So I can bring forth work divine.
I spin and write and draw and paint,
Divine flow through as I create,
My masterpiece for all to see,
And share with those who are in need.”

The Metaphysics of Creativity
Traditionally, metaphysics refers to the branch of philosophy that attempts to understand the fundamental nature of all reality, whether visible or invisible. It seeks a description so basic, so essentially simple, so all-inclusive that it applies to everything, whether divine or human or anything else. It attempts to tell what anything must be like in order to be at all.
Living is an act of creativity. Not just being an artist, writer, painter but the sheer act of living is a creative force that we often do not acknowledge. Living consciously and with awareness is an act of even deeper creativity. On many levels, creativity is an inner process: what you dream, imagine, and then give physical form to, is the transition from inner insight to an outer process. This is what you create. Making a dream or an idea a reality. Creativity is often used to refer to the process of creating new ideas, actions or approaches. Innovation is the process of both generating and applying such creative ideas in some specific context.
As creative beings, we need the stimulation of creativity to grow. Here you can discover the building blocks of creativity. Consider these tools for cultivating creativity and apply your creativity into innovation.

Building Blocks of Creativity
Although it may seem that creativity can come from nowhere, in truth, it comes from a deep well of self acquired knowledge, both conscious and unconscious. The creative process (although primarily a right brain/frontal lobe function) also emerges from our own unique knowledge and how we weave it together! Learn how to inspire creativity…
Cultivating Creative Spark
What is the “creative spark”? Creativity is accessed through a stimulus. It is important to embrace the transition! Learn to recognize strengths you may have overlooked and use them in the creative process. Embrace optimism and compel yourself forward. Honor the creative endeavor, which you are transforming into.
Your Creativity Journal
Innovation is applied creativity. the term is often used to refer to the entire process by which an individual or organization generates creative new ideas and converts them into novel, useful and viable creations! A Creative Journal is a book or record you create to chart progress, make steps to follow and create a journey to building self-confidence.
“Make your own kind of music. Sing your own special song, even if nobody else sings along.”
-Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil
Improve Creativity with Music
Music can stimulate the fore-brain to open up the creative portion of the mind. The interaction may take the form of talking about thoughts and feelings, contributing to group experiences, cooperating with others or responding to others’ needs. Interpersonal interaction can take place through music listening.
1. Choose types of music which inspire you.
2. Music can help you reflect, influence and alter your emotional response and therefore is a valuable therapeutic tool.
3. Music for creativity helps with identification, awareness, reflection or expression of feelings and can help with related issues.
4. Music can act as a psycho-therapeutic tool to improve mental clarity. Mental clarity can be boosted through improvisation, singing, movement and dancing.
5. The right music (music you love) can provide you with sensory feedback, will promote self-knowledge and promote awareness and identity.
6. Music taps into memories and emotions. Work with music that brings forth memories and emotions that are positive, uplifting and motivating.
7. Music is success oriented. People of all ability levels can participate and reach their goal.
8. Studies have shown that it is not one type of music that inspires us or builds creativity, but any type of music that works to encourage your progress.
9. Learn more about our connections to music and the entrainment process.
10. Now choose the music that will help you to get motivated, inspire your actions and take you to the next step. Make a CD or MP3 of your favorites and utilize this valuable tool often!
Chakra and Creativity
A holistic point of view shows us that nothing works independently of one another, but in a collective manner that makes everything relative to each other
The Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine, is the energy center that gives us the motivation and action needed to make real our dreams. Without this region being balanced and stable any dreams or creative energies can not be made to manifest without root. When this center is balanced, it grounds a creative project into reality keeping you focused on the task and allowing the bodies’ energy to rise up through the other centers in order to become an innovative creation.
The Sacral Spleen Chakra, located between the base of the pubic bone and below the navel, is where the spark of creativity initiates. Here it is about the manipulation of the senses and the world in relation to them. This chakra represents the movement of the spark upwards to the Throat Chakra in order to be expressed on the outside.
The Throat Chakra, located at the throat at the notch above the clavicle, is about creative expression. Using your “voice”, be it physical or through your fine art, paintings, body as with a dancer or actor or even writing. Any form of creative expression is released from the Throat Chakra.
Learn more about your Chakra centers and how to keep them balanced.
