Hay House World Summit – Series 2 Release

May 12, 2016

Series2_cropped_600Last night I really enjoyed watching one of the movies in the Hay House World Summit Series 1 release called “Who is asking ‘Who am I’” with Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra.

Eckhart has a palpable quality of presence that is felt right through the screen and such an entertaining, quirky yet powerful way of giving us all a resonant experience of all that his words point towards.

Deepak’s delivery is quite different yet compelling and complementary with so many great reminders and insights such as ‘Time is just the movement of thought’ and ‘The unknown becomes known in the present moment’.

Series 2

Series 2 is released TODAY and includes 25 brand new lessons to add to what’s already available, including my contribution on ‘Creative Awakening and Conscious Writing’.  I hope you’ll check it out and let me know what you think in the comments below!

PS In fact, do please share your reactions below to any of the lessons and movies which are part of the World Summit. TY!

What’s new this month?

May 11, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

I love the month of May. In fact it’s one of my favourite months of the year!

The verdant greens sing their song against the backdrop of clear blue skies and the array of brightly coloured flowers uplift my heart and nourish my soul. Perhaps most of all, I love the palpable vibrancy of life as it pours through the forms of the natural world.

There are other kinds of vibrancy which all have their own gifts to offer us. When we feel a deep sense of excitement and possibility, we’re naturally open to positive change which often leads us to take the next steps in our process of creative self-discovery and authentic self-expression.

Real opportunities for such inspired and joyful transformation are to be cherished. And I’m delighted to share that one of them is currently available for you to enjoy right now!

Hay House World Summit 2016

My publisher has just launched a magnificent online event offering FREE access to 100 lessons from many of the leading lights in the world of healing, spirituality, prosperity, relationships and self-empowerment including Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Julia Cameron … and yours truly!

I’m honored to be amongst such an inspiring list of leaders in their field, and my interview on Creative Awakening and Conscious Writing will be released on Thursday 12 May and available until Thursday 26 May. I do hope you’ll check it out and let me know your reaction. Read more here.

Also This Month

As work continues with the unfolding transformation I’m currently in process with (more details coming soon!), I’m also harnessing the vibrant energy to bring to our annual Conscious Writing Retreat which is taking place from 10 to 13 June.

5 Tips for Boosting Your Creative Productivity

May 10, 2016

creativity_tileDo you sometimes feel that you’ve got too many ideas and wonder how you’ll ever get them all done? If so, you’re not alone.

Most creative people work on a number of projects simultaneously. And big projects come together from a whole host of smaller tasks.

Writers often have different types of writing (book, blog, fiction, non-fiction) as well as related tasks (research, reflecting, connecting with readers) all in the mix at once.

However creatively inspired you are, at times it can be challenging to keep all of your creative plates spinning and make progress at a pace that works for you and the projects you are working on.

So it’s important to apply your creative energy consciously so that your essential projects, which may be the most creatively challenging, don’t become sidelined because smaller or less demanding tasks are faster to complete.

Fortunately, experience reveals that certain techniques genuinely make a difference to creative productivity. Here are 5 strategies you can apply straight away that will shift your creative output onto new levels:

IACCW Member Event: How to Align Your Purpose with Prosperity as a Conscious Writer

April 28, 2016

Julia McCutchen interviews Rachel ElnaughRachelElnaugh2016
on 5th May

There’s nothing worse than pouring your heart and soul into creating a book (or indeed any other product) and not attracting readers or financial reward at the end of the process.

This often happens because the creative process takes place in a vacuum that does not include your reader!

In this session, entrepreneur and former Dragons’ Den star Rachel Elnaugh will help you step into the alignment that will dramatically increase your chances of gaining a strong readership and revenue streams from your creative journey, including simple ideas on:

  • How to de-risk the entire book writing and publishing process
  • Why magnetic marketing is a thousand times more powerful than ‘push’ marketing – and how to do it effectively
  • Ways to surround your writing process with complementary activity which will drive sales and readership
  • Utilising social media to the max – including pitfalls to avoid
  • Building your publicity and marketing into the heart of the process
  • Maximising revenue streams – especially passive ones!
  • How to take your content to the mass market (should you so desire)

Rachel Elnaugh is the award-winning entrepreneur who created the £multi-million turnover Red Letter Days experiences brand and who went on to star as a Dragon in the first two series of BBCTV’s Dragons’ Den.  Her book ‘Business Nightmares’ was published by Crimson in 2008 and generated her personal revenue streams totalling over £400,000.  Rachel has acted as a mentor to many metaphysical teachers, thought leaders and visionaries and is also co-creator of the marketing portal and business platform SourceTV.

