Creative cycles ask to be fostered in specific ways
- Prepare in advance – awareness & perspective
- Open the field of potential – commit
- Select the elements
- Harmonize the elements selected
- Complete the cycle
- Close the cycle
Sometimes, we get stuck in one of those six places. Perhaps we haven’t closed an old cycle and we’re asking ourselves and others to open a new one. Perhaps we haven’t committed to the project in question and the field of potential lies closed to us.
Every creative endeavor requires the creative energies of both masculine doing and feminine being. We have an idea, a feeling, a sense and then we decide what to do with it. Sometimes, we have all the senses and no way forward – creative overwhelm. Sometimes, we have all of the structure and none of the sense of magic – lifeless.
Ida supports you in asking yourself the right (and sometimes hard) questions in order to reveal a way forward that feels right.
“All great work is preparing yourself for the accident to happen.”
― Sydney Lumet
Are you prepared? Are you prepared to be prepared? Do you want to be more prepared, so that you can expand yourself into many dimensions and be awake and alive to all the beautiful accidents that are meant for you? And through you, that are meant for others?
“Anyone can look for fashion in a boutique or history in a museum. The creative person looks for history in a hardware store and fashion in an airport.”

Arts & Entertainment Professionals
The pressure to perform creatively in a creative environment can be intense, with “better, bigger and more than before” often being asked of you. Creativity coaching and mentoring can teach you to find and trust your own creative process, even in the midst of extraordinary pressure to perform.
“Making a record is a lot like surgery without an anesthetic. You first have to cut yourself up the middle. Then you have to rip out every single organ, every single part and lay them on a table. You then need to examine the parts, and the reality of the situation hits you. You find yourself saying things like “I didn’t know that part was so ugly.” Or “I better get a professional opinion about that.” You go to bed hollow and then back into the operating room the next day. . .facing every fear, every disgusting thing you hate about yourself. Then you pop it all back in, sew yourself shut and perform. . . you perform like your life depended on it—-and in those perfect moments you find beauty you never knew existed. You find yourself and you friends all over again, you find something to fight for, something to love. Something to show the world.”
― Gerard Way
