Creative Life: Week 25 2024 - Connecting and Moving Forward

Week 25: Momentum - I will take one step forward every day. (SoulSistersToo: Creative)
Intention Setting: Spirit, please help me notice the steps I need to take to move forward.

Connecting and Moving Forward...

This week spirit guided me to connect with friends and family through a variety of ways;
  • Visiting them for the day
  • Catching up over a cuppa in a cafe
  • Texting messages and sending photos
  • Phone calls
  • Chill out time
When I connect with these special people (people who build me up) I am reminded that these interactions are inspiring and supportive. This was a message I truly needed after so many months working alone on preparing my art exhibition. 

In sharing with loved ones what I've been doing (reflecting) and listening to what they have been experiencing I have discovered a new feeling of momentum. Now, I have a pathway to move towards what I'd like to achieve in the remainder of this year and even in future years. (I find myself thinking about the next exhibition, even though I don't have any new artworks yet.)

Spirit also showed me that sometimes inspiration can come from browsing in a bookstore. I just love bookstores and seeing what delights can be found inside. Unlike last time I went book shopping when I entered the shop this time I didn't have any titles in mind, but soon, two books caught my eye.

The first book was, The Creative Act: A Way of Being by Rick Rubin. This book has been on my to read list for around 12 months and until I saw it on one of the main display tables I had totally forgotten about it. 

The second book was, 301 writing Ideas: Creative prompts to inspire. This was an impulse buy that I thought mmmmmm this book may help me reveal some new ideas or opinions that I may have never considered before. But I also thought it could help me progress my writing or help with my daily journaling, when I don't have much to write about.

I wonder what spirit has put on your path this week, that may have contributed to you taking a step forward, creating momentum in your life?
