Ground yourself to make your creative ideas become real


Coming up with  new ideas and creative solutions isn't a problem.

Brilliant ideas are showing up everywhere for you. That's the easy part - your creative imagination. The trouble starts when you try to make these ideas come to life.

It's often easier to think up those creative ideas than it is to manifest them. Sometimes there are more ideas coming than there is time or space to make them happen. Having a lot of ideas you want to manifest is great, but can also feel overwhelming when you don't know where to start, or which one to focus on first.

Especially if you're involved in several creative projects at a time, and have other people you're working with too, things can get a bit tricky. When you add in the pressure of deadlines, budgets, and other aspects of making something real, it can feel like it's all too much.

When you have trouble making your creative ideas real, does this mean you're unable to create? You might want to take a grounding break.

Ground yourself and make it easier to manifest your creative projects.

Grounding is a meditation technique used to make things real, to manifest, create stability, make it safe to take a chance. When you ground yourself, you can direct your focus, your energy, more clearly.

Grounding helps you to create more space for yourself, which gives you more space in which to create. Creating anything requires having enough energy and enough space to do so. By consciously choosing to give this to yourself, you are already creating!

Your ability to manifest your own vision may be invalidated, for whatever reason. Perhaps you never thought you had any creative talent to begin with, yet there is a burning desire within you to create… something.

If you were told while growing up that becoming an artist wasn’t a “real” job for actual grown-ups, this energy within you would go a long way towards squashing your natural permission to create.

Are you trying to create everything, all at once?

Your difficulty in manifesting on a creative level may have to do with being pulled in too many directions at once. When you are trying to have it all and do it all at the same time, it will be hard to get any one thing real and working.

There's not enough time and space in a day to focus your attention and energy on everything. You've got to be able to let some of it go, so you have the bandwidth for the current project. If you feel you are only skimming the surface in your work, this may be why.

This may also be the reason why you work on many projects at once. If you get stuck on one, you have a good excuse to step away from it. You can let it drop, and forget all about it. The only problem with this is that soon you will have a lot of unfinished projects, and a deep seated belief that you’re not any good at creating what it is you want.

Doing work that is real requires an emotional commitment. Grounding yourself helps you release the leftover energies that stop you from digging deeper.

You already are a creative being, simply for existing.

You have nothing to prove here, and nobody to convince, except yourself. Grounding yourself makes it easier to see your own creative truth clearly, and when you can see it, you can be it.

You may have a lot of demands on your time and energy that make it hard for you to find enough time to create something for yourself. If you spend your energy creating for others, and don't have enough left when it comes to your own vision, you can change this. Create what you want by grounding yourself before you work.

When you use grounding for yourself and your creations, it is possible to make the things you want to create, real. Use grounding as a tool to release invalidation and frustration, along with demands that you go do something else, anything other than realize your own vision.

Grounding helps you make your vision real.
