Creativity Dis-ease 3: Muse Laryngitis

coach-blog-102416-muse-laryngitis In my role as a creativity coach, I’ve identified 12 creativity dis-eases that get us off-track from our art. Each month, I’ll highlight one.

This month, we’re talking about “Muse Laryngitis.” Can you relate?

Your muse has been speaking to you, she is always speaking to you, but you’ve tuned her out. She tried to speak louder and louder to get your attention, but you weren’t listening. She tried so hard that she lost her voice. Now she can barely speak and her voice comes out in a hoarse whisper, but she is still trying to get your attention.

The trick for this creativity dis-ease is that you need to get quiet and listen. Get out a journal or a doodle pad and transcribe what she’s telling you. It may be hard to understand her at first, so just sit and hold her hand, give her your attention, and help her heal her voice. Then as she’s able to speak, take notes or doodles to record her messages. Rebuild your relationship with her and you’ll strengthen your communication together. As you strengthen your connection with your muse, you create a fertile foundation for your art projects to flourish.

What do you think? Have you experienced “Muse Laryngitis”?
