Miriam's Blog Post: Choosing to live a creative-filled life even when survival instincts tell you to stay “in-line.”

Why Making Space for Creativity Should Be a Priority Every Damn Day!

If you have followed Kim for a while or only recently started soaking in all the guidance and support offered by the team, you have heard us say, “Just wait! September is going to blow your mind!” The energies will be the best they’ve been in months, actually, years!

Cue the mind…

Right?? Every time I hear a forecast like this my mind starts spinning like a Tilt-A-Whirl. Am I ready? What does this mean? Will I mess this up? Can I mess this up? As my mind continues to whirl and spin, I get so focused on the actions I forget the most important thing, to quiet and tune into all the wisdom the universe wants to bestow on me. I’m so busy trying to make sure I don’t miss something important….I miss something important.

Luckily for us frantic humans, the universe is endlessly patient and offers bountiful grace as we try to engage with and receive her offerings and opportunities.

As we are swept up into the beautiful cocooning energies in the month ahead, give your mind some time off and start to employ the wisdom of the belly to guide you in this dreamy time of universal love and support. Why? Because we are engaging in our life at its deepest origin when we move through the creative vibrations of the sacral. It is from this state of being that we will benefit the most in the coming months as the energies shift from support through growth and change to support through ease and bounty.

Moving from survival mode to comfort and pleasure.

It’s no secret that most of us are living in survival mode. Between the pandemic, a struggling economy, global strife and the effects of climate change, the nervous system is hard-pressed to get a moment of relief. When we are in fight-or-flight our body only thinks about survival; food, shelter, safety. How do we get it, how do we keep it? While I am eternally grateful for this mechanism of my being, I have got to say that now is the time to graciously ask your, “cave-person” self to take a seat.

We just passed through the Lion’s Gate where we left behind the pieces of us that had become dull and tattered. The pieces of us that no longer fit or framed us in a way that was inauthentic to our highest self. And as we passed through, if we were ready and willing, we took up the robes of the lioness. Ego controlled cave-people do not wear the illustrious robes of the divine lioness, but your highest self is most comfortable in this supple adornment of big-cat energy.

Logistically it seems counter-productive to engage in pleasure and comfort while the world around us is seemingly burning to the ground. However, that is exactly what I am encouraging you to do, to step out of survival mode and move into the energy of creation. In the Earthly realm it is a general rule that creatures or even plants will not reproduce if the organism senses that it is not safe to bring new life into the world. Creating new life takes so much energy and effort and support that it is seen as a waste of resources when the environment is unstable. Our human-ness, our voice of survival would probably fall in line with that plan of action at this point in human history. But the oversoul, the new age of consciousness, the evolution of the collective is asking us to choose a different pathway, to evolve out of our caveperson response and act from the depths of our sacral chakra to choose creation even in the face of destruction, even in the face of struggle, even in the face of fear.

But how?? Creativity feeds off of comfort and pleasure, luxury, fun, freedom, space. We have to fill up our life with this type of kindling if we want the fire of inspiration to catch and bloom into a full-on idea or action. The patterns of our lives and the voices of our world have told us to snuff out the idea of pleasure. It is nothing but a lucky happenstance if you experience pleasure, a mere bi-product of years of labor and toil. This is a lie. Pleasure, comfort, sensuality, satisfaction, all of it is your birthright, so claim it.

When I work 1:1 with clients, I often find myself reminding them of this birthright and then walking them through why this is absolutely true for not only them, but every soul on this planet. Let’s take the soul view of life. Of all the places in the cosmos and all the lessons for a soul to gather, your soul chose to be here, in this body, walking this earth in this era of Earth’s history. It could be ANYWHERE but, it chose here. Here! Where there is music and art, poetry, rainbows, puppies, pyramids, even birds, you know – animals that can fly! And you think that you are here to sit at your computer for 40 hours a week hating every second of it only to go home to sit in front of the TV and listen to all the things “they” think you should be concerning yourself with. Child, please. Give your soul the respect it deserves. It is lifetimes older than your current body and definitely wiser than your sweet caveperson mind.

Trust your worth.

Drape yourself in the robes of the lioness and walk through your day seeking out comfort and pleasure. Be intentional about pleasure. Schedule free time, true free time, not free time disguised as errands or casual business meetings. Free time where you’re able to daydream and react spontaneously to whatever inspiration presents itself. Schedule intimacy and satisfaction with a partner or by yourself. This doesn’t have to be just about sex, this is about celebrating the intermingling of mind body and spirit in whatever variation presents itself. Let yourself become befuddled by the world around you, a sunset, the flight of a butterfly, the sound of rain on the roof. Get accustomed to being satisfied instead of seeking what is lacking. Start to name and celebrate all the places you are fully satiated. Let pleasure be your fuel to seek out a continually evolving life not failure or lack.

Square September from the fertile place of your sacral. Cast the vision of your life from eyes of the belly where all things are lush and brilliant.

We will not walk through this life unaffected by the state of the world, however, we must stay the course and walk with the swaying gait of the lioness, operating from our deep knowing that we are not here to just survive, we are here to thrive and we are here to take the willing collective with us.

With Love and Gratitude,
Miriam
