Bravely Creating

There is something SURREAL about holding your book in your hands.

Something you made and put forth.
It is both out of body and wildly embodied experience.

The process of putting my poetry forth has been a combination of being brave, doing the work of regular writing, and shutting down my inner critic.

Sometimes this process felt like my full-time job…HA!

I talk about Bravely Creating in this week’s Pajama Talk – maybe it will be helpful to you. There are some ideas and resources that helped me.

Do you create? Do you share your creations? If not, why? If so, how does it feel? And have you felt that creating is a holy experience?

For me, it has been just that. Co-creating with the Divine and leaning into my edges of fear that try and keep me small.

In addition, it’s about letting go of any “results.” Just putting it forth as a gift…not worrying about how many people read/see it, how many people buy it, how it is received.

Detachment from the results. hooboy! Fertile ground.

Anyhow, I’d love to hear your process and how you till the garden of your creativity.

Much peace, S

Self-Compassion – Tool #5

Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of playlist (1).png

The gift of Self-Compassion is a practice.

Like a string of pearls, each time you practice a moment of self-compassion, you string a pearl. And as you practice, you string another and another and another until you have a beautiful string.

And those pearls can help gird you when your inner critic pipes in to tell you you aren’t good enough.

And those pearls can help gird you in the face of a culture whose messages are designed to make you feel less than, not enough, always lacking.

And truly, like this quote says, this string can change your life.

Collect your pearls.

You are a gift.

Pajama Talks – “What I Will Be” by Amber Tamblyn

I don’t have much to say about this week. It was a challenging week. Because I couldn’t find my words, a friend shared this poem by Amber Tamblyn. It’s called, “What I Will Be” and though it’s specific to this week and dedicated to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, I think it will serve to support you whenever you get knocked down emotionally.

Self-Compassion – Tool #4

Copy of playlist (1)

Have you ever heard that saying that we teach what we most need?

This tool of Self-Compassion is a skill that I’ve had to learn again,
and again,
and again.

I feel like I’m hardwired to be hypercritical of myself. I am my own worst enemy. The things I have said to myself, I’d never say to another human being. Ever.

Then why would I heap it on my beautiful self?

If your compassion practice doesn’t include your SELF, then you are, paraphrasing author Deborah Adele, painting the world blue from a red paint can.

Compassion for others starts from being compassionate toward your SELF.

Peace, Sarah

Pajama Talks – Using Your Voice

Yesterday, I had a series of difficult conversations around something I care deeply about…it was hard and painful and I lost some people.

In today’s Pajama Talk we talk about Using Your Voice. Finding it, using it, why it’s important and how to navigate difficult conversations.

Difficult conversations are just that….difficult. But there are some ways you can move through them that help you to keep your calm, keep your center and stay on point.


CLICK HERE TO SEE IT. 

If you have any tools that help you find and use your voice while having hard conversations, please share.

Peace, Sarah

Self Compassion – Tool #3

Words are powerful. I believe that what we say has a hand in what we create.

If you say, “I am bummed” enough….you will, indeed be bummed.

If you say, “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not able” or “I’m not worthy”…these things will be.

Words are powerful.

What if, instead, you said things that are constructive?

I am powerful.

I am beautiful.

I am brilliant.

I am able.

I am.

I am.

I am.

Give it a shot. Participate in the creation of your future. Life doesn’t just happen to you. You co-create it. You take what has been given and decide what to do with it.

I am ______________.
What are you?

Last time we talked stop signs. Now replace them with reconstructed I am’s.

Let me know how it goes.
Peace, Sarah
