These basic ideas can be used in any creative process that you go into. I have created a worksheet, aimed for creating a photoshoot, but you can use it in any of your creative process or just to tune up your intuitive game. You can receive the worksheet by entering your e-mail below!
1. Get to know your intuition
First you need to know how your intuition appears in your life and what it means to you. We might need to let go of some ideas about how our intuition should appear like, and see how it looks for ourselves. Maybe you don't receive things through "seeing", maybe it is more of an intuitive hearing or feeling that works for you.
2. Work that intuitive muscle
The more you give attention for your intuition, the more it strengthens. Practice makes masters. When you allow yourself to start listening and trusting those tiny nudges, it is more easy to notice your intuition. Notice what happens in your body when you are making decisions. Is your body responding in the same way as your words? Cultivating body awareness is a powerful way to uptune your intuition. It will be a valuable asset for you in all parts of the creative process.
3. Follow your creative desires
It could be called the Sherlock Holmes-game: I think it's like following intuitive leads that unravel the mystery. Give yourself permission to go where you desire to. Give yourself permission to enjoy you creativity.
4. Create a physical container
We need to pull our ideas into physicality to make them real. Once you have ideas and vision you can create intention for your work, and most importantly plan it out. Be respectful for your self - you wouldn't miss a meeting with someone else, so why would you leave your creative self hanging?
At this point fears, resistance and doubts usually arise. Don't let yourself be weighed down by them - they are a natural part of a creative evolutionary process. I believe they surface because they are ready to be transformed into something new. Remind yourself of why you wanted to do this in the first place, why this excites you.
5. The Leap Express
This is the part where we need to jump and let go. We have ideas, but we need to let them unravel in their own way. I like to clean my mind before I go in front of the camera. You might want to do something that relaxes you - jump, do something silly, shake, make funny noises and let go of any unneeded ideas of what you should look like. This is your moment to have fun and enjoy! The camera sees what you are feeling.
A one last tip on viewing the images:
It can feel sometimes a little awkward to see our selves in images. We can be very critical to ourselves. The camera seizes tiny little moments in ways that we get to see ourselves in new angles. Remember to be curious, inspective, a student of your own body and expression. Give love to all parts of yourself. There is no human on earth that doesn't look sometimes silly in a picture. Learn to receive the whole spectrum of yourself. It can be very good to view the images with someone you trust, who can give you another perspective, if you start to feel overly critical.
