How the creative spirit functions
From the Our Creative Spirit
Home Page: Most of us are unaware of the existence (of the
creative spirit) because it normally operates behind the scene of
our life to create subconsciously. Analogously, it is like an
autopilot with default settings. It lead us in accordance with how
it has been programed. We wonder why we cannot create what we desire
but we never address what we have been programmed to create.
To understand how our creative spirit functions, we need to understand the relationship of energy and consciousness. That is, from a creativity perspective, they can be seen and experienced as equivalent forms of the same substance of Creation. We need to understand relative to our ability to create, consciousness can be seen and experienced is a flow of energy which has become aware of itself. As such the creative spirit will act as a consciousness, as a flow of energy and/or as a combination of both. As a consciousness it fulfills the masculine aspect of the creative process. As a flow of energy it fulfills the feminine aspect. In combination in unawareness it is the servant of our enculaturated mind. In combination in awareness, it is the creator experiencing its creation.
As a consciousness it can awaken and become aware and awake to its own existence and its surroundings. Or, it can function subconsciously like an auto pilot. Or, it can be asleep and unaware if not dormant. As a consciousness, it has a personality unto itself. It has desires and preferences determined by our past prior to this life and the intention for our life that we currently are living. The role it elected to play is to create and sustain our body to have the experiences for which it incarnated to have and for which the body was created to support. One of those experiences is to have a physical experience as to what it means to be human at this time and place. A second is to create in the physical Creation at this time and place. These two statements can be said with certainty. After all, you are here in physical Creation as a human being and in essence to be human means to be a creativity machine. You cannot not create. The thoughts we have propel us to create consciously or subconsciously.
As an energy or a flow of energy,
it animates and sustains our human life. One property of energy
consciousness is that energy will flow where the corresponding
consciousness directs the focus of its attention and awareness.
Energy consciousness will model itself to create what it desires. It
will create an experience of that on which it focuses. As such the
flow of energy will sever the either the enculturated mind we
develop as a result of the experiences we have had in life or it can
serve our awaken and aware creative spirit. This creative life
energy will flow to nurture and do what the mind desires and wants
to create or it will do what the creative spirit desires. In this
regard, the flow of energy is much like a horse that can be harness
for a task or a loyal servant that does what it is told. It usually
goes about the business of creating and sustaining what it creates
without question or even being noticed as existing. It remains
behind the scenes unless it is called forth and give permission to
come out. The question here is whether or not this creative spirit
and/or flow of energy is used in a way that best brings out what it
is capable of doing.
When the consciousness is
When the creative spirit is asleep or dormant, both as an energy and
as a consciousness, the enculturated mind is served. In this case,
the flow of energy acts as an unseen and often unfelt
undercurrent in oneís life. We are carried through life and, at
times, we seem to experience mystical forces, synchronicity, or
other magical or unexplained occurrences. Yet, it is only the flow
of energy trying to fulfill
the intention for our life.
