  Aligning with your inner truth calls for a moment to moment commitment to honesty, release, embracing what is and loving yourself - no matter how things appear. It’s being the living embodiment of “flow” and acting as a living creative expression in motion.   In every sense, aligning with your inner truth is a commitment, as you resonate with what you believe in your heart to be true.

What Would You Create If Time Didn’t Matter?

  I don’t know about you, but the element of time definitely plays a role in what I choose to create.   It takes time to connect with an idea and it’s possibilities, gather resources and shift into “creative mode”. In addition, creativity requires us to feel like it’s “worth it" to start on a project and consistently follow through until it’s finished, whether it’s for yourself or a client.   And there’s also that perfection part of us that can slip in, wondering … [Read more...]

Heal the Survival Self, Dream With the Thriving Self

  What part of you wants to create and allows yourself to dream - the survival self or the thriving self?   It’s an important question to ask.   The creative dreams, goals and hopes we hold dear are clearly connected to an aspect within us. So the question becomes, is the impulse to create coming from a place of pure joy (thriving self), or a place of safety (survival self)? Are you willing to hear the answer?   To find out, it helps to get a clearer … [Read more...]

  How we manage our personal filters, or practice discernment, is a pretty important skill. Especially now.   Between political shifts, media overload and a general sense of energetic imbalance in the world, it can be hard to hear our own truth - or hear it loudly enough to focus on it for more than two minutes.   When it comes to times of big change in the external world, we can’t help but change, too. The influence of new triggers or the discovery of fresh … [Read more...]

Common Creative Roadblocks for Empaths

    Creativity is a natural trait for empaths and HSP’s because we feel and emote so deeply, yet, these same abilities also build up unique creative roadblocks that can be hard to spot and clear.   Between managing our own feelings and navigating the energy of family, friends, relationships and the world at large, an “emotional stew” forms pretty quickly. Soon it’s difficult to clearly sense what we really want to create because our desires are buried deep under so … [Read more...]

    Being true to yourself as you transition into the energy of a new year sounds good on paper, but can be a little challenging to put into practice.   January can feel packed with demands, expectations and a call to kick-off something, anything new. Hope and excitement energy feels invigorating, and is a nice shift to help inspire your creative heart. The same energy can also scatter your attention, especially when it’s blended with an underlying sense of urgency … [Read more...]

As we all close out 2016 in our own way, it's easy to think about the creative "to-do's" or physical accomplishments that have come to pass. They serve as concrete markers of our efforts and the goals we set out to meet. And let's be honest - who doesn't enjoy seeing a physical path to creative expression and accomplishment? It always inspires a reason to celebrate and connect with a feeling of appreciation!   At the same time, it's also easy to slip into thinking about what me missed … [Read more...]

Mindfulness and Crafting a Creative Self-Care Practice

  Mindfulness is a key part of a creative self-care practice. Nourishing your inner spark is a mental act as much as it is an emotional and spiritual one, offering up the opportunity for you to honor, expand and be in the flow of your creative gift moment to moment.   Yet, “minding” the way you talk to yourself and the choices you make, especially during the holiday season, can be a bit challenging to put into action.   Between personal holiday commitments and the need … [Read more...]

Embrace Unpredictable Energy to Create Something New

  Embracing unpredictable energy feels invigorating and terrifying all at the same time. The uncomfortable mesh of sensations is a rush that can knock your root chakra off it’s axis, leaving you feeling ungrounded and out of sorts. As a result you may feel unsure about, well, pretty much everything - including how to process it all.   Little out-of-the-blue synchronicities or big sudden changes can have the same physical, emotional and spiritual impact, sending the mind into … [Read more...]

  It’s no secret that seeing a limitation in life is sometimes easier than seeing what’s possible. When old mental patterns team up with ego and fear, the power of what you want can seem too far away and impossible to reach.   However, limitations like a health challenge, lost opportunity, broken relationship or difficulty in reaching a certain level of achievement are all common human experiences. The personal stories created as part of the journey to overcome what’s … [Read more...]
