This exercise can be very powerful in unlocking your imagination and getting your creativity flowing.
Music is considered to be very therapeutic. For this activity it is best to find music that is either very relaxing or classical in genre, does not have lyrics, and if possible, one you have not listened to before. Find a quiet place that you will not get disturbed, dim the lights, and relax. As you listen to it ask yourself what is it the music is telling you. Every song can have a story to tell. What does it feel like, smell like, look like? Is it a love story? Is it a story of magnificent triumphant? Let your imagination soar! When the music is complete take out a notebook and jot down the story it told you.
