It's been a long time since I've writ a manifesto. I've been hearing a lot of fear in circulation, so here's my response. If I missed one, feel free to add it in the comments. Let's make sure to cover it all. Here goes:
I have faith that because I am a woman, I am a fertile, creative being.
I have faith that my wild ways are teaching me valuable lessons about loving deep, exploring the frontiers, and transcending judgment of myself and others.
I have faith that my acts of creation have a healing effect on the planet, and that I do not need to personally deliver aid to a third world country in order to spread mass seeds of goodness and beauty.
I have faith that I deserve the time to create in my unique way.
I have faith that my children will be okay when I do this.
I have faith that my partner will be okay (and not abandon me) when I do this.
I have faith that creating my works is not, nor will it ever be, a selfish act.
I have faith that when something shifts for me, and I change, my dear ones will still love and appreciate me.
I have faith in my ability to connect with Source and download inspiration from Sky, Fire, Waters, and Earth.
I have faith that I will overcome feeling guilty about taking time for myself.
I have faith that I'll get to a place where nothing will stop me from creating when I require it.
I have faith that I can clear the obstacles that stand between me and my exquisite creative life, and I am not afraid to ask for help with this.
I have faith that my creative acts can sustain me.
I have faith in my ability to find out what wants to be expressed from deep within me that is my very own.
I have faith that I'll be able to balance my spiritual creative life with my family life.
I have faith that my creative babies know how to birth themselves, that I am the carrier and the nurturer, but ultimately they have a life of their own to live, and I must give it to them.
I have faith that I will find my creative community and spiritual sisters.
I have faith that I am not Too Much, Too Big or Too Vocal.
I have faith that I am not Too Little, Too Small or Too Quiet.
I have faith that my voice and my messages are important and create vitality for others.
I have faith that the vibrant threads that are my future projects are on their way to me now.
I have faith that my work, art and life will be well supported.
In this I Trust.
