The impulse was strong & clear. I was ready to ‘raise the bar’ with my ‘emerging vision’ project but I just wasn’t sure how best to achieve that.
I certainly had lots of possibilities in mind but couldn’t yet see a way forwards which felt ‘right’ at every level (authentic alignment is a high priority for me).
So I wrote about how I was feeling in my journal and spontaneously sent out a plea for help to guide my next steps. Then I let it go and moved on to other things.
Within 36 hours I had my answer!
I was relaxing in one of my regular candle-lit baths when it started.
The first inkling of what was to come was most definitely an ‘aha’ moment. In fact, this proved to be the first in a series of multiple ‘aha’ moments which I found myself ‘downloading’ over a period of about 3 hours!
I had a realisation which would involve a slight shift of emphasis but which would lead to a major shift in both significance and results for all concerned.
Thereafter, ‘complete’ ideas arrived at about 3 to 5 minute intervals, each one demanding to be written down.
Having had many such experiences before, I have learnt to ‘go with the flow’ when these instances occur.
So I left the luxury of my hot bath and reached for a pen and paper to capture the words on the page.
With each ‘download’, the vision of the big picture became clearer, the details took on shape and colour, and the internal ‘yes’ became louder and stronger.
It felt as if I had been lifted onto a new level of clarity and I was delighted to see the answers laid out in front of me.
It doesn’t matter at all that it will probably take me some time to implement everything.
That’s absolutely fine.
I now know how I am going to follow through on my impulse to ‘raise the bar’ with my project in an authentic way, and feel even more enthusiastic about doing so than I did before .
So next time you’re not sure what direction to take with your writing, or indeed any question you may have about your creative expression, your business or your life in general, why not try this approach?
Write your thoughts and feelings down in a journal, and include a clear question or request for help, guidance or advice … then let it go.
In the days and weeks which follow, pay attention to what may be subtle clues in response to your request or more obvious answers like the ones I have described receiving.
The more you work consciously with such techniques, the more they are likely to work for you and the more quickly the ‘responses’ will arrive.
It would be great to hear about your experiences of answering your own questions and raising your creative bar so do please add your comments and stories below.
