Shibari for Inspiration

Shibari for Inspiration

I have the greatest job on earth: they pay me to be creative. My ideas are worth money, and everything I have, I owe to my imagination. I work in an advertising agency, and, if I wanted to, I could get a job in another one, and they would pay twice my current salary. But I’m happy here for the moment, so I’m not going anywhere. Little did I know I was going to use Shibari for inspiration.

The problem is that I have to come up with new ideas every single day. And they have to be good, because you’re only as good as your latest idea. To make things even worse, sometimes I feel exhausted, and I don’t have time to rest. Many people would like my job, so I have to keep working, no matter what.

My worst nightmare, of course, is being short of ideas. The mere idea is so terrifying, that most creatives would do anything to make sure they don’t run out of them. Some people do drugs, others work out furiously. Now, I want to stay away from drugs as much as I can, but exercise is just not an option for me. That’s where Shibari comes into the picture.

I believe there is this weird relationship between the body and the mind: the more one works, the less the other does. So, when I need my imagination to work at its full powers, I tie myself and let my imagination wander. Boy, you don’t know the trips I have taken that way! It is a ticket to a world of endless ideas, one more original and wilder than the previous one. After an hour, I slowly untie myself and worry no more, for I know that I can come up with exactly what my clients want. I just hope I can jot all of them down without forgetting them.

And that’s how I use Shibari for inspiration.

This is my Shibari story.
