CREATIVE PRINCIPLES

CREATIVE PRINCIPLES

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Creative principles ...
Adapt and apply them.
Creativity is spurred and encouraged when we appoint and assign ourselves specific creative measures for growth.
Here are three concrete criticals for employing creativity.
-----
1) Creative Space
Immerse yourself in spaces and places that breed creativity in you.
Find your "Arc of Dreams" and plant yourself there continually.
The more time you subject yourself to spaces and places that breed creativity, the more likely you are to advance in a unique and creative arena.
If you're a scientist, maybe you find State parks appealing.
If you're a baker, maybe you find the kitchen gratifying.
If you're a writer, maybe you find nature energizing.
If you're a painter, maybe you find Galleries inviting.
If you're a hiker, maybe you find mountains exhilarating.
Creative juices flow in creative spaces.
Where's your "Arc of Dreams?"

2) Solitude
Confidence grows when we dare to be alone and dare to think our own thoughts.
Until we get comfortable being by ourselves and utilizing solitude for our personal betterment, we are not likely to experience creative growth.
Find your place of silence and encourage solitude.
Listen to your own breathing and your own voice.
Listen to the whisper of the Spirit and the communion of your own thoughts.
The most creative and intelligent individuals welcome and insist on periods of solitude.
Technology is a poor substitute for creativity.
Shut it off and shut the world out.
Invest in solitude.

3) Write
Writing is a declarative and concrete act which yields constructive creativity.
 When we write, even if we find writing a tedious chore, we find ourselves beginning to employ new ideas, chart new concepts, and consider new avenues and courses.
Activating imagination and creativity begins with a single sheet of paper.
Take advantage of simplicity and explore unlimited options via pad of paper
Sky's the limit and mum's the word ... get it in writing.
Creative juices flow when we begin to concretely identify words and thoughts with our desires and allow ourselves the experience of feeling them.

Find your "Arc of Dreams" and begin to create.
