Dancing within the Creative Fire

Dancing within the Creative Fire

A few months ago I started getting in touch with a feeling of something simmering within me.  It had been brewing for quite sometime.  I had been feeling like I was off my game for quite sometime, so this little something, even though buried deep inside, felt vastly promising!  I could feel the flames licking at my heels to move me into action, but I still struggled to ignite them enough to feel a push of vital energy behind them.

Tools for the Creative Fire

I dug in with my best tools for stoking the creative fire to see if I could move past simmering and into flame.

I started with inner journey work, partnered with sacred cacao from Guatemala.  I journaled, created mind maps of the many projects that came up for me.  I visited with trusted mentors, potential collaborators, and even complete strangers.

Then I could feel I had a few ideas spark up inside.  I knew enough from the personal work I was doing to understand I should be focusing on something live and face-to-face….an event of some kind.

I explored potential event spaces.  I looked for inspiration and invited the Universe to share direction and wisdom with me.  I looked for clues that I was on the right path and acted like something was going to come of all the Wish-To energy….even though I often still felt just an inkling of what might actually come of my sparks.  I moved forward, playing the part of a person who strongly believed something big was coming my way.

Then, it happened.  Several of my creative ideas started to take shape.  I leaned heavy on my intuition.  If something felt right and easy, I went with that.  If there was a struggle, a snag and hook inside, I looked for the easy button! And within a few of those key  ideas, other ideas came in and shifted the direction so that multiple interests were finding life within a few major projects.

Suddenly, I was on fire!

Sacred TempleKeepers was birthed, a partnership between me and Milena Worsham from Running Buffalo Journeys.

Milena and I have been friends and worked together both in business and for personal development for years.  She lives primarily in Guatemala but through the magic of the internet, we manage to share our spiritual journey in nearly weekly visits.

And so we began planning a series of PlayShops around the cacao we both love and use as part of our regular practice of self inquiry. We blended in creativity, spirituality, and a hefty dose of play.

I hunkered down and rode the wave of productivity to its pinnacle.  Our collaboration was solidified. There were meetings on Skype, back and forth emails, meditating, and brainstorming with additional partners.  Then, long nights to write copy and design promotional materials for the markets we were designing our PlayShops around. I love what we have brought to life together.

As a result, I have been absent from this site and very present in Creativity Tribe live events and collaborations.

Part of me struggled with not keeping Creativity Tribe firmly up-to-date.  But I decided to stay with the momentum.  I think that was the right direction.

I have spent the last several weeks traveling and guiding our special gatherings, as well as offering private sacred cacao sessions. Sunday ended the bulk of this line of events, and the momentum for follow-up events is strong in the air. I am brilliantly tired and joyfully filled up!

Pet Therapy for Creative Stress Relief

Schatzie Studio 404
Happy Friday, Creative Spirits!!!  I’m diving into a bit of pet therapy for creative stress relief this week.

I spent the night cuddled up with one of my StudioCats, Gypsy.  I knew the night might be a bit restless.  I had to go to bed early and get up extra early. So I plugged in my essential oil diffuser, dropped in a bit of Vetiver Oil and tucked myself in.

That is when Gypsy joined me for a snuggle that lasted most of the night.  She curled up extra tight when a morning storm with high winds, lightening, and rain arrived just before dawn.  I think we helped each other with a bit of pet therapy for stress relief.

I started the day thinking about how HAPPY my fur family makes me.  They make me laugh, provide beautiful companionship, and good stories with other family members and friends.

We are fostering a momma kitty and her kittens, and last month fostered a little dog we named Bijou (which means Jewel.)


Our house is alive with little, furry love connections.  Makes for great work breaks and stress busters.

Seeking Sanctuary with Personal Retreat

Seeking Sanctuary

I am going on retreat.  Funny, one of the last times I wrote, I was headed off to a retreat.  This time, instead of facilitating, I am opening myself to the opportunity offered by another.  I am headed to a retreat hosted by Red Tent Experience Retreat.

Red Tent Sisters, Rachel Payne and  Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost, PhD.My first Red Tent was at the opening of 
Things We Don’t Talk About: Woman’s Stories from the Red Tent
with filmmaker Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost, PhD.

