AWAKENING CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION
Awakening creativity and innovation is the conscious alignment with your spiritual nature
that connects you with your;
God given talents, gifts, and inspirations!
Awakening Creativity and Innovation is a by-product of removing the blocks that in the way of true inspiration. Inspiration is derived from our connection with divinity or our spiritual nature. These gifts manifest through us when we are not so bogged down by the toxic, untrue and unhealthy thoughts the mind and ego create. Originality is created when your mind is clear so that true inspiration can emerge.
Byron Katie is a leading authority on teaching us how to question the untrue or stressful thoughts that tend to dominate and clog up our spiritual filter thereby blocking our ability for awakening creativity and innovation within us.
We highly recommend all of the work by Byron Katie, especially her book that introduces you to what she calls "The Work" titled "Loving What Is".

Another author we highly recommend that helps you live in the present moment with a clear mind that is fully aware is Eckhart Tolle. His book titled "The Power of Now" is fundamental in understanding how the ego distracts of from reality by filling our minds and our lives with distraction by thinking incessantly about the past and future, which don't ultimately exist.
Eckhart Tolle defines awareness as; "consciousness without thought".
The source for awakening creativity and innovation comes from the spiritual domain that is beyond or without thought, then we use our minds to refine the inspiration after it emerges. The movie Finding Forrester is a story about a famous author played by Sean Connery, who tells his young protégé that the first draft of your book should come from your Heart, then you rewrite it with your Head. This portrays the concept that the mind cannot create something truly original or innovative. The mind can only refine it after it has emerged from the spirit or "Universal Melting Pot" originating from the "Source" or the "One".
This was true for me when I wrote
Our Book, "Manifesting Consciousness".
Until I was clear, present, and aware, the material simply wouldn't emerge. After several years of attempting to write with no success, I finally cleared my mind, let go of the need to write at all, and the material came flooding through me. In addition to a clear mind, the "Universal Timing" had to be right. After the initial inspired words emerged, my wife and I used our heads to refine and rewrite the material.
After having some resolution with my prior unconscious life, new Creativity and Innovation began to emerge as consciousness flooded my awareness. What manifested, guided my life in an entirely new direction that my mind couldn't make logical sense of. But as time passed, the purpose of that new direction revealed itself.
When these inspirations and ideas manifest, you begin to realize that you cant take credit for them because you see that they didn't come from you. However, having the courage to follow the inspiration is another story, especially when it seems to defy all logic. After following inspiration without logic, I have discovered that the emerging information is always clearer and more accurate.
Ultimately, it is always easier to follow your inspired path no matter how hard it may appear. It is also the way for awakening creativity and innovation to enter your life.
"One does not become a success by envying and vilifying success, but by imitating it. Thus, the angry person has to go back and make up for what was missing in his or her own education and development."
David R Hawkins
"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely, or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature."
"There is no art without love. Art is always the making of the soul, the craft of man's touch, whether that touch is corporeal or the touch of the mind and spirit-so it has been since Neanderthal times, and so it will always be."
David R Hawkins
