I have been thinking about the creative process and how we can flow with ease through it (more about it on my latest post) and since I practice to first be aligned and feel good and then create, inspiration comes in the most unexpected ways.
Yesterday we decided to go out to lunch and see the carpet flower in the Grand Place here in Brussels. It was a beautiful sunny day, great music on the streets and the food delicious. Everyone was in a great mood, relaxed, expecting the best and when you expect the best, you always get the best, right!
So I was happy and when I was in the subway to come back home, I was looking around, seeing different kinds of persons, doing different things and when I look at them, I'll start to make tiny stories about them.
This was a pure creative moment. I was seeing the best part of every person around me, like their light was touching my soul, so beautiful!!!
Here are some examples :)
Put yourself in a good mood, catch the subway or go for a garden were you can see people.
Everyone has light and a beautiful soul, set an intention to see the light of the world. Ohhh God so good!!!!
Now look at one person at a time an see it with the eyes of an angel, just looking for the best. Look into their souls and let their light touch your heart. Let the light of the world be shown to you. Grab a piece of paper and a pen a see what happens.
If you like to share this experience with me, please send me a private message on Facebook or in the comment section below or even on Instagram at @susanatavaresart using the #surrenderincolor.

Close your eyes for a moment and feel your creative spirit.
For me, my creative spirit feels like a fresh wave moving inside and around me, a connection between my feet (the earth) and the very top of me, my connection with source ( God).
Our creative spirit lives inside of ourselves, always ready to take a step forward when you are in a ease state of mind, relaxed and allowing.
Your creative spirit creates paintings, collages, beautiful songs and poems but your creative spirit create as well the world you live in. When I speak about creation I have to include everything in my / your world, because you are the creator of your own reality.
So how to keep your creative spirit alive?
First of all he never dies or goes to some place else, it's always there waiting for you to be receptive to its calls, ideas and inspirations. Don't you think this is wonderful, to know that is always there waiting. Waiting for you to be happy and joyful and relaxed and o.k were you stand in this present moment.
What is your job?
To feel really good! Ah ah is exactly this, To feel good, to make everything possible to feel good and you know why? Because feeling good is what you really are, is when you are connected with your joy, your positive state of being and that allows good ideas and inspirations to come.
Off course, I am not saying that you can not have bad days, that is normal and o.k and when you have them, just embrace yourself in this knowing that's part of life and your growing into it.
There is so much around us in this world, that is easy to not be happy and overwhelmed. That's why I am writing this post, to remembering you that you can choose! Yes you can choose! What you see, what you hear, what you talk, what feeds your world! What is it? What feeds your world?
Are you hearing the news all the time, worrying about all the bad things happening, and complaining all the time that things are not as you like them to be.... Well this will not get you far...
Dear you, if you have the power to choose, why not choosing what you want?
Do you want feel bad... No! So choose something that feels good!
Do you want to feel worried...No! So choose something that feels happy!
Do you want to feel down...No! So choose something to feel up!
Do you want to feel ugly.... No! So choose something that feel beautiful!
You get the point, choose what makes you feel good, start with simple things and focus your attention the most time you can in pleasant things or activities you love, like- pet the dog, go for a walk, observe the birds flying, smell the flowers and be inspired by their colors, see an inspiring video, paint, sing a song you love.
Practice, practice, practice.... Like painting and drawing you need to practice to be in this ease, positive state of mind. Doing this you are making a statement to the universe, and a powerful one.
"Universe I love to be happy, to feel good and inspired, please bring me more!"
And when you do your part, the universe / source / God will bring you more and more.
I believe we are here to be happy and to live a beautiful creative life, because we have the creative force inside of us, is always flowing, we just have to practice well being, practice joy and happiness. And when you do this, you are lighter.... and a light to this world, shining your beautiful being, a gift to planet Earth and an inspiration to the ones around you.
Be you, be present, be happy and create a life you love
