Do you have a story to tell?
Are you a writer suffering from writer's block?
Anyone can write!
I’ve been writing since I was a teenager, starting with my diaries (which I still have – they are embarrassingly comical) and eventually writing short stories. I always wanted to write a book but could never get myself organized. Then came the pandemic. The quiet, the great pause. And my book just came together. I wrote feverishly, weaving things together.
A lot of the writing in my book came from my own dreams, meditations, and reflective journaling. The one-eyed man, Adam and Eve, and other stories in my book came to me during meditation and dreams. For a long time, I had no idea where I was going with my book, but then everything just literally came together.
The main method I use to create is reflective journaling. The process involves taking note of not only my thoughts and feelings, like traditional journaling, but also noting things that may at first seem mundane.
Those birds that come to your feeder in the morning – is there something unique about them? Their colors? Their birdsong? If they could talk, what would they tell you?
Chronicling your dreams and your experiences during meditation is also key. Dreams come from our subconscious, your soul, and if we start to pay attention to them, we can pull many messages from them that we can use in our writing. Meditation takes us to similar states as dreams, except we are awake and more likely to remember our thoughts and visions.
Put all of these together, and you can create a story that comes from intuition – from YOU!
Not only will you create through your writing and bring your words out into the world, but you will also gain a better understanding of who you are, by exploring themes such as fear, hope, faith, and love. This understanding can help you heal emotional wounds and live a more positive life.
There are no rules or formulas. You write what feels authentic. What comes from your heart.
