Today is the waxing quarter moon.
As the moon's light increases, you might notice your energy increase.
This is a great time to focus on a project you are motivated to complete, as you move towards the full moon.
Here are today's waxing moon reflection questions to help you discover what is needed next on your creative journey:
One supportive way to answer these questions is to set a timer for 2 - 5 minutes and flow write. Allow whatever wants to come out to...
Every couple weeks my amazing friend, Caitlin Bosshart, and I publish an episode of Full Heart Free Voice Podcast, where we talk about inspiring books, one chapter at a time.
This week we published an episode I think you'll enjoy called How to Nourish Your Creative Life. This is our Book Club episode, where we discuss chapter 10 of Women Who Run With the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, "Clear Water: Nourishing the creative life".
This episode is for you if...
I picked an animal card for us today, and we got Nightingale!
"This card indicates a need to open the bridge between the heart and the voice."
- Kim Krans, The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit Oracle
Nightingale is all about lifting your voice, singing out, and allowing yourself to be heard.
Have you been having trouble sharing your writing? Does it feel like something is clogged between your heart and your voice?
Today, I have a guided visualization to help you strengthen the...
Today is the New Moon. This is the time when the moon is smallest in the sky. It provides us with the darkest nights and the best view of the stars. It is also the beginning of a new moon cycle.
When you create with the lunar cycle, the New Moon is a time when your creative energy might be low but also beginning to make a turn towards creating again. This is a time to contemplate what wants to be done next.
Here are today's New Moon...
Today is the Waning Quarter Moon, the halfway mark between the full and new moons. It is a time when the moon is descending into its dark period. This is a time for reflection, to ask what needs to be released, and to allow for surrender and flow.
Here are today's Waning Quarter Moon Reflection questions to help you notice how you feel and discover what's next for you during this phase of your creativity.
One supportive way to answer these questions is to...
Today is the day before the Waning Quarter Moon. This is a time to start turning inwards, to feel the beat of your heart, to allow yourself to experience, as Clarissa Pinkola Estes calls it, "the river beneath the river".
I recently found a podcast that is helping me do just this.
Track Your Life with Boyd Varty is a series of journal entries describing 40 days and 40 nights Varty spent alone in the wilderness this year.
His calming voice and descriptions of tracking rhinos and...
How are you doing? What have you been learning? What have you been seeing and sensing?
I've been watching a lot of Star Trek lately, rewatching old episodes and finding my imagination in space again.
You know what I really love? The stars. The night sky. The moon. The planets. I have always loved astronomy, but it's only until very recently, like the past couple months, that I've learned about astrology.
I did an online conference where Theresa Reed, @thetarotlady, was a guest...
Why not take the leap?
Why not go somewhere you've never gone with your creativity?
Why not feel what it's like to accomplish the thing you've wanted for so long?
Why not explore the wilds of your own creativity, the places you have yet to go with your heart and soul?
Why not confront the demons that stop you?
In this wild, crazy time of the Pandemic and staying in one place, the greatest place to explore is the vast realm of your creative spirit.
Imagine waking up tomorrow having...
Do you ever find your self wondering why you can't just do this already?
Why can't you just write and hit publish?
Everyone else seems to be doing it, and they seem to be doing well with all their followers, too.
But for you, something else is going on, and it's frustrating as hell.
The truth is our society is full of the expectations that you just do things already.
Just exercise already. Just lose weight already. Just make a million dollars. Just be massively successful at your...
Writing my first blog post was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life.
I wrote my first post seven years ago, and up until that point, writing had always been on the periphery for me. Yes, I loved literature and was a devoted English major.
Sure, now and again a story would fly through me, get recorded on a Word Doc, and end up lost somewhere on my computer.
And, yeah, my bosses always complimented me on my ability to write a clear email.
But writing, like the kind of...
