As a sensitive person, it is important to channel all the energy that we absorb. It is also important to stay aware and in the moment, and practicing our creativity is a way to do this. In my own life, I have found that I am happiest when I am most creative. One of the ways I do this is through photography.
For the longest time, unexpressed creativity clouded my mind. It is only recently that the clouds have started lifting. My hunch is that some of the anxiety that HSPs (sometimes) have is rooted in unexpressed creativity – the stories swirling in our minds, the pictures not taken, the paintings not attempted. Not doing these things is a kind of soul death. Attempting them is like awakening the soul again.
As I have started practicing my creativity, I have found that trying to reach for too much is counter-productive. Just begin and be in the moment. Take baby steps. Doing a little every day opens up our life and heart to doing more gradually.