What’s new this month?

April 7, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

As we leave behind the darkness of winter and head more deeply into the light of spring, I’m truly feeling the transition as the echo reverberates through the major shift I’m currently in process with.

Intensity and uncertainty are inherent parts of transformation as the alchemical fire dissolves all that no longer fits current and future requirements, and surrendering to ‘not knowing’ allows new patterns to emerge.

My guiding light has always been a dedication to Truth.

Intuition Leads the Way

My intuition leads the way as I sense the direction without knowing the details yet trust completely that taking one step at a time (sometimes in fast succession!) enables me to feel my way forwards to wherever I’m heading next.

Intuition is an immensely valuable skill to develop for all kinds of creative expression and right now I’m grateful for having sharpened the accuracy of mine!

When it comes to writing and authorship, without doubt intuition can be our most trusted ally. This month’s article explains more – see here.

So what’s your intuition nudging you to be aware of right now?

Live Events

If you feel drawn to discovering and deepening your connection to your true voice with a view to expressing what you’re here to share through words and actions, here are two live events that will support you to do so:

  • Conscious Writing One Day Workshop on SUNDAY 17 APRIL – read more here.
  • Conscious Writing Four Day Retreat 10 to 13 JUNE – last few single rooms! Read more here.

Looking Ahead

I’m looking forward to revealing more information related to my current unfolding dream soon.

In the meantime, this month’s IACCW member interview is on the hot topic of Visibility and Vulnerabilitywhich may resonate if you’ve ever paused to wonder if you truly have what it takes to ‘get your work out there’! See here.

I’m also delighted to recommend Season 5 of Aspire magazine publisher Linda Joy’s Inspired Living Giveaway which offers an abundance of free gifts for mastering the art of conscious and creative living. Read more in our Recommended section here.

Finally, next month I’ll be sharing the details of a major online event that I think you’ll really love and benefit from as a conscious and creative writer.

So keep an eye on your inbox for the May issue of the IACCW Journal and have a joyful few weeks till then.

Intuition – An Important Ally for Conscious Writers

April 5, 2016

prairie-679014_640Intuition can be your most powerful ally when it comes to writing your book and taking your message out to the marketplace successfully and with soul. Do you know how to access yours?

Swiss psychologist Carl Jung proposed that intuition is one of four ways human beings process the world alongside sensation, thinking and feeling. His pioneering work has contributed hugely to our understanding today.

An important gateway to conscious creativity, intuition functions beyond the mind and opens the way for intuitive writing. The hallmark of intuition is immediate and direct knowledge without the conscious use of reasoning. Rising above thought but using the mind as a vehicle, intuition is a distinct sense of Knowing.

A Strong Hunch

You will have experienced intuition already even though you may not have been consciously aware that it was guiding you.

Think of a time when you had a strong hunch, a gut feeling that you couldn’t quite explain but which just felt “right”.

You may have had an “aha” moment when you suddenly understood something which made complete sense. Or you could have experienced a gradual process which led you towards a conclusion and resulted in the complete knowledge that you were on the right track.


IACCW Member Event: Visibility and Vulnerability for Conscious Writers

March 31, 2016

Julia McCutchen interviews Beth Buelow Buelow_Headshot_150
on Thursday 7th April

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” – Ernest Hemingway

Doesn’t this perfectly sum up the writing process? We spill our souls in private, and we alternate between feeling exhilarated and terrified (and every feeling in between!). But the writing is relatively easy compared to what’s next: putting it out there. What was private becomes public, and whether that happens in stages or overnight, it can be vulnerable and exhausting. It’s an experience you can’t quite prepare yourself for… or can you?

