Tips from Author Jodhan

For February 2017:

Using a fireside to help recreate

I discovered this technique purely by accident and after trying it out a few times I am now convinced that it works like a charm. Of course, this technique is more available to you in the fall and winter but nevertheless it works.

There are specific senses that can be stimulated through the use of this technique and in turn these senses will help to stimulate your creative juices.

First off; get your fireside going and then lie close to it. Next allow your sense of sight to concentrate on the dancing flames as they play gently with each other. Allow yourself to enjoy their liveliness and try to discover the various dancing patterns.

Next, allow yourself to be enveloped in the warmth of the fireside and then listen to the soft crackles of the firewood. It is quiet and this all that you can hear.

I urge you to try this strategy. Surrender your entire being to the sight, sound, and warmth of your fireside and soon enough you'll quickly find that your imagination will start to wake up.
