Intuition as the Basis for Creativity

Intuition as the Basis for Creativity | assemblage | Scoop.it

Recently, a parent who is also a teacher, asked me on behalf of a friend to offer some advice on how to ensure that her child will grow up to exemplify a sense of higher conscientiousness. In moments like these, past recollections come to mind of parents having inquired about methods, ideas or techniques that might assist them in raising their children’s aptitudes for one particular trait or another, which they believe to be of the utmost importance. Sought after advice comes in various contexts and requests, such as “I just want my child to be ~ smart and successful” or, “just be able to use good judgment in all matters”, or “have good manners and social behavior” or, “be happy and know the value of hard work”, “live his passion”, “be a good critical thinker”, “get along with everyone”, “contribute something to the world”, “use free will responsibly”, “make good decisions”, “have common sense”, etc.


I often respond by asking, “well what about creativity, or intuition”? The response for this question is “what about them?” – followed by a reiteration regarding their original request. Some folks reply with, “yeah, those are ‘okay’, but what really concerns me are success and responsibility (or, happiness and making smart decisions, etc.).”


Again, I probe and press on saying, “just out of curiosity, what would be your definition of creativity, and intuition”? It is here that I get quaint and vague answers, which are justifiable since they feel the traits of intuition and creativity have lesser values. Then I ask their definition of their original request, whatever their top-of-the-list, or very sought after quality is, such as conscientiousness.


In practically every case, the definitions for these “more important qualities” are as indistinct and ambiguous as their definitions for the “unimportant” qualities of creativity and intuition. At this point I realize that offering distinct direction for an indistinct definition is going to be somewhat of a challenge, because, unless we agree on a same or similar definition, we may as well be having two different conversations where never the twain shall meet. This in itself is the definition of a sad truth, where people use same words with different meanings, each believing their meaning to be the truer one.....

7 Tips To Hone Your Intuition

7 Tips To Hone Your Intuition | assemblage | Scoop.it


The intuitive language is an internal one that defies cognitive reasoning. It's also silent, sudden and self-confident. Your instincts just know. When you ignore them, however, they can become increasingly louder. They're like toes being stepped on. They don't like it and they make you scream out in agony. Still, we tend to promote self-doubt and push them away; trust isn't immediate. Intuition may be felt as a whisper or like a bolt of lightning, but we all have the capacity to hear it.  Sometimes following a hunch can save your life. One student I know paid attention to her hunch about her car and found out she had brake problems; her instinct prevented an accident. Another student told me it helped him earn a fortune by selling his stocks at the right time. When we listen to our inner GPS on our yoga mat, we cultivate healthy self-respect and choose a safe and opening practice. Whether you call it a "hunch," a "gut" feeling or any other term, our intuition speaks to us and gives us insight and wisdom for making any number of decisions. When you can hear this inner voice and respond to it, you'll lead a more authentic life. Learning to listen to our intuition is an art and a skill, and you can practice it until you get it right. Here are seven tips to hone these important intuitive skills:

 

1. Set aside time for silentsitting; it cultivates a space for listening.

 2. Get comfortable with solitude; it helps you rely on your self. 3. Listen to your body more; learn to decode its sensations and signals. 4. Be honest; build integrity and authenticity in your word and deed.
5. Test your instincts out on simple things; try it next time your phone rings.
6. When you're right, say to yourself, "Thank you for listening." It builds trust and confidence.
7. Know yourself; quiet the inner critic and trust in your own voice and advice.
