I think what would help me better join with myself to support my creative efforts and creative life?
I feel more centered and joined with myself when I journal. I consider answering these questions as part of my journaling process. I liked the idea the person in your example did with having a separate journal for inner critic. That is something I may play with.
b) Doing Yoga
I get a lot of my most creative ideas in savasana at the end of yoga. My stress level inhibits my creativity and yoga is one of the biggest destressors I know.
c) Meditating Consistently
When I meditate consistently I really change. I am more positive. I feel better and my creativity as it a higher level. I also hear less negative criticizing self talk.
