Do you have imagination and constantly have ideas or projects coming in mind? Do you treat those ideas like gifts?
I have a vivid imagination and I am constantly inspired with project ideas. It is an open flow of abundance. When I receive an idea, I write it down and sometimes with the complete details, and…as I do not always work on them right away, I end up with a pile of notebooks and papers of wonderful projects to work on.
Do you have those piles too?
Some of the inspired ideas might be for long term projects, crafts, or future articles and books, or projects to start only when another one needs to be completed first, like the next step to it. Others might be something that can be started and finished the same day.
The notebooks and piles of papers does not mean that there is procrastination involved, simply that it is a step by step fun that needs the next inspiration to move on.
Working on few things and working from inspirations to know which project to work on, may one day require some decluttering. Keeping the kitchen table or office space clean and clear is needed once a while.
One day while clearing the space I needed for another purpose, I came up with the spontaneous idea to put the piles of papers in the beautiful box that was next to it. At first, it was to hide all the papers in one place, making it easy to take out the next morning to continue, but then as I was looking at the boxes I already had for a coming holiday, and all the projects I had going on in separate piles, I went further with that idea.
I went out to get cute boxes to separate each subject. It felt like if I was taking care of my wonderful inspired actions I once received and were there waiting for me to progress. I enjoyed each second in choosing the right box for each one of them, just like I would do for a gift I would give to someone I care for.
Each project became one gift. A gift I once received, and now they were all mine to open when I was feeling inspired to work on them. Sometimes, I open a box to add something more to it, and sometimes, one box remains open for a week because am working on it and it is my main task.
Receiving an inspiration is a gift.
Receiving an inspiration is something to develop.
Yes, sometimes it requires to partner with someone else to see it through and other times it is simply being in co-creation with the Universe, to partner with the Universe.
I like to leave them out there so I can see and enjoy them, they are not hidden in the closet. Some are on shelves and others on my working space. Those boxes are not there to store what’s in it away but to remind me they are gifts and to take care of them. To remind me how beautiful that idea in that box is.
Show appreciation by taking care of those inspirations and believe you can bring them forward to see the light.
Having abundance of ideas and abundance of creativity is like receiving lots and lots of wonderful gifts. Take care of them and work on them so you can receive some more with pleasure and appreciation. Working on them is unwrapping them.
Treat your inspiration as a gift sent from the Universe.
Take care of your inspirations and use them, like you would wear that bracelet or that new shirt or anything you just received.
Each inspiration, as crazy as one might sound, is something possible. It is something maybe others might also be working on, but we received it for our own use, our own creativity, our own unique touch, our own environment, our own sharing or our own business.
Some of the wonderful creative ideas might not be intended to bring an income although they could, but while enjoying working on them and developing them, you put yourself into a receiving mode and might hear other inspirations if you pay attention. Sometimes, they are just tools for your personal growth, to learn something or to inspire others.
Each inspiration serves its purpose, so it is important to listen to them and receive them as a gift from the Universe. Wrap them in a beautiful gift boxes so you can open them when you feel like it, on inspired actions.
Follow your dreams, follow your inspirations.
