Powerful Placement • Powerful Presence

Everyone needs a Surface

Everyone needs a surface. This is the space that opens up creativity.

When surfaces are cluttered and stacks of paper abound, pots and pans rule, unfinished projects are side by side and many opened containers of makeup, toothpaste, soap and Q-tips create a landscape, well, Genius is shut off.  The mind can only hold so much and if overwhelm is present, then all of the thought streams either go to avoiding those spaces of overwhelm or trying to find a space that is tranquil and open.  That’s when we go to a coffee shop that has Wifi to work or watch a movie or to socialize.  It drives us from our home.  There is no room for us.

Take a look at your surfaces and see if there is room for your creativity, whether it be cooking, organizing, writing, working or just simply to place something beautiful that makes you happy.

Just do one surface at a time.  Give yourself a moment of clarity.  It will lead to other moments of clarity.  And pretty soon your creativity will bloom and grow into your space. Ahh…there you are.  All of you. Thank you.

Thanks, Pat. It’s extraordinary how just one small change can create an enormous opening…


You are so welcome, Linda! I know that get the importance of this!

This is a wonderful topic with challenges and solutions offered in a brief space. I think you have been peeking at my surfaces! I love every word you shared!


Thank you, Donna! Just start somewhere and the flow of energy will begin! It’s like when you are looking for something in a drawer and decide to clean the drawer (forgetting that what you are looking for isn’t there) and then another drawer and another. Then, you notice the baseboard and decide to clean it also.And right there, under the baseboard is what you were looking for that was supposed to be in the drawer. Everything is connected! Just begin! It can be fun….

As always Ellen your writing is poetic and inspiring, gentle but direct. I just cleaned the studio today, all the surfaces are waiting.


Alll-right!!!!!! You are ready. Doesn’t it feel wonderful to be ahead of it? Looking forward to hearing what you bring in to grace those surfaces, my friend!
