Creative Energy and Inspiration can be closely related. You may feel awe while in the process of creating, or at the sight of something someone else has created. You may also have had a moment of Inspiration that you feel compelled to capture and express in a creative way.
As you reflect on your month spent with Inspiration today, think about ways you can use your Creative Energy to sum up what inspires you. A few weeks ago, we posted a few ways to record the inspirational stories and moments from the Olympic Games. Consider one of those, or try this suggestion below.
Create an Inspiration Board
Download and print out our Inspiration Board to capture the details of a moment of awe you felt this summer.
Begin by becoming aware of what has inspired you this month, and all of the details surrounding it. Where were you? Who were you with? What sights, sounds, smells do you remember?
Once you feel fully aware of the details of the moment, fill it in with your thoughts and images from the occasion. If you have more than one photo, or have more to say than fits in the space allotted, don’t worry—feel free to reorganize the board in a way that works for you!
When finished, reflect on the experience. How did recalling an inspirational moment feel? What did you learn about yourself when using your Creative Energy to capture your feelings of awe?
Afterwards, paste the board into a scrapbook or journal for later reflection, or hang it somewhere where you will see it as a daily reminder of your Inspiration. You can even make it a ritual by printing out a new board each month to record your Inspirational moments.
We’d love to see your Inspiration Board and hear about the ways you like to capture your Inspiration using creativity. Leave a comment below, or post a photo of your creation on our Facebook page.
