Tapping into Creativity

Put down the device, step away from the news and let yourself dream.  Innovation comes from beyond what has already been seen and done.  It comes from allowing yourself to open to something inside of you.

 In 2010, I did my first fire walk.  To say it was transformative is an understatement.  The next morning, I wrote my first poem and stepped forward as a writer. 

The fire supported me in letting go of the rampant fears running my show. The act of walking on hot coals brought me past the limits of my mind. 

 My rampant voices had blocked me from hearing the voice of my heart, the seat of my inspiration.  And by moving beyond the limits of my mind, it didn’t seem odd to decide at 26 that I was going to be a writer, even with my background being math and science.

 Coincidently, or not, I was asked to be part of a writer’s group, and with my yes began my relationship with creativity.  A relationship I have learned, that operates just like all other relationships, thriving with attention and care.

The more I paid attention to and honored my creativity, the more easily it came.  The more I allowed space for my heart to speak up and shared my voice, the more interesting my creative world became. 

The mind is used to running the show and needs lots of encouragement to take a break and open to innovation. 

Breathwork meditation is a tool to support the slowing of the mind, allowing space for creativity to enter.   Breathwork meditation is designed for the ever-busy minds of today.  Using the breath to drop us out of the mind and into the heart, breathwork brings forward the ideas and possibility that take one past the ordinary.

“A child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It’s only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate.”  ― Steven Pressfield

It’s great to choose moments to become informed and inspired by what is out there.  And it is special to choose even more moments to let yourself dream.  The world is craving your innovation and creativity, so take time and let yourself create.

“We can not solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” –Albert Einstein

My Hike With Creativity

 
 

My Hike With Creativity

My relationship with creativity often mimics my relationship to hiking a mountain.

Sometimes I charge full on and exhaust myself before I make it to the top.

Sometimes a slow and steady pace is just what I need.

Sometimes I start with dread, need to rest along the way, or don’t even finish at all.

And other times I am so charged with energy and enthusiasm that I wish there were a second or third peak I could climb.  If it were Everest before me, I would laugh with excitement.

As with the mountain, so it is with creativity.

Always there. 

Providing a platform for me to decide how I want to engage that day. 

Offering me a variety of terrain.

Calling out to me to come play.

Reserving judgment for the way I show up that day.

Inspiring my life experience to be more.

Every hike is different.

Every day with creativity is different.

No matter what kind of hike I end up taking, I never regret showing up and putting one foot in front of the other.

LA breathwork opportunities

I’m desiring to prolong my enjoyment of leading the Wednesday night class, so the final class will now be September 3rd. Regular time and price.  You are however invited to bring a snack and hang out afterwards for a goodbye if you would like.

In addition to my Wednesday night class this week I will be leading breathwork at The Hub Sunday the 31st at 6:15 http://thehub-la.com

Other fun opportunities in LA are the upcoming Healer Trainings.  I am super excited to be co-leading with Nathaniel Shipp HT 1, a one-day version on Friday September 5th.  We will be exploring deepening our relationship to our intuition and how that serves us in all areas of life as well as gaining clarity around our energy, what is ours and what is not.  Life gets a whole lot easier when we aren’t processing other people’s shit.

This one-day segues into HT 2 that weekend, the 6th and 7th, which will be lead by our teacher David Elliott.  HT 2 rocks most people’s world and I highly recommend it.  Doing both as a three-day combo is an awesome dive in and would be my choice.

Payment plans are totally available just reach out and ask.  And of course feel free to ask me any questions about it all.

First link here is a more detailed description of Healer Training 1 and second link is the description of Healer Training 2.

Damn I’m going to miss you all and can’t wait for you to visit Aspen!

Taking the breathwork further!

Breathwork goes way beyond the simple pranayama breathing technique that is used as a tool to connect us to the essence that is our soul.  Those having experienced the breathwork understand that it is a portal into so much more.

My teacher David Elliott has created a series of trainings to help us dive into the more while learning how to share the breathwork with others and connect to the healing abilities we have.  We are all healers, it is simply a matter of awareness.

These trainings are rich in information and experience as well as being a powerful community experience.  It is truly a gift to connect with these souls choosing to live with open hearts.

Hearler Training 1 starts up this August 8th-9th and will be lead by Nathaniel Shipp and Marlize Joubert, two truly extraordinary teachers and beings whom David has worked with closely to share this work.

HT 1 provides a vital foundation of understanding our energy, our intuition and how Spirit will always show up for us.  The classes don’t need to be taken in order, however it is a POWERFUL experience to move through the series of trainings in order and with the group.  Detailed information is HERE and please reach out with any questions.  (Payment plans can easily be worked out with the teachers.)

David will be back to lead HT 2 September 6th-7th.  This will no doubt be a special one and if your relationships (love, money, creativity, your body, etc) are crying out for awareness and deepening HT 2 holds lots of understandings and support in these areas.  Details HERE.

There is also an option to take a one-day Healer Training 1 Sept. 5th with Nathanial Shipp and ME!  A very fun segue into the HT 2 weekend.

Wednesday night breathwork at 730 pm will continue throughout August!  And lots of exciting changes are happening at The Quest to allow for more breathwork classes, updates to continue.

Much much love!

Eliza

And Costa Rica is right around the corner for any fly by the seat of your pants people that want to still come!  Details 

The Winds of Change

The mountains call and I have learned to listen to this call.  It is the same call that pulled me across the country to Los Angeles where anything is possible and the city is filled with angels.  

The community here for me is a community of angels.  A community that continually inspires me and keeps me focused on how much the power of love is building.  

So of course I will be back often!  And there will be many opportunities to come play with me in the mountains and other enticing places I'm being called to explore.  

LA has provided tools and resources that have helped me understand deeply who I am and what I am here to do.  With this solid foundation, I set off to share this in a mixture of sadness and excitement.  The sadness reminds me of how deeply I have connected to the people here and the ocean, the mountains, nature.  The excitement shows me it is time to spread my wings and let the winds of Spirit guide me into the unknown.

I look forward to the ever interweaving play of our lives and hearing about where the winds take you.  Stay connected and come visit!

My home base will be Aspen, CO and I will regularly be traveling down to Denver and Boulder. I would love to connect with people you know in that area so please share.  And make sure to sign-up for this specific blog as I will be discontinuing my other and all updates will be shared here.  Below are the details for my remaining time in LA and the Costa Rica retreat I am a part of mid-August.

Much love,

Eliza Rose
