5 Good Things Creative Practice

April 10, 2017

I’ve always had an abundance of ideas about almost everything; far more than I could ever follow through on!

In fact, the more awareness and presence I cultivate the more creative I naturally become so the flow of inspiration continues to increase.

Of course this is wonderful for all of the projects I love creating for my work and personal priorities.

Yet it’s also a double-edged sword.

Managing the Creative Fire

Over the years I’ve had to learn to manage this creative fire and the intense energy that’s an integral part of it.

Yet there have been many occasions in the past where I’ve been left feeling depleted from having followed my enthusiasm for too many possibilities and ended up taking on too much.

Time to follow through on your dreams…

February 22, 2017

The weeks are zipping by and I’m inspired to reach out to you today to say that if your good intentions for 2017 are starting to fade already, you’re not alone!

When the New Year impulse for a ‘fresh start’ meets the reality of everyday life, it’s all too easy to lose sight of what’s truly important to you as the endless list of commitments takes over.

Even when you know that you’d like to explore your creative ideas, write and make the shift into the next phase of your life, it’s tough to go it alone, especially in such turbulent and uncertain times.

Walking the Path with Guidance and Support

Fortunately, there’s an alternative and it comes in the form of walking the path with intuitive guidance and practical support.

If you’ve never worked with a mentor before, it’s hard to imagine just how amazingly helpful and transformative the journey can be with this kind of partnership in place.

So this is my invitation for you to experience that for yourself.

If you’re as ready as you’ll ever be to follow through on your dreams and express yourself authentically in the world with a professional mentor guiding you every step of the way, now is the perfect moment!

My new six month Mentoring Series starts in MARCH…

It provides a rhythm, structure and positive accountability for you to begin, develop or complete your current priorities with regular guidance and feedback to ensure you’re always on track with your core purpose.

Everything you need to know about what’s on offer, how the Mentoring works and the three different packages available can be found by clicking here.

My speciality is to bring deep intuitive insight to open the way for you to reconnect with the essence of who you are and express your true calling consciously and creatively in the world.

There are only 5 places available because of the in-depth nature of our work together and these are offered on a first come basis.

If you’re interested to find out more, simply email Julia@JuliaMcCutchen.com to book a FREE 20 minute Discovery Session so we can discuss the details and make sure this is the right way forwards for you.

I’ll look forward to hearing from you and I hope to have the opportunity to guide you to follow through on your dreams at this significant moment in time.

Who Are You Before the Writing Begins?

February 16, 2017

All of a sudden, as if from nowhere, an idea or phrase arrives fully formed in my awareness; it’s like receiving a ready-made piece of a creative jigsaw. The complete picture is often revealed at a later date yet I’ve learned to pay attention and capture these fragments straight away.

An example is the question, who are you before the writing begins?

It came to me in the early days of developing my ideas for Conscious Writing and remains one of the key questions for self-enquiry that lead you to discover your authentic voice as a Conscious Writer.

Your Authentic Voice

The usual definitions of what your authentic voice is have always left me feeling short-changed as they seem limited and incomplete, certainly where Conscious Writing is concerned.

Heal Yourself with Conscious Writing

September 5, 2016

mandala-1302804_640I’ve worked with many writers over the years who feel that writing is an absolute lifeline they can’t do without. Zen Buddhist, teacher and author Gail Sher says that it saved her life. Others feel that it restores their sanity in a crazy and chaotic world.

The therapeutic benefits of writing are well documented and include easing the feelings of emotional trauma, reducing stress, solving problems more effectively and even speeding up physical healing.

Conscious Writing incorporates all of these and guides us into the deepest realms of true healing; healing that restores our innate sense of wholeness.

Whether we realize it or not, we all have what we could call an ‘original wound’ which is the convincing illusion of separation from oneness with all that is.

Healing this primal wound happens naturally when we dissolve everything that gets in the way of us realizing our true nature as an expression of wholeness and transform our lives to become authentic reflections of our soul.

