  • A Return to the Beach: Sensoria

    Nov 14 2021

    In this episode, we go back a bit in time ... but the sentiment remains the same:  Paying attention to the senses is a good way to get into the creative moment.

    Sensoria, played by Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, Sadie Spikes, gives us this wisdom, and despite or maybe BECAUSE of ruminations, a creative story emerges ... along with a refreshing sea breeze.

  • A Moment with a Muse: Making Time

    Oct 30 2021

    Giving yourself permission to make time for your creativity can have a bigger impact on who you are than you might have been thinking. 
     

    Consider that if you’re listening to this, creativity is a value of yours. There’s something beyond the intellect that’s calling you to engage in this love affair with the present moment  – it’s instinctual and validating. Engaging in creativity in a conscious liberated way without the pressure to be perfect makes you a more secure and confident person. Why wouldn’t you make time for that? Even if it’s just five minutes. Or asking yourself a question about your next step while you’re driving or showering without a need for an immediate answer.  Enticing curiosity is a valid part of the creative process and leads us to being more inspired to take the next step.

    When you honor this value by spending time with it,  your core strengthens and you’re more likely to  develop into a resilient, patient, resourceful person – because creativity calls upon those qualities and that  resilience, patience, and resourcefulness – WILL start to show up in other areas of your life. As a stronger individual you will be more present, tolerant, and beneficial to those around you.. Give yourself permission to be a better person by making time for your creativity.

  • Return to Moonbeams Home in a Jar

    Sep 21 2021

    The nice thing about little stories is you can listen to them again and get something new the second time. I think that might be the case with this story. Our lives wax and wane but one thing remains the same, creativity is a reflection of our brightness  ... and sometimes our darkness.  This episode sheds some light on the creative process.

    "Sometimes when we just let .. ideas go  out the window, we can practice trusting that the next idea may make us better off than we are. But I think what is truer, is that we are fine just the WAY we are. … in our darkness, our light,   our emptiness, our fullness, and each time we start over anew in whatever we do ."

    Written, engineered, and narrated by Jill Badonsky.
