All of a sudden I am fueled with tremendous amounts of creative energy. It’s been like a force from outside moving through me. I was reminded that now is the time of Bealtaine or Beltane!
Beltane is an ancient sacred ritual and rite of passage marking the cross-quarter point in the year between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. A time of that bubbling up of potency from the land below and showering down from the stars above, culminating in transformative, sexual and creative energy ready to start fertilizing any seeds in need of growth. I wrote about this co-creative energy last year while in Glastonbury.
Healing the creative part of myself has been a big aspect of my journey. From being terrified to pick up a pastel and draw to listening to fragile parts of myself that want to write a book and unknown creative yearnings of my voice that I never would have considered until they appeared.
I’ve started to understand more and more how the nature of creativity isn’t just those “creative arts” that many of us put on a shelf as adults but it is the fabric of life. To create a life means to also nourish the energy of creativity within you. To build trust in your intuition. Your voice. Whatever it may bring forth. Whether it’s how you design your day, energy, meals or contemplating the best outcome or solution at any point in time.
The more you build your creative muscles, the more options you have to choose from and the more possibilities you can imagine. As this grows within you, it is shared out into the collective and others also grow their creative potential. The more this happens the more we all start to co-create with one another and with other forces, elements, sensations. If we want to participate in creating a future world, I believe we must each start by healing our own creativity first.
It’s from this place that I am so delighted to offer Your Creative Power: Yoga Nidra Album.
This album includes four unique practices to help you connect with your creative life force (or to just enjoy some delicious time for yourself).
Your Heart Spirit Guided Visualization
This short seated meditation is designed to help you feel into the sensations at your heart, see the elements within you, and connect with your true spirit.
Guided Deep Relaxation
A practice done laying down where you scan and relax your physical and energetic body. This is useful at any time and, in relation to creativity, it can help you find release so that creative energy flows more.
Book of Life Yoga Nidra
A yoga nidra practice designed to help you see the stories in your life you’d like to shift or release as well as the new ones you’d like to create.
Your Creative Power Yoga Nidra
A yoga nidra practice designed to help you discover more of your creative voice, gifts, power and specifically see something you’d like to create in your life or bring into the world.
You can listen to or purchase the entire album or any one of the tracks that calls to you.
I hope that these recordings serve you well and nurture your creativity.
