Connect To Your Creative Spirit Through Music, Visualization and Meditation
By Paul Hoffman of Success Songs
The world is but a canvas to the imagination. — Henry David Thoreau
The great OM of life, that natural willingness for you to open your soul to what is seeking to be expressed comes from a committed consciousness that is developed by learning how to master your mind. It is in those moments of curious inflection that the call of your soul speaks loudest so that you hear the calling of your heart.
Each day you are on an adventure. The discoverer in you is seeking to cross the bridges of possibility so that the opportunity to live life from your higher purpose ignites a passion in you to step out of the shadows of uncertainty and into the light of flowness. Your Creative Flow!!!
So What Is Creativity?
Creativity is the messenger of imagination, the kindred spirit of inspiration, the guiding light of unlimited ideas and the energetic vibration that encourages you to flow and go.
There is an inherent presence in you, a dynamic uniqueness that is guided by an individuality that is awakened when you awaken to your Creative Spirit. Being in the flow of your creativity heightens your awareness so that Your Voice Of Action™ communicates in a way so you know all things are possible and you welcome the sense of surprise into your life.
The Power Of Autosuggestion
Your mind works in the ways you tell it to. You create your reality. The food of genius you put into it will harvest according to the mindset you operate from. When you are a witness to your inner dialogue you harness the power of your creative spirit. Therefore, it is important that you cultivate a process so you can listen to what you say to yourself.
Freeing himself of a drug and alcohol addiction, Paul Hoffman turned his life around because of his commitment to bringing himself back to the core of his being.
With the discovery of meditation, he was reconnected to the real source of his inspiration, which was his heart. He had rediscovered himself and re-ignited his passion for music.
He is now dedicated to helping others through meditation and music and works to shift people at a subconscious level, empowering and motivating the listener to wake-up to who they really are. He is also the co-author of the widely acclaimed Sonic Access Meditation program with Paul Scheele.
Napoleon Hill said: ”Your ability to use the principle of autosuggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession.”
So when you align your inner mind with the magic of your soul and the calling of your heart your outer desires will be created from the realm of your greatness!
7 Steps To Create Harmony With Your Creative Spirit
I recommend creating a daily ritual to help guide you through the constant egoic chatter of the day so that what you create comes from your Action Voice.™ This is a process I do each day and always before I am ready to make a strategic decision so I am in harmony with my creative spirit.
1.Quiet The Mind
2.Connect To Your Heart
3.Listen To Your Intuition
4.Free Your Imagination
5.Visualize Your Outcomes
6.Capture Your Inspirations
7.Communicate In Your Action Voice™
You see the way you communicate to yourself will create the energy that you act from. Living in your genius is a practice that is accompanied by a focused discipline to connect to your higher purpose. You must be available to your inner core of brilliance in order to cultivate that practice.
Your Heart’s Invitation To You
There is a transparency in you that invites you to fulfill the calling of your heart. It is present in every moment of your day as a timeless extension of your beingness always looking for ways to seek out and to express the picture of your soul.
As Michelangelo said “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” That is the same as giving yourself permission to live unencumbered by any thoughts of lack and limitation and to step into the true power that resides within you so you create magic in every moment.
Just remember all great ideas came from a thought that someone thought up. And not everyone thought some of those ideas were worth anything but as Albert Camus said: “All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning.” Courage is infectious and creativity is contagious.
Connect To Your Creative Spirit Through Music, Meditation, & Visualization
There are many ways to connect to your Creative Spirit. Some of us experience the awakening of the Creative Spirit through intuitive journeys while others connect to it through the use of other creative pathways such as Music, Meditation and Visualization.
Music stirs the soul. Meditation quiets the mind freeing the heart to seek and express the passion within and Visualization allows you to see the end in mind so that you can create a plan to manifest your desires.
Music, Meditation and Visualization will open your success chakras, connect you to your passion, awaken your sense of purpose, strengthen your mind and offer you a pristine view of your soul. The greatest minds in the world used these disciplines to enhance their creativity.
One of the pre-requisites to tapping into your creativity is to have a practice of focused intention. Mark Twain said “You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” Being certain of mind creates clarity and releases any barriers to your success.
Music frees the mind. How many times have you been stuck in a particular place in your thinking and when you put on a piece of music you all of a sudden seemed to think in ways that resulted in a renewed sense of enthusiasm. You begin to look for new ways to solve challenges.
Listening to a piece of music that stirs the imagination evokes an emotion of expansiveness, encourages the taking of positive actions and ignites feelings of joy. It will ready you for the most complex tasks you may have thought were impossible, creating a direct path to unleashing your creativity.
Music also evokes positive feelings in an instant giving you an emotional shift in consciousness. It is almost as if an internal switch is flipped and you all of a sudden feel a heightened sense of awareness for what you are doing.
As Plato said “Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.” Music opens the door to an infinite view of creativity that speaks passionately to the calling of your heart.
Meditation produces a state of calm that will ready you for a renewed sense of inspiration. Meditation invites your imagination to open your mind in ways that produce insights of opportunities and beliefs of possibility. Many great thinkers used meditation to produce extraordinary results.
Having a daily meditation practice readies you for your day. Knowing that the mind processes so much information having a practice to filter out the bits that distract you will keep you focused. When you master your mind you create a flow of thought that will be in alignment with your vision in the moment. Meditation helps you do that.
As John Maynard Keynes said: “The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.” Meditation releases any difficulty of thought and ushers in a landscape of what is truly possible for you to create.
And finally learn to Visualize your outcomes. How you view your day, what mental picture you hold for it determines the outcomes you will create. The greatest inventions and discoveries were made by those who had a mental picture of what they wanted to do and then thought big and bold and took action. They welcomed being surprised.
Your mind is alive and always in search of the ideas that will bring into reality the results you are seeking. As you look out over the landscape of your day you begin to see an oasis of opportunity. The more vivid the picture, the more powerful the urge to make it your reality and the more you will listen to the rhythm of your soul.
Holding a clear vision brings into focus the seeds of creativity that are in the garden of your mind. You then begin to operate from a big thinking mentality and an abundant point of view. You see the unseen!
Einstein said: The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”
However your creativity shows up, know that you have the power to step into the magic of your life by bridging the awesomeness of your essence with the spirit of your authenticity.
You Are Already Being Guided To Fulfillment
All around you an energetic vibration of prosperity guides you towards the fulfillment of your dreams. Savor the abundance of your imagination and the unlimited creative spirit within you. One of my mantras is: “If what you dream wasn’t already inside of you how could you even dream it.” Think about that. You have it all right where you are. Right NOW!
Some of you may ask, am I creative? Some of you even proclaim to yourself that you are not creative. You may even fear the creativity in you. Your creativity is always present and always available to you. Remember everything you do is based on a creative expression that you think up. It is an idea in your mind, a blossoming of your spirit.
The creative spirit within you connects you to your greatness and your potential to spread your awesomeness in all you do. Creativity is the fuel that sparks your imagination. It is the wave of discovery that opens you up to stepping into the light of your genius. It is the all-knowing power that sets you apart from mediocrity. It is the calling card of your individuality.
Do not be held back by limiting beliefs. Free your mind so your soul opens up to the magnificence of each moment. Connect to the unlimited power in you to have it all. Einstein said “If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it. “
There is a vast reservoir of creativity within you. Listen to it so that you begin to create your life the way you want it to look like. Your thoughts are dripping with possibility. Follow your glow of brilliance. And begin to see that where you are has always been where you wanted to be.
