Find Time to Stretch Your Mindset into Abundance and Creativity – Got 30 Seconds?

Wow – what an exciting call we had last night!  Artist and Creativity Coach Ellene Breedlove Davis shared secrets, suggestions and solutions about … “Finding Time to be Creative: Portrait of the Artist.”

On the call Ellene offered fantastic tips about creativity, learning to plan your time and set boundaries for yourself, and starting to joyfully welcome your creative energy into your life!  I was especially interested to hear her talk about the connection between her physical space and her creativity … and thought of an exercise that we recently shared in our Finding Time E-zine that will be very helpful as you open yourself to your creative energy … so read on!

Finding time to gently elongate your body in a simple, 30-second stretch opens up your inner spaciousness, making room for your feelings and ideas … for YOU!  Reaching outward from deep inside reduces your urge to push your pace into a headlong rush, too!  As you take time to stretch, you’ll gently see and feel how your understanding of time is intimately linked with how you live in your body.

It’s really quite remarkable. When your body is cramped, your perceptions, feelings, and energies will narrow, too. Shallow breathing and constriction will almost always ratchet up anxiety.  This, in turn, generates a false sense of urgency.  When you are cramped and constricted and urgent, your creativity is not likely to flow!

Compare that to how you feel when your body is well-stretched and humming with vitality. Naturally, then, you are living in SPACIOUS time … and your creativity has room to breathe and blossom!

So celebrate the ever-present miracle of your body unfolding. Try this simple, potent exercise and “Grow Long Arms” to enrich your awareness of the moment in any undisturbed location:

Whether seated or standing, simply stretch out your arms to either side. See how moment by moment, your arms reach further… and further. Now relax, and bring your awareness within. Notice how exploring this outer space has increased your sense of INNER spaciousness, too. As you oxygenate your body and stretch your muscles, a new calmness and relaxed appreciation of time suffuses your being.

Often it’s these quick treats that help us the most, because we can engage in them so easily … anywhere, at any time of day! So indulge and be the stronger for it… give your body all the love and oxygen it so deserves, and enjoy entering this special flow of time.  And please drop me a line and let me know how you’re doing with stretching your body and your sense of time … I’d love to hear!
