What’s new this month?

January 10, 2019

Hi Conscious Writers!

There may be a hard frost outside but the sky is clear blue and the winter sun is lighting up the landscape and my inspiration which feels deeply nourishing.

As I explained in my New Year’s message last week, 2019 started with a bang for me in the literal sense of a car crash and I’m still dealing with the impact of that at every level.

However, this has been yet another opportunity to interpret the message of the moment as a reminder to review my highest priorities and ensure that I’m following through on what feels truly important.

Conscious Writing Quantum Leap

One of my highest priorities genuinely is to write, live and lead consciously, creatively, authentically and joyfully, and to guide and support others to do the same.

So it’s heartwarming that my latest offering, the Conscious Writing Quantum Leap 3 month individual coaching package, has already been so well received.

There are still a few places left if you feel drawn to harness the energy of the New Year and take the leap with your creative ideas and personal or professional writing project(s). Read more here.

On Being a Writer + Your Creative Vision

This month’s Free Member Interview is with bestselling author and all round delightful guy Robert Holden who shares his insight and experience on writing as a path of enquiry. Read more here.

And if you’re looking for clarity on what your creative priorities truly are for 2019, this month’s feature article will guide you step-by-step through the process of finding out. Read more here.

Enjoy!

5 Steps to Craft Your Creative Vision for 2019

I know that January isn’t celebrated as the start of the New Year by everyone but for me it’s one opportunity among many to harness the potential of new beginnings.

So I immerse myself in that inspiring alpha energy and ride the wave of creative possibilities and fresh perspectives.

The turn of the calendar year always feels like a good time to do an end of year review and reflect on all that has happened over the previous 12 months.

In the space that process creates, there’s room for me to make conscious choices about what’s most important for the next phase of my life and work.

Claim Your Right to Create

Along the way I’ve realized that this approach requires me to claim my right to create and express myself authentically in the world rather than wait for some mythical permission to arrive from elsewhere.

When I do so, the positive knock-on effect is that I’m then able to show up more joyfully for all of my commitments.

As a result, it turns out that everyone benefits from me making it a priority to create what I’m here to create in all areas of my life!

IACCW Member Interview: On Being a Writer – A Path of Enquiry

January 3, 2019

Julia McCutchen interviews Robert Holden

True creativity has been described as a living enquiry and the creative act of writing is replete with uncertainty. This can deter all but the most committed creative souls from facing the blank page with courage and fortitude.

Yet, when we approach writing as a path of enquiry, we learn to ‘live the questions’ as Rainer Maria Rilke famously advised in his seminal work Letters to a Young Poet. In doing so, the answers gradually present themselves.

With multiple bestselling books to his name, Robert Holden explores writing as a meditative path of enquiry and discusses:

  • The purpose of writing – what inspires you to write?
  • Writing as a spiritual practice – who is doing the writing?
  • Your relationship with the blank page, and how to make friends with it.
  • Not feeling ready to write, and other common blocks to writing.
  • Your dialogue with your inner critic – how to write and be free.
  • Recognizing your authentic voice, and daring to be more authentic.

Robert Holden is a bestselling author whose work on psychology and spirituality has been featured on Oprah, Good Morning America, a PBS special Shift Happens! and in two major BBC-TV documentaries. Robert writes a weekly newsletter for his website and hosts a weekly show on Hay House Radio called Shift Happens!  See www.robertholden.org

What’s new this month?

December 13, 2018

Hi Conscious Writers!

On this cold December day, I’m inspired to share with you that the recent Conscious Writing Retreat Reunion was memorably warm, deep and enriching for us all!

I’ve not lead a winter retreat before as the heat of summer has always beckoned.

Yet our collective experience of living and writing consciously and creatively proved to be a highlight of the season, and was described by participants as “a most wonderful, special, powerful and beautiful experience.”

Conscious Writing Quantum Leap

Since returning, I’ve been navigating the final choppy waters of the Mercury retrograde phase that I wrote about last month.

Thankfully it’s now direct again, so I’ve picked up the threads of moving forwards with new possibilities and I’m delighted to share a brand new project called Conscious Writing Quantum Leap.

Drawing on the alpha energy of the New Year, this three month individual coaching package will guide you to transform your creative experience and take a quantum leap forwards with your personal or professional writing project(s).

Starting in January, this exclusive opportunity is an expansion of my regular coaching and mentoring options for less than half the price! Read more here.

Writing for Healing and Creative Consistency

If you’re drawn to use writing as a healing tool for releasing what no longer serves you, you’ll enjoy this month’s IACCW Member interview with Catherine Ann Jones called Heal Yourself with Writing.

If you’re struggling to write consistently despite having the best intentions to do so, last week I celebrated the 2nd anniversary of the Conscious Writing for Creative Living blog by writing about one of my key learnings.

It’s called 7 Reasons to Be Creatively Consistent, and my intention is to inspire you to show up regularly and experience the cumulative rewards for yourself.

