Natalya Pazdnikova's Guide To Unblock Your Creativity
What Is Creativity? How Can You Unblock Your Creativity?
Creativity is the ability to see an abundance of variations.
Creativity and expression are natural for creatures with self awareness like human beings. If you don’t think you are a creative person, it only means your creative expression is blocked and you need to unblock your creativity, because we are creative beings and we have come here to help further create in this world. It is good to recognize if you need to unblock your creativity, because recognizing the problem is already half of the battle to fixing the problem, right?

Have you ever noticed that your creative thinking arises each time you work on yourself psychologically, energetically or physically? Maybe this creative type of thinking comes in the form of realizations, insights, new ideas, inspirations, or answers to questions you may have had? Have you ever had this kind of experience? When you become happier, more free, and more joyful, you are stepping more and more out of your usual perception of life into a bigger picture perception which is more creative in nature. You are on the path to unblock your creativity. You will begin to effortlessly find solutions and receive ideas for any area of your life which may include your art, work, or business.
Creativity isn’t limited to painting an abstract piece of artwork or making music like many think it is. It is 100% applicable to hard sciences as well as in the business world. Again, creativity is the ability to perceive an abundance of possibilities for any situation. It allows a person to see what “could be” in what might be considered to be common or ordinary. Learning how to unblock your creativity can open many doors and opportunities in your in life.
Balance Your Mind To Unblock Your Creativity
It is true that some people are more creative than others just like some people might be happier, healthier, or wealthier than others. What isn’t true is the misconception that there is an inherent difference between logical and creative people. An easy example of this would be the commonly used expression that someone is right brained or left brained. This makes it sound like we are born to use only one side of the brain which doesn’t really make sense. A more accurate way of expressing this idea would be: a person lives their life from a more logical and analytical perspective or from a more creative and imaginative perspective.
It does NOT mean that a person can’t become more logical or more creative, and that they are limited to either logic or creativity. The human mind is so amazingly complex and fascinating - It doesn’t operate from one side only. We can develop different sides to our psyche and no one is limited to a certain mentality/way of being. Everyone has the potential to be creative just as everyone can develop their critical thinking skills. You must learn to balance your mind to unblock and use your creativity. When you can balance your mind, you have the power to choose when to be logical and when to be creative. You can unblock your creativity and use it at your command!
Developing and balancing the creative and logical ways of thinking is the recipe for happiness and fulfillment, and having the ability to think logically as well as creatively helps tremendously to connect to your intuition and successfully navigate through life. Balance your mind to achieve your goals more efficiently and effectively.
As children we are all creative but depending on the amount of conditioning we receive most of us block out this creative aspect of ourselves sooner or later. You must actively work to unblock your creativity and then learn to balance your mind to help realize your vision.
I had to unblock my creativity. By the time I was a teenager my creative flow was super blocked. I remember getting into photography at the age of 18 and struggling to come up with ideas for pictures. I didn’t know what I could take pictures of (apart from my only model – my cat). This was back when we didn’t have Instagram or Pinterest to get inspiration from.
My creativity was so blocked that no ideas would come to my mind. In fact, I’ve felt like that from a young age. All this changed in one moment when my creative channel suddenly “opened” so wide that I could barely stand on my own two feet. I couldn’t handle all the inspiration coming to me. My stomach suddenly felt sick and I started to have a migraine, and when I sat on the couch the only thing I was able to do was ask for a piece of paper and pen.
For the next two hours I was overloaded with ideas for my photo shoots. I sketched and made notes, and my friend stared and worried about me the entire time. I couldn’t really explain what was going on nor did I want to. In that moment all I cared about was not to miss any idea that was coming to me. They would come so fast that I couldn’t keep up with writing all of them down.
Just imagine: my head was so creatively blocked my whole life and then suddenly an entire magic jar opened up. Even though it was exhausting on my body and psyche, I was really happy. Something magical seemed to have occurred and I was inspired to the fullest. I had never felt this way before! Every idea seemed so unique, fresh, and rare and I loved each one of them. This experience inspired me to help you unblock your creativity as well!
Develop Positive Thinking To Unblock Your Creativity
Prior to this incident I was taking a psychology course that taught me how to work through my negative thought patterns and beliefs. The goal was to develop positive thinking habits which unintentionally led me to unblock my creativity. I don’t remember what I was working on at the time, but it doesn’t really matter because what I figured out was that any type of healing, self-work and positive mentality unblocks creative flow. Creative energy is the source energy itself. It is the universal energy that creates worlds. I don’t like to use the word God but, the fact that people call it the Creator means it must have something to do with creativity. When you unblock your creativity, you are also unblocking your connection with the source, the universe, the field of information, the collective consciousness - call it as you please.
Just think about it. Nature is the most creative artist of all! You are a part of this nature and universe, thus you are the nature and the universe itself. We as humans evolved to the point where we not only feel aware as conscious beings, but we are also intelligent enough to create further. Life force energy created you and continues to create through you now. Once you develop positive thinking patterns, you build a more consistent connection with this creative energy, even your dreams become more positive, colorful and conscious. Everyone is creative at their core. Learning to unblock your creativity is essential for personal growth!

