Every morning I have been spending time checking in with myself. I'm making a habit of noticing my thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and any dreams I had the night before. This isn't a very involved process, though it can be and sometimes my check in's point me towards a deeper inquiry, for which I have plenty more tools and time set aside throughout the week. But generally, it only takes a few minutes of time, well invested. I will be teaching all of this in my retreat, Croí: The Art of Receiving, by the way, details of which you can find via bio. I make this practice a priority now, everyday. It only takes a few minutes to turn inward, notice and to set an intentional action for the day in honour of what you need. This is a practice and it is also, a process; as is the acquiring of any new behaviour. One of the prompts from #RAWe is to write up permission slips for ourselves. I wasn't expecting for my own prompt to fit so well into this morning routine. This permission slip was a direct response to something that my mind was trying to control and hence was holding me in a fearful state and leaving my body, as usual, to take the hit of being the asshole responsible for it all and hence, vulnerable to mistreatment. All of which I could have carried and been influenced by all day, had I not checked in with myself. It doesn't mean I get to be perfect, pilgrim. But it does mean I get to be informed. What might you be carrying that needs permission to be ok? #Permission #CreativeRecovery #MorningPages #ArtIsMagicOnline #ArtistsWay #BeNourished #bodytrust #bodytrustisyourbirthright #WeAreTheLuckiest #WeDoRecover #Recovery #theunruffledpod #LoveSober #TellBetterStories #YourStoryMatters
I’ve been cross stitching every day for @herinternest ’s #ouryearofcrafts . ✂️ And... I’ve finished my storytime sampler!!! Can you believe it?!? ☺️ Before I share the final piece I’ve missed posting a couple of vignettes including this one from Harry Potter. It wasn’t part of the original design, but I couldn’t leave Hogwarts out could I? ✨ #kindlecuriosity

Starting my days with #MorningPages in my journal for the last few weeks thanks to @nicopadden who invited me to do The Artist's Way with her. It's been a really nice way to start the day. It feels great to give myself the time and space for a morning ritual that really feeds my soul. #journaling #morning #morningritual #iwokeuplikethis #selfie #artistsway #creativity #selfcare

My wondrous colleagues from The Mirror Visions Ensemble came all the way to Luzern to visit and to start work on our new concert program "This Land is Ours" (performance dates available on my website, link in profile) . .

So, I’m going to start doing this thing, I don’t know if anyone else has a mind that goes a million miles an hour all the time but I sure do. Sometimes it’s really helpful but sometimes it’s really not. I overthink and have a hard time explaining things and communication in general can be a bitch. So a friend suggested this and I’m going to try it. Any other suggestions on what helps you quiet your mind (other than drugs or alcohol-too many side effects) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!! #wonderfixx #dryjan #adhd #nomeds #holistic #meditation #recovery #refugerecovery #sober #morningpages #challenge #juliannehough #sorryforallthehashtagsbutineedsomedamnhelp #artistsway
"When I say be creative, I don't mean that you should all go and become great painters and great poets. I simply mean let your life be a painting, let your life be a poem. Creativity is the greatest form of rebellion in existence." ~ Osho My friends, I hope all of us have a chance to experience creativity today! #oshoquotes #artistquotes #creativity #artistsway #inspirationalquotes #spiritualquotes
Early birthday present to me💛💛January 1, 2019 I fully committed to morning pages, having already filled a notebook full of thoughts, I got myself something a little extra special embodying this creative transformation❣️ ☀️my morning thoughts... my messy thoughts, dark toxins, and creative light..☯️ I just start writing...

