Redgold Creativity

Welcome to Redgold Creativity! On this page you’ll find life coaching practices for creative women: mixing magic with mindfulness. These fun, free exercises based on women’s wisdom from the past will enhance your creativity.

http://coleface.com.au/category/annual-reports/feed/ About Me: My natural pen name Eliza Redgold is based upon the Gaelic meaning of my full name, Dr Elizabeth Reid Boyd. I’m an author and academic. I write fiction (as Eliza Redgold) and non-fiction (as Elizabeth Reid Boyd). These are tips I’ve picked up along the way that I’m delighted to share with you.

iq otion demo account About Red Gold: The redgold rose is a floribunda (meaning many-flowering).  Another name for red gold is rose gold – gold mixed with copper that comes out a beautiful rosy colour. For some images, check out my gorgeous rosy red gold Pinterest page.

English folklore has it that if you help a fairy, you will be rewarded with red gold. Known as ‘rubedo’ it’s a transformative stage in magical alchemy and the search for the philosopher’s stone. Poets have also used red gold as a metaphor for creativity.  It’s amazing to me that recent ‘portraits of the mind’ capturing the creative brain are coloured red gold. We’ve possessed the philospher’s stone all along!

I practice mindfulness and meditation, and teach these practices to my university students. In 2017,  The Secrets of Mindful Beauty was published by Skyhorse Publishing, New York. I’m fascinated by how much more creative we are when we slow down and let ideas grow. Our minds are truly magical.

A Grace for Books: Mindful Reading

http://colombiatourstickets.com/?viowq=recherche-prenom-garcon-pas-courant&ec6=2e image (17)

Why have we no grace for books, those spiritual repasts – a grace before Milton – a grace before Shakespeare – a devotional exercise proper to be said before reading the Faeire Queen?‘ ~ Charles Lamb

Of late I’ve been thinking about how we read. It has changed so much in the last decade, with e-books and reading on line. We still read (maybe even more than before) but we read differently (though many noblewomen in the past read romance and books on spirituality and self-development just like we do today!)

Historically, noblewomen used Books of Hours, beautiful books of prayers, to mark their time. Richly illuminated with pictures of saints, Bible stories, and even signs of the Zodiac, they were sometimes encrusted with jewels. Some called girdle books were small enough to be hung from the waist. Books of Hours contained a calendar, gospel lessons, psalms and special prayers to be said at certain hours of the day: Prime (6am, or upon waking) Terce (9am) Sext (midday) None (3pm) Vespers (6pm) and Compline (9pm, or upon retiring).

The illustration above is taken from a fifteenth century Book of Hours. She is Virgo (my star sign).  I’m going to try the custom of marking my time with a Book of Hours by doing some daily devotional reading.

If you want to join me, here’s how:

Select your own Book of Hours: a prayer book, a hymnal, a spiritual text, a day book, or even a book of poetry. From this book, choose a short quotation, text or excerpt to use as a daily devotional reading (it only needs to be a few lines long). Or you can simply open your chosen book by chance and read the first section you see. Read your quotation in the morning and again at night. Try this for about a month for the most benefit. If you skip a day, just go back to it the next.

Alternatively, try the traditional marking of hours, reading a short text or quotation from your chosen Book of Hours, on the hour, every hour, for a whole day. (We check our phones that often, so why not try this instead!) It might sound arduous, but is found to be relaxing. Build this into a regular practice, or use it as a meditative technique to slow you down when you are feeling particularly rushed or overwhelmed.

Marking time with a devotional reading only takes a moment as the clock strikes, but it creates an entirely different sense of time and increases our mindfulness. Our days will feel very different when we mark the golden hours.

Wishing you blessed reading,
