Weekly Goddess Inspiration: The Muses

I was so happy to see The Muses come dancing into my life this week when I did my weekly draw from the Goddess Inspiration Oracle. I've been struggling off and on with writer's blocks for much of the last five years, and increasingly I am feeling, as Maya Angelou would have said, the weight of the untold stories inside me. I find myself longing to write more and more often, and frustrated by the things that get in the way -- or, perhaps, the things I let get in the way. I've been reading Christina Baldwin's Life's Companion: Journal Writing as a Spiritual Quest for the last several weeks, and am finding that it's inspiring me not only to think about my journalling practice, but about the craft of writing and finding purpose more generally. I am excited to see what The Muses' energy infuses into these ponderings and into my work this week!


The Muses, from The Goddess Inspiration Oracle by Kris Waldherr

Some questions that I'll be working with this week, and which I hope you'll consider as well:

What inspires me?

How can I cultivate inspiration?

What keeps me from acting on inspiration?

How can I encourage myself to act on inspiration more often?

Where can I seek out the things, people, places, experiences that inspire me?

What keeps me from creating?

How can I nurture my creativity?

How can I remove blocks to my own creative expression?
