I was recently talking with a couple of friends about creativity and these list of qualities and thoughts came out.
Creativity seems to be so elusive to the normal mind yet everyone is doing it all the time. You created your career that you have and can re-create it whenever you choose to. [Isn’t re-create, recreate, an interesting word. It takes re-create-ing, recreating, to re-create your life.]You create what you say to someone. You create answers to peoples’ questions and to life challenges.
Life is a creative endeavor. Look around and acknowledge your creativity. Then realize that you can be creative whenever you choose to… it just takes recognizing that you already. If you want to enhance your ability to be creative on cue, when you need those answers, then take the Silva Method classes. It is simply an educational system that teaches people the mental ability to channel creativity.
There are qualities that exist whenever you are being creative. Some of these qualities include:
- Being playful
- Usually you’re also joyous
- Definitely have to be light-hearted, ie no attachment to outcome, no expectations
- You have surrendered to the process
- Scientifically you have shifted from left-brain logical to right-brain ‘no time, no space’ creative Mind
- It will always feel like you are making it up… because you are
- You are tuned into the unknown.
So, take the reverse approach when you want to be creative. Access within you the above qualities after you have posed the question that you want an answer to. Go about life and the creative idea will come.
The main downfall appears to be that as most people get older the fear of the unknown causes them to not want to do anything different. It is easier to stay where you are rather than risk change. It is easier to live a comfortable life in discomfort rather than doing something different. That works for many. And when you want something different in life you have to do something different. Ultimatley it’s a choice.
