We are conditioned to always ‘be on’. To always be productive. To always be coordinating and creating.

That does not work for me and actually does not work for anyone. We all need to give ourselves time and space. A vacuum. An intentional empty space.

It is not in clutter, noise and chatter that ideas happen. They happen in the void, in the stillness. In this void your subconscious consolidates memories, makes associations and connects seemingly unrelated dots that create unexpected combinations.

Einstein wisely said ‘Sometimes the subconscious mind manifests a wisdom several steps or even years ahead of the conscious mind, and has its own was of leading us toward our destiny!. It is how Korroboree took shape. I gave my subconscious mind the ‘what’ I wanted to create and ‘why’ and in the stillness came the ‘how.
