I totally hear ya! The creative process is a very squiggly line with curves and ups and downs and back arounds. The voices in our heads can encourage us or deflate us.
In the beginning there is excitement and enthusiasm, great joy, and lots of bubbly energy. Then shortly into manifesting the first steps of the idea, it’s like the gas is spitting and sputtering, trying to chug along, or going up a steep hill but rolling backwards. This is an incredible and powerful place to be really.
You are aware of what’s happening. That’s huge! Self-awareness is a necessary ingredient in the manifestation process.
Start from the beginning. Be with your idea. Vision it in your mind’s eye. Feel it in your heart and spirit as though it is already here. How does it feel? Do you feel light, excited, and happy? What beliefs and thoughts come up for you about it?
If not, your idea may need adjusting, tweaking. The dreams and desires that we really connect with and are aligned with are the ones we can take forward most easily.
Ask yourself, is this something that you really want, or is it something that someone else can see for you or wants for you? Challenge any heavy, self-sabotaging beliefs that come up. They are not of the highest vibration. Write them down on a piece of paper. Thank them for showing up. Say a prayer for each of them. Release them and let them go. Perhaps by burning each in a sacred bowl or outdoors in a fire.
Imagine yourself in this fully created manifestation. Is this the fit and feeling you were looking for?
If this vision is truly yours to create, take some time with paper and pen to draw or write out the steps that you can see that need to be completed. No need to put it all in order yet. Just free flow and brainstorm. Let this part be easy and non-judgmental. Pick apart each of those. Noting down every piece of it, the tools you’ll need, the people who could help. Details.
Now sort out those pieces into what seems like a beginning, middle, and end. Do you see more details that need to be added?
You’re on your way to creating your heart’s desire. Allow this to be a fun, easy, gentle, and creative process. Check in with yourself often along the way making sure you’re still feeling light and connected each step of the way. Allow the vision you have in mind to call you and pull you into itself.
Keep going. Happy Creating!!
