Meditating for Creativity

So much of our ability to create something helpful, beautiful or useful depends on our ability to listen well.

As someone who has been a writer and meditator for many years, I can attest to the power of learning to focus on your breath, and clearing your mind so that you can be more creative and effective in your daily living.

One of the best ways to develop our capacity to listen is to have a consistent daily meditation practice, but sometimes we need to know our reason for meditating.

Getting Started

As you consider your creative goals, and how meditation might support those goals, ask yourself these types of  questions:

  1. What messages am I hearing that need to be included in my writing?
  2. What am I refusing to hear?
  3. What should I stop listening to?

Each of us is unique because of what we hear, and what attracts our attention. Each of us is selective in what hear.

If you want to define your authentic voice, or develop your signature artistic or innovative style, notice what you hear.

Listen to your own voice speaking, and ask yourself what you stand for, when you are most true to your point of view.

If you’re looking for a meditation practice that supports your authentic expression and true nature, I offer a daily pause, Monday through Friday at noon CST.

I am certified meditation instructor from the Open Heart Project.  If you would like to learn more, check out my Daily Pause program.
