LESSON 1 – Finding Your Imagination…

Sometimes good things can come from doing nothing, from just being still and allowing the mind to wander. From daydreaming… I find, it’s the ideal way to begin any kind of creative journey…

Freeing yourself from the monotony of day-to-day living and letting your imagination take you where it pleases is one of the most effective ways to resolve what you need and desire from life. How is it possible to connect with a true sense of who you are if you don’t take the time to reflect on all aspects of how you are living? How is it possible to create a life you love living in and conjure an ambience that soothes your soul, if you don’t stop to acknowledgement the kinds of experiences and environments that make your heart sing…

In childhood, we all instinctively appreciate the benefits that come when we use our imaginations. By daydreaming, creating our own alternative worlds, we learn about the complexity of relationships and the environment in which we live. It’s how we begin to understand our basic emotions, what makes us happy and sad.

Have you ever observed children when they are building their own private world? Whether it’s a wooden cubby house, or simply a sheet thrown over a chair, their process of creating and inhabiting secret spaces is simple and pure – the name of the game, although they are possibly not conscious of it, is simply to nurture the spirit. How wonderful to possess the inner freedom to create a world that truly reflects the needs of your soul…

Alas, as we grow into adults many of us lose the capacity to dream. Purpose takes over from play. The drive for success takes over from experimentation. But is it ever too late to begin again?

So today, take the time to stop, to daydream – and remember the things that nurutre your spirit. That’s the first step to creative living. Once you create the space in your heart and mind you’ll be amazed at what creative thoughts bound forth…
