5 Steps to Craft Your Creative Vision for 2019

January 10, 2019

I know that January isn’t celebrated as the start of the New Year by everyone but for me it’s one opportunity among many to harness the potential of new beginnings.

So I immerse myself in that inspiring alpha energy and ride the wave of creative possibilities and fresh perspectives.

The turn of the calendar year always feels like a good time to do an end of year review and reflect on all that has happened over the previous 12 months.

In the space that process creates, there’s room for me to make conscious choices about what’s most important for the next phase of my life and work.

Claim Your Right to Create

Along the way I’ve realized that this approach requires me to claim my right to create and express myself authentically in the world rather than wait for some mythical permission to arrive from elsewhere.

When I do so, the positive knock-on effect is that I’m then able to show up more joyfully for all of my commitments.

As a result, it turns out that everyone benefits from me making it a priority to create what I’m here to create in all areas of my life!

7 Reasons to Be Creatively Consistent

December 12, 2018

Two years ago today I published my first “Conscious Writing for Creative Living” blog.

Now, with over 100 posts written and in recognition of a notable milestone reached, I’m inspired to share another aspect of what I’ve learnt along the way – the value of consistency.

Showing up regularly has taught me a great deal about myself, the authenticity of my voice and the impact of my message as I’ve engaged with readers both on and off the blog.

Stretch, Challenge and Reward

Writing weekly blogs has certainly stretched and challenged me at every level.

Ultimately, however, it is deeply rewarding as a way of following through on my core purpose to write, live and lead as consciously, creatively and authentically as I can; and to guide others to be and do the same.

Consistency is one of the defining factors between failure and success – however you define what those terms mean for you.

So here are 7 reasons that I hope will inspire you to be creatively consistent in order to experience the cumulative rewards yourself.

The Importance of Internal Validation for Conscious Writers

July 7, 2018

A few days ago I met up with a friend and colleague who’s just finished the first draft of the book she’s been working on for more than a year.

She was delighted to have completed the manuscript on time, and even more importantly, feels elated by the way it has turned out.

Having not written anything longer than articles and blog posts before, initially she wasn’t sure if she had what it takes to write a full length book.

Now she’s done so in a way that feels to her like “mission accomplished”, and whatever happens from this point on, nothing can take away her strong sense of creative achievement.

Internal Validation

In a recent post on The Creative Power of Deadlines, I shared my own experience of feeling an immense degree of internal validation when I completed the manuscript for my book Conscious Writing.

There’s nothing quite like the inner sense that you’ve created something from nothing in a way that’s delivered the deepest and most authentic expression of your message in the best way you’re able to at the time.

Finding Your Conscious Writing Rhythm – Part 1

June 6, 2018

One of the topics that always comes up in mentoring sessions with people who are making the transition from thinking about writing to taking action is how to find a good writing rhythm.

This is such an important subject that I’ve decided to do a couple of posts covering the key practical aspects to consider.

Let’s start by exploring the question…

WHEN?
As a general rule, putting your writing first works for most people most of the time.

This means that you ideally start the day with some kind of energy and/or meditation practice and then write before anything else.

Even if you only spend 15 or 20 minu tes writing, at least you’ve fulfilled your commitment to your creative impulse before you tackle other tasks.

The Writing Habit

Just 15 minutes a day quickly builds the writing habit you need to establish if you want to take your writing seriously.

However, this approach doesn’t work for everyone. Some writers love the early evening twilight zone or come alive creatively at the end of the day and well into the night.

As long as whatever you choose is sustainable and produces the results you’re aiming for, it’s serving its intended purpose.

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.

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.

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.
