Affirmations for Creativity
Using affirmations can be a powerful way to improve our self-image and success habits. But did you know they can also be a great way to boost your creativity? Our mindsets play a large role in how we prioritise our creative needs, as well as how much confidence and courage we feel in pursuing our creative goals. So crafting a supportive mindset can be really helpful if creative living is important to you.
How affirmations can help creativity:
Your sense of self, your self-image and confidence all affect which actions you take, and which ones you resist or avoid. You may have a great idea for a book or film or collection, but if you don’t have the confidence, courage or even just the curiosity to ‘lean into it’, it may never get past the idea stage. Affirmations can help you build the confidence you need to take those Inspired Actions.
Repeating an inspiring or empowering mantra can help to boost flagging creative spirits. Alternatively, you could do a Power Rant – read out or make up a whole range of phrases that uplift and inspire you and get you back into flow. Just a minute or two of focusing on the right phases can work miracles on your energy and creative spark. And when you’re feeling energised and inspired, you can more easily get back into your zone – where the lovely creative magic happens.
Intention is a powerful force. When you decide to use affirmations to support your creative life, that’s a declaration that your creativity is important to you.
Your subconscious, muse, the universe, the creativity angels – whoever you feel is supporting and guiding you when you create – that force seems to notice your intention and responds favourably. We don’t need to completely understand the mysteries of creativity to harness its magic, and intention seems to have a power of its own.
So, are you open to the idea of boosting your mindset to improve your creativity?
Here are some examples to get you started.
