Visioning Creativity Tribe 2016

Visioning Creativity Tribe

The beginning of a new year begs us to look into our hearts and claim the vision we see there.  I adore what my heart has been whispering to me about Visioning Creativity Tribe.  It is encouraging me to reach out and connect with more people, to create more opportunities…. events, workshops, e-courses, meet ups, and ceremonies… to help others discover what lives in their hearts.

As a Life Coach and Sacred Creativity Guide, helping others craft their life brings me a lot of joy.  I know what it is like to occasionally need a hand wrangling the stampede of ideas, worries, fears, and hopes that make their way through the mind on any given day.  Having tools and a few tricks can really make a big difference.

Favorite Tip for Visioning: Get Sensual

Bringing a vision to life can be challenging.  Often, self-doubt gets in the way.  The more you can flesh out the idea, the easier it is for your mind to grasp onto it and pull it into your reality.  My favorite way to do this is to bring the senses into my vision.  This simple tip will help you bring your visions to life.

As you imagine what your vision will be like as it comes to life, imagine it with all your senses.  How will your vision tastes, smells, moves, sounds, or feels?

For example, if you are visioning better health you can imagine the feel of the sun on your skin as you are walking at the local Botanical Garden.  Take it further and see the flowers, the dew on the pedals, the sound of the birds….bring the vision into a 3D  experience.

If you are visioning financial security, you can sensualize that vision by imagining the feel of your favorite pen in your hand as you write out a budget that includes a growing philanthropic fund and a nest egg.  Imagine how your money will take shape in your life and the lives of others.  Imagine the eyes of the child who is blessed by the vitality your gifts will bring.  You may imagine the most amazing Middle Eastern dinner that you share with friends, Moroccan music playing in the back ground, and the smell of chia wafting through the air.  Let the senses go wild.

Getting Sensual while Visioning Creativity Tribe

I am a visual person…so when I discovered Biteable, I thought it would be a fun way to paint out in video the essence of Creativity Tribe’s journey for 2016.  Visions start with a feeling, an inking, and a dream.  And the clearer we get, the more they flesh out.  These are seeds…..enjoy.

One Little Word 2016

One Little Word for 2016

I am always looking for creative ways to help me guide my life in the direction of my heart, my passions, and my dreams.  In 2012 when I discovered Ali Edward‘s One Little Word project, I delighted in the idea.  The practice has become an annual tradition for me, my family, and much of the Creativity Tribe. It is an important part of my work as a Life Coach and Sacred Creativity Guide.

Choosing My One Little Word

In years past, my one word for the year has come to me in various ways.  It isn’t uncommon for it to come to me weeks before the end of the year.  This year, the days ticked away and nothing felt right.  Finally, on the night before New Year’s Eve, I felt my mind playing with a new idea.

I realized there were a few thing in my life that I felt were important to having a healthy, enjoyable human experience that I just wasn’t doing.  If pressed to answer why, I wouldn’t easily be able to say, but I could feel something was holding me back from my best life.  I could also feel certain limiting beliefs that were ready to be challenged.  I wanted the shifting of these blocks to be the focus of the year.  Wouldn’t life feel so much more free if they were!?

One Little Word to Create Great Shift

I played with various words…. elevate, radiate, shift….then I felt transcendence.  I was laying in bed, in the dark.  The letters were swirling around with the sounds in my imagination, and transcendence became… trance-n-dance. I thought it was funny.  I welcomed the new perspective.  That shift is what I was asking for.

What does trance-n-dance mean to me?

One week in mid-November a friend, Phyllis Lejeune, came to stay with us.  Phyllis is affectionately referred to by a few dear friends as a Cajun Mystic.  She is funny, a wonderful storyteller, sage, and artist of life.  She also facilitates Trance Dance.

My mind drifted to the first moments of the Trance Dance ceremony with Phyllis.

I am blindfolded.  I know where I am but can no longer see my surroundings.  Others are around me, also blindfolded.  I have just breathed my intention into the bandana which is now shutting out the light.  The music begins to offer a beat, and Phyllis tells us to remain seated until our bones call us into movement.  I wait.  Then the bones begin to move.  I am journeying in the dark, body moving: twitching, swaying, bouncing, writhing, releasing, inviting, crying, laughing, living.  And then silence, stillness, ….and yes, transcendence.

Sometimes life feels like this.  Moving blindly in the dark with just an intention and my bones to get me through to the other side. This is the essence of intentional living.  And if I am lucky, I discover something about the self and existence along the way.

So this is my practice for 2016….explore transcendence as trance-n-dance.  Yes, I will be dancing blindfolded on occasion. I will also be exploring the more existential, symbolic dance in the dark, the LIFE dance of sacred creativity….with only my inner light to guide me.
