"Creativity is an Act of Bravery"
My energy is dedicated to supporting the dangerous artist, the authentic speaker, and all other adventurers brave enough to go outside their comfort zone to explore the extraordinary that lives in them.
And then there is
THE CREATIVE PAUSE
Some call it meditation
, and others deep breathing and yet others just stare at the clouds for periods of time. It all ends up contributing mightily to INSIGHT AND INSPIRATION.
Do you ever stop in the middle of the day and close your door, turn off the phone and just stare out the window (if you have one) for a full minute concentrating on the sky, or trees or grass? Do you have a picture or painting that allows you to leave your mind behind and just drift for a couple of minutes? Surprise yourself and schedule three or four specific times a day where you journey to these places and see what happens.
I get insights that later seem obvious and easy. I get inspiration and movement towards an uncluttered path moving to a goal I didn’t know I had or one that I’ve been pursuing. I get nothing and then everything – not every time. Sometimes I don’t get anything at all over and over again but eventually something happens that would never happened if I hadn’t PAUSED.
I’m very interested in your experiences with CREATIVE PAUSING. If nothing else, it will create calm for a few minutes and rest – so essential to fuel the rest of your day in a better way.