My creative inspiration has opened and overflowed many times since that first time. The next time it happened was in Ikea where I was again overloaded with new ideas for decorating my apartment and I had a stomach ache, a headache, and couldn’t walk just like the first time. It was almost as intense as the first time. I had to sit down on a couch right there in the store and needed to write everything that was coming to my head.
How often do you get the experience of feeling overly excited and over-loaded with creative ideas at night while you are supposed to be asleep? If this happens it means that you don’t let enough of this creative energy out during the day. When the day is over and you start to calm down for the night, the brain might start firing because the creative life force finally has a chance to flow through you.
If these creative energies are allowed to flow more often when you balance your mind, there won’t be any big blockages and in turn there won’t be any extreme explosions like I had. It takes time to develop positive thinking to balance your mind and unblock your creativity, but when we are balanced we have the ability to turn that flow on and off at will.
Learn To Know Yourself To Unblock Your Creativity
There are two “opposite” categories of people in this world when it comes to creativity. One is extremely logical and rational. They not only block creative flow but all kind of magic that life has to offer like metaphysical experiences. On the other hand there are the dreamers and wonderers. These people tend to struggle with things like structure and common sense. Learn to know yourself, balance your mind and unblock your creativity by acknowledging which category you belong to.
Like I mentioned before, it is not that you are either one or the other. We are all both, but the problem is the absence of balance. Balance your mind! We can use dualistic perspectives on any subject we choose to look at and understand exactly where we are lacking that balance. This is because each of us are somewhere on the scale between extreme rationality and pure creativity. Learn to know yourself and balance your mind with that knowledge!
Let me use a personal example. I used to be so logical and analytical. Rationality was everything to me and I was proud of my logical capabilities. I would question and analyze everything. My learning abilities were extremely high and I could receive and apply a lot of information with ease. I felt like I could win any argument because my brain was so fast and on point. I also liked to be organized and productive.
Later on in my life’s journey I dove deep into metaphysics, energy work, as well as meditation, and I experienced something completely opposite to pure logical and analytical observation. I became extremely sensitive to energies. I had such a hard time focusing on one subject and it would take me forever to read a single page in a book. I became very psychically sensitive and intuitive. I started having all these different spiritual experiences almost on a daily basis and it was as if I were in a trance from the moment I woke up to the moment I would go to sleep. I felt like I had been swept up by an incredibly strong spiritual wave that I felt I was losing touch with physical reality.
This mysterious, multidimensional, creative and psychic world opened up to me. It is incredible and accessible to us all, but only a few people ever experience even a tiny bit of it and it is unfortunate. Our reality is truly so incredibly fascinating and magical. I passionately wish to help you balance your mind and unblock your creativity so you can experience the same magic!
Develop positive thinking and balance your mind. The way to get to this place is not by the extremes of logic or creativity, but through the balancing of the two. Too much logic keeps you away from magic, and too much magic keeps you away from the physically focused logical reality and common sense. Learn to balance your mind, unblock your creativity and develop critical thinking to live your dreams and successfully navigate yourself through life!
So, how can you develop positive thinking to let your creativity flow?
First, I would say to raise your vibration - this is the best method to unblock your creativity! Choose one spiritual practice that you will include in your daily routine and dedicate yourself to it. Raise your mood, your state of consciousness by doing things you like and take better care of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally.
Second, work on your psyche: work on your fears, limiting beliefs, and everything that limits you psychologically, it takes some self love to dedicate to such "work" as psychological healing is the most sensitive for the ego, and only brave souls commit to it. Deal with every area of life you feel stuck in as well as any emotion, unhealthy attachment or bad habit you find are hard to let go off.

Third, watch your thoughts. We are so over-identified with our thoughts that we forget to clear and navigate our mental processes. You are not your thoughts, in fact most of your thoughts are the voices of your traumatized parts that cal
