Speaking Your Truth

There’s freedom in being able to speak your truth. Most times digging up these truths takes more work than most are willing to put in. The nuggets of truth get so buried, that they haven’t seen the light of day since who knows when. So getting to them is hard work. Don’t think for aContinue reading “Speaking Your Truth”

What is Creative Freedom?

Creative freedom is having the freedom to create without limitations. Before we dive in, I wanted to explain that this post is geared toward Conscious Writers. I describe conscious writers as writers who don’t just write to write they write with the intention to grow internally. Back to the hot topic, creative freedom. What isContinue reading “What is Creative Freedom?”

Freedom to Be Heard

The last couple days I’ve been diving into Freedom to Be Heard. It’s the second part of a three part series with creative freedom as the ultimate goal. And wow, what a coincidence that right now women from around the world are fighting be heard. What do we do when others don’t hear us? WhatContinue reading “Freedom to Be Heard”

Letters to Myself

There’s no quit in you. I’ve seen you fight off the impending spiral with words from ancient texts and visions brought to you in the middle of night. Never once did I doubt you. You rest and come back as if you never stepped away. You’ve laid brick by brick by brick. You’ve sweat. You’veContinue reading “Letters to Myself”

The Price of the Journey

Our inner journey is one that’s more valuable than gold. What does it require for us to journey inward? food, safety, shelter, ? Do we need some kind of stimulation to journey inward? Can we meet our core self without a mentor or guru guiding us? I think everyone is different and learns to acknowledgeContinue reading “The Price of the Journey”

When I wrote it, I was referring to the piece of art itself. But I forgot how much art changes us as artists. I have been thinking about yesterday’sContinue reading “The End”

We are Agents of Beginnings

For the conscious writer “We are agents of beginnings.” –Art as Existence by Gabriele Guercio. When I first started writing, I wanted to hide behind my creations. I wanted to be an anonymous figure that created something powerful. For me, there was a sense of humility in creating a profound piece of art while living inContinue reading “We are Agents of Beginnings”

The Single Story

For the Conscious Writer This is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. She is an award winning author from Nigeria. She speaks in this Ted talk (which is now one of the most viewed Ted talks of all time) about how we need to be careful of the single story. Without saying too much, I find it so commendableContinue reading “The Single Story”

Use the Frustration

For the Conscious Writer I understand the frustration that comes with wanting to write. I understand that sometimes things don’t feel right. That frustration can cause a spiral. It can cause negative reactions but as conscious writers, it’s important that we focus this energy into our art and creativity. Use it in the story. ButContinue reading “Use the Frustration”
