A few weeks ago I made a pendant based on a free tutorial by Zoraida Bros. I was then inspired to tweak it with a few of my own inspired techniques. I was thrilled with the new pieces of jewelry and more and more ideas kept flowing. My creative muse was hard at work providing me with a steady stream of new ideas.
No, she did not copy my creations! No, I did not copy her creations! So how did this happen? It turns out that no one person is the creator of an idea or physical piece of art.
Well, perhaps my creative muse is also actively inspiring other artists. It turns out that she's not 'my' creative muse at all! She's 'our' creative muse! (I just looked up muse and it is said that there are only 9 muses. So, perhaps....) Perhaps we all share the same or simular muse. Perhaps we are all connected through an unseen loving and creative energy that we are all fortunate to be part of and we are merely the hands that are used to bring more into our physical world.
So I calmed down and said thank you to that unseen creative energy for providing ideas and for shaing them with many artists.

Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, yet are experienced as occurring together in a meaningful manner. The concept of synchronicity was first described in this terminology by Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss psychologist, in the 1920s.
