I’m so lost inside my prayers that night is day and day is night. I go out in the storm and seek refuge from the sun. My music disappears when I try to capture it, and flows abundantly when I relax into its release. The urge to create perfection is my enemy. Embracing my huamnness is my salve. May all beings be happy, healthy, peaceful and at ease.
I was exploring creative expression and a lack thereof with my EMDR therapist on Monday. And it came to me suddenly… If I could simply start doodling, just to get the creative ball rolling, eventually the momentum would pick up and I could flow along with it. Right after the session, I went down to my car and took out of my purse a fine point Sharpie and a blank index card and I wrote the word M O M E N T U M and some wavy lines all around it. That evening, I got my watercolors out and worked on two paintings. The next night and the night after that my kids and I drew together. Same for the next morning. That afternoon I worked on a mandala, gel pens on black paper, and it felt good to create, and I realized, yes, momentum is real. If you are feeling creatively blocked friend, just begin something. Just get that ball rolling and you’ll see… MOMENTUM is your friend.
