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.

What’s new this month?

August 4, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

With summer well and truly underway here in the UK, we’ve had our usual mix of warm sunshine and wet days.

This reminds me of the ups and downs of the creative process and the reality of authorship. As conscious writers, we all need to develop resilience in order to stay the course to completion and beyond!

We also need to carve out proper time and space to dive in to developing our ideas and doing our writing over and above the short regular stints we usually do, and the summer is a wonderful time to do just that.

Without this kind of creative immersion, our projects often take far longer than we’d ideally like and sometimes run out of steam altogether, ending up gathering dust at the back of the cupboard.

Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats

This month I’m offering you the opportunity to immerse yourself in your creative ideas and writing on a one, two or three day retreat working with me in person and on a one-to-one basis.

Wherever you are on your creative journey and no matter how little or how much experience you have, the retreat is tailored to suit your exact needs.

Perhaps you’re not yet clear about what ideas to focus on and haven’t written a word? Or maybe you’re already a blogger, author or coach ready to explore your next creative and business steps?

These individually guided retreats will take place on dates to be agreed between us during the months of August, September, October and November. Read more here.

Conscious Writing Online Course

If you’re not able to travel to attend an in-person retreat, you might be interested in the new online course that I’m in the process of creating.

It’s going to be a wonderful new way for you to experience conscious writing and I’m looking forward to sharing more information about it with you soon.

In the meantime, if you’d like to sign up to receive advance notification about it, simply send me an email here or use info@iaccw.com

Finally, I’m delighted to share the details of a Super Natural Healing Summit which starts on Monday 15 August. The focus is How to Create Emotional, Physical and Spiritual Health and Lead Your Thriving Joyful Life and you can listen to my interview on the healing aspects of conscious writing for free on Friday 26 August. Read more here.

Till next month…

5 Ways to Cultivate a Creative Mindset as a Conscious Writer

July 5, 2016

artwork-1443191_640As writers, we all know how important it is to hone the skills of our craft. However sharply we pitch our work to magazine editors, agents or publishers, the words on the page are ultimately where the rubber meets the road.

Yet as Conscious Writers, we also discover the unquantifiable value of cultivating a creative mindset.

This includes both the thoughts and feelings we have about ourselves as writers and the value of our writing.

Both have a significant impact on the success we experience, however we choose to define that. In fact, unless we have our creative mindset fully charged, our words may never reach the page at all!

The bottom line is that our thoughts and feelings need to be in alignment to free up the deepest levels of creative expression. When we think about writing but doubt the worth of our ability or the validity of our contribution, it doesn’t take long for our creative impulse to dry up.

CW_RETREAT2016_GROUP_cropped750What an amazing experience we all had at the sold out Conscious Writing Retreat a few weeks ago!

Powerful from the start, the transformative energy rippled through each and every
one of us.

Immersion in the tools and techniques of conscious writing and creative living led to comments such as this:

  • ‘A pristine space to give birth to new creations; an inspiring space to envision; a safe space to reflect; a loving space to connect.’ Kelley Osborne, writer, teacher and healer www.yogatreeoflife.co.uk
  • ‘I took a journey back to myself – a coming home. I feel restored and positive about what is possible now for my writing and my life. I came with an open mind; I left with a happy heart.’ Louise Hatch, writer and business woman www.louisehatch.com
  • ‘Relaxing, joyful, expansive, creative and insightful!’ Claire Taylor, business storytelling consultant/trainer www.thestorymill.co.uk and www.deliciouslynourishing.com

3 Major Benefits of Immersion Time for Conscious Writers

May 31, 2016

hourglass-1289782_640Writing a book is a huge commitment of time and energy, especially when we approach it with the intention of writing deeply with full awareness as Conscious Writing invites us to do.

We can only truly appreciate what is involved when we dedicate ourselves to taking action rather than simply mulling it over as a future possibility.

And if we want to avoid our book taking forever to complete, we need to create a regular rhythm that includes a mix of short to medium bursts of daily writing alongside longer stretches of what I call “immersion time”.

This is when we schedule time out from other commitments to dive deeply into our topic and our writing with as few distractions as possible.

Immersion time can be anything from half a day to one, two, three or more days on retreat. Once we transition fully into creative writing mode, most of us would happily continue with it full time!

My own experience of immersion time when I was writing my latest book combined with my work with people at all stages of the creative process, proves the case that choosing to prioritize our writing is a priceless gift. Here’s why …

December 3, 2015

Julia McCutchen interviews Marlise KarlinMarliseKarlin_250
on Thursday 10th December

All writers require a regular flow of inspiration from a mix of inner and outer sources. Yet it isn’t always easy to access the inspired part of ourselves amidst the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Through her synthesis of the landmark sciences of Neuroplasticity, Epigenetics, and holistic therapies, Marlise Karlin, the founder of The Simplicity of Stillness® method, has a solution which involves the use of a meditation technology that works even if your mind isn’t still.

In this interview, you’ll learn how to increase your ability to find balance and flow as well as how to

  • access the dynamic intelligence in you – in only five minutes
  • diminish self-defeating patterns
  • understand why ‘writers block’ is a myth
  • expand your ability to bring your dreams of authorship into reality
  • become more courageous, creative and prosperous as a writer

Marlise Karlin, pioneering researcher, humanitarian activist, and author has been interviewed on NBC and Fox News and shared the stage with numerous renowned thought leaders including Gregg Braden, Panache Desai, and Dr. Eric Pearl. Converging research from 20+ years in Eastern holistic traditions and modern science, including Epigenetics and Neuroplasticity, Marlise developed The Simplicity of Stillness®, SOS Method. Over a decade of case studies from 6 continents has shaped this advanced meditation technology that has the power to release self-defeating patterns, activate energetic flows in the body, and imprint new neural pathways to accelerate healing and your highest potential.

IACCW Member Event: Understanding the Spiritual and Psychological Dimension of Creativity and Flow

October 1, 2015

Julia McCutchen interviews Richard Barrett 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.

August 27, 2015

Janey Lee Grace interviews Julia McCutchenJulia McCutchen
on Thursday 3rd September

Conscious Writing is an original approach to creative awakening which leads you to discover your true self and express your true voice – on the page and in the world.

In this interview, Julia McCutchen will explain this deeply holistic and practical journey in to the essence of who you are, and how to express your truth through the stories you tell and the insights you share including:

  • Why ‘going the extra mile’ enables you to discover your core message and naturally stand out from the crowd
  • How to overcome any and all challenges that keep you from fulfilling your creative potential
  • Where to start on your journey to become a fully fledged Conscious Writer
  • How to access the source of your true voice and bring it to each stage of the writing process
  • The steps for creating your own Conscious Writing practice as a reality in your life.

Julia McCutchen is an author, intuitive mentor and the founder and creative director of the International Association of Conscious & Creative Writers (IACCW). Following a successful career as a publisher of spiritual, personal development and lifestyle books (Element and Random House) she experienced a life-changing accident in 1999 which triggered a series of major quantum leaps in her spiritual awakening. Today Julia guides people to discover their true self and express their true voice – on the page and in the world. She is the author of The Writer’s Journey: From Inspiration to Publication and Conscious Writing: Discover Your True Self Through Mindfulness and More (Hay House, September 2015).
