Unlocking creativity through connections

Inspiration in shadowsI have been on what feels like a whirlwind tour the past few weeks that all started with one introduction.  I work with a wonderful coach Melanie DewBerry-Jones (verbalswagger.com) who introduced me to the dating coach Sandy Weiner (lastfirstdate.com).  Melanie had been a guest on Sandy’s radio show and she thought that Sandy might be interested in me as a future guest.

I spoke with Sandy and in addition to discussing being on her radio show in a few months, she suggested that I speak with another woman, Jane Pollak (janepollak.com) because Jane was just about to start a community for women entrepreneurs.  Sandy and Jane are both based in Connecticut and I am not far from them in New York.  Although location really doesn’t matter these days because so much of communication and connection is virtual, I liked the sense that they were physically nearby.  Many in my community of coaches are in California.

I had a short 15-minute conversation with Jane and immediately had an “aha” moment that set my creativity on fire.  I signed up for her “Soul Proprietor” community and the same day synchronistically received an unrelated email about an entrepreneur speaker series (broadviewpreneur.com/telesummit/).  Since that first introduction to Sandy just three weeks ago, almost by magic, my creativity is in motion.

Creativity boardEmotionally I have re-arranged the space in my head and physically I have changed my surroundings to let my imagination loose.  Andy and I moved my office desk and other furniture to support my new energy needs.  I got a beautiful memo board and file holder that are magnetic and allow me to keep images and items of inspiration and color available for each moment.  I have been listening to speakers about energy work, abundance, tapping into authenticity, creating websites, meditation and my mind is overflowing with ideas that I will bring to my own business as a Wedding Officiant and Life-Cycle Celebrant.  All it took was one soulful connection to let my resourcefulness run wild.  Who will show up in your life to rev your juices?

  1. Rachel, thank you for that beautiful mention of our connection. I totally believe in the power of soul connections. I am so glad that our conversation led you to the awe-inspiring Jane Pollak (who now lives in NYC), and there’s more to come. I can’t wait to have you on my radio show soon. Here’s to connecting deeply to soul sisters. xoxox


  2. Rachel — Wow! What an amazing life path you’ve been on, my friend. So glad to see that you are following your heart, your spirit, your love. What a beautiful space you’ve created here, sharing your energy with so many others. Connections come in all shapes and sizes. It’s my belief that ultimately, we all come together to share, to learn, to create, and most importantly, to love.

    It’s been eons since we shared a cement wall between us at EMA, but in so many ways….it seems like only yesterday. I’m all about breaking down walls 🙂
