5 Reasons to Write a Letter You Don’t Send

November 13, 2018

Free writing in a journal has played a significant role on and off for most of my life so I know just how beneficial it is for processing thoughts and feelings, clearing internal space, and more.

My personal experience led me to include Conscious Journaling in my professional work as one of the foundational practices of Conscious Writing.

Yet it wasn’t until relatively recently that I discovered a magnificent array of journal techniques to suit all types of people in all sorts of situations.

Journal Therapy

Kathleen (Kay) Adams is a psychotherapist who specializes in “helping people use personal writing – journals, diaries, poetry, memoirs, and stories – as a pathway to deeper self-understanding.”(*)

She calls this “journal therapy” which she defines as “the purposeful and intentional use of life-based writing to further [desired] outcomes.”(*) It’s an approach she’s been using professionally since 1985.

In 1998, Adams combined a continuum of journal therapy techniques that she’d been using successfully with her patients into one model she called the Journal Ladder.

5 Reasons to Write a Letter You Don’t Send

September 6, 2018

Free writing in a journal has played a significant role on and off for most of my life so I know just how beneficial it is for processing thoughts and feelings, clearing internal space, and more.

My personal experience led me to include Conscious Journaling in my professional work as one of the foundational practices of Conscious Writing.

Kathleen (Kay) Adams is a psychotherapist who specializes in “helping people use personal writing – journals, diaries, poetry, memoirs, and stories – as a pathway to deeper self-understanding.”(*)

She calls this “journal therapy” which she defines as “the purposeful and intentional use of life-based writing to further [desired] outcomes.”(*) It’s an approach she’s been using professionally since 1985.

Her work was originally informed by Dr. James Pennebaker who conducted and published research on the relationship between emotional release writing and improved physiological and psychological functioning.

The Journal Ladder

In 1998, Adams combined a continuum of journal therapy techniques that she’d been using successfully with her patients into one model she called the Journal Ladder.

It presents 14 different journal writing options that range from highly structured to completely open in order to help people organize, pace and contain their writing.

The reality is that free writing doesn’t suit all situations, so the Journal Ladder enables everyone to enjoy the proven therapeutic benefits of journal writing and the boost it gives to creativity.

I love the way that writing serves such a broad spectrum of purposes and feel inspired to share some of these tools with you

The Power of Ritual

February 8, 2018

The 1 February was the festival of Imbolc, one of the cornerstones of the Celtic Calendar.

Traditionally, as the store of winter provisions started to run out, Imbolc was a time for performing rituals to harness divine energy and ensure the availability of food to see everyone through till the autumn harvest.

Fires would be lit to celebrate the steadily increasing strength of the sun as well as the powers of Brigid, the Goddess of fire, healing and fertility.

Conscious Actions Performed Mindfully

One of the aspects I love about such time-honoured festivals relates to the power of ritual and the immensely positive impact of conscious actions performed mindfully.

Rituals set things apart from the everyday and have the potential to transform your experience from the mundane to the sacred.

Shift Your State of Consciou sness

Whether they’re short and simple or lengthy and elaborate, rituals bring you into the present moment and trigger a shift in your state of consciousness.

Mindfully focusing your energy on a selected intention benefits you in a multitude of ways including boosts to your creativity, commitment and confidence.

“No” as a Conscious and Creative Choice

October 5, 2017

Returning to regular life after summer holidays and silent retreats can feel like a real shock to the system.

The spacious freedom gives way to a range of commitments that usually require an immediate shift from being to doing and it doesn’t take long for personal priorities to slide into oblivion.

It’s a transition I’ve learnt to navigate by drawing on the conscious and creative choice to say “no”!

Conscious Choices

This means that the vast majority of the commitments in my schedule now are ones that I’ve consciously chosen and am really happy to follow through on.

I ease into picking up the full load over the first few days and soon find myself in a new rhythm which increasingly includes the spacious energy I’ve enjoyed from my time out as the integration of being and doing.

But it hasn’t always been this way and I know the feeli ng of overwhelm from having too much going on all too well.

And it’s an on-going practice for me to remain vigilant about not initiating too many new projects simultaneously.

Clear Boundaries

Learning to say “no” consciously is not something I’ve ever been taught to do (wouldn’t it be wonderful if the education system actually included a few core life skills!).

The Iceberg Approach to Conscious Writing

June 9, 2017

I often use the image of an iceberg to represent the way I teach Conscious Writing.

It’s a powerful illustration because it’s so clear that the 10% you see above the surface of the water simply wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for the 90% underneath.

For Conscious Writers, the visible 10% equates to the words that meet the page.

The hidden 90% includes all of the unseen preparation and preliminary creative work that’s required for the right words to arise for the most authentic and effective communication of your ideas and stories.

Inner Preparation

That’s why I place so much emphasis on inner preparation before starting to write.

Paying attention to “who you are” and “where you’re at” when you sit down to craft the words to share your message with your readers makes all the difference in the world.

No one will see the 90% preparation before the essence of your ideas shows up in the form of words; yet at some level they will feel the distinction of writing that comes from a deeper source.

A Conscious & Creative Woman is Like a River Flowing…

May 22, 2017

Hi Conscious Writers!

As soon as I read the following quote, I knew it would become one of my favourites:

“A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.” Maya Angelou

It resonates deeply with me as my journey of creative self-realization has involved moving into true harmony with my spirit and forging my own authentic path (on-going!).

My process has included developing a conscious connection with the Divine Feminine and exploring the multitude of ways that yin energy can be expressed through who I am and what I do as I follow the path to my “destination”.

Pushing the River

There have been many challenges along the way as I was brought up to value the masculine, yang qualities of taking responsibility for making things happen, driving life forwards to achieve external success and generally pushing the river!

Sound familiar?

5 Core Practices for Conscious Writers: # 1 Cultivate Awareness

May 10, 2017

My approach to writing is based on a combination of soul and craft.

Honing the skills of your craft is essential for any creative art; for most conscious creatives it becomes a life-long journey of learning and refining that is challenging and rewarding in equal measure!

When it comes to the craft of writing, there are plenty of books, courses and classes that teach you everything from the basics to advanced techniques for shaping your words to suit any purpose.

The “Conscious” in Conscious Writing

My true calling is to create, write and live consciously in alignment with my soul and to guide others to do the same – that is the “conscious” in Conscious Writing.

Working from the inside out with the emphasis on creating the right conditions for soul and craft to meet on the page requires a mindful approach.

That’s why I use the image of an iceberg to represent all of the unseen preparation that encourages creative mindfulness and leads to vibrant writing (read more about that here).

5 Core Practices

It’s also why I developed the 5 Core Practices which open the way to bring all aspects of yourself into alignment – body, emotions, mind and soul – to draw you fully into the present moment before you write.

Conscious Journaling to Clear Your Mind

March 16, 2017

The benefits of journaling are well-documented; it’s a powerful way to promote physical, emotional and psychological healing, manage stress skilfully and boost your confidence as well as your creativity.

I’ve written a journal on and off for many years and have always felt the benefit of doing so even when I don’t write every day. Sometimes once a week is enough.

Yet when I’m travelling I love this powerful stream of consciousness writing even more than usual. I capture the impact of significant first impressions seen with fresh eyes and express my thoughts and feelings about life, the universe and everything with a refreshing sense of total freedom.

A Key Tool in My Creative Treasury

My recent trip to Costa Rica has reminded me just how wonderful it is to have journaling as one of the key tools in my creative treasury. So I’m inspired to share this prompt with you…
