Every once in awhile I like to remind myself of this because I really believe it and I’ve even written about it before!
Have Fun! Be Creative! Color Outside The Lines!
We are here on earth to create, to have fun and to find JOY amidst all of the struggles we face. This is where the true fun is.
And when you remember this and you let your creative fun self out, channels open up that you would have never imagined! ( and please note imagination is very important in play and make-believe )….
I think the most important piece of the puzzle is to remember that if we make it all up, we can make up ‘good stuff’. Why on earth would we pick the stuff that does not make us feel good to do or to play? Like right now I am going to wrap up this post and go work in my kitchen and try some new recipes on my Sunday afternoon that is focused on self-care. This will bring me great JOY and health benefits that will be helpful for my body, mind and soul!
I hope that you go and ‘make-up’ your day and use your imagination to feel your passions. Have FUN and please be in JOY!
Today is September 1st and I can feel the new energy that this month brings. I find it very unique and beautiful.
Lately I have been getting nudges to write more. I am finding that I NEED to write. I know that I am on this earth to express myself and hopefully inspire others while I am doing just that. 🙂
I have joined, starting today, a 21 day Writing Journey with Mike Dooley. I trained under Mike to become a Certified Infinite Possibilities Trainer & Coach and I love his work and his sharings. He is amazing.
Anyhow, I am excited and my soul is excited to write more and to express myself more like I am doing right here, right now. And September is always a great month to commit to those things that you love to do and that bring you 𝓙𝓞𝓨.
What about You? What is your soul calling for more of? What passions or projects are nudging you at this time? Are you listening?
I really want to encourage you to explore what is calling to you and to commit to doing more of it.
The kids are going back to school. Adults are going back to school. Learning is in the air along with pumpkin spice and everything nice, so it’s the perfect time to say full speed ahead and to honor your soul. At least I think so.
I would love to hear what creative projects you will do more of….
Wow. I am both amazed and in awe of the stories I am hearing about people manifesting good things into their lives as well as the experiences I am having also! There is a whole new energetic creative frequency that has quickened on the planet.
For example, you may be looking for something that you have misplaced like your glasses and say to yourself “Where are those glasses?” And at the same time your eyes land upon them. This is happening to me multiple times in a day. This is just one example of the type of energy I am talking about.
We have been hearing for years now about the power of visualization and about creating vision boards and such, but now there is a whole new level to this game. I have a KNOWING and without a shadow of a doubt that is much easier to manifest and ‘image’ or ‘imagine’ or to use our ‘imagination’ to create and manifest our desires than ever before. This my friends is what I refer to as “𝕋𝕙𝕖 𝔸𝕨𝕒𝕜𝕖𝕟𝕚𝕟𝕘“. We are remember (reconnecting) to our God-Self and thus our creative powers. Yes I will use the word ♥ POWER ♥. We are powerful creators and powerful power houses full of imagination and creativity. We just need to be the master of our own house! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
I was up in the middle of the night twice last night as creativity and ideas were channeled though me and I had to get out of bed to write them down as they flowed and expanded right on out of me… I knew I would not remember if I did not write them down. I also knew that I was in an altered state of creative consciousness. I LOVE LOVE LOVE tapping into this channel of pure creative 𝐁𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐬♥ !!!!! ♥ ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
I encourage each and everyone of you reading this to tap in and to embrace this powerful shift in energetic access to this ability that we all have! It is your time to shine and to truly embrace your highest creative force. Just think of the magnificence of the creative force of you being birthed into a being in the first place. WOW! That is the ultimate creation. Now it is time to play and enJOY and to DELIGHT in these creative powers. EnJOY!!!
I am all about creativity and that sponsoring thoughts begin all things, however, action is a game changer. Action is a catalyst for making things happen. Action is necessary after the thoughts begin the creation process.
When is the best time to feed an idea and take action? The minute it is born. Just like a baby that we need to feed or the baby will die. If we do not feed or take action on our ideas they lie dormant and often die.
Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about…. Is what I say true? Say yes quickly, if you know, if you’ve known it from before the beginning of the universe.”
We are all artists because we are all creators. I have come to believe that our job here on earth is to create. We create life. We create worlds. We create our reality. We create physical things. We create music. We create beauty. We create inspiration. We create through words. We create through song. We create through play. We create meals. We create emails. :- We create vacations. We create OUR life. We create mud pies 🙂 … You get the idea. We create. We create. We create!
