People often ask me “how” I create, for this site and in life.
I cultivate whole-body wellness in various ways; most significantly vesting solely in that which is enriching and enlivening, nourishing and inspiring to my entire being.
I have a few daily practices in the morning and evening–such as writing morning pages, meditation, walking at ocean’s edge at sunset, and sharing gratitude in a journal or notes.
From this space, full of clarity and trust, I create my life–my connections, movements, dreams.
I take long walks in nature (the above is one of my favorite spots) exploring the hills, ocean, and gardens. I honor ample time and space for these walks–this particular one was in between a creative session for Facets and school pick-up for my two children. There was an hour between picking up one child and another, and I chose to use that time at this park and walk the trail in the hills.
(I could have chosen to run errands or read a book or speak on the phone).
On this walk, I took the above photo (and others). I breathed in fresh air, felt my fingertips chill in the cold, saw bold colors, was a bit afraid of the freshly placed “caution: rattlesnakes” sign.
I felt World through my senses, feeling very refreshed and enlivened.
From this space, full of the feel of abundance and connected-ness, I create “my work”.
This is a concrete example of the concept working with ease.
My colleagues wonder why I spend so much time offline. My friends wonder why I spend so much time in nature.
I don’t differentiate between work and play. To me, it is all a celebration of presence to life—manifesting through myriad creative expressions and connections, evolving as I evolve.
I feel utter gratitude for the gift of each moment.
(This means I am not feeling “all that I do not have”, I am celebrating the abundance in this moment, and allowing that gratitude to amplify the reality of infinite possibility as I move through World).
We have different ways of moving…this is “my way” (presence to unfolding within organic growth). I share it here, to shed a bit of light on who I am and how I move. This energy infuses all that I do…it is “how” I create, practice, move, love, share.
I would love to know how do you create? If you may share one of your practices of creating, and how does this practice feel? (and creating could mean a specific project or an entire way of life).
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Linger. Savor. Relish.
