Have you ever wondered where songwriters, poets, sculptors and artists come up with new ideas? How do inventors create concepts that morph into Smart Phones, miniature drones and ocean liners? Who dreams up a screenplay for a movie or the design for a new automobile?

You may want to summit a 14,000 foot peak in the Colorado Rockies. You may want to compete in a triathlon. You may want to create a painting. You may want to write a book. You may choose endless possibilities to fulfill your life. Use your subconscious mind to take you to your dreams.

Answer: ideas evolved out of their subconscious minds!

Human creativity starts with you. It features you. It flows through you. It starts with the sprinkling of ideas that race through the Universe like a "neutrino" shower of thoughts.

Have you ever seen an Indian "Dream Catcher"? It's made out of willow hoops wrapped in leather with sinew threads that "spider web" across the middle of the hoop. Those webs "catch" bad dreams and only let in good thoughts. One dream catcher hangs above my computer. I use it daily.

You ask, "Yeah, that sounds great on paper, but how do I harness those thoughts and create something useful. How do I write the next All-American novel? How to I turn my ideas into making a living like Taylor Swift who writes songs or writers like Stephen King who scare us to death with his horror novels? How does Danielle Steele come up with those incredible plots in her books?

How does Nicholas Sparks write a romance novel like Notebook or John Grisham write gripping legal-lawyer thriller suspence books?

They pull from the same creative energy of the universe as you may harness for yourself. They engaged their subconscious minds in order to come up with ideas that worked for their particular passions.

Let's say you love to write. You want to become a best selling author. Or, you simply love to express yourself in a journal! Perhaps you want to write a song that you sell to a particular country-singing star like Dolly Parton or Blake Shelton. Or, you might want to start out writing songs and singing them at a local honky-tonk like Taylor Swift.

Before going to sleep each night, the great writer Robert Louis Stevenson tasked his mind to present him with new literary plots while he slept. During the night, his subconscious mind "worked" out new fictional ideas. He jotted them down in the morning.

America's most famous writer, Mark Twain, when asked near the end of his life where he came up with all his books and satire, he said, "My ideas came from my ability to tap into the inexhaustible reservoir of my subconscious mind."

Please appreciate that 90 percent of your mind operates in your subconscious. While you may sleep at night, your subconscious mind works in overdrive. You average seven dreams a night. Your mind loves to play with ideas.

You may direct those dreams, ideas and words to inventions, songs and art work.

Depending on what drives you toward your destiny, you may direct your subconscious mind to work for you.

For example, at the end of your school day, work day or however you spend your time, you generally "play" at something that makes you happy. It could be stamp collecting, weaving macrame or pottery. You may like to help children in an after-school class. Whatever your deepest passions, you may utilize the same processes that Einstein, Mozart and Thomas Jefferson used to enhance humanity.

Of course, you may not become famous for your efforts, but the key remains--you fulfill your calling. Please understand that great people pursued their passions with no idea or concern for becoming rich or famous. They busied themselves with a task they created.
