I recently heard Elizabeth Gilbert speak on the topic of creativity … and since then I’ve been thinking A LOT about how creativity supports us in feeling healthier and more alive. The universe is constantly creating (think about the plants, stars, asteroids, really the whole universe is constantly shifting, changing, growing, evolving and being creative) so when WE are being creative, it’s like we are aligning with the natural laws of the universe. It’s turning out to be an incredible antidote to depression, grief, illness and anxiety, among other ailments.
It was so fun to dive into this topic with artist Devon Walz talk about the rich topic of creativity on this week’s episode…
In this episode we discussed:
How Devon stays focused, motivated and continually inspired in the creative process
Her story of moving through depression, undergoing a lot of healing and learning how to do art and business in a way that works for her as a result
The role of trust and intuition in the creative process + life in general!
Staying committed to personal truth while building a business in our masculine, fast-paced society
The role that emotional work + self-care continues to play in art and business
The main blocks holding back creatives and visionaries from doing their work
Why we need artists + visionaries to be doing their work in the world and the role they're playing for all of us
How art aids in shifting the consciousness
How Devon faces her fears in the realm of creativity + entrepreneurship
