How and Why I Started CreatingWithin
Hi Whats up, I’m Stephanie and I started CreatingWithin back in 2012 when I was experiencing a painful breakup- that was of my choosing. During that time I was writing to cope with the decision I had to make and the changes that would follow. See, journal writing for me has always been a place where I can connect with my Higher Self, with the deeper part of myself that is wiser. It’s my safe space where I can tell the truth to myself, about myself and by doing that I’m able to connect beyond. Gain the clarity, insight, and wisdom; I need, to work through my emotions and inner struggles from a higher perspective; you could call it Soul Writing.
Back to how I started CreatingWithin.
While I was experiencing my breakup, I felt a divine pull, a voice really, that whispered to me late one night ( as I was writing in my journal) that I needed to share my writings with others. So at that moment I listened to my inner voice and asked it to give me a name, a name to publish under, and within seconds the name CreatingWithin came to me. Right then and there I jumped on WordPress and purchased the domain, and I began to post my journal entries from that moment on. As a way to share with others my inner struggles, in hopes, the other people reading it would know they weren’t alone in the things they were experiencing or feeling.
Since then, my blogging journey has been one of many ups and down.
As I started to gain some mild traction on my site and eventually videos, close people to me began to share their opinions with me on how I should be doing things. And the more I listened to them, the more I began to doubt myself and second guess what I would post or not post. I started focusing more on what others were thinking that I became less able and willing to be transparent about the things I was struggling with and eventually, I stopped believing in myself all together. (Which totally sucks, because belief in oneself is crucial. It’s one of the most essential ingredients in creating and manifesting our visions or anything, really. )
So basically, I’m sharing all this with you to show you how – I got in my own way – combine that with my lack of inconsistency and it went all downhill from there…
But that’s not the case anymore!
I’m here as your mentor and guide, to share with you the things I’m learning and have learned about the inner world and how to create your life from the inside out.
I’m here for YOU!
To remind you of all that is within you and the power, you hold. I show you where to look, but you must be ready and willing to do the inner work, which I will call inner play. Because I know the word “work”, might scare you off. Work? phew, who wants to work more. Instead, we will think of it as inner play, because after all we are creatingwithin.

I have a passion and a gift for spiritual and personal growth and they say you are what you consistently do, and well, this is the realm I have spent the most hours in. Since I was a child, I’ve always been in tune, having a deep connection with the beyond, source energy, God, the Universe- whichever word best resonates with you.
But that doesn’t mean that growing up was easy as I actually felt very much alone, I never honestly felt that I belong anywhere and that feeling made it difficult for me to connect with people. The sense of “separation” is what drove me, even more inside myself and it was through that where I learned a lot about myself, life and people. So much, that I’ve been able to experience the other side of the spectrum, which is feeling so connected to everything and everyone.
I enjoy life, people and most of all the synchronicities that exist in the everyday life, even more, when one is in tune. I follow my intuition, and I’m not afraid of change, and because of it, I have been able to manifest all the things I’ve envisioned and wanted in my life thus far.
Back in April 2014, I decided to sell everything I owned. I quit my job and decided to explore the world by myself for an entire year with only $10,000 and no plan. I traveled to 11 countries and over 22 cities.
Seven months after returning from my travels – I met the love of my life, fell in love, got engaged within (4) months, moved to a new city (Detroit) – don’t let it fool you Michigan is pretty awesome! I got my real estate license, started a family business with my husband (investment real estate), got married ( 7 ) months later on September 2016, got pregnant (1) month after our wedding, and in July 2017 I had a beautiful baby boy. That is a lot of creation and manifestation in very short time. If I do say so myself!
