Here is a simple, easy creative process you can practice regularly in whatever time you have available that enables you to tap into your own inherent wisdom and your deepest creative source at will. You can use this process to solve your most pressing problems, to break through whatever is holding you back, to live a more free and passionate life, and to reach the goals you hold most dear. To become your most authentic, awesome self.
CREATE! is just that process. The term “create” is used in its widest sense as this process is designed to allow anyone access to depth creativity anytime anywhere. Drawing on relevant integrated brain wave research, the work is a potent marriage of art and science. CREATE! has been anchored in writing as its most universally accessible vehicle. However movement, music, and visual media are other domains where CREATE! produces consistently positive results. It has proven to be both expansive and practical, in that it has broad application. For example, practitioners have used it to:
• break through blocks to completing a doctoral dissertation
• develop a method for analyzing qualitative data in a research project
• uncover titles for a series of paintings in preparation for an art show
• write novels
• produce paintings and collages
• write poems
• set and reach important personal and professional goals
• start new businesses
• probe issues impacting health and wellbeing
• gain access to individual and collective wisdom
• explore spiritual questions and realms
• integrate the discoveries into living more fully and passionately each day
There is still much to learn about this process and its potential and application are truly limitless. Because of its universality, CREATE! enhances personal evolution and supports wider change. The process works equally well for those who are practicing creatives – artists, writers, composers, dancers, inventors – and for those who think they don’t have a single creative cell in their bodies.
Individuals can benefit from a CREATE! practice in coming to know themselves more deeply and in working through obstacles to their growth and happiness. In the corporate and organizational arenas, teams can use it to enhance creativity and innovation and as a way to bond as a group. Regular practice groups convened among friends, colleagues, families and spiritual communities will enable individuals to maintain a steady practice while boosting the impact through a shared experience.
The seven-step CREATE! process prepares you for a dive into the great pool where your deepest creative source resides, allows you to make the dive to retrieve its perfect and valuable pearls, and then guides you to resurface to make use of these treasures in your daily life. This book is organized by devoting one chapter to each of the seven steps of the process. Each chapter includes both the “how” of that step, examples to bring it to life and a “practice” for you, the reader, to engage in. The seven steps follow:
