Inspiration is limitless.

No matter the “amount” — quantifying such things is rather difficult — of inspiration you enjoy, a vast and infinite abundance will remain.

Inspiration is given freely.

You can, with the proper technique, become inspired with ease.

No matter the number of times you engage with such techniques, or what it is that these techniques bring forth, you can always be inspired.

You will, by reading this series, learn twelve techniques you can use to become inspired with ease.

What Is Inspiration?

The definition of “inspiration” is, according to Google, “the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.”

Or, alternatively, “a sudden brilliant, creative, or timely idea.”

Each one of these definitions is valid.

To me, though, inspiration is far more than what those two definitions evoke.

Rather, inspiration is a feeling akin to awe and bliss, wonder and curiosity, flow and abundance, excitement and passion; and so on and so forth.

Inspiration is a force that empowers and strengthens.

A force that empowers, strengthens, and, perhaps, illuminates.

Within those moments of being inspired, and all that such moments contain, a delightful abundance of possibilities arise with remarkable joy and ease.

Some of these possiblities include:

  • The Essay You Are Reading
  • Many Of The Essays On This Blog
  • Many Of My Stories
  • A Variety Of Different Concepts/Notions That Continue To Resonate
  • My Decision To Travel
  • A Plethora Of Recent Adventures

And so on and so forth.

Each one of these is, in and of itself, of great value.

Yet, without inspiration, and the infinite permutations and fruits of this grand force, none of those experiences, or the gifts they led to, would have arisen within my life

For this reason, the act of being inspired is of great importance.

Or, more specifically, the act of being able to bring inspiration into our experience, with ease, is of great importance.

For, within inspiration, lies what we need to live the life we wish to live and are meant to live.

Our Methodology

Every single method within this series is rooted in two key notions:

  • You Are Connected To Something Greater
  • You Can, With Your Imagination, Feel Inspired, And You Will Become Inspired

Right outside of those two notions, there’s another notion:

  • Sometimes, You Just Need To Let Go And Know That It’s Done

Each one of these notions has served me well.

My hope is that these notions, when put into practice series, serve you, as well.

Even more than that, my hope is that these methods — a few of them, at the very least — allow you to become inspired with ease.

For some of you, though, that may not be the case.

No matter what, though, please engage with the methods that resonate with you.

Please engage with these methods, so that you can determine if they work for you.

If they do, then that’s great!

But, if they don’t, my apologies.


Inspiration is essential to a healthy, abundant life.

You will, by engaging with the twelve methods outlined in the next three parts of this series, learn how to conjure inspiration on command.

My hope is that these methods resonate with you and, most importantly, work for you.
