With my focus this year on creativity, and my goal of reading a book a week, ‘Big Magic’ seemed like the logical place to start. I listened to it, and straight away started to listen to it again. It is a spiritual book, which honours the creative process as a spiritual process. Elizabeth Gilbert shares her world of creativity with humour and authenticity.
What were the take aways for me?
- Projects are ‘things’ with ‘spirit’ that come and go and need to be treated with respect. I can court them like a lover.
- Don’t let fear stop me from creating. Some will love what I do and some will hate it.
- Asking my creativity to support me will suffocate it, keep my day job!
There is so much more, this is a must read for anyone wanting to bring creativity into their daily lives in any form. Remembering creativity lights up the energy body and engages us with our spirit in a joyful way if we let it.
