After many months of engaging ever more deeply with my ‘emerging vision’ project, and taking the action required for this vision to show up in the world, I have reached the penultimate stage of this phase of the journey.
I am at the point where I can see before me the tangible evidence of my efforts over the last few months … and I totally love it!
Before I take the final step and reveal the details in just a few days time, I am pausing to appreciate the experience I have had and the enormous growth this project has demanded of me.
So what can I share from my experience that may be of value to you?
Here are three tips which can be applied to your creative writing and publishing activities:
1. Embracing change to accomodate your vision requires an open mind, an open heart and a strong inner commitment to your core purpose.
With any major creative project there are a multitude of different points of balance to aim for.
Perhaps one of the most important is the relationship between being focused on what you are doing whilst remaining open to new possibilities.
The anchor which enables you to achieve – and maintain - your equilibrium within the intensity of the full creative flow comes from the clarity and commitment you have to your core purpose.
With this in place, you can keep an open mind, make changes as and when it feels right to do so, yet still remain totally on track with your vision overall.
2. It is important to give your vision time and space to take shape in the world in a way that honours the original impulse.
Another important relationship to honour is that of time and space.
The creative impulse has an energy all of its own and working consciously with it does involve immersing yourself totally in the flow and engaging in the ‘dance’.
This can be extremely ‘full on’ at times and often requires that you work at quite a pace as your project takes on tangible form.
Energising though this may be, it is equally important to honour the value of making enough time and space to avoid distortion of the ’big picture’.
3. Deepening the connection to your intuition and trusting the process leads you towards the most authentic and successful expression of your vision.
The more you listen to your intuition, the more it works for you, and the stronger your confidence can be in those subtle inner promptings.
Having consciously developed my intuition for many years, I recognise
the complete sense of ‘knowing’ I experience when it is offering guidance.
Learning to trust that there are ‘greater forces’ at work with any project is both liberating and empowering.
So allow intuition to steer your path and experience for yourself the integrity of the results which come from such inner-directed action.
Arriving at this stage of the journey with the major components of my vision now in place is a significant milestone to reach.
Yet of course it is simply the start of the next phase which is all about sharing, communicating and connecting with the people this vision has been created to serve.
If you are an aspiring or published author who values an authentic approach to successful published authorship, that means you!
So watch this space for all to be revealed in just a few short days from now.
In the meantime, I’d love to hear about your ‘emerging vision’ project(s) so do add your comments below.