Finally, thank you for continuing to share this conscious and creative adventure with me, and I wish you truly wonderful Solstice and Yule time celebrations ahead.

With love

7 Reasons to Be Creatively Consistent

December 12, 2018

Two years ago today I published my first “Conscious Writing for Creative Living” blog.

Now, with over 100 posts written and in recognition of a notable milestone reached, I’m inspired to share another aspect of what I’ve learnt along the way – the value of consistency.

Showing up regularly has taught me a great deal about myself, the authenticity of my voice and the impact of my message as I’ve engaged with readers both on and off the blog.

Stretch, Challenge and Reward

Writing weekly blogs has certainly stretched and challenged me at every level.

Ultimately, however, it is deeply rewarding as a way of following through on my core purpose to write, live and lead as consciously, creatively and authentically as I can; and to guide others to be and do the same.

Consistency is one of the defining factors between failure and success – however you define what those terms mean for you.

So here are 7 reasons that I hope will inspire you to be creatively consistent in order to experience the cumulative rewards yourself.

What’s new this month?

November 15, 2018

Hi Conscious Writers

In a few days time Mercury will begin a retrograde period (17 Nov to 6 Dec) which typically means that communications, technology and travel (amongst other things) may be disrupted.

There’s a great deal more to this recurring phase than is relevant to share here; however, if you want to learn more, searching for “Mercury retrograde” brings up over 6.5 million results!

In short, for a week or so before, during and after these times, it’s probably best to avoid launching anything new, making important decisions or signing a significant contract, especially if it’s related to communications.

Align with the Energy

However, you can align yourself with the energy of Mercury retrograde in a positive way and embrace it as a time to slow down, make genuinely conscious choices, and review what’s truly important for you.

I’m mentioning all of this because last week we experienced a number of issues relating to technology and communications which had an impact on all kinds of priorities including delaying the IACCW journal newsletter.

Fortunately we track the periods of Mercury retrograde so we were aware of the “big picture” influencing our situation which enabled us to take it in our stride and calmly (most of the time!) work towards resolution.

Focus on the Opportunities

Hopefully that will be it for our challenges this time around.

However, we’ll remain vigilant going forwards and from the state of being grounded in the present moment, focus on releasing all that belongs to yesterday and reflecting on new possibilities for tomorrow.

If you feel that releasing limiting beliefs around your writing might be beneficial, this month’s interview will guide you to do so using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and the feature article will support you through writing an Unsent Letter.

Have a wonderfully conscious and creative month!

5 Reasons to Write a Letter You Don’t Send

November 13, 2018

Free writing in a journal has played a significant role on and off for most of my life so I know just how beneficial it is for processing thoughts and feelings, clearing internal space, and more.

My personal experience led me to include Conscious Journaling in my professional work as one of the foundational practices of Conscious Writing.

Yet it wasn’t until relatively recently that I discovered a magnificent array of journal techniques to suit all types of people in all sorts of situations.

Journal Therapy

Kathleen (Kay) Adams is a psychotherapist who specializes in “helping people use personal writing – journals, diaries, poetry, memoirs, and stories – as a pathway to deeper self-understanding.”(*)

She calls this “journal therapy” which she defines as “the purposeful and intentional use of life-based writing to further [desired] outcomes.”(*) It’s an approach she’s been using professionally since 1985.

In 1998, Adams combined a continuum of journal therapy techniques that she’d been using successfully with her patients into one model she called the Journal Ladder.

IACCW Member Event: Transform Your Beliefs as a Conscious Writer using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

November 1, 2018

Julia McCutchen interviews Kate Marillat

Are your beliefs about success, failure or exposure keeping you from the page? Do you believe your work is ‘good enough?’ Is writing ‘hard’ work or do you believe it can be easy?

Using the widely accepted and scientifically proven energy psychology modality, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping) it is possible to dissolve any negative emotions and trace them back to when this reaction and belief was first imprinted.

In this interview, Kate Marillat will take you on an interactive journey to discover how your beliefs are shaping your relationship with writing, and more importantly, discover how you can transform them using EFT.

You will learn:

  • Why your beliefs are so important & how you formed them from past experiences
  • How the emotional impact of your beliefs could be hindering your writing success
  • Your emotional reaction to your writing identity
  • How EFT can help you regain control of your emotional reactions and be as creativity productive as possible.
  • How to use basic EFT; Kate will guide you through an interactive EFT sequence so you can experience this life-changing technique first hand and use it for times of creative overwhelm, writer’s block and even manifesting literary success.

Kate Marillat is an author, coach, EFT trainer, and all round motivator. Her first non-fiction book Transform Your Beliefs, Transform Your Life EFT Tapping using Matrix Reimprinting was published by Hay House.  She combines her expert knowledge of EFT and creativity to ease people into a state of flow and attract the success they deserve.
