I keep coming back to this one simple idea that seems to form a foundation of how it works.
Because it will form the basis of our activation this week, and because it’s a useful concept in any case, I want to share it with you now.
Magnetic and Dynamic
Think of something you’ve produced from start to finish. Something you’ve conceived of, taken action on, and released out into the world.
No doubt it originated in an idea. This is the “magnetic” part.
And then it moved along a channel on its way to manifestation, which is the “dynamic” part.
I like the terms magnetic and dynamic to represent these concepts but a few other related words and concepts are:
|right brain||left brain|
So in the context of creating, the magnetic can be thought of as getting in touch with our light, and the dynamic as actually expressing it.
If you look at the creative process as a timeline with the beginning being the initial conception (magnetic), and the endpoint being the final form, it’s as if there were a channel of energy moving the creation from its beginning all the way to its completion and release (dynamic).
Both parts of the process need to be operating well for creation to take place seamlessly.
There are many ways for us to enhance our ablities in both areas. I’ve already written about quite a few of them on this blog and I’ll continue to do so since the process of Emergence uses both of them, especially the magnetic.
Being conscious and aware of how you operate magnetically and dynamically can go a long way toward streamlining your own process. You can look objectively at where you may have weaknesses to strengthen, or strengths to optimize.
Integration or the Dance of Creation
Also important is how you integrate the two.
To really move something along the channel requires being in constant touch with both the inspiration or imaginal (magnetic) and the practical considerations and actions (dynamic).
It doesn’t just happen once. There are really a number of mini-cycles that take place within the over-arching conception-to-release cycle.
I like to think of it as a dance between our magnetic and dynamic. It’s an art, not a science, as one needs to constantly respond to the other. And in my experience, that’s what creation is about!
Creating requires that you keep your idea dancing along the channel as you help it manifest into form.
And that’s where the fun is, and the life!
That’s how and when you feel that life force coursing through you and you feel fully alive!
Dancing in the Light
A lot of the stumbling blocks I’ve run into are related to the dance.
If you’ve had difficulty manifesting your creations, you can shine some light on your dance steps.
Ask yourself if there’s anywhere in this channel where you regularly get hung up.
Some possible stumbling blocks are:
- “shoulds” that squeeze the joy out of your process
- lack of information (without enough drive to push through)
- any kind of “clog” (within you or “out there”)
- things just stop
- your focus dwindles off
- any deterrent that you don’t have the motivation to examine or get past
- you lose interest along the way
- you just move on (and you may not even notice)
- you make it so “big” that you get overwhelmed
- you never even start it
- lack of trust in what your intuitive/creative conception
- too much “editing”
Ah, the list could go on and on.
But here’s something worth doing.
Simply bring the stumbling block into the light. Make it conscious to yourself. Become aware of it.
It’s an important first step in moving past it and is sometimes all that’s needed!
Join Us For the Creation Activation!
Another way to keep (or get) your creative process flowing is to participate in a Holographic Emergence™ session.
And you can try one free this week by joining us in our group session — our Creation Activation!
Let’s clear the way so we can create spectacularly!
We’ll enhance the magnetic and dynamic, and get the two dancing together to our own music.
That’s the focus of this week’s activation. (An “activation” is my name for a group Holographic Emergence session. If you want to know more about what an activation is, you can see my “Spring Activation” announcement.)
Join us! It’s FREE and it’s taking place this Thursday at 10:30a MT.
At that time, the Sun and Moon will be “dancing” together in Cancer (the Moon’s sign) in Pushyami, a very auspicious nakshatra. Next month they’ll both be in Leo (the Sun’s sign), a very creative part of the zodiac. Let’s get ready so we can take advantage of that time that is so supportive of creating!
This free activation is for newsletter subscribers only.
If you’re already a subscriber, you’ll find the registration link in the latest newsletter (from last Thursday — check your inbox).
If you’re not yet a subscriber, you can subscribe here, and you’ll be emailed a link to the newsletter that has the registration link.
Finally, if you’re a regular reader but really really don’t want to subscribe to my newsletter, just send me an email and ask me to register you. That works too.
And now: Do you have any tips about ways to enhance or streamline our creative process? As always, I’d love to hear ‘em! Thank you!
