Using Our Imaginative Talks Is What Leads to Creativity
Have you heard yourself in your head/mind talk before? Or the idiomatic expression of the mind’s eye? That is an instinctual heritage. One that allows us to process and follow up with things innately. It is also through this mind’s eye we bring things forethought to fruition. This is the power of our imagination.
Imaginative talk, on the other hand, is similar to this. But rather than the picture it, we fathom things theoretically and bring them to light as stipulated mentally. One of the biggest boosting factors of creativity is the ability to use your imagination. Some people use their imaginations fully whereas others mix their imaginations with reality to create something.
When it comes to productivity, using our imaginations equally helps a whole lot. Talk about how you can think out your next steps or make a flow of how you intend to handle all you have to do for each day for instance. Our imaginative talks help us by talking to us about things we haven’t yet brought to life or haven’t yet been created in reality.
It means that these talks equally speak to about how to go about things. For example, writing. Using my imagination to harness my thoughts aids writers in writing. It tells us what to say before we write them. The good thing about this is that it creates room for raw thoughts, and materials to use to bring our writing to fruition.
It’s now left for us to tone them down or emphasize them during creation.
But it’s noteworthy that a balance should be struck between using what we have in our imaginations during creation. To avoid coming off offensive, insensitive, and so on. After all, creativity was meant to boost other’s spirit and not kill it.
Imaginative talks help artists in their work of art creation. Talk about musicians, sketchers, and so on. Before their creativity comes to play, there must have been some imaginary sensitization to it. That is not to say that spontaneity isn’t part of the process.
Before a musician creates songs, they’ve had imaginative talks. These experiences, audience type, and genre, help harness the tone they’ll use to release the work of art. Hence, the reason I previously highlighted the need for a balance.
Our imaginations are powerful. It is a gift we were all born with. Some have the guts to use it raw, others use them wisely, whereas some others don’t implement that side to them at all.
Using our imaginations creates more need for them. Just like exercising a muscle. It expands. When we don’t use them as much they shrink.
To exercise this prowess, we need to first admit that we have them. We need to find what works for us. Hobbies, daily rituals, or routines that we are naturally drawn to start from there.
The world needs more creativity and actual creations. They’re soul uplifters, hope givers, body enhancers, healers, and fulfilling in their making. That is why we must never give up but continue to create what we can for the world to heal in totality.
I’m talking about people drawn to music to make music, for painters to paint, artists to create works of art, and drawings, for writers to keep writing, and sculptors to continue sculpting.
Let’s put our imaginative talks to good use. It may not appear easy at first, it may appear hazy and conjured with a different reality. But once we start, it gets better.
