There are a variety of ways to
approach any creative endeavor and a variety of issues and problems
you may face. The following Fifteen Creative Steps/Guidelines have
been developed to compile the actions found to be most useful and
necessary in any creative endeavor. They provide a way to make any
creative process you undertake relatively faster, easier and
gentler. They can lay the foundation for accessing and releasing a
sufficient amount of your unlimited creativity for any creative
endeavor. They can assist you in unfolding the dream within your
heart and/or access and release the depth and breadth of your
creativity. They are listed here in a consolidated format for your
reference and can be used with the individuals of your choice.
Each of the Fifteen Creative Steps/Guidelines is based on several
realizations about the creative process and the action that
individuals needed to take on that realization. Some actions you can
consider taking to implement the Fifteen Creative Steps/Guidelines
are provided under a separate hyperlink.
The key to your creative endeavors is to have a desire and
corresponding sufficient passion hold a single point focus on a
clear intention. Then use your internal compass and intuitive
guidance to guide you to align with the flow of energy generated by
that single point focus and to act on the intuitive guidance you
get. Each thought creates a flow fo energy. and you can follow that
flow of energy with a single point focus on the feel of the flow of
energy to manifest that thought along the path of least resistance.
That what clear intention and conscious creation and meditation is
all about is all about. The Fifteen Creative Steps/Guidelines help
you to do this without years of effort and practice. How successful
you are with these steps is dependent entirely on what you choose to
create with your life and how diligently you apply each step.
The easiest way to get started is to simply start a creative effort
by setting an intention to create something and work though what
arises as it surfaces. In any situation, the most energetic issue
arises to be addressed. One can use this fact if they are willing to
follow the creative process and allow the flow of energy that will
give rise to what one desires to experience to lead one’s life. To
do this one needs to follow their intuitive guidance which arises
from the flow of energy. So it is simply a matter of choosing a
creative target and stepping toward that objective working to
address whatever surfaces.
As it arises, rather than trying to address all one would need to
know about the issues and problems of a creative endeavor directly,
fifteen creative steps or guidelines are provided that can be used
to simplify your efforts to create the space within your being to
give you the energy, power and ability to manifest your creation.
These creative steps/guidelines will help address many of the issues
and problems that arise in any creative endeavor and will, in many
ways, simplify the work you need to do. Although your journey may
still be difficult and challenging, you will not have to deal
directly with learning all you need to know about creativity. You
will not become overwhelmed by the issues you will face. You will
only have to deal with those that actually arise relative to your
creative efforts as you work through the steps/guidelines.
Creation is ultimately making a thought manifested in the physical
world either by creating an object or an experience. To create
anything, one must act to manifest what they desire. These
guidelines have been found to be a very successful way of acting to
create what one desires by those who have used them. They will be
applicable to your creative effort and you will need to decide what
must be done for each.
In any creative endeavor, much of one’s inner creative work is done
with and through our mind because mind is what determines where we
place our focus and how strong to hold that focus. Since the focus
of your efforts is on creativity and creating, it is suggested that
in working through these steps/guidelines you create some type of
playful symbolic action to accompany your efforts for each step to
(1) demonstrate your commitment to the step, (2) catalyze your
creative endeavor and (3) honor the creative process itself where a
thought is made manifest in a physical experience. For each step a
type of suggested action is provided under a separate document to
help you get started. However, it needs to be emphasized, whatever
is provided is only a suggestion. Use your creativity and
imagination to create the appropriate action to accompany each step.
These creative steps/guidelines can be divided into three sections.
The first section contain Steps/Guidelines 1 and 2 are what you
should do to create the best conditions to manifest what you desire.
They should be done first and in sequence. All others can be done in
almost any order and/or simultaneously working on more than one.
Unless you have deep passion to create such that you are a light
unto yourself, you may wish to implement Step/Guideline 12 after
completing Steps/Guidelines 1 and 2. Here again, some type of
ritual, ceremony, specially created prayer is recommended to be used
to address your needs as appropriate.
The second section deals with the addictive thinking patterns of the
mind that are preventing you form accessing the depth and breadth of
your creative power and ability. The addictive thinking patterns of
the mind can be as powerful and as destructive as any physical
addiction. As such, Steps 3 through 13 are similar in approach to
the Twelve Step program used for many physical addictions
The last Step/Guidelines 14 and 15 are necessary if you wish to move
beyond your addictive thinking patterns and/or to explore the true
depth and breadth of your inherent creative ability. Alternatively
said, that is, if you wish to become a conscious creator and “cure”
yourself of the addictive mind that gives rise to inner and outer
addictive patterns in life.
In using these Fifteen Creative Steps/Guidelines, it is important to
note that you will not free yourself from pain. You will have to
face the pain of creation and giving birth to the life you are
consciously choosing to create. How much pain you experience will
depend on how strongly you hold to the past and/or object to what
enters your life. You may want to look at the discussion on pain.
For each step a type of suggested action is provided thought this
site to help you get started. However, it needs to be emphasized,
what is provided is only a suggestion. Use your creativity and
imagination to create the appropriate action to accompany each step.
In using these Fifteen Creative Steps/Guidelines, it needs to be
remembered, these are steps in the sense that the easiest way to
address them is to do them in sequence. They are guidelines in the
sense that you cannot necessarily expect to fully embrace all of
them to the maximum extent possible. As guidelines they are
something to strive to achieve not necessarily attain and can be
done in any order you choose. Additionally, as guidelines, you will
often find yourself working more than one and/or cycling around them
to revisit items previously addressed at a deeper level. As such,
you should not judge yourself negatively if you cannot fully
accomplish the steps based on your own or someone else’s expectation
and/or opinion. All you can do is make the best effort you can on
each and that is all that is required. What you will find is that
whatever you do with these Fifteen Creative Steps/Guidelines, you
will increase your awareness about the you creativity. In doing so,
you will increase your creative ability to create what you desire.
How long it will take, here again, depends on what you desire to
create and your starting point.
