There was a great article I read about hypnosis and creativity a few weeks ago. It brings up an important phrase that I’ve seldom heard before: “quality of consciousness.”
For any type of creativity — artistic, professional, problem-solving — you need to first ask yourself, “What is my quality of consciousness?” Are you distracted? Are you anxious? Is there underlying depression? What is polluting your consciousness and serving as an obstacle toward reaching your creative goals? Creativity is not this palatable thing to attain; creativity is a mode of operation originating in the brain. Hypnosis can help you better reach that frame of mind.
Da Vinci. Picasso. Shakespeare. What is creativity? Where does it come from? I’m certainly not about to turn this blog post into a TED talk, a Jonah Lehrer article, or a college thesis.
We all know creativity when we see it, and it is a trait that most, if not all, people aspire to. Whether you’re a systems analyst, a software developer, a musician, or a mailman, every profession can benefit from some sort of creative consciousness and abilities, and every person can benefit from having a creative outlet.
While everyone might not have the talent to be a creative artist, everyone does have his or her own unique creativity.
