Is Your Creativity Being Destroyed Because Of Fear?

For the longest time, in certain areas in my life, I have allowed my creativity to be destroyed by fear. What I mean by destroyed is that I have some past conditioning that is a bit tough-going to move through and because of this I have allowed my inner comparison junkie to have full reign over my creativity. Those areas where I wasn’t criticised or shamed in childhood stood the… View Post

Did Your Passion Get Lost in Childhood?

Last week I wrote about why feeling safe is the beginning of change, because I realised that if a part of us doesn’t feel safe to change, we will struggle in adulthood to make changes or allow changes to come about. We may resist change, be frightened of change, wonder if we can handle change or be unsure whether to begin new things because our safety is locked in our… View Post

A Positive Attitude Makes Each Day Like Spring

‘When you rise each day like spring = every day is a flowering’ ~ Kari Hohne Having a positive attitude is an ongoing journey for me. Like many, I’ve been taught and conditioned to have a negative attitude. I spent 30+ years most of the time expecting the worst, preparing for failure and having an uncomfortable addiction to fear. In the UK right now, it is spring, my favourite season… View Post

How To Find Out What You Really Want

Are you frustrated by the lack in your life? Are those things you really want just not happening? It’s easy to get attached to a specific outcome to make us happy. We’re surrounded by affluence in the West and encouraged to pin all our hopes and dreams on the outer world. While we might believe that happiness lies within, inwardly many of us may ‘secretly’ hope for circumstances to change… View Post

How To Free The Inner Child From The ‘Grown-Up’ Prison

How To Free The Inner Child From The ‘Grown-Up’ Prison Filled with inhibitions? Crippling self-consciousness? Frightened to surrender control to the unknown? In my earlier years, I was taught not only are children ‘seen but not heard’ but that the natural flamboyant, free, wild child inside was embarrassing to those adults around me. So from around the age 3-4 years old, I tamed my spirit and the wildness was locked… View Post

Are You Killing Your Inner Child With Perfectionism?

‘Tis the season to be jolly’ apparently right now. Christmas is coming fast and this year I decided to make some gifts for people in a group I am a member of. Crafts and artistic creations. So I bought all the stuff needed, well I thought I needed, and this afternoon I sat down to start creating. What Happened? Perfectionism hit. My entire body got tense. Nothing I tried would… View Post

Painting My World – Looking Out The Window At The Canvas Of Life

Do you realise how much you paint this life you live? While I followed the law of attraction, create your reality, for a long time, nothing has come close to explaining the meaning of life until recently. As I mentioned in my blog entry  ‘On Being A Victim – The Larger Perspective’, this reality of form is an illusion of the senses. The picture is far wider, far bigger than I… View Post

Do You Still Have The Explorers Heart?

This week I realised my lovely ego was attempting to get me to run, leap and jump into the future me. It wanted me to be beyond where I was in that moment, to fly with creativity before I have my wings, and I listened for a little while. I asked myself do I want to be a ‘professional’ artist, right now? Sell my work.   OH YES! my ego… View Post

Creativity & The Law Of Attraction

   “Art is a matter of commitment. Commitment is of interest to the Great Creator. When we display the faith necessary to make our art, the Great Creator displays an interest and an active hand in supporting what it is we are doing. We receive supply in all forms.” Julia Cameron –~Walking In This World~ This is where I feel the ‘Law Of Attraction’ gives us a helping hand in life.… View Post

Creative Pathmarkers

I sit here and wonder: “Do the creative monsters of our past act as path-markers defining the twists and turns that were necessary to give us the juice in the present to make us better artists?” Were the people who ‘showered on our parade’ sent to us so we could define the kind of person we want to be? I wonder. The wounded headmistress from my past who said I embarrassed the… View Post
