Why what you think matters so much

Dear Creatrix,

How are you doing, today?

I’d like to start, today, by sharing a little conversation I had with my guides the other day about this course.

Because when it comes to exploring my desires, I was very reluctant. I feel so comfortable working day in and out, really I get so much joy from it, and it’s where I feel most confident and safe.

I’ve never lived an extravagant or luxurious life. Really, put me in my village in Ukraine, surround me with some kids and chicken, and I’m as happy as I can be.

And to be honest, I’d most definitely wouldn’t have allowed myself to take a course that centres around my own well-being for a year.

I just haven’t been taking myself seriously enough for that yet – or thought that I’d had the right to enjoy myself, really.

I know and believe that I do and that it’s my purpose in life to do that, consciously, yet subconsciously, until now, I wasn’t quite there.

So, while preparing this lesson and thinking about my desires, and how I’d want to spend my time, and that I would have never invested so much time in myself, like I did in the last year, if it weren’t for this CREATRIX School and my belief that I can’t ask you to do exercises, that I haven’t tried myself – my guides were like:

“Duh, if you had been willing to just learn this for yourself, we wouldn’t have asked you to teach it!”

So they had to catch me with what I love to do, and that is helping others.

Personally, I find it so much harder to see someone else suffer than, to see myself suffering.

But it’s changing now – and not in a bad way.

It’s not that I’m going to be there less for others from now on, but more – because I can also take care of myself now and have found the endless wealth of abundance within me – that I’m so excited to share more of this with you in the future.

We’ll see which form it’s going to take.

But either way, we are always getting what we need and not necessarily what we want – unless what we want is for our highest good and the highest good of all.

I had that realization this week as well.

Whenever we hit the sweet spot of wanting something that is, in fact, for the highest good for all, we get that.

But when we want something that’s not for the highest good for all, we simply get what we need, as that is for the highest good for all.

Which makes everything, every wish, very safe really.

And all of this is relevant to today’s topic as well, as we will be speaking about expectations and how to deal with them.

And then we will begin to make some actionable plans for our lives.

Why is it important to speak about expectations?

Because one of the most devastating things for me to watch is people being disappointed, a…

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.

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.

How to learn to love triggers

In this lesson, we look at why it is so important to unite for a cause and not against someone or something – if we want to create lasting change – no matter how much we might disagree with them or something.

And we look at how love really is always the answer, even, or especially, when someone or something upsets us.

How can we create a real alternative to what we currently have?

In this lesson, we talk about how judgement can be a very useful tool on our journey to becoming our most authentic and best selves and create the communities we wish for, as long as we don’t use it to condemn other people or to establish superiority.

We also think about how every trigger is really here for us to grow, and not something to be afraid of or to avoid and how punishment, just like suppression, doesn’t lead to anything beautiful – and what we can do instead.

On Freedom, Responsibility and our Nature

In this lesson, we look at how freedom and responsibility are linked and what that has to do with consciousness.

And how with a raised consciousness also comes more freedom and thus, by raising our consciousness and finding more inner peace, we also obliterate the need for violence.

And we look at another essential thing, that will help us be more aware in our community interactions – our role as humans in nature, in this world.

What’s your unique superpower?

We start this lesson with a short review of what we’ve learned in the last few lessons to resolve the most common problems found in communities today.

And then we begin to look at our unique superpowers, so we can become more confident in the way we contribute to any community, group or project we choose to support.

What’s your favourite archetype?

In this lesson, we dive deeper into the roles we can inhabit in a group or community setting.

Are you better fit for a creative role or a leading role, or both, or something else?

Knowing what we are good at, and also thinking about what we would like to learn and grow into, can help us immensely to find our place in any community setting and to be able to contribute in the best possible way.

This is also a great resource if you’d ever like to start your own project or company and can help you make sure all vital roles will be covered so that the project can run in the best possible way.

What’s your (stress) archetype?

Of course, things don’t always go the way we want them too.

Sometimes we get stressed, overwhelmed, take on too much or don’t dare to step into our power.

But we can always change and learn and grow.

Looking at the Occasional Archetypes, like the thief, victim, fool, hero_ine, adventurer and so on can help us to recognize these archetypes in ourselves and others and help us to come back into balance, whenever we slip into them.
