I’m grateful for the opportunity to develop new ideas. I get so many ideas on a daily basis. I love sitting in my stillness and letting ideas percolate to see which ones I want to invest my energy in. I write them down and watch the ideas take form. Then, I take action to bring those ideas to life. Developing ideas is a magical process, because when things feel right, everything flows.
I remember the moment my book came into my head. I was walking a labyrinth in Sedona, Arizona. I had struggled with the thought of writing a book about women’s empowerment because what was selling wasn’t in the same energy as what I write. I can only write in my authentic voice, which calls on aligning with the energy of love, abundance, and peace to get out of our own ways and solve problems. As I walked the labyrinth, I watched the ideas start to come together in my mind. Then, like a burst I saw it. I still remember my excitement as I shared my ideas with my agent and she encouraged me to go for it.
I think about how I’ve watched my ideas of butterflies representing transformation, internal gardens representing the mind, and puzzle pieces representing the journey of life growing from material for speaking engagements to enough to fill books. If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve read multiple pieces using symbolism as a back drop to help navigate all life’s twists and turns.
Even writing this blog series, I sit in front of my excel spreadsheet and am amazed at how what started as a lists of topics turned into a series of puzzle pieces that all fit together in a way that makes the whole puzzle make sense, at least to me.
Today, I commit to writing down my developing ideas. Writing down my ideas is like planting the seed. I have to first put them down in the right environment in order for them to grow. Writing down my ideas puts me consciously in the energy of creation, and that’s where I love to be.
I love what happens to my energy as I’m writing down my developing ideas. There’s a beautiful excitement that comes with the process of seeing the possibilities of turning these ideas into reality. I feel AWE just thinking about it. It’s time to get started! I feel some percolating as I type these words.
