7 commonalities between creativity and spirituality

Have you noticed this? There is a powerful correlation between spirituality and creativity. The more I speak with artists and other highly creative individuals the more I see the commonalities.

When you engage creatives in a deeper conversation as to the source of their creativity, the conversation tends to go quasi-mystical. It’s a creative flow experience, often spurred by the same things that spur a sense of spiritual union.

Seven of these enhancers for both creativity and spirituality are:

  • solitude
  • contemplation
  • focus
  • surrender to the process
  • suspension of judgment
  • love (of the work; of the issue)
  • lightheartedness
