Meditation is also recommended a prominent hospital in Boston for patients. recoveringIt cancer and heart disease has body, been scientifically shown to calm the reduce blood pressure and enhance the immune system. The benefits of daily meditation are becoming more accepted by the Enhanced medical and scientific communities. Enhanced inner creativity is an additional by product. SelfAwareness: The practice of self-awareness runs through all the great religious and philosophical disciplines. Buddhism, Zen, Sufi Mystics, Christian Mystics, Hindu Yogis, and Taoists practice the art of mindful self-awareness. This is a non-judgmental form of watching one’s daily actions and thoughts in the present moment in a detached frame of mind. When learned and applied, this can create the necessary gap between the ego and the Self and great clarity of mind unfolds. Soft-Focus: This is an excellent way to stop the thinking process in an immediate and busy environment. Just allow the eyes to maintain a soft focus on a neutral surface and be aware of everything around you without focusing on any one thing. You will notice immediately that your peripheral vision is increased and your sensitivity to your entire environment is enhanced, while your mind is calmed. This is the focus of martial artists, dancers and well-trained athletes. When you create a soft-focus the ego is temporarily set aside and the subconscious mind where inner creativity abounds can come to the surface. Light-Heartedness: This is an excellent frame of mind to keep the personality ego from getting a rigid hold on the psyche and stifling creative thought. When we see the humor in everything, we perceive the intuitive and original moments that otherwise go unnoticed when we act from habitual behavior patterns. Humor embellishes the absurd and unusual, and this is where creativity springs from.If any one of these methods is practiced daily they too can become creative behavior patterns. When a fluidity of mind, expressing from the present moment with calm clarity becomes a habit, creative mind is always available. In this way the experience of inner creativity will become a living presence in your life Ego detachment is the perfect attitude for creating a gap in your present personality programming. We all have behavioral programs that we have accepted through social, parental, genetic and educational conditioning. These seem necessary for mutual coordination and cooperation in society. Yet, the need to be perpetually conditioned is what keeps us from being spontaneously creative.


Clarity

pervasive.

The difficult part is unlearning the conditioning you have accepted all your life. For each individual this will be different. There is no set of conditions that you must give up, just the acceptance of a conditioned response to everything you do. Allow yourself to engender the wonder of a child. Challenge habitual responses. Be completely present. Allow yourself to become detached from what you’ve always assumed was “real” and see what happens. This is almost too simple for those who enjoy complexity and intellectual stimulation. That intellectual mindset is itself a conditioned response to life. Most approaches to creativity are to look outside of ourselves for something that is novel or stimulating. Novelty is not necessarily creative. Stimulation doesn’t resolve problems. Truly creative people can stop at any moment, view what they are doing and see a sincerely original and resolute answer to whatever question they ask. This is because they don’t live for other people’s opinions, nor do they have to look outside of themselves for answers to difficult questions. They know instinctively that within themselves, hidden within the creative mind, that momentary pause of detached reflection, the answer lies waiting to be discovered. Creative mind is always present in that interval or gap between a conditioned ego response and a spontaneous self-aware intuitive moment. It can be learned. It has always been within you it just grows dimmer as we get used to not allowing it as we did when we were children. Dive into the gap head first, allow your heart to follow. Meditation has the reputation of being mystical and religious. For our purposes, meditation is just sitting in silence. This sounds simple, but it is very difficult. In our society we are constantly bombarded with input - TV, radio, the Internet, other people, etc. As a result, we never sit in silence with ourselves. When you first meditate, you r mind will race. These thoughts are what’s in your conscious mind, and as long as they are there you are not getting in touch with your subconscious. The key here is to relax and let those thoughts go. This will seem impossible at first, but practice it. Start small, with 5 minutes a day, and work your way up. Journaling is similar to meditating in that you are trying to get past conscious thoughts. Journaling is simply writing your thoughts down. Unlike keeping a diary, though, the kind of Journaling we are talking about it is free flow writing where your pen never stops moving and you don’t care about what you write. When you start, it is ok to write ‘I have nothing to write’ over and over until something comes up. Don’t censor yourself, and don’t let your pen stop. It is best to journal in the morning, before your conscious mind has been filled with events of the day. Journaling should be done by hand, not on the computer. When you write, try to fill three pages. The first pageor two will be basic conscious stuff you need to get out of your mind. Filling three pages helps get past all that.For a good deal more on Journaling, read ‘The Artist’s Way’ by Julia Cameron.If you want to start tapping into

the French neurologist J. Martin Charoct. Freud witnessed numerous demonstrations of what today we would call posthypnotic suggestion. Charcot hypnotized subjects and requested that they perform certain tasks following their emergence from hypnotic trance. The subjects carried out the tasks, but were unable to recall why they did so. These demonstrations in combination with clinical experiences suggested to Freud that a large part of what we do is based on unconscious motivations. Freud’s view of human nature is that we are fundamentally selfish animals driven by aggressive urges and the desire for pleasure. People learn, however, how to repress their cruder impulses into the unconscious region of the mind as they grow up. At the core of conflicts that lead to mental illness is often a denial of urges that people regard as unacceptable and do not with to admit are a part of themselves. Mental illness occurs when such urges become too strong to deal with through the normal coping process. Freudian therapy involves discovery of the repressed urges causing the dysfunction. Freud analyzed dreams to gain insights into his patients’ repressed desires, and referred to dreams as “the royal road” to the unconscious. In Freud’s view, the purpose of dreams is to allow us to satisfy in fantasies the instinctual urges that we have repressed into the unconscious. So that we do not awaken as a result of the strong emotions that would be evoked if we were to dream about the literal fulfillment of such desires, the part of the mind that Freud called the censor transforms the dream content so as to disguise its true meaning. The process of psychoanalytic dream interpretation involves a “decoding” of the censored surface dream in order to discover its real meaning. Carl Jung divided the unconscious mind into two subdivisions, the personal unconscious and the collective unconscious. While the personal unconscious is shaped by our personal experiences, the collective unconscious represents our inheritance of the collective experience of humankind. This storehouse of humanity’s experiences exists in the form of archetypes, which sometimes determine specific dream images. Both Freudian and Jungian psychology are sometimes referred to as depth psychologies, meaning that they focus on the processes of


