I have been previously working on a new creative project. Lots of energy and enthusiasm being spent. Lots of productive time making something new. Bouncing my ideas away from others within a coaching group. But every time I attempt a fresh journey of developing, I have found myself becoming angry.
Each and every this happen? What’s this anger about? What’s going on?
My mentor and that i were discussing this. She wondered aloud this thought: “It feels like the tender spots are what your location is angry”… yeah. Very tender. The anger is saying something.
Discovering that it is not easy to maintain a job picking anger all around, I needed to find a way 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 loosens my mind so that I could “trick” my anger into thinking I will be busy along with other things.
While i do that I refer to it “spinning”. Spinning reminds me of the stories of the spinning wheel where I will outside, hurry up creating (much like the wool on the wheel). This opens the door to metaphor and takes me away from my must “control” an undertaking.
Once i began drawing this picture… of your spinning wheel… I figured of “turning straw to gold”. I became reminded again in the story of Rumpelstilskin. You understand, normally the one… the millers daughter, the dad says “she can spin straw into gold” on the king… and the king wants to understand this… and when she cannot, she will be put to death… ? Then, a strange little man appears. He tells her the guy can spin straw into gold… but it will attend an amount to her.
I found the storyplot and study several versions of it. It resonated with me. However, while i usually do, I could to logically “organize” the story. This caused me to be more frustrated, while i was not seeing or feeling what this story was looking to let me know.
Therefore i went back to my “dream capture” work. I just read the storyplot just as if it were a goal I had had. Then, I did so the subsequent:
Listed out every one of the characters
Listed your “key words” within the story that resonated with me
Re-read each word and wrote what that word meat if you ask me in my current situation
And after that… I started to notice what are the story was saying. This is what I ran across
The tiny 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 each one of these “characters” has an independent role, Every one of the characters create one “psyche” personally. Just about everyone has of these qualities within us.
In order to make something, it takes much energy… and much rest can also be needed. We have to give of ourselves and request help.
In the long run, an infant is born and we will not quit. It can be our “creation” and we’re impressed by what we made. Also, what it takes to acquire there.
What did I learn?
This story resonates beside me. Also, this story will repeat itself repeatedly when i still create, rest, parents and complete an undertaking. Despite the fact that Rumpelstilskin stomps himself in the ground at the conclusion of the storyplot, that little man will be back… and next time, I am going to know his name.
