I’ve been taking care of a whole new creative project. Plenty of energy and enthusiasm being spent. Plenty of productive time making something totally new. Bouncing my ideas from others inside a coaching group. But each and every time I embark on a fresh journey of creating, I’ve found myself becoming angry.
Why does this happen? What is this anger about? The proceedings?
My mentor and I were discussing this. She wondered aloud this thought: “It appears like the tender spots are where you stand angry”… yeah. Very tender. The anger is saying something.
Finding that it is sometimes complicated to hold a project picking anger all over, I want to to find away out to operate “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 releases my head so that I will “trick” my anger into thinking I am busy with things.
While i make this happen I call it “spinning”. Spinning reminds me in the stories of the spinning wheel where I could outside, hurry up creating (much like the wool about the wheel). This paves the way to metaphor and takes me from my need to “control” a task.
After i began drawing this image… of an spinning wheel… I believed of “turning straw to gold”. I was reminded again of the story of Rumpelstilskin. You know, the one… the millers daughter, the daddy says “she can spin straw into gold” for the king… as well as the king desires to see this… and if she cannot, she is going to be placed to death… ? Then, a strange little man appears. He tells her the guy can spin straw into gold… but it will show up at a price to her.
I ran across the storyline and focus several versions than it. It resonated beside me. However, while i usually do, I used to logically “organize” the storyline. This caused me to get more frustrated, when i wasn’t seeing or feeling what this story was attempting to figure out.
And so i went back to my “dream capture” work. I just read the story as if it were a fantasy I needed had. Then, I did so the next:
Listed out all the characters
Listed out the “key words” in the story that resonated with me
Re-read each word and wrote what that word meat if you ask me within my current situation
And then… I started to see what are the story was telling me. Can do for you I came 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 these “characters” comes with an independent role, Every one of the characters create one “psyche” personally. Just about everyone has of those qualities within us.
In order to make something, it requires much energy… and rest can also be needed. We should give of ourselves and request help.
In the long run, a child is born and we will not stop. It really is our “creation” and we are surprised about might know about make. Also, what must be done to acquire there.
What did I learn?
Until this story resonates when camping. Also, this story will repeat itself time and again because i continue to create, rest, people for assistance and finish a job. Even though Rumpelstilskin stomps himself in to the ground after the story, that little man will likely be back… and then suddenly time, I am going to know his name.
