creative potentialA lot of the coaching I do with women is all about finding their inner voice, accessing their full creative potential, and shaping their message to express their true purpose in the world.

One of the changes I support them in making is to be able to consciously shift from their limiting, linear mind into their creative, intuitive mind, and then to spend more time there to receive direct inspiration.

How do they do that, you might ask?

There is a creative spirit within all of us. We just need to nurture it. Tapping in to your creative mind involves making a shift from your left brain to your right brain, from your linear mind to your more intuitive mind.

Only by disengaging your thinking mind do you gain full access to your creative mind.

To access your full creative potential, you need to find ways to reduce the turbulence in your mind and the constant stream of never-ending thinking that goes on for most of us most of the time.

jan marie dore business coachI have practiced meditation, journaling and creative silence for many years as a way to access my creative potential and listen to my wise inner voice.

You can try practicing some form of creative silence or meditation. In silence, you receive creative thoughts and ideas.

Inspiration will come to you from an infinite field of creativity that is beyond the inner dialogue of your thinking mind.

Time in nature, or in a beautiful natural setting, can also give you a window through which to access your creative inspiration and imaginative ideas.

Another way to access your creative potential includes practicing non-judgment. When you are judging things, your mind is always evaluating whether something is good or bad, right or wrong. In your unobserved thoughts, you are constantly labeling and classifying things. This constant evaluative process distracts your mind from really connecting in the moment and being present with the people and events in your life.

In A Course in Miracles there is a prayer that says “Today I shall judge nothing that occurs.”  When you still your judgments, you still your mind.

Don Miguel Ruiz in his book “The Four Agreements” says that we create stories with our self-judgments – stories about ourselves that are not true. His first agreement is to “be impeccable with your word”, meaning not to use your words against yourself.

Letting go of resistance, self-judgment or critical self-thoughts will allow your creativity to flourish and give you access to your full creative potential.

I’d love to hear how you access your creative potential. Let me know by commenting below.

To your creative success!

    • Loved this blog. I agree that one has to get past the monkey mind is my greatest challenge. I find every morning I make notes on the day before: Non Judgemental just observing thoughts. It gives me fodder for my comedy and writing but more than that I note all the amazing things that happened. That way there is no way for me to dismiss the amazing pieces of my life even in a difficult day.

      Sorting out creativity and not have it pull me in many directions is my greatest challenge. That’s why I am getting coaching from you Jan.

    • Wonderful process Deborah to reflect back on the previous day. I’m excited about working with you. You are a very talented, inspiring lady!. 🙂

      So true … when things seem muddled, it is so helpful to be still in some way. Journaling can help make sense of running thoughts. Getting outdoors can still the mind and bring out wonderful ideas.

      • I agree Jamie – be still, calm the mind and be in nature – what could be better than that?
