Week 7’s Secret from the 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women by Gail McMeekin is consulting with guides. In our creative process, we are not alone. We have creative cohorts who inspire and support us. These may be people that influenced us when we were younger, like family members or teachers. They could be current people in your life, like friends, partners, coaches and mentors. Or they could be people you don’t even know but admire from afar.
I’ve been fortunate to have so many supportive people in my life. From my high school speech coach who encouraged me to “be big,” to my creative blogging circle of friends who I’ve been connecting with every other week.
I created a visual map to pay homage to my guides – past, present and future. There are so many people who inspire me that I didn’t finish including all the names, groups, books and experiences that have been important in my life to date. I look forward to continuing to add on to this piece and summoning the wisdom of this circle of support.
How do you acknowledge and tap into the insights and inspiration of your guides?
