Creativity should be our natural state of being. Creativity is how we express ourselves. However, It is important to understand that nobody can make us “creative.” Each person on this planet is unique. Therefore, each one of us sees the world differently. From that point of view, there is space for every person on this planet. There is no need for comparison because even if we wanted, we cannot have other’s person thoughts or ideas.
So, what makes a person more creative then? Well, the question is not why a person is more creative, but what is stopping you from being creative?
Fear of failure, criticism or comparison with others, are among the main causes of creative block. The more you are identified with the ego and its fears, the more difficult will be for you to connect with creativity.
Negative EGO – negative is not an adjective to define ego. EGO is basically the reference in our physically and is essential for our existence.
Negativity creeps into the EGO structure. The EGO structure keeps growing in its strength of its negativity to the point where it acquires a very powerful standing in your being. It is a negative person living inside you. The dissolution of the negative EGO is like breaking down an enemy. You can’t turn negative EGO into a positive one, you need to dissolve it.
Mastery of any discipline means that it has become second nature; therefore, there is no thought process involved anymore. All that remains is you as a witness. There are no more fear or doubts. You feel so connected to your intuition and inspiration, that there is no room for negativity or any other fear-based thought or emotion.
EGO is the part of the mind that mediates between the conscious and the unconscious and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of personal identity. Therefore, in this context, Negative EGO is when the negative takes over those conscious and unconscious thoughts creating a negative thought pattern stopping you from being creative.
This is our nemesis. It undermines everything that we do. Convinces us that we are unable to do even the simple things that we love.
This negative EGO speaks enough and we begin to believe this voice. We now begin to discard our ability to step into new opportunities, invest in our talents and follow our hearts.
How do we battle this?
1 Don’t blame yourself or your thoughts, don’t reject them either. All you have to do is to accept them. Remember, what you accept you go beyond; if you fight it, you will get stuck with it.
2.Notice the negative EGO – knowing is half the battle. Start trying to catch you negative ego in the act of spinning the lies
- Trust in you, in your knowledge and preferences. You have a unique view of the world, so focus on what you see and feel rather than what others should do.
4 Remember that mistakes are part of the process of learning. Everybody has made mistakes. That is the only way to know exactly what you don’t want! After all, if you are not making mistakes, it means you are not really trying.
- Break out the nurturing parent – imagine your negative ego is a young child that is frightened, insecure or panicking. Give it some unconditional love and compassion
Whenever you start something new, take a new step there will be a backlash, from within your negative EGO. Once you are aware of this you can do something about this. When you do something, new there is always the element of fear. This is natural and normal. There is no roadmap, no plan. Our bodies run from anything that can harm us, so if it is a potential danger we run.
Comparing ourselves to others may erode how we appreciate our own qualities. Do you talk about yourself to others, and privately in your mind, in ways that discount your abilities and positive qualities? I certainly do.
Live your life to its fullest potential each and every day.
