Creativity and Inspiration
Creativity for the mystic has special meaning. In the
world of the mystic all is one. This means that there's only one Creator. Your
job as an artist, painter or writer is simply to attune with this One source of
all creation, listen and report on what you're told. This is the essence of
divine inspiration. It's similar to the advice I was given as a young
businessman when my boss and I were on our way to an important meeting. He
turned to me and said, "Keep your mouth shut and listen good."
As the author of Mystic Warrior, I am most familiar with the art of writing.
Many people are fearful that they don't know how to write or that they're not
qualified. Since everyone is tapping into the same source, it doesn't matter.
All you have to do is, "Keep your mouth shut and listen good." Everyone is
qualified, because, as it turns out, God is an excellent writer.
Anyone can write. The secret is simply, how do you attune with this One source
of creation? Writers attempt to do this by following certain routines or
rituals. Rituals are simply a series of acts that are meant to impress upon the
conscious mind, what is being transmitted on a higher plane. Holy Communion,
blessing of the food, blowing a ram's horn are all examples of rituals. They are
meant to put you in the proper state of mind so your attunement follows.
In the world of the writer, the rituals may involve writing at a certain time of
day, with a favorite typewriter or at a certain desk. Smart writers try to
recreate the same feelings they experienced when they were successful in pouring
out material. A mystic takes this one step further and you can do this too.
Mystics create a personal sanctum that facilitates attunement with the one
Creator. Now you can create one on the physical plane - a favorite recliner or
special room for meditation or spiritual studies - but the more important one is
on a higher plane. This is where you will go to receive inspiration.
The technique is simple. Visualize your sanctum using the techniques I described
in 3 Steps to Manifesting Your Ideal Life. But before you do, you should decide
what purpose you'd like to achieve. If you're just starting out, then your
purpose may very well be "what should I write about? What message does the one
Creator want me to bring through and share with the world?"
Understand, that when you return to the physical world, you may have to do some
research. In fact that's one of the key reasons people suffer from writer's
block - they run out of material or don't have the knowledge to describe the
information that's been given to them in their personal sanctum.
It's a good idea to visit your personal sanctum on a daily basis. There are
additional benefits to this such as increased vitality, increased ability to
concentrate, control of emotions, enhanced intuition, the removal of fear and
But the prime benefit of ascending to your own personal sanctum is to receive
inspiration by direct attunement with God, the font of all creativity.
