Nurture The Thinking Mind

There are many ideas and flashes of thought that fly around in our minds every minute. I am reminded of The Wizard of Oz movie, where Dorothy is whisked around and around and up into the air by the hurricane. Ideas whirl around our heads in much the same way. We get caught up in […]

Make Creating A Daily Habit And Love Your Fear

Aristotle said: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.” Creating really does need to be baked in to who you are. Your day should comprise a routine that includes creative endeavor. Daily routines and habits sustain us in turbulent times. Maintaining course through the storm. These are […]

Find Your Voice Creator

Sunday morning relaxing with my journal. Rested, body aching from only my second gym session since the COVID-19 Lockdown. Life as we know shifted in directions no one could have ever predicted since the outbreak of the global pandemic early 2020. I have spent my weekend so far learning more about cinematic lighting and the […]

Start Your Creator Journey Today

I was journaling today about how society can transform from a place of haves and have nots to a place where needs are met more widely and more freely. My brother needs this, here it is. My sister needs that, and she has it. How wonderful it would be if we could eliminate selfishness and […]

Unashamedly, unapologetically. You! Life requires nothing more of you than this. Your challenge is to learn and experience how to do this, how to be yourself. When you explore yourself in this way, you unlock untold richness. Exciting possibilities and opportunities beyond your wildest imaginings will present themselves to you. All of this happens when […]

Choose Love, Not Fear

Been for a run and had longer in meditation. Trying to get to grips with what is holding me back and stopping me from getting back into the video creation Zone I was in before my holiday. I am stuck and unable to create. Paralysed by my mind-created fear of success and failure. What will […]

Create Every Day

These past few weeks I’ve been playing with my cameras and mic setups (more than usual), learning to edit by editing more, changing cameras, playing with different video ideas. It has been frustrating, and also a lot of fun. Creating regular content is now beginning to feel empowering rather than daunting. Creating content makes you […]

Create Success Habits

Habits and routines are the building blocks of a solid foundation of our being. When positive habits and routines are in place and ticking nicely, we can achieve outstanding things. But what are they? Habit = “An acquired mode of behavior that has become nearly or completely involuntary” (Merriam-Webster). Routine = “Habitual or mechanical performance […]

Start Your Creator Journey

Capturing thoughts, ideas, musings, warts and all is key to being more productive creatively. Right brain. Processing those thoughts takes left brain, analytical thinking. Logic, processing, editing, re-drafting. Bringing order and structure to the creative chaos. Enjoy the messiness of creativity, the anarchy and chaos, that’s where the fun is in all of this. Keep […]

Embrace The Natural Flow of Life

Don’t fight against the current. The natural flow of life. Embrace it and enjoy it. If we allow ourselves to be trapped in thought then the natural flow feels the opposite of natural. Our thoughts conspire against us, sometimes with a whisper, sometimes with a shout. The cunning internal voice can raise up the dragon […]

Thank You

Yesterday I felt empowered to continue my writing journey and share my experiences with the world. I felt a surge of energy as I finally captured some thoughts in to Ulysses (the writing app I use). What a great feeling it is to take control over your own destiny and situation - to not be […]

Create Now, and Now, and Now...

Being in the present moment is such a challenge. I set an intention to be here, now, and yet my mind is off worrying itself with what I said or didn't say yesterday, or anticipating something that may or may not happen tomorrow. Past and future are where we spend most of our time. What […]

Create For Others

Ever have that butterflies feeling in your stomach? I have it most days. It feels like two dozen butterflies are fluttering away in the pit of my belly. I try to sit with the feeling and observe it without judgement. When I do it swells and grows, the feeling intensifies. Anxiety, fear, worry, doubt, these […]

Care for Your Future Self

I remember watching an episode of the Simpsons where Homer is facing a critical issue. He cracks open a can of Duff beer and gets drunk instead of dealing with the issue; he kicks back and says: “That's a problem for future Homer! Man, I don't envy that guy!” Pushing through bad habits and stale […]

Spirituality

Exploring the concepts of energy and spirituality creates a wonderful impact that transforms our very existence. Speaking to and listening to the hearts of others, to the soul, is something that cannot be found in 'things'. I cannot explain it with words. It is ‘felt’. We spend our entire lives trying to find, although we […]

Connectedness and Creativity

Connectedness and grounding are the keys to unlocking limitless creativity. From here we can create exponentially more than with our striving alone. For when we strive alone, we are a droplet of water trying to make its way back up a waterfall. When we co-create with divine intelligence, we form part of the boundless flow […]
