3 Invisible Paradoxes To Activating The Creative Life Of Your Dreams
You’re here for a reason.
You have dreams in you waiting to be expressed. You want to unleash your creativity and live your most meaningful life.
Am I right? I think so.
You may be working on an exciting dream.
Maybe that dream is writing a book. It might be filming a documentary or singing opera. It could be drawing animals, painting abstract expressionist works of art, choreographing a dance. Maybe you’re planning and executing an expedition to the Antarctic, or learning a new musical instrument.
Whatever your big dream or goal is, I know that it’s exciting for you, and you want to do everything you possibly can to achieve it.
On the other hand, you might be here for an entirely different reason. You may be solving a problem- a big, painful problem in your life. Things might feel difficult and challenging for you.
Things may be tough. Maybe you’re overwhelmed with a new creative project. Maybe you’ve suffered a serious setback or disappointment.
Whatever it is you’re facing, I want you to believe in yourself and know that you can solve this problem. I believe that the lessons we cover today in the training 3 Invisible Paradoxes Of Activating The Creative Life Of Your Dreams will guide and inspire you to say yes to your dreams and believe in yourself.
So no matter what brought you here, no matter what you’re looking to accomplish, there’s one other important thing I want you to know.
Your heart has its reasons
for taking this class in this moment, for being here in your life, for creating your art. The universe, God, the angels, the higher power, stardust or whatever you believe in didn’t make you to just show up for no reason.
You’re here for a reason, and you’ve come here to express yourself.
Your stories, your art, your dreams and your life matters. There’s no one like you in the universe.
You’re irreplaceable, an unrepeatable. There’s no one like you in the universe, nor will there ever be.
You’re a miracle, and you came here to be yourself and to live your deepest, most meaningful life.
No one has the particular chemistry, biology, gestures, quirks or the history that you have lived.
And here’s the other thing,
You were born with the power to create and to make a difference in this world.
This is inherent to you. It’s inside you. It’s not something outside of yourself, but rather the brilliance within you right now in this moment.
But before we go on, there’s something I want to make clear.
I’m not here to give answers. I’m here to guide you to the questions, the questions that are most meaningful to you.
And even though I’m a psychiatrist and help people with personal development in life issues for over two decades, I’m not here to give you answers, but rather to guide you to ask the questions and reflect on your life in a way that will bring forth the treasures that live inside of you.
Live the questions. Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and books that are written in a very foreign tongue.
Do not seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them and the point is to live everything.
Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer
Ranier Maria Rilke
And what we’re really talking about here is embracing uncertainty.
There are answers inside of you waiting to be found, to be discovered in the end, as you step into the unknown, into the mystery and live the questions. You’ll see that aha’s and revelations and understandings and wisdom will emerge and unfold, and that it comes from you as you say yes to the dreams that call you.
But here’s the thing. If there’s any area of your life that is a struggle right now, if things aren’t going so well, if you reject your creations, if you see your art is ugly or mediocre,
If you hate your first draft, your sequence of moves and your choreography seems off. You flubbed your lines in the play.
Yes, this is where you want to be!
You’re probably saying, “What, Nancy, what are you talking about?”
I’m talking about the paradox of creation.
Creating takes the known world and spins it on its head because creating is about embracing the uglies.
Your ugly works are often the nascent embryonic forms of new work emerging.
And what we’re really talking about is stepping into the unknown.
It’s crossing the threshold into not knowing, and that’s a vulnerable place to be.
It’s not about replicating what we know.
It’s about allowing for the emergence of new forms, new associations, the unseen and the invisible.
I remember my first sculpture lesson.
I was a newly minted psychiatrist. My dream, the day I finished seven years of post medical school residency training, was to find a sculpture teacher and learn how to sculpt.
I was too intimidated to take a class, so I found a sculptor who would teach private lessons in her home.
When I arrived with 25 pounds of clay, I said, “I don’t know what I’m doing” and she said,”Great”.
I knew I’d found my teacher.
And with that, let’s dive into:
The 3 Invisible Paradoxes Of Activating The Creative Life Of Your Dreams
We’re going to talk about how to move through the three invisible paradoxes of activating your creativity. And please make sure you stick around to the end of this class because I have something so awesome that you’re not going to want to miss it.
I’m going to be offering something special this February, and I’m going to coach you for free. I’ll tell you how to get in on that at the end of this class,
So here’s what you’ll learn:
- The one thing you must do in order to create. It’s a game changing concept from mathematics, but you don’t have to be a mathematician to implement it.
