|GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO BE CREATIVE|
|BRACELETS GAVE ME PERMISSION TO BE CREATIVES|
|I as many individuals say they do not know what their “gifts” are. I did not know what my creative gifts were but I believe that God create me with a creative imagination but most just never learn what their gifts are. I went to a Catholic School and had to wear a uniform and right our of high school I met my husband and he decided what clothes I would wear and did the decoration of our home. Therefore, I was never in a situation that I had permission to tape into my Creative Imagination. When I was divorced for the very first time I was free to decide what I and my two children (a boy and a girl) would wear and how I would decorate my living space. But that was short lived because as I made clothing for myself and my children and decorate my two bedroom apartment. I was pleased with my own creations. But soon my associates started calling me difference and saying negative remarks, saying I had too many colors and the cloths I created they referred to as “worldly”. I soon realized that I did not have permission to use my creative imagination. So I stopped creating and got rid of the many colors. I actually had everything in my apartment black and white. I stopped using my Creative Imagination to the full and went along with my peers and lived a “simple life” for the next forty years.|
|From 1984 until 1993 I literally and figuratively lived in a black and white world. I thought it was Christian to live a simple and lowly life. I did not understand or know that I was a literal person, but being such I actually lived in an efficiency apartment in Japanese style. I was proud to live what I considered a simple and none materialist life style! In 1993 Jehovah told me to make a change, to add color to my life|
|I could not bring myself to tell about my feelings so I did what I do best...Express myself in what I am been told is poetry. To me the 450 plus "poems" I found in my journals are words I use to express my feelings in a way that does not cause me emotional pain. When expressing myself in poetry I am not speaking about myself I am just using my Creative Imagination. Using my creative imagination elevates me to a beautiful spiritual state of being. It is like stepping out of an airplane window onto a cloud where I recline and am rocked back and forth by the hand of God while angels sing in perfect melody and heavenly air blows on me, refreshing every fraction of my being. I am addicted to the experience. I can’t help myself I must create|
|Up until this time I had no problem in believing in Divine Guidance. Everything I believe God told me
was right, reasonable and made sense to me and I was able to do what I believe He told me to do.
Since I never gave myself permission to use my creative imagination I had no idea how creative I might be. About three years ago I started collecting bracelets. one day two individuals that I love very much were at my home and for some reason that I do not know I showed them my bracelets. I had about 50 bracelets in two draws. They said I was selfish and greedy to have so many bracelets and said I couldn’t wear them all. I was hurt to my heart but I said nothing. I continued to collect bracelets. The words “You cannot wear them all” kept ringing in my head. Then one day I made a reply to those words, I said: “I did not buy them to wear.” So I gave my creative imagination permission to be creative and the below is the results.
