After a much needed pattern interrupt yesterday (I wandered around some of my favorite shops) after my tech meltdown, I woke up today filled with excitement to dive back in and learn. I think I am most excited for my willingness to learn a new skill. I dated an audio engineer for 10 years, and didn’t care AT ALL about the technical side of recording. I am now realizing that I was giving my power away. It was also a convenient excuse to hide in my turtle shell and reenforce my limiting belief that it’s too hard to make money with my music, too out of reach, too expensive, etc. I could hide because I needed someone/something outside of myself to get my music into the world. My perfectionism was garnished with the belief that I wasn’t smart enough. It feels SO amazing as you do work around limiting beliefs, and begin to extract them, they are really the gift that keeps on giving. The layers just reveal themselves through your daily inspired actions. I am so excited to learn my new skills of GarageBand, and iMovie, I have no doubt that these tools will set my creativity on FIRE.

I am teaching myself Garageband. From scratch. It’s no small feat. As an artist, who has even dated an audio engineer (currently regretting not paying much attention to his Zone of Genius) I was never much into the technical side of things. Until now. I decided, where technology currently is, I am hindering myself to not learn the basics. Though I currently feel like my creativity is locked in a cage screaming for technical ability to set it free, I am just taking it one step at a time. In the past I would have bailed by now, it’s pretty complicated. However, if I can learn to speak, to walk, to drive, to sing live while dancers are dancing, I can learn Garageband.
Today when choosing from my lovely new “I am” deck by Mystic Moon Tarot, I chose “I am solar plexus” I had to look up what this meant, and found the most beautiful meaning. The third chakra is the center of willpower. While the sacral chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment, the third chakra is all about the perception of who you are. The third chakra is the center of your self-esteem, your willpower, self-discipline, as well as warmth in your personality. The energy of this chakra allows you to transform inertia into action and movement. It allows you to meet challenges and move forward in your life.
