I used to idolize my heroes, teachers, mentors and role models.
I would make up whole stories about them... how they handle certain situations, what their daily lives look like, how they get that amazing work done...
And in a lot of ways it was helpful! Like, when I felt stuck I would turn to these stories to help me find a way through. Just like WWJD? I could ask myself what my heroes would do and it really did help.
But a lot of the time this idolizing was NOT helpful.
I am LOVING loving the end-of-the-decade vibe we're in right now! I'm doing tons of reflecting and releasing to make space for that I want - not just in the new year for in this new decade.
As I look back through the decades I see that there is one thing that's always been constant for me: My dreams are ALWAYS calling me to be more creative. To use my creative gifts to help others. What this looks like in the outer world changes all the time but that inner pull remains the same.
Hearing the stories of people who are pursuing their dreams is one of the things I find most inspiring in the world. I'm lucky, I get to hear these stories every day in the Creative Dream Circle, my Online Incubator for Dreamers, Artists, Healers, Coaches and World-Changers.
So I'm sharing some of their stories out here!
Today I'm talking with Eefje Jansen. Eefje is working on accepting who she is and daring to share her light with the world. She is a sensitive, intuitive woman,...
I did literally fail at ALL of my goals for 2019 and, upon reflection, this is a VERY GOOD THING.
I have a lot to say about how wholeheartedly and enthusiastically pursuing our goals can move us towards our dreams - regardless of it we reach the goals or not.
So.... as I shared yesterday, I failed at ALL my goals for 2019.
Last week I did a Circle of Reflection + Release in the Creative Dream Circle - we got together on Zoom to reflect on 2019, to explore and honour all the...

Hello 2020!! Creative Journal Prompts for the New Year
First we reflect on the year that is ending.
It's actually REALLY...
Reflection + Release. This work is a way to make space for what you want.
So often you want what you want but you're holding on to what you have so what you want has no space to arrive in your life.
The end of the year is a really good time for this work, to let go of what you don't want to carry with you into 2020.
I feel like I have a LOT to reflect upon and release in order to step into the vibe I want for 2020. I mean - 2020! A whole new decade!
But sometimes this work is...
I've been stuck about writing this page for about a month.
After 13 years of teaching this stuff and 9 years of successful online creative entrepreneurship - it's been humbling and frustrating to not be able to write a sales page for the program I have made that I am the most proud of.
Dream Book is the best thing I've ever made. So of course I got all tangled up trying to figure out how to talk about it. I mean it took me 2.5 years to make Dream Book - why would I think making the sales...

I am creating the most...
Why are you panicking right now?
Because I don’t know how to do this! Any of it! OMG! I have to do it but I don’t know how!
Ok. Wow that’s hard. Is it ok if I ask you to take a few deep breaths with me?
Yeah I guess so, I don’t know what else to do.
How do you feel now?
A bit better, like there is some space between me and the panic.
Oh that’s great!
Except I do have to get to work which means going close to it again.
