2 Signs That Inflexibility is Setting into Your Life Experience (video incl.)

“The Universe is ever expanding and gives rise to new opportunities for creating and orchestrating planetary and galactic development. So, if the Universe is pushing ever on outward, why set boundaries for creativity on any level?

Never limit yourself because anything can be achieved if doubt is removed.

The Universe is not set — why should you be?”

~excerpt from ‘Creative Expression — How to find your inspiration'

The Boxes We Create

There are 2 main dowsers of our creative flame:

  1. Doubt
  2. Rigidity

1. Doubting Thomas

We all have experienced doubt on some level or other. When it comes to our own creative expansion, doubt is the little monster that comes to urinate on our freshly lit fires.

To have a little bit of doubt is natural, what isn't natural is to let it win over in your life!

When we come up against doubt, we need to closely examine it — see if it's just a threshold guardian that we have placed in our own way (hint: it usually is). Doubt is a stumbling block to growth, and it's our job to overcome our uncertainties. We need to push out of any comfort zones we've created for ourselves.

Each time we are faced with self-doubt and overthrow it, we add another building block of strength and character to our personality.

Lesson from the Universe: Take the ‘ubt' out of doubt and DO.

2. Rigid Ruthy

Rigidity is when we don't move forward. We get stuck in our mental body (which almost always leads to us getting stiff in our physical body and unbending in our emotional body).

We tend to get jammed in:

  • thinking we know it all or we're the best in our field,
  • thinking there is nothing more to learn or add to our experience or what we can offer others,
  • thinking that it's all been done before and there's nothing new anymore,
  • feeling way too comfortable where we are and not leaving any more room for personal growth.

Lesson from the Universe: I am limitless and ever expanding (macrocosm), so are you (microcosm).

Please watch the video below for a more in-depth and slightly peculiar look at what the universe can teach us about creative expression…

    Cheri, thank you for your writing. But I must say that it is a shame your work is limited to Facebook. We all know that Facebook is, to say the least, an insidious tool of the overlords, which is the most highly monitored publishing site in the world by government and pseudo government organizations hell bent on enslaving or imprisoning humanity. I wanted to look at your art. And I saw it — for about one second, before the page was pasted over by a demand to sign up for Facebook. So, I guess I cannot view your work because I have not given in to the exclusive social club. I will NEVER participate in Facebook. And I am not the only one. I wish you had a regular web site.

    Sorry, Cheri, I take that back. I have found your web site, and I don’t have to comply with Facebook to view it.
    Thank you, and, again, sorry for the unfounded accusation of exclusivity.
    Your work is utterly beautiful!
    Thanks again!
