Here are three of the Big Ideas shared during class...
Big Idea #1: Make Friends with your Muse
How wonderful would it be to have a friend you could contact at absolutely any time and had the most wondeful advice? This is entirely possible if you get in contact with your inner muse (aka inner wisdom, inner self, etc) and make friends with her (or him)! Your inner muse has been waiting your whole life to have an amazing friendship with you!
Big Idea #2: Learning to Listen
One of the best ways to start a relationship with your inner muse is to listen to her (and not listen to your inner critic!). Your inner muse has advice for probably every situation and even when you just need a creative word or two. Listening is a great skill that will come in handy when cultivating the relationship with your inner muse.
Big Idea #3: Find Solace in Solitude
This evening's class was called "Commit to your muse and your intuition." What better way to make a commitment to your muse and intuition than to take time for just yourself? Being free from technological influences like your computer, phone, and television is a great first step. Making time for yourself to be alone and think about who you are and what you want to do are extremely important to becoming a succesful woman!
