Episode 242: Conduit of Creativity – Coffee Break

Conduit of Creativity

We are all conduits of creativity. We pluck ideas from the ethers, or the ideas float by like invisible clouds. Through effort, crafting, and refinement we usher the idea into the world.

In this Coffee Break, we talk about the process of bringing ideas to life and cultivating our own flow state.  The more we are willing to show up for our work, hobby or business, then the more we are open to “The Flow” of ideas.

Rituals and Symbols

Having a ritual and/or symbols to evoke your creativity and muse can be helpful.

LeAura has a rock with the word “Create” etched into it that often sits on or by her laptop.  It serves as both a reminder of what she loves doing and an affirmation.

 

I (Devani) use my Laptop screen saver space to keep a quote or vision board style image to invoke a goal I’m working towards, or some personal/professional growth I’m seeking. While that image changes every several months depending on what I’m working on, the current image is this Venn Diagram:

We hope you enjoy this Coffee Break and share your tools, symbols, and rituals that keep you on track! You can always email us: Creators@iCreateDaily.com. We’d love to hear from you.  🙂

“Ideas are like sparks on the wind. Elusive and ephemeral. Recording them is the first step toward manifesting them.”

About the author, Devani

Hey! I’m Devani, a multi-passionate creator who enjoys honing the craft of writing (mostly;)), photography, cooking, podcasting, learning about business, and growing brands. I co-host the iCreateDaily Podcast with LeAura Alderson (my mom), and co-own the iCreateDaily brand. I hope through the content and products we produce, you will be inspired to start, sustain, and succeed in your goals.

My non-business and artistic hobbies include: enjoying a good movie, discovering obscure but epic music, obsessing over The Beatles, and developing fictional stories in my head. My Maltese dog, Caspian, provides an insane amount of creative inspiration by just being his adorable self. #HeWokeUpLikeThat. 😉
