Everyone is inherently creative. It’s in our blood as spiritual souls, and we came here to manifest beautiful creations. If you identify as a creative soul, I’m willing to bet that you’re also super sensitive, and you feel things more deeply than the average person.
You may be fearful of your creations, or how they will be received. Whether you’re an artist, a writer, a photographer, or an entrepreneur, putting your work out there to be seen and judged by the world can be terrifying, and yet, it’s part of what you came here to do.
It’s still early days on my journey and I often get bogged down by fear and doubt. However, I’ve definitely learned a few things along my journey, so here are my top tips for bringing your creative manifestations (whether it’s a book, a website, a service, or another product) into the world with ease and beauty:
1. Believe you can do it. This is definitely where I struggle the most with my manifestations. There are so many people out there who will tell you the market is saturated, it’s impossible to do that, it’s crazy to try, and on and on. But the only thing that your success hinges on is YOU, not the external world around you. If you believe you can do it, you can, and if you believe you can’t, you can’t. The universe rearranges itself according to your beliefs, so try to keep your beliefs aligned with what you want to achieve.
2. Meditate, go inwards, and get in the zone. Before I write, I always try to get on the right vibration by meditating, breathing deeply, lighting a candle, or going for a walk. While we obviously want to be on the right vibration as often as possible, it’s especially important to get in the zone before we create. When you’re in the zone, the work will flow effortlessly, and your creation will be of highest quality. Be present in everything you do so you can do your best work every time.
3. Stay in your own lane. It’s frighteningly easy to look at someone else’s creations and compare ourselves. And yet, comparing the creations of two different people is like comparing apples and oranges. We are all completely unique, and trying to imitate someone else’s creations will never pan out the way you want it to. There have been so many times I’ve wanted to give up on my dreams because I felt like my creations paled in comparison to those of so many others. But just because there are people out there killing it at what they do, does that mean you can’t, too? No way! Try to stay in your own lane and focus on your own creations while admiring others from a distance.
4. Enjoy your creations while you’re creating them. I’m learning that the most important thing is to enjoy the journey of your creations. If you don’t enjoy creating, then what’s the point of it all anyway? When we’re so stressed out about creating something perfect, we cut ourselves off from inspiration and infuse our creations with stress and distraction. We often forget that we’re actually here to have FUN and enjoy all the blessings around us, and we take everything way too seriously in the process. Loosen up, relax, and create the book, product, film, or business that YOU would love and appreciate. We have to be a tiny bit selfish in our creations so we can infuse our end products with love and fun.
5. Detach from the outcome. This is something I’ve heard time and time again in books on manifestation, and I think I’m finally beginning to understand what it means. If you’re gripping onto a specific outcome with two hands, you’re leaving no space for the universe to do its thing, and you’re affirming to yourself that you’re in desperate need of something external in order to be happy. Whenever you feel anxious, desperate, or needy about that book deal or a certain number of followers, you’re creating resistance in your vibration and slowing down your manifestation. Trust yourself and the universe to come through for you.
