BRAINSTORM AN IDEA OF THE MIND
Brainstorming has traditionally been done verbally. Here you will
brainstorm an idea in your inner eye (or ear if it is something
musical, or taste buds if it is something to cook or eat).
Pick a concept or a problem or a challenge that intrigues you. You
might want to pick several, sleep on them, and then decide on one that
you like the best.
Breathe deeply and go to a place on your inner journey that's peaceful
and lovely. Then put the brainstorming subject on your inner screen,
or in the minds eye.
Tell yourself you want to explore all the possibilities and then watch
them come. They may come in groups, followed by a period of quiet, and
the come in groups again. Do NOT judge what comes up as terrific or
awful or anything in-between.
In a notebook or on a sketch pad, quickly note down every image or
idea. Set a quanitity goal for a certain period of time, say two or
three dozen in an hour. Whatever comes up, however unimportant it may
seem, note it down.
At the end of the time period, look over what you've done. Note how
rich and diverse your imagination is.
Feel good knowing you have a wonderful imagination and that you have
the power to make it even more so.
May you find the joy and peace that you deserve, and may you utilize
this text to assist you in your ventures...
