Spark your creativity, even in Mercury retrograde
Hello Creative QB’s,
Waiting for the planets to align? Or the moon to eclipse, mercury retrograde to fade and the universe to open before you can be creative?

The energy of astrological events like the one we have been having over the past week may help to ignite and focus your creative desires, but there is no need to wait for the perfect environment, situation or circumstance to bring your creative spirit to life. (July 2020 has been a super astrological event, the planets aligned, the moon eclipsed and Mercury was in retrograde).
I love me some good woo woo energy. It can bring an opportunity to receive much clarity and focus together with ideas and momentum. But don’t stress, or go into a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out) if you feel you’re missed out on receiving a creative divine intervention – it doesn’t work that way.
Your ability to be creative with consistency and joy doesn’t rely on astrological events, the wings of angels, or the creative Gods to deliver.
Creativity is not a result of one inspired bolt of inspiration that comes out of the blue. Your creativity already lives within you. It’s the work you do over time to awaken your muse that is more significant to your life. It’s a series of many small strikes, jolting you awake and shining a light in your direction that strengthens creative muscle over time.
When you are in the flow of everyday creativity, you are far more open to little bolts of inspiration striking all the time, stimulating your creative energy, encouraging bigger, more inspired events – even when Mercury is in retrograde.
There is one easy, everyday tool you can use right now to awaken your creativity. I have used this tool consistently throughout my life, it opened my world to the magic of creative possibility and helped re-imagined my life many times over.
This simple tool is daily journaling. Writing two pages, in your own handwriting everyday. There are really no rules, except, just write and keep writing. I guarantee that overtime your creativity will rise from the pages; ideas, drawings, emotions, memories, beliefs will all surface on the page and awaken your unique, personal creativity.
Even when the moon is waning.
