Hows your love affair with your Muse?
Thats right, your Muse. Your creative source. Your inspiration for all the kooky, creative things you do. The voice that whispers, Hey, why dont you try encaustic painting? That looks like fun!
Or maybe your voice has a more, well, cranky tone. Maybe your Muses voice gets snarky when she sees others creating. Maybe she feels abandoned in the corner, tucked away behind the towering to-do lists.
It could be time for a relationship check-in. My boyfriend and I do these periodically. We take a walk and discuss the state of our relationship. These conversations clear out any resentments that have been piling up. They offer a safe forum for checking in with our shared dream. And, these tete-a-tetes invariably bring us closer.
Try this with your Muse. Plan a few minutes of quiet time to get connected to your creative source. Use your journal to deepen the connection and listen to what your creative source has to say. Let your pen move on the page and dont censor anything that comes up.
Interview your Muse. Ask the kind of questions that you would ask a really fascinating person that you have always wanted to...