動物たちを見ていて思うことがある。 それは、彼らがいつも自分の心に全力であること。 うちの猫たちは、人が台所に行くと、ゴハンではなくもっと美味しいおやつを必ず期待して走ってくる。 それが貰える確率は低いのだけれど、何度空振りしても、自分が大好きなもののために、全力を惜しまない。 甘える時だって、拒絶されたらどうしようなんて、考えたりはしない。 ただ全力で走ってきて、体を擦り付け、自分からお腹を見せて、愛されることを先んじて用意している。 また、残念なことではあるけれど、まえに動物虐待のニュースを見ていた時、飼い主にひどい扱いを受けながらも、その犬は全身全霊で愛を飼い主に求め続けて足掻き続けていたように見えた ひどい仕打ちを受けながら、でも。 では、私たちはどうなのだろう。 そう、心が問いかけた。 僕の周りの多くの人が、子供の時に凄惨な経験をして、生きづらさを抱えて生き、 そして何かの機に、人生について真剣に学び始めた。 「ライトワーカー」という概念あり、たとえそれがどのような目的の概念であれ、今一握りかそれ以上の人々が、自ら恐れより愛から人生を選択し、そしてその過程で、自身の最も恐れるものに全身全霊で飛び込む。 そしていち早く、恐怖に実体はないと知り、その行為を、生涯を通して拡大させ、 自分から他者へ、愛を広げていく。 全ての出来事や存在に意義があるとしたら、動物たちは、私たち人間に何を見せ、学ばせてくれているのだろうか。 夢にまで見た映像の仕事で面談にこぎつけ、緊張で目が覚めた朝、ただ素直に、答えをわかっていながら、それでも少しの、いや、もしかしたら大きな恐れから、こんな答えのわかりきった問答が、頭をよぎりました😅 「めいいっぱい最高を期待して生きようよ❣️」 って言ってくれているのかな😇 #yolo #tflers #写真部 #いいね #filterra #follow #photo #canon #werble #instapic #カメラ部 #フォロー #aperture #followme #instacool #artistdate #フォロワー #instaphoto #artistsway #tagforlikes #photograph #フォローミー #photography #followalways #photographer #photooftheday #レンズ越しの私の世界 #写真好きな人と繋がりたい #ずっとやりたかったことをやりなさい

Then came the afternoon storm... a sunset of booming thunder, an electric sky, and a few plump rain drops. I can see why the young painter from NSW I met a few days ago moved here to paint ‘scapes. After studying at uni with a specialty in watercolor, she’s switched to oils. Using the discipline she learned in that hard to fix genre to not overwork (or muddy) her colors. #tipsforlife #writingabook #sky #stormclouds #light #inspiration #wisdom #patience #artistsway #breathe #followthelight

Week 3 of The Artists Way course. This is my first time going through Julia Cameron‘s material and it is beautiful. Already I am seeing places where unhealthy patterns of thinking have kept me blocked and how my blocked self was easier to justify than actually pushing forward into successes. Funny how a person who helps others get unstuck was pretty stuck. “Physician heal thyself!” The daily pages i.e. writing every day (morning or evenings) has been a great discipline to re-practice. I’ve already seen some more developed thinking in my writing, even in my approach to teaching and preparing my lectures. I am an artist. Words and ideas paint the canvas of my work. I am created for using my voice to help make a shift in ways people and organizations think about things. I create movement in people’s lives so they will be inspired to flourish. #unleash #iamanartist #wordsmatter #ideasflourish #flourish #artistsway #getunstuck #oneword365 #write #create #showyourwork #createmovement #coach #leadershipcoaching #cultivatewhatmatters
Have you ever thought about why the feminine became repressed, suppressed, oppressed, and the idea that it may not have always been that way, that in fact, God/Love/Cosmos/Creative Source was the feminine, too, at some point, and that that super power had to be boxed away in order for the masculine to tip the scales... It would not so clearly be a patriarchal society if there had not been a fight to block something incredibly powerful...right? We need balance, people! ;) #whengodwasawoman #merlinstone #godasawoman #arianagrande #artemis #warrior #integration #mother #marypickford #storytelling #creativity #art #popularculture #rise #motivate #rally #revolution #ChooseLove #wellnessthatworks #artistsway #morningpages #movement #tuesday #rain #cleanse #glory #hollywood #holyland #unitedartists #lawofnature
40 DAYS OF CREATIVITY: Simply put, we are all either creating or destroying in this game called life. In a technological world of great pressure and stress, consistent creativity is a beautiful rebellion. In my own experience, I’m ready to use the momentum of this new year to commit to creativity through writing, every day, for 40 days. Where are you hungry to create? In the kitchen? On the piano? On an easel? With your camera? We begin a community-wide challenge of 40 days of consistent creativity this Monday, January 21st. Learn more at the link in my bio and stay tuned for Instagram updates + stories. If you are joining, leave a note below on what creative project you’ll be working on through the 40 days. #wanderwell #40daysofcreativity .40 DAYS OF CREATIVITY:
🖤 “I have been one acquainted with the night. I have walked out in rain—and back in rain. I have outwalked the furthest city light. 🖤 . 🖤I have looked down the saddest city lane. I have passed by the watchman on his beat And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain. 🖤 . 🖤I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet When far away an interrupted cry Came over houses from another street, 🖤 . 🖤But not to call me back or say good-bye; and further still at an unearthly height, one luminary clock against the sky 🖤 . 🖤Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.

