"If you are not feeling [and utilising] conscious Fear, you are not creating."
Alongside the Magician, the Creator is another of the archetypes that emerge from field of Fear.
It may sound like an absurd statement to the mind that has learned, from an insanely unhealthy society, that Fear is something to be avoided.
Have you ever had an experience where you were asked to give an unscripted speech, to share your opinion on something without any time to prepare, or maybe to make up a bedtime story on the spot for a child?
Did you notice that moment when Fear appears at the idea of not knowing... and then doing something anyway.
This isn't an exercise in avoiding Fear or doing something despite of Fear.
That Fear you just felt is what helps you to take that step into the unknown and pull something out of nothing.
"In order to make something out of nothing, the Creator must first have access to nothing as a resource.
To attain nothing the Creator steps over the limits of the Box [the stories and beliefs that we 'know'] into the unknown.
This is definitely frightening, and the Creator has learned to feel 100% maximum of his or her Fear and to still function."
Our bodies are designed to feel 100% of each of our core feelings. Doing so gives you access to an epic amount of information and energy.
Our culture, to date, has been designed to help us to devalue and numb feelings in favour of the Box.
Now is the time to create a new culture where the full spectrum of human capabilities and resources are valued and activated.
Who do you want to be?
The Creator who uses Fear to navigate pretty much ANY situation or the Prisoner who uses Fear to avoid anything that it doesn't already know?

Some say that it is important to hit rock bottom.
To travel deep down to the depths of our grief, our anger and our fears.
If we don't hit the bottom we don't have any solid foundations from which to push up from as we begin to enact the much needed change that has been longing to be seen and engaged for what can feel like an eternity.
Hitting the bottom does not mean defeat for as soon as your toe makes first contact with the solid floor that is 'rock bottom' a relief washes over.
You have landed from the state of falling.
You have made contact with the solid foundation that was there holding you all along.
You can feel your feet on the ground and there you can rest... for a moment... or while... until you are ready to push off and begin to rise...
As there is no where else to go but up from here...
The time has come..
For some time now I've had the visual of my life force energy being made up of 4 streams of energy that all intertwine.
Not mixed together...
Each stream clear in and of itself... while also in a dance with each other.
Each stream having a different flavour, sense, colour and purpose. This purpose being its gifts that are stronger when they are all in flow together.
Like a 4 wire electrical cable or a musical score made up of 4 different tracks.
Each track being music of it's own yet when played altogether, creating a magical symphony that is greater than the sum of its parts.
I love the idea that when our energy is in flow we all are dancing through life to our own unique musical track.
Access to the track is dependent on if there is flow or blocks in each stream of energy.
These streams of energy are our 4 core feelings; Anger, Sadness, Fear and Joy.
In their pure form they have and abundance of magical gifts.
The main ones being Clarity, Connection, Intuition and Magnetic Leadership however there are ALOT more.
When we halt the flow of energy due to cultural stories that tell us these energies are dangerous, disruptive, weak and attention seeking we halt our access to these gifts.
Similar to when Brene Brown says that we can't simply isolate and numb one feeling without numbing them all to some extent.
When the energetic flow of feeling that holds valuable information is squashed it builds up like a dam creating emotional pressure and often physical pain.
And one day, when the dam get's too full for it's container, (your body) it will erupt, overflow, explode, burst out.
You may have experienced what I'm talking about.
You have a choice to take responsibility for your internal dams by creating space to release them safely before they spew out all over someone you love.