So how does Conscious Writing contribute to this core process of healing and transformation?

What’s new this month?

August 4, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

With summer well and truly underway here in the UK, we’ve had our usual mix of warm sunshine and wet days.

This reminds me of the ups and downs of the creative process and the reality of authorship. As conscious writers, we all need to develop resilience in order to stay the course to completion and beyond!

We also need to carve out proper time and space to dive in to developing our ideas and doing our writing over and above the short regular stints we usually do, and the summer is a wonderful time to do just that.

Without this kind of creative immersion, our projects often take far longer than we’d ideally like and sometimes run out of steam altogether, ending up gathering dust at the back of the cupboard.

Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats

This month I’m offering you the opportunity to immerse yourself in your creative ideas and writing on a one, two or three day retreat working with me in person and on a one-to-one basis.

Wherever you are on your creative journey and no matter how little or how much experience you have, the retreat is tailored to suit your exact needs.

Perhaps you’re not yet clear about what ideas to focus on and haven’t written a word? Or maybe you’re already a blogger, author or coach ready to explore your next creative and business steps?

These individually guided retreats will take place on dates to be agreed between us during the months of August, September, October and November. Read more here.

Conscious Writing Online Course

If you’re not able to travel to attend an in-person retreat, you might be interested in the new online course that I’m in the process of creating.

It’s going to be a wonderful new way for you to experience conscious writing and I’m looking forward to sharing more information about it with you soon.

In the meantime, if you’d like to sign up to receive advance notification about it, simply send me an email here or use info@iaccw.com

Finally, I’m delighted to share the details of a Super Natural Healing Summit which starts on Monday 15 August. The focus is How to Create Emotional, Physical and Spiritual Health and Lead Your Thriving Joyful Life and you can listen to my interview on the healing aspects of conscious writing for free on Friday 26 August. Read more here.

Till next month…

Create Space for Conscious Creativity

August 3, 2016

zen-970477_640From the earliest times, sages and mystics have shared an abundance of secrets for waking up to our true nature and becoming fully conscious.

Even the simple yet timeless technique of paying attention to the flow of the breath in and out of our body is a powerful way to still the chatter of our everyday mind and open the way for deeper levels of awareness to arise.

As we increasingly open to there being more to life than meets the eye, we discover a naturally occurring creative impulse that seeks expression in the world.

Making space for a conscious approach to expressing this creative impulse leads us to discover our true calling and make the contribution we’re here to make. Ultimately we reap the full rewards of conscious and creative living as our lives become an authentic reflection of our soul.

What is conscious creativity?

Conscious creativity is a combination of self-realization (conscious) and self-expression (creativity). It’s a holistic way to align ourselves with the creative flow of life and validate the inclination we all have for authentic self-discovery and expression.

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:

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.

The Transformative Value of a Conscious and Creative Reboot

March 8, 2016

fire-1021224_640The last year has been a massive reality check for me with regard to the sheer volume of time, energy and effort that is required to see a book through from manuscript completion to successful publication.

Looking back it feels like the conscious writing process to craft the body of work that became my book was the easy part, although it didn’t always feel like that at the time!

Fortunately, my daily practice of yoga, meditation and more largely enabled me to remain present to what ‘is’ through the roller coaster ride of the publishing process. It was a high priority for me to be connected to inner stillness amidst the array of outer activities, all of which involved absolute deadlines.

Yet as the months passed, the more fatigued I felt, the harder it became to maintain the fullness of my balanced perspective. Finally, the moment came when all the major projects were completed, the launch momentum settled and I was able to stop for more than a brief interlude.

Taking time off to recharge was an extremely welcome immersion in the bliss of stillness, silence, space and the restorative energy of the natural world. I subsequently felt prompted to write a short piece to share my experience and encourage you to remember the importance of what I lovingly call a conscious and creative reboot.

Here it is…
