3 New Ways to Get Fresh Ideas
- Ask your readers without polling them

- Get moving to get clarity
Ask Your Readers Without Polling ThemBefore I write, I almost always sit quietly in a short meditation to connect to my heart before writing. After taking a bike ride last week to get my energy moving, I asked in meditation what I should write about. I ended up with a wonderful list and this post was one of those ideas. I was reminded that I should share the ways that I bring in energy and spirit to my technology world. Here’s the guided meditation you can use to ask what your readers want and/or need.
Stay sitting in your desk chair. If you have a meditation space already, don’t worry about going to that space. Just remain in the space where you work. We want to bring the energy of meditation to your work, the energy of the heart to infuse your writing. Take 3 deep breaths to relax and bring your attention to the present moment. Then bring your attention to the area of your heart and breathe into your heart to fill it with light. With your attention remaining in your heart, imagine your readers/your audience in front of you. Your audience is those that are on your list and those that will be in the future. First, send your love to them from your heart. Now, in that silence, ask what they want to hear. Ask them what they want to learn from you or what they want you to share. In the stillness, see what answers you get. If you get a list, just open your eyes and write them down. Once you feel complete, give thanks to them and bring your awareness back to your breathing and slowly open your eyes.Here’s the audio of the above meditation. As I started to write the meditation, I felt my guides saying ‘Record It!’. So, I did! Enjoy! Listen to it as many times as you need. ?
