How do we bring our hearts to the world, to our friends and loved ones and community and indeed, everyone walking down the street?
Here’s some techniques I just heard from Amber, ecstatic birth coach, and as creativity is a birthing, you’ll find these techniques very effective for birthing process of your own creations.
Amber: When you feel all of it, and release the resistance to the pain, then the pain transforms into ecstasy. The process is one of constant release of resistance, of any holding in your body. Where’s the tension? Release. Where’s the tension? release. release. Release holding on to a feeling. Release not feeling the pain. Release. Step out-of-the-way of the creative process.
Noah: The creative process is creative. It is something bigger than I have been before. So of course there is pain, but it need not be pain. Pain is my resistance to fully experiencing a new sensation– a sensation of a larger self, a self that can hold more experience.
Amber: Mmm. When we feel it, and release, we can have a whole new experience of birth, of pain, of ecstasy.
Noah: So my resistance, procrastination, fear when I sit down to write, to create something I have not created yet, to do something new, this is a resistance to a new sensation, to being open to greater forces, but I don’t need to experience this as pain, if I keep scanning for the tension, and then releasing it, constantly, and allowing the creative process to work its way through the darkness, the mystery.
How are you holding on in your life?
