“Hello? It’s god calling.”
“I’ll be right with you, just let me answer this email.”
What strands connect you to the outside world when you sit down and write? Is your cell phone with you? Do you answer it? Can people see that you are on-line and invite you to chat? Is Skype sitting there winking at you, asking you to notice who’s around?
When are connected, in all the myriad ways that we can be connected with each other in today’s technology, our energy becomes dispersed and thinned. This is especially true of anyone who creates on a computer, since computers hold so many of our other channels of communication. When we are pulled in all the directions described above, when part of our attention goes to the email messages and other online notices that we are surrounded with, the voice of our spirit can be drowned.
Like AV equipment, we too have line in and line out ports. Each line into and out of us channels energy, like current running through plugs. To create from a deep connection to Source requires that we be home to answer the phone.
So, if you feel fidgety, unfocused, uninspired—unplug. Disconnect from every single channel that is asking for your attention so that you may connect to the one that holds your creative connection with god. After you are finished writing, you can switch from invisible back to available—if you still want to.
