Moving Through Transition: A Letter to Sweden
I've posted a letter here that I sent today to a lovely woman, who is holding my virtual hand as I face my various creative hills and mountains.
I decided to post a letter as this is all the writing I am presently capable of producing... going through a metamorphosis of strange and deep and wide proportions.

"Thanks sweet woman for your good words. I just read an article in my inbox to help us both...Me much more so than you at the moment:
All about the stuff that comes up just before a Big Leap. Transition.
I feel a lot more comforted in the recollection that I have indeed been here before and have come through miraculously full of new inspiration and having moved ahead in my vision and ability to produce. So, I wont fight it.
Or get so down that I can't get up again : )
I agree with you that life does send you opportunities for gaining practical knowledge of that which you are intent on being a master of, teaching or helping others with.
My biggest issue (i think) right now is trying to be creative while also wanting the big money maker project. I have a couple of projects all busy brewing and keep hopping around as I think one or the other has more immediate money making potential. Such a pity. So the finances are driving me instead of the excitement and deep heartfelt intention - the result is a dead loss in all the projects. I know from previous experience that this is a killer to creativity.
It's the hardest test to stay positively productive and on track when money is not flowing. As my husband is the money earner and I sell artwork maybe once a month ( ! ) I have been focusing on making my attitude to art more businesslike. It has moved me forward in a big way, I have a website, an online shop and artwork in two galleries... but I am still tempted to start raw food transformation/transition coaching, I still want to write my book, and I want to create weekend Raw Retreat Experiences and I want to fatten my blog with artist interviews and lots of interactive fun stuff for creative inspiration. is this all too much??
This is where I wish I could afford Karen's 1:1 coaching sessions...!!
I am going to do what you suggested (treating myself like the client) and hopefully get some answers : )"
