The theme of today’s Morning Flow Practice session is “Making Creative Space”.
Join our Facebook group to practice with us. Each Monday through Thursday, first thing in my morning (7.30am London time) I facilitate a morning Creative Flow Practice session in our closed Facebook Group: Go Creative! in Business.
And each Thursday I share one session from the week here on the blog, so you can try the practice and see its power for yourself.
Creative Flow Practice: Live and Replay
The idea is that some of us meet live to practice but you can join in anytime, by clicking into a replay from wherever you are, whenever suits you.
Ideally first thing in your morning too as flow practice has most effect if it’s the first thing you do in your day.
Taking this half-hour or so before the doings of the day get going is very powerful. It heightens our awareness of creative flow and of our own creative power and capacity, right from the start, and has an effect all through the day.
Creative flow is always there for us, though we’re not always there for it. Morning flow practice helps us to bring that awareness into the rest of the day’s creative work and rest and play.
For a creative, rest and play are not breaks from the process. They are the process.
Creative Flow Practice: Inspiration Meditation and F-r-e-e-writing
We do two practices: Inspiration meditation and F-r-e-e-writing, both specifically designed for busy, creative minds. You can find guidelines here that explain the practices here but the instructions during the session are simple and you should be able to follow along without prior guidelines.
Being creative is never about reading or thinking; it’s about feeling and doing. And the only way to learn creative practice of any kind is by doing it.
The benefit of flow practice is cumulative. No one day is ever that significant. What is important is to show up, often. That’s how you prove to yourself that the creative way is important to you.
While I facilitate the space, and we do the same rituals each day to open that space, each person who joins in generates their own unique experience, each time. It’s always the same, it’s never the same.
The practice is exclusively offered to the Go Creative! in Business Facebook Group, where we also set weekly creative intentions on a Monday, and check up what we actually accomplished the following Saturday.
We also support each other in many other ways.
If you’re in our Facebook group, you’ll find past replays in the Units section. If not, you’d be most welcome to join us.
This morning’s creative flow practice was on the theme of:
Flow Practice: Making Creative Space
Creative flow practice is not something we do just for the time we’re sitting on the cushion or filling our f-r-e-e-writing pages. We practice in the morning so we have the skills we need when we meet creative challenges.
The video suggests some ways to allow creative flow practice into your day, including:
- Creative Breath
- Inspiration Meditation
