Just found a 12-year-old file with this message that I wrote (after a meditation) from my "creative source" to my conscious self in the midst of a particularly challenging and fear-based time for me in my business:
Walk confidently toward the promised land of your higher dreams that you know is there. Walk confidently through the fog of fear, doubt and the unknown. Walk confidently through the mine fields of imaginary threats and see them for what they really are. Don't make boulders out of wads of paper. Know you won't die or be irreparably wounded. Most importantly, know you will receive support along the way. Movement is the key. Go for it. Go for it with the courage, the belief, and the action to get there.
That guidance was right - movement was the key...and there's been lots of support along the way. If I were to write this now, there would be more to add that I have learned over the years through living into this message (definitely not always confidently) and coaching creativity...like how support would not only show up, it would show up in the most magnificent, emergent and unexpected ways; how that voice is part of our fullest creative aliveness; how it is about life generating new creative life; how none fo us are alone in the journey of our creative calling (even though it fees like it at times); and how that inner voice needs space, time and attention to be heard and known.
That inner "aliveness voice" within us always carries a more expanded, life-giving knowing about what is true and possible for us than the limited viewpoints our conscious minds carry at any given time. The key is feeling the fear, doubt, etc...and moving forward anyway.