Do you know about Red Tents?  
I went to my first about 2 years ago and was so thrilled by the sisterhood I found there that I began investing in that community by offering workshops and “happenings”.  It has become a place of deep meaning and magic for me…..the kind of magic that comes for loving life.

studio for Red Tent

This is my office transformed for a Red Tent event.  See?!  Magic!

Why Retreat?
Retreats invite us to go into a space of exploration.  Depending on the retreat, you may explore a specific topic like an art technique, or you may explore personal growth.  My favorite retreats do both those things, using a theme to take you into a journey of the self.

Water Angel PS2
Preparing for Retreat

I like to do a bit of personal work before a retreat, whether I am offering the retreat or attending.

  • I ask myself what my intention is.
  • I journal and begin exploring the theme or intention.
  • I am encouraging myself to take a break from social media and technology as much as possible in preparation.
  • I gently clean up my diet so that I enter the retreat with a stronger connection to my body.
  • I gather any special item/s I might like to add meaning to may sleeping/teaching space.  I might bring a crystal, picture, decorative cloths, journal and essential oils.

Creating Mini-Retreats

I want to invite you to retreat a bit this weekend. Take the next couple of days to envision what that might look like. Make it simple. Make it easy. But do it. If even for 30 minutes or an hour, allow yourself to retreat into your creative spirit, your beloved sacredness, into the wild within.

The Mystery and Making of Luck

Simply Sacred
I have always been fascinated by the mystery and making of luck.  Friday the 13th is the perfect day for snubbing misfortune and spinning favor!

That interest in the mystery and making of luck comes from the same place in me that wants to dress up as a Gypsy, Witch, or Faerie every year at Halloween…..from my playful, creative spirit.  It’s the same part that struggled with letting go of dress-up and make-believe so much that I pursued theatre all the way through college.  (Now I have a lifetime pass to live the play!)

Master of Play Certificate(Grab your own Master of Play certificate at the bottom of the page,
along with a coordinating journaling prompt.)

Pair my love of play with my belief that we have some hand in creating this life we are living…or at least framing what we are given with an AWE-some frame….and I am left toying with the mystery and making of LUCK.

Secrets to the Mystery and Making of Luck

  • Play the part of the Lucky One.  Play is so powerful, it often leads to reality.  We play the student and often become the expert!
  • Invite Luck into your life….and then look for it to appear.  In life, we get more of what we energize.  Attention is a great way to give energy to something.  So looking for Luck to show up is the best way to discover how Lucky you really are.
  • Create a Lucky Charm!  From an artist’s perspective, that could be anything from a trinket to a painting, a little bowl with gratitude statements tucked away in it.  These kinds of objects may not magnetize Luck to you in the Hollywood magical way we think of in the movies, but consider that they are outward reminders of an inward intention. And intention drives action.

    Good Luck Essential Oil Blend

My Good Luck Essential Oil Blend is a great kind of Lucky Charm.  It reminds us with one of our most powerful senses to let Luck come our way.  And even more than that, the oils I have chosen create shifts in our mood so that we can be in the optimal space for noticing the Luck that is always around us!

 

creative living with essential oils

Add 6 drops of Wild Orange essential oil,
3 drops of Roman Chamomile essential oil,
2 drops of Patchouli essential oil to a 5 or 10 ml rollerball.  
Top off with fractionated coconut oil.

 

Choosing an oil:  I use therapeutic grade essential oils that are held to rigorous testing standards. They are potent, effective, and pure. To visit about more about CreativeLiving with essential oils, contact me at rae@creativitytribe.com

How to Use the Good Luck Essential Oil Blend

This Good Luck Blend can be worn topically by placing it on your wrists (imagine yourself grabbing up gobs of Luck as you do.)  Dab a bit on the back of your neck, at the base of your skull (envision that it turns on your mind to search for the Luck in your life.)  Finally, wear it in the little soft spot where the front of your neck meets the top of your chest.  I call this my oil altar.  Anytime I want to benefit from the aromatic properties of an oil, I place it there.  It is perfectly nestled in line with my nose.

Wear Oils for aromatic benefit

One last thought about using Good Luck Essential Oil Blend.  When you wear it, you become a human diffuser.  Every time someone comes near, you are spreading the good vibes.  Every time you give a hug, you are passing on the Luck.  Have fun!

