I have been focusing on a new creative project. Lots of energy and enthusiasm being spent. Plenty of productive time making new things. Bouncing my ideas from others in the coaching group. But each time I start a brand new journey of creating, I have found myself becoming angry.
Each and every this happen? What is this anger about? What is happening?
My mentor and i also were discussing this. She wondered aloud this thought: “It appears like the tender spots are your location angry”… yeah. Very tender. The anger is saying something.
Discovering that it is difficult to hold a job picking anger all around, I desired to find away out to operate “through” or “around” the anger. So, I distract myself with painting, stories, dancing… something creative, but more mundane plus a bit mindless. This creative energy releases my mind to ensure I can “trick” my anger into thinking I’m busy along with other things.
When I try this I refer to it as “spinning”. Spinning jogs my memory from the stories from the spinning wheel where I can outside, hurry up creating (just like the wool about the wheel). This opens the door to metaphor and takes me faraway from my have to “control” an undertaking.
While i began drawing this picture… of an spinning wheel… I was thinking of “turning straw to gold”. I used to be reminded again with the story of Rumpelstilskin. You understand, normally the one… the millers daughter, the father says “she can spin straw into gold” on the king… as well as the king would like to understand this… if she cannot, she’s going to be put to death… ? Then, a strange little man appears. He tells her he is able to spin straw into gold… but it will be at a price to her.
I ran across the storyline and focus several versions from it. It resonated with me. However, when i usually do, Cleaning it once a to logically “organize” the story. This caused me being more frustrated, while i had not been seeing or feeling what this story was wanting to tell me.
I really went back to my “dream capture” work. Someone said the tale as though it were a fantasy I needed had. Then, I did so the following:
Listed out all of the characters
Listed out your “key words” inside the story that resonated with me
Re-read each word and wrote what that word meat in my opinion in my unique circumstances
After which… I started to see exactly what the story was saying. Can do for you I stumbled upon
The miscroscopic man (Rumplestilskin)=anger/creative fire/naming
The miller’s daughter=rest/creativity/giving
Spnning wheel=creating/spinning/asking for help
The baby=creation (project, artwork… )
While all these “characters” comes with an independent role, All the characters create one “psyche” personally. Many of us have of those qualities within us.
To make something, it requires much energy… and much rest is also needed. We’ve got to give of ourselves and request for help.
In the end, a baby arrives and we’ll not quit. It can be our “creation” and we are pleasantly surprised about that which you are making. Also, what can be done to acquire there.
What did I learn?
That story resonates beside me. Also, this story will repeat itself time and again as I carry on and create, rest, ask for help and finished a job. Though Rumpelstilskin stomps himself in to the ground at the conclusion of the story, that little man will probably be back… and next time, Let me know his name.
