This article is one of my first revelations recently ignited while undergoing a deep super conscious meditation.
All my life I have been regarded as being highly creative. At an early age, my creativity evolved from obtaining an honours degree in Architecture to then founding and directing an award-winning Creative Branding company. It wasn't until 2008 when I began focusing on the power of creativity and creative thinking as a strong catalyst for extracting and driving my WHY.
Now branded as Canada's Creative Coach and WHY master, I allocate significant energy towards inspiring thousands of people to EXTRACT and LIVE their WHY on a daily basis. A focus on creativity and/or co-creation can become an inspired catalyst for driving one's life purpose forward with sheer determination, passion and persistence. I refer to creativity in this context as Cellular Creativity or the igniting of our WHY cells that propel us to uncover and follow our life purpose.
I believe that all of us were born with a life purpose and our role is to uncover it so we can live an extraordinary life in total alignment. I further believe that this life purpose resides within a specific set of creative cells that when stimulated through inspired action they come to life and have the ability to communicate with others.
There are essentially 3 major components: 1) The Mind - when properly conditioned through the use of powerful visualization, meditation and affirmations, have the power to communicate our intention to these creative cells. 2) The Body - when properly fuelled with cellular nutrition on a daily basis has the ability to energize our creative cells to new levels of aliveness. This form of cellular nutrition causes a physical reaction much like the enigma cells inherent in a caterpillar also the driver of it transforming or metamorphosing into a butterfly. 3) The Soul - becomes the vehicle for connecting with others. The soul carries with it our intention and a powerful frequency or vibration that is able to meaningfully connect with others. You have heard the term: we're all connected. Well I believe, that our souls play a major part in this connectivity of our energies.
We all have the ability to go ignite this creative metamorphosis. Its not simply in some of us but rather in all of us. We were all meant to shine as humans, become self-actualized and release our full hidden potential. We live in a universe governed by creative laws. You have heard the term: Nurture your Soul, Feed your mind and Nurture your Body right? I believe that positive self-talk on its own is not a sufficient catalyst for stimulating this amazing creative process at a cellular level. Rather, all three must work in harmony to effectively stimulate this chain reaction.
I was first introduced to this concept during the research of my architectural thesis - referred to as urban stimulation of events practiced within the De-constructivist movement. A major influencer of this movement was Bernard Tschumi. Essentially he noted that the growth of urban cities in Europe were the result of the stimulation of urban events. For example, build an urban square at one end of a city and connect it in a linear fashion to another urban square and the creative forces, tension and energy polarized between these two points cause an incredible stimulation of other events.
Over the past 4 years I have ignited hundreds of entrepreneurs through this highly creative process. The first stage is known as the CREATIVE EXTRACTION, where a series of thought provoking questions are used with a the client enabling me to connect with their sub-conscious, their passions and their intention. Some have shared with me that this is an intuitive process, where I am able to go deep inside the individual and pull it out of them. Having fully embraced the power of this process, I truly believe that it is part of ‘Cellular Creativity’ and the soul being open to giving and receiving with its host. It sounds a bit biological, however, I believe that there are many forces at work within our universe: attraction, energy vibration and intention. When we start to believe that there are greater forces at work trying to connect our energies we will find that we all have the ability, the opportunity and even the responsibility to propel ourselves forward. When we all work this way, igniting our true potential, we are in fact serving the world with a far greater purpose. I believe that we weren't put on this earth to simply be a spectator of our lives, watching TV, paying bills, building and visiting more shopping malls. I believe we were meant to uncover and live our life purpose so we can inspire others to do the same. When we are living in this inspired state, we are living 'in-spirit' with our life purpose. In this state we are igniting our creative cells, nurturing our soul so we can connect with others. I recently founded a global movement known as DEFYENEURS - inspired entrepreneurs that extract and live their why so they can defy gravity in everything they do. When I put out a powerful intention to inspire 1 million people, visualized a world inspired, affirmed it, meditated on it, took powerful action by inspiring and igniting others, the HOW presented itself as a result of uncovering and igniting a powerful WHY through this inspired movement. These creative cells when ignited, I believe, essentially rise above and through us to defy gravity and connect with others through our soul.
[Mind - Body - Soul] the three work together to protect, stimulate, ignite, communicate and connect to our deeper WHY and connect with others. Its this state of vibration that we are able to influence motivate and inspire others to live extraordinary lives. Its in this state that makes people become aware and come alive by asking and living BIG questions. The opposite of this energetic state is living in a 'numbed-out' state with little passion and little zest for life! You only need to look at some of the most successful people in the world and they will share with you a common denominator that binds them all:
They uncovered their WHY by asking and living the questions:
- What is my Passion?
- What makes me come alive?
- What is my purpose?
- How can I serve the World?
- What legacy do I wish to create?
- What do I want to be remembered for?
I admire inspired leaders that pour themselves into others with a purpose to empower and elevate others. Inspired leaders believe in a greater purpose and practice collaborative energy. Helping others in this way helps humanity. This is the kind of world that I believe we are creating. By helping others Extract and Live their WHY we will evolve into a new level of inspired human beings.
This meditation inspired this article which in-turn inspired my 9th book: DEFYENEURS, Live your WHY. In this light, I now define WHY as: the World Helped by You.
