Over the past two decades, I've been on a journey of rewiring the energy of "Don't Look. Keep Working." to an energy that is based on love instead of trauma. It is about learning to have a healthy relationship with the creative process of all that is.
Each year on this day of September 11, I release more of the residual trauma in my nervous system from the day of the Twin Tower attacks in NYC. Last year, I was resourced enough to write about my Don’t Look. Keep Working experience of that day, and this year I’ve gone deeper than ever before, and it is becoming much lighter as I allow more love and reverence in my heart.
Being in awe of the beauty of all that is while still creating in alignment with the highest good is born out of presence and centering. Pausing is often the only way to notice where we are not present and off center.
This morning I felt pretty clear about what I was meant to create today, yet when I sat in meditation, my channel had a lot going on from all directions inside and out. It was so important to intentionally give myself the space to resource myself before jumping into this writing. Not because I needed to be perfect, but because diving in eyes wide open as centered as possible has the most positive effect.
"Look and Create Anyways." is my new mantra, and it pairs well with both letting go of attachment to outcome as well as laying down to impulse to destroy that which I cannot control. Through it all, my heart is lightening and opening as I look and create in connection with Source.
As I’ve been willing to see the light and the shadow within myself and around me, I’ve been Unwinding Addiction and Choosing Alignment Instead. I’ve realized creativity is not about shoulds, supposed tos, forcing, going through the motions, comfort, right/wrong. Creativity is about presence & intention, learning & growing, freedom & expansion, allowing what is meant to be to be (after all, the Forces of Nature are at play).
All of life in the universe is dynamic. The macro and micro cycles of creation flow into individual and collective growth. Letting go of attachment to outcome is different than destroying. Letting go of holding space in the way of gripping control actually allows space for creation. Limitless possibilities sprout forth from the ground up, and we each get to choose which to water in co-creation with Source and each other.
