Courage to Create Anew

  There are times when no matter how much we try to piece things together as they are and "make it work", the time has come to create anew. To ask deeper questions. To actively honor intuitive hits and the way we really feel deep in our heart, while coming to peace with what no longer resonates and let go. Sometimes all at once.    These elements are no small things for the heart and soul to consider. Attention to honoring them fully requires radical honesty with … [Read more...]

  If you identify as a creative or entrepreneur, you are secretly, or not so secretly, looking to tap into next level creativity. Especially when things feel stale and too predictable.   You can take things into your own hands and actively cause a little chaos to shake things up. And while blowing up your own life can be an interesting distraction and adrenaline rush, it’s not always a way to next level creative expression (but sometimes necessary).   So for the m … [Read more...]

What’s Your Biggest Obstacle to Creative Wholeness?

  Exploring the idea of creative wholeness is one of my passions as a creativity coach, intuitive, and writer. So this weekend when I selected The World card from The Wild Unknown deck to kick off my Sunday meditation, it got me thinking about the concept in a visionary way.     I blog regularly about the idea of creative wholeness in its pieces, providing insights and ways to deepen a personal creative practice or mindset.  However, I was still drawn to writing … [Read more...]

Break Away From Assumptions and Open Up New Creative Opportunities

  I think it’s pretty safe to say everyone makes assumptions time to time that limit our ability to notice creative opportunities.   Our assumptions can be rooted in the things we’ve learned, love, or have been burned by, and have come to shape our vision and values. Family influence and personal relationships fortify those assumptions even further.   As intuitive beings, we also rely on the way we feel as part of our decision making process. Even when our intuition … [Read more...]

Why It’s Essential to Blaze a Fresh Trail Between Playing it Safe and Taking Risks

  We each have a unique way of playing it safe or taking risks with our life choices and self-expression.    It’s influenced by our age, personal circumstances, levels of fear, and patterns we’ve learned while growing up. The hurt we have accumulated, and held onto, also plays a big role in how we blaze this trail for ourselves, and what we expect is possible for us.   For example, risks within a relationship may seem so much scarier than the ones along our car … [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 much … [Read more...]

Acknowledge and Honor Emotions to Take Creative Self-Care to a New Level

  Every road leads through emotions and triggers, especially when it comes to creativity.   As an emotionally-fueled experience, creativity guides you towards what you feel, fear or want to understand more clearly about yourself and the world around you. And when it comes to truly practicing creative self-care, emotions are the guiding force.   In a way, you are always dancing between what you acknowledge you feel, are afraid to feel or don’t understand how to feel. … [Read more...]

Feeling Empowered and Cultivating your Creative Sense-of-Self

  When you feel empowered you see opportunity everywhere. Your creative sense of self is strong, confident and feels free to be curious, to follow the little flutters in your gut and trust your intuition. Life flows by and the bumps don’t matter; the heart truly understands these setbacks are temporary and you will make it through one way or another.   However, at times when faith in yourself or path is shaken, and you feel anything but empowered, the quality of the o … [Read more...]
