Time to create

I am writing this message two weeks before it goes out, because when it reaches you I'll be in Sedona, teaching Dancing with Angels! I couldn't be more excited! It seems like just yesterday that it was May and I was finishing up the first one. Five months seemed like such a long time back then. I felt like I had all the time in the world to edit the sound files from the May class and make them available on CDs. It takes 80+ hours for me to create a 4CD set when I look at editing, artwork, production, web changes, store updates, etc. Back in May, it felt like I had plenty of time.

However, months passed and I wasn't even inspired to work on the CDs until a little over a few months ago! And then when I got sick a few weeks ago, I was pretty sure I would never be able to release the CD set today as I had been hoping to do.

I needn't have worried! Within a week, lessons learned, I was feeling back to normal and after so much rest, the editing went very smoothly, and of course, God's timing was perfect! I was listening to the May class while preparing and getting inspired for the one today! It made perfect sense. And although it was time consuming and I did spend a few solid weekends working on it non stop, time passed without me even noticing because I was so consumed and inspired by the project.

Sometimes seemingly large and impossible tasks get put off because we're simply not inspired. Sometimes however, we put them off because we feel intimidated or life gets in the way. Whatever the reason, the minute inspiration hits for any of your dreams, jump on it! Prioritize it! Make time. Ride the waves of inspiration when they hit because energy breeds more energy, and as you spend your life force doing things you love, you get more.

I still feel a little intimidated every time I start a large CD set or a book. It is a huge process to create and edit them, not to mention all the rest of the work. And yet it is SO satisfying to see a dream take place, and a project that was once just an idea, turn to something tangible that I can hold in my hand.

Do you have something you want to create? It might be a book, a work of art, a foundation, a peaceful evening and a luscious dinner, time for a massage, time for meditation, a life in which you wake up rested? Whatever it is, try to take small steps until the dream begins to pull you in and then you can coast on these waves of inspiration, taking one more step, and one more, until the dream becomes close and closer to reality!
