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.

IACCW Member Event: Creating from the Space Within

November 3, 2016

Julia McCutchen interviews Michael Neill MichaelNeill_250
on 10th November

There is a space within us where the screenwriter Sacha Gervasi tells us, “time stands still and creative ideas flow through like a river.” It’s the space of pure possibility – point zero for any creative endeavor.

Join me alongside Michael Neill, author of The Space Within, for a fascinating exploration of how close at hand this deeper potential sits, and how to find it within yourself and spend more time in it in your work.

We will explore:

  • Why self-esteem and self-confidence are largely irrelevant to your success as a writer
  • How to shift your relationship with a blank page
  • A different way of thinking about discipline
  • Spending more time in the river and less time sitting watching from the shore
  • How do you know when you’re done?

Michael Neill is an internationally renowned transformative coach and the best-selling author of The Inside-Out Revolution and The Space Within. He has spent over 25 years as a coach, adviser, friend, mentor, and creative spark plug to celebrities, CEOs, royalty, and people who want to get more out of themselves and their lives. His books have been translated into 17 languages, and his public talks, retreats, and seminars have touched and transformed lives at the United Nations and on six continents around the world. Michael’s weekly radio show, Living from the Inside Out, has been a listener favorite on Hay House Radio for over a decade; his TEDx talk, ‘Why Aren’t We Awesomer?’, has been viewed by over 150,000 people around the world. You can follow him on Twitter and Facebook, and get access to the Caffeine for the Soul podcast and blog at www.michaelneill.org.

 

IACCW Member Event: The Simple Steps to a Fulfilling Career as a Conscious and Creative Writer

March 3, 2016

Julia McCutchen interviews Marc AllenMarcAllen120
on Thursday 10th March

We all have our own definitions of what it means to succeed – as a writer and in life. Yet most of us have been taught that success requires a great deal of hard work, which is a belief almost all of us have accepted as we’ve grown up in this culture. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can experience creative success — as we choose to define it — through an approach that has ease at its core.

Internationally renowned author, composer, publisher and entrepreneur Marc Allen figured out how to become successful doing what he loved as a writer and seminar leader through trial and error. Over the years, alongside writing and publishing multiple books, he developed an approach that became a powerful audio course called Success With Ease.

In this interview, Marc will present a condensed version of his Success With Ease audio course, which includes his simple but effective keys to becoming successful doing what you love as a conscious and creative writer and making that work for you financially. He will also share his experience of writing and publishing, so that by the end you will know how to:

  • Create a clear inner vision of the creative life you want to live as a writer
  • Manifest that vision in an easy and relaxed, healthy and positive way
  • Overcome whatever obstacles you encounter including creative resistance
  • Discover the power of partnership and the impact it can have for your authorship
  • Find out whether self-publishing is the right path for you
  • Live the life of your dreams as an author and show others how to do the same!

Marc Allen has written several books, including The Magical Path, The Greatest Secret of All, The Millionaire Course, Visionary Business, and Tantra for the West. He is an internationally renowned author, composer, and entrepreneur. He co-founded New World Library (with Shakti Gawain) and has guided the company, as president and publisher, from a small start-up to its current position as a major player in independent publishing. He leads seminars in northern California and gives teleseminars that reach people all over the world. For more information visit www.MarcAllen.com and www.NewWorldLibrary.com.

 

IACCW Member Event: How to Access Your Inspired Mind Consistently as a Conscious Writer

December 3, 2015

Julia McCutchen interviews Marlise KarlinMarliseKarlin_250
on Thursday 10th December

All writers require a regular flow of inspiration from a mix of inner and outer sources. Yet it isn’t always easy to access the inspired part of ourselves amidst the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Through her synthesis of the landmark sciences of Neuroplasticity, Epigenetics, and holistic therapies, Marlise Karlin, the founder of The Simplicity of Stillness® method, has a solution which involves the use of a meditation technology that works even if your mind isn’t still.

In this interview, you’ll learn how to increase your ability to find balance and flow as well as how to

  • access the dynamic intelligence in you – in only five minutes
  • diminish self-defeating patterns
  • understand why ‘writers block’ is a myth
  • expand your ability to bring your dreams of authorship into reality
  • become more courageous, creative and prosperous as a writer

Marlise Karlin, pioneering researcher, humanitarian activist, and author has been interviewed on NBC and Fox News and shared the stage with numerous renowned thought leaders including Gregg Braden, Panache Desai, and Dr. Eric Pearl. Converging research from 20+ years in Eastern holistic traditions and modern science, including Epigenetics and Neuroplasticity, Marlise developed The Simplicity of Stillness®, SOS Method. Over a decade of case studies from 6 continents has shaped this advanced meditation technology that has the power to release self-defeating patterns, activate energetic flows in the body, and imprint new neural pathways to accelerate healing and your highest potential.

