Faery Message for Thursday 24th March 2011
Penelope is the Inspiration Faery. If you are involved in any kind of creative enterprise, she would like to speak to you.
Sometimes, we can take our creative ideas a little bit too seriously, and expect ourselves to be absolutely perfect - we must write the perfect poem or story, paint the perfect picture, make the perfect culinary masterpiece, create the perfect garden, make the perfect tune, sculpt the perfect piece, design the perfect dress etc etc. The problem with this is that when we inevitably fail to achieve these high expectations, our creative energy can very easily sour within us.
If this is your tendency at play (and I'll be the first to raise my hand!), then Penelope is encouraging you to lighten up a bit. It is important to have fun with your creativity, whatever form it takes. Pay attention to your dreams, pay attention to your day-dreams and actively seek visions and inspirations. Stop trying so hard and focus more on doing the things that renew and inspire you. Cut loose from the mundane world for a while and give yourself time to enjoy your own fantasies and dreams.
Understand that there is always guidance and inspiration available to you when you are engaged in the creative process. View this as your muse or inner genie and if you can step back for a moment and allow that inspiration to break through from your subconscious to your conscious mind, you will be amazed at the results.
