An Easy Way To Access Your Inner Treasure

The easiest way to access your inner treasure is to go straight to the source.

Envision that you are at a door.

You are holding the key.

When you allow yourself to go inside, envision that a light turns on and allows you to see all of your riches before you. Imagine there are many books with knowledge on every subject, healing crystals, valuable minerals, jewels, and anything else that you would like to have access to.

Imagine there is a seat in the middle of this space for you to contemplate.

Ask yourself both of the following questions:

What makes me worthy of all of this? (All the knowledge and riches you see before you?)

or

What makes me unworthy of all of this? (What’s stopping you from accessing the riches and knowledge that is there?)

For those of you who feel unworthy to access your inner treasure, meditate on those two questions and share the answers with yourself or someone you trust.

Sometimes we don’t realize that we are the ones that hold ourselves back from the inner richness that is our soul. We don’t even realize that we are doing it. Start to examine all the things that tell you that you are unworthy, and try to find some reasons why you are worthy of it.

For example you can say, I am worthy of this richness of knowledge because I am compassionate. I know that I will share this information in ways that will enrich peoples’ lives.

It’s also very interesting to come face to face with all the energy that you have trapped inside about not being worthy.

As you start to allow yourself permission to access this space (which is rightfully yours), you will begin to see things change in your life. Acknowledge and appreciate any change (big or small). Keep going to this space and clearing out space in your mind for you to receive your richness. It’s a beautiful thing to experience.

Let me know how your experience goes with this tool.

Removing Negativity – As Easy As Breathing?

breathing

I know that it’s difficult sometimes to remove negative thoughts and realign with your true nature.

Sometimes things just drive us crazy, and it is difficult in those moments to calm things down and form a different perspective.

Sometimes you just have to allow yourself however, the break or pause that you need to get things back on track.

Here is a resource that will help you realign with the present moment.

It’s a meditation that helps you breathe in positivity and breathe out negativity. It’s short, sweet, and to the point. Ray (my spirit guides) and I, had fun creating this meditation, and I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for viewing!

What Is Inspiration?

Inspiration

What Is Inspiration?

Something already thought up, dreamt up, or envisioned by the creator and you and I being the vessel from which it flows.

Inspiration is the place where we can experience different pieces of the whole through dance, music, painting, writing, sewing, and any other form of art.

There seems to be a well of possibilities just waiting to be translated. If an art form grabs hold of you, it has obviously chosen you as the perfect medium for some of its greatest expressions.

We all have the ability to create.

It’s A Lifelong Friend

It seems also like there’s a friend listening to us and our deepest desires. It says, “look this way, turn this page, see this blog, call this person.” It’s an inner calling seeing if we can bring life to what it already sees us being able to fulfill.

That’s why artists do what they do. There is no greater love than being able to create.

To somehow believe in yourself and your ability enough to form a possibility into a manifestation.

Wow… Just breathe that in for a minute.

To believe in yourself and your ability enough to form a possibility into a manifestation. {Renee Brooks}

You are the seer, the breath in between, the vessel, and the entire creation all at the same time.

I love it when I don’t know what I am going to write in my own books. I am just as excited as the reader. It’s almost like lock after lock is opening when I write; revealing to me the parts that I am ready to transcribe.

The Spirit Of Inspiration

It’s sitting there waiting to surprise you. It’s like Christmas, or seeing your best friend after years of being apart, or meeting your pet for the first time. It’s that awe, that surprise. That thing that keeps you up late at night, and wakes you up at the crack of dawn. It’s the spirit that makes you want to live. The spirit that helps you move forward with enthusiasm and joy, even though you may not know exactly where you are going.

It’s a trickster sometimes. Elusive at first, but then reveals itself to you in a way that you never expected. It’s the moments when you feel like you are in moments of déjà vu. It’s the moments that smack you in the face (in a good way) and make you believe in your connection and your unique expression in this world.

An Unlimited Resource

It’s a resource that never runs out. It’s a lineage that existed since the beginning of time, and it doesn’t care about your nationality, sexual preferences, hair color, or how many likes you get on a post.

