How To Improve Creativity With Creative Relaxation

Do you want to be more creative? Would you like to let all those brilliant ideas that are inside of you flow freely, but feel frustrated because you feel creatively blocked?

The ability to think creatively is more important than ever these days, and not only for people engaged in traditionally creative pursuits like the arts. Creativity is now an integral part of many occupations, and regardless of your work, everyone experiences situations in their day-to-day life where creative thinking is needed to solve problems and help life run smoothly.

So, everyone can benefit from improving their creativity. But how do you do this? If you don’t think of yourself as a creative type, or your ideas just don’t flow as easily as you’d like, don’t worry. Everyone is naturally creative, and to access your creativity you just need to learn to tap into the power of your subconscious mind, from which all creative thought flows.

Creative Thought And Relaxation

Unfortunately, some people approach creative thinking as a problem to be solved, using their logical left brain. Logical thinking certainly has its place, but to maximise creativity, you need to tap into your more intuitive right brain. One of the most effective ways to do this is to learn to relax deeply. If you can sustain a state of deep relaxation, you will find that creative ideas flow naturally – it isn’t something you have to force to happen using your intellect or willpower. This is why so many people get their best ideas when drifting off to sleep, or just waking up. If you can learn to relax deeply at will, you can tap into this state at any time.

Many people have trouble really relaxing their minds, because in this culture it’s not something that we’ve generally been trained to do. Fortunately, with the help of brainwave entrainment, just about anybody can learn to relax deeply at any time. Let’s take a look in more detail at how brainwave entrainment can help you access the creative state via deep relaxation.

What Is Brainwave Entrainment?

Thanks to a natural phenomenon called the ‘frequency following response’, the brain gradually matches the frequencies of its own brainwaves to those of the sounds that it’s hearing. Since sounds of different frequencies are associated with different mental states, brainwave entrainment helps you to access these different states more easily, without having to be a skilled meditator.

The state of deep relaxation that’s required to really tap into your creativity is associated with the production of brainwaves in the theta band (4 – 8 Hz). We all pass through this state naturally as we’re falling asleep, but most people find it difficult to maintain while awake. A good brainwave entrainment track makes it much easier, and eventually your brain will become used to the process, and you won’t need the recording.

Using a brain wave entrainment recording to improve creativity is extremely easy. All you need to do is find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed, and devote some time each day (or as often as you feel the need) to sitting or lying in a comfortable place and listening to the recording. As your mind relaxes, ideas and insights will start to flow naturally. Some people get excellent results the first time they try, whereas for others it takes a bit more practice. But either way, using brainwave synchronization is generally much faster than traditional meditation.

Just remember that it’s important to use a good quality recording, or you won’t get good results. I recommend checking out the meditation recordings from The Unexplainable Store.

This is a great site with high quality products that have provided excellent results to many people. There are some free downloads available too, so be sure to try them out.
