With Imbolc passed I am at the end of this season’s hibernated “creative incubation”
Within the Power Of Myth by Joseph Campbell he wrote ...
“You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen”.
Creative incubation will not go away because this in an important intent of the Tree Labyrinth here at Carrowcrory . I and others will enjoy our moments of incubation there. It is imagination revealed and journaled that sparks what I write and compose through the Samhain to Imbolc time.
I believe that creative incubation charges love, ideas, understanding, and creative synthesis of what is around us. It’s nourishment banishes the hungers of longing, loneliness, guilt, shame, anger, possession, and disappointments from expectations.
Please, I heartily recommend that you ensure you have a sacred space, preferably outside, and have patience with it.
