Creative Writing with Meditation Machines

Apocryphally Salvador Dali used to put a spoon under his elbow around siesta time. We he nodded off and it clattered to the floor, he’d awaken and paint what was on ‘his mind’.

Nowadays artists, writers and musicians can use modern technology in the form of Meditation Machines to achieve the same result in a much more controlled manner.

Tom Evans is using meditation machines to teach authors how to get their conscious minds out of the way so that they can tap into their unconscious mind and the collective consciousness.

Many people have experienced this mode of thinking as a light bulb moment. The easiest and cheapest way to tap into so-called light bulb moments is to meditate regularly. For many people though the thought of meditating each day though seems like an anathema in their modern day lives. How can you waste 20-30 minutes of an already busy day?

In actual fact regular meditation makes the rest of your day go so well that you can save hours of time and it has been proven to extend life expectancy too. You will get the time invested back in spade fulls.

That said, many people have trouble getting their mind to be quiet and might not know when they are actually in a deep meditative state. This is where using a  Meditation Machine comes in.

Using a progressive programme of gentle exercises, the user is taken into deeper and deeper states from waking beta to relaxing alpha and deeper theta induction.

In the latter state, where the brain is in theta, the mind is connected with the collective consciousness and creativity just flows.

“Using these techniques, I have got students to come up with the most amazing titles for their books and to get whole chapters as a complete vision in one session,” says Tom. “The resulting productivity is amazing.”

Writer’s block becomes a thing of the past and associated fears of rejection and unworthiness seem to dissipate like magic too as a bonus. Getting better sleep and other health benefits make it a no-brainer.

While it is common for most meditation to occur with eyes closed, the Mind Spa machine also allows you to enter the meditative state with your eyes open. This equivalent state is one you can enter while out walking – but you can be working at your computer at the time on your best seller.

“The brilliant thing about meditation machines is that you can use them at any time during the day for a quick top up or injection of inspiration,” says Tom, “and they are useful for experienced and non-experienced meditators.”

Using a Meditation Machine to aid creativity

Before I started meditating, I thought it was a waste of time. As a busy person, I couldn’t afford to waste even 10 minutes during a day. Now I’ve been doing it for nearly 2 years, I feel I can’t afford not to do it – the benefits to my health, my demeanour AND my creativity are just immense.

Personally, I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to meditation and I had a great teacher who showed me some really easy breathing and mind control techniques. I realise that not everyone finds it easy to go into a meditative state, although anyone who is engrossed in a film or Coronation Street has experienced one. If you ever got home in your car and couldn’t remember your journey, you have been in some sort of trance.

If you find meditation hard, then help is on hand. A good friend of The Bookwright, Ivor Murray of Meditations UK supplies a marvellous range of meditation machines.

Mind SpaI’ve got a Mind Spa machine and find it really useful if I ever need an extra boost of creativity – OR if we have house guests and I need to block out external noise !

If you are starting to write a book, or any creative process, then I highly recommend it.

Apart from its benefits from a generative perspective, it is good for reducing stress, insomnia and even helping with other medical conditions such as blood pressure (don’t stop taking the pills though without consulting your doctor)

You can get hold of a machine with a cast iron 30 day money back scheme so what’s to lose ???
