Certainly you’re aware that lots of people have bumper stickers stating what they brake for, such as:
“I brake for wildlife”
or (here in the Southwest)
“I brake for tarantulas”.
Just think. The way we all race around, going from here to there, if people didn’t brake for these things, their existence would be drastically reduced, right?
So it’s wonderful that people brake for those things!
In a similar way, our willingness to
brake break for creativity will help it thrive, too!
The Creative State
Do you ever notice how, when you wake up in the morning, you’re in a super intuitive and creative space? That’s when a lot of exciting ideas come flooding in. You’re inspired.
This also happens when you’re relaxed and not in “thinking mode”, e.g. taking a walk, relaxing in a warm bath, driving long deserted stretches, etc.
In those cases, you’re not actively thinking … You’re more or less receiving. Your antennae are out there tuning into ideas that weren’t within your scope until then.
You’re connecting with that field of all possibilities … with your Source.
Touching in periodically with that space of no-mind puts you in that same state.
And that’s where your power, creativity, and intuitive wisdom reside.
Today we’re going to open to that space intentionally. And as you practice this one simple activity, both your creativity and intuition will get stronger and will grow day by day.
Today: Break for Creativity
Whenever you think of it, take a moment to break from what you are doing and simply be here now.
When you do this, let go of actively thinking and use all your senses. Look around and see what’s going on in your environment. Hear the birds singing? Feel the breeze on your arm? Notice any scents? Do you have any tastes in your mouth?
Do a quick scan from head to toe: What does your body feel like physically? How are you feeling emotionally?
And now, without focusing on any particular thing, just allow your attention to wander.
Is there any thought that pops into this empty space you are creating? Or anything you seem to just know? Note all of these things.
Taking these mini-breaks gives your creativity a little space to breathe.
More often than not, this will in turn lead to great ideas, inspiration, and yes, even intuition about what you were doing that you wouldn’t have had otherwise.
As you do this periodically, you’ll benefit from these brief “re-groupings” and you’ll notice that a wonderful clarity remains with you go about your day.
There will be space between your thoughts for ideas and inspiration to enter your awareness.
Those ideas are coming from your essence, and opening to them keeps you on track to fulfill your deepest dreams.
