I have always been attracted to divergent thinkers. People who are unafraid to be different, and march to the beat of their own drum. I understand now why I have always been attracted to these types of people. I was born when mercury was retrograde. This means I am "hard wired" to be an out-of-the-box thinker, and to want to do my own thing. I read recently that Prince, Lady Gaga, and Madonna were also born when mercury was retrograde. That makes a lot of sense given their extraordinary personas.
The planet mercury in your astrological chart governs your style of communication. Whatever zodiac sign that you have in mercury will be the style of thinking, and speaking that you have. It is not necessarily the same as your sun sign. If you are interested in finding our more about what zodiac sign governs your communication style, go to www.astro.com and have a free natal chart done. It will tell you what sign you have in mercury, and if it is retrograde.
Einstein and Creativity
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. Einstein said, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” Who knows the degree to which creativity influenced Einstein’s intellect. One thing seems certain, it was a meaningful way for Einstein to connect with his soul.
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 human robots. And we would be throwing away the potential inherent in our soul’s unique expression.
Unleash Your Creativity
Creativity is connected to the way we think, feel, and choose to express ourselves. We are all creative souls to varying degrees. Our realities are shaped by what we believe. 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 without limits.
The more you begin to be creative in your life, the stronger your creativity muscles will become. Creativity may take many forms. It may be something as small as taking a different route to work then you normally do! Change breathes new life into familiar situations. Trying something new is also a wonderful way to inspire creativity. For example, I began dancing as a child, and still dance to this day. I plan to continue as long as I am able! Instead of sticking with only one style over the years, I have tried new ways to dance. Each style uses new muscles, has new movements, and expressions. Ultimately, my happiest moments are when I freestyle, and all my experiences come out in my own interpretation.
I encourage everyone to dive into your own creative potential. Become more aware of what you are thinking, feeling, and doing every day.
Gemstones and Creativity
Gemstones are wonderful to wear to assist with tapping into your creative energy. Sodalite is excellent for this purpose. My “Live Your Truth” bracelet is created with sodalite, and pyrite skulls. I find myself wearing it ALL the time. Get your own sodalite gemstone bracelet here.
Carnelian is another gorgeous gemstone that is useful for tapping into creative energy. This carnelian pendant, and jasper beaded long necklace is one-of-a-kind. Find the carnelian gemstone beaded necklace here.
I leave you with this last quote by Einstein. “Creativity is contagious, pass it on.” Consider yourself tagged. :)