the unconscious mind. he unconscious is that part f the psyche that s normally beyond the reach of consciousness. he basic notion of an unconscious, s well as the idea that our behavior n influenced by unconscious motivations, s very old. However, it was Sigmund Freud who rst put forward general theory of the unconscious and ts interaction with he conscious mind. Freud’s concept f the relationship between the conscious nd the unconscious has been compared o that of an “iceberg” meaning that only relatively tiny part (the conscious) s usually visible, while ninety percent the unconscious) is below the surface. reud formulated his view partially s a result of his training in hypnosis under he French neurologist J. artin Charoct. reud witnessed numerous demonstrations f what today we would call posthypnotic uggestion. harcot ypnotized subjects nd requested that they perform certain tasks ollowing their emergence from hypnotic trance. he subjects carried out the tasks, ut were unable to ecall why they did so. hese demonstrations in combination ith clinical experiences suggested to Freud hat a large part of hat we do s based on unconscious motivations. reud’s view of human nature is that e are fundamentally selfish animals driven by ggressive urges and he desire for pleasure. eople learn, owever, how to repress their cruder impulses nto the unconscious region of he mind as they grow up. t the core of conflicts that lead to mental llness is often a denial of urges that people egard as unacceptable and do not with o admit are a part of themselves. ental illness occurs when such urges become too trong to deal with through he normal coping process. reudian therapy involves discovery of the epressed urges causing the dysfunction. reud analyzed dreams o gain insights nto his patients’ repressed desires, and eferred to dreams as “the royal road” o the unconscious. n Freud’s view, the purpose of dreams s to allow us to satisfy in fantasies the nstinctual urges that e have repressed into the unconscious. o that we do not awaken as a result of the trong emotions that would be evoked f we were to dream about the literal fulfillment f such desires, the part of the mind hat Freud called the censor transforms he dream content so as to disguise ts true meaning. he process of psychoanalytic dream

The only time you can safely get away with justifying text is if your type is small enough and your line is long enough. If your line is shorter or if you don’t have many worlds on the line, then as the type aligns to the margins the words space themselves to accommodate it. It usually looks awkward. You’ve seen newspaper columns where all text is justified, often with a word stretching all the way across the column, or a little word on either side of the column with a big gap in the middle. But that’s what can happen with justified type. When you do it, the effect might not be as radical as the newspaper column, but if your lines are relatively short, you will inevitably end up with uncomfortable gaps in some lines, while other lines will be all squashed together.

AND DREAMING

ATIVITY

There are many ways to reach this inner creative potential. First we need to put the ego to rest temporarily. The chattering personality needs to be set aside for a time so that the fullness of the entire psyche can see the light of mind. Creative insight always feels like a momentary gap has been opened and a burst of light has surfaced. Intuitive thought is a sudden complete understanding that issues forth, as if out of the blue. The veil of presumption and doubt is lifted. Creative psyche opens up and releases the gem of wisdom we were waiting for. To understand and develop inner creativity we first need to understand the psyche. We are more than meets the eye. The depth of our full psychological potential is beyond the reach of the personality ego. Beneath the conscious ego’s veneer is the essential Self which guides and directs the body through the subconscious mind. We all know that something keeps our heart pumping, blood flowing, lungs breathing, etc. all without conscious intent. This has been dubbed the subconscious. This mysterious, yet ever reliable, subconscious also houses the fullest potential of the psyche. When we can tap this inner realm, raise the subconscious intent to conscious awareness, we get in touch with and utilize our inner creativity.

CONSCIOUS The grid system in graphic design is a way of organizing content on a page, using any combination of margins, guides, rows and columns. It is commonly seen in newspaper and magazine layout with columns of text and images. One grid, or a collection of grids, may be used across an entire project to achieve a consistent look and feel. In a finished product, the grid is invisible, but following it helps in creating successful print and web layouts.

creative grid system & Breaking Out of the Grid

Once the grid is established, it is up to the designer when and how to break out of it. This doesn’t mean the grid system in graphic design will be completely ignored. Instead, elements may cross over from column to column, extend to the end of the page, or extend onto adjacent pages. Breaking out of the grid can lead to the most interesting page designs.

The mission of the unconscious mind that produces your dreams is exactly to protect you from your wild side and help you overcome the absurdity you are born with. However, since you have precious information about all the crucial points of your life, this protection gives you a secret power. Only by translating the meaning of your own dreams, you have objective information about other people and especially about yourself, and your life, being able to prepare the future results you desire. I simplified Jung’s method of dream interpretation, transforming it into a practical method of dream translation that everyone easily learns, and starts immediately seeing positive results with all the notions they have.
