Awaken Your Inspiration!

Within all of us lies something quite magical, loving and uniquely our own, we need merely to awaken it!

About five years ago, I picked up a magazine featuring a series of articles on some of the world’s most creative minds. Just as I was finishing the last article, it occurred to me. All of them had one thing in common. They all had their own very unique way of getting their inspirations out of their heads and into the world in a moment’s notice. One designer went so far as to resurface his workspace with a blackboard type material.

Inspired by his genius, I decided to cover the walls of my workspace with artfully hung, clusters of dry erase boards. I cannot begin to describe the sense of freedom and assurance I have felt since the moment I hung my first board. Over the years, I have filled my boards with anything from gibberish and doodles to bouts of inspiration that have profoundly changed the way I look at and love my life.

You too can Awaken Your Inspiration!

1. Open up your journal and write a love letter to your inspiration, inviting it to take a more active part along your path of growth.

2. Develop a way to take notes and record what your inspiration is telling you throughout your day. When I’m not in my workspace, I carry a pen and pad.

3. Schedule a time to meet with your inspiration each day. The morning works best for me. Find a quiet space, close your eyes, relax your breathing and imagine your inspiration coming forth in anyway it feels comfortable. Once you feel it is present, have a conversation with it. When you are finished speaking with it, thank it for coming and invite it to visit or stay with you throughout your day. (I’ve also had a great deal of success working with my inspiration, when I am doing things that require little thought, like washing the dishes or brushing my teeth.)

4. Listen to the many subtle and loving cues you are receiving from your alignment with your inspiration.

  1. Hi Rob –

    I love this blog. It has inspired in me a desire to cover the walls in my office/ school room with some kind of inspiration catching material. I’ll let you know what I find! I also want to incorporate some time each day with the kids to do some inspired listening.

    Thanks for the call last week. We are home now and diving back into this reality!

    Hugs,

    Tamara

  2. Hey Tamara,

    I love the idea of inpsired listening! Let me know how that goes as well!

    peace,

  3. Hi Rob,

    I just found your blog and immediately liked the connection. I think visiting you more often will assist me in my own journeys of self leadership and discovery.

    Sadly I am at work and cannot be on here long, but I look forward to coming back and reading much more, and looking more into inspired listening.

    Maybe we will have some ideas to share.
    Here is to accidental meetings.
