What’s new this month?

May 31, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

I hope that all’s well with you and that you’re successfully navigating whatever transitions are taking place within you and in your life right now.

I recently had an “aha” moment of realization that all the people I work with are either on the brink or in the middle of some kind of transition. These relate to their process of self-discovery, creative unfolding, writing aspirations, and more.

Identifying this immediately made complete sense as it’s a reflection of my own journey following a life changing accident 17 years ago which triggered a series of major transitions for me on the path of deep transformation.

Internal Focus + External Guidance

When we’re in transition, although the primary focus is internal, the right kind of external guidance that is aligned with Truth opens up a whole new space for us to find our way forwards with a fresh perspective.

Quantum leaps become possible and we gradually discover a new way of being that is increasingly congruent with our true nature. Finding our true calling as writers and in life naturally arises from this process.

Tough those these transitions often are, it’s an amazingly creative approach to life that is filled with delightful surprises, and ultimately a true sense of freedom and fulfillment!

Two Opportunities

The reason I’m sharing this with you today (and also why our June newsletter is being published a day early) is that there are two opportunities for external guidance currently available but only for a short time. So I’m inspired to let you know about them in case they resonate with you at this time:

  • Guidance from 100 bestselling authors, teachers and international experts on all aspects of healing, spirituality, prosperity, relationships and self-empowerment including Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Julia Cameron (and yours truly!) – Hay House World Summit access deadline tomorrow, WEDNESDAY 1 JUNE. Read more here.
  • Four days away from everyday commitments to focus on deepening your connection to your creative soul, finding your true voice and translating your “right work” into the words of your blog, book, business communications and more at the 2016 Conscious Writing Retreat – booking deadline for the last place is this FRIDAY 3 JUNE. Read more here.

Wherever you are on your journey of transformation through conscious writing and creative living, may your inner unfolding attract the right kind of external guidance to support each and every step you take!

Till next month…

3 Major Benefits of Immersion Time for Conscious Writers

hourglass-1289782_640Writing a book is a huge commitment of time and energy, especially when we approach it with the intention of writing deeply with full awareness as Conscious Writing invites us to do.

We can only truly appreciate what is involved when we dedicate ourselves to taking action rather than simply mulling it over as a future possibility.

And if we want to avoid our book taking forever to complete, we need to create a regular rhythm that includes a mix of short to medium bursts of daily writing alongside longer stretches of what I call “immersion time”.

This is when we schedule time out from other commitments to dive deeply into our topic and our writing with as few distractions as possible.

Immersion time can be anything from half a day to one, two, three or more days on retreat. Once we transition fully into creative writing mode, most of us would happily continue with it full time!

My own experience of immersion time when I was writing my latest book combined with my work with people at all stages of the creative process, proves the case that choosing to prioritize our writing is a priceless gift. Here’s why …

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!

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!

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.

    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.
