About a year or so ago I decided to reclaim the ‘writer’ & the ‘creative’ within me, and slowly but surely, that’s what I have been doing. Along the way I’ve also been reclaiming every other part of myself that I had lost, forgotten, given away, or believed I wasn’t worthy of. I know exactly when I gave away my writing – I was 6 years old. After a particular event surrounding a piece of creative writing I did in my first year of primary school (basically some comments from a teacher and parent that I must have copied it from a book because no 6 year old could write that descriptively), I believed what I did was wrong in some way or not good enough, not acceptable – whatever it was my precious little brain decided to make of it and I stopped writing from my heart, really. I did what I needed to do to get through school and I still got immense joy from reading, I just believed that I couldn’t write - that the joy of and talent for, writing was reserved for published Authors, journalists and the like.
It wasn’t until recently, that I re-discovered my love of words. I started to feel in my heart the resonance of certain words and I just started to let those feelings and words flow. I started reading fiction books again and people started making a whole heap of comments on my posts and emails saying things like “you write so well”, “you are such a great story teller”, “I love reading your words” and that really woke something up in me. Suddenly I heard my Soul whispering, remember how much you love words and writing?!
Yes, I did remember!
I love the way I can choose a word and it fits me just perfectly, like it’s imbued with the very essence of my Soul. I delight in asking a woman to tell me some of the words that describe her Soul’s essence and watching her nail it with such ease and accuracy. Oh, the way one word can give me goose bumps all over and tingles in the air around my ears. You could argue that we don’t need words once we discover the power of energy, but gosh they feel good; don’t they just enrich life? I love being enchanted by words again – especially in relation to language and how we use our words (both written and spoken) to create the reality we live in. That’s a whole different musing for another time though.
Back to the playful writing course. I don’t even need to tell you about the events that led to me being there – of course I found out about it less than 24hrs before it started, booked online 2 hrs before and walked in knowing I was meant to be there!! I was nervous to go, I told myself all the excuses like you aren’t a creative writer, you mainly channel and write in more of a self-help way, this isn’t for you…but I went anyway because my Soul was nudging me to.
During the night I actually wasn’t concerned about words much, I was more interested in which parts of the night were making me feel uncomfortable. Which parts were easy for me, which parts didn’t feel in flow, all the usual stuff I like to ponder. Observing myself and my reactions to things. Noticing my comfort levels & what I needed to lean into.
As soon as I walked away at the end of the night I could feel my juices flowing, something about being in the energy of a whole group of people playing with & exploring words, opened me up. In fact, the whole way through I had downloads dropping in! I danced in my car all the way home because my field was buzzing, alight with energy just begging to be channelled into some form of expression. I picked up some awesome writing techniques to play with and some personal insights as well. It really made me think about the ways I consciously weave my energy into my words; because even though it’s more about the energetic transmission, certain words just have a potent energy or a high frequency. Particular words resonate with my Soul and they are then better able to transmit my energy to you.
Beyond all of that though, the course isn’t even really about the words for me, it’s about opening up my channels and getting into my creative flow. I can feel when I’m in my flow and it feels divine. My body overflows with creative juices and my Soul feels like she is effervescent. THIS, is when I feel the most alive!!
And here’s what it means for you: You have the creative energy of entire universes flowing through you – it just needs to be woken up. Remember how fun it is to dance, to write, to sing, to play, to explore – whatever it is for you, claim it and have fun with it. Follow the breadcrumbs of what comes naturally to you and what FEELS GOOD; and find your creative flow. If painting lights you up…then you’re a painter – own it! If styling your home or your daily outfit brings you joy, then own it and DO IT EVERYDAY. We all have our own form of creative genius and I am giving you permission right now to immerse yourself in it and feel the most alive you have ever felt. And remember that you don’t have to do it the same as anybody else does it!! It’s all about doing what makes YOU feel alive. Begin to explore what makes you feel this way, is it cooking, drawing, singing, making things, hair styles, gardening…and start to play with how you can bring it into your everyday.
What this does for you energetically (from my own experience) is that it opens up your field. Channels open and creative inspiration starts to flow in. You have a choice. You can do nothing with it, or you can channel the inspiration into some sort of creation (however big or small). Once you begin to use that creative energy how it wants to be used, you will begin to see other changes as well. You may become more present, more peaceful and better able to express yourself in other ways (for example, if you channel your creative energy through drawing maybe you will start to find other ways that you like to express yourself, like dancing). You will raise your energetic set point (the frequency you usually vibe at) and life will begin to feel more delicious. But don’t take my word for it, I want you to experience it with me!
