“Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.”~ Ray Bradbury
Creativity isn’t something we do through sheer force of will. It isn’t a problem that has a logical solution. It doesn’t arise when we demand its undivided presence and attention.
Creativity is something we coax into expression. It’s a divine manifestation of our soul. It comes forth when we honor it, nurture it, and remain mindfully unattached to its result. In short, creativity is Genius in action.
Because I deeply believe in the potent, healing power of Genius creativity, I’ve crafted the Genius Creation Tarot Spread for all the would-be artists, writers, gardeners, musicians, crocheters, chefs, and dynamic powerhouses out there. If you’re finding it difficult to nurture your creative Genius into its fullest expression, this spread is for you.
Genius Creation Tarot Spread
- Enemy of the Genius: the barrier that’s blocking my creative flow.
- Shadow Aspect: the unconscious fear that my barrier is made of.
- Incineration: actionable advice for burning down the barrier.
- Tributary: alternative channel I can drink from while my main channel clears.
- Friend of the Genius: archetype of inspiration and artistic evolution.
When you read the cards in each position, pay close attention to your emotional and intellectual responses. Do you “agree” with the messages that the cards are conveying to you? If not, why? If so, where are these messages leading you?
Remember: tarot readings can only show us the door. We are the ones who must open it. Good luck on the next chapter of your journey, and may you take the next step on your life path with confidence and clarity!
