The last 7 months have been a massive reality check for me with regard to the sheer volume of time, energy and work that is required to see a book through from manuscript completion to successful publication!
For most of that time, my daily practice of yoga, meditation and more has enabled me to be present to what ‘is’ and connected to inner stillness amidst the array of outer activities, all of which involved absolute deadlines.
Yet the more fatigued I felt, the harder it became to maintain the fullness of my balanced perspective; until finally, the moment came when all the major projects were completed and I was able to stop.
Taking a week off to recharge was a timely immersion in the bliss of stillness, silence and space, and subsequently prompted me to write a short piece to share my experience and encourage you to remember the importance of what I lovingly call a conscious and creative reboot!
Here it is…

‘When we align all aspects of ourselves
with the same frequency as our soul,
we live truthfully, write deeply
and know that it’s all a sacred prayer.’ (i)
Conscious Writers make it a priority to relax and energize the physical body, open up positive emotion, clear space in the mind and connect with greater awareness beyond the everyday self as a preparation for soul-inspired writing.
To your conscious & creative success!

Julia McCutchen interviews Richard Barrett
on Thursday 8th October
Richard Barrett began his writing career in 1995 and has been writing full time since 2009. He has published a new book each year and plans to continue this rhythm through to 2017. He puts his strong and sustained outburst of creativity down to one single factor—alignment with the motivations of his soul.
In this interview Richard will explain the spiritual/psychological dimensions of creative writing and you’ll learn how to reconnect with your creativity by embracing your soul through understanding:
- The seven stages of psychological development;
- The influence of ego soul-dynamics on creativity and flow;
- What prevents you from accessing your creativity;
- What you need to do to get into alignment with the creative impulse of your soul;
- How to get and stay in flow.
Richard Barrett is an author, speaker and internationally recognised thought leader on the evolution of human values in business and society. He is the founder and chairman of the Barrett Values Centre, a Fellow of the World Business Academy, an Advisory Board Member of the Centre for Integral Wisdom, Honorary Board Member of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, and Former Values Coordinator at the World Bank.

It’s the autumn equinox today here in the northern hemisphere, the first day of autumn before the darkness of winter leads into the rebirth of spring. The equinox is a time when there is a natural balance between day and night, light and dark.
Paying attention to what is happening all around us as the trees begin to shed their leaves and the seeds that were planted in spring reach maturity provides us with an opportunity as Conscious Writers. Nature shows us the way as the cycle of life, death and rebirth is an elegant metaphor for the creative process.
So this is a perfect moment to pause and take stock of where we are in relation to harvesting the fruits of our creative endeavours. It’s also an opportunity to reflect on the bigger picture of the meaning of life and its fragility. The cooler weather conditions favour slowing down after the exuberance of summer and taking time for introspection.
What insights can we gain from connecting with the energy of the equinox and observing the wheel of life as it continues to turn?
