Why I wrote the guidebook, Creative Thinking For The 21rst Century, An Experiential Guidebook
The book I wrote, How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head Under My Skin And Changed The Way I Think About Thinking, A Creative Thinking Blueprint For The 21st Century was the description of my research into the world of “manifestation” (how things come into being). It came about as a result of a health and emotional crisis. Years later I decided to report about my own journey of experimentation from this perspective as I felt it could be useful for life’s big decision making. There are numerous self-help books but it is always refreshing to hear about how things have gone for the author first hand, rather than just their writing about other people’s experiences. I had gleaned a great deal from the remarkable people whom I had met and the experiences I had consciously undertaken. Had I had the same kind of simple primer regarding what to think about, intuition and manifestation concepts as put forth in this guidebook perhaps I could have eliminated years of anxiety and embraced fewer bumps and scrapes along the way. Why?
Using my own journey examples I teamed up with psychiatrist, Kerry Monick, MD, who shared part of my adventure to write Creative Thinking For The 21rst Century, An Experiential Guidebook. We decided to concentrate on a few key ideas not the least of which is what people choose to think about. Being smart is one thing, but choosing where to put one’s attention, and why, opens up an entirely different framework. To put things more into perspective: We seem to be rushing headlong into a watershed of epic proportions: Societies are facing unprecedented challenges. Technology is compressing our sense of time at a bewildering pace. The luxury of thinking time is vanishing. Fragile world economies, a challenged environment and dysfunctional governments are facing us. The news media is filled with experts rendering sound bites on diametrically opposing viewpoints. We are on information overload resulting in a kind of psychic numbing. Depending entirely on our linear thinking patterns to guide our daily lives no longer works like it once did.
So, what do we do? In this sense we must all become cartographers, learning to map the nature of our intuitive world, observing how thinking with intention seems to work, and how to best use and trust these processes. In this short guidebook we explore the idea of a conscious connection with other realms where co-partners through synchronicities and perhaps our sudden flashes of insight or intuition reflect the communication of these co-partners. The guidebook concisely addresses tips on not just how to think but suggests what to think about, with ideas for overcoming fears, and strategies for understanding and using our intuition. We suggest that the ultimate goal is to arrive at that state called “Flow,” where we balance our intuitive information with our analytical brain in a state of fluidity as events of life appear on our radar screen. We hope this little brief guidebook can make a difference in your life. It is available on Amazon and Kindle.
