Creative Living: Be More Creative

Your Monday Motivator: Kicking Off A Creative Intention Series

So, we’re more than halfway through January. How are those new year resolutions coming along? If you’ve been around here for a while, you know I’m not a big fan of relying on will-based discipline to creating what you want to create in your life. It doesn’t work too well for most of us, especially creative types. According to market researchers Opinion Research Corp., 92% of us go about our daily lives failing to create what we most want. Whether our desire is physical (as, in their study, 38% of the desires); emotional (31%), financial (34%) or, interestingly the biggest…

Creativist Me, Creativist World. This Week: What We Leave Behind

I’m going to die! No, I’m not being dramatic and no, there’s nothing wrong with me beyond the fact that life is, as a Polish film once said, a fatal, sexually-transmitted condition. They actually said sexually-transmitted disease and I have to say, I think that’s going a bit far. But I take the point. We’re all going to die. And we all spend a lot of energy avoiding or resisting that. Remembrance of Things Past I recently found myself at two memorials. The first was a sunny autumn morning in which our family planted a tree in our local park for Anne, my dear…

Setting Good Intentions: Creative Listing

Creative listing is a core creative exercise which supports your creative intention. Use it whenever you set a new intention, to help establish and map its parameters and what you need to fulfill it. Here’s how: 1. Frame your intention I am going to create _________  by _________, the first blank being your significant something, the second the date by which you will create it. If your intention is a life-change — to become an actor, to leave your partner — set down the first step in the process, as you see it. The date is important, put a date-stamp on it. 2. Visualize and…

Like to Review My Compendium For Creativists?

Chapters include: What Is A Conscious Creation? The Seven Stages of The Creative Process How To Create Anything Where The Law of Attraction Goes Wrong and many more.

What Is Creativism?

Creativism is the adoption of creative principles and practices as a way of life. Creativists say: “I’m in charge, I am responsible for what unfolds in my life.” Creativists also say: “There is a creative flow unfolding in the world. I am part of that. The best way to live is to do what I can to align with that flow, that unfolding.” Creativists consciously align their thoughts, words and actions with creative flow — and having done so, they let go. They spend much time cultivating an internal open empty space, so that their truest needs can emerge and be…

Keep it Secret to Keep it Sacred

Sharing your creative dream too early is a mistake. Later on, when it’s well established in you, telling others can help keep you on track. But in the early days, hug it to yourself. Be like actor, Jeff Goldblum*, when he was a teenager: “I would take a shower,” he says, “and it had a door, not a curtain, a door, a glass door, which would   Read More
