Guided Imageries to Inspire Your Creative Journey

Discovery, expansion, surrender, nurturing, trust, courage, play, freedom, and comfort.

By Molly Childers and Chris Dunmire | Updated November 3, 2018


For the seeking artist, creativity is a portal one enters to journey far beyond point A to B. Engaging in creative process affords a magnificent opportunity to reach higher and deeper states of being through to acts of exploration and expression.

Through creativity we journey through layers of encouragement, expansion, trust and surrender, towards new discoveries and attitudes that helps us to arrive at new ways of thinking, doing, and being.

Guided Imagery intertwines words and imagination to evoke positive scenarios and possibilities to stimulate and inspire your creativity. These meditations are centered around the themes of discovery, expansion, surrender, nurturing, trust, courage, play, freedom, and comfort and inspired by the Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching™ model developed by Jill Badonsky with Robert Maurer, PhD.

Additionally, each guided journey features a Going Deeper exercise after the reading to further instill the imagery and activate the seeds of inspiration.
