As we begin to celebrate the New Year 2017, it’s important to draw from within the darkness of winter to find the themes of our memoir that will blossom as the year moves into the light of spring. I’m so pleased to have Tina Games, the Moonlight Muse and the author/creator of Journaling by the Moonlight: A Creative Path to New Beginnings lead us into journal writing exercises to strengthen our ability to trust the creative process and bring more clarity to writing our memoir. Her specialty is bringing an awareness of the larger planetary and energetic elements to writers and creative people. I hope you enjoy the presentation!
Our lunar goddess is rich with wisdom. She teaches us how to move from darkness into light with the gracefulness of a ballroom dance. We step in, we step out – and we circle back around again.
Looking up at the night sky during a first quarter lunar phase, we see a moon that’s half lit. It serves as a reminder that there’s always more than what meets the eye. It sparks a strong sense of curiosity within us.
When we ponder our creative process and the memoir that we’re writing, we can choose to look at this moon phase as half light – with lots of room for possibilities and expansion. Or we can look at it as half dark – with lots of space to hide, wondering about the safety of “coming out” and triggering our own vulnerability.
As we look at the brightness of this magnificent lunar object, we can feel a sense of wonderment. There is so much potential in territories not yet explored.
Of course, it’s only natural to wonder what craters or bumpy roads may lay ahead as the moon slowly reveals herself – and as we slowly reveal the many layers of our story.
The first quarter moon signals the balance between light and dark. It serves as a breakthrough point between our potential and our tendency to hold back (out of doubt or fear).
So how does this affect your creative process? How does it impact the writing of your memoir?
Grab your journal and pen – and prepare to be gently guided into:
- A clearing exercise that allows you to identify what needs to be released or shifted as you create the space to write with more awareness and clarity.
- An exploration of what could be possible when you give yourself permission to create from the fullest expression of you.
- A closer look at the obstacles that keep you from stepping into your full potential as a writer.
- An understanding of the ebb and flow of emotions that can get activated during the creative process.
- An awareness of how curiosity serves as a way of moving out of creative darkness and into the light of possibility.
Join Linda as she chats with Tina Games, “The Moonlight Muse” – exploring ways that you can navigate the ebb and flow of the creative process using the moon as a metaphor.