Inspiration only needs two things to flourish. A willing heart & peace with what is. {Renee Brooks}

It works best when you don’t try to box it in. It’s so enormous and out of the box that in order to capture any piece of it, you have to be out of the box as well and in the receiving mode.

For those of you who have felt this kind of inspiration, you know exactly where I am coming from.

Your Biggest Cheerleader

It’s a cheerleader, a coach, a confidant, and an encourager all at the same time. It’s filled with love ready to pour into whomever will receive it. It’s a well of beauty just waiting to be recognized and discovered.

If Inspiration Were A Painting

It would be called a beautiful nightmare. It would sit in front of you in the art gallery calling you towards it. It’s colors and majesty too powerful to soak in all at one time. The intensity of it however would compel you towards it saying, “look at me I am here for all to see, you can grasp me if you just breathe.” Once you relax, you would be able to see the rise and the fall of its waves, the current of its colors, the ups and downs, and its true beauty jump out at you taking you through a whirlwind of emotions. After it sucked you in emotionally it would release you breath by breath until you could see the beauty of its entirety.

Once the painting released you, you would feel heartbroken that it let you go. It would then call you again asking you to take another glimpse. It would then grab hold of you again, filling you up with tears of joy, opening up your heart, and taking you on a completely different ride.

That is my view of inspiration and to sum it all up in layman’s terms,

It’s Life Itself!

From my well of inspiration to your heart.

What is your idea of inspiration?

I would love to hear from you!

8 Tips To Help You Go With The Flow Of Your Passion

I’ve Come A Long Way

I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I published my first book. Wow how the time has flown! I remember writing each one of my books like it were yesterday.

I sometimes reminisce about what actually made me do it. You know, instead of sitting there with just thoughts in my head about publishing a book – actually putting pen to paper (fingers to keyboard), starting, and actually finishing.

When I was younger I use to write all the time. I could hardly wait to pass the stories on to someone close to me (usually my younger sister). I use to be so anxious to hear her opinion about what I had written.

As a curious adolescent, one day after giving my sister one of my stories, I read a note that my sister wrote to one of her friends. The words that my sister wrote were heartbreaking. She said, “I have to read another one of my sister’s stupid stories.” Most of you would have stopped writing right there, and I must admit that I stopped for a while.

But then I started again; something in me just wouldn’t let me stop for good. I knew that I had a voice, and despite my rather quiet nature, I knew I had something important to say. Regardless of if my sister liked it or not.

Stick With Me… The Tips Are Coming

Fast forward (a few years), and you have me in high school. I remember feeling my hands trembling writing a poem that we had to do for one of my English classes. I got up to the podium and got into character. It was in the middle of mid-terms and we had finished our mid-terms so the teacher wanted us to do some creative writing. I stood up at the podium and delivered a poem (mediocre in my opinion) in front of the entire class.

When I finished the final sentence, the entire class stood up and roared with cheers. I couldn’t believe it. Can you imagine? Middle of mid-terms, quiet in all the halls of the school, and one classroom just bursts into applause and screaming? The teacher next door came running into the classroom in a panic. My English teacher replied to her hysteria by saying, “I’m so sorry one of our students just wrote and delivered an exceptional poem”. That was a pivotal moment for me.

That started my fire. The fact that my dear mother cannot even read and write, further added to the passion. I know that my words mean something to someone and that’s the reason why I call myself an author and a writer. I know that through my stories I can reach out to people that may be going through their own personal struggle and offer them some encouragement.

Just A Little More… I Promise It’s Worth It

I remember writing a letter to my brother one day. I didn’t know how to get through to him. He wasn’t nice, and he was rather abusive to me. One day I took a pencil and a piece of paper and I wrote down exactly what it was that I was feeling. When he came in the room after he read the letter, he hugged me tight, wiped my tears, and told me he was sorry for being the way that he had been towards me. It was then that I knew that my writing had an effect on people.

So when I decided to actually start publishing my books, my fears from my childhood of course crept in. Along with the sickening feeling of inadequacy when the “real writers” wrote their nasty comments about us “wannabe authors” that don’t make money or have big named publishers. Despite the constant negativity, my heart just wanted to keep moving forward.

