Pillars of Creation
“Don’t die with your music still in you” - Neale Donald Walsh
Reflect back on the exercise of gathering all the impactful conversations that make you come alive... the passion points that seem to bubble up inside longing to be expressed.
I invite you to think of content as a creative expression of your inner wisdom that makes it possible for your soul expression to extend your unique voice, vision and message to extend beyond your intermediate space and expand outwards to activate those who are awaiting your medicine, your soul song to move them.
With this perspective…let's dive into contemplating the 4-5 inspired content topics that will act as pillars for the blossoming of ideas to grow from.
CHOOSING YOUR CONTENT PILLARS
What Are Content Pillars
Content pillars are the categories or topics that that will be the center point at the core of the content you create to share your message that you want to mostly be known for. You can think of your content pillars as the the core topics you feel inspired to create and would love to be known for.
You can revisit your toolkit from the methodology you created last week and translate it into your core pillars for your content creation and messaging. Identify 4-5 core content pillars that you feel inspired to share your wisdom around. These are the topics that you feel pulled or called to share as forms of creative expression through written word or vocal expression.
Example Core Pillars for the Soul Path Accelerator
- Soul Purpose/Dharma
- Creating a Soul Aligned Offering
People will begin to associate certain topics with you and associate you as being an expert on these subjects. Just like neural networks are formed in the brain, when someone sees your content their brain will begin to associate you with specific topics that they trust for certain information. Like a cosmic radio, you will be the station they tune their awareness and attention to when they seek trusted advice and resources.
Everything you create will blossom into a garden organically around these centermost seeds of creation.