Walking on Sunshine: Life Beyond Cancer

I am Light India ArieLast year, I created a music playlist on my Kindle called Walking on Sunshine.  I was playing with a bit of music therapy as a creative solution for bringing light into my life during a difficult time.  I had uterine cancer, and an ongoing, nasty story running in my head had been telling me I was going to die.

Rachel Payne in shadow and light.
Dramatic, I know.  But heads do that to us sometimes.

Mine had been spinning the tale for a few decades.  My mother had died at 45, and her father before her also died at 45.  Somehow, the script got stuck playing on a loop in my head too.  I tried time and again to make it stop altogether, but as 45 drew closer, it began to manifest itself.  So when I found out at 44 that I had cancer, I began planting seeds of sunshine in my life more rigorously.

womb doodle(This image is from my Cancer Journey journal.  
Look for today’s journal prompt at the end of this blog entry.)

The stress management playlist had a great collection of sunny songs.  I would listen to it several times a day and run creative visualizations around in my imagination…..

… What life beyond cancer would look like.
… What life beyond cancer would feel like.
… What life beyond cancer would….you name it!

My imagination took me there!

Paths to healing include will, belief, forgive, love, and have faith.
What’s Today?!

Exactly a year ago today, I grabbed my playlist, cranked it up and dressed myself for the ride to MD Anderson Cancer Hospital.

MD Anderson Cancer Hospital

MD Anderson Cancer Hospital

I was due for surgery early in the day.  I felt myself walking into a shadowy path, but I felt filled with light. The songs were alive with all the stories I had layered into them with my imagination, and I relished them like a castaway imagining the succulent meals at the end of their lonely journey.  I was feasting on the sun!

eating the light

The sunshine stories told of the life of my deepest desires…..

….Told of art shows, fabulous paintings that would bless those whose walls they graced, and connections with people who wanted to work with me on making their dreams come true.

…. Told of retreats I would teach, workshops for inspiring personal growth and cultivating connections with something within that was both sacred and creative.

….Told of a deepened relationship with friends, family, community, and that something Greater than us.

Change Your Story, Change Your Life

I walked into the hospital feeling like those new stories out-shone the old story.  So many lovely things clicked into place to make the new stories feel like they were taking form in the present moment.

The surgery went well.
The staff was excellent.
I recovered easily and quickly.

 All was well…..and still is.

Life a Year Later:  Shadow or Light?

When I sat down to write this post, none of that was in the plans.  None of the cancer stuff anyway.

I was excite (am excited) because this is my 200th post on this site.  It coincides with a stream of awesomeness that has taken shape over the last month or so.

Walking On Sunshine: Life Beyond Cancer

I wanted to write about everything that was going right in my life.   When I went to type the title, “Walking On Sunshine”, it made me think about the playlist….and then the cancer….and “Wait a minute!  What is today?”

A quick look at the calendar confirmed the surgery was exactly a year ago.

My subconscious mind must have been toying with it.  Love all those sychronicities.

As it happens, I realized I have created many of my “life beyond cancer” imaginings.  That is exactly what I set out to write about.  My dreams are coming true….and sometimes more quickly than I know what to do with!  Great problems to have, huh?!

Red Tent of Houston at Women's Retreat

I am celebrating!

Last week I taught at a Women’s Retreat, then came home, hung a one woman show of paintings that I am so in love with, sold over half them, have been booked for more art classes, more workshops, more art shows, …… one thing after another is going SO right.  Did I mention, 200 posts?!

I feel like I am…..Walking On Sunshine.

And don’t it feel good!

How I Became a Doodle Daughter

ctclaimcreativity

How I Became a Doodle Daughter

I keep chuckling to myself, remembering how I became a doodle daughter.  That isn’t necessarily something I have considered until today, this hand-me-down gift from my mother.

I am headed off to the Houston area to teach a women’s retreat.
Camp Cullen at Trinity Texas

Camp Cullen at Trinity, Texas

My subject is Art Journaling and specifically doodling.  I have been journaling since I was in 7th grade, consistently, and doodling even longer.

Doodling is one of those things I feel like I inherited from my mother.  I remember her sitting on a tall stool in the kitchen.  It was layered with years of contact paper.  She would talk to her best friend every day while something was simmering on the stove.  As the stories spun out between them, my mother’s hands coiled and dotted corners of mail or note pads.  I sat on the other side of the bar, watching….mesmerized.

