Dare to Be Creative

“All you need to express how Life is running through Your veins is a dedicated Moment, a Canvas, a solid Intention and your willingness to Open up.”

If you dare to be creative, you dare to be you and that’s a gift to yourself and to the world.

Dedicated moment

Now is perfect.

But of course you’re busy reading all this, so it’s probably a little less than perfect. Yet, you’re searching for something. You can feel it itching right beneath your skin or in the back of your throat. And perhaps…something is holding you back to just Be Creative.

Canvas

You could very well set up a creative space for yourself, select a canvas of choice and get to it with a sparkling intention. I have done that a million times and I’m sure you’ve done that before too. Remember singing in the shower? Drawing doodles on the rainy window? Or stacking the wood of an outdoor fire in a particular way?

Indeed! Your canvas doesn’t necessarily need to be a piece of paper or painting cotton. It might just as well be a Sound or 3-dimensional Space. Natural elements form great canvases too: Water, Fire, Soil, Leaves, Stones…

Intention and Opening up

Intention is key in almost anything you do in Life.  If you have read this far, I bet you have a solid Intention to Be Creative. May it be a need to express a certain emotion, to honor a particular event or to discover the Magic inside yourself.

In order to express what lives inside you into the outside world, you’ll need to Open up and Surrender. As scary as that may sound, as blissful it feels.

Whenever you feel ready to Be Creative, I’m here to support you.

Okay, lots of possibilities, but as with many things in life, it sometimes simply is more relaxing or more fun when someone else is taking care of everything, and you can lean back and surrender to the process.

Discover your options to set up your Creative space:

  • Artistic Date with yourself
  • Individual Creative session guided by me
  • Creative Flow session guided by me

Colorful blessings,
Frouke

Dare to be Creative. Dare to be you!

Act as if nobody is watching

Tall pine trees in a Belgian forest standing in a circle with an empty space in the middle. The Trees whisper "Act as if nobody is watching" and true magic happens.

“Act as if nobody is watching”

Out of nowhere this phrase comes up in my mind while heading off for my walk into the forest. With every step I take it sinks and eventually drowns in a puddle of new thoughts. Beautifully colored leaves, insects, people, clouds and what not distract my mind while I wander off.

Unconscious mind

Suddenly I find myself walking passed a bunch of tall pine trees. In the corner of my eyes I notice that one tree is cut, right in the middle, leaving a wide open space. I stop, take a few steps back and give the scene a closer look. I’m now sensing the trees and this particular composition with my belly and my outer bodies. The longing to go stand on top of the stump arises from deep within me. In the split second between me becoming aware of the longing and the moment my being is getting ready to come into action, my unconscious mind kicks in and loudly shouts inside my head: “You are not allowed to go off track!” followed by “What if somebody sees you?!”

“Act as if nobody is watching!”

Uhm…what??

The Trees are calling

That clearly came from the Trees themselves. I quickly decide to go for it before my entire “good-girl-programming” gets the chance to fully launch. Carefully I find my way to the stump. I’m standing tall, feet glued to what once was a giant tree, and I close my eyes.

Space

An immense space is surrounding me, a sky high field of forces. All in the Universe present in that little part of the forest. My heart picks up on a vibrational field built by the trees surrounding me.

Suddenly, footsteps were approaching. I don’t move. I stand tall as a tree, feel every footstep vibrate through the air. Notice how the sound changes as they walk passed me and continue their journey. The difference between the moving ability of that person and the standing quality of the trees becomes apparent. The sensation is massive. Magical. Peaceful. Timeless.

As I soak in every sensation this experience gifts me, more footsteps approach me but I don’t recall more details of them.

I become the tree.

Tree-full-of-love,
Frouke

Dare to follow your intuition, it will never cease to amaze you!

Deepen your connection with Nature

We’re all capable of developing our “13th sense” (so to speak) through which we can communicate with Nature all around us. It just takes practice and patience (similar to training a muscle). And sometimes all you need is good company (getting started at the gym seems way more feasible together, right?). If what you read above resonates and makes you curious to experience these kinds of moments yourself, you’re very welcome to book a Shamanic Integration Session. We’ll dive into the forest, we’ll sharpen your intuition, and we’ll make sure you go home with the tools at hand to further practice your 13th sense on your own, or with friends.
