Deliberation Creation practices tend to involve a lot of repetition. It's rarely a one and done kind of gig. To reprogram negative beliefs or create a new experience out of thin air, you will often find yourself repeating the same practices day in and day out to leverage your focus.
That can get dull. The human brain is a funny thing. It likes repetition to a certain degree because it likes familiarity. Any thought, process, or practice that you're working regularly will become familiar quickly.
Here's the rub. There is another part of the brain that likes things that are different. Newness is exciting. We crave new experiences and new things. The reward center in the brain lights up in all kinds of ways at the very thought of something new or different.
So, it's a push and pull. We work best in familiarity, AND we're wildly excited about newness.
The problem with that in deliberate creation is that we get bored with the repetition and often abandon or move on to new, but similar practices too quickly. You're making progress with your alignment, and you ditch some or all of that progress by changing things up and starting over.
In most cases, a smarter option might be to commit to repetition in your deliberation creation and deliberately create some freshness in your life elsewhere.
Here are three ways to delight in newness that will help your deliberate creation practice along rather than have you stuttering with too many starts and stops in your focus.
Get rid of stuff you no longer want, need or use. Old stuff carries old energy that can stink up your vibrational space without you evening knowing.
Create as much white space in your environment as possible. Clean off your counters, tables, and desk. Organize your drawers. Extra credit points for rearranging your furniture.
The field of infinite potential delivers change more quickly when the physical space you're manifesting has some emptiness. Creation likes a vacuum.
So, clear your junk, tidy up, and play with your environment. If you need some inspiration check out Jacqueline Gates and her LOA Nesting Program.
If you have internet access and a computer there is no excuse for not being a student of something all the time. There are so many ways to learn online that are free it's ridiculous.
You can take college courses, learn a new language, take music lessons, learn to program, take creative writing workshops, and about a million other things, without spending a cent or leaving your home.
If you're keeping your brain busy learning new tricks, keeping your deliberate creation practice on track will be much easier. That part of you that craves new will be satisfied. The repetition of your LOA practice won't feel so distracting.
For a lot of people, it might sound counter-intuitive to say meditation might break you out of a rut, but it does.
Sometimes when we're having trouble staying focused it's not boredom, but instead it's mental fatigue or overwhelm. Giving the brain some white space through meditation can make the repetitive nature of any task more doable.
Additionally, meditation exercises the brain's muscle for being able to concentrate. Concentration and focus are critical for deliberate creators.
So, by committing to meditation, you can essentially kill two birds with one stone. You create some blank space in your brain so it can be more creative and engaged and you naturally become better at focus. That is a massive win/win.
