The Creative Life

Creativity is sacred and it is not sacred.
What we make matters enormously, and it doesn’t matter at all.
We toil alone, and we are accompanied by spirits.
We are terrified, and we are brave.
Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege.
The work wants to be made, and it wants to be made through you. — Elizabeth Gilbert 🦋

I just returned from a five day conference on how to play big in the world of entrepreneurship. I had to ask myself if I have the courage to bring forth the wisdom hidden within me. Am I ready to fully embrace a life of enchantment and spirit by being ALL In as a spiritual energy healer and transformation coach? Will I allow my fear of letting my Light shine bright get in the way of my dreams?
The answer came clear as the day is long. Yes. I am ready with both feet. Who am I not to be? I am brave. I am a child of the Cosmos. And at my root I believe service to others is my purpose. While the voice of fear will probably always be along for the ride, I know I can embrace it..and keep it moving. I am ready to crack wide open the world of magic, wonder and joy that is my birth rite. It’s yours too.
The jewels that we each have are simply waiting to be uncovered. I just created the permission slip for myself. You can too. It’s time to start (if you haven’t already) to flow into the treasures hidden within. Express yourself as it works for you. Write a book, paint a picture, speak on a stage, go ice skating. It makes no difference what it is, all that matters is getting off the roundabout of life that has you stuck. Take time to find what brings the joy and then do it. More often. And then more and more. Soon you’re an expert at the very thing that brings you joy! Living a creative life filled with awe doesn’t mean the same for me as you. What is the same though, is the undeniable feeling of gratitude I have when I see another being fully embrace their divinity and their humanity.
I’ve only explored a drop in the ocean, I am now ready to explore the whole ocean in one drop. I am grateful for you and your dreams. If I can support your quest, it would be my honor. Take the first step, just pause and get curious.
