Simple Ways to Be More Creative
Being creative can be a very elusive and mysterious mindset. We often find ourselves feeling creative in very small and fleeting moments that too often pass quickly. Logical thinking dominates the majority of our day to day thinking, so we rarely have a chance to access our creative self.
Here are 3 ways to access your creative inner voice.
Every person has a creative self. Many times this yearning to be creative is dominated by unsettling thoughts that squelch creative thinking. Creative thinking is actually not thinking at all.
1. Flow: Flow is like float. Floating is usually slow, and more of a Delta brainwave frame of mind. It's akin to daydreaming, a very important component in the creative process. You can visualize yourself floating like a cloud, moving slowly over the landscape. It's an easy way to become serene. Or you can float on a white fluffy cloud; not the stormy fast moving ones. You can also visualize yourself floating in a small boat on a calm lake. When you have these slow experiences within your visualizations, you start to access the right brain, the side that is a rich ground for creative thinking
2. Feel: Allow your feeling or feelings to be with you. Honor the feeling for what it is. Don't push it away, or try to change it. If angry, allow angry to be with you for awhile. When you recognize negative states of mind, by simply allowing them to be, they have a tendency to lose power. Also allowing feelings of joy and celebration will uplift your state of mind and clearing away instability or insecure feelings.
3. Forgive: When you forgive yourself for your faults and imperfections, you are "softening" your thinking. When you soften your thinking towards yourself, you also forgive others more readily. This soft thinking contributes to a better world. When you forgive yourself, you have more clarity and space for creative and positive thoughts to occur.
