Is it Procrastination or Pregnancy?

Sometimes people mistake being pregnant with procrastinating.

Oh, I should probably clarify..!

Pregnant with an idea, project, book or new stage of life.

Pregnant with your next creation.

In this video, I share some of the ways I “midwife” myself through a creative pregnancy.


Procrastination is driven by fear.

Creative Pregnancy is driven by faith.

Have patience with yourself and NURTURE yourself through your creative process.

    I have heard this concept talked about before as letting the energy of an idea build and using the analogy of allowing sexual energy to build before release, but personally I found the pregnancy analogy more helpful. I will be interested to see the ‘birth’ of this idea. I love your artwork. I do not currently have an intentional journaling practice, but it is something I am looking at starting. I do meditate and have reflection time daily, but don’t intentionally journal as such.
