Creative Self Check List

We spend a lot of time learning how to recognize and manage our reactive self (which is important and valuable), but what if we used as much energy getting to know and express our creative self?

If there is a part of us that knows everything and has access to what we need in every moment, how do we know it when we see it? Here is a check list to get you started from healer Candace Lienhart:

  • Sense of humor
  • Calm, centered, mindful, present (not emotionally charged)
  • Open to a variety of solutions (vs being attached to one answer)
  • Willing to look at what is going on (vs. focusing on what is wrong)
  • Has information and reference materials
  • Can call a friend for help
  • Does no harm or damage
  • Never “outclassed”
  • Authentic- Not afraid to expose self
  • Nothing to lose
  • Knows the answer sits next to problem (if it is yours)
  • Want to better his/her own best (vs. compete against others)
  • No punishment or weapons
  • Has information from the past but doesn’t live there
  • Tells the truth
  • Alive in each moment (Doesn’t know in advance- can’t plan)
  • Has no place to fall
  • Full protection- Safe place because connected to highest truth
  • Neutral (vs. fear, anxiety, lack of self-worth, guilt, anger)
  • Strives for the highest and best of all
  • Knows there is room for everyone to be fabulous
  • Suspends judgment and quick assessments

The best way to begin is to invite your highest self to the party by asking.
