I have already been taking care of a whole new creative project. A lot of energy and enthusiasm being spent. A great deal of productive time making something new. Bouncing my ideas off others in a coaching group. But every time I start a whole new journey of producing, I've found myself becoming angry.
Each and every this happen? What's this anger about? What is going on?
My mentor and i also were discussing this. She wondered aloud this thought: "It seems like the tender spots are where you are angry"... yeah. Very tender. The anger is telling me something.
Discovering that it is sometimes complicated to maintain an undertaking choosing anger throughout, I want to to find a way to work "through" or "around" the anger. So, I distract myself with painting, stories, dancing... something creative, but more mundane plus a bit mindless. This creative energy releases my head to ensure I'm able to "trick" my anger into thinking I will be busy with other things.
After i do this I refer to it as "spinning". Spinning reminds me with the stories from the spinning wheel where I could get busy creating (like the wool on the wheel). This opens the door to metaphor and takes me far from my need to "control" an undertaking.
After i began drawing this image... of an spinning wheel... I was thinking of "turning straw to gold". I had been reminded again in the story of Rumpelstilskin. You understand, usually the one... the millers daughter, the daddy says "she can spin straw into gold" on the king... and the king really wants to check this out... and when she cannot, she'll be placed to death... ? Then, a strange little man appears. He tells her the guy can spin straw into gold... but it will attend an expense to her.
I ran across the storyline and browse several versions of computer. It resonated with me. However, as I usually do, Cleaning it once a to logically "organize" the tale. This caused me to become more frustrated, as I had not been seeing or feeling what this story was attempting to let me know.
I really returned to my "dream capture" work. I read the tale like it were a goal I had had. Then, Used to do the subsequent:
Listed out every one of the characters
Listed out the "key words" inside the story that resonated beside me
Re-read each word and wrote what that word meat to me in my current situation
After which... I began to notice just what the story was saying. Here is what I came across
The tiny man (Rumplestilskin)=anger/creative fire/naming
The miller's daughter=rest/creativity/giving
Spnning wheel=creating/spinning/asking for help
The baby=creation (project, artwork... )
While each of these "characters" comes with a independent role, Every one of the characters create one "psyche" to me. Most of us have of those qualities within us.
To create something, it will take much energy... and far rest is additionally needed. We've got to give of ourselves and request for help.
Ultimately, a baby arrives and we will not quit. It really is our "creation" and we're amazed at that which you have made. Also, what must be done to have there.
What did I learn?
Until this story resonates when camping. Also, this story will repeat itself over and over as I still create, rest, ask for help and handle a project. Though Rumpelstilskin stomps himself to the ground after the tale, that little man is going to be back... followed by time, I am going to know his name.
