Do This Guided Meditation For Creativity And Clarity

by Mindvalley December 22, 2017

Creative geniuses can turn their creativity on and off like a faucet. So how can you learn to boost your creativity? With this guided meditation for creativity and clarity you will be able to amplify your performance in a very short time.

How Meditation Prepares The Mind For Creativity

What do Arianna Huffington, Oprah Winfrey, and Jeff Weiner (CEO of LinkedIn) have in common? They’re huge advocates of meditation.

As you can see, some of the most well-known, busiest people in the world still carve out time for the practice. They do so because they know that a short meditation can actually help them gain the clarity and creativity they need to make important decisions.

1. Improve Your Memory And Focus

Scientists have known for a while now that the heavy use of screens and the internet changes the way we develop. Our attention spans have become shorter and our focus has worsened. But there is good news: studies show that meditation can help you improve your brain functioning in a multitude of ways. Meditating for even 10 minutes a day can improve our concentration and our working memory, defined as the ability to keep information active in one’s mind.

2. Reduce Stress And Anxiety

Think of stress and anxiety as your emergency response systems. Stress warns you that something might be dangerous now, while anxiety cautions you so that you can prepare for the future. That said, stress and anxiety might be useful as signals, but they’re less useful if they’re your constant physiological states. They wear down your central nervous system. And your CNS is responsible for gathering information from all over the body and coordinating activity. When your CNS is worn down, it’s easier for stress (mental or physical) to overwhelm your body.

Meditation actually helps you restore your CNS 3 times more than sleep does. Because of this, it improves your response to stress and anxiety. It also decreases the amount of stress and anxiety you feel overall.

3. Move You Out Of Negative Loops

You know those negative loops you can get stuck in? Those times your bad mornings turned into a horrible day?

Well, meditation actually helps stop those negative loops in their tracks. When we don’t take a moment to breathe and be grateful, it can be really easy to hold onto emotions that are doing us no service. Taking a moment to clear the mind from fear and distraction is no easy task. But, luckily, guided meditations really do help us return to a positive, peaceful state of mind.

This guided meditation in particular will take you on a journey into your mind, and amplify your ability to tap into ideas and create new ones. By connecting with the wide array of thoughts in your conscious and subconscious mind, this meditation will help you unlock new ideas easier than ever before.

Relax, take a deep breath, and sink into a deep state of creation with this guided meditation.
