It’s Never Too Late To Pursue Your Creative Dreams!

nevertoolate

Today I want to tell you about one of my current clients who has inspired me by the creating courage she has been able to tap into. This woman started my ACCESS! program six months ago. She hasn’t even finished the program yet, but the progress she’s made with revitalizing her creative power is so incredible and inspiring, that I felt obligated to share her compelling story with you.

Sharon is in her mid-70s. She has been retired from a very successful career for over eleven years now. She was the Executive Director of a quickly growing non-profit human services organization. Her passion for her work life stretched her personally in ways she never had thought were possible. Once a shy young girl, she stepped into the role of an outgoing, gregarious lobbyist who took any chance she got to publicly speak about her organization that she believed in so strongly.

The Moon and Your Creativity

I get very excited about the Moon. I always have. Not that I don’t also love the Sun, because I worship the Sun. Tonight, Sunday, September 27th, is the superest of the Supermoons! This is the second of three consecutive Supermoons we get to see this season, and the largest of the three. The last Supermoon triad like this was in 1982 and the next one won’t be until 2033. The reason it is called a Supermoon, is because the Moon is at the closest possible distance from the earth in its oval orbital journey, appearing 14% bigger in the sky. What could be better than that? Well, tonight there is also going to be a lunar eclipse! This means the Earth’s shadow will pass over the Moon turning it reddish in color, which is why it is sometimes called a Blood Moon. Tonight’s Supermoon will be blushing! Here in Las Vegas (PST) it will be visible and I’m planning on doing some Moongazing with my kids from a local park. The Moon will rise at 6:27 pm. At 7:47 pm it will be fully eclipsed. And it will all be over around 9:30 pm. If you saw last month’s Supermoon rising on the horizon, you know what it’s all about! It looked enormous! I can’t wait to see this one combined with the eclipse.

So, what does the Supermoon have to do with your creativity? Let’s start with symbols, because my work is all about signs and symbols. Continue reading

What’s Inside The Creativity Cloud For You?

It’s out there and it’s floating around just waiting for you to snatch it up! So what are you waiting for? Can’t see it? I can…

IMG_2561Recently a friend shared with me a story broadcasted on NPR’s Radiolab. It was titled “Me, Myself, and Muse” and it featured an interview with Elizabeth Gilbert. It’s a great show and I’ve included the link below for anyone who wants to listen to it. It’s about the struggle we sometimes have with our own creative thoughts and how we try to manage them.  Your Creativity is inside of you and outside of you all at the same time. It is something you can communicate with. You can nurture it, you can honor it, and you can negotiate with it. The one thing that it demands of you is your undivided attention. Continue reading

Imagine!

code

Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of, who do the things that no one can imagine.

This quote is taken from the movie “The Imitation Game“about Alan Turing, who invented a machine that deciphered the Enigma-coded messages exchanged amongst Hitler’s army during WWII. There’s a whole lot more to the story and it is an excellent movie I would highly recommend to anyone… But what strikes me the most is this underlying current in the film presented through this simple sentence.

I hope you will watch the film and be inspired as I was to appreciate your own creative genius. How many times have you listened to others tell you that you’re not good enough, that you’ll never be something special, that you can’t make a difference in the world? I remember hearing as an art student over and over that everything in the art world had already been done. I heard it so much that I believed it. I believed that I wouldn’t be able to make a difference. I thought to myself, what is the point, really?

The truth is, art is a product of our imaginations. Creative expression is the process of decoding the unseen world around us. Each and every one of us holds the key to unlocking this power. Sometimes we might come to common conclusions, and other times we will Continue reading
