The benefits of meditation: a creative, peaceful life.
In the last years I’ve been really interested how meditation enhances the creative process in our lives.
Whether you are an artist or just want to bring more freedom, peacefulness and creativity into your personal or business life, meditation is a perfect tool to reach those goals .
The best thing: It is simple, easy, for free. Not to forget to mention the many benefits for your health. (reducing your stress level/cortisol level)
Meditation allows you discern what is important and what’s not and reveals your inner web. Here you find your resources, new thoughts and ideas, infinite perspectives and approaches and ways to handle your life and challenging situations.
Björk is using Kundalini mantras to enhance her creativity. “Kundalini is very helpful for my voice, because it involves a lot of breathing,” she says. “I turn the sound off on a yoga DVD and put some amazing music on very loud.”(Interview, The Gentlewoman spring/summer 2015)
Film-maker David Lynch is using Transcendental Meditation to “Catch The Big Fish” (meaning for him the big important project), or Rick Rubin, father of many important bands, like the Beastie Boys or RunDMC, has also been using meditation as a tool to “see through” and bring birth to those creative projects.
Dr. Ronald Alexander (psychotherapist) wrote a book about the Creative Process and Meditation as well, which is called “Wise Mind Open Mind“.
Bufferzone: Silence: Focus on your Heart.
It is easy, it is simple:
That’s what I can recommend right now for you: I’ve been practicing this simple Raja Yoga meditation technique for some years now and it is also available with an app, you can download. Just check “Heartfulness“. It is a silent meditation technique and you keep your focus on your heart.
Here you can find more information about the meditation technique “Heartfulness”.
There is also a Heartfulness-Magazine .
Also Gopi Kallayil, who is responsible for “Brand Marketing” at Google; is speaking about meditation. His latest book is titled “The Internet to the Inner-net”.
If you ever hear the word Raja Yoga, know that this means meditation. You learn to train your mind to focus on one point (which is called Dharana) and hence Dhyana (meditation) unfolds.
Maybe it is difficult in the beginning to integrate it into your daily life, but you will learn that meditation becomes like brushing your trees or taking a shower for your mind, heart and soul. With time it will be easier to integrate it and make it a regular practice.
The best thing about meditation: a creative life unfolds, because if one thing doesn’t work out, your neurons shift perspectives quickly and choose a new highway in your brain and hence you stay in the creative flow called life. Infinite options and infinite love.

Create a peaceful life. Create a peaceful world.
