28: Inspiration and Rituals

January 21, 2021

As soon as you want inspiration it will not come. It can’t be forced. You do the work, follow your process and rituals and it will come. To open to inspiration, we have to train our minds to shut up, to encourage our emotions to remember, and open our in-sides to the love of doing what we need to do. We have to get out of our minds (thoughts) to get to the heart (emotions) of what it is we love (inspiration) to create. This is not a want, it’s a need. A want is the mind again. A need is what we love.
