“We all came into this world rich with creative gifts. Our very nature as human beings is to be creative in unlimited ways. For most of us, the awareness and recognition of our creative spirit has been forgotten, denied, suppressed or just put on the shelf.”
- - Susan Schanerman
Just as we all have blood that flows, lungs that breathe and hearts that beat … we all came into this world as Creative Beings … rich with unlimited creative potential. In other words, creativity is our very nature.
“It is art that makes life.” - - Henry James
There is nothing we need to learn … or do about it. We simply need to express that creative part of ourselves boldly, freely and authentically.
Back in 2004, the word heARTmatters popped into my head one day as I was driving in a torrential Florida downpour. Then, it kept repeating itself. At the time, I had no idea what it meant ...
"It is only with the heart that one sees rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
- - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Over time, it became clear to me that heARTmatters could be many things ... a concept, philosophy, process, mindset, attitude ... What it basically was saying was that, "There is ART in every heART, Everyone has a heART and Everyone’s heART matters. We each have something unique and special to share ... something that can only come from us ..."
“We need emotional outlets in this country, and the more artistic people we develop, the better it will be for us as a nation.” - - Eleanor Roosevelt, My Days (1938)
And why is this so important?
The way I see it … the only way to live a life that's full and free, enriched, enhanced, and empowered is by awakening, encouraging and supporting the Divine Creative Spirit ... your heART, if you will, into expression … Letting Your Light Sparkle and Shine ... Letting your heART Sing ...
“Whoever uses the spirit that is in him creatively - is an artist. To make living itself an art, that is the goal.” - - Henry Miller
The Creative Capacity that lies within each and every one of us is the single most important factor in any kind of success we pursue.
Ultimately, by fully expressing your Creative Self, you will find every aspect of your professional and personal life more authentic, satisfying and exciting ... rich with adventure and passion.
To me, there is nothing more rewarding and heart-warming than to witness someone being impacted by something I’ve had to say or write. To see them:
- *Experiment with new ways of thinking, seeing, feeling and being
- *Open the mind to limitless possibility
- *Unearth self-limiting beliefs
- *Be Empowered
- *Become more authentic and productive
- *Begin to dream again
- *Recapture the magic in life
