As an artist, creativity is your primary tool. It is wonderful when it is in place and functioning. But sometimes it is hard to find the inspiration and the creativity. It may be due to many different things, but sometimes it is lost because you have too much else around you to be able to concentrate. That may suppress the creative flow.
Meditation can be a remedy to help relax your mind. Here is a meditation I have learned from Yoga Today. I have partially modified it to enhance creativity boost.
1. Sit comfortably, preferably cross-legged if it suits you. Breathe slowly in and out through your nose while you concentrate on how nice it is to be able to breath.
2. Close your eyes. Breathe for about 1 minute in through your mouth and out through your nose while you focus on clarity. Imagine a glass of water that has been outraged but slowly calms and becomes even more clear and transparent for every second.
3. During the next minute, you will get rid of all the worries and all obstacles by breathing in and out through your nose, as calmly as before. When you breathe in you think of an obstacle or concern. When you breathe out, let the obstacle or concern follow your breath out and see how it disappears. If you should get out of obstacles , you can make up some more to get rid of.
4. During the third and last minute continue to breathe in and out through the nose. Now let your focus entirely be on the feeling of creativity, how wonderful it is to be in the creative flow.
