Creating Connections Between Creatives

How PSYCH-K® Unlocks your Superpower!

2015: I was lost! I had been a single mum for 27 years. All my energy had gone into providing for my 2 children who had both taken off overseas for an extended period of time. They had always been my compass – my “true north” and around which revolved every decision I made in life.

With such a void in my life, I needed to find “me” again. I decided since travel was what had always brought me joy by opening my mind to new places, people and experiences, I would set off on a 6 month adventure taking in parts of Sth East Asia, Europe and North Africa.

Reconnecting with my creative self

As part of the journey to finding “me” again, I made a decision to honour my creative self and commit to completing 100 Days Of Creativity – to do something, anything, creative for 100 days, and post my work on line.

A New Discovery

Journaling each day has always been natural for me however, it took on a new dynamic when I combined it with my 100 Days of Creativity challenge, part of which included 49 days walking the Camino di Santiago across the north of Spain (and that’s a whole other blog!)

Each day I would spend between 15 mins and 2 hrs (depending on my schedule) creating “something”. The goal was to do something creative each day, NOT produce a masterpiece

Although this had not been my intention, I soon gathered a following of friends and family via Facebook who enjoyed the journey with me.

This feeling of connection to firstly myself and secondly, my friends, was such a gift!

Sharing the Joy – 30 Creative Days

That’s why I decided to create a group for anyone who feels the calling to connect with their creative spirit and share a journey with other like minded people; to support each other, be accountable to each other and to grow together.

The 30 Creative Days Challenge is open to anyone – you don’t have to see yourself as an artist.

It could be a simple drawing, a photo or poetry, maybe a sand castle you have built! Whatever inspires you today… as long as it’s something you’ve created!

When I was particularly busy, my challenge was reduced to finding “one colour a day” – at least it got a paint brush in my hand and my eyes open to the beauty of colours around me
