Reflecting on the seven Cerra intentions at www.cerra.com gives me a sense of self awareness and peace. This is especially helpful when you have had a stressful day or week. Something about reminding yourself to stay grounded and find peace actually helps you do so. The Cerra Seven Intentionsare: grounded, creative energy, gratitude, loving kindness, courage, wisdom, and inspiration.
Recently of the seven the one that stands out most to be is creative energy. I feel that my passion for creativity has really made me grow as a person. If this seems like an odd statement let me explain. I have always needed a creative outlet in my life. I consider myself a pretty creative person. In my current phase of life my creative outlet is Shibley Smiles. However what started out as my creative outlet in the way of designing as slowly changed and helped me grow and come out of my shell.
Recently I talked about my trip to LA to attend a press junket. Though I was excited I was extremely nervous to the point that I was almost sorry I had agreed to go. I remembered, however, that I had decided to let my blog open avenues for me and for me to seize these opportunities and step outside my comfort zone. I was so thankful that I did because the experience was amazing. Though I didn’t ask any questions when interviewing the talented actors, writers, and directors and instead sat by and watched, I realized and important thing. I could do this!
The creative energy that I feel on a daily basis wants to be free. I feel a shift and change that I can’t help be excited about. I’ve made the conscious decision to allow my creativity to have reign and help me grow and occasionally help me step out of my box. When I allow this to happen I feel energized, accomplished, and full of life. I can not imagine my life without creativity and the passion to grow and learn.
Shibley Smiles means many things to me. It allows me to put my thoughts to paper (or the web), extra income for my family, experiences for both myself and my family, try things I would otherwise not, and definitely a place to allow my creativity energy to take over and shine.
