Creativity & Surrender

Consider both creativity & health not as end results, but rather as journeys of surrendering old ways of life to the new. The art is in pinpointing what we are ready, willing & able to surrender, and to surrender this to something bigger/greater, something that truly fills our cup and lights us up! THIS is how we engage true power to guide and support us to create and heal.


 Creativity is not a talent. It is a way of operating.  – John Cleese


“The truth will set you free.” It sets others free too. Bringing truth to the surface heals ourselves and our planet.  Yet, honesty with one’s self (allowing ourself to be both light & dark, accepting imperfections) is a difficult thing, if not impossible when ego is in the grip of control. 


Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.


Anything created from untruth eventually fails. However, fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) is often so subtle that we don’t realize when we’re in it and creating from it. Our culture perpetuates fear-based addictions consciously and unconsciously, helping us numb ourselves to reality.


To live a creative life, we must let go of our fear of being wrong.


Sometimes we just have to surrender, allowing our heart to lead instead of our mind, and see what happens, because our heart can face the UNKNOWN with infinitely more wisdom than our mind ever can. Pausing to look within, to FEEL and do a little digging, is essential for finding and creating what is most aligned with integrity, compassion and MAGIC!




Ask yourself:

“What is it that I can or must let go of NOW?” 

“What is it that is no longer tolerable or sustainable?”

“What of the old must I now surrender to make way for the new?”

“What needs to die in me so I can radiate greater health & creativity?”


 Jeff Tinker - Bald Cypress



World changes are now so rapid that linear goal setting may not be sustainable.  In fact, goal setting can at times disconnect you from yourself!  When you get wrapped up in THE PLAN you actually hold yourself and your business back.

Riding through waves of change, learning to go with the flow of greater creativity unfolding demands a lightly-built  framework and visionary approach, where goals become something to discover along the way while following your vision, rather than something to initially choose/set.

A visionary approach requires consistently cultivating an holistic picture (where I live, what I do, what I make, how I give back, who I spend time with) with more frequent clarifications. Otherwise your life/work may take form in reaction to exterior forces.

To be effective, your vision must be inspired from a deeper place: who you are at your essence, aligned with who you feel called to be and what you are called to do. Your vision must connect to a deeply felt desire for its fulfillment.

Starting with a vision creates a magnetic force that supports your efforts and will show you the steps that lead to its manifestation.  Your vision is magical indeed, and will create your goals for you!

Your Turn:

ASK for your highest vision; Continuously CLARIFY it;  FOCUS on its potential; and learn to LISTEN to it; ALLOW it to show you the way.  Only then can you rest assured you’ve put all that you have into obtaining that which you most desire… 

Voilà Evolution!
