I have already been working on a whole new creative project. A great deal of energy and enthusiasm being spent. Lots of productive time making a new challenge. Bouncing my ideas away from others in a coaching group. But each and every time I embark on a whole new journey of producing, I have discovered myself becoming angry.
Each and every this happen? What exactly is this anger about? What’s going on?
My mentor and I were discussing this. She wondered aloud this thought: “It feels like the tender spots are where you are angry”… yeah. Very tender. The anger is saying something.
Discovering that it is hard to hold a project using anger all around, I needed to find away out to work “through” or “around” the anger. So, I distract myself with painting, stories, dancing… something creative, but more mundane plus a bit mindless. This creative energy loosens my mind so that I could “trick” my anger into thinking I’m busy along with other things.
Once i try this I refer to it as “spinning”. Spinning jogs my memory with the stories from the spinning wheel where I will outside, hurry up creating (much like the wool for the wheel). This opens the door to metaphor and takes me away from my have to “control” an undertaking.
After i began drawing this image… of a spinning wheel… I figured of “turning straw to gold”. I was reminded again with the story of Rumpelstilskin. You realize, the main one… the millers daughter, the daddy says “she can spin straw into gold” on the king… and also the king really wants to check this out… and if she cannot, she’s going to be placed to death… ? Then, a strange little man appears. He tells her he is able to spin straw into gold… but it’ll show up at a cost to her.
I discovered the story and study several versions of computer. It resonated with me. However, because i usually do, Cleaning it once a to logically “organize” the storyplot. This caused me to be more frustrated, as I was not seeing or feeling what this story was looking to let me know.
So I returned to my “dream capture” work. I just read the tale as if it were a goal I’d had. Then, I did so the following:
Listed out all the characters
Listed the “key words” in the story that resonated with me at night
Re-read each word and wrote what that word meat if you ask me during my unique circumstances
And after that… I started to notice just what the story was telling me. Here is what I discovered
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 a independent role, Each of the characters create one “psyche” to me. We have all of such qualities within us.
To create something, it will require much energy… and a lot rest is additionally needed. We should give of ourselves and request for help.
Eventually, a child comes into the world and we’ll not stop. It can be our “creation” and we are pleasantly surprised about what we are making. Also, what can be done to have there.
What did I learn?
Until this story resonates with me at night. Also, this story will repeat itself again and again while i still create, rest, other people and handle a job. Though Rumpelstilskin stomps himself in the ground after the storyplot, that little man is going to be back… followed by time, Let me know his name.
