indigo2Many people, including ourselves, find that they feel a need to write, maybe to publish a book or an article in which they can tell and share their thoughts and experiences with others – in our case, we were blessed to  publish our own book a year ago.

We all have in us a sort of “editor” big or small or perhaps you would call it a “judge” or “censor”. That which tells us what is ok and not ok, that helps us decide what is right and what is wrong, what we should say now, and how to behave in every situation. And maybe, it doesn’t always help us.

Maybe when we give it center stage, it blocks our creativity, our spontaneity, spunk and spirit. So how do we limit its presence and allow other parts some more stage time? How do we divide our attention between all of the “roles” inside us in a way that will allow us to flow? And maybe the answer to this lies in the question itself.

A good way we found is to practice, to repeat the action consistently until the change is made. And if it is writing we are dealing with, this means writing for at least 30 minutes a day and practicing focusing on the pen or writing hand, or letters of the keyboard, or the breath coming out and in through our nose, anything that could distract our attention from the content, the writing and the “editor”. To release and allow ourselves to write whatever pops up in our head, without deciding on the subject beforehand.

When you get stuck it’s recommended to go back to the first line, because that allows opening new routes (confusing the “editor”). You can put in a few comments like “I’m finding this hard right now”, “I’ve nothing to write”, or “I want to stop” to release resistance during the process. It’s recommended to do the same when “editor” remarks pop up, such as “this is so silly”, “I am so ridiculous” and ” who ever said I could write?” etc. This way, you are giving this voice a temporary stage that usually quiets it. Most of all it is important to remember that change does not happen in a moment, and if we have lived with this character inside us till now, for so long, there is no reason that we should be able to erase it in one day.

purple4“From practice shall come faith”. This is a sentence we heard in a spiritual awareness course we took together a few years ago and really connected to. From our experience, this sentence really works. The more you practice writing, as in everything else, the more the change is brought about. The more you write, the more your focusing ability will grow, your points of view will expand and you will become aware of a special feeling during writing. When you allow the pen to write as if by itself, or the keyboard keys to run on their own it’s like someone else is sitting there and writing from within you and the sensation is that of floating.

In conclusion, writing is a process of practice, and just like you can’t shape your body through talking about fitness, but need to exercise, such is the case with writing. To write a book, it is not enough to think about it! You need to start to write…

We recommend to practice intuitive writing. It is a sort of writing that allows a flowing and reception of messages beyond what we are familiar with. It is possible to converse with the spiritual guides, to receive answers for rising questions, and to strengthen confidence in our way.

A recommended exercise in intuitive writing:
Answer five questions: what made me happy today? What made me feel uncomfortable? What do I want to change? What is the next step I must take? How can I be of service? And then let the pen write “on its own” on the page. Focus on the ballpoint that is writing and not on what you are writing, and notice the change in handwriting, and in the way of writing which changes from me to you with time. Write no less than three folio pages each time. If this is difficult, start from ten minutes, and raise the amount of time gradually. Practice this at least three times a week and remember that through practice faith will come too.

(More guidance can be found in the books: Gift for the soul by Dawn E. Clark, Spiritual Growth: Being Your Higher Self by Sanaya Roman, Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain , Leadership For Everyone With Robin Sharma – Practice 6 – Self  Leadership).

We would be happy to hear reactions and reinforcements from those of you who actually dared and tried the process of writing.
