Hi, I'm Aine Rock

I’m an actress by training and it has mostly been a side hustle as my business grew and the demands of my family increased.  Two years ago I decided to step away from acting, which really just meant calling my agent and telling them not to send me on auditions.  

And for a while, I felt huge relief.  It hadn’t been fulfilling for a long time, and it created a vacuum of time and space that felt really good.

But I noticed that I was missing out on something.  And I couldn’t quite figure out what it was. I had a successful business, a beautiful family, great girlfriends and community…

I was missing my own creative life force.  When we express ourselves we encounter a different understanding of our own experience. That’s when I started writing. And it connected me back into flow.  It connected me to a more spacious energy. I find when I am being creative when I am expanding and expressing myself fully I simply feel better. I laugh more. I take things a little less seriously. 

There’s so many ways to access a state of flow: exercise, meditation, spending time with friends and family, but really the fastest most direct way to connect to flow is through creativity. 

What do you love to do? What did you love to do when you were seven? What about four? Go ahead and do that thing for an hour.  Just an hour. And afterwards just observe your mood. Happier? Lighter? More connected?

Our physical bodies are deeply connected to our emotions.  I recently sat down with Andee Love, an embodiment coach, and […]
