Each day (April 29 - May 3) I'll post a Creative Self-Care prompt on Instagram to help you explore how to nurture and boost your creative energy.

You can participate on your own, or you can join the community on Instagram where you can comment on the daily posts or even create and post your own artwork and photos inspired by the prompts. I'll be there in the comments section each day to help you brainstorm ideas and cheer you on.

If you create your own artwork in response to the...

Online marketing with creativity + integrity in the age of the "boss babe" sleaze-o-rama.

Over the last 2 years, I have been working hard on re-thinking my work and creating a whole new framework for how I help creative people make their dreams real. 

This kind of re-imagining takes a LOT of energy. So, for the last 2 years, I have had to pull back on other parts of my business. Most notably: marketing.

Whatever your dream is, there are some parts of it that you LOVE to work on and some parts that you don't love. And, whatever your dream is, your dream NEEDS YOU to...

On calling myself a WRITER even though my Inner Critic thinks this is ridiculous

Since that blog post about Show Up. Tell The Truth I have been thinking about this thing I've got where I can't claim the title of WRITER for myself.

I make art for ME. Most of the art I make I never share. Even when I do share it, it's usually not because I want to share the art itself, it's more about sharing the inspiration behind the art.

And yet I easily claim the title of ARTIST.

I write for myself in my journal all the time. I can claim the title of journaler.

Writing, like the kind...

I struggle to call myself a writer.

This is especially interesting considering the fact that I have made my living for the last 8.5 years primarily though writing.

I have a huge inner critic about it who says: Who am I to say I am a writer? There is this sense that there is something beyond the fact that I write that needs to happen before I can call myself a writer.

And yet I'm a gardener because I had a garden. Even in the times when I was a super lazy gardener and the weeds were...

The Emergency Kit for Artists + Dreamers includes a CURE for PROCRASTINATION.

This is what happened for Jenifer, who was procrastinating about getting a handmade scarf posted to her Etsy shop:

"I watched the Procrastination Cure video and did the journaling exercises last weekend; I had been procrastinating for weeks about taking pictures of a scarf I finished and posting it on Etsy.

As I watched the video and did the journaling, I felt a sense of ease and clarity, the feeling...

Everything is falling apart

Sometimes what is needs to fall apart in order to make space for what's next. I have a feeling I am in a falling apart phase, and I have been fighting it with everything I've got. I HATE THIS.

My website was hacked three times in just over a week. I'll spare you all the dramatic stories about that part - it was awful.

Then I decided to move my website to a different platform that won't be as easily hacked. I was actually going to make this move at some point anyway, and it just started...

The Principles of Creative Dream Alchemy

No one can follow all of these principles all of the time, that's not even the point.

The point is to be mindful of them, and do your best to be aware of when you're going against one of the principles.

You can usually tell that you are doing this because you'll find that you're stalled out on the path to your dream.

You don't have to feel ready

 

You don't have to feel ready.

The conditions in your life will never be ideal for your dreams - that's kind of the whole point of a dream. It wants to CHANGE your...

My next coaching group is: Your Gifts Are Needed. An Incubator for Would-Be World-Changers.

 

It’s running from April 1-22.

 

I do believe our dreams will save the world, that every dream made real changes the world of the dreamer and the people around it, helping us get more aligned with the truth of who we are.

 

I believe this is the most important work we do. AND it’s some of the scariest work we do.
