There is something SURREAL about holding your book in your hands. Something you made and put forth. It is both out of body and wildly embodied experience.
The process of putting my poetry forth has been a combination of being brave, doing the work of regular writing, and shutting down my inner critic.
Sometimes this process felt like my full-time job...HA!
I talk about Bravely Creating in this week's Pajama Talk - maybe it will be helpful to you. There are some ideas and resources that helped me. Click the thumbnail below.
Do you create? Do you share your creations? If not, why? If so, how does it feel? And have you felt that creating is a holy experience?
For me, it has been just that. Co-creating with the Divine and leaning into my edges of fear that try and keep me small.
In addition, it's about letting go of any "results." Just putting it forth as a gift...not worrying about how many people read/see it, how many people buy it, how it is received.
Detachment from the results. hooboy! Fertile ground.
Anyhow, I'd love to hear your process and how you till the garden of your creativity.
