Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
When you are joyfully allowing your true nature to flow through you, Creative Intelligence is expressed and reflected by what you create, be it a piece of art, a business, or your life. By consciously choosing your thoughts, you maintain a continuous, loving connection with that divine source of energy.
When you allow your thoughts to move away from your true nature, the channel to that Creative Intelligence is affected, and so will the outcomes of what you create. The resulting energy that you attract into your life will be less than spectacular, and sometimes horrible because it does not match the joyous and loving energy of the divine source. A simple concept, so easily shoved aside in our hectic, societal-influenced lives.
For months I had been studying different aspects of creativity, and had invited other coaches to join me in exploring the topic of Creative Intelligence. When I started, I was basically looking at the creative process versus the idea of it being in the form of energy from any source. As I worked with my authors I began to realize that the flow of life and what is referred to as the "creative flow" are one in the same. The only difference is the scale of the outcome. Getting "into the flow" requires an ability to be in the moment, to set your ego-brain aside and allow the energy to move through you without limits or blocks.
When you do that, you connect with Source Energy in a joyous state that creates unlimited potential. You are in your true nature.
For years I had been given a message through my life experiences, the people I attracted into my life, and my own intuition. The message seemed simple, and yet I resisted. After reading the book, an understanding started to take form. The message is that to really understand how to operate in this life, I must move back to choosing my direction based on how I feel, instead of operating from a place of ego and faulty belief systems adopted from others. For me to change my life I would have to learn--actually re-learn--how to sense the emotion that I was having and change it to attract more of what I desired.
What I had done for large parts of my life was to make choices based on perceived outcomes, largely based on three reasons: safety, approval/acceptance, and control. These reasons all result from living in a state of fear. Fear can be good, when it's in an instinctive situation that keeps us from harm. However, when we operate from that place all of the time, the result is that we create an energy field that brings to our reality more reasons to have fear. The law of attraction is very clear: whether you think good thoughts or bad thoughts, they will attract the same energy as you give them.
This is true because the energy of your emotion resonates with like energy. Imagine that you enter a room filled with tuning forks of every key on the musical scale. You pick up a C tuning fork and hit it against your hand. The resulting energy of sound that reverberates through the room will cause all of the C tuning forks to resonate. The other forks remain silent. Like attract likes, no matter what form the energy appears.
Emotions are the tuning forks of your life. They are both vehicles and interpreters of energy. They send out energy, and receive like energy. By paying attention to the signals of your emotions, you can gauge the strength or weakness of your connection to Creative Intelligence, the Source Energy. The better you feel, the more you are in connection; the worse you feel, the less you are allowing the connection. Thoughts and emotions are intrinsically linked: Thoughts stimulate emotion; emotion impacts thought. Even if you are not happy, when you move your mind to memories of happy occasions or to imagine pictures of being joyful, your emotion will begin to change. Conversely, if you experience an emotion, you begin to have thoughts about the cause of that emotion, because you desire to have either more or less of it.
You get what you think and the subsequent emotion, whether you want it or not. If the majority of your thinking and resulting emotion is focused on the things you desire, your life experience will reflect those thoughts and emotions. If they are focused on scarcity, lack, and fear, you will experience their reflection. Nothing happens in life without your inviting it to you.
