Jennifer Blaine et al

Join us for the first part of our podcast interview with the very talented actress and playwright, Jennifer Blaine, and one of her many alter-egos, the delightful Dr. Amir, as the three of us discuss ways to tap into one's creative imagination.  

A resident of Philadelphia, Jennifer has opened for George Carlin and performed with Chris Rock and Joe Piscopo.  According to The Philadelphia Daily News, "Not even 'Sybil' can compete with Blaine's cast of characters.  Her comic genius [compares to that of] Lily Tomlin and Tracey Ullman."

Some of the tools recommended by Jennifer and Dr. Amir:

  1. Repeat "hmmmm," as in "I wonder…" as a means of helping the synapses between the "right" and "left" hemispheres of the brain to connect.
  2. Consciously breath deeply and steadily, as with meditation, and contemplate or take in the thought: "What is it that I want to create or express?"  Then, without pressure, wait silently and patiently for the answers to emerge.
  3. See yourself as a creative being.  If we only tell ourselves and others that we are not very creative, that only serves to shut the doors to what might otherwise emerge. 
  4. Look for and appreciate creativity and beauty around you and within.  What we focus on becomes more apparent and abundant.
  5. Especially when you are feeling stuck, move your arms, legs, and neck around in a playful,
    loose way with "Creative Joint Play," either with or without music.  This exercise moves energy around your body while helping your mind to loosen up, allowing ideas to emerge.

Wonderful! I so enjoyed the interview with both Jennifer Blaine and Dr. Amir. It was so inspiring that right now I am going to put on some of my favorite music and starting doing my own version of the Creative Joint Play, which I am going to call my "Happy Dance!"
