How To Channel Creativity At Any Time


How To Channel Creativity At Any Time


Creativity is a lot like oil. Society needs it in ever increasing amounts, yet as time progresses it seems to be quickly diminishing. No matter who you are, or what you do, you need creativity. Many people, such as bloggers and artists, rely on creativity every day. However, few people know how to really channel creativity. In this article I’m going to show you how to be creative whenever you want.
1. Creativity is a state of mind
Creativity isn’t some mysterious phenomenon that only happens every once in awhile. It’s a state of mind. Many people report that their creativity comes and goes, sometimes leaving for months at a time. This is because they only reach the state of mind responsible for creativity once every couple of months.
Rather than relying on luck, why not take conscious control of this process? It’s possible to train yourself to achieve that state whenever you’d like.
2. Consciously manifest the creative state
I’ve found that my ability to be creative is directly correlated to the peace of mind and focus that I have in any given situation. Removing stress and distraction is key to channeling the creative state. Here are some of the things you should do when you really want to be creative:
  • Clear your mind and focus on what you want to create.
  • Eliminate as many distractions as possible
  • Create an atmosphere conducive to creativity
  • Feed yourself positive thoughts about what you are doing
  • Imagine the end result and let your subconscious do the real work
For example, I wanted this article to deliver a lot of value so I knew I had to be creative in how I went about writing it. Before starting, I closed my door and lit a candle. I then did a little meditation and relaxation. I visualized this article as being worthy of being read by many different people.
When I finally sat down at my computer, I felt a lot of positive energy surrounding what I was about to do. It was as if the words and sentences created themselves. I had channeled the creative state. This makes any creative endeavor you work on a breeze.
3. Love what you’re doing
If you find that you can’t be creative with what you’re doing, look at your thoughts and emotions. Are you feeling resentment or negativity? Do you have an attitude of “just getting it done?” Does it seem like it takes tremendous amounts of thought to create anything at all?
If any of these are true for you, there’s a good chance you aren’t enjoying what you’re doing. When I’m really into my activity, everything will be fun and flowing. It may be that you’re just over thinking what you’re doing or being a perfectionist. If that’s true, then go to #2 and clear your mind and really get into things.
On the other hand, you may already know that your heart just isn’t in it. Maybe you’re doing it for the money, or because your boss told you to. If that’s the case, you have to decide if inner inauthenticity and stress is worth whatever benefit you’ll eventually be given. More often than not, the best thing to do is to find something else you really love and work on that.
I hope this article helps you. After realizing creativity is merely a state of mind, you can learn to channel it. And of course the most important rule is, love what you do! Now go create! :)

" Mystical Koi " by C. Wright 2-13-11

Apart from the fact that they beautify the house, a lot of people believe in the Koi's mystical abilities to ward off bad omen and attract wealth and happiness. Therefore for most people who can afford it and believe strongly in the power of Koi fish, having a pond with the best fish possible is an absolute must. The Japanese and the Chinese strongly believe that a Koi fish pond at home can bring good fortune and good health to the owner. Today, many people across the world wish to possess Koi ponds because some believe in the Koi as being a good omen while others just want their homes to look beautiful.

Just finished this  !! paint still wet when I took the pics !

18x24 inch acrylic painting on stretched canvas .
 *****************
I was thinking about how I enjoyed painting the Koi in my
 last  painting and thought I would do another -- 
such fun !!
If you know anything about Koi fish -- you know a lot of
 cultures, especially Japanese , really believe strongly in 
the power of these fish . It is easy to see why  -- 
these fish are so beautiful and all a little different 
than the next.
Wouldn't it be lovely to be able to sit and watch these fish 
all day ? 
You can, by purchasing this painting !!
It will make a lovely addition to anyone's decor --
 japanese , oriental , fish , pond or any decor you want
 to add a little serenity to.
