How do you get your creative juices flowing?
I am picturing a giant juicer with thoughts and ideas piled high inside. There is a dial on the base of the juicer with settings labeled "ultra quiet low-speed" for dreamtime and "turbo-speed" for heavy-duty challenges. While there might come a day when someone actually sells a product like this, we already have it inside our bodies. It is easily and effectively employed once we learn to recognize what triggers "the juice".
Our internal machine is called a "muser" and it begins to function when our many senses come together to create. Whether our creation is finding a solution, writing a song, developing a business plan or beginning a painting ... our muse is most practical since it stimulates the original power tool - INSPIRATION!
Some of my muses are: Driving, Anthropologie stores, music, nature, fabric & yarn, box of crayons, paper napkins, children, lipstick. Make a list of yours. I bet you'll feel creative urges just making the list!
