Why Creativity Coaching?
Psychologist Abraham Maslow said, “The key question isn’t “What fosters creativity?” But it is why in God’s name isn’t everyone creative? Where was the human potential lost? How was it crippled? I think therefore a good question might be not why do people create? But why do people not create or innovate? We have got to abandon that sense of amazement in the face of creativity, as if it were a miracle if anybody created anything.”
The good news is that I found it’s easy to reclaim. As one participant in my Exploring Your Creative Self workshop put it,”it’s amazing that the creativity is right there just below the surface waiting to come alive.”
EFT for Creativity
Creativity is a high energy state that gives you access to new ways of a looking at a problem and finding solutions. Everyone has creative abilities. They are not limited just to the arts. The ability to solve problems creatively can help you in every area of your life. And creativity is not the domain of just a few gifted individuals. Everyone is born with the same capacity to be creative. It just needs to be cultivated and encouraged. Our creative self is a tender, vulnerable aspect of ourselves associated with the spirit of play and our inner child, who can be easily traumatized. Most of us were not encouraged to develop this part of ourselves and many of us were actively discouraged with creativity being considered frivolous and the domain of the starving artist.
The Magic of Ireland

Nature and Creativity
When I received the inspiration for the name of my business Creativity Goes Wild I was on a modern day vision quest in an extraordinary canyon in southern Utah that allowed me to really open to the flow of new ideas. Along with the name, I also got that the essence of the work included three different elements: Nature, creativity and the soul which are aspects we can connect to that can really help us live full and authentic lives.
I have long thought of nature as the original artist. If you spend any time in nature and pay close attention, you become aware of the beauty and design and patterns in both small things like the symmetry in pine cones and snowflakes or on a grander scale the patterns in the erosion of mountains or the movement of clouds across the sky.
At first glance nature might look chaotic or random or disordered but the more you observe and learn about the natural world the more you become aware of the elegance of design in every creation. We can draw inspiration for our own creativity from spending time in Nature, the same way we feel inspired by visiting an art exhibit, going to a play or watching a good movie.
