I am in awe of creativity, and I love to encourage everyone to discover and affirm the  

creative being inside. Unleash it, open to it and believe that you have it!
I also want to place this "warning label" near your heart: Do not allow yourself to be
a harsh critic and judge of your work or allow anyone else to judge, re-form, change,
prematurely advise or recreate your inspired idea. Nothing will destroy your creative
spirit more quickly. Trust your instincts, your intuition, your creative whispers and
seeds. Trust.
Your work does not need to be crafted in a cookie cutter manner. There isn't one right
way. Enjoy the organic blossoming of your inspired wonderment.
Surround yourself with supportive people who are naturally encouraging and have the
ability to listen or see with their hearts, not their minds. In fact, my feeling is that it is
best not to share your initial creation at all.
The beginning is the sacred seed. Enjoy the sacredness of the initial ideas and don't be
eager to offer it for reaction too quickly, and when you are ready to give it to the world,
make sure it is with people who won't put insensitive negativity all over what you have
just created.
Discern with whom you will allow your work to be seen or heard, and enjoy the fact that
you just invented something that added just a little more spice and dimension to our
beautiful world.
Remember, there is no set formula for creating anything. Often the scribble, the simple,
the raw and vulnerable is more interesting and reaches the hearts of people more than
the perfectly crafted.
Just create... without the critical judge... arms open wide. It is your birthright to express
yourself and to feel safe enough to follow through on your inspired ideas. Don't
worry about right, wrong and perfect. Just let it flow and respect everyone's process,
especially your own.

Creativity Workshops:








"We enjoyed your concert so much like all the other families seemed to enjoy you too. Marcel felt special when you called him to hold Monkey. We can tell your music and messages are already getting into his little head. The other day we heard him saying "I'm an amazing person today!" while playing on his own. We were so happy... There should be more Cheryl Melodys in the world! Thanks for your music and the precious moments you give to so many families like us."

Un abrazo from Marcel and from us too.
