Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!
A few months ago, I realized that the idea I had at the start of the year to run a Conscious Writing retreat in Bali during February 2015 wasn’t going to happen this time around.
It turned out that the retreat centre I had chosen didn’t have any spaces and I didn’t want to book somewhere I hadn’t visited personally.
It felt fine rather than disappointing as I am totally in trust with what is and I intended to return for a personal visit anyway.
However, not long afterwards, the feeling that I wouldn’t be going to Bali at all in 2015 surfaced. I didn’t know why, but accepted the intuition and remained open to how events would unfold.
Over the last three months, the true reasons for me remaining here in the UK have been revealed. Firstly, there is an unexpected personal situation that I outlined in last month’s IACCW Journal.
Hay House to Publish Conscious Writing
Secondly, I am now able to share that I find myself in the position of having to complete the writing for my book by the middle of February as I have just signed a contract with Hay House!
Assuming I can finish the manuscript on time (which admittedly feels like a stretch) the book is due out in September 2015, and my presence will be required to see the book through to publication – and beyond.
We often aren’t aware of the “big picture” when we are concentrating on the details of what we think we want to do – as writers and in life.
Yet, when we pay attention to our intuition and remain open, eventually we are able to see with new eyes and make conscious choices about appropriate action.
So pause for a moment and think about a situation that may not be working out exactly as you had planned.
In what ways can you step back to gain a fresh perspective and apply that view to how you’re thinking and feeling?
Have a wonderfully Conscious & Creative month!
