Reflecting on how meditation can help your creative process


When you reflect on what you gain from meditation, you see that these are qualities that help your creative process. When you are calm, centered, free of obsessive thoughts, open and Present, then your creative process works better.

Focus
As you deepen into a meditation practice, you find that you concentrate better through out the day. Focusing on your breathing day after day helps you focus in all areas of your life. 


Patience
Meditation is learning to sit still and be Present. It is hard work to pay attention to your immediate experience. If you can do this for 20 to 60 minutes a day, you can do anything. 

Calmness
Meditation is calming the mind. Calming the mind results in calming the body. Calmness is very useful in creating and helps you learn to stay with your creative process. 


Insight
Mediation encourages moments of insight. When creating this leads to getting inspirational ideas, being open to new ideas and catching fleeting intuitive urges. 

Perspective
Mediation chances your perspective. As we sit with and observe the mind we start to let go of some of the trivial clutter that occupies the mind. It helps us focus on the big picture and what really matters. In the creative process, you notice a shift in what you observe, and what you are willing to let go of and to see the big picture.
