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.

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

Well, I’m back at my desk after a wonderful break that was a mix of recharging, clearing space and creative visioning – just what I needed, and ideal inspiration for this month’s article.

Over the last few months I’ve had a strong feeling that I’m at the end of an era and the start of a whole new one. This is a fairly regular occurrence for me as my journey of creative awakening includes on-going transformation at ever deeper levels.

Endings and Beginnings

However, some of these endings and new beginnings are more significant than others. This one has been massive in relation to my work; I found myself shredding and burning papers going back 10 years to when I first started online!

It’s felt hugely cleansing and I’m filled with gratitude for the sense of completion it included. I’ve remained fully respectful of all that has been which brought me to my current space of being yet simultaneously totally ready to let it all go and relish the space it’s created for whatever lies ahead.

I’m inspired to write more about this in the coming months. In the meantime, I smiled when I read recently that today is a solar eclipse and tomorrow is a new moon – both of which relate to endings and beginnings! Perhaps you’re feeling it too?

Welcoming the ‘New’

Of course the new energy is already arriving, and last month I explained how ‘creative awakening’ is arising to take its rightful place alongside conscious writing as my core teaching.

In fact, the very first Creative Awakening one day workshop is taking place in just 10 days time on Saturday 19 March. I’ve loved preparing this new content and am so looking forward to guiding people through the process. Read more here.

Mentoring

I’m also delighted to be offering creative awakening as well as conscious writing as options for the new six month mentoring series starting in April.

There’s been a great response so far and we have just two places remaining. The application deadline is 24 March. Read more here.

Retreat

Naturally I’m still passionate about conscious writing too and it’s the primary focus of our retreat which is taking place from 10th to 13th June. The Early Bird tickets have sold out which means that the Tier One tickets are now on sale! Read more here.

If you’ve yet to have a live experience of conscious writing, I’m also leading a one day workshop that will give you a real taste of its potential next month. More details here.

Wherever you are in your current cycle of conscious and creative living, I wish you deep joy and abundant success, whatever that means for you.

Till next month…

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

I love the magic and mystery of the creative process; how the invisible realms give rise to a multitude of visible forms – words, pictures, sounds and more.’

These are the first words of my latest article which tells the story of the way in which creative awakening has become my latest creative offering as an example of how you can follow the lead of your creative unfolding.

In a few short months creative awakening – where the journey of self-discovery meets authentic self-expression in all areas of life – has turned into:

  • several articles
  • a one day workshop in March
  • an option for the six month Mentoring Series starting in April
  • and a major interview to be broadcast in May!

I’m especially delighted to be offering creative awakening as an option for the Mentoring Series alongside my on-going commitment to conscious writing as my core teaching. Read more here.

I hope you’ll consider this broader focus as an opportunity for guidance on your journey of self-discovery and authentic self-expression, and I’d love to know your reaction to the idea generally (send me an email here).

In the meantime…

… the Conscious Writing Scholarship will be offered later in the year (July application: September start) which of course comes after our annual Retreat (10-13 June) which is almost sold out at the Early Bird price!

I’m also delighted to share that my good friend Publisher Linda Joy just released the 10th Anniversary Issue of Aspire Magazine and my article on Creativity: A Path to Freedom and Fulfilment in Your Business and Your Life is included! See here.

You might also like to check out my latest radio interview for the delightful Marianne Pestana and a couple of one day workshops in the Dates for Your Diary section, so there’s plenty on offer to support you with your creative unfolding during 2016.

Personal Visioning + Creative Retreat

Next week I’m off for some mid-winter recharging and after that I’m taking some additional time out for a personal visioning and creative retreat to develop my new ideas in more detail!

So I’ll look forward to catching up with you again early March, and while I’m away from my desk, my wonderful assistant Justine will be on hand to schedule time for us to have a quick chat about the mentoring options if that offering appeals to you at this time.

To your conscious & creative success!

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

I hope that you had a fabulous festive season and are looking forward to all that 2016 has in store for you.

Not everyone resonates with the fresh energy of the New Year on 1 January.

And I fully respect that there are many options for celebrating the turn of the year such as 1 November which is Samhain in the Celtic calendar.

My choice is to pay attention and celebrate them all in some way as the end of one phase and the start of the next.

Living a conscious and creative life involves multiple completions and commencements which provide us with excellent opportunities for releasing the old and welcoming the new. This is the energy which has inspired my latest article.

The Next Chapter of Your Life

I’d love to encourage you to make the time and space to make conscious choices about what you want to include in the next chapter of your life.

Hopefully you’ll be inspired to dive ever more deeply into your growth and development as a Conscious Writer, and as ever, we have a couple of offerings to support you to create the reality you envision for yourself:

1. Conscious Writing Retreat: FRI 10 to MON 13 JUNE

I’m delighted to share that booking is now OPEN for this year’s retreat!

There are just a few Early Bird tickets left (people on the ‘Advance Notification’ list snapped up the first few!) so if you think you might like to go for our fabulous retreat experience this year, read more and book your place here.

2. Conscious Writing Scholarship

Applications for our 4th annual scholarship which offers FREE and discounted places for the six month Mentoring Series will open during February. More details in next month’s IACCW Journal.

To your conscious & creative success!

