What have we learned this month?

Dear Creatrix,

How relaxed are you today?

Did you sleep well?

I’d really love to hear about your experiences with this chapter of the CREATRIX School.

Do you have any questions?

Anything you are still wondering about when it comes to rest, relaxation and integration?

Which of the tips I’ve suggested have you tried?

How did they work?

You may leave a comment below, or post about it in our private Facebook Group.

Today, we are going to review what we’ve learned in this chapter so that we can integrate the most important lessons into our qu_ing persona, also known as our highest or best self – in the next lesson, our last lesson for this chapter.

We started to enter into the field of rest, relaxation and integration by bringing to our awareness, that rest and relaxation have a lot to do with self-love and self-care.

When we rest and relax, we integrate what we’ve learned and experienced and even if it’s invisible, it’s an integral part of our daily growth journey.

To allow ourselves to rest as much as we need to is essential for us to be creative, and so we can reimagine ourselves and our lives and explore all that is possible for us.

If we only allow for the bare minimum of rest that keeps us alive and functioning, we can only do that: stay alive and function – but I think, if you are here, you probably want more from life.

I would even propose that how much a person values their sleep and rest represents the value, respect and love they have for themselves quite well.

Saying that, of course, comes with the reminder that it’s all about balance, and that we all need different things at different times.

When we are sick or depressed, we need to rest more because we have physical or mental health problems to heal.

And equally, there might be other times when we have to take care of a baby or a sick family member, where we also sleep less.

Our body can handle all of that easily, as long as we come back to balance when the emergency is over.

But, what, I think, is the most important lesson here, is that we need the downtime (even when it doesn’t produce visible results) to integrate what we do each day, and to develop new ideas and to flourish.

Rest, sleep and relaxation are integral parts of our lives, and, in a world that is all about visibility, have been much undervalued so far.

What else have we learned?

Family – Week 1 – Pt. 1

Welcome to a New Chapter in the CREATRIX School

In this chapter of the CREATRIX School (or 4-week course) we will explore how we can transform our family relationships and create new possibilities for ourselves and future generations.

Today, we start by opening up to the topic and finding out about how we really feel about our families.

Family – Week 1 – Pt. 2

Family – Week 1 – Pt. 2

What makes a family?

In this lesson, we begin to think more about the possibilities we have when it comes to creating the families we would like to have.

And this is the aim of this course – to find confidence in creating the life you wish for, not the one that you feel is expected of you, or to feel like because you didn’t have certain things growing up, that you can’t have them now either.

We begin looking for what it will take for you to have everything you desire.

Family – Week 1 – Pt. 3

What are your fondest (childhood) memories?

In this lesson, we look at how our culture might have formed our beliefs about what a family should look like, and how we can change them, if we don’t think they serve us any more.

We also look at the things we like to keep, that we are fond of, and that we wish to honour and cultivate.

Your Inner Child & You

In this lesson, we start working with the Inner Child Archetypes, and we look at how we can process feelings and forgive ourselves and others so that we can move on with more freedom.

What will it take for you to go from feeling sad about something, to feeling like you can change it?

Family – Week 2 – Pt. 2

Family – Week 2 – Pt. 2

Your Inner Child & You pt. II

In this lesson, we see how we can use the Inner Child Archetypes to empower ourselves, to see what we would like to work on, to live a more balanced and happier life, and how we can learn what needs to be learned, and heal what needs to be healed, and transform our view of the past and begin to see it as the fuel for the future we want to create now.

Let’s play a game

What would happen if you were to imagine that you, your highest self, chose this life for you?
Why could this be true?

In this lesson, we explore what it feels like to look at our lives, our struggles from a different perspective and see if that can enable us to feel more empowered about the choices we are going to make from now on.

Community – Week 1 – Pt. 1

Welcome to a New Chapter in the CREATRIX School

Starting today, and for the next four weeks, we will think about how we can be at our best with others and how we can use our unique abilities, gifts and talents to contribute to the greater good of all.

As the first week of each chapter in the CREATRIX School is all about assessing where we are, so we can let go of what doesn’t serve us any more, and invite more of what we do want, we start this chapter by looking at our hopes for the future of our world as well as the experiences we’ve made in community so far.

Community – Week 1 – Pt. 2

Community – Week 1 – Pt. 2

What do we mean when we say communities, and why do we need them?

There are different ways for communities to be organized. Sometimes, all people are equal and come together to organize things as equals.

Sometimes, there’s an initiator, or someone who finances the project and other people who organize and implement it.

Sometimes, there are some people who are paid and other people who volunteer.

What are the different kinds of projects or communities you have been involved in, or would like to get involved in, in your life?

How do you envision our future?

It’s easy to think there are so many problems in this world – what am I supposed to do about it – I can’t do anything but make the best of it – and that’s true to some extent – but also not entirely.

Because we’re not just here to get by. We’re not just here to arrange ourselves with what is already here – we are life and a part of the great symphony of life that’s playing right now, in this moment, and we get to contribute to it.
