For many grown-ups, imagination doesn’t come easily. It’s a skill we used as kids when we were creating elaborate worlds for our dolls or battling in open fields with our friends as cowboys and Indians.

25 Imaginative Meditations to Spark your Creativity” is a collection of exercises that will help strengthen the part of your brain that needs some encouragement to come out and play—your imagination. With each meditation you will be dropped into a scene where you are the protagonist. As you freely explore your imagination, you can encourage a sense of play, overcome mental blocks and inspire your creative pursuits.

Whether you’re a writer, an artist, or business professional looking to strengthen your creative problem-solving skills, these meditations are for you. This book can also be used in group settings like yoga classes.

Blurb: “Jayne was either dying or going crazy. This is what she thought every time her right hand started hurting. She never suspected it was magic.

Ordinary Jayne grew up with her loving mom and dad in downtown Portland, Oregon. She liked books and movies, and hanging out with her best friend. At school, she stayed camouflaged in the background–careful not to attract the attention of bullies. Life was good and safe. But her very ordinary, plain life changes when her parents are hit in a tragic bicycling accident. She barely has time to breathe before she is whisked away to live with a misfit crew of orphans and a seemingly psychic foster mom. As if her new home wasn’t odd enough, her new neighborhood turns out to be even weirder. It’s here she encounters talking animals, a ghost-witch, and a secret that connects Jayne to all of it.

In search of answers, Jayne and two unlikely friends embark on a journey where she discovers she possesses a strange power. But Jayne must keep her magic hidden for fear of a maniacal, long-lost relative who wants to force her to use her magic for evil.”
