Life is your canvas. You are the painter. You paint the story of your life through creative soul expression. Soul Expression Jewelry
I have always been attracted to people who are divergent thinkers. People who are unafraid to think and be different from everyone else. I find these types of people attractive because they are intrinsically creative. They are loyal to authentically expressing their essence, and by doing so, they bring something new to the world.
Creativity has a lot to do with how we think, feel, and express ourselves. I will discuss that more in this blog. And I will share with you a gemstone that is a wonderful tool for stimulating your creativity.
Einstein and Creativity
Inventive and imaginative are two key words that are used by the Canadian Oxford Dictionary to describe the word creative. These two words relate to the ability to think originally.
The following quote by Einstein is one of my favourites. “Creativity is seeing what everyone else has seen and thinking what no one else has thought.” I love this. If we all were identical in what we thought, said, and did, there would be no new discoveries in the world. We would be throwing away the potential inherent in our soul’s unique expression.
It is well known that Einstein was a genius, and responsible for brilliant discoveries in the field of science. What I found intriguing was that he had a deep love for music in his personal life. He began playing the violin as a child and music remained a passion for him his entire life. Who knows if his creative expression in music had an influence on the development of his overall intellect? One thing is certain though, Einstein was an exceptional and extraordinary creative thinker.
Mercury in Astrology: Style of Communication and Thinking
The planet mercury in astrology governs communication. Whatever zodiac sign is in mercury in your birth chart will influence your style of thinking and communicating. For example, a manager who has their mercury in Aries will have a quite different way of delivering information to their employees then a manager who has their mercury in Pisces. (The zodiac sign in mercury in your birth chart does not have to be the same as your sun sign.)
Astrology is useful for understanding people on a deeper level that you are connected to. (It could apply to personal and professional situations) As Stephen Covey says, "Seek first to understand, then to be understood." Having a better understanding of others will increase the likelihood of CREATING more meaningful and productive conversations. My background in psychology shines through here. I have always been interested in how people think. :)

Creativity is Soul Expression
In my opinion, being creative is a way to unleash the power of your soul. I believe we are here on earth to incarnate as much of our soul’s potential as possible, and to courageously offer our gifts to the world. The more you use your creative ability the stronger it will become.
Everyone expresses their creativity differently. It may take many forms. By simply introducing change, or learning something new, you are inserting a creative element into your life. Do a regular activity in a different way, go for a walk in an unfamiliar area, or sign up for a course to learn a new skill! New sights, sounds, and experiences will open your mind to possibilities and shift your perspective. Change and new experiences are like a breath of fresh air!
I personally love dance as a form of creative soul expression. I began dancing as a child, and still dance to this day. Instead of sticking with only one style over the years, I have tried new ways to dance. Each style uses new muscles, has different movements, and expressions. I am definitely a fusion dancer at heart, and enjoy the freedom it offers me.
Gemstones and Creativity
Gemstones are wonderful to wear to assist with tapping into your creative energy. Carnelian is a gorgeous gemstone that is excellent for this purpose. I have created a statement necklace with carnelian that I call "Creative Courage".
What I love about this piece is that the carnelian spikes are all different hues of orange, and different shapes and sizes. The natural pieces of carnelian showcase the beauty of things that are not identical but are unique. This necklace is a beautiful reminder to embrace your uniqueness and let your creativity flow.
I leave you with this last quote by Einstein. “Creativity is contagious, pass it on.” I find this to be true. When people view a creative work of art, they are often inspired by it. For some, it may touch a chord within them and promote a cathartic response which moves them in some way. For others, it may inspire them to look within themselves and create something that is a unique reflection of who they are.
Creativity initiates movement, no matter how big, or small. The gift it offers you is insight, discovery, and vast opportunities for creative soul expression.
