#18 in my Tonics for Your Creative Spirit email series: Anodea Judith & Lion Goodman 

 

Hope you’ve been enjoying a fun and creative week.

Here’s another Creativity Quote to keep your creative spirits up and, speaking of spirits – we’re turning to the world of metaphysics with the source of this week’s inspiration.

First up, though, the words of wisdom:

creating on purpose creativity quote

 

This quote is taken from a book about the ultimate creative act; living our whole lives by intention and design.

The book is called Creating On Purpose and it’s written by two luminaries in the spiritual field; Anodea Judith & Lion Goodman – and if you’re interested in metaphysics and the power of invisible energies, I think you’d love it.This quote is taken from a book about the ultimate creative act; living our whole lives by intention and design. The book is called Creating On Purpose and it's written by two luminaries in the spiritual field; Anodea Judith & Lion Goodman - and if you're interested in metaphysics and the power of invisible energies, I think you'd love it. It's a fascinating and practical take on the idea that we shape our own realities. But what makes this book different is how it explores the fine art of manifestation, step-by-logical-step, in line with the 7 main chakras. For example, our initial ideas begin in the invisible realm of inspiration (Chakra 7). They then progress through the processes of vision (Chakra 6), communication (Chakra 5), and cooperation (Chakra 4) until we bring our idea into the material realm of the lower chakras of power, pleasure and matter. It's a compelling strategy for manifesting and makes even the loftiest life dream seem very do-able. But the process works just as well when applied to creative projects on a smaller scale. The book is full of inspiring insights on the creative process (such as the playful gem above) and happily there's an emphasis on how the journey can be one of fulfillment, synergy, altruism and (my favourite) joy. And, as Anodea and Lion put it: "If you bring the joy and enthusiasm of your inner child into your activities, life becomes a playground." Fun, success and fulfillment - not a bad roadmap to follow. (I love this idea. Why do we always assume that creating anything great needs to be hard work...?) But if you still need persuading that 'time off' for play will actually benefit your creativity, just watch any young child - children live to play and are effortlessly creative. Or take a look at how Google fosters a culture of playfulness and fun to spark innovation and ingenuity. So I hope you'll be inspired to build the productive practice of play into your creative schedule. Or at least play with the idea... ;-) Of course, if you're already use this idea to keep your creativity flowing - I'd love to hear your tips. Till next week - have fun at playtime! Danielle PS One of my favourite muse-magnetising playspaces is Pinterest, where I give my imagination free reign to pin how I'd like my life to look. (It may be my design roots but life-designing is my idea of play. Plus, if Anodea and Lion are right, this playtime can actually serve to bring about my Dream Home or Travel Wishes. Even more proof that play is productive!)