I never took art as a youngster.  Drawing didn’t come naturally to me like it did her or my brother.  But I would sit and draw with them on still Saturday mornings at Lake Mathis, feeling like I was part of their special club.  Those were the roots of how I became a doodle daughter.  Some of my fondest memories.

Over the years, I have used little memories like that as a kind of creative communion between me and Mom.  Somehow I can know her better when I am in the rhythm of pen rolling across page. doodle art faith

Doodling can be an escape-from and a returning-to all at the same time!  What better way to celebrate getting away from it all and connecting more deeply with the essence of Self than to revisit that family tradition…..to honor how I became a doodle daughter!

Did my mother ever imagine she would be teaching me to bless my life with the dance of her ball point pen?  Probably not.  She was just doing her thing.  But the truth is, whenever we share our creativity with another, we are giving them permission to share a bit of their vulnerability with us…..with the world!  That is a huge gift.

So I am off to Lake Trinity, about 6 hours North of that little lake where I first enjoyed my doodle tutelage.  I am eager to connect with her there in my heart….between the lines, dots, dashes, and swirls.

happiness doodle of woman holding a heart  She is a doodle daughter.

Here is to my mom….and the legacy of play and expression she left to me.  It is my honor to share that with the women of the Spirit, Mind and Body Women’s Retreat this weekend!

You’ll Never Guess What I am Celebrating Today!

Celebrating You with my heart wide open!

Power of Play at Work

Play at Work Scheduling your Play

Play at Work

When I went out on my own and began Creativity Tribe, I knew I wanted to live what I believed.  I knew building a business that valued play at work would boost my creativity and be an investment in my wellness at the same time.  I knew play at work was imperative for creativity, and creativity was at the heart of my business.

Scheduling Play

I took my play at work seriously, scheduling it into my business life.

  • Play dates with other artists.
  • Engaging play in my artwork.
  • Private dance parties for personal celebrations.
  • Eccentric glasses.
  • Encouraging my inner child in every day interactions.

Oh yes….
and mandatory Crazy Hat Days.

Warm Hat Collage

Hats!  And not just in Winter months.  Any opportunity to show off my head gear, I am the first to dive in.

Summer months, I had a blast wearing goodies during Summer Art Camp.  Art shows and festivals mean fairy garland, and annual Halloween gigs let me show off my handmade witchy garb.

Crazy Hat Day Collage

The power of play isn’t just for me.  Play at work is infectious.  It makes others happy to see me pushing the boundaries of creative play.  They want to join in.  It gives them permission to live more freely.  It links strangers together in the magic that is Creativity Tribe. So I keep it up!

crazy hat pink flamingo

Since my work can often be done on-the-go, it isn’t unusual for me to take crazy hat day out into the world.  On days when I really need to reach high for inspiration, I grab my pipe cleaner pink flamingo hat.  It is the pentacle of play at work!

Creativity Tip: Consider how you can invite playing into your work life.  Even in small ways, play is a powerful asset!

I’ve taken on many challenges for 2015, and I’ll need plenty of focus to accomplish them: art classes, swaps, guest teaching, besides all of my creative endeavors.  I need to focus on clearing out the old to make space for new. Change is good. I feel it’s time to let go of some past I’ve held on to!

Grace: I wanted to remind myself as a special needs mother that sometimes my patience can be tested with therapists, case managers, teachers, parapros, psychiatrists, speech therapy, occupational therapy and many more. I can be challenged in everyday life by people or situations as many of us are, and sometimes, I can get a bit short with people. My goal with grace being my word of the year is to remind myself to try to handle things with more grace and less irritation. We are all doing the best we can with what we have to work with, and I have to just keep reminding myself that.

Also on the creative aspect, Grace as a verb (Graced) means to add beauty or decorate. I have stifled so much of my creativity the past few years, and I have so much creative energy floating around that I really wanted to harness and hone in on tp make some really amazing creations this year.
~Heather Ryno, Nourished Soul Coaching

Balance: My word is Balance, (maybe.. there are so many things I struggle with) but I think balance of the physical, emotional and spiritual. How to learn to take care of myself in these ways so that I can take care of others in the same ways. The balance of doing or thinking for or of me, and also others without one or the other suffering for it.
