What is creative energy?

Creative energy is the power behind our creative processes. It is the force that motivates us to create, innovate, and bring ideas to life. Creative energy is the energy that leads to growth and progress, and it can be found in every aspect of our lives. Creative energy drives it, whether creating a new business venture, writing a song, or just taking time to reflect and develop new ideas.

Creative energy is the spark that ignites us and brings us to life. It is the motivation that keeps us going and helps us to create something meaningful and lasting. Creative energy is the power that pushes us to strive to be the best we can be and to reach our full potential.

Creative energy is also the power of our thoughts and emotions. It is the power of our subconscious mind and the power of our imagination. Creative energy is the power of our intuition and the power of our dreams. The power allows us to manifest our desires and bring our ideas to life.

How to clear out old energy.

The first step to unlocking our creative potential is identifying and clearing out any old energy blocking us from moving forward. To do this, we must look honestly at our lives and assess where we are. We must ask ourselves what is holding us back and where to make changes.

Once we have identified the areas of our lives that need to be addressed, we can begin clearing out the old energy. We can start by letting go of any negative thoughts or emotions we have held onto. We can also let go of limiting beliefs or behavior patterns preventing us from moving forward.

We can also clear out old energy by focusing on positive thoughts and emotions. We can consciously focus on what we want rather than what we don’t want. We can also practice gratitude and appreciation for all that we have in our lives.

Finally, we can clear out old energy by taking action. I’ve read many articles, one of which is here, that talk about clearing the chakras to clear out old energy. While I appreciate that, I found that it could be something you already do. Read on, Sister.

How I clear out old energy.

I’m not new to creative energy. I felt it when I first picked up a camera 15 years ago. I felt it when I would rearrange my house to get the flow right. It’s a beautiful feeling when it surges through you like oxygen. But creative energy and my work life didn’t connect until Covid because I had my corporate day job. During the shutdown, when I was stuck on something, I would leave my home office to organize my pantry, rearrange another room, or fold laundry.

I was finally able to release my creative energy by doing what came naturally to me because I wasn’t strapped to a cubicle in the hallway of a Corporate building. But this is all hindsight, and it’s only recently, now as solely a businesswoman, that I connected those dots. My creative energy gets blocked when my surroundings aren’t right. I recently cleared a huge block, and here’s how it all went down.

I felt this powerful surge of energy to redo my office space after spending time in North Carolina with the family for the holidays. It didn’t come from anywhere; it was building up over the last year, creeping into my head often while I worked. It manifested this way:

  • I hated my office
  • This color paint is too stark
  • Ugh! Seeing specific details bothered me

I often got to work perfecting the layout when the mood was right, moving everything into the hallway, and rearranging the furniture in the middle of the day. I tried to work around the rest because I felt the project would be big and too distracting from what I should be doing — building my business. So I tempered my desire to fix the issue however I could. And that only lasted so long. Eventually, the issue in my office created a block so overdue for clearing that it went down like this.

The surge to redo my office was so intense that I laid out the to-do list on that plane ride home from North Carolina to New Jersey and wiped out all other plans for the week. This was just after the New Year, triggered by the lovely grey color on the walls of my niece’s dining room. Not knowing what I was about to experience, I asked her for the paint color and told myself I’ll paint my office someday.

Yeah. I can tell you. I was still resisting, denying my truth, or oblivious because I remember limiting myself to a new paint job and getting it done in two days to resume my business plans. Yeah, right.

The paint job was done in two days as promised, but as you can see, the project continued. At a certain point, I realized this wasn’t about a distraction but clearing out old energy to let in the new. I had to allow it to take its natural course, and in the process, I learned something about myself.

Before and during the clearing

To clear out old energy, you must let go of the past; sometimes, the past sits in your room as the unwanted stuff from other rooms.

After bringing in new energy

This was about letting go, but it was also about a sense of place.

I can see now that my home and office (and me) were all stuck in a transition state, and that’s not good for creativity. The frames on the shelves were unused–stored in the basement, the sizeable modern artwork on the wall sat in the corner unframed for more than eight months, and the other artwork (over my desk) and decorative objects (on the shelves) came from other rooms where I wasn’t able to enjoy them. The whole process helped settle a lot of spaces in my home.

Creative energy is an invaluable tool that can help us to unlock our full potential and achieve our goals. By taking the time to identify and clear out old energy, we can free up space for new ideas and new opportunities. We can then use creative energy to our advantage in business by creating a clear vision, setting achievable goals, and taking action. By utilizing creative energy, we can progress toward our goals and create a life of abundance and joy.
