In the space of a few months Elle and I have had people tell us that they had a similar idea to Souls of Byron Bay or that their partner or boss did. This is the beauty of an idea, it wants to be birthed so much that it floats into the minds of many and the one who is ready to take it on, commit, love and nurture it, is the chosen one, in our case the chosen two. I love the idea of a meeting point and that when the idea and the person are ready to meet, it is like falling in love, your defenses drop down, and universal signals are sent, coincidences are organised to cross your path, it will wake you up at night, it will do anything to capture your attention. You then feel compelled to take on this adventure or you decide to let it go allowing another the opportunity to try it on.
Elizabeth Gilbert describes a creative idea as: Super natural, mystical, an other worldly experience. ‘Creativity is a force of enchantment - not entirely human in its origins. Not entirely rational, modern or conventional, decidedly unscientific. Ideas are disembodied energetic life forms. They are separate from us but capable of interacting with us.
