WHAT IS CREATIVE MEDITATION?
CREATIVE MEDITATION is a type or style of meditation that enables people to become more aware of their energy. It enables practitioners to enjoy learning to manage their energy in a practical, fun and creative way. It also teaches practitioners how to create their present moment, shift into positive a affirmative thinking and being. Creative Meditation harnesses our ability to generate and enjoy our ability to create images – and teaches us how deeply the mind and body understands this language. Imagination is powerful. Professional level sports coaches have known this for years and have harnessed this ability in effective training methods that employ conscious intentional visualisation.
We all have both a physical body and an energy/emotional body – Creative Meditation lets us discover the workings of our energy anatomy. The practice of CM supports us in manifesting the life we desire to experience in a direct and conscious way.
Every day the practice of Creative Meditation can be a new adventure. Every time the Creative Meditation tools are used, a healing occurs. For example, the release of foreign energy or memory, with the CM tools allows us to create space for our own natural healing energy to work.
While the practice of Creative Meditation is spiritual in that our energy anatomy is part of who we are as spirit, it is not based in any religion. It is not bound up in core beliefs or organizational structures. There are no gurus, or experts to enforce any rules of use. The best teachers of the Creative Meditation are the ones who remind you periodically that you are already perfect and you are not a problem to be fixed or a person who is permanently broken. In fact one of the aims of Creative Meditation is to build, create and experience a sense of wholeness and presence in the present moment. There is nothing that can replace the peace of feeling whole, feeling present and feeling that you are enough.
We are all learning to express our unique soul. The foundation of Creative Meditation is based in the knowledge that all paths to Source & Happiness are equal, and each of us is capable of discovering our own sacred truths. All teachers of CM are respectful of their students’ spiritual freedom, creative soul and individual path.
The practice of Creative Meditation aids the practitioner in finding their own answers and creating their own One to One relationship with their authentic self. Because this practice is respectful of each persons relationship with Source, Creative Meditation is also compatible with any other spiritual practice or even religion.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
For many years, high achievers, athletes, and people of all kinds have reported on the benefits of using visualization techniques to achieve goals. Many scientific studies have proven the positive effects of conscious visualization. Creative Meditation takes the science of conscious visualization to the next levels, making your ability to create imagery with your mind into a very powerful tool.
In the beginning stages of learning the Creative Meditation foundational tools, students use their imagination and innate abilities to visualize but as they progress, other natural healing abilities awaken and are safely and beneficially used. As their energy centers are activated, the student takes charge increasingly of using their creative energy to consciously heal themselves. In this way they discover that first they heal on an energy level and then their energy heals their physical body.
A good teacher provides the classroom sanctuary where new skills can be safely learned. But Creative Meditation tools and techniques themselves assist the students to rediscover the sacred sanctuaries within them. Within the spaces known as the Seat of the Soul and Sanctuary of the Heart, students empower themselves, remember their self-affinity, and find the courage to manifest and express their own best life.
