Are you getting out and enjoying summer? I sure hope so! I’ll gather some pictures for you soon of summer 'round these parts.
This week I really want to encourage you to get off the computer and phone as much as humanly possible. I think too much time on electronics sucks away our happiness, so you may not find me posting quite as much right now while it’s actually nice up North here for a while. There is something I want you to pay attention to this summer though, especially as you hopefully have more free time, and that’s creativity. Creativity is born from doing nothing. I think somehow you’re a much better receiver when you’re still and doing nothing. That’s when the universe really has a chance to flow through you and work it’s magic. So my suggestion is this… keep a pad of paper and a pen at your side this summer at all times and let your creativity flow. You can refine it and work it into a masterpiece later. Please don’t worry about anything but letting it flow through you on these slow hot days, and certainly avoid getting all perfectionist about it. Simply allow yourself to daydream, put pen to paper or use whatever your favorite creative medium is, and make sure to take time to imagine your perfect life.
This is a meditation I created awhile ago but it’s perfect for this post, and I have to thank Alison for inspiring me to share it. I’m so excited to hear she’s using this meditation while working on her writing. Go Girl! It’s basically the best thing I could hear because what I want most in this world is to encourage you to use your passions to create. It is the key to living life to the fullest.
Wishing you a beautiful week of sun, flowers, and water! And sending you so much light for dreams come true.
