Thanks for making the time to take the What’s Your Hidden Creativity Potential? Quiz.
Because with this information you are on your way to reconnecting with hidden creativity that right now you don’t know (or remember) you have, and to enriching what’s possible for you in an already very creative life.
Hi - I'm Jan Cross, Creator & Guide at Extraordinary Mind Project, and creator of this assessment
Over the past three decades, as I’ve helped literally thousands of people reconnect with hidden creativity, and transform what’s possible for them, I have found that six factors are essential.
And that led me down the path of creating this assessment, so you can get instant insights into how to have creativity flow ever more deeply and expressively through your life.
So let’s get to your results!
Based on the information you’ve shared and the little I know about you and your situation, the “Hidden Creativity Potential” category that best describes you is what’s known as “More Magic".
What it means is you know yourself as a creative person and you rightly feel proud of the fact that you apply your creativity in many ways and situations in your day-to-day life. And are well known for it!
You are likely also very ‘crafty’ and gain a lot of enjoyment from that.
When you can, you do ‘proper art’ (painting, drawing, music, writing, for example) . . . at least partly because it gives you the feeling of coming home to who you really are?
Or maybe ‘proper art’ was before life got in the way!
Either way, you strongly suspect that there’s much more to you and your creativity than you have experienced to date.
You are an adventurer!
And you are restless to know what latent talents you might have and what more is possible in your life!
Chances are that you have an interest in personal growth work as a way of exploring more of your potential.
Whether purely intuitively and/or through curious observation you have obviously developed some pretty reliable ways of tapping your creativity, for it to be flowing through your life as it already is.
You know the importance of sometimes just ‘getting out of the way’ of your brilliant new connection-making subconscious mind.
No surprise! Neuroscience has recently found that daydreaming, awe and wonder experiences, the flow state, and imagination all use the same brain networks.
So, if in your busy life you haven’t already done so, give yourself permission to
They are creative states!
That said, there are likely times when you have caught tantalising, frustrating glimpses of talent and ease that you would love to be able to easily tune in to.
Or times when some aspect of you life feels stuck or at a standstill and you're not your usual resourceful self. Also frustrating. Yes?
Or times when, even though in general life is good, you feel there’s something missing.
Your hidden creativity calling?
Or times when reconnecting with favourite creative pastimes that you enjoyed so much in your younger years now seems beyond possible – try as you might!
It is hard to reconnect with hidden creativity, to find your way home!
The most common reason for this – and the most unknown - is on a practical brain mechanics level.
Let me explain….
In practical terms, from our outsider/owner’s point of view, our brain is designed with two very important functions on the subconscious level that happen to be in opposition.
1 ONE FUNCTION is to take you safely through your day by matching incoming data against the patterning of your past experience. It very efficiently has you repeat what you already know – in fact, automatically, instantly and perfectly.
So if, for example, you are a stickman level drawer and you have a piece of paper, a pencil, and a subject to hand, your brain knows exactly what’s required . . . stickman level drawing!
It will have you do it perfectly, and continue to do so, unless and until you find out how to intercept patterns that are holding you hostage in stickman level.
In fact, it repeats past patterning so well that it can leave you believing that it’s the whole picture of what’s possible, or not, for you to achieve and be.
And this is the biggest mistake that people make: to believe this!
Of these two subconscious functions, this past-based one is dominant and so you can see how easy it is to
2 THE OTHER SUBCONSCIOUS FUNCTION being, of course, your creativity!
Your ‘born to explore’, breaking out ability!
Examples of what becomes possible in a matter of hours, not weeks or years:
Note: Improving your drawing ability out of sight is a perfect context for learning how to access all hidden creativity . . . so that you are then free to go ahead and have any area of your life lit up with more creativity!
In an open to ”More Magic” world such as yours, the biggest secret to limitless unfolding of creativity is ‘at will’ access to the deepest, most hidden, reaches of it.
To where the most magic and mystery and expressive power is and can be counted on for endless eye-opening surprises.
What would it be like if your next big surprise was an unexpected ‘stop you in your tracks’ experience of the awe and wonder of you?
To be astonished by what you have done?
“I know it was me, because I was here!”
(This is not ‘woo woo’. It feels like you didn’t do the work because on the conscious level you didn’t! You got into flow state energy and ‘out of the way’ of your creative subconscious’ brilliant new-connection-making.)
We’re going for creativity unfolding on tap!
For this to happen, more practical information about the mechanics of your brain, and how to work with it, is beyond beneficial.
Happily, there is now a practical and fast small step-by-small step – and this is the important bit – brain-aware path to take to your patiently waiting hidden creativity and its surprises!
Here’s what you can do almost immediately to start opening a deeper connection with it than adults usually can.
No matter how creative you are accustomed to being and doing, can you stop yourself in your patterned belief tracks for a moment and stand ….. open to the thought that:
The truth is: your creativity is limitless.
Because, as you know, the essence of the creative flow state is to lose all sense of self, to transcend your identity and its limiting opinions and expectations, and to come out surprised, seeing yourself and what you can do in a new light!
Note: exponential unfolding is the norm.
A simple idea: creativity is a choice!
Just keep actively choosing the new, choosing to explore, choosing curiosity,
Because your subconscious brain - it's designed that way - will keep you efficiently repeating your whole life pretty much as you know it.
Including, perhaps, leaving you with that 'something's missing' sense, and definitely hampering you being as creative as you sense you deep down want to be.
Happily, we're also designed, especially made, for creativity!
But you have to choose it!
The simple actions mentioned above – choosing to be open to the idea of limitless creativity within you, and choosing creativity often – underlie the success of this plan.
The following 6 elements are hugely powerful when it comes to finding your true potential – especially when each is understood from a new, brain-aware perspective.
Becoming an impartial observer - gives freedom from assumptions about what is and is not possible for you
PLUS leads to a naturally toned down inner- critic,
PLUS gives you the ability to easily see ‘problem patterns’ as they arise (during your numerous creativity adventures!) and so be able to slip right past them.
(When you are in a pattern it is often so hard to see it.)
It's astonishingly fast and easy to get results!
So you might be asking … OK, so that's cool. But how is it possible to slip ALL SIX of these elements into an already busy life?
And to do it without going crazy and without it taking over your entire life?
Well, I’ve got some good news for you and it’s this . . .
This is what I do all day, every day . . . I help people tune into the creativity networks of the brain more deliberately and deeply than adults usually can.
And in a few short hours you get to astonish yourself with even more potential than you have ever suspected you might have.
You see yourself, and what’s possible for you, in a whole new light. No matter your present level.
“I feel I can do anything. I really do!”
You have proof! And you know how you did it!
And straight away ideas start surfacing . . .
This is perfect for a “More Magic” life such as yours, with ever more creativity, meaning, and joy rising to the surface.
Access to all the creativity you could possibly need for whatever you choose is through the unique approach and information of Your Extraordinary Mind – The Brain-Aware Way.
