Envision Your Vision

No wonder creative visualization technique is being prescribed by many personal development coaches: the benefits of clarifying and emotionally experiencing your dreams by virtually reliving them in your mind has been proven to lead to the greater success in the “execution phase”.

I remember how thrilled I was to discover visualization, since daydreaming naturally was (and remains) one of my favorite pastime activities. While lounging by a pool, jogging on a treadmill, or sipping the second Margarita in the local pub, I would ask myself “Where could I be now?”, “What could I be doing?” or “Wouldn’t it be nice , if…?” and drift off envisioning various delicious scenarios. That field of potentiality, mixed with improvised creativity, emotionally charged with excitement, joy and freedom, and sprinkled with goosebumps is oh-so-delicious treat with which I pamper myself daily.

I do believe in the power of visualization, but even if I didn’t, creating the alternative life in my mind (just like playing Sims, if you will), genuinely is a fun activity  Plus it really magnifies  and clarifies, what is it that presently matters to me. I also find it extremely satisfying to listen to people, when they’re tapped into this field of potentiality and possibility, talk about their dreams and goals and ambitions… Trough those sparkling eyes and trembling voice I feel the closest connection and purest affection to others.

Dreamily,

Diving into the Creative Vortex (AKA good-kind-of-madness)

How does inspiration feel like? What happens when we create?

“When an actor is on the stage improvising and creating on spot, his aura lights up in a bright electric blue color,” – my theater teacher told me once. Though I don’t see auras (just yet.. heh),  that image got deeply  ingrained in my mind.

Whilst in the creative Vortex people do seem to be aligned to something that is way Greater (if not with the Life itself). The sparkling energy, the brain buzz and the sharp focus that the creative process evokes is one of the most sublime ways to treat ourselves.

For me this “Pupatopia” project serves as a delicious niche to create. I revel in the joy of manifesting an idea into a physical reality, of capturing the moments and editing the pictures, of tuning into the stream of consciousness, then polishing the writing and sending it out to the World.

How do you access the field of potentiality? Do you write? Draw? Sing?  Dance? Color-code the closet? Decorate the cupcakes?  Whatever it is — let’s dive into this good-kind-of-madness.

Madly,

Pupa
