40: Amber Rae – How to Explore Your Creativity from the Inside Out
“It’s important to make sure the soul is steering the ship and that the ego is supporting that journey.”
It’s important to take creativity to the extreme.
It’s important to acknowledge how the inner world and outer world interact with your creativity.
Once we discover our own world, how do we help the rest of the world with the same self-reflection? That’s what Amber Rae’s work is all about.
She’s on a treasure hunt to find the joy in uncovering clues and discovering wisdom. The joy that stems from her inner mentor and the mentor outside of herself. What does it mean to be living in a realm of synchronicity and flow? How do we embrace fear instead of trying to push it away?
This episode inspires me to get unstuck. To source creative flow. To inspire care and the power to listen to my inner artist. The clarity to focus on learning and creating.
Thank you for joining this week’s episode with Amber Rae.
“Focus on the input so that the output will naturally occur.”
