Or are you the person who says, “I’m not that creative?”
It doesn’t matter which camp you are in because you
don’t need to think you are “creative” to get rid of blocked
When you feel stuck in any area of your life you are actually
being invited to shake up your perspective and get your
energy flowing again.
It all started when I got a camera for my birthday.
For the past few months I’ve been deep in launching, creating content and running my Coach Training Program, The Art of Becoming a Coach. It has been one of the most rewarding and biggest challenges I have taken on. Grateful.
To sum it up: This project has taken lots of energy, time, heart and focus to deliver what I promised. More than I could’ve imagined.
For me creating content lights me up, it’s part of my genius zone, but I was starting to feel like all of my energy was focused on the program because it was. I began to feel stagnant in other areas of my life, stuff was piling up, and honestly I could not take on anything else.
I was meditating, doing yoga and all of my usual self-care goto’s to fill me up but was still secretly wanting to use my new camera to let out my inner photographer. I wanted to find a way to make that happen without feeling drained or for it be too involved – if you know what I mean.
Ask and you shall receive.
Bam! Then I saw my friend Catherine Just was leading a program called In Plain Sight was starting soon. I was on the fence thinking I needed to know how to use my camera but then I jumped in and super happy I did.
My world was cracked open. My perspective was shifted. My energy started flowing in all areas of my life. Bye bye stagnation hello energy flow! (Thank you Catherine…)
Over the last month I became even more intimate with my world. I took a daily photograph focused on my theme Textures and discovered how texture is important to my world. Every day brought me deeper into my world and without having my attention on what was stuck in my life and in about a week it just moved. Pretty cool, right?
It became a way for me to connect to the universe, god, it was part of my daily meditation.
Here are some photos from my month of discovery:

Get your energy moving + you’ll be surprised by the outcome.
When you deliberately choose to stoke the fire of your creative mind, your right brain, you will begin to see more opportunities to solve any issues you are dealing with.
NOTE: You do not need to have a goal, this is actually really healthy and freeing.
You will gain a new perspective and begin to feel more alive.
You will wake up the child inside and see the world with wonder.
You will tap into your heart and the divine mind and begin to inspire yourself.
Some ideas of what you can do to bring more creative flow into your life:
1. Start painting daily
2. Pick up your camera (Psst…Catherine’s new program starts in August)
3. Draw the sunrise or sunset every day
4. Pick up a coloring book and color daily
5. Write poetry about your day
6. Shoot a daily video or a mini movie
7. Write a song daily
8. Make a daily collage
9. Pick up some clay + play with it daily
10. Start a Mosaic project
11. Knit or Macramé
12. Make stained glass
Do any of these suggestions stoke the fires of your creativity?
Great! Then go for the one that gets you going.
If not then ask yourself, “What projects did I get lost in as a child that brought me joy?”
See what comes up then get started with bringing whatever that is, (your creative project), into your life for the next week, month or longer.
