Word for January: SUPPORT
We are all designed to create. We all have a left and a right hemisphere. The right, with its infinite imagination and wisdom, was created to lead. And the left does its best work as support, physically carrying out the right’s ideas. It holds the to-do list.
This morning as I wrote, I felt fear. I know my left brain was trying to lead, because it does fear. By design, it was created to warn of danger, real danger, and we need it to survive. But its opinion about perceived danger is just that, opinion. It’s important to know its not fact. Your truth is found in the right hemisphere. Where your true self and God merge. And create.
I turned the page and asked a heart question. “Why do I want to do it?” This immediately put the right guy, the right brain, in charge. Heart questions do that. The answer flowed. Fear departed. And I felt energized. Excited. My focus had shifted from me to the people I wanted to serve. I saw it as an offer of love. There, there was peace. And no struggle.
If you’re feeling anxiety about something you want to create, shift focus. From focusing outside, on what others might think. (This is where your left, fearful brain points.) To focusing within, on what your authentic self knows. Ask why? And you will shift to the right space. And the left can do its best work as support.

The space where we create, our studio, supports our creativity. It offers love and is not in the least motivated by guilt (that’s the left brain talking). When the time is right, visit. For love.
