The Dragon’s Breath has past us. The ionization field moved on and we have made it through a tumultuous year. It may have effected you in a number of ways. Did you feel unfounded fear or worry? Did you loose a loved one? Did you find that days passed and nothing was done or that you felt in a fog?
This is what many felt. Not necessarily every day but much more often than usual. Often enough that it was another concern; falling unbidden like the last winter snow. 2013 will be the spring.
There will still be bad das, rain and mud; but on the whole the freshness will start to be apparent. There will be an energy in the air and those of you who are sensitive will feel it.
Continue your self care. This is a time to prepare yourself. Strengthen yourself with intu
itive knowledge and connect with the divine.
I found this amazing picture on pintrest. Somehow it speaks to me of the glorious world that we have chosen to live in. The beauty is breathtaking. It speaks to me of the color and creativity that 2013 will open up for us.
Individual readings will let you know what your personal challenges will be. Be ready for 2013. Feel confident that this is a time for preparation. Begin to gather your seeds and look forward to a glorious year 2013.
The comments that have been coming in around creativity show that many live their lives with stories, visions, and bursts of creativity. Artists see the world as a canvas – each scene a painting, each material a prop. There is always the thought fliting on the edge of consciousness – what can I make with that.
For the writer the story starts, or a few words flow. Looking at an old man our minds begin to envision descriptive words. Perhaps we “see” a past story or future premise.
The trick to living with creativity is not to limit it but to channel it. One way is to keep bringing ones self back to the work at hand. Catching the tangent and stopping it. I tell clients who tend toward negative thoughts a similar tactic. Just say stop, take a deep breath, release the thought and focus on where or what you need to.
It takes practice but it can keep one on task.
Another option is to create the idea folder or box. Sheri McConnell calls these flits of ideas and creativity Bright and Shiny Objects. My partner at Uy Creative – Maureen Uy shouts “Squirrel” when an idea pops suddenly into the conversation. Take the distraction and pop it into a folder or box. Putting it away saves it for the future dry spells or when you go I remember that idea what was it. It can also help you to refocus!
Always love when you share your thoughts! And don’t forget the challenge at #VFcheckin a chance to keep yourself on task for the 2012 goals!
Don’t be afraid to be creative!! Be wild, be joyous, let it out …. it is the best way to happiness!!
Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.
— Marsha Norman
Funny, many of my dreams are novels. I have characters, plot lines and conflict. Rarely am I in my dreams. Instead it is like reading a good book or watching a gripping television show. I am drawn into the scene as an observer.
Others tell me that this is unusual but it is the way it has always been. Perhaps that is why the quote caught my attention. I just came back from my meeting of the Milwaukee Writer’s Circle and am thinking about my fiction pieces. None of them came from my dreams but I am sure that I process the story lines as I sleep and awake with new ideas. New ways that my heroes and heroines want to be portrayed.
Share your muse, your way of creating. I’d love to learn about your creative process!
I had a discussion tonight about how difficult some people find it to get started. how difficult they find creating something from nothing. but for me it is so easy. Just give me a pen, paper or a computer and I fill the blank space with words.
