One of the things every artist face is creative block, and while there are several reasons behind this, the one I want to talk to you about today is the block that comes when we are dealing with too much.
It may be too much confusion, too much overwhelm, grief, heartbreak, anxiety, insecurity, discouragement, or any of those powerful negative emotions that weigh us down. It’s the emotions that get us trapped inside our minds and hold us back from the joy we usually experience as we create.
As an artist I know how much this hurts because I also know the power of inspiration; the deep seeded need to get inside my studio when an idea hits and the magic of flow state that fills me to the brim by getting it all out. I also know the level of grief that occurs when we start to think “what’s the use” or when we are too distracted by emotional pain that we cannot even consider going into the studio, much less producing anything good.
After coaching for nearly two decades and working through my own pain, one of the biggest things I have had to learn is we have a way of avoiding the very things that we need for healing. We are perfectly imperfect after all.
The good news is there is a powerful way of healing and getting back to the joy of inspiration when we set out with intention to overcome it! Getting back inside our studio and doing the thing that we lost joy in is the very thing we need to do to arrive back to the magic.
