A mind that is stretched to a new idea never returns to its original dimensions.
—Oliver Wendell Holmes
Our habitual sources of creativity have been shut off. Social distancing has removed from our agendas. Movies and museums; Broadway shows and concerts; interactive activities, group classes, and daily rituals—creative outlets that may normally be our sources of inspiration. With so much going on in our world right now, it could be easy to conclude that connecting with creativity would be a great difficulty. But in spite of the dark days we’ve been through due to this world’s pandemic, we’re seeing the opposite. In the most fearful of environments, the classic impediments to creativity appear to have been given no quarter. People around the world are, surprisingly, finding new ways to connect with the world and to be creative.
We see sparkles of creativity all around us! Education has switched from classrooms to our homes. From our yoga or fitness studios, we now have access through our screens to countless and different class styles around the world. For some, learning to cook a new recipe each day has become something new to get excited about. Teleworking, getting together with family via a computer screen, and attending your favorite concert or self-development event from the comfort of your couch at home have suddenly become our brand-new routines. Through applause, balconies and windows have become new portals to supporting each other, to spreading kindness, and to showing solidarity with those on the front lines taking care of us. Individuals and businesses are challenging the habitual, finding new ways and innovative solutions in these uncertain times. We are definitely living in more creative times!
What happened to the belief that creativity is best left to those with the gift for it? What silenced the self-limiting voice in our heads telling us to get back in our box?
Our minds have been so polluted with our busy lives—with routines, lack of time, lack of us—that, in a big way, it has killed our creative spirit. Maybe the pandemic is also serving another purpose—helping to declutter the individual and collective mind and enabling us to become more transparent.
Creativity is a sign of just that—of a growing clarity or transparency within ourselves. It looks as if social distancing has brought a new and different point of view to our lives.
And this is not the first time that has happened. Did you know that Isaac Newton flourished during the outbreak of the Great Plague, the last stage of the bubonic plague, between summer 1665 and spring 1667? With Cambridge University shuttered, Newton retreated to his family home, where he laid the groundwork for his famous theories of gravity. And it wasn’t just Newton. William Shakespeare wrote some of his best poems and plays while plague forced a closure of London’s theatres.
Interestingly, chaos, time, and being isolated (or inside ourselves) have proved a good breeding ground for breaking the patterns of our mind that work by repetition. And a transparent mind free of conditioning is the best ground for our creativity to arise.
In nature, seeds are isolated within the darkness of the earth and eventually emerge with their different shapes and colors to inspire us. The same goes for the caterpillar that retreats into a chrysalis to emerge as a butterfly. Animal, human, and crystal gestation also happens in absolute darkness, and out of this creative process comes the wonderful diversity that we witness every day.
I myself have gone through this process not just once but several times.
The name of my “pandemic” was being unhappy with my life—not having a life of my own. I lived in uneasiness, in very difficult relationships, always in fear of emotional abandonment or being alone, with constant feelings of not being good enough and that there was no way out of this situation.
Motivated to find solutions, I decided to go on a journey of self-exploration that led me to study ancient philosophies around the world, including Advaita Vedanta, Tibetan Buddhism, and shamanic practices. Along this journey was where I was introduced to quartz crystals, and that sole experience changed my life forever—in such a way that, after that trip, I decided to become a crystal healer. It has been more than twenty years since then. And over and over again, I have witnessed how, using crystals as tools, my clients have switched from living a life they were not happy with to living a life they love living. My clients include many creatives and leaders—who innovate, bring to the world new ideas, and create new positive resonance and who are living not only their dream life but also their purpose and bringing so much good to the world.
If we think about human suffering as a kind of darkness, then crystal energy is what brings light and allows us to see all that is hidden inside. Quartz crystals have been used since ancient times in sacred sites to help human potential shine. Today, we know, thanks to their use in modern technology, that crystals can send, receive, transform, and balance energy. In the same way, they can be used to heal you from trauma, release old patterns keeping you stuck, and balance your resonance—so you can take your next step in your evolution as a human being and bring to light your awesome potential. And using crystals as tools will help you not only to become a creator of your best life, but also to help others create the same.
Creativity is not just bringing forth original ideas; the act of creation involves self-actualization. Real creativity is born from inside of us. Becoming transparent make us better containers to self-actualize and to continuously receive inspiration to improve our lives, as well as others’ lives.
This particular crisis is helping to change our resonance. It’s helping our present society look ahead to the future toward better overcoming obstacles in more creative ways and making better choices.
People are truly resonating with new interpretations of common reality. Problems are being solved precisely because people are transcending their conditioning and, from their transparency, applying their creativity meaningfully. But know that you don’t actually need a pandemic to bring out your creative juices. When you choose to work consistently on yourself using quartz crystals as tools, being creative is just who you are. You stop copying others—in order to be you and to bring new ideas into the world. Don’t wait for a pandemic to enlighten you; enlighten yourself from within using crystals as tools. Don’t miss the great opportunity to become your best you. The world needs you!
