Tip#1035: How Movies Inspire Creativity, Part 2, Sing Street

Since recovering from the “spiritual flu” (see tip#1033), I have started decluttering my home which uncovered some very old, unresolved fears. These fears involve the letting go of my original artworks from multiple art exhibits and all the way back to art college and high school. I believe this could be a psychological focal point that I now have the opportunity to resolve so other areas in my life, mental health and career can finally movie forward!

I am excited about this opportunity and feel more confident then ever to face this fear of letting go! I also believe this awareness is the result of my recent two week, cleansing, spiritual flu which in turn was the result of the powerful 2nd session I had with Rhythmical Massage Therapy (see tip#1029). I highly recommend this alternative healing method for releasing old, trapped emotions in the body. See: Rhythmical Massage Therapy by Elias Abdel Ahad.

My attention to my artworks also made me see a pattern of not letting go of other creative works such as my music and song recordings. I actually faced this fear back in October 2016 when I finally released one of my favourite and personal songs called “In the Film” (see tip#1000). I wrote and recorded it 25 years ago and edited a music video for the song so I could finally let go and share it with the world. It felt great to finally release the song and can feel my other unreleased songs will eventually touch the hearts of people everywhere! See: In the Film music video

Sing Street (2016)

The musical coming-of-age comedy-drama film, Sing Street, is about a Dublin teenager Conor "Cosmo" (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) in the 80’s who forms a rock 'n' roll band to win the heart of aspiring model Raphina (Lucy Boynton). This is such a feel-good film filled with catchy original songs and classic 80’s music and fun, quirky characters and performances by the leads as well as Jack Reynor as Conor’s brother Brendan and Mark McKenna as Conor’s writing partner Eamon. See: movie trailer

There is so much to love about this film! If you love 80’s music you will automatically love this movie. And if you have a dream to express yourself through music then this will inspire you to follow your desire. The film really explores Conor’s creative drive to express his love for Raphina through song. Plus his transformation, both visually and musically, is very inspirational to witness!

I don’t know why I waited so long to see this fantastic film and yet the timing was once again highly synchronistic with my current re-evaluation of my life and career and the decluttering of my home and inner fears. It’s movies like this that make learning about myself more fun than it being painful and I hope this film does the same for you!

Movies about art, music or writing can inspire you to unleash your own creative drive, talents and gifts. They can also inspire you to let go of thoughts or feelings trapped inside or holding you back. And remember it takes courage and perseverance to either express yourself creatively or to let go of your creations into the world. Find your courage today!
