Walk Up To The Go Creative! Show Episode 14: The Principles of Conscious Creation

This week the show is all about the principles of conscious creation. As many of you know, I’m working on the Creativist Club with moderator Sondra Turnbull and over the coming weeks, we are going to be talking you through the process of what happens as somebody takes a creative intention through the process of conscious creation, as supported by the club. Sondra’s going to be bringing her own intention through the process, for us all to observe and learn from. On Sunday, to set the scene, I’m talking about setting good intentions, diving deep, honing focus, going public, turning…

How To Turn Failure Into Creative Failure: The Go Creative! Show Episode 13

“Try, fail, try again, fail better.” Samuel Beckett’s advice is the topic of today’s show. Yes we all fail but it’s what we do with the fail that counts. In this week’s show, I share two of my recent “fails” – each of which warranted a different response – and how I dealt with them. And look at how to turn our response to failure away from doubt or despair to making it work as part of the process. And we also have Sondra, Creativist Club Studio Moderator, dropping by to get some more answers to your questions about the…

Walk Up To Episode 13 of The Go! Creative Show: How To Turn Failure Into Creative Failure

Ever failed? Yeah, me too. Everyone who’s ever created anything meaningful will tell you that failure is totally part of the process. Our aim as creativists is not to eradicate failure but to harness it, to use it to fuel the next step of our inexorable, non-negotiable, not-gonna-let-this-derail-me progress towards creating what we truly want. This means treating failure as a mirror, a feedback system. In this week’s Go Creative! Show I’ll be talking about two recent fails of mine, one everyday, one that felt rather epic. And exploring how they differ — and should be treated differently. All failure is…

The Go Creative! Show Episode 6: The Psychology Of Creative Success

To succeed in conscious creation, — turning a wish, want or creative intention into a lived experience — you need to understand creative psychology. Creatives — and creativists — often define success differently and work from different values and intentions to those promoted by the conventional world. We each have our own version of what success looks and feels like for us. In this show, I’m talking about the psychological underpinnings of conscious creation: an understanding of the difference between “con-state” (surface, head-centred thought) and “create-state” (deeper, soul-centred action); the importance of a can-do attitude to creativity; and the seven…
