Make a date with your muse

Before the end of summer, schedule a fling with your muse.

Take a hike, a picnic, a quiet swim, a drive in the country, etc. Relax and daydream, then do some journaling to have a “conversation” your muse. Take turns asking and answering questions in your journal with some automatic writing.

Here are some sample topics:

  • What was your favorite part of our activity today?
  • Where would you like to go next?
  • What is inspiring you lately? (Music, tv, books, movies, colors, textures, etc.)
  • What kind of creative expression would feel really good right now?
  • What kind of self-care practice are you craving?
  • What would be a fun creative risk to try?
  • With whom could we share something creative soon?
  • What can we do with the last few weeks of summer energy?
  • Where will the autumn take us? What would we love to experience in autumn?

The more you engage with your muse any time of day, the more she will show up for you when it’s time to be creative. Just like a friendship or romantic relationship, you need to spend time together not just when you need or want something. Get to know each other and open a communication channel by making a date with your muse.

Where would your muse like to go?
