Unfortunately May is nearly over and I feel that I haven't been following my intuition. In fact I seemed to have sabotaged myself at times. Why? Well, I've been thinking about this and I think it comes down to simple fear. I am scared of following my intuition. My intuition clearly advises me to get on with writing & creating. But the nagging voice of fear keeps telling me things like: 'why bother, you've got no talent, you'll never make any money at it & you'd be better off doing XYZ'
Nevertheless I have tried to follow my gut regardless of my reluctance. I've sang 'la la la' with my fingers in my ears (metaphorically speaking) when the fear taunts me. I've forced myself to my writing desk. I've cajoled myself to create a page in my art journal. I've snapped photos of scenes that have caught my attention. I've sat down at the piano & tried to lose myself in playing. The interesting and consistent result is that I always feel better after engaging in the creative activity that my intuition begs me to do. It seems that for some reason the things that are best for us are the very same things we avoid.
Although May is nearly over I am determined to bring "intuition" into everything I create. When I let go, do what feels right and lose myself in the act of creating - more often than not I have the best results. More importantly I feel a helluva lot better mentally & physically. Plus, I've gathered relevant experiences that will be useful to my current non-fiction writing project.
Please share your similar experiences. I'd love to read about them.
