I’m facilitating an Artist’s Way group.
Today was the start date of official meetings.
In chapter 1 Julia Cameron introduces the “Censor”.
I did not expect
to come face-to-face with mine
outside the pages . . .
But instead . . .
inside, as group leader.
“You’re not doing well,” it says.
“Not enforcing the guidelines,” it says.
Then old memories resurface.
in other times I have lead.
Then, I want to hide.
I want to quit.
I want to lay down
But Instead I breathe,
focus on my heart.
Focus on the others.
And everyone seems happy.
I see it now: the group itself is a work of art.
The Creator spoke to me, and we made this.
And it is beautiful.
And I am grateful.
Much love and many blessings. ❤
It’s kind of crazy how dreams are becoming reality. Not too many years ago I wasn’t even dreaming. I was advised to “have fun” — but I didn’t know what that meant.
Then I started thinking: “I might like to do that someday.” And “Maybe I could try that.”
And now I’m doing things. I talked with my friend years ago about learning how to sew from her — and now I’ve sewn two pillow cases and a pair of pants! (Just need to manifest my own sewing machine!) I kept thinking I should dance more, that it might be nice to take a dance class — now I’m going to teach one! I’m journaling and going Live in the mornings; I’m blogging every night. My first Artist’s Way 12-week group officially starts tomorrow. Things that took FOREVER for me to get going are suddenly all locking into place.
I’m beginning to feel the abundance, I’m opening, I’m freeing up, and I’m so grateful.
Wishing the same for you each and every day! Much love and many blessings. ❤
Today I facilitated the Artist’s Way group. I was the coach. Saturday I train for Zumba — I’ll be the dancer. In the car I am the rocker and scheme up karaoke night. Watching Dry Comedy I join the comedian; someday standing on my own stage. Tonight I come to you as both the author and the artist.
Who are you today? What are the dreams you already live? Which dreams are still waiting?
Thank you for another day. Much love and many blessings. ❤
So . . . it looks like my blog content never posted yesterday. And. . . I didn’t save my post outside of wordpress, so, it’s gone. Forever. HOWEVER, I did technically write a blog post. There was a title. And someone even liked the post. So, it counts! Still blogging every day! Ha! (Side note — or not-so-side note — Mercury IS in retrograde right now. I completely blame Mercury for this.)
But in summary of what never appeared yesterday, I’ve been facilitating an informal Artist’s Way group that officially starts regular meetings next week, and it has been marvelous. Things have been moving and flowing for me amazingly (except for occasional technology snafus), and I even had a complete mis-communication come to a head at the beginning of the week that blossomed into a beautiful re-connection and amazing life lesson.
Because of Artist’s Way I’ve been writing every day. I’ve been taking at least one Artist’s date every week (a creative date that feeds your inner child). And this week I’ve decided to follow the universe’s nudge a bit and become a Zumba instructor. (Possibly more on this later — and if you’re reading this on Facebook, watch for my Facebook Live video on it Wednesday!)
The Artist’s Way has re-entered my life and created miracles, and maybe if you’re reading this it is talking to you, too!
Thank you for sharing another beautiful day. Much love and many blessings! ❤
