Episode #8 – How to Come Up with Ideas

To be creative IS to be productive and producing your creative work. But the first step, before the producing and creating can happen, is opening up to the inspiration and the muse.

In this solo episode, I discuss how to turn off your inner critic and dive deep into connecting with your inspiration and muses in order to come up with your next idea.

There are those people who have a plethora of ideas, they know exactly which idea they are going to explore and create, and they do it without any hesitation or doubt.

Then, there are the rest of us.

In this week’s episode, I discuss the beginning stages of the creative process which is actually coming up with an idea to create and bring into the world.

Some of us know what we want to create but need to narrow those ideas down. Some of us need to go deep and reconnect with our creative selves to find that inspiration and come up with ideas.

In this solo episode, I talk about:

  • How we are ALL creative (yes, even you)
  • The role your inner critic plays in your creative process
  • How to work with your inner critic AND keep moving forward
  • Strategies to connect with your inspiration and find your next idea
  • A brief meditation to get our of your head and into your body to meet your creativity
