There is a certain power in creating. Something you see, something you hear, something you yearn for. I stumbled upon this image only minutes ago, and couldn’t resist looking at it. Why does it attract me? I believe that images we like, resonate most with our hearts.

I do like this because of the stars, I like the idea of them on a string. I like the colors and crescent moon. Those are abstract themes in nature that I gravitate towards.

Everyone has a creative side.

What would you most like to talk about right now? Maybe it’s politics, or the wallpaper in your bedroom. Maybe it’s the meaning of life, or whether God exists or not. Or maybe it’s simply the feeling you get when you’re in love.

That euphoric feeling of being in love, is a grand part of your creative side.

It does sound extraordinary, but who hasn’t been in love? If you’ve never been in love, please do make a statement right now, because I would like to know you.

Being in love gives you wings. It gives bliss and perspective. That’s when you’re most likely to be one hundred percent present, and give your imaginary canvas the full benefit of what it’s going to be filled with.

May I add here, that being heartbroken is also a very relevant addition. How would we ever listen to those lonely ballads if it weren’t for the broken-hearted musician?

But that broken-hearted musician has been in love, and has felt its power. When it came to an abrupt downfall, that musician poured the contents in a song, or a melancholic piece. The heart came out crying, the words or tune most sorrowfully turned to something that speaks.

In essence, what I’m trying to get at, is emotions. Since the power of creation comes from something as strong as being in love, it can also come from the power-source of sadness.

If you don’t feel, you don’t live. If you don’t live, you don’t feel.

Close your eyes, once more, and think of your most solid moment.

What do you see?

With compelling emotional imagery, you bring out the core of your soul. And that’s your portal to manifesting creativity.

Seek, and you shall find. For what goes unsought, will go undetected.
