Creativity for the mystic has special meaning. In the world
of the mystic all is one. This means that there's only one
Creator. Your job as an artist, painter or writer is simply
to attune with this One source of all creation, listen and
report on what you're told. This is the essence of divine
inspiration. It's similar to the advice I was given as a
young businessman when my boss and I were on our way to an
important meeting. He turned to me and said, "Keep your
mouth shut and listen good."
As the author of Mystic Warrior, I am most familiar with the
art of writing. Many people are fearful that they don't know
how to write or that they're not qualified. Since everyone
is tapping into the same source, it doesn't matter. All you
have to do is, "Keep your mouth shut and listen good." Everyone
is qualified, because, as it turns out, God is an excellent writer.
Anyone can write. The secret is simply, how do you attune
with this One source of creation? Writers attempt to do this
by following certain routines or rituals. Rituals are simply
a series of acts that are meant to impress upon the
conscious mind, what is being transmitted on a higher plane.
Holy Communion, blessing of the food, blowing a ram's horn
are all examples of rituals. They are meant to put you in
the proper state of mind so your attunement follows.
In the world of the writer, the rituals may involve writing
at a certain time of day, with a favorite typewriter or at a
certain desk. Smart writers try to recreate the same
feelings they experienced when they were successful in
pouring out material. A mystic takes this one step further
and you can do this too.
Mystics create a personal sanctum that facilitates
attunement with the one Creator. Now you can create one on
the physical plane — a favorite recliner or special room for
meditation or spiritual studies — but the more important one
is on a higher plane. This is where you will go to receive
The technique is simple. Visualize your sanctum using the
techniques I described in 3
Steps to Manifesting Your Ideal Life. But before you do,
you should decide what purpose you'd like to achieve. If you're
just starting out, then
your purpose may very well be "what should I write about?
What message does the one Creator want me to bring through
and share with the world?"
Understand, that when you return to the physical world, you
may have to do some research. In fact that's one of the key
reasons people suffer from writer's block — they run out of
material or don't have the knowledge to describe the
information that's been given to them in their personal
It's a good idea to visit your personal sanctum on a daily
basis. There are additional benefits to this such as
increased vitality, increased ability to concentrate,
control of emotions, enhanced intuition, the removal of fear
But the prime benefit of ascending to your own personal
sanctum is to receive inspiration by direct attunement with
God, the font of all creativity. •