- Stories you tell yourself that keep you from activating your creative life,
- The holy Grail of creating and held. This will transform your life and art.
So let’s dive right in.
Invisible Paradox #1: The Refusal
You tell yourself it’s safer to stay in the known, in the familiar, in the status quo.
And so you refuse the call.
You turn your face away from the dream, the yearning, the whisper of something you want to explore.
The problem is the dream simply won’t go away. It keeps showing up, nudging you, whispering in your ear.
This refusal causes pain.
And here’s what the refusal feels like.
You go to a bookstore to the self help section, and you feel that old, familiar yearning to write your book on parenting teenagers with compassion. But you’ve sat on this dream for years, and you feel disappointed that you’ve put it off. It starts to feel like an ever receding dream that will never come true.
It’s the pain and disappointment of un-lived dreams. It’s the feeling that something vital is being missed or dismissed. It’s feeling as if you’re not living your most meaningful life, and it’s a feeling of regret.
So what does the refusal sound like?
Here’s what it sounds like. This is what we may say to ourselves in our minds:
- It’s too late.
- I don’t know what I’m doing.
- I’m not that creative.
- I’m not really an artist or dancer, opera, singer, musician or actor or filmmaker. A writer.
- I’ll get to it later.
- I’m busy now.
- It’s simply not realistic or practical to do this.
But when you finally say yes to your dream, when you finally refuse the refusal, you open up the field of infinite possibilities, and that’s because yes equals possibility.
You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
Not trying is an automatic no.
So what do we do? How do we say yes to the things that scare us so that we can get closer to our dreams?
Zero to one.
So what is zero to one and what does it have to do with creation? And how does it move me past invisible paradox #1?
Zero to one is a mathematical concept. It’s this idea that the interval between zero and one is larger than any other interval.
It’s larger than the interval between one and two or two and three, and so on. It’s a fascinating concept, and it means that the biggest change is from 0 to 1, from nothing to something from no to yes.
This is enormous and the implications for creativity are profound.
So when you make a move, any move, you’re moving past inertia, past zero to one. Even when you tell yourself you don’t know what you’re doing,
A Story Of Zero To One
Let me tell you a story about a woman who turned her face away from her dream of creating art.
For 42 years, she wanted to paint, but she had three children, an ill husband and a full time job as a teacher.
Time slipped away. One day she looked up and she was 64. Her children were grown. Her husband had healed, but her dream had lain fallow.
Pretty soon she felt the old familiar tugging at her heart. She’d scour social media, looking at paintings by artists, and the voice in her ear asked, “What about your art?”
At first, she ignored it. She told herself it was too late. She hadn’t painted since college, she’d be rusty. she wouldn’t remember how or, worse, she would be mediocre.
But the voice simply wouldn’t be dismissed. And so one day she finally said yes,
She’d held onto her dreams all these years and finally she said yes to creating art. And she began painting and re-finding her joy and creative self expression.
So it’s important to hold on to your dreams no matter what.
Here’s the truth.
When you finally say yes to your dream.
When you finally refuse the refusal, the universe steps in to help you.
You may say, “But Nancy, that sounds great but how is this going to help me?
Well, guess what? I got your back here,
This little book right here, my new book, The Artist’s Journey Creativity Reflection Journal. There’s a whole lesson on zero to one, to basically saying yes to your dreams.
And this is where you write down the smallest kaizen action that will move you from zero to one in The Creativity Reflection Journal because what we’re really talking about here is cultivating a feeling of aliveness and meaning.
And we create meaning every day.
When you’re living your most alive and vibrant life, you’re taking risks. you’re experimenting, you’re exploring and you’re evolving in your life.
This book is crafted to activate your creativity through reflection into your process and then document what’s meaningful to you on your creative journey.
I’m so excited about this. And if you order your copy you’re going to have an opportunity to get in on a really exciting training in mid February.
So guess what? Jump in and order your book.
What we’re talking about here is cultivating a life of meaning, creating meaning every day and living your most alive and vibrant life.
This book is crafted to activate your creativity through reflection into your process and to document what’s meaningful to you on your creative journey.
What I want you to know is this fact: You have what it takes to say yes to your dreams to bring them alive.
Whatever your creative dreams are, your dreams matter, your stories, your art, your creations, your life matters.
So let’s turn insight into action. Let’s do this.
I want you to write down in your WORKBOOK exactly what your dream is.
