Clothe yourself well – wearing clothes that are a reflection of your energetic, creative, and intellectual point of view is one of the simplest ways to be joyfully self-expressed, and share something of who you are with the world.
Get lots of fresh air – there is more to air than oxygen (and oxygen is great). There is something there that reaches our souls. Who hasn’t gone for long walks and come back with new ideas and perspectives, and untangled some mental knots to boot?
Use what you’ve been given to release more – quite apt as we come out the other side of Thanksgiving (and I’m not even American!). This is another way of saying what you appreciate, appreciates. Maybe you are not quite where you want to be with making your mark in the world. One thing that will definitely take you in the right direction is finding ways to leverage your innate creative talent daily, weekly, and monthly, and even better if you can lift up others while doing so.
Understand the nature of thought – We are always thinking, but our thinking is not us. How to know if we are ‘thinking well’? By how we are feeling. What to do if you’re stuck in a ‘stinky thinking loop’? Put your attention somewhere else. Remember what is really true. Go for a walk (see no. 2 above). Tune into what you are thinking, how you are feeling and how you are posturing your body; do these simultaneously and experience an immediate shift. Cry without story.
Eat for inspiration. Learn what suits you body, mind, and spirit. A simple way to do this is to start keeping a food journal. I’ve kept one as long as I can remember, probably since my teens. It’s become a habit. It’s an energetic principle that whatever is observed is transformed. Or check out the Art of Eating Pretty: for Body, Beauty, and your Bold Art. If you do the exercises there you will not only powerfully and positively impact your creative life, you will become intimately acquainted with the workings of your own body, and better able to intuit its needs.
