Creators practice PRESENCE at many levels, and the first of these is deceptively simple:  Just. Show. Up. 

Regularly placing your body in the space where your creating happens is the best way to ensure that inspiration knows where to find you.  Physical presence is always step one. 

Next comes mental presence, the practice of which feels like an inner inquiry that drives a series of nuanced inner adjustments:  Is my mind in the same place as my body?  Is it calm, free of distractions, and attentive to the present moment? 

And finally comes the practice of spiritual presence:  practicing checking in with yourself on the quality of the energies you are bringing to your work.  This might sound like:  Are my energies aligned with my highest intention for this project?   Am I grateful for this precious time to be in relationship to my creating practice?  Am I open to not knowing what comes next and allowing surprises to occur?  Am I ready to relinquish control and partner with what this project is asking for?   

"I sit under my tree until I am quiet and gratefully ready to go to work"  - Maya Angelou in an interview about her creating process.

PRESENCE is one of the seven-part Core Practices of Creating series.
