Completion Not Perfection

May 4, 2018

As a successful coach with a thriving practice, Sarah loved her work and enjoyed supporting her clients to identify and pursue their true priorities in life.

However, she was constantly over-delivering, felt depleted as a result, and harboured a secret sense of shame.

She’d always wanted to write and share the lessons she’d learned from many years of spiritual, personal and professional growth.

Yet despite several attempts to apply her wide-ranging skills to the written word, she kept getting stuck and just couldn’t find her flow.

Despite her professional success, she felt like she was failing.

The Creative Power of Deadlines

April 5, 2018

Love them or hate them, deadlines are an integral part of living a creative life that includes sharing your creations with others.

Some people relish the pressure and feel they come alive and do their best work in the 11th hour.

Others experience such a strong degree of contraction from the stress that their inspiration shuts down and they end up driving themselves forcefully towards completion, often feeling depleted and dissatisfied with the end result.

A High Priority

My relationship with deadlines is somewhere between these two extremes.

During my publishing career, I worked to cut-off dates at every stage of the process from the author delivering the manuscript to the print date when no further changes could be made.

Meeting deadlines was a high priority and carried all the way through to making sure that finished copies were delivered to the right place at the right time when authors were engaged in promotional activities like book signings.

Honour the Commitment

Having crossed the threshold to become an author myself and forged my own path over the last 20 years creating courses, classes, products and retreats, I certainly have more say in the time frames I’m working to now.

However, there’s always a requirement to decide when something is going to happen and then follow through to make that a reality to honour the commitment – to myself and to others.

5 Ways to Lean In to Creative Uncertainty

March 8, 2018

I’ve been developing my ideas for the new project I’ve recently started working on and have been called once more to face an array of unknowns.

I know this space of creative uncertainty with a familiarity that comes from my commitment to living consciously with creativity at the core of who I am and what I do.

The Depths of Discomfort

However that doesn’t mean I’m able to avoid the depths of discomfort relating to the “not knowing” that’s an integral part of the creative process.

I love the fact that my conscious approach leads me over the edge of what I “know” to discover fresh insights and ideas.

Yet it’s genuinely tough to translate the essence I so often realize intuitively into forms which retain the integrity of the message and can be readily communicated, shared and enjoyed by others.

The Power of Ritual

February 8, 2018

The 1 February was the festival of Imbolc, one of the cornerstones of the Celtic Calendar.

Traditionally, as the store of winter provisions started to run out, Imbolc was a time for performing rituals to harness divine energy and ensure the availability of food to see everyone through till the autumn harvest.

Fires would be lit to celebrate the steadily increasing strength of the sun as well as the powers of Brigid, the Goddess of fire, healing and fertility.

Conscious Actions Performed Mindfully

One of the aspects I love about such time-honoured festivals relates to the power of ritual and the immensely positive impact of conscious actions performed mindfully.

Rituals set things apart from the everyday and have the potential to transform your experience from the mundane to the sacred.

Shift Your State of Consciou sness

Whether they’re short and simple or lengthy and elaborate, rituals bring you into the present moment and trigger a shift in your state of consciousness.

Mindfully focusing your energy on a selected intention benefits you in a multitude of ways including boosts to your creativity, commitment and confidence.

Calling Forth the Real Creative You

January 11, 2018

I love drawing on the alpha energy of the New Year to reflect on what really resonates for me in the new Now!

Once I’ve recharged and released what feels “done” from all that has been, I take myself through a process I’ve developed to call forth my naturally creative true self.

With that in place, I’m free to explore a multitude of possibilities and make conscious choices about what priorities I feel drawn to focus on next in all areas of my life.

Clarity, Focus and Flexibility

This leads me to a point of clarity in relation to the preliminary intentions I set for both personal and professional projects.

These could be developing an area of the garden, for example, or creating new content to share with you through courses, classes, mentoring and retreats.

It feels natural for me to start with a focused yet flexible “big picture” and then allow the details to arise along the way.

Who You Become

December 7, 2017

In a recent mentoring session with a new client I’ll call Sarah, I found myself explaining a perspective that’s a core principle of my conscious and creative approach to living and writing.

Who you become is just as important as what you create, write, say and do in the world.