One of my goals for 2019 is to get back into #theartistsway #artistsway #morningpages . I did it for part of 2018 and I found it such an interesting exercise, because you never know what's going to come out of the pen. It almost functions as free therapy without ever leaving the house. I'd highly recommend it to any #creative person, including #writers . . For people who have done morning pages, how do you fit it in your schedule? She says to do it first thing, before anything else, but I have kids and find that really difficult because they generally wake me up or require attention first thing. I've been trying to do it first thing after they leave for school. What works best? . #hopewriterlife @hopewriters #writersofinstagram #writersofinsta #writingcommunityofinstagram #writerscommunity #novelwriting #fictionauthor #fictionwriter #fictionwriting #indieauthor #indieauthors #indieauthorsofinstagram #amwriting #amwritingfiction

This painting is intentioned to be a working canvas. Something to stare at, pick at, add to and paint over. For a year, the golden drips reminded me to let life flow regardless if I knew the plan. And, it did some incredible healing when I needed things to feel repaired inside of my soul. . . . Just like life. It’s time to paint the canvas once again. We grow & transform & are ready to move on. We wake up, and sometimes we are just ready for a change: a new way of being, and a desire for a new energy to flow through. . . . Maybe it’s a small shift: just a new notebook or a new soft & cozy sweater. Or maybe it’s more magical: the discovery and overwhelming curiosity about an avant-garde artist, an inspiring human or a true connection with a friend. May we continue to #create things just because that’s what #humans do. . . . . #hyggemyhome #hygge #art #artistsoninstagram #healing #writer #creativity #artyogaplay #paint #makebeautiful #artistsway #flow #color #mixedmedia #discovery #dorothyhoodmademe

Do you have a morning practice? This photo was going to be a carefully composed Instagram shot of a blank journal page a pen and a warm fire about using this morning writing practice as a tool to prepare for my appearance as a guest on a new podcast to talk about interviewing. Then Trooper slipped in, along with a half chewed empty rice container he nabbed from a cupboard inadvertently left unlocked. I realize the best morning practice is one that makes itself mandatory. I’m not up at 5:30 because I have a uniquely strong will, I’m up at 5:30 because I have no choice. The kids have to get to the bus. But I love that early morning time. I’m not out at the river every morning feeding my very soul with the sight, sound, feel and smell of nature because I am uniquely motivated. I’m there because the dog’s got business to do. The morning practice of writing puts my day on a firm foundation. The trick is to make in mandatory. . . #morningpractice #morningritual #artistsway #morningpages #creativity #interviewlessons

⚜️ 🍃Confession🍃 ⠀⠀ This may come as a shock to most of you but I am not super organized! 🤷🏻‍♀️ #thestruggleisreal That being said, I have lots of journals, apps, planners, organizers, everywhere. Can you relate?🙋🏻‍♀️ Some have worked for me and some have not. If an organizer or planner is cumbersome and huge and overwhelming, forget it. I bought it but I didn’t do it. But if something is concise and creative I tend to stick with it more. Writing (pen to paper) things down, for me, is a must. I also keep lots in my phone, mostly scheduling and notes, not productivity. ⠀⠀ Here are a few things that have worked for me: 🍃#5secondjournal @melrobbinslive 🍃Gratitude journal @oolalife 🍃Blank notebooks. ❤️📚 for #morningpages #artistsway @juliacameronlive 🍃#bulletjournal @bulletjournal 🍃Desktop calendar @inkwellpress 🍃Google calendar app ⠀⠀ What are your favorites?
"Be very careful to safeguard your newly recovering artist." I struggle a lot with this whole paragraph because I do value helping others (and I also think ladies are raised to put others' needs before their own). 🎹🎹🎹 But what do y'all think about this paragraph? How does it resonate with you?

