I have already been implementing a whole new creative project. Plenty of energy and enthusiasm being spent. A great deal of productive time making something totally new. Bouncing my ideas off others in the coaching group. But whenever I set about a brand new journey of developing, I have found myself becoming angry.
Each and every this happen? What is this anger about? The proceedings?
My mentor and that i were discussing this. She wondered aloud this thought: “It seems like the tender spots are where you are angry”… yeah. Very tender. The anger is telling me something.
Finding that it is not easy to hold a project going with anger all over, I wanted to find away out to be effective “through” or “around” the anger. So, I distract myself with painting, stories, dancing… something creative, but more mundane along with a bit mindless. This creative energy frees up my thoughts so that I’m able to “trick” my anger into thinking I will be busy along with other things.
When I make this happen I refer to it as “spinning”. Spinning jogs my memory with the stories of the spinning wheel where I’m able to get busy creating (such as the wool on the wheel). This paves the way to metaphor and takes me faraway from my must “control” a job.
Once i began drawing this image… of the spinning wheel… I was thinking of “turning straw to gold”. I used to be reminded again from the story of Rumpelstilskin. You know, normally the one… the millers daughter, the father says “she can spin straw into gold” on the king… as well as the king wants to understand this… of course, if she cannot, she’s going to be put to death… ? Then, an odd little man appears. He tells her the guy can spin straw into gold… but it will be at an amount to her.
I discovered the story and read several versions than it. It resonated when camping. However, because i usually do, I could to logically “organize” the storyplot. This caused me to get more frustrated, as I wasn’t seeing or feeling what this story was attempting to tell me.
Therefore i went back to my “dream capture” work. Someone said the storyplot as if it were a fantasy I had created had. Then, I did the following:
Listed out all the characters
Listed out your “key words” within the story that resonated beside me
Re-read each word and wrote what that word meat in my opinion inside my current situation
And then… I started to get noticable exactly what the story was saying. This is what I ran across
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 of these “characters” has an independent role, Every one of the characters create one “psyche” personally. Most of us have of the qualities within us.
To create something, it requires much energy… and much rest is additionally needed. We must give of ourselves and request for help.
Ultimately, your baby comes into the world and we will not quit. It can be our “creation” and we’re amazed at what we make. Also, what can be done to have there.
What did I learn?
Until this story resonates with me at night. Also, this story will repeat itself over and over as I carry on and create, rest, ask for help and finish a task. Though Rumpelstilskin stomps himself into the ground at the end of the story, that little man will be back… followed by time, I am going to know his name.
