I am wiling to learn to let myself create.

Soften into the Unknown

Week 1, Day 3 of The Artist's Way

Today, let's find ease from the fear of the unknown by confronting the enemy within.

Your Enemy Within

“Most of the time when we are blocked in an area of our life, it is because we feel safer that way.

We may not be happy, but at least we know what we are—unhappy. Much fear of our own creativity is the fear of the unknown.

If I am fully creative, what will it mean? What will happen to me and to others? We have some pretty awful notions about what could happen. So, rather than find out, we decide to stay blocked. This is seldom a conscious decision. It is more often an unconscious response to internalized negative beliefs.”

(The Artist's Way, p. 30)

Yesterday, we listed three old enemies of our creative self-worth.

Today, let's write a letter to the editor in our defense.

Reflect on a horror story from your monster hall of fame. Now, write a letter in your defense. Write this letter in the voice of your wounded artist child:

“To whom it may concern: Sister Ann Rita is a jerk and has pig eyes and I can too spell!” 

For added fun, copy this letter onto nice stationery and mail it to yourself.

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.

– Joseph Chilton Pearce
