14 Surefire Methods to Tap Into Your Creative Flow Everyday


 2002
Julie Jordan Scott


1. Collage: cut out images from magazines. Glue 
them to a poster board without any intellectualizing 
and see what your subconscious mind has created for 
you as your own personalized "image muse".

2. Listen to music, many different varieties. If 
you have cable radio, this is a great way to have a 
commercial free extended play of virtually any 
classification of music available. Try something 
you are not as familiar with: world music, gospel, 
Celtic, baroque...stretch your appreciation, awaken
your spark.

3. Set a timer for 15 minutes and free write. 
Without editorializing or judging your thoughts, 
just let your pencil go back and forth across 
the page. Let your mind and words dance and 
swim anywhere and everywhere. 

4. Get up and get into physical motion. A walk,
a dance, a jog, a stretch, a hop. Does not matter
what the movement is, simply do it. In conjunction 
with listening to music, your creativity will be 
compelled to be burst forth

5. Explore the many facets of intimacy. From 
the face to face, heart to heart tenderness of physical
closeness to the multisensory experience of connecting
with another soul, intimacy may evoke one of the 
most intense streams of creative flow.

6. Read quotes and classic literature. Learning
from the genius of creative thinkers of the past 
will illuminate your creative genius of today.

7. Develop relationships that encourage 
intentionally satisfying, in depth discussion. 
From the meandering, awakening talks that are 
produced, results will be spontaneous and abundant.

8. Write haiku, a simple form of poetry you 
probably learned about in school. A three lined 
poem comprised of an opening line of 5 syllables,
a closing line of 5 syllables and a middle line 
of 7 syllables, see what you can powerfully 
craft in the fewest words.

9. Take ample time in quiet through meditation,
prayer and spiritual study. Peace, contentment,
satisfaction and creativity will follow.

10. Spend time both participating with and 
observing the nature which surrounds you. Caring 
for your environment, being a steward of plant
life joins the human creative spirit with 
the Earth.

11. Paint: using any favorite medium be it
finger paints or acrylics with sponges or watercolors,
simply set aside some time to splash some paint
around. See what comes forth.

12. Take time to experience visual art. Invest
the time necessary to interact with those pieces
which call to you.

13. Attend theatrical events and concerts. Support
the performing arts and see what they teach your
creative being.

14. Find a new recipe and try it out. The more variety
you partner with in your kitchen, the more you will
partner simply and effortlessly with you creative flow.
