I have mentioned in other posts that we are always expressing. And if we aren’t allowing ourselves to express our voice, another part of us will find ways to do that. Even if it’s through bodily imbalances, and emotions like depression.
And as we expand into our true selves, we find that our soul wants to express through us. It wants to feel the joy of moving through a physical body, and it finds the landscape of the body and the outer world quite delicious.
As we allow more and more of that part of ourself, we find that the ways to express show up. And they are not limited to what we think are valid ways to do so. It could be through a form such as art, or writing or song. It could be through creating a garden. Or cooking. It could be simply to enjoy the sensual nature of life itself.
What are we expressing? Whatever feels good. It could be the story of our journey to where we are now. It could be the wisdom we have gained. The pitfalls. We could express it humorously, or dramatically. It could simply be our perspective on the 3D world we find ourselves living in. There’s certainly a lot of material there.
It’s understandable that we would be reluctant to share our knowledge and wisdom, especially as it relates to our spiritual journey. We may have been put down for it in other lifetimes, for expressing spirit. We may be concerned about friends and family, those close to us being associated with our expressions, and we may want to protect them.
There is lack of confidence. We are not so sure we have anything of value to share. Especially as it relates to our soul. We’ve all gotten the clear message that the spiritual, or more esoteric area is not as valuable as is ‘hard bed reality’. So it’s not taken seriously, and even seen by some as ‘evil.’ As suspicious. As ungodly.
So there are the pragmatists and the religionists, both groups being represented, at least in our minds.
And there is the feeling that maybe we are just not ready to share. And there is really no rush. Maybe there is just not the inspiration or the passion. That needs to be honored.
But it’s important to make sure there’s not something else lurking below the surface. Make sure you are not thinking you have to resolve all your issues first. Or the world has to catch up first with ascension. We may feel we are not credible unless we have moved through all our ‘stuff.’
Credibility is something other people feel from you. It’s not so much your words. They feel that you have been through hell and back. They feel the wisdom you have gained from your experiences. They feel your compassion, and your sincerity. They are not looking for perfection in your voice. They want someone they can relate to on a human level. Someone who is also traveling this often arduous path, who still has doubts and fears, who has made it this far, and still manages to have a sense of humor.
Someone, regardless of their circumstances, who can not only give voice to their human concerns, but can also express their soul’s joy. And to do it in their unique way, a way that no one else can do.
But it’s also o.k. to feel not ready yet, because you may feel you have more you want to experience first. Honor that in yourself. No one knows better than you. And when you do feel the calling, and want to put into tangible form what you are feeling within the depths of your soul, then they ways and means will present themselves.
SETTING YOUR CREATIONS FREE
if you decide to put in tangible form your soul’s wisdom, along with your human perspective, it’s then important to set it free. It can’t be contained, or held onto. Not that all expressions need to be shared. I have had to throw away literally boxes full of journals, because I needed the closet space. None of them were shared with anyone. They were just for me. Same with some of my artwork.
But if you do create something, and part of you feels the desire to share it, then it is important to do so. Others are waiting to hear from you.
And with the current technology, there is no longer a barrier to expressing and sharing. Whether it’s writing, art, music, videos, or any of a number of forms.
As a musician, I marvel at how easy it is now to create recordings and share songs. Through distributors, for a relatively low fee, I can share my songs world-wide. It gives me so much pleasure to know others are enjoying my music. In the ‘old days,’ a musician would have to get recorded in an expensive music studio, send out their demos and hope some label would pick them up.
And writing. Wordpress and other website platforms are available for free, or a nominal cost, and even have nice preset template designs. You just fill in the content.
When I began this blog seven years ago, I had just a few dozen visitors a year. Now my stats are up to thousands of views a month. And it’s just spiritual marketing. Doing what you love, nurturing it, and letting the dynamics of energy do the rest. It’s not your job to figure out google optimization. Or your target audience. That’s all taken care of ‘behind the scenes.’ The technology is user-friendly and intuitive compared to just a few years ago. It was designed by those who were inspired by…you guessed it…us! And now it is possible to leave your legacy here on the planet, long after you are gone. The internet provides such a vehicle, if you choose.
So many of you are already creating platforms for sharing of yourself, and know how satisfying it is. You know by now that creativity has its ebbs and flows. It’s not something that can be confined to a 9 to 5 type of structure. It’s something that comes in when you are in that place of openness and relaxation.
FEAR OF VISIBILITY
As you share more and more, and become more visible, there are fears of being too visible and of being vulnerable. Of wondering if you may be offending anyone. Of whether your next project will be as good as the last. These fears begin to take a back seat because you discover that your soul doesn’t give a damn about any of that. It’s not going to compromise its freedom, or its joy. It’s not worried about what anyone else thinks. It doesn’t cater to public opinion. In fact, after a point your creations have built their own momentum, and it becomes easier to create and share them.
SETTING IT FREE
If we become concerned with our audience’s response, or lack of response, it stops the clear, pure flow from our soul. Even now after years of writing, sometimes just before I hit that publish button on a post, I take a deep breath. I find myself at times wondering if I have said too much, or if it is even appropriate to share. The doubts come in, and I wonder, what it’s all about anyway? Who am I to believe in the significance of this material?
And then, once I do press the publish button, (and I hear myself saying, “publish or perish!”) there is something very satisfying. That expression from my soul is released. It’s been set free.
