Well...I just LOVE books!
And I just got my last of 6 shipments from the other day. I order like this probably 2 times a year and call it my treat to me! One of the books I purchased is called The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women- a portable mentor by Gail McMeekin. It features interviews with 45 women such as: Sarah Ban Breathnach (Simple Abundance books and Foundation), Sigrid Olsen (International Fashion Design Firm), Christina Pickles (Emmy award winning actress and screenwriter), Marilou Awiakta(Cherokee/Appalachian poet,writer, activist and author), Michelle Cassou(Artist,Painter and co-founder of The Painting Experience Studio)...and many others.

Here are the "secrets":

* Acknowledging Your Creative Self
* Honoring Your Inspirations
* Following Your Fascinations
* Surrendering to Creative Cycles
* Committing to Self-Focus
* Conquering Saboteurs
* Consulting with Guides (for me this will be God and mentors)
* Selecting Empowering Partnerships and Alliances
* Transcending Rejections and Roadblocks
* Living in Abundance with Positive Priorities
* Subtracting Serenity Stealers
* Planning to Achieve Your Goals

This book is supposed to help engage your creativity, Master your challenges as a creative woman and actualize creative results.

I tend to glean what I need or what stands up in accordance with my faith beliefs, so I will let you know how it goes! I believe that the God of our Universe is a VERY creative Spirit indeed...I mean, just look at the trees, the clouds, the flowers, our children, can you now be inspired to be creative? It's everywhere we look!
