Storytelling is the way we build our identity as human beings. And the weavers of those stories come in the form of traditional archetypes.
Ultimately the memories we choose to tell form carefully placed scenes of our story; which then inform our life purpose.
We are what we share and we only share if we care –
So, it’s simply inappropriate to brush off our experiences as dull or insignificant. How we choose to connect to our stories is what makes an interesting meaningful story arc.
What we choose to say and share is extremely important, whether its last weeks school graduation as a meaningful event, the birth of a child or the death of a loved one as a turning point, it doesn’t matter what the event, but rather it’s the essence, the emotion, the spirit that’s expressed about the moment that really matters.
Finding a genuine, formative moment in your story is always going to be a powerful and valuable contribution to your reader or audience. Our stories are what teach us and guide us toward our humanity.
Do you have a story that needs to be shared?
We long for connection with all that is curious and creative.
We are creatures who belong to each other for reasons beyond analysis, for it is our heart’s desire and our life’s dream to fulfill a worthy story.
We ache with a need to connect and create or sadly the other is we become numb and silently indifferent.
Yet it is the never-ending and renewed STORY that is forever wanting to grow through us… I urge you, dear storytellers of our time, to be at one with its magical forces. For in truth there is nothing but Story, it is what teaches us and what sustains us as human beings. STORY informs our purpose, but more importantly, it gives humanity its Soul.

Do you have a story wanting to grow through you?
An idea or inspiration comes in from the Mind of Creation and drops into our consciousness. If we act on that idea the creative process begins and moves further into our personal being.
It progressively moves into other levels of the Self.
These are the levels – Celestial Self, Spiritual Self, Emotional Self, Physical Self.
1. A seed idea comes in from the Celestial Self (purpose centre)
2. Plants itself in the Spiritual Self (creative centre)
3. Is then often thought about and deeply felt in the Emotional Self (feeling centre)
4. Manifests in the world of form through the Physical Self. (reality centre)
Remembering all the while, that clarity and purity of intention are key in any phase of the creative process.
However, the full activation takes place in the Emotional Realm. It is in the realm of the Emotional Self that we get to really FEEL our creation. The feeling aspect of the creation process is crucial in order for your idea to manifest in the Physical Realm. If you are not able to fully embody the emotion and desire for this creation it will simply stay captive in the upper realms. It is your clarity and pure heartfelt desire that will bring your dream, idea or creation to life.
Sometimes we have to move through our deepest emotions in order to have our dream realized.
Your creations are connected to your purpose in life, it is important that you feel connected to both. A good thing to remember is that your creative impulse comes from your higher heart, not an ego-driven need. Pain, Passion, Power, Purpose – it is through this order of progression that people create amazing results in their life.
The truth of the matter is, its all about how we feel about something that makes it happen.
We each have a unique creative process and that is due to our authentic nature; our archetypes.
What is your creative style, how do you create?
