Boundless Creativity: A Spiritual Workbook for Overcoming Self-Doubt, Emotional Traps and Other Creative Blocks invites you on a month-long voyage into your imagination and inner self. You’re asked to create an external creativity goal of your choosing — whether it be to write a story, paint a portrait, plant a vegetable garden — and then commit to a specific deadline (meaning to specify an actual end date) by which to complete your goal. You’re asked to choose a realistic and, at the same time, challenging deadline. Why challenging? Because having a looming end date often creates tension. Tension activates thoughts and beliefs and blockages that lead to stagnation, the very emotional traps and creative blocks you’re then guided toward acknowledging and ultimately burning off.
A woman who interviewed me in anticipation of Boundless Creativity release (now available), mentioned that she’d always wanted to a stand-up comic, and because of reading the workbook, she decided to give herself a goal of writing two jokes a day. I then asked her, “why not challenge yourself further and pick a specific date to work toward to actually stand up in front of an audience and tell the jokes you’ve generated?”
Take the Challenge
So, what about you? What’s your dream?
Now that we’re asked to shelter-in-place, why not jumpstart that dream you’ve always held of:
- Writing a novel
- Illustrating a children’s book
- Learning to play the piano for a recital for friends and family on Zoom by a certain date
- Painting that mural you’ve been fantasizing about in your child’s room
As you do, let Boundless Creativity serve as your guide to demystify and normalize the highs and lows of the creative lifecycle, and take you step-by-step on a spiritual journey toward living your best creative life.
