The Creative Core is my term for the deep well of creativity and creative capacity that is in every human being when they enter the world.
When the Creative Core is stifled we often feel stuck. The connection to our intuition is blocked, as is a lot of our potential for expression. Our ability to process difficult emotions is hindered, and so is our ability to connect to our deepest desires. And, the self-critic that stifles our creativity damages us emotionally.
The capacity of the Creative Core lies dormant in many adults, but it does not go away. In fact, it yearns to be animated, and it can be awakened. And, once that creative fire is ignited and nurtured, it’s hard to extinguish. New energy and passion emerge. New possibilities present themselves.
Our creative capacity is connected to the way our brains work. Unlike the “left brain”, that processes facts and is logical and linear, the “right brain” is where expression, intuition, creativity, dreams, concepts and ideas are generated. When the Creative Core is activated and nurtured, right brain activity increases. And the great thing to know is that the abilities of the left brain are enhanced, as well.
The more that you create the more benefits you’ll reap. The more fully you adopt a creative mindset, the more agency you have to create the life you want.
Living a creative life is where we truly thrive. Unlock and accelerate creativity to Live Big.
