Maybe you were sitting at your desk, doing your usual work, but your mind went blank and you started dreaming about other things — Maybe you started thinking about trees, or the new car you just bought, or the funny look on your seven-year-old child’s face. while he was eating broccoli you told him to eat.


The dizziness we all do is normal and it has been going on as we all, out of the ocean, started to grow our brains. What happens to this flood is your perception: Is that kind of thinking good or bad? Many times it seems like dreaming because, oh, oh, oh, we’re out of our job and now we have to go back, Uh, where have I been? How confusing!

Do you believe in your brain? Most of us have no idea what is going on in our heads. We respond to certain responses that improve our daily lives — i.e. get up early, have a cup of coffee, talk to your wife, and children, run for a bus ride, or get in the car and go to work. Most of us do this automatically and are very good at it. We work well in our jobs and we are in that part of our brain that controls our lives for the most part — our safety at work, the way we protect ourselves and our families. It’s really nice – though, what about flooding? Why do we flood and why?


In an old self-help book, “The Traits of the Most Successful People,” Steven Covey writes about Victor Frankl who faced horrific things in a German prison, including his parents, brother, and wife being sent to a gas oven. To keep his mind active, Frank was immersed in various situations, often explaining to students who were thinking what he was learning about the abuse he was experiencing. Frank became an inspiration to those around him. Using memory and thinking he revealed himself above his worst and created inner freedom that would help him survive and ultimately help others.


Recently, an art student told me to teach her how to “drift and dream.” I asked her to expand on this as she smiled and felt happy about it. He said, “Well, in your drawing you asked us to cast a shadow over our painting and I remember that you did overshadow our paintings! I went into it, as did all of us, and found that I was on a journey to a new place there. drawing, I got calm. It seemed like I was just floating and doing. ” Some students came in, saying that they too felt the same way about doing the long stitching.


As with meditation and other mental states, my taking on what my students are experiencing is mapping the journey to another part of our brain with intelligence. As painting (or drawing or any creative activity) progresses, reaching this stage of thinking is enabling the creative resources we are all endowed with. To me, as an art teacher, this place is very important. This is where the art learning process begins, expands, and enriches.

As I have learned from my students, many of whom are accountants, financial coordinators, teachers, the disabled, autistic, and dyslexic, we still need to integrate the creative part of our brain to enrich our lives to the fullest. Their comments about meeting and using that part of their brain, from creative experiences to enriching life-changing experiences.

They have encountered a rich vein of thought that moves them to research their feelings,dreaming, and express themselves in personal and encouraging ways guided by an accurate belief in the mental capacity they did not know they had.

Many inventions come from this part of the brain, many stimuli, epiphanies, and goals for future development. So keep dreaming, dream well and take your dreams seriously. You have one moment of life and in that moment of life, if you listen to that inner voice of the dream and make trust that inner desire calls you to think differently about where you are, who you are, what you are, dreaming will begin to work to improve. the very fabric of your presence.


Check it out. Examine that dream and see what it reveals as you descend into the depths of that part of your brain. We are not talking about revenge, anger, or hatred.

To this day I regularly receive emails from this student I had years ago. He applied for a fine arts school, was accepted, and now holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. As a recent graduate, he will begin his career as an art coach.
