Message From Your Universe: Fake It Till You Make It!
Call it bluffing, faking, make belief, whatever you want. It doesn't really matter. As long as you believe it will happen, that's what counts the most. If you think you are poor, you will stay poor and nothing good will come out of it. If you think you are rich, but yet, haven't reached wealth yet, you will be on your way to reaching wealth. I am not saying to go and spend money that you do not have, but prepare for money to come and bless you with wealth and abundance. It is based on your thoughts and belief. You need to start changing the way you perceive life and especially yourself. The rest is based on your actions to make things happen.

Listen to Your Daydreams, Authorize Them to Ignite a Blaze of Creation or Innovation
Many discoveries and inventions were first processed, by inventors or creators, during the times that they allowed themselves to daydream. To daydream may seem unnecessary, though, it's the mind that decides when, if,and why it needs to send you and me messages that are out-of-the-ordinary or whimsical by category. Can you imagine wanting to eat meat on-the-go without bread? The people, or person who invented bread gave humanity one of the most important innovative creations, by mankind; even recognized as a staple food, in the bible, which declares the significance and life-altering importance of this dreamed invention. Daydreams have also been responsible for great poetry, books, painting's and for so many creative things! I cannot even begin to imagine life without the innate ability to daydream a creation into existence. Landing on the moon was also a daydream,or a dream, no less, and of course, we are all glad to see how well that turned out. Before too long, our dreams of landing us on Mars, will be a reality! Make your daydreams a reality and be prepared to see how your creative mind can design what you have always aspired to live, or to manifest.

Relaxation As Part of the Creative Process
The environment and the mind are constantly emitting impulses or providing stimuli to the body via the nervous system, which consists of the electrical circuits that run throughout the body. The mind is constantly providing orders to various body parts to get them to do its bidding while the environment is a gigantic theater of sensory input without end. This makes the body a conduit for the flows going into the mind from the environment and back out to the environment and from the environment coming into the mind and back out from the mind to the environment. All of this flowing and non-stop sensory input keeps the body in a state of enervation, which causes damage, slowing, overloading, and burn out. Enervation is simply when the body feels drained of energy or experiences exhaustion from too much stimulation (overloaded circuits). For artists, relaxation is the only method of reversing the effects of enervation and is therefore a vital practice to achieve creative longevity. True relaxation means refraining from artificial forms of stimulation and sensory input to experience one's self and one's environment in a natural state.

Catharsis and the Creative Process
Creativity is the most intense path to catharsis. The mind must connect to the emotions and form an idea into a physical shape such as a book or painting. The mind and the emotions must unite into a single line of intention that fills the work of art completely with a singular creative purpose. Whether it's a new recipe, clothing design, or symphony, the creation must receive and retain the full intention of your concentrated effort. The result of any act of creation should always be the physical form of aesthetic desire, which is the drive to see something become real that only exists in your imagination. As we fill an aesthetic product with our desire to make it real, it forms a vacuum within us that is steadily filled with more ideas of a similar quality to the original. The filling of this creative vacuum in human terms is felt as a surge of inspiration or illumination in spiritual circles. Others report it as a spiritual awakening, the seeing of transcendental visions, or catharsis.

Fear of Risk Can Be a Creativity Cruncher
Growth as an individual, as a professional - be it in the sciences, the arts, in business or in areas of social service - requires varying degrees of thoughtful risk-taking. You do need to take chances at times and venture into fields of work, study and communication that you have not yet tried. Resting on past successes means that you are now simply relying upon as well as regurgitating past achievements. Doing so habitually, will stultify any potential you have for further development. We all have this exciting potential for growth.
