THE NEGATIVE AFFECTS OF DENYING YOUR CREATIVITY



Many, many years ago, I walked away. from a dance career and ultimately my creativity when I left an audition for the Academy Awards in tears. I had blown the audition. Claude Thompson – master instructor and choreographer, was in charge of the audition and choreography of the awards show. 
I had taken many master classes with Claude and I knew his technique and style.  He even looked at me quizzically afterwards. I stumbled out of the audition blind from the tears that coursed down my face. 

Many years later, I am feeling the affects of denying my creativity and the many gifts God bestowed on me.  Fear, rage, and depression have kept me from drawing, teaching and choreographing dance, and singing. The only creative thing I have done was write; which is not enough for me.  As a result, I have experienced swollen glands and throat, tooth and gum problems, and pain in my jaw, and stuttering.

Chakras are energy centers that are spread throughout the body. There are seven chakras that interact with one another.  When they are out of sync, they can impact us negatively - emotionally, physically, and psychologically. Each chakra is associated with particular functions within the body and with specific life issues and the way we handle them, both inside ourselves and in our interactions with the world. As centers of force, chakras can be thought of as sites where we receive, absorb, and distribute life energies. Through external situations and internal habits, such as long-held physical tension and limiting self-concepts, a chakra can become either deficient or excessive—and therefore imbalanced.

The throat chakra governs self - expression, communication of feelings, speaking the truth, and holding secrets.  When the throat chakra is out of whack; it can affect your creativity, open the door for addictions, and negatively influence your decision, faith, and criticism monitors.  Anger is also stored in the throat.
Fear of retribution often kept me from expressing myself at my work and living situations.  Now I am more honest with myself and others, I journal, blog, and express my self more creatively.  I am planning a space in my new apartment that I am moving into just for my creative projects.  Do not deny your creativity!  Express yourself.  Do not allow depression, rage, and fear stop you from being an authentic, creative, and purposeful human being!