In fact it’s essential because who you are and the state of consciousness you’re in doesn’t just determine the quality of your self-expression, it directly impacts your whole experience of life.

Sabotage

Sarah understood this principle intellectually but was struggling to apply it.

She was so focused on being of service to the people she felt inspired to help that she was driving herself hard to make it all happen “yesterday” and causing herself a great deal of stress in the process.

The irony was that the more she pushed to achieve the results she was striving for, the slower her progress and the more frustration she felt.

Who she was becoming as a result of her approach was not only detrimental to her health but also sabotaging the whole project!

No Rules Writing

November 16, 2017

I’ve always had an intrinsic respect for Divine Order and Natural Law alongside an equally innate disrespect for some of the man-made rules that don’t seem to make any sense to me.

It’s hardly surprising that this was the cause of quite a few issues during my growing up years!

I simply didn’t respond to the “… because I say so” reason that school teachers often gave when I genuinely wanted to know “why?” I should do something in a certain way.

A Few Exceptions

With experience I’ve learnt to follow Divine Order as my highest authority and respect the importance of regulations to guide the different facets of everyday life.

Over the years I’ve successfully applied this more mature relationship with convention and found my peace with rules and abiding by them.

Yet for me there will always be a few exceptions, especially when it comes to creative expression and specifically to writing.

“No” as a Conscious and Creative Choice

October 5, 2017

Returning to regular life after summer holidays and silent retreats can feel like a real shock to the system.

The spacious freedom gives way to a range of commitments that usually require an immediate shift from being to doing and it doesn’t take long for personal priorities to slide into oblivion.

It’s a transition I’ve learnt to navigate by drawing on the conscious and creative choice to say “no”!

Conscious Choices

This means that the vast majority of the commitments in my schedule now are ones that I’ve consciously chosen and am really happy to follow through on.

I ease into picking up the full load over the first few days and soon find myself in a new rhythm which increasingly includes the spacious energy I’ve enjoyed from my time out as the integration of being and doing.

But it hasn’t always been this way and I know the feeli ng of overwhelm from having too much going on all too well.

And it’s an on-going practice for me to remain vigilant about not initiating too many new projects simultaneously.

Clear Boundaries

Learning to say “no” consciously is not something I’ve ever been taught to do (wouldn’t it be wonderful if the education system actually included a few core life skills!).

Conscious Writing Core Practice # 2: Spend Time in Nature

September 9, 2017

One of the most significant aspects of my recent silent retreat was spending time in nature and immersing myself in the mystery and magic of the natural world.

It is part of my everyday life; yet having an extended period of time to enjoy all that nature has to offer always feels like such a gift.

I’ve had many awe-inspiring experiences in nature over the years and still discover new levels of awareness, alignment and connection as a result.

Tropical Shock

Many years ago, my first visit to a tropical jungle was initially quite a shock to my system.

We’d travelled for what felt like forever on Venezuelan roads riddled with gaping holes and ended up on an undulating dirt track cut right through the forest.

Finally we came to the point where the track simply ran out – the proverbial end of the road!

As we walked the final stretch to the remote retreat centre, all of my senses were on supreme alert.

The Value of Space in the Creative Cycle

August 15, 2017

Right now I’m consciously choosing to take a creative pause and immerse myself in the space of unlimited potential.

Of course I’m continuing to honour my regular writing and client commitments (which I love!) but I’m holding fire on planning any major new projects.

Instead, I’m wrapping up the final full stops on the visible and invisible actions required for everything so far, and stepping into the space of “not knowing” to see what comes to greet me.

The Feminine Approach

I always find that when I create internal and external space with a clear intention to remain open to whatever arises new possibilities soon start to appear on the horizon.

Having released my conditioning to “make everything happen”, I’ve shifted into living the reality of allowing, receiving and remaining alert for the next golden thread(s) I feel inspired to follow to be revealed.

This feminine approach enables new ideas and opportunities to take the shape they need to take and gradually come into full view without being pushed or driven or made to fit some intellectual concept of what they “should” be.

The Creative Cycle

Space is one of the most overlooked aspects of the creative cycle.

Yet in the many years of my personal and professional experience I’ve discovered that it’s essential for original insights and authentic ideas to emerge from the realms beyond the filters of the ordinary conditioned mind.
