Explore the Intuitive Path to Creativity

“It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It’s my partner." Jonas Salk This week I’m urging you to take a solo adventure leading into your deep, rich, creative potential. You'll be guided exclusively by your intuition. Throw out the road maps (and any tendencies toward logic). Stay open to the possibilities (and intuitive promptings) and you’ll make some amazing discoveries.

Failure leads to creative success!

“Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover will be yourself.” Alan Alda This week we are going to practice making mistakes. Our goals are to take wild leaps of faith and to make friends with failure. Why? Because when we’re afraid to try, our creative potential (and joy) begin to dry up. It’s Spring – the season of new growth, planting seeds of possibility, and beautiful beginnings. While Robert H. Schuller’s question is thought provoking, I’m wondering, “What would you create if you knew you couldn’t fail?” Here’s the secret: every creative act leads to an opening or awareness. The only way to truly fail – is not to try. The two collages I created this week look at my personal failures to meet self-imposed expectations related to getting my books published and releasing unhealthy eating patterns. I am choosing to see these ‘creative roads not yet taken’ as ‘feedback.’
