Inspired Thoughts

Inspired Thoughts

We all crave to have that one genius thought.  Something that sets us apart from everyone else.  We beg it to come. We commission it to come, and we are looking all around searching for it because we know we have to find that one thing that resonates with who we are.  It’s just for us.  We can share.  We can loan it. We can expand upon it.  But, out of all of the millions of things in this universe, we want one inspired thought to call our own.

So as we’re looking around we have to wonder, is there any real evidence to where inspired thoughts come from?  Is there a form, a formula or a pattern that we can possess to capture thoughts?

According to Andrea Hannah, there is a 4 step Inspiration Formula.

I encourage you to read her article Here.

In the book, “The New Pycho-Cybernetics,” by Dr. Maxwell Maltz (updated by Dan S. Kennedy), a quote is used from Thomas Edison.  When asked where his genius ideas came from, he stated that they were “In the air,”  and that if he wouldn’t have picked them up someone else would have.

We do see inspiration come from nature, music, art and from others.  Daily there are inspiring ideas, quotes, books, and creative forces all around us.  Now all we have to pick them up, pick them apart, add some spark, and make them our own. Are you up to the challenge?

Tell me where your inspired thoughts come from.

  1. Hi BG,

    Sounds like a great book! I do think inspired thoughts come from “the air” because I get them all the time…maybe too much.

    But as long as we jot them down for later use they won’t be a thought that evades us, but rather one we can build upon.

    1. Hi Donna. I think Psycho-Cybernetics is a great book. I read it so many years ago (like 30) and now
      I’m reading the updated version. I agree we need to jot them down, because they are gone in a flash.
      Thanks so much for commenting.

    1. Hi Miriam… You know that’s so great. It’s good to see where others are inspired. We need all of it to really start the juices flowing. Thanks so much
      for commenting.

  2. Hi BG,
    Psycho- Cybernetics is a great book and I think everybody
    should read it . I get my inspiration most of the time while working or
    walking outside in the nature and I comes from the same source for us all ,it’s the universal mind or the air 🙂 What we get out of it depends on the frequency we are in and the question we ask.
    Thank you for asking and reminding on this book.

    1. Hi Erika, I read this about 30 years ago and now I’m reading it again.
      It’s a great refresher. Nature is great for inspiration… fresh air,
      sweet smells and the beauty of everything all around us. Thanks again.

    1. Hi Monna… they are gone in a flash when not written down. Too many times we miss opportunities
      because we don’t have a pad and pen in hand. Thanks Monna.

  3. I’d love to know, BG, where inspiration comes from, but I rather agree that “in the air” makes as much sense as anything to me.

    However, in order to find that inspiration, I need to “stir up” the air. I do that by just diving in to a project and getting it started, even if I have very little idea what I’m doing or where I’m heading. Eventually, the inspiration comes floating by and the project starts taking shape.

    1. Hi David. I think it’s in the air also…that’s amazing how you can take it and develop it. I see it come from other’s as well. You read something, like someone’s blog and one sentence will give you inspiration about something of you own. Thanks for commenting, David.

  4. Hi BG. My inspired thoughts come mostly from the Bible. So many times when the most significant things have happened to me, it’s a scripture verse that has come to me, and stayed with me ever since. If I have *one* inspired thought that is my own, that’s where it comes from. (Isaiah 61:3… beauty for ashes)

    I also get such thoughts from good books I’m reading. I really should read with an open notebook beside me so I can jot those thoughts down!

    1. Hi Willena, I agree scripture is a great place for inspiration… I like Isaiah also.. one of my favorites
      is Isaiah 60:1 “Rise, shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.”
      Truly scripture inspires me also. Thanks for commenting.
