Creative Living Beyond Fear: Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert


Creativity without fear: Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

The Signature of All Things was my first Elizabeth Gilbert read. It was a book that made me appreciate mosses and at that time I truly challenged myself to finish it as it was a long 700-page read and so glad I did. Then her celebrated memoir, Eat, Pray, Love. I was so tempted to go looking for Ketut in Bali, the medicine man after reading this book. She has many other books, but I haven’t read them yet. Then this Big Magic.

As I sit down to reflect on the pages I find myself drawn into this idea that creativity isn't just a skill but a sacred force pulsating through every aspect of our life. This book isn't just a read; it's an invitation — a beckoning call to explore the depths of our creative souls and unearth the magic that lies dormant within us.

Gilbert's words aren't just ink on paper; they're whispers of encouragement, nudging us to embrace our creative urges with wild abandon. Through her anecdotes and insights, she peels back the layers of fear and self-doubt that often shroud our artistic aspirations, revealing the raw beauty that emerges when we dare to create without inhibition.

What struck me most profoundly about "Big Magic" is Gilbert's unwavering belief in the inherent creativity that resides within each of us. She reminds us that creativity isn't reserved for the elite few but is a birthright bestowed upon all who dare to embrace it. Each page is a gentle reminder that the act of creation is a sacred dance between the individual and the universe.

One of the most transformative lessons I gleaned from Gilbert's words is the notion of curiosity over fear. She challenges us to approach our creative endeavors with a childlike wonder, to revel in the joy of exploration without the weight of expectation. In doing so, she empowers us to confront our fears head-on, to acknowledge their presence but not allow them to stifle our creative spirit.

"Big Magic" isn't just a book; it's a lifeline—a guiding light illuminating the path toward self-discovery and artistic fulfillment. It's a testament to the transformative power of creativity and a reminder that the pursuit of passion is a journey worth embarking upon.

"Big Magic" isn't just a story; it's a manifesto—a declaration of the boundless potential that lies within each of us, waiting to be unleashed upon the world.

I also have some fears and doubts sometimes when it comes to my creativity… but what the heck, there’s no rewind in this world, we have to pass through time just once… get your groove going whatever that means to you, and let out. Not really for the world but for yourself.
