what do you need to teach danielle raine creativity coaching blog

I’d like to share with you a recent epiphany – in case it helps you with whatever is your biggest challenge at the moment…

You may know I have been studying the creative process and the principles of human potential for over 25 years.


Well, one reason is that I LOVE learning.

(My primary archetype is the Sage.)

But the main reason I’ve been studying creativity and our creative power for over half of my life is that I am obsessed with understanding how we can live our best lives.

Without getting too philosophical, I believe that life is a gift and that our only obligation is to make the most of our time here –  to enjoy it as much as possible, to live our best possible life.

Aiming to understand how we can do that is what drew me to studying the creative life – because I believe expression is one vital ingredient of living well.

And so as a student of this work, I’ve learned a fair amount about how we can be our best selves, create our best work and live the healthiest, wealthiest and happiest version of this lifetime.

These learnings are the material I’ve been sharing in Your Creative Dharma.

But do you know who I think has received the most benefit from the material I’ve been teaching?


The tools and techniques that I have developed over the years – that have worked for me in such magical and delightful ways – these are working for me on a whole new level.

I thought I had a pretty good grasp of these principles before – which is why I wanted to put them together in this programme.

But over the last few weeks and months, I’ve come to understand How? and Why? and What? so much more deeply than I did before I began teaching this work.

Maybe you’ve heard the saying;

Teach what you need to learn.

Well, it’s true!

And so I was wondering how my little epiphany might be able to help you…

Because whatever challenge you’re currently facing – creative or otherwise – you’ve probably given lots of thought and enquiry into resolving it.

You will have already learned some strategies and solutions that have helped, even if only a little.

So, my suggestion is: can you teach what you’ve learned to others?

Aside from the confidence boost, the good feelings and the good karma you receive when you help a fellow human – teaching what you’re seeking to understand helps YOU.

You will understand more deeply the nature of the challenge.

And I believe it will also trigger some new insights, inspiration or clarity that will assist you in some way.

If you’ve been stuck with a particular issue or problem for a while – maybe it’s worth a try?

How can you teach what you need to learn?

I know it sounds paradoxical, but I’m discovering that this is the nature of many of life’s solutions.

And even if it’s not logical – I can’t deny the profound difference I’m seeing in my own life.

So, if this tactic intrigues you, if you’re curious about how this might work for you – I invite you to give it a go.

Use your hard-won wisdom to help someone who is facing a similar challenge to you.

And then watch out for the beneficial ripple effects that come back to you. 🙂

And, as always, I’d love to hear how you get on!

Wishing you a wonderful week,

PS If you’d like to dive deeper into this principle, I highly recommend The Diamond Cutter by Geshe Michael Roach and Lama Christie McNally.

I’m such a fan of this idea and this book that I designed a range of gifts in its honour.
