On July 6th, “12 Ways To Effortlessly Command Inspiration — Introduction”, was published.

You can find my intentions for that series, as well as one particular definition of “inspiration”, within that piece.

Right below this introduction, you will find three of the “12 Ways To Effortlessly Command Inspiration”.

My hope is that you try one of these methods — at the very least — and that it allows you to enjoy the limitless gifts of inspiration.

No matter what, though, thank you for reading!

One Blessing, Out Of Many

No matter what anyone tells you, creating blessings is easy.

You can simply appreciate the blessings in front of you and, within the feeling of acknowledgement and inspiration, appreciate the blessings you are choosing to create.

To accomplish this, take a moment to think of some of the ways you are blessed.

You can engage in an inner dialogue, of sorts, that consists of statements such as “I am so blessed to…” and “I am so appreciative of…”.

During this process, allow yourself to appreciate some of the things you desire, as if they are present within your life.

Some of these might be a good job; a healthy, loving relationship; a fun adventure; and, of course, a rich, abundant sense of inspiration, and all that such a thing entails.

Give yourself a moment to appreciate each one of these blessings, to say “Thank You” for them and to them.

You will, by engaging with this practice, bring more blessings into your life.

You will also, of course, become inspired.

Saying when this inspiration will arise, where it will come from, or the form it will take, is not possible.

Or, at least, it isn’t for me, since you are your own unique person.

No matter what, though, you will become inspired.

You will become inspired and enjoy the unending gifts that inspiration offers.

Appreciating The Fruits Of Inspiration

Appreciation is a creative force.

A creative force that can:

  • Conjure New Opportunities
  • Create Wealth
  • Illuminate The Wealth That Already Exists
  • Manifest Love
  • Conjure States Of Being

And so on and so forth; endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Our focal point is that last one, “Conjure States Of Being”.

You can, through the power of appreciation, become inspired.

Or, perhaps, step into the infinite sea of inspiration that exists.

Something along those lines.

To accomplish this, take a moment to appreciate inspiration.

Just appreciate inspiration for what it is: a beautiful creative force.

Right after you appreciate inspiration, take a moment to appreciate the fruits of inspiration.

The fruits of inspiration, such as:

  • Creative Works
  • A Sense Of Flow
  • New Perspectives
  • A Sense Of Bliss
  • New Possibilities
  • A Sense Of Awe
  • A Sense Of Wonder
  • New Concepts/Ideas

And so on and so forth; endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Just take a moment to appreciate the fruits of inspiration.

Right within this moment of appreciation, allow yourself to appreciate being inspired right now.

Even if you aren’t inspired, appreciate the inspiration you would like to experience, as if it is occurring right now.

You can then appreciate the intended fruits of this inspiration — a new story, for example — as if you are experiencing them right now.

The act of deeply appreciating inspiration will allow you to become inspired.

You may not become inspired right away. But, soon enough, you will become inspired.

Remembering When You Were Inspired

I remember when I was inspired.

I remember when the idea of writing this essay came to me.

I remember when a new perspective on “inspiration” arose.

I remember when this perspective inspired a sense of awe within me.

I remember when I wrote a list of ways you can conjure inspiration with ease.

I remember when I created an outline for this essay series.

I remember when I wrote the first part of the series.

I remember when I wrote the second part.

And so on and so forth.

Each one of those sentences is a memory.

A memory that culminates in a story.

A story of becoming inspired and allowing this inspiration to guide me.

To guide me in a way that led to the creation of something actionable.

Each one of these memories is “real”.

And, within each one of these memories, there are real feelings.

You can use your imagination to conjure real feelings.

Real feelings that lead to what it is that you desire.

You can use your imagination to create memories that are imbued with real feelings.

Stepping into these memories, and the feelings they contain, can bring your desires to life.

Or, in this case, inspiration.

To accomplish this, allow yourself to “Remember When” you were inspired.

You can use a real memory to inspire this process.

Or, you can create memories that have not, in fact, happened.

No matter what, though, begin with “I Remember When…”

And, perhaps, the next bit is “I Was Inspired”.

Or, perhaps, the next bit is something else.

You can use the story at the start of this section as inspiration.

Regardless of that, allow yourself to tell a story about being inspired.

A story about being inspired, experiencing this inspiration, what this inspiration led to; and so on and so forth.

No matter what, focus not only on being inspired, and the beauty of that inspiration, but what this inspiration led to.

You can focus on anything, with regards to that last part. But, make sure you allow yourself to appreciate it and to experience it, with your imagination, in a rich, feeling manner.

Just as with the other practices in this guide, you will become inspired.

You may not become inspired immediately, but you will become inspired.


Inspiration is easy and becoming inspired is easy.

All you must do is feel as if you are, or were, inspired.

You must feel this with a sense of intensity and vividity.

The act of doing so will allow you to become inspired.

Regardless of that, though, thank you so much for reading!
