What’s new this month?

September 10, 2014

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

I’m just surfacing from a few days of retreat from the everyday world which is a priority I recommend to all conscious creatives.

This time I’ve immersed myself deeply in writing and have completed the next chapter of my book – happy days :-) In fact there are a number of “happenings” around the book at the moment which I’ll look forward to sharing with you soon.

In the meantime, the year is flying by and September always feels like a wonderful time to turn over a new leaf and raise the bar on our chosen priorities (perhaps this is the “back to school” groove still at play?)

Whatever the trigger, there have been a number of conversations had with writers lately who are feeling the “if not now, when?” dynamic in relation to their book projects.

This leads me to our current offering of Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats which is already making a difference to the projects and the overall perspective of participants.

We now have just 2 places left for anyone who would like to explore what happens when a commitment to write is consciously & creatively guided forwards on a one-to-one basis. Read more here.

If you’re feeling in need of a more general boost to your conscious and creative impulses and are going to be in London at the start of October, this may be of interest.

We have once again arranged with Hay House UK to offer a special 10% discount for all IACCW Members who would like to attend their forthcoming I Can Do It! Event. Read more here.

Finally, if you’d like to know more about connecting with your muse, you’ll enjoy reading this month’s article called Meet Your Muse: Source of Wisdom and Creativity by award-winning book coach and IACCW speaker Lisa Tener.

Whatever choices you make about your creative writing this month, make sure they are conscious ones!

Enjoy!

Meet Your Muse: Source of Wisdom and Creativity

September 8, 2014

beachrockslisa200I am delighted to introduce this guest article by award-winning book coach Lisa Tener. Enjoy!

The term “muse” comes from the ancient Greeks and refers to the goddesses who inspire the creation of literature and the arts. You can view the muse as a wise inner teacher: Imagine a part of you that has solutions to your every creative challenge. It has the power to shift negative perceptions that get in the way of your creative flow. And it can help you access inspiration for your writing at any time.

Surrounded by a pile of notes and having tried to structure her first chapter several different ways, Vicky felt confused and overwhelmed. To get unstuck, she asked her muse for clarity. She imagined her muse as “much larger and wiser than me” and trusted it to guide her. Then she fell asleep. When she woke up and sat at her desk to write the chapter, the writing flowed and the organization worked well.

IACCW Member Event: Quantum Creativity for Conscious Writers

September 4, 2014

AmitGoswami(i)_150Julia McCutchen interviews Dr Amit Goswami
on THURSDAY 11 SEPTEMBER

Cultivating creativity is essential for writers of all kinds. According to quantum physics, reality occurs on two levels: possibility and actuality. Quantum physicist Dr. Amit Goswami uses this same duality to explore what he calls “quantum thinking” which focuses on the conscious mind of actuality and the unconscious mind of possibility.
In this interview, we will discuss the recent advances in our understanding of quantum physics and consciousness to elucidate how one can make creative choices that transform, and Dr Goswami will explain:
  • What quantum physics teaches us about the fundamental reality of being;
  • The stages of the creative process including inner and outer creativity;
  • How to overcome the barriers to creative choice;
  • The essence of quantum creativity and how to apply it as Conscious Writers;
  • How we align ourselves with the evolutionary movement of consciousness.
Amit Goswami, Ph.D. was a full professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Oregon where he served from 1968 through 1997. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness,” an idea he explicated in his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe where he also solved the quantum measurement problem elucidating the famous observer effect. Goswami has written several popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness which have been translated into sixteen languages. He was featured in the film “What the Bleep Do We Know?” as well as the award winning documentary on his life and work, “The Quantum Activist.” For more information see www.amitgoswami.org.

August Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

August 28, 2014

fractal-403463_250Creativity as a Way of Life

“Unless we are creators we are not fully alive. What do I mean by creators? Not only artists, whose acts of creation are the obvious ones of working with paint or clay or words.

Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living. Creativity is not limited to the arts, or having some kind of important career.”

Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water

Conscious Writers embrace Conscious Creativity as a way of life, and simultaneously discover a deeper, richer, inner creative well than ever before.

To your conscious & creative success!

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

As nature continues to shower us with an abundance of summer offerings (our home grown runner beans are especially gorgeous at the moment!) creative energy seems to be flowing abundantly for Conscious & Creative Writers as well.

Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats

First of all, having mentioned to a few people that I would be offering Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats over the next few months, two places out of the total of five were picked up straight away.

I love seeing writers in the flow of awareness and having the courage to make intuitive choices relating to opportunities that resonate with “just what is needed right now”.

These one, two or three day retreats are a chance for quality time away from your regular commitments to develop your ideas and make progress with your writing alongside the guidance and support of working with me one-to-one. Read more here.

Four Questions for Conscious Writers to Answer & Share

August 11, 2014

InvitationLast week, two invitations arrived on the same day for me to join Blog Tours which are connecting authors with similar interests and expanding the reach for the greater good of all concerned.

I love the principle of creative collaboration and deeply appreciate the resonance of writers sharing their work and supporting each other – so I’m in!

I decided to share my responses here to the four questions asked for the first Blog Tour of authors who write about intuitive understanding to lift the veil on my current writing and to spread the word about the idea.

My invitation for you is to pick up the Blog Tour thread and take it forwards so as many writers as possible can participate and benefit from the experience.

Here’s how it works. Each writer:

  • Is invited by someone to participate, introduces that person at the start of the post and includes a link to their blog. This invitation from me to you is all you need to get started.
  • Answers four questions about their writing as the main body of the post.
  • Invites another writer to continue the process and introduces them at the end of the post along with a link to their blog.
  • Posts what they have written to their blog and shares it with their audience via social media and more.
  • Asks the next writer to post their answers the following week on an agreed day and to continue the process.
Here we go …

IACCW Member Event: How Conscious Writers Can Gain Intuitive Insights & Ideas Immediately

July 31, 2014

Julia McCutchen interviews Becky WalshBeckyWalsh150 On THURSDAY  7 AUGUST

There are multiple ways we know what we know. Your own intuition is a remarkable way to access information you don’t consciously know you know with your mind. Don’t you just love those moments when you read something and think ‘wow, that’s genius… wait! I wrote that!’ If you want more of those moments, join us to learn how to:

  • Create liminal space for your intuition and the Muse to create together;
  • Find your ‘born to write’ book idea with intuition;
  • Appreciate the difference between gut and heart intuition, and how to use heart intuition to get over the voice of the inner critic;
  • Jump two years ahead, to what the world will need at the point you publish;
  • Use your somatic intuition to hear what voice you are writing in.

Becky Walsh is the author of You DO Know – Learning to act on intuition instantly (Hay House), and three more published books and five e-books. She is a sought after speaker internationally, and has appeared at the world renowned Hay House seminar ‘I can do it’.  She has a wealth of media experience having hosted her own award winning show on LBC 97.3 radio in London and a show on Hay House Radio which enjoys a peak audience of two million listeners worldwide. Becky also delivers comment and analysis in the national and trade press, as well as being a blogger for the Huffington Post. For more information, see www.beckywalsh.com

July Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

July 22, 2014

Vintage inscription made by old typewriterFreedom to Write

“There is freedom in being a writer and writing. It is fulfilling your function.

I used to think freedom meant doing whatever you want. It means knowing who you are, what you are supposed to be doing on this earth, and then simply doing it.”

Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones

Conscious Writers prioritise knowing their true nature, and then take awakened action – on the page and in the world – without procrastination.

To your conscious & creative success!