In this interview, we discuss the writing process specifically as it relates to being seen and heard by people who both want to cheer you on and tear you down. You’ll learn how to:

  • Ease into visibility in a way that suits your personality (especially if you’re introverted)
  • Honor your Comfort Zone in service of stretching your Capacity Zone
  • Define “success” on your own terms
  • Recognize what you’re really afraid of when it comes to getting out there
  • Recover from the ultimate vulnerability hangover

Beth Buelow, PCC, serves as a guide to introvert entrepreneurs who want to amplify their strengths and build sustainable, energetically aligned businesses. She is a professional coach, author, and speaker, is based in the Pacific Northwest and serves introverts worldwide. Her podcast, “The Introvert Entrepreneur,” was named as one of the top 25 business podcasts for entrepreneurs by and was featured in the “Inspiring Women’s Voices” category on iTunes. She’s contributed to articles in The Wall Street Journal, The Telegraph, Success Magazine, Inc, Entrepreneur, and Psychology Today, among others. Beth is the author of “Insight: Reflections on the Gifts of Being an Introvert” (2012) and “The Introvert Entrepreneur: Amplify Your Strengths and Create Success on Your Own Terms” (Penguin Random House, Nov 2015).

Conscious & Creative Mentoring – last place, last chance

March 23, 2016

On this beautifully sunny spring day, I’m reaching out to you with this quick courtesy reminder that the application deadline for the new Mentoring Series is coming up tomorrow, Thursday 24 March – and there’s just one place remaining!

This year, my new offering for the focus of our work together is creative awakening which uses creativity as the basis of deep self-discovery and healing into wholeness.

This holistic approach opens the way for you to express yourself creatively and authentically through both business and personal projects from the level of your true self, and set yourself free to create what you’re truly here to create.

CW_Mentoring_2016_LORES_150Read more here

If your primary focus is writing (of any kind) and authorship, my on-going commitment to conscious writing as my core teaching for discovering and expressing your true voice will be the best choice for you.

Having said that, there is a natural overlap between conscious writing and creative awakening and they both come into the mentoring process overall in one way or another.

Choosing between them boils down to how much emphasis you want to place on writing and this is something we can discuss together to find the perfect fit for you.

CW_Mentoring_2014_LORES_150Read more here

The mentoring work I do is always deep, transformative and often described as ‘life changing’:

JennyEngstromBaron_150I first came to see Julia for a 2-hour Breakthrough Coaching session at a time when I was struggling to transition from academic writing to more creative work, and I’ve continued to work with her ever since.

During that time, Julia has been instrumental in helping me find my writer’s voice and discover what I am truly here to write.

Working with Julia has been transformative, and her unique approach to creativity and writing beats any creative writing course I’ve ever attended.

Not only is Julia a highly skilled mentor with expert knowledge of the world of professional writing and publishing; she’s also amazingly intuitive and has a natural talent for helping people connect with their creativity. 

I can safely say that working with Julia has transformed my writing as well as my life!

Jenny Engström Baron, blogger, writer and activist

question-mark-460864_640So ask yourself:
  • Am I as ready as I’ll ever be to create what I’m here to create, write what I’m here to write and live a life that reflects the fullness of my creative soul?
  • If not now, when?
How to Apply

Send an email to with Mentoring Series in the subject line, and include a one or two sentence summary of what…

  • You’re currently working on in terms of ideas and/or writing OR what you would like to develop and/or write;
  • Support and guidance you are looking for;
  • You would like to achieve by the end of the Mentoring Series.

We’ll then arrange a time for a quick chat to discuss the detail and decide whether this is the right form of guidance and support for you at this time. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Julia McCutchenTo your conscious & creative success!

    How to Craft Compelling Online Courses from Your Creative Content

    Mark Matousek

    How to Craft Compelling Online Courses from Your Creative ContentMost of us who write understand that earning an abundant living exclusively from writing books is the exception rather than the rule. The bulk of our income as authors is likely to come from the related activities we create to share our ideas, insights and stories. There are multiple possibilities for doing so such as speaking engagements, leading workshops and retreats, offering mentoring and more. One of the most popular options today, particularly for appealing to an international audience, is to develop online courses – taught live and through audio or video – to share the material from any body of work we’ve created, including books.
