‘The creative process is argumentative, even if it’s just with yourself.’
Paul Holmes – CEO of the Holmes Group
When you spend time alone you have more ‘private speech’ or talking to yourself. It makes you notice your surroundings and can trigger your subconscious mind into greater conscious activity.
People joke that talking to themselves is the first sign of madness. This is to completely miss the point. Talking to yourself, asking yourself questions and answering them is a sign of engaging with your sleeping genius – your unconscious. The more you practice this the stronger your relationship will become with it.
Each time you talk to yourself you invite your unconscious to offer up its intelligence to you. When you get the right answer you may notice it in your solar plexus (your gut feeling), your body may fizz or you may notice a change in temperature either up or down.
