The Co-Creation Journal

This is as new for me as it may be for you. It’s only been a few days since I was drawn to begin my co-creation journal. I’ve journaled for years and after I completed writing The Holistic Entrepreneur, something shifted. I didn’t want to do what I had been doing for so long. It got me stuck and it got me feeling unsettled. I had been doing to for so long and something inside me shifted.

In The Holistic Entrepreneur I talk about being grateful in the moment, not so much as constantly journalling about it. The combination of both worked for me for so long and then something shifted again. I know I will never stop feeling grateful in the moment and I will always sneak off to bathrooms and high five myself of hug myself so tight and say, “well done you!”.

Of late, my focus has changed and I have been drawn, mostly by undeniable signs to discover the power of co-creation. It is a tricky thing to get our heads around the reality that we are the universe. We are all of the universe and we manifest from our energetic centers of the heart and our deepest feelings. That is why thoughts don’t become things. The way we feel about thoughts is what turns into things. It’s also the we try and create for nothing and expect miracles to happen. The more I’ve been trying to connect to my own understanding of co-creation, the more I’ve been drawn to keep a co-creation journal.

The trick is that there can’t be plotting and scheming in it. The universe just doesn’t work that way. This is what I’ve been doing … I carry a small journal around with me and only once the co-creation has happened and I piece it all together do I get all excited about it and journal it. A great example is my dear friend Jenn and I planned to have a night out where we got dressed and had some fun. We picked this weekend but it never happened that we managed to plan anything. Life got in the way. Then yesterday I went to an all women’s event (Women’s month celebrations) and there were only four or five men in the room of over a hundred women. There stood a friend of my bestie, who now lives overseas. He was so excited to see me and invited to and whoever I wanted to bring to his birthday party tonight. Co-creation in full swing … us two ladies had a reason to get dressed up, as energetically desired.

Another great examples is my team and myself each work a weekend on social media community management and then they take off the Monday. That day makes me stressed because our clients usually jump into action on a Monday and want things done, which I can do, but I would much prefer to do with my team. I felt it this week and had a silent moment of not wanting the stress anymore, so I decided to work on shifting my energy and basically getting over myself and my issues. Today, in our staff meeting, my team asked if they have to take a Monday off?? I halted the meeting … I whipped out my co-creation journal and I told them that, of course not, they did not have to! Thank you me … thank you universe.

I’m still playing around with the co-creation of all things and I do believe it’s the tiny things which will make us realize we can create the bigger ones. The problem is we start with the manifestation of the total overhaul of life. Baby steps … very conscious baby step.

Try it with me …
