The video that I am sharing with you today is really something special. It’s actually a sneak peek at part of the upcoming ‘Your Creative Work’ course that debuts this fall as a new Spark Your Being™ program.
The Five Creative Stages are so important that I just had to share them with you now — I couldn’t wait! I’ve developed this program with my private clients and they always find that these different creative stages is a big ‘AHA’ moment …
“It’s a real game changer!”
This becomes a pivotal moment, when they could suddenly accept each stage and know how necessary each one is to their creative work. They understand and acknowledge how each stage helps them move forward and be more productive with their creativity while finding more joy in their creative process.
Heads up that it’s nearly 20 minutes long, because there is so much about these Creative stages that I want you to know. (Plus, remember, that this is actually content from my Your Creative Work program).
I know that might put some of you off! After all, you’re trying to find time to do your creative work, and it feels like you can’t spend 20 minutes watching a video. Right? Funny enough, that’s actually one of the points that I want to share with you today.
Your creative work isn’t just about sitting down and doing — although of course that is a big part of it. The five stages: Nurture, Inspiration, Process, Release, and Receive show that there is more to creativity than just chaining yourself to your desk, easel, or workbench and telling yourself that you can’t move until you get the work done.
You’ve got to be able to give yourself permission to recharge your creative batteries, to nurture and inspire yourself. (And really, haven’t we all sat down for just a couple of minutes to check social media and looked up to find that we’re now running late?) Go on. You owe yourself this 20 minutes!
The most important take away from the video is this: The Creative Stages don’t go in a straight line, and there is nothing wrong with spending more time in one stage than another. Only by embracing the entire process and accepting that creativity isn’t something your logical left brain is controlling can you acknowledge it for what it truly is. So you can finally let your creative flow FLOW!
“It’s all good, and it all counts!”

Until next time …