7 books later I don’t have my name on the new york times best sellers list, and I am honestly not paid handsomely for what I do, but that doesn’t make me any less of a writer. When I hear comments like “you changed my life”, “I live because you gave me strength”, or “I never thought of it that way”, I know that I am doing my job. So I wanted to take the time to share with you what I’ve learned about writing and the creative process over the years.

Hopefully this will offer encouragement to some of you, shift your perspective if you are thinking of giving up, or simply add to the well of resources that I know you have already collected.

And Now… The Tips

8 Tips To Help You Go With The Flow Of Your Passion

1. Never Compare Yourself To Others

I know how it feels to see some people at the top of a list, on magazine covers, and on tv, and to feel like crawling in a hole when you think of your work in comparison. The truth is… your voice means something. The people on the tv and magazines are meant to reach people sometimes on a wider scale. That doesn’t mean that your artistry/voice is not important. Imagine someone that finds your blog that was just about to give up on life and reads something so profound that makes them want to live another day. That matters too.

2. Take Your Time

I cannot stress this enough. I know we all want to see the finished product, but the true happiness/joy comes from really making love (in a sense) to your craft. It’s the journey through and to the finale that is the real indulgence. Pace yourself. Don’t be so quick to just finish. Savor every moment.

3. Be Your Own Unique Voice

There is a way that you write or perform that people will connect with. You do not have to copy anyone else. I know again that sometimes we feel like we fail in comparison to other people, but your style and the way that you deliver is important. Being genuine translates. It just does. So do you in the special way that only you can.

4. Don’t Discount Your Ideas

Sometimes I get an idea for a project, video, book etc and I just let it vanish into thin air. Later on down the line sometimes, I kick myself because I didn’t write it down. Sometimes it’s just not the proper time to post/share whatever you are thinking about. That doesn’t mean that your ideas or stupid or won’t be relevant in the future. So write it down. Any idea. Big or small. That way you can go back if you are inspired to use that idea.

5.  Write From Your Heart

I write to convey feelings/emotions/ideas. The reason that some can feel my writing is because I do not write about intense emotions that I have not experienced myself. Let me be clear, just because I wrote about the jungle in Journey Through Sattara doesn’t mean that I have actually been to the jungle. It just means that I know what it feels like to be in an environment that certainly feels like one.

When my characters cry, I am crying writing the words. So conveying feelings and doing it from the heart is a very important factor in any creative expression. I am sure you have lost someone close to you, or been through a tumultuous time, or experienced joy beyond anything you can accurately express with words. Those experiences are your resources. Pull from them, dig deep, feel them, and then express.

6. Don’t Publish For Other People

Man… I really need to get that framed. It’s so important. There are so many different people from different walks of life that will not get your artistry. It’s just the way of the world. So when you write or perform just find your own flow. Find the reason why you do it, and just do it. Leave how other people interpret your work out of the equation. Everyone has a different perspective. I want to add a quote by Paulo Coelho.

You Don’t Need To Explain Your Dreams They Belong To You

7. You’re Not Going To Learn Everything

People don’t follow their dreams or flow because sometimes they feel they are not educated enough, don’t know enough, or simply don’t feel adequate enough to pursue their destiny. I am here to tell you… you are not going to know everything about your craft. It’s just not possible, until you get into the thick of it. No amount of training is going to prepare you to genuinely express yourself. It is only a skill that can be developed through trial and error and experience. Just do it. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. You will learn along the way. Note: that does not mean to not have some kind of basic understanding, I just mean you don’t have to study for 25 years before you actually get up to do it.

8. Celebrate Your Accomplishments

If you don’t, the artist in you will get resentful that you are taking its precious resources and turning them into just going through the motions. Give yourself a treat. Stop, relax, rest. You don’t have to jump right into the next project. It is exhausting sometimes. Have you taken the time to really reflect on what you’ve created? You birthed something into the world. That is an accomplishment in itself. Do you know how many ideas are floating around that never come into existence? Give yourself a pat on the back. Congratulate yourself for at least creating something. Anything.

I hope this is helpful to you. From one passionate artist to another!

Sincerely,

Renee
