My spirituality is deeply connected to my creativity. Unfortunately, I quite often feel creatively blocked which means I'm also, you guessed it, spiritually blocked. I have such a deep-seated NEED to express my creativity and so much trouble doing so. Can anyone relate?
About a year and a half ago, maybe longer, I carved out a small corner in my basement for myself as a rudimentary creative space. It was wonderful and peaceful...and short-lived. On a particularly rainy day, I went down to the basement and spotted water on the floor. I tracked it back to a crack in the foundation in the corner of the basement. Guess which corner. I pulled everything out of the corner to protect my items and my artwork. It's never made it back. To our credit, my partner and I researched and attempted to patch the crack ourselves, but it didn't take, and, like many, we are not in the financial position to spend the many on a professional fix right now. So, my creative space is gone, the basement is a mess, and I try to find other ways to express myself creatively in order to connect with my spirituality: I work on my website, I design social media posts, and I co-host art & yoga workshops. I am grateful for these outlets 💙
