Entrepreneurs, authors, and others needing to be at the peak of creativity in order to achieve success will enjoy my insights below.
Being a bestselling author, I am part of several author’s groups on Facebook. When I read people discussing how they force themselves to sit down at a certain time and write so many words each day, I think, “WOW, if I had to force myself to write – especially a certain amount of words – then I would definitely not be a writer.”
I love water and I consider creativity very much like water and the ebb and flow like the tide. When the tide is in, it comes with full force and I may do nothing but write, rarely even eating, for days on end. I have literally written a whole book in 2 or 3 days.
Then it ebbs, the tide goes out, the ideas percolate in the background, in the subconscious, out in the Universe somewhere rearranging themselves, weaving with other things, until they come back in on another wave – at which time I may bring in another chapter or two or ten.
That is the way of my writing and all of my creative pursuits – be they books, training programs I’m developing, or marketing materials.
When its time, the words pour forth effortlessly. A second sooner, if I try to force it, the words are both not from the right “place” and not the right words. In Divine timing, and in the perfect number, they come. That is how I write. I invite you to find the courage to do the same with your writing and all creative endeavors.
All of nature has a rhythm:
- The turning of the earth about its axis
- the transformation of night to day back to night again
- the cycles of birth, growth, harvest, death, and rebirth
- the seasons
- a woman’s cycles – when in tune its with the moon
When you get in sync with the earth through time in nature, in quiet inner reflection, in meditation, and align with the Divine, the flow of inspiration comes faster and with much less effort.
The higher you climb in consciousness, the easier goals are to achieve and the less attached you are to them anyway. Ever evolving. Ever growing. Ever changing and transforming into a greater version of self. That is the journey towards the Magnificent U.
Have a deLightful day,
