It is the Autumnal Equinox, officially at 1:20 CST today.
This is a time of balance. It is also a time of letting go as we move from the warm activity of the summer into the period of hibernation of winter. Our spirit which has been out in the ethers and astral realm, will now begin to recede, to come back into itself. It will bring with it all it has learned, and perhaps more than you desire it to bring.
Don't worry, now is the time to let go of all that is not serving you anymore. I have been working the program of codependency for almost 6 years now, and as it states in the promises, I have seen a miraculous change in my life and my relationship. However, there are some old behaviors I still seem to repeat, almost without knowing. I seek validation from others, especially my partner, when truly it is un-necessary. So I made the decision not to do it any more. How freeing.
Besides being the Fall Equinox, it is also a full moon. So set your intention today to let go of something you no longer need. Let it fall away from you like the leaves falling from the tree. You no longer need it, and as you let go of the old, know that you are making space for something new and wonderful to enter.
We are supposed to be exploring the Astral realm together this month, but somehow that aspect of our Consciousness Explorations programming got lost in the ethers. That seems to happen often with creative ideas if they don't have the right attention.
I have many creative friends and I have shared with them the struggle of getting things done and out into the world. Creativity is such an expansive and elusive thing. Creative ideas come so quickly, like a flash of inspiration, and then can leave us just as quickly if we don't take the effort to anchor them into existence. This is where Inspired Action is so important.
I have had over the past month, dozens of ideas for posts on the website, and yet I have only posted about 5 times. Some of those were just necessary or practical posts, designed to get information out. Maybe 3 of them, including this one, have been more inspired by the realm of ideas.
Having been sick with a nasty cold the past week, I have been isolating at home, and after getting bored with Lifetime movies, I have done a bit of creating. This act of moving an idea from the space of pure consciousness into a physical manifestation or representation of the idea is a powerful process. It feels to me much like the process of channeling, getting out of the way, or "moving aside", as in the way Lee Carroll describes as his process for communicating with Kryon.
What allows us to be able to stand in that space of inspiration, and not just receive these beautiful ideas, but to let them come through us onto the page, or canvas, or out into the world. How can we anchor all of this incredible insight, and learn how to become channels for our highest ideals as they express themselves first in that space of pure potential, in that collective consciousness, in the creative idea space.
So our course Aligning with Your Divine Blueprint has not been such a great success, it has faded off like so many good ideas. The truth is, the idea is still there, it is moving it into action that has faltered. Why did it falter? It didn't have participants to give it energy.
A lot of artists like to say they are just doing their art for themselves, but creativity is more than simple self-expression. Creativity lies in all that we do. We create our lives and the world around us through creativity. I can't imagine something more important in the world than to try to understand the process of creativity and to apply it to our lives and our world to create the world we want to see.
Come and join us on Saturday September 11th, where we can meet this day of destruction with an act of creativity. Come sing with us from 1 to 3PM at the Community House, 2223 N. Sheridan Rd.
Also I will share one of the songs I wrote while sick. It came out whole and complete on the first try, with only one line being altered. Sure it is short and simple, but sometimes those are the best ones.
So here you go!
If I can sing in my cold voice so can you!!! Don't be scared, just sing!
Also just for some context, it has been just over a year I have picked up ukulele, before that I had never touched a ukulele or guitar. Here is a song written about a year ago when I had one month of practice on the Ukulele.
Use this as a reference. See Old Dogs can learn New Tricks. Woof Woof.
You can start to sing and be creative at any age.