And you may you do this after the webinar if you need more time. Be specific. For example,maybe you want to write a screenplay within the next 12 months. Whatever your dream is, write it down.
Writing it down brings visibility and gravitas to the project. You can do this after the webinar, but if you have an idea, quickly write it down.
So let’s recap.
- Decide on your dream.
- Say yes to your dream.
- Bring your dream into action.
- Zero to one.
That is how we overcome Invisible Paradox #1.
Sound good? Great.
Now let’s move on.
Invisible Paradox #2: The Perils
The perils are those real or imagined consequences of saying yes to your dream and plunging into the unknown, into the underbelly, the bowels of the monster.
The problem is that the perils can paralyzing.
You may think you made a mistake by saying yes to your dreams.
You begin to doubt yourself or your abilities. You may want to turn back to the old familiar life.
The perils equal fear.
These perils are really about fear, because creating brings up fear. It brings up vulnerability.
So let’s talk about what the perils feel like.
So you finally say yes to your dream only to be plunged into the perils of fear, self doubt, perfectionism inner criticism, second guessing over thinking, feeling lost and even resignation.
Let’s talk about what the perils sound like.
This is what we may be saying to ourselves in our minds:
- Oh, no, I don’t have what it takes.
- This is too hard.
- I’m not good at this.
- I should give up.
You have so much self dealt that you feel like going back to your old life, the one where you ignored your dream.
So what’s the solution when you finally say yes to your dream?
When you refuse the refusal and move past the perils, you open up the field of infinite possibilities.
So fear is actually a good sign.
And that’s because fear means that you’re facing your edge.
A Story Of Facing Perils
Let me tell you the story about a recent experience. I had a dream to speak on stage, but I was terrified. I wanted to speak about creativity to a group of 400 authors at a conference in Austin, Texas.
In order to do this, I had to audition with a three minute talk online. I made into the finals only to learn that I needed to now give a two minute talk.
At that point I felt like giving up. It was already hard enough to get my message across in a three minute speech, how could I do it in two minutes?
And even if I was chosen, I had plans to travel to Italy and wouldn’t have much time to craft a 20 minute speech for this stage.
I almost gave up again. But something inside, a little voice said, Don’t give up. Your message is important. It could make a difference for someone.
Long story short. I didn’t give up.
I was chosen. Many people came to me afterward holding their hearts, saying how much it meant to them to hear this talk and most importantly, a woman who had lost her 17 year old daughter to a pulmonary embolism six years previously told me the talk gave her courage to keep writing her book about her daughter.
It’s essentially a legacy book in honor of her daughter for her family to know the daughter who died.
So bringing your awareness in as you face your fear, realizing that your art, your creations matter and it could make a difference in someone’s life can help you past the resistance and the fear of going ahead with your dream.
So what do we do? How do we keep going even in the face of perils, even when we have fear, so that we can get closer to our dreams?
And how do you move beyond fear? What does it have to do with creation, and how does it move you past Invisible Paradox Number #2?
The solution is to face your fears and go ahead anyway.
So here’s the truth. Fear is a good thing. It’s an indicator that you’re stepping into the unknown, into new territory and taking risks.
First, it’s important to know this truth.
Fear exists for a good reason, but there can be too much of a good thing.
Fear evolved to keep us alive. It harkens back to saber toothed tigers, of dank caves and of lives, precarious and short, death sudden and vicious.
This history passed along the centuries through our DNA lurks inside of us in the older, more primitive structures of our brains, a sleeping giant ready to be awakened at any moment.
But there can be too much of a good thing.
Living a life based on fear can stop you from achieving your highest expression of your humanity, much less achieving your dreams.
The truth is that fear can be mediated by awareness. The inner monster can be recognized as a phantom rather than a real life Grendel that our inner Beowulf must slay.
It’s important to keep going, even when you’re afraid. Your dreams are that important.
You may say, “But Nancy, that sounds great, but how is this going to help me?”
Guess what? I’ve got your back again.
I’ve got this wonderful little book here that I wrote, and there’s an entire page called out Fear, and this is where we explore the origins of fear and how it can be mediated.
And we have creativity exercises to explore those fears and actually replace them with affirmations.
So this is a really powerful practice, and I encourage you to get the book and go further with it.
Let’s get back to the lesson.
Here’s a fact. I want you to know that you have what it takes to face your fears and mediate them through awareness.
Do this now, take out your workbook and ask yourself, What are your fears right down your fears on the left hand column.
