Creativity is an inborn capacity for thinking differently than most, seeing differently, and making connections and perceiving relationships others miss. But most importantly, it is the ability to then extrapolate contextually useful ways of employing that data: to create something that meets a specific challenge. By this definition, creativity is merely a tool; it does not convey skill. For a dedicated few, though, this inborn capacity is then further augmented by certain disciplines, including:

ongoing curiosity,
the desire and habit of looking more deeply into things than others care to,
the habit of comparing stimulus with result, and
a habit for qualitative discrimination.

Creativity is not necessarily inborn , one has to develop it and sharpened gradually . By only focusing on Chakras empowerment .The chakras are subtle energy centers in our auric bodies that affect our physical, emotional and mental health. Different cultures worldwide recognize the presence of these subtle energy centers, for example the Tibetan Bonpo model, and the Incan Pukios system, to name but a few. However the most well known and widely accepted chakra system is the Hindu system with seven main centers along the spine, starting at the base and rising to the crown center above the head.
Each major chakra has a nearby gland associated with it, for example the heart chakra enter is located near the physical heart. There is even scientific evidence for chakras such as Kirlian photography, and studies conducted by Dr. Valerie Hunt at UCLA on electromagnetic output of various individuals and subjects. Dr. Motoyama, a scientist and Shinto priest has also conducted similar resear ...more

Hi , I felt creativity is inborn. It is hardly possible to inculcate or sharpen it. One may try to do it ,still there will be a limit to reach to an outstanding level. But all people are gifted with some or other creativity. One person must be able to recognize his own inborn talents and put the required efforts to it to give a shape.The talents I find in my own siblings, i dont find with me ,where as what interest me also was never seen they to have it.So it can be inborn only. Even if one has inborn creativity, he/she also need to have the passion to make use of it , need to keep inspired to work on it, Also need to be lucky for others to encourage it ,appretiate it and accept it.Due to discouragement and lack of support ,some people's creativty face death or gets terminated in the sprouting stage itself..............!
