I have been previously implementing a whole new creative project. A lot of energy and enthusiasm being spent. Lots of productive time making new things. Bouncing my ideas from others in the coaching group. But each and every time I set about a whole new journey of creating, I’ve found myself becoming angry.
How does this happen? What is this anger about? What is happening?
My mentor and that i were discussing this. She wondered aloud this thought: “It seems like the tender spots are what your location is angry”… yeah. Very tender. The anger is saying something.
Finding that it is hard to keep a project using anger throughout, I want to to find a way to operate “through” or “around” the anger. So, I distract myself with painting, stories, dancing… something creative, but more mundane as well as a bit mindless. This creative energy frees up my thoughts to ensure that I could “trick” my anger into thinking We are busy along with other things.
When I do that I think of it as “spinning”. Spinning jogs my memory in the stories in the spinning wheel where I will get busy creating (much like the wool for the wheel). This paves the way to metaphor and takes me from my should “control” a job.
While i began drawing this image… of your spinning wheel… I thought of “turning straw to gold”. I used to be reminded again in the story of Rumpelstilskin. You realize, the one… the millers daughter, the daddy says “she can spin straw into gold” for the king… as well as the king desires to see this… if she cannot, she will be placed to death… ? Then, an unusual little man appears. He tells her they can spin straw into gold… however it will be at an amount to her.
I discovered the story and study several versions from it. It resonated with me. However, because i usually do, I could to logically “organize” the storyline. This caused me to become more frustrated, when i had not been seeing or feeling what this story was trying to inform me.
I really returned to my “dream capture” work. I just read the storyplot just as if it were a fantasy I had had. Then, Used to do these:
Listed out each of the characters
Listed the “key words” from the story that resonated with me
Re-read each word and wrote what that word meat in my opinion in my unique circumstances
And after that… I began to notice what the story was saying. This is what I stumbled upon
The tiny man (Rumplestilskin)=anger/creative fire/naming
The miller’s daughter=rest/creativity/giving
Spnning wheel=creating/spinning/asking for help
The baby=creation (project, artwork… )
While each one of these “characters” posseses an independent role, Every one of the characters create one “psyche” for me personally. We have all of such qualities within us.
In order to create something, it requires much energy… and far rest is also needed. We have to give of ourselves and request help.
In the end, your baby exists and we will not cease. It really is our “creation” and we’re amazed at might know about make. Also, the required steps to obtain there.
What did I learn?
That story resonates with me at night. Also, this story will repeat itself time and again as I continue to create, rest, other people and complete a job. Even though Rumpelstilskin stomps himself in to the ground after the story, that little man will be back… and next time, I’ll know his name.