Let’s turn your insight into action. I want you to write down exactly what 1, 2 or 3 of your biggest fears are.
For example, your fears might be:
- I don’t know what I’m doing as an artist or
- I’m not really a writer or
- I’m too old to be an actor.
Now go back and on the right hand side, replace each fear with a positive statement.
- It’s a good thing to not know
- Creator are continually stepping into the unknown
- I am a writer. Writers write and that’s what I do
- Now is the perfect time for me to act.
- It’s never too late,
So let’s recap.
- Face your fears as you plunge into the unknown. This is where the magic is.
- Go ahead anyway.
- Replace your fears with positive statements and
- Fear is a good thing.
And what we’re really talking about is cognitive restructuring. This is the rewiring of the neural networks through mindfulness, awareness and reframing.
We can rewire our neural networks, that is how we overcome Invisible Paradox #2.
The paradox is that fear is good. It means that you’re living at your edge. You’re stepping into the unknown, and this is scary, but it’s also meaningful and alive.
Sound good? Great.
Now let’s move on to:
Invisible Paradox #3. The Dark Night of the Soul
So you finally pushed through the refusal and say yes to your dream, and you faced the perils of creation. Only now to reckon with the Big Mama, The dark night of the soul, the moment of greatest self doubt when all feels lost.
The problem is that the dark night of the soul is the moment of greatest self doubt and despair.
It’s the moment you must face alone because you’re ultimately facing yourself and only you can do this.
The Dark Night equals the greatest self doubt
So let’s talk about what the dark night of the soul feels like.
- You’re in the middle of a 300 page draft of your novel, and you lose faith in the project and in yourself, you feel like ripping it up, abandoning it.
- You feel convinced that you’re not a real artist or writer or choreographer, filmmaker, poet, composer and all feels lost.
Now here’s what the dark Night sounds like. This is what we may say to ourselves in our minds,
- What was I thinking?
- How did I ever think I could do this?
- Why did I say yes to this?
- This is never going to work.
- Who are you kidding?
The paradox is that the dark night of the soul, the moment of greatest self doubt is the moment pregnant with possibility.
The transformation lives at the edge of your struggle.
It’s the moment when you need to hold on because it’s the possibility of finally facing yourself- all your doubts, fears and insecurities.
Facing the Dark Night equals transformation. And that’s because facing the dark night, facing yourself leads to the transformation of finally trusting herself.
So what do we do? The dark night brings up your greatest self doubt, yet it’s the moment of transformation.
Your solution is to dig down deep and carry on through the dark night. Hold on through your self doubt, knowing that transformation is on the other side of that.
Hold on through the terrible self doubt and don’t give up on:
- the manuscript,
- the play,
- the comedic routine,
- the choreography,
- the musical composition,
- the painting,
- the feature film,
- the poem.
So what is the transformation and what does it have to do with creation, and how does it move me past Invisible Paradox #3?
Well, the transformation is trusting yourself. The transformation is wrestling down the dark angels of self doubt and despair and trusting yourself.
And why is this important?
Well, we know that:
The sine qua non of the creator is experimentation
Experimentation requires trust and an attitude of allowing in order to experiment deeply. You’ve got to trust yourself enough to take those risks.
Creators create. Artists experiment. They continually evolve their work, explore new and unknown forms and allow themselves to be surprised by what bubbles up and is discovered.
Ordinary people believe only and the possible extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible.but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible.
This webinar about creativity wouldn’t be complete for me without talking about either Dante or Rembrandt.
In this one, I’ll tell you a story about Rembrandt and why he’s important. When I was a child, I was fortunate to have Rembrandt reproductions that hung in the living room where I played: A Man With A Golden Helmet and Girl With A Broom.
I’d stare at them for hours, imagining that the figures were real and could, at any moment, step out of the canvas and come play with me. Such was the power of great art.
When Rembrandt was 25 he painted the most innovative group portrait ever seen.
The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp. No one had ever placed figures in a group portrait in a variety of positions in the picture plane.
His arrangement of figures was unique. This painting put him into the history books and cemented his fame.
Rembrandt was one of the first artists to fully transform self portraiture to a sophisticated genre in its own right.
And not only that, Rembrandt experimented with pigments. There are still mixtures he created that cannot be reproduced.
He explored textures by scratching into the paint with the handle of his brush, as well as exploring impasto brushstrokes.
He took big risks and moved into unknown territory, and this is part of why he’s considered one of the greatest artists to ever live.
