Helping You Create Your Best At Home, At Work, and in Life

Be Light


We rely on creativity to meet the challenges of each day and in all our roles and relationships. It's creativity that helps us live purposeful, meaningful, beautiful lives. Our daily hustle can push away our creative impulse, and when we're stressed, we can feel down and disconnected from our creative intuition, or muse, or soul, or highest Self.

During a time of crisis, it’s easy to get stuck in negative, fearful, and even fight/flight patterns. Yet, it’s also a time to rise and use your talents and strengths in ways you may not have imagined you could. By believing in possibilities and inviting in space for what’s next, we can feel more calm and optimistic, and this is fertile ground for our imaginations to sprout and grow our creative seeds.


When pessimism, anxiety, doubt, or fear keep you from creating, you can try practicing yoga, meditation, breathing, singing, dancing, drumming, or anything that calms your revved up nervous system. Making breathing space in our minds, hearts and bodies, we can then better shift from dark and stuck places to feeling lighter and more spacious. Suddenly, the muse may reappear and ideas and solutions to our problems often spontaneously pop in. 


Look how furloughed workers are turning their energy to making face-masks from everything from old bandanas to bras; companies are switching gears to make much needed medical equipment; nurses are suggesting ways to hook two patients to breathing machines designed for one; doctors and scientists are exploring new virus remedies and vaccines; yoga teachers and spiritual leaders are finding ways to lift and support their communities remotely; children are learning from home and teachers are using technology to reach them; artists of all genres are sharing what they can; delivery services are finding ways to get us what we need; neighbors are supporting and connecting using social distancing; moms are throwing virtual birthday parties… and the list goes on.


So stay hopeful and look from and on the bright side. Remember to make space for your light to shine in so you can create from your best and lightest place. Create and be light today.
