From Self Centered to Inspiration

Communing with my Creative Energy

The word self-centered has such a negative connotation to it. We have been taught to be giving and generous, to think of others before ourselves. Society has made us feel if we spend to much time on ourselves we are being selfish.

And yet read it again - SELF Centered!

Is it not important for us to be centered in our self to create with intention and inspiration. And how can we give sincerely to anyone or anything if we aren't fulfilled ourselves?

So what does being self centered really mean and what does it have to do with inspiration and inspired action? And what does it look like?

This kind of self-centered means healthy self-care. It means making sure you are feeling good every day - physically, emotionally and spiritually. You need to do whatever it is that is going to give you this balance. This is your life!

For me this means I need to make sure I build in time every day for my meditation. I also need to be creative on a regular basis. For me this means writing, painting and drawing. It also means I have to keep up with my exercise routine. I have to take time to go for a run about 2-3 times a week, or else my brain gets sluggish. Maybe I have a slow blood flow, I don't know, but what I do know is aerobic activity is what works for me. And especially after the age of 45, I noticed how quickly my body responded to the lack of exercise! I'm sure I am not alone here. But... if I am short on time, I choose my meditation first.

No one knows better how important it is to make your own self-care a priority, than someone who has been diagnosed with a life-altering or life-threatening illness. Don't wait for that - take care of you now!

What replenishes you? What makes your heart say, "Yes! This feels so good! I need more of this in my life!"

Now be brave! It takes a lot of courage to make yourself the priority in your life. You need to put yourself first, ahead of your kids, spouse, pets, extended family and your work. You need to ignore what others say about you. And you need to learn how to say NO to others. (Or put them off, until it works with your schedule - take control!) You need to mentally shut everything else off and take the time for you.

Learning to meditate will be a skill you will never regret. And taking 15 minutes every day to practice this will begin your journey of replenishing your soul. (At the end I will attach a link to get my meditation for free. I have been using it for about 25 years and it is very powerful for accomplishing the connection to your Creative Energy.)

Be completely and utterly selfish in these moments - don't let anyone intrude! Fill yourself up for your day!

You sleep to replenish your physical body so why would we not want to replenish our inner self, soothe our emotions and connect to your soul?

You will find on the days you complete your meditation, you will have so much more to give to everyone and everything else. You will feel calmer AND you will be opening the gates for inspiration! Yay!

More and more creative ideas will come to you, during meditations and/or throughout the day when you least expect it. You have opened the gates to more...more answers to problems, new ideas and new creations.

So tomorrow begin with you and make time to commune with your Creative Energy!

And watch for the painting that came from this drawing - I will post it soon!

Happy Creating!

What is this Creation Guild thing?

Staying Creatively Inspired

Every day a greater number of people are recognizing there is a much more to creating our life than just floating down the river, hoping opportunities and luck will be on your journey. As awareness begins to emerge to a new level there is increased need for guidance, from those further on the path, to help others build the life of their dreams.

Life does not have to be a struggle! And you can be have inspired creativity every day, creating the life you desire.

We are all creators working on great masterpieces in our lives. Whatever it is for each of us; career goals, fitness/health goals, artistic or musical creations, a new car, the love of your life.… whatever you aspire to, having an open flow with your Creative Energy Source heralds inspired and genius work. Here you find a great power available to everyone, and when we consciously align and work with this flow we discover many subtle nuances that can either block or enhance this available power. Tapping into the continuous flow of your Creative Energy Source allows you to become the wholly aware architect who builds foundations for the full, rich beauty of your masterpieces to emerge.

Perhaps you have already felt this inspiration and power move through your life.

Then you already know how elusive it can feel.

It appears suddenly one day and you feel like you are on top of the world, glowing with excitement and anticipation, only to find it dissipates without warning, leaving you in stagnant holes feeling doubt or weakness, or perhaps even monotony or boredom with your life. You may feel frustrated because it comes and goes so unpredictably.

Learning from those of us who have been working with this energy for many years can save you frustration and help you grow quicker than fumbling through this alone. It is time for everyone to align with this energy.

What exactly is this surge of power and how can you continuously bask in It?

What is the connection of this flow to the creations or manifestations in your life?

The Creation Guild is my book that walks you through the basic steps of intentionally connecting with your Creative Energy Source, feeling it and using it to inspire your creations and build a life of your dreams. With it you learn how to develop your awareness of all the essential tiny tweaks that refine and enhance your connection, tapping deeper into this powerful Creative Energy Source.

The Creation Guild blog (a continuation of the book) where I will share my journey with you - how I try to help myself stay connected to this Creative Energy Source daily. My blog will be authentic and real, showing you that every day is a new day that deserves your focus and intention to stay in this flow, creating not only my art, but my life. I don't always nail it, and you won't either, however communicating helps everyone.

I learned to quiet my mind, ask the right questions and then listen. Through silence the learning came to me, but it took many months and years of working it out to understand how delicate this energy can be and I learned the fine distinctions for creating.

Now it is not difficult to do this, in fact the steps are fairly simple. However you need to be a dedicated learner and it is immensely easier with some coaching from someone who has persevered through it.

As a professional teacher I present the steps in easy language to reveal these subtle energetic layers, and set you on your way to having a clear and instantly accessible connection with your Creative Energy Source. In my book you hear my own authentic accounts of blocked, stagnant days of struggle, and how I learned to catapult myself forward advancing to new levels of inspiration and manifesting. And the journey continues!

I love life, everyday! Even the 'bad' days 🙂
Being connected with The Creation Guild can help you learn how to soar with inspired creations!

I invite you to come along with me as we build the community of The Creation Guild, for the time has come for all of us to leave the struggle behind and learn how to refine the craft of manifesting the life of our dreams through the flow of our Creative Energy Source.

Talk soon,
Janice