He experimented constantly, continually evolving his art, exploring the reaches of his imagination.
And so with that, it’s important to remember this:
Transformation lives at the edge of your greatest self doubt
You may say, “But Nancy, that sounds great. but how is this going to help me?”
In my new book, The Artist’s Journey Creativity Reflection Journal, we explore a concept that is absolutely fascinating to me: the adjacent possible.
And this is a concept from evolutionary biology. One thing affects the next, one movement, one opening leads into another possibility, opens up possibilities that wouldn’t have been there otherwise, without taking that step.
Each step in your journey generates a new set of possibilities.
Each action you take in a dynamic, evolving environment changes not only your perspective but the environment, creating new possibilities that didn’t exist before. And I think this is the essence of creativity.
So order your copy and get going on your creativity.
Now, I’ll see you back in the training.
The adjacent possible. This is a concept from evolutionary biology where we know that the adjacent possible is about how each step, each action generates a new set of possibilities that wouldn’t have happened otherwise. This is the essence of creativity.
It’s what creating is about. It’s what’s just around the corner, right around the bend of this reality.
It lives in the unknown, waiting for us to discover it. But what I want you to know is that:
The adjacent possible matters little unless you’re aware of its presence.
The creative impulse can be subtle. It’s easily missed or dismissed.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
So I want you to do this now. Pull out your workbook. Write down an experience where you almost gave up, but didn’t. Somehow you held onto your dream.
Somehow you moved past the dark night of self doubt and trusted yourself enough to keep going. You held on, you took a step, and something new emerged that wouldn’t have otherwise. Things that you had no way of knowing would happen beforehand happened.
This is the adjacent possible.
And again, you can do this in your workbook after the webinar if you wish. If anything pops to mind about something led to a surprise, where there was no way you could’ve known ahead of time what would happen.. you were stepping into the adjacent possible. Write it down.
And that, my friend, is the essence of creativity.
So let’s recap.
- The paradox is that the Dark Night, the moment of greatest self doubt, is the moment of transformation.
- By facing your fears, you activate the possibility of trusting yourself.
- Your deepest work lives at the edge of your struggle.
So hold on through the dark night.
We’ve come full circle to activating the creative life of your dreams.
You’re a creator. Your story, your art, your creations matter.
You are precious and irreplaceable. And we want to see YOU in your creations and what you have to share with the world.
We know that beliefs are the authors of behavior.
Your thoughts inform your action and inaction. Studies in neuroscience show us that we can transform our thoughts.
We can change our neural networks and begin to think in new ways. Carol Dweck’s work at Stanford on the growth versus the static mindset shows the power of our thoughts and our mindset in affecting our experiences.
Believing that you can grow and evolve makes a big difference in opening up possibilities in your life.
We also know that your inner dialogue, which reflects your inner landscape, matters. How you speak to yourself has far ranging implications on your experiences.
So get the book!
I wrote an entire book to guide you to tune into your inner dialogue, your inner landscape and to document your experience of creating.
There you are a creator. You’re absolutely irreplaceable. Your voice, your story, your vision, your expression matters.
You can make a difference in this world, and we went to see you. We want to see what you have to express,
I want you to believe in yourself.
The late poet Mary Oliver asked in her poem The Summer Day,
Doesn’t everything diet last and too soon? Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
There’s only one you in the universe. We want to see you say yes to the dream that lives inside you.
The world awaits.
And with that, I say:
Congratulations! You did it.
So let’s do a little review about Activating The Creative Life Of Your Dreams.
We talked about the three keys to the creative life of your dreams.
- Say yes to your dreams,
- Refuse the refusal,
- Face your fears and go ahead anyway. And believe and trust in yourself. So you can explore an experiment deeply accessing the adjacent possible as a creator.
So you might be asking yourself what’s next.
Well, there’s a lot that’s next. Let me tell you a little story.
Last year I was writing this book, The Artist’s Journey Creativity Reflection Journal, and I realized that there was more and that I simply couldn’t fit it all in here.
More on the adjacent possible about ugly paintings, first drafts, experimentation, the inner landscape, zero to one, growth mindset versus static mindset and much, much more. And I realized that it belonged in a live training.
And so I decided to open up an immersive creativity program, which opens up this February with you invited.
So I’m excited to introduce the Big Creativity Immersion Program. It’s going to be an online experience in February, and I would love to have you join us for it, and we’ll give you more details as we get closer to the time.

But if something is calling you, listen and go for it and say yes.
