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.

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…

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?

3 Ways to Benefit from Going the Extra Mile as a Conscious Writer

August 11, 2015

05. Intothelight351791SmallI am delighted to introduce this edited extract from the Introduction to my new book ‘Conscious Writing: Discover Your True Voice Through Mindfulness and More’ due out on 8 September (Hay House). Enjoy!

Conscious Writing involves a great deal more than simply following the impulse to write and capturing brilliant ideas in a well-crafted collection of words.

Yet writers around the globe have been doing just that for a very long time, and many have achieved impressive success in the eyes of the world.

So let’s remind ourselves why it is worth going the extra mile and opening consciously to deep inner truth as part of our creative writing practice.

October Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

October 21, 2014

rain_on_leafOpening to the creative flow of the universe.

“I still remember the day in my childhood when I was made to struggle across my lessons in a first primer… Suddenly, I came to a rhymed sentence of combined words, which may be translated thus –
‘It rains, the leaves tremble.’

At once, I came to a world wherein I recovered my full meaning. My mind touched the creative realm of expression, and at that moment I was no longer a mere student with his mind muffled by spelling lessons, enclosed by a classroom.

The rhythmic picture of tremulous leaves beaten by the rain opened before my mind the world which does not merely carry information, but a harmony with my being. The unmeaning fragments lost their individual isolation and my mind revelled in the unity of a vision.

In a similar manner, on that morning in the village, the facts of my life suddenly appeared to me in a luminous unity of truth… I felt sure that some Being who comprehended me and my world was seeking his best expression in all my experiences, uniting them into an ever-widening individuality which is a spiritual work of art.”

Rabindranath Tagore, The Religion of Man

As Conscious Writers, we align all aspects of ourselves – body, emotions, mind and soul – to clear the way for the natural creative flow of life itself to pour through us, onto the page and into the world.

November Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

November 19, 2013

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back.

Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth,
the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:

that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour
all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance,
which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

William H. Murray

Conscious Writers commit to following the inner calling of their soul,
and discover the creative magic which arises from boldly showing up to write –
come what may.

To your conscious & creative success!

What is Conscious Writing?

November 4, 2013

Discovering our authentic voice, writing with lasting impact, and standing out from the crowd are high priorities for most of us who write. But how do we go about achieving these intentions? Conscious Writing is a new approach to deep writing with full awareness which takes us into the core of what we’re really here to write, and in the process, opens the way for us to realise our true potential as authors in the world.

As her 40th birthday approached, Jane decided that the book she had thought about writing for so long could not be put off any longer. It felt like “now or never” and she was determined to see it through to completion. As a professional person who had an interest in personal development, Jane knew all about setting goals and positive thinking. She created a plan and scheduled time in her diary to begin writing.

Three months later, with only a few pages of notes written and nothing concrete achieved, she approached me for help. She was dismayed by the fact that despite her best efforts and a strong intellectual determination to write her book, it just wasn’t happening. The situation was especially frustrating for her as she was a disciplined person who usually found it easy to stick to her plans. Yet, she discovered that sheer willpower didn’t work with writing; the harder she pushed, the less progress she made!

June Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

June 21, 2013

“Ping – the immediate recognition of a truth
suddenly grasped and aptly conveyed –
is a quality writers work hard to achieve…

Language carries both unconscious and conscious meaning.
Writing can’t ping until the two are integrated.
When you hack away at your writing and it refuses to ping,
it means you still have something to learn –
either about your subject, your feelings about your subject,
or, more likely, both.

You must develop the you that ‘just knows’ (your intuition)
and stand unwaveringly by this knowledge.

Good writing happens cyclically, inside then out-side, inside then outside.
When it finally ‘pings,’ we simply bow.”

Gail Sher, One Continuous Mistake

Conscious Writers trust their intuitive impulses totally
and follow their lead towards the “ping”.

To your conscious & creative success!