Heading out after a week of writing, for a week of tour with @dustbowlrevival 🍿 . I did a lot of introspection in 2018, a lot. And I dove into myself as the only answer, for the first time in my life. (new artists way, standing up for myself (clear communication), filling up my worthiness, no fixing. Just following joy and holding space and setting boundaries) . I 👏 feel 👏 unstoppable 🙌 . We’re en route to WA, AK and Vancouver, then shortly thereafter were on the mid Atlantic East Coast. ❄️ Come Play, I’ll tell you all about it. . Also, i just found out I’m a 9, wing 8 on the #enneagram . ❤️🥂👊 . 📸: @gingercakes802
“Interpret all situations and relationships as having symbolic importance, even if you cannot immediately understand what it is.” - Caroline Myss, PhD, Anatomy of the Spirit . Yesterday, I posted a shared quote in my #nourishyourwholeself Facebook group page that was saying rather than come from the perspective of “why is this happening to me?” to turn it around and ask, “what is this trying to teach me?” . Going into the symbolic can take us out of the pain of the events. It can give us healthy distance and even a #creative way to peer into what is happening. . This is why art is so important for healing. Art accesses the deep recess of the invisible and makes it visible, through shapes, sound, color, form, dance. No words are needed with the symbolic. Only the timelessness of how our inner self needs to express. . As Caroline Myss has said, “The symbolic is the terrain of the soul.” And I would add on that our creativity can take us there...

I’m drawn to mountains. The creative process is like climbing a mountain with it feeling easy at first and getting harder and harder with each incline. But the vistas are ultimately more rewarding than can be put in words.

ITS MONDAY...first of all release yourself from pressure and expectation. Do what you can and don’t let the horrible sense of trying to achieve poison unique creativity. Creativity seems to often come gently and in unexpected forms. - this is what I am saying to myself as I make this face and throw myself out there. #smallbusiness
Check-In Week 6 of #TheArtist ’sWay, I am tuning into a greater understanding of the word abundance and it feels natural to do so . . Here are the Top 7 lessons that I am taking with me at this time from @juliacameronlive Julia Cameron shares — 1. Listening to the siren song of more, we are deaf to the still small voice waiting in our soul to whisper, “You’re enough.” 2. We cling to our financial concerns as a way to avoid not only our art but also our spiritual growth. 3. What would a nontoxic god think of your creative goals? Might such a god really exist? If so, would money or your job or your lover remain your higher power? 4. Looking at God’s creation, it is pretty clear that the creator itself did not know when to stop. 5. Creativity is not and never has been sensible. Why should it be? Why should you be? 6. Making art begins with making hay while the sun shines. It begins with getting into the now and enjoying your day. It begins with giving yourself some small treats and breaks. 7. Creativity lives in paradox : serious art is born from serious play . . #juliacameron #week6 #check -in #artistsway #senseofabundance #recovery #god #supply #artist #creativity #love #selfhelp #course #12weeks #morningpages #artistdates #tasks #prosperity #unlimitedsupply #abundance

Nearing the end of Week 7 in the Artist's Way. One of the exercises was to write this phrase down, in the hopes that seeing it often will stick in your head. I've spent so much of my life caring for others, and even objects, that I've neglected my own passions. The Artist's Way has so far been an effective (but scary) journey into recovering who I once was. Join me as I discover who I was and where I am going.
Instead of Artist’s Way and morning pages, this year I’m starting a new ritual: day book. It’s a place to practice recording observations, images, encounters, beautiful things. It’s making me realize how intentional I must be about attuning to my own experiences. As artist Anne Truitt writes in her Daybook, “...I have to stay ‘turned on’ all the time, to keep my receptivity to what is around me totally open. Preconception is fatal to this process. Vulnerability is implicit in it; pain, inevitable.” 💛k

SUNDAY WALK ll around the neighborhood. Just me, my Nikon and my little Kiki (🐈). The first of many weekly "artist dates" with myself which I intend to honor this winter. And hopefully, beyond. But one day at a time. . The dates are to spark creativity and remind myself how to play, without agenda or purpose. Just play. Or paint. Or draw. Or dance. Or whatever else will get me off the computer, out of social media, and unlocking my imagination. . All part of The Artist's Way 12-week journey I am finally embracing, as so many others I admire have done before me. So far, in just a week, I can feel the ice breaking. . Have you ever used The Artist's Way to break through barriers and unlock your creativity? Tell me how it made an impact... I'd love to know!
