Lately, I’ve been hearing from a lot of clients and students that they feel tired of their lives. This isn’t surprising, as we’ve all been in a big energetic cycle of releasing the past for a long while now. Releasing the old is always a good practice, as it helps us move into the new. But a problem that comes along with this process is not always knowing exactly what new thing you want to move into in the future.
Most of us would love to move into a new life full of freedom and creativity. We want to finally start (or finish) the book we’ve been dreaming of releasing into the world for so long, or we want to paint, draw, make music, or create something else of beauty in order to share it with a wider audience.
However, once we start thinking about making these creative dreams come true, we instantly feel afraid, even terrified.
Why is this?
Well, because the moment we think about creating something and putting it out there, we also realize we’re jumping into the unknown. That kind of intense uncertainty brings on an attack of doubt and fear, and it be very hard to move past it and keep our creative mojo going.
But there is one small (and relatively easy) mindset shift you can make immediately that goes a long way toward getting you past this hurdle. I talk more about it in the video below:
I’m teaching a new workshop called Fear & Creativity and it’s happening this Saturday, Aug 5. We’re going to be learning all about WHY fear strikes when we try to follow a creative life and HOW to get past it.
This workshop is only $25 and registration is now open. You can find out all the details and register here:
I only do these lower-priced workshops once in a while, so if you’re interested in this one, don’t delay in signing up as I don’t know when I’ll do one again. If you can’t make it live you’ll get the recording, and you’ll have lifetime access to that, so you can access the replay any time that works for you.
Please also make sure you SUBSCRIBE to my newsletter HERE to get updates and notifications on future classes, and SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel HERE to get more videos on intuition, creativity, and writing. You can contact me here with any questions about this workshop or other classes and courses.
I think this is going to be a great workshop, and really fun. I hope I see you there!