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

As we draw towards the end of what has been a ‘full on’ year, I invite you to reflect on what you’re ready to release in order to create space for new opportunities in 2016?

In my case, I’ve let go of the intensity required to launch my new book (yang, active, masculine energy) and have immersed myself in the complementary yin, receptive, feminine energy to re-balance the whole.

The internal spaciousness has already opened up a number of new possibilities including interest in creative awakening which is the conscious approach to creativity as a way of being that Conscious Writing is one expression of.

In fact, this month’s article describes my shift from seeing creativity as an ‘optional extra’ to realizing that it is a fundamental requirement for my happiness, health and well-being as a crucial step in my own creative awakening.

Conscious Writing Circles and 2016 Retreat

I’m also embracing increased levels of collaboration with like-minded others which beautifully echoes the recommendations I’ve created for everyone who feels a resonance with Conscious Writing to share the adventure through Conscious Writing Circles. Read more here.

If connecting with like-minded Conscious Writers resonates with you, you might also be interested to know that we’ll be opening the doors to the Early Bird tickets for the 2016 Conscious Writing Retreat in the New Year.

We already have quite a few people on the Advance Notification list so if you’d like to take advantage of the limited number of discounted tickets, add your name by clicking here.

Recommended

Finally, one of the connections I’ve appreciated recently has been with the wonderful team at Conscious Lifestyle magazine.

The article I wrote for their current issue is called Finding Your True Self: 5 Practices for Discovering Your Unique Voice through Creative Expression which you can read here.

The quality of the magazine is top notch and they are looking for Conscious Writers as contributors for future issues so if you’re interested to read the magazine and submit an article to them, learn more from the ‘Recommended’ section of this month’s newsletter here.

It just remains for me to thank you once more for sharing this conscious & creative journey with me and to wish you an abundance of joy over the coming holiday season.

To your conscious & creative success!

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

Two months on from the publication of my new book Conscious Writing, I’m surfacing from what has been an extremely intense experience!

So much so, that I’ve been prompted to write an article about it called A Conscious Approach to the Alchemy of Authorship see here.

The reality of what it takes to write and publish a book successfully includes a massive investment of time and energy over a long period of time (about 2 1/2 years for me), not to mention the financial implications.

Following an Inner Impulse

Yet the commitment to follow the inner impulse to write what we’re here to write leads to the creation of a body of work that is in service to the core message and stories we feel called to share.

As a result, my highest priority now is to share this core teaching which has been described as ‘a pioneering movement’ for everyone who wants to make a positive difference in the world through discovering and expressing their true voice.

So, here’s a summary of the ways I’ve created so far to do just that and even more importantly, to support you to follow your inner impulse and create what you’re here to create:

    • FREE Resources: videos, audios, articles and more – click here
    • The Book, Journal and Audio CD: enjoy a 10% discount off the list price of the book and a ‘thank you’ gift when you purchase plus a request to post a review if you like what you read – click here
    • LIVE Events:  your chance to experience the Conscious Writing process with my personal guidance on a one day workshop click here, and on Retreat between 10th and 13th June 2016 click here
    • Social Media: my new author page on Facebook where I’m posting tips, quotes, aspects of my personal journey, videos and more  – click here
    • Individual Mentoring: perhaps one of the most powerful and transformative ways of all to discover your true self and express your true voice, on the page and in the world – click here

On the day the book was published, the overwhelming feeling I had was one of deep gratitude (tinged with relief and a sense of awe!) for everything and everyone who had contributed to me arriving at that point.

Now, the next level of my authorship is unfolding and my commitment to you is to continue sharing all that I learn along the way to enable you to follow your own creative calling. Don’t wait until you feel ready; that moment will never arrive. Simply ask yourself, if not now, when?

To your conscious & creative success!

electricity-505869_640A few years ago I wrote an article on how to create a New Year strategy for success and inject a fresh burst of energy into your plans for writing and publishing your book.

7 Timeless Tips for Conscious Writing Success

January 13, 2014

A couple of years ago I wrote an article on how to create a New Year strategy for success and inject a fresh burst of energy into your plans for writing and publishing your book.

When I reviewed it in preparation to share something of real value with you to herald the start of 2014, it struck me how the tips are not just related to success at the start of the year.

The timeless nature of the seven suggestions inspired me to share them with you one more time alongside one additional recommendation. That is to take advantage of the fresh wave of energy and enhanced sense of creative possibility which is a factor of the New Year.

So if you’re ready to follow through on your impulse to write what you are here to write in 2014, bring these tips to life by taking action within the next seven days. Then keep the momentum going by connecting with other Conscious Writers who are doing the same. Enjoy!

Lessons (Re)Learned from Writing My Second Book (Part 2)

October 7, 2013

Three months ago I wrote an article called 7 Lessons (Re)Learned From Writing My Second Book (Part 1)*. At the time I thought that the next installment would come at the end of my writing process.

However, I am inspired to offer some additional insights now, even though I am still in the midst of this book emerging into form on the page.

Having consciously chosen to give it the time and space it needs alongside honouring all of my other commitments, this is evidence of the first lesson of the original article: allow more time than you think to write your book – then double it!

With that said, here are three more reminders about actions that truly make a difference to book writing success:
