Creativity Comes and Goes

by Cay Randall-May, Ph.D.,   HealerWhoCreates

In ancient Greek and Roman times it was thought that goddesses called the Muses bestowed creativity onto mortals.  Few people believe that today, but everyone experiences times when they feel more or less creative. I will list a few examples and hope that you will add more from your own experience:


We usually feel more creative when:

            we take time to relax and be playful.


            we are around other creative people.


            we are going through a particularly exciting or emotional period in our lives.



We sometimes feel less creative when:

            we feel pressure to meet a deadline, as in a class or work assignment.


            we feel physically tired, in physical pain, or are otherwise unwell.


            we suspect that our efforts will be over-criticized or made fun of by others.




In a future entry I will suggest some ways to get in touch with our creativity no matter what else is happening in our lives.
