Work space that enhances the creative process is not a luxury, it is a necessity in my professional life.
I’m so excited! I’ve been presented with an opportunity to create a new space for my creativity – yippee!
And I don’t mean just moving things around in the space that I’ve been. (I did that several months ago – turned my office into a studio. Loved that!) I mean there’s a whole new, open blank canvas in front of me on which to paint a brand spankin’ new sacred, creative space for myself.
Anyone who knows me gets that I’m big on sacred space. Adore it. Embrace it every day in a huge ol’ bear hug.
Sacred space is as necessary to my well-being, personally and professionally, as breathing. It’s the container in which I’m able to Be in stillness – a comforting cocoon where the source of my creativity is free to emerge. Without sacred creative space, I shrivel. Period.
Transition is opportunity
Since this amazing opportunity (which first presented itself in the disguise of a major disaster, by the way) has come calling at my door, I’ve been doing some pondering. I’m energized – no, electrified – by the realization (real-eyes-ation) that I am standing in an open doorway looking out to the most beautiful horizon of expansive, spacious, endless possibilities stretching further than the eye can see!
I’m in a time of transition, and this opportunity for changing my surroundings is an outward expression of all that is changing within me. And what is around me inspires and informs my inner journey in return.
As I contemplated my own exciting path and this recent opportunity to create new sacred creative work space, I wondered: what do others’ creative spaces look like? A creative studio – what’s in it?
So I ask you, what’s your creative space like?
Do you immerse yourself in your sacred workspace in an office, a studio, a corner of your bedroom, a quaint little cafe?
What are your absolute essentials for your sacred, creative space? What does it feel like? Look like? Smell like? Sound like?
What makes it yours? What makes it sacred?
I’m over-the-moon delighted to hear your comments below about your sacred creative space as I prepare to re-create my own!
