Dancing within the Creative Fire

Dancing within the Creative Fire

A few months ago I started getting in touch with a feeling of something simmering within me.  It had been brewing for quite sometime.  I had been feeling like I was off my game for quite sometime, so this little something, even though buried deep inside, felt vastly promising!  I could feel the flames licking at my heels to move me into action, but I still struggled to ignite them enough to feel a push of vital energy behind them.

Tools for the Creative Fire

I dug in with my best tools for stoking the creative fire to see if I could move past simmering and into flame.

I started with inner journey work, partnered with sacred cacao from Guatemala.  I journaled, created mind maps of the many projects that came up for me.  I visited with trusted mentors, potential collaborators, and even complete strangers.

Then I could feel I had a few ideas spark up inside.  I knew enough from the personal work I was doing to understand I should be focusing on something live and face-to-face….an event of some kind.

I explored potential event spaces.  I looked for inspiration and invited the Universe to share direction and wisdom with me.  I looked for clues that I was on the right path and acted like something was going to come of all the Wish-To energy….even though I often still felt just an inkling of what might actually come of my sparks.  I moved forward, playing the part of a person who strongly believed something big was coming my way.

Then, it happened.  Several of my creative ideas started to take shape.  I leaned heavy on my intuition.  If something felt right and easy, I went with that.  If there was a struggle, a snag and hook inside, I looked for the easy button! And within a few of those key  ideas, other ideas came in and shifted the direction so that multiple interests were finding life within a few major projects.

Suddenly, I was on fire!

Sacred TempleKeepers was birthed, a partnership between me and Milena Worsham from Running Buffalo Journeys.

Milena and I have been friends and worked together both in business and for personal development for years.  She lives primarily in Guatemala but through the magic of the internet, we manage to share our spiritual journey in nearly weekly visits.

And so we began planning a series of PlayShops around the cacao we both love and use as part of our regular practice of self inquiry. We blended in creativity, spirituality, and a hefty dose of play.

I hunkered down and rode the wave of productivity to its pinnacle.  Our collaboration was solidified. There were meetings on Skype, back and forth emails, meditating, and brainstorming with additional partners.  Then, long nights to write copy and design promotional materials for the markets we were designing our PlayShops around. I love what we have brought to life together.

As a result, I have been absent from this site and very present in Creativity Tribe live events and collaborations.

Part of me struggled with not keeping Creativity Tribe firmly up-to-date.  But I decided to stay with the momentum.  I think that was the right direction.

I have spent the last several weeks traveling and guiding our special gatherings, as well as offering private sacred cacao sessions. Sunday ended the bulk of this line of events, and the momentum for follow-up events is strong in the air. I am brilliantly tired and joyfully filled up!

This opens a new chapter for me.  What it will be exactly, I am eager to see.  I am allowing the sparks of possibility to express themselves as I continue to dance within the creative fire.  I can’t wait to share the evolution with you!
