Renaissance Woman

When I think of Beth Rosen, the word “Renaissance Woman” immediately comes to mind. We ‘met’, although not actually face to face YET, through The Next Top Spiritual Author contest last year. We were among the top 280 entrants to make it into what I called The Round Two Crew, narrowed down from 2800 entries. When we began conversing, I recognized a kindred spirit. She is one of the few people I know who wears ‘more hats’ than I do!

 
How do you live your bliss?
 
I don’t really think about living my bliss but when I realize that I’m not enjoying the journey, I stop what I’m doing and start doing what I love, which is to create, whether it be through writing, painting, drawing, filming, dancing or helping others. Laughter is a big part of my life so I write comedy all the time. It helps to keep my spirits lifted.
 

You are quite the Renaissance Woman. How do you refer to yourself? 

 

 I refer to myself as an author, film producer, actress, screenwriter, comedy writer, songwriter, illustrator, healer, professor of yoga and attorney. 
 
 Where does your creative inspiration come from?

That’s an interesting question. It arises effortlessly when I’m not focused on it. Sometimes I write entire scripts in my head while I’m running. I get creative flashes all the time. Anything can trigger it: something someone says, something I see, something from my past, a thought, a person, a blissful moment, even a sad moment.

When I am consciously creating, meaning when I sit down and write or film a video, I take those moments of divine inspiration and I flesh them out. When I am relaxed and blissful, they take on a life of their own and I simply ride the wave. I usually turn ideas inside out, upside down, round and round until I’m satisfied with the results – I’m a bit of a perfectionist.

When you set goals for yourself, such as completing a film project, what keeps you on track?

Many of my projects involve other people. I love to connect to others and co-create. The thrill of finishing and working with others helps to keep me on track. I love to entertain and make other people smile so that also helps.

When I feel like throwing in the towel, I use certain power mantras to keep my spirits lifted and maintain focus: “Hocus Pocus Focus.” “Never give up. Give it your all.” “Don’t get stuck on yuck.” Then there are the gentle reminders from friends, fans and enlightened masters I work with who continue to ask to see my unfinished projects. Those gentle nudges help to put me back on track and head for the finish line.

How do you take your yoga off the mat?

It’s never just about me and it’s never just about you. We’re all in this together. So when I become off centered in life, I stop, come back to myself so I can feel peaceful and calm like I do on the yoga mat, and then I can expand from that place and enjoy whatever it is I’m doing.

When do you actually take “Beth time” to simply BE?

I probably don’t take enough “Beth time to simply BE.” I live and work on the water so I take mini-breaks to enjoy nature. But they don’t last very long because I usually get some flash of genius while relaxing only a few moments and then I’m off and running on another creative idea. I try to have a camera with me at all times. You never know what will show up. I also take quality time with my cats. We’re one big happy family. They remind me from time to time to put down my work and come play again.

What is that has your time and attention in terms of creative work?

I’m currently working on a movie-making course and some scripts for film and television. That is taking most of my time at the moment. I also constantly add new content to my 2 websites. I also have several books that I have published and a few more that I would like to finish.

What is the legacy you would like to leave?

I would like to leave a legacy of love, creativity and breaking through limited belief systems – pushing the envelope to make the impossible possible. I plan on implementing a global joint venture for peace, harmony, abundance and the joy of living. There are many moving peaces to that, including the entertainment industry which is why I am working so diligently to break into television and film. Enlightenment is a huge part of that as well. Recently I have gotten in touch with yogis, swamis and ascended masters from around the globe, some of who have tracked me down because they are aware of the template I have created for that joint venture. It’s very interesting and exciting at the same time. They won’t let me quit and they keep coming back to “bliss me” and encourage me to enjoy the journey.
