It All Begins Here...

"The only thing that will grow is the thing we give energy to."

Emerson

 

Everything that ever was or ever will be began in somebody's mind, in their imagination! When we were created, we were given creative abilities. We are co-creaters. We have the ability to bring into reality whatever we choose. You must have faith and believe that it can be done, whatever IT is!

When a thought comes into your mind it can develop into an idea. You can accept this idea and run with it or you can reject it. That is your choice. If you decide to embrace an idea and put forth the energy necessary, it can become a physical reality!

Sometimes doubt and fear will enter into your mind. These are powerful adversaries that you must overcome when they appear or you will never reach what you intend to accomplish. 

When this happens we tend to focus on what we don't want instead of what we do want. Our energy begins to work against us. We need to dispell these thoughts and re-focus our energy.

The imagination plays a large part in our ability to learn and create. As a young child your imagination was in overdrive. Your perspective towards life was completely different than it is now as an adult. 

What happend?

We eventually took on the thoughts and ideas of others. Their beliefs! We began to accept what others wanted for us. Our parents and other family members, our teachers, coaches, and so on. Of course there was no ill will being displayed here, it was merely what they perceived to be true and best for us.

Some of these beliefs are passed on through generations. Writing this reminds me of a story of a young girl preparing Christmas dinner with her mother. 

In this story, as dinner was being prepared, the mother cut the ends off of the ham as she had always done and put it into the pot. The daughter asked her mother why she did this. The mother replied that it was the way it was always done in her family as she was growing up. 

Again, the daughter wanted to know why. The mother told her to ask her grandmother. So the young girl went to her grandmother and asked her the secret behind cutting the ends off of the Christmas ham. 

The grandmother replied that there was no secret behind it, it was just that the pot that they had back then was just not big enough to put the whole ham into. 

I guess the point is that things aren't always what they appear to be!

I am getting off the subject a little bit. 

Back to the imagination...

There are many ways to increase you creative abilities. I have listed a few of them below:

  • Try to do nothing. Finding your imagination involves shutting out external stimulation and impulses. Tonight, turn off music and television and sit for a while. See what comes to your mind, and come up with alternative ways to spend your time. If you find this difficult, try yoga or meditation to help you learn to turn off the world.
  • Read creative literature. It is important to get out of your comfort zone for the forms of art you interact with. If you normally read detective thrillers, try reading a fantasy novel – and vice versa. Try to branch out not only in the content you interact with, but the way the content is presented.
  • Listen to music without lyrics. Listening to music has been shown to increase productivity while you are working. However, listening to lyrics makes you focus, if only subconsciously, on their ideas. Let music without lyrics arouse your creativity, and use it as a blank slate for your imagination to write on.
  • Don’t be afraid to try something new...Be curious. Learning new things sparks creativity and increases imagination. A part of learning new things is being curious. Children tend to be more imaginative because of their curious nature. Our inherent nature to seek answers or to learn new things does not disappear over age. Feed curiosity by learning and experiencing new things and notice how your imagination improves.