I encourage you to embrace the creator within in. I encourage you to unleash your unbridled creative spirit in some form that inspires you.
Here is a link to a blog post I wrote in the past about being your own artist:
Lately I am SO SOOOOOO excited about awakening my own artist within but also in seeing so many people in the world awaken to their inner and outer creativity.
On Saturday I popped into my local Winners store and happened upon a book that has been truly life changing for me. I was so inspired after starting to read it, that I nearly burst. 🙂
My creativity and feelings of passion were bubbling up inside of me as I read the book!
The book is “Styling For Instagram” by Leela Cyd.
When I saw the book, the student and forever learner in me, kind of thought, yeah I’d like to get better at Instagram, so I scooped it but… but… this book is much more than Instagram!!!!
Leela says “With a phone in your hand you can be a “photographer.” There’s no extra buy-in fee, you already have what you need, and “auto” mode works just fine. With technology having evolved so quickly in the past decade, there’s no reason not to try your hand at making beautiful images”.
I have been taking phone pics for years and those that know me, know that I am constantly saying “I gotta get a pic of that”. 🙂 But I have since discovered that I am also a passionate creator who loves to capture beauty and inspire others and the world…. so this book just blew the lid off for me. So many endless ideas and opportunities that I now see to create and play and delight in making these creations!
The book is laid out in an easy format to follow, with clear and concise concepts and pictures for each one. For example, she has two page creation concepts that she covers like “Light & Airy”, “Props”, “Plain & Simple”, and countless others.
This morning I played with using the sun that was casting itself on one of my chairs in the house. I propped up one of my wall pictures and was able to capture the sun on the wording which I thought was pretty cool.
I am so grateful that there are so many people in the world so willing to share and help each other and that technology allows for so much creativity and culture that we never had access to before. And let’s not forget the technology as tools for editing and creation too. It really is true that anyone can en-JOY photography, art, creation, and that there truly are infinite possibilities.
Yesterday my daughter and granddaughter were with me painting pictures. Sivanna showed me a place online where she finds ideas of what to paint. It may sound simple to some, but I thought that was amazing! A place to find endless ideas. In the old days one had to physically be at various places to get ideas and inspired and now endless ideas everywhere!
I will close now and I hope you too are inspired to awaken to your creativity if this is something that brings you JOY to do. I am excited to share my newly inspired creations over at my Instagram account and I would be honored if you would be so kind to follow me and to comment on any of my creations as I learn and grow! And please in turn I would love to follow you! Nothing brings me greater JOY than following the trail of inspiration! You can find me on Instagram Maggie’s Instagram Account

Today on Facebook, a local business, Bay Village Coffee, shared a FB post promoting my friend May Porter’s art in the form of holiday greeting cards.
I have to share with you that this post brought tears to my eyes. My friend May is a terrific artist and she is getting her work out there. I remembered back to a time when May was more of a silent artist, or perhaps a time when she was a little less confident about her gift. And I thought of all of the artists out there. It matters not if the art is in the form of painting, drawing, sewing, writing, cooking, gardening, designing or just creating of any sort, it’s art! And how many of us struggle with letting it come out and through us?
This my friends, is why I had tears in my eyes. For all the Mays, the Maggies, the Susans and Joes of the world who struggle with allowing our art and our gifts and letting them come out. We all have beautiful divine expressions of creativity and gifts that we have to offer the world and many of us keep them hidden.
I for one, have vowed to use my gift of expressing through words more often and to ‘let it out’ and this is why I am here writing today. 🙂
Here is a picture May posted today of her favorite work area in her home, her dining room table.
Others commented and posted sharing their favorite areas to create too! So often we think we need special rooms, areas, or tools for our craft when in reality it’s just do it and the spaces and inspirations will find their place as we journey along. It always begins with the first step…
I encourage the artist in you, to unleash its divine essence and flow through you and out to the world. We have been waiting for you!
I close with another piece of May’s art. The English Robin and prints are available for those interested. And to see more of May’s work, she does have a FB Page . If you too love the artists of the world and also love supporting them, give her page a Like. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/mayporterartist/ And a shout out to Bay Village Coffee for their local business and in supporting the artists and entrepreneurs of the world!
