It seems to me that there are some commonalities between creativity and intuition.
For starters, both require that we acknowledge their presence. In other words, both creativity and intuition seem to work better when you pay attention to them.
Second, I think it helps each of these faculties to have confidence and trust in them (both as singularities and as a synergy)
Third, learning how to distinguish between intuitive responses–on one hand– and prejudices and jumping to conclusions– on the other– seems to make creativity juicier.
I notice that in the time since I have given myself permission to pay attention to my intuition and creativity, life has gotten better. Have you found this?
