It happens to us all….
You are going along, creating like a mad person and then WHAM – it hits you! That “lost your Mojo” feeling….
What do I do when there is no more MoJo?
I sleep and read and sleep.
I listen to those times and don’t try to force myself to create when those times come. I take it as a sign that my body needs the rest.
Its a pain when your business is all about creating and people are counting on you. I tried to work through it but it just got me deeper into the obyss. I hate it!
This year, though, it lasted longer than usual – I was starting to worry about it, and when Mercury Retrograde started – October 4th, I even thought of retiring.
Journaling didn’t seem to be bouncing me back as it usually did, so again, that made me start to wonder about things. In looking back over the past couple of months, I seemed to be allowing other things also crash my creativity.
I started scheduling more mediation times and more journaling – even it was just doodling.
Slowly, little things started getting me excited – like that Feather in the photo, its so tiny but was so powerful. Then, a trip to the local thrift store – where a huge bag of assorted beads for $2.50 got me even more excited. Both of those, brought me back from that place I thought was of no more creativity.
I am writing this to let you know, if you find you have lost your Mojo – maybe its time for you to consider:
- Some good ole rest.
- Walks in nature.
- Reading a book you thought you didn’t have time to read.
- Doodling mindless doodles (you can toss them if you want after).
- Visiting a local art supplies or craft store, just for window shopping or a local thrift store.
I am EXCITED to have re-found my MoJo and already a whole page of ideas have been written down for future projects, workshops or programs.
I’d LOVE to hear ” What do you do when there is no more MoJo?”
