Today’s note is brief, creative one.
I’m guessing you’re in some sort of transition right now.
Things might not feel totally clear.
Maybe there’s some impatience or frustration apparent for you.
If you’re feeling any sort of discontent, know that it’s totally normal. In fact, it’s an essential part of being a creative being.
Next week I’ll have something new and exciting to share that might help shake you out of any icky feelings that might be present, but until then I wanted to leave you with a note from the Muses you might need to hear....
[via Sonia Choquette’s Ask Your Guides cards:]
Sooner or later in our evolutionary process, each of us begins to realize that it’s not the having that fulfills our soul, but rather it’s the act of creating that brings us satisfaction.
Contentment in what we’ve created - no matter how grand - inevitably subsides, and our creative juices once again long to flow. That’s why the once-ideal partner ceases to mesmerize, the perfect job eventually becomes mundane, and the great adventure becomes tedious.
Although there’s a lot to be said for enjoying what we have now, we must nevertheless respect the fact that our basic nature as creative beings is...to create. Without the process, we can’t be fully content - at least not for long.
Your Muses are present, and they call on you now to embrace your creative discontent and undertake new projects. Their message: “See your frustration as a longing to learn more, expand more, dare more, and create more.”
What are you feeling frustrated with?
What are you longing to create?
Let's talk about it in the comments. After all, it's more fun to get these things out in the open than it is to be silently tormented, alone with your thoughts. (Am I right?)
Can't wait to hear from you.
to creating our way,
p.s. Did you miss the live broadcast of our Virtual Showcase? Check it out here:
There were tears, there laughs, there were beautiful drawings and touching words. Oh, and there were dance breaks!
Anneris shared her inspiring story of overcoming her own fears around putting her creative self out there, and she shared the project that she's been working on: her beautiful children's book with an inspiring message.
Listen in and you'll be inspired. Towards the end I walk you through a brief exercise and movement segment to help you tap into your own creative desires and put them in motion.
