjoy all aspects of your life.

If you’re inspired to create changes within your life or business in the new year, through your commitment + passion= power, and uncover your creativity for more joy, pleasure, and happiness, come work with me in the Clarity Package! Email me at monica@priestessofpassion.com

Internal ambition, your blueprint for success

Award_adaptive_768

Internal ambition and external ambition

Ambition, when directed for growth, an increase in life, can be either directed from a point of influence of internal ambition or external ambition.  The strongest, best gift you can give yourself, your children, your co-workers, employees and team members is your own sense of internal ambition.

Internal ambition is fueled by your own sense of commitment, discipline, creativity, self expression and true joy for setting your sights on a goal and striving.  It’s cultivated through a practice of focus, and belief in ones self.  Internal ambition builds leadership. You see, we are built to strive for more. We are built to trust in our gifts, our desires and chart a course to move us forward.

External ambition is doing things for the sake of getting something in return. It is based on having to do something, or just doing something because of what you get. There may be a lack of passion, or a need to get something, without a sincere joy for the task at hand.  With external ambition you can sense more stress or fears, negatives, even though the goal and outcome to attain is positive.

The true beauty in internal ambition is to see what you are made of.

I believe it’s essential for people to have goals that stretch them to grow. A feeling, a desire of accomplishing something that lights your soul on fire. And, I believe having the right people around to support you in this internal ambition is a non-negotiable.  You see, what I love about internal ambition is the way you create changes in your life, that ask you to show up, to feel and check into your heart.  As I mentioned above, having goals, desires and striving to add value to your life, brings you through new tasks, taking on new activities, and facing challenges, that once held you back, small or feeling powerless. The feeling you receive from the accomplishment, that is the ultimate reward. You gain confidence and self esteem, priceless accolades for yourself that no one gave to you, you earned it through your commitment, desire and hard work.

External ambition has a focus on the outcome whether it be for money, status, title, or recognition. None of these are bad or wrong, there is just not as much sustenance in the reward.

The feeling of success comes through the work, the practice, belief in self, it is earned by your self.

Internal ambition capitalizes on what you want to achieve. It may ask of you to risk.  To take a chance on something that is intangible, yet with hard work, focus and discipline you will achieve. Driven by passion, embraced by your heart and spirit, taking your time, small actionable steps soon become bigger bolder moves that say, yes, I just accomplished that on the way to my goal adding to your pocket of gold.

As the year comes to a close, take some time to focus on what you want to achieve in the new year. Something that comes from your heart, a little crazy or risky, that makes your heart sing. Listen for your internal ambition, the why you want it and how it makes you feel. Listen. Feel.

Dig into your untapped treasure chest of desires, and just believe, internal ambition will be the light to move you forward.

Expansion. Expanding and crossing thresholds

 

Expansion isn’t a word you hear everyday in relation to your spirituality or health, yet expansion is an essential part of growth and progress.  The concept of expansion from a Spiritual standpoint is opening for the new to give way, to stay open, letting go of perceived notions or beliefs.  Expansion, actually, opens to the light. It reaches, stretches and knows, the light provides the necessary nourishment and nutrients for the next stage of growth.

From the beginning of life, expansion shows up in the form of a woman’s uterus and body, expanding with child. During the time of childbirth, expansion happens again, when the birth canal and vagina expands for the baby, crossing through it’s threshold.

That Is, how we are designed to go through life, expanding and crossing thresholds.

So what do we need to understand about expansion to help us live richer, calmer, fuller, more satisfying lives?

Let’s begin with, it’s not the expansion that scares us.  It’s not understanding how the application of expansion works in our favor, how it works.

Expansion will happen every time we set ourselves up to grow, to make change. There will be steps required to take, along with centering and grounding and decisions to make. It’s in these decisions, you move toward the light, opening more and more in expansion. Your decisions will be based on the present, where you are and where you are going. It’s this conscious choice of Now, that expansion happens.  This is a non-negotiable for your growth, transformation and true change to be real and lasting.

The beauty of expansion is how you mature, grow and gain through the process. More light, more love- expansion opens you, softens you and shows your true power.

Expansion challenges all parts of us, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. The greater sense of calm and clarity you have, the simpler it is to identify how to go about your expansion and stay focused towards the growth and changes you seek.

Let’s take a more precise look at what occurs in the stage of expansion. Expansion is taking action towards the new.   It brings down a shedding of the old, just like a flower reaching for the sunlight, blooming, letting go of the delicate and protective covering. Before it releases the covering and protection, take note of this, it does not let anything in! In it’s most essential phase of expansion, right before it is ready to drop its protective cover it does not let anything in, that will disturb it’s path of growth.  For you, this means you are required to have focus, precision, trust, stillness and patience plus good boundaries.  Make no mistake, this can feel intense, being in this place of in between, where your trust and faith must be greater than your fear and disbelief.

And, this is how it works in your favor.  It teaches you to grow, stretch and believe in that which is brightest and boldest, your passion and your true power to create and believe. It asks of you to show up with nothing less than your best. You see, expansion requires you, not time, energy or money. Expansion, is you letting go of the old, stretching with faith and trust in what you have been nurturing, placing your resources towards.

The actual expansion, is the process of unfolding.

Hold your vision. Hold your faith with power, conviction and love.