3 Ways to Benefit from the Energy of the Equinox as a Conscious Writer

September 23, 2015

autumn-110668_350It’s the autumn equinox today here in the northern hemisphere, the first day of autumn before the darkness of winter leads into the rebirth of spring. The equinox is a time when there is a natural balance between day and night, light and dark.

Paying attention to what is happening all around us as the trees begin to shed their leaves and the seeds that were planted in spring reach maturity provides us with an opportunity as Conscious Writers. Nature shows us the way as the cycle of life, death and rebirth is an elegant metaphor for the creative process.

So this is a perfect moment to pause and take stock of where we are in relation to harvesting the fruits of our creative endeavours. It’s also an opportunity to reflect on the bigger picture of the meaning of life and its fragility. The cooler weather conditions favour slowing down after the exuberance of summer and taking time for introspection.

What insights can we gain from connecting with the energy of the equinox and observing the wheel of life as it continues to turn?

What’s new this month?

March 13, 2015

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

As the days lengthen and the light increases with the onset of spring here in the northern hemisphere, I’m delighted to share that my new book is now finished!

I am somewhat in awe of the of the intensely challenging and richly rewarding process of having written this book from the deepest inside out space it has been possible for me to inhabit at this time.

Yet, stepping back and reviewing the manuscript with a fresh eye after a short break, it feels very much like ‘mission accomplished’!

I’ll look forward to hearing your reaction when it is published in September. In the meantime, there are two opportunities for you to experience the contents directly to guide and support your conscious and creative projects this year.

Scholarship 2015 – Applications Invited

Applications for our 3rd annual scholarship which offers FREE and discounted places for the six month Mentoring Series are now invited.

This opportunity to receive intuitive professional guidance to make tangible progress with your writing ideas has been described as a deep and transformative experience… by the end of the Scholarship, I had completed the first draft of my book.”

The application deadline is the Spring Equinox, Saturday 21 March. To read more, click here.

Conscious Writing Retreat – Two Pay Option

The Early Bird tickets for our retreat which is taking place from Friday 22 to Monday 25 May are now sold out but we have introduced a two pay option so that you can spread the investment over two months.

Why not join us and give yourself the gift of time and space away from the regular routines of everyday life to focus on moving your writing ideas and project(s) forwards this year?

The immersion in three days of conscious living and deep creative exploration will be a memorable and rewarding experience. But don’t just take my word for it – watch some video testimonials and read the words of previous participants by clicking here.

Finally, it seems appropriate to share an edited extract from my book with you this month. It is a reminder of the importance of nurturing your creative soul at every phase of the creative cycle. Read the article by clicking here.

Enjoy!

Nurturing Our Creative Soul as Conscious Writers

March 11, 2015

I am delighted to share this edited extract from my new book, ‘Conscious Writing: How to Write from Your Heart with the Voice of Your Soul’ (Hay House, September 2015). Enjoy 🙂

creative_wellNurturing our creative soul as Conscious Writers involves frequently filling our inner creative well so that it never runs dry and always allows our creativity to flow freely.

Conscious Creativity teaches us to do this by connecting with the whole creative cycle, and honouring each and every phase.

Yet such an approach is rarely accepted as a valid use of our precious time. Instead we are drawn by the demands of contemporary life in the western world to busy ourselves with endless ‘doing’, and direct our energy exclusively outwards to support family and friends, earn our living, and maintain our personal space.

Whilst we all need to honour our commitments respectfully, let’s remember this process begins with honouring our commitments to ourselves.

In the fast lane of doing all that seems essential, we often forget to replenish our inner resources beyond basic recharging which sees us through to the next stint on the treadmill of activity.

As a result, our output frequently far outweighs the input so we end up feeling exhausted, empty, and eventually, resentful and unwell. No wonder creative dreams are so often unfulfilled!

January 5, 2015

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.

Four Questions for Conscious Writers to Answer & Share

August 11, 2014

InvitationLast week, two invitations arrived on the same day for me to join Blog Tours which are connecting authors with similar interests and expanding the reach for the greater good of all concerned.

I love the principle of creative collaboration and deeply appreciate the resonance of writers sharing their work and supporting each other – so I’m in!

I decided to share my responses here to the four questions asked for the first Blog Tour of authors who write about intuitive understanding to lift the veil on my current writing and to spread the word about the idea.

My invitation for you is to pick up the Blog Tour thread and take it forwards so as many writers as possible can participate and benefit from the experience.

Here’s how it works. Each writer:

  • Is invited by someone to participate, introduces that person at the start of the post and includes a link to their blog. This invitation from me to you is all you need to get started.
  • Answers four questions about their writing as the main body of the post.
  • Invites another writer to continue the process and introduces them at the end of the post along with a link to their blog.
  • Posts what they have written to their blog and shares it with their audience via social media and more.
  • Asks the next writer to post their answers the following week on an agreed day and to continue the process.
Here we go …

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!
