What Is Inspiration?

What Is Inspiration?

Something already thought up, dreamt up, or envisioned by the creator and you and I being the vessel from which it flows.

Inspiration is the place where we can experience different pieces of the whole through dance, music, painting, writing, sewing, and any other form of art.

There seems to be a well of possibilities just waiting to be translated. If an art form grabs hold of you, it has obviously chosen you as the perfect medium for some of its greatest expressions.

We all have the ability to create.

It’s A Lifelong Friend

It seems also like there’s a friend listening to us and our deepest desires. It says, “look this way, turn this page, see this blog, call this person.” It’s an inner calling seeing if we can bring life to what it already sees us being able to fulfill.

That’s why artists do what they do. There is no greater love than being able to create.

To somehow believe in yourself and your ability enough to form a possibility into a manifestation.

Wow… Just breathe that in for a minute.

You are the seer, the breath in between, the vessel, and the entire creation all at the same time.

I love it when I don’t know what I am going to write in my own books. I am just as excited as the reader. It’s almost like lock after lock is opening when I write; revealing to me the parts that I am ready to transcribe.

The Spirit Of Inspiration

It’s sitting there waiting to surprise you. It’s like Christmas, or seeing your best friend after years of being apart, or meeting your pet for the first time. It’s that awe, that surprise. That thing that keeps you up late at night, and wakes you up at the crack of dawn. It’s the spirit that makes you want to live. The spirit that helps you move forward with enthusiasm and joy, even though you may not know exactly where you are going.

It’s a trickster sometimes. Elusive at first, but then reveals itself to you in a way that you never expected. It’s the moments when you feel like you are in moments of déjà vu. It’s the moments that smack you in the face (in a good way) and make you believe in your connection and your unique expression in this world.

An Unlimited Resource

It’s a resource that never runs out. It’s a lineage that existed since the beginning of time, and it doesn’t care about your nationality, sexual preferences, hair color, or how many likes you get on a post.

Inspiration only needs two things to flourish. A willing heart & peace with what is. {Renee Brooks}

It works best when you don’t try to box it in. It’s so enormous and out of the box that in order to capture any piece of it, you have to be out of the box as well and in the receiving mode.

For those of you who have felt this kind of inspiration, you know exactly where I am coming from.

Your Biggest Cheerleader

It’s a cheerleader, a coach, a confidant, and an encourager all at the same time. It’s filled with love ready to pour into whomever will receive it. It’s a well of beauty just waiting to be recognized and discovered.

If Inspiration Were A Painting

It would be called a beautiful nightmare. It would sit in front of you in the art gallery calling you towards it. It’s colors and majesty too powerful to soak in all at one time. The intensity of it however would compel you towards it saying, “look at me I am here for all to see, you can grasp me if you just breathe.” Once you relax, you would be able to see the rise and the fall of its waves, the current of its colors, the ups and downs, and its true beauty jump out at you taking you through a whirlwind of emotions. After it sucked you in emotionally it would release you breath by breath until you could see the beauty of its entirety.

Once the painting released you, you would feel heartbroken that it let you go. It would then call you again asking you to take another glimpse. It would then grab hold of you again, filling you up with tears of joy, opening up your heart, and taking you on a completely different ride.

That is my view of inspiration and to sum it all up in layman’s terms,

It’s Life Itself!

From my well of inspiration to your heart.
