For many people the idea is appealing; for others, it is intimidating. We hear about the stereotypical crazy artist who works in a flourish of creative frenzy. The frenetic activity is followed by periods of depression, alcoholism, drugs, or even suicide. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Vincent Van Gogh, Ludwig von Beethoven were all reported to live lives of emotional turmoil accompanying their exquisite artistic genius.
Creative genius can be inspired. It need not go hand-in-hand with mental illness.
Truly creative people are drawing upon divine energies and their lives can reflect this aware state of consciousness. For decades members of the School of Metaphysics have been conducting research into the inner levels of human consciousness. The fruit of this research is well-documented in thousands of Past Life Profiles and Intuitive Health Analyses given throughout the School’s history. These laid the foundation for the intuitive reports given to participants of Spiritual Initiation Sessions. These reports are awesome, even to those of us who include intuitive knowledge and practice in our daily lives. They are life transforming, and for that reason they are given only in cooperation with a mentor who accelerates the individual’s comprehension and integration of the intuitive knowledge received.
The Spiritual Focus Session entitled The Genius Code accentuates creative genius enabling you to bring out your highest creativity in a productive manner. An intuitive report assessing how you are presently drawing upon inner creative resources is given. This Creative Mind Report reveals how you can unfold creative genius in your consciousness. The following is an excerpt from a Creative Mind report revealing the connection between true creativity and our nature as children of God:
"This one is quite volatile in regards to his creativity.
"This is not to say that it is violent, for it is not. We see that it is explosive, however. And we see that this one is attached to explosions of creativity. We see that sometimes this is within bursts of inspiration in regards to concept or ideas. Sometimes it is in regards to emotional bursts of joy or a thrill, or excitement. We see that this is the way in which this one identifies that he is fully alive, that he is complete, that he is a vital creative being.
"We see that as long as this one is attached to this means of identifying himself, this one will find that although there is much that he does create in that way, it is less that what this one is capable of. For we see equally, that when this one is more peaceful or more relaxed there is equally the capacity for creation, and this is foreign to this one. He does not know much about this state.
"We see that it would be of benefit for this one to begin to disassociate the Self from the experience of creation. We see that this one becomes immersed in creation to the point of losing the Self. And we see that this is the degree to which this one is attached to the explosive nature of creation that has been given.
"Would suggest therefore that as this one would transcend or attempt to untangle the Self from the action of creation this one would then be able to identify more fully with the impetus for creation. It is the exploration of this impetus, what brings creation about, that will actually satisfy this one’s urge for discovery and excitement.
"We see that the emotional joy and excitement that this one experiences pale in comparison to what this one will discover. We see that it is actually a poor replacement for what this one is really wanting to experience. But nevertheless it is vital, it is alive, and it gives this one something. Would suggest to this one that this one need not give this up. There is not a sacrifice involved in this one becoming aware of the impetus, but it is a transcendent state, and it will necessitate this one being willing to let go of the attachment in being immersed. And being able to, in essence, rise above and beyond that to an entirely new level of experience. This then will free the creativity within this one to have the kind of broad range that this one desires, and finds at the present time through the explosiveness that has been described.
"You will also relate that which foster a movement in the energy exchange between the ethereal and the material for the cultivation of genius.
"...We see for this one that in regards to becoming seated or rooted deeper within the Self to find a place that is beyond the physical body, the physical senses, to identify the Self with, this might be the concept that this one has of the soul or of the spirit where this one begins to immerse the Self, the consciousness, in this so that then this one can create from this point of view.
"We see that this would alter the way that this one sees the world and experiences creation in a way that would be most delightful to the Self.
"Any suggestions on how to immerse the consciousness deeper in the soul?
"Periods of concentration upon attributes that this one would assign to the soul would be of benefit; making the reading material revolve around enlightened masters and ascended states; associating with those who have this type of consciousness or who are actively pursuing it. In any way that this one can fashion the life where this one’s desire would be supported, this would be of great benefit.
"Any activity that this one could pursue on his own such as those that have been given, daily meditation periods, learning how to utilize psychic healing, developing consciously controlled out-of-body experiences, or astral projection, developing and refining telekinesis, telepathy, intuitive skills. All of these ways would be of assistance in exercising the capacities of the soul, becoming aware of what the soul is through the actual experience of the soul." [81097BGC1]
