Intuition – A Trusted Ally for Conscious Writers

July 15, 2017

Before the technical revolution began the process of redrafting the landscape, I learned the business of publishing from the ground up.

Inspired by the mission of communicating perennial wisdom to a contemporary international audience, I quickly realized that commissioning books for publication was more of an art than a science.

This was especially the case in the world of independent publishing, where breaking new ground and working at the cutting edge were the norm.

Working Intuitively

I hadn’t planned to develop my intuition as part of my work. Yet it wasn’t long before I experienced the limitations of decisions made on facts and figures alone.

Introducing timeless knowledge to a rapidly developing marketplace required greater insight than the study of past success provided.

Add to that the publishing reality of working one or two years ahead of the moment readers would discover the end results in printed form, and it became clear that a sixth sense” would be extremely valuable.

The Difference that Makes the Difference

Looking back, I now see that making a conscious choice to develop my intuition at an early stage of my publishing career was the difference that made the difference – not just to my work, but to all areas of my life.

Intuition – An Important Ally for Conscious Writers

April 5, 2016

prairie-679014_640Intuition can be your most powerful ally when it comes to writing your book and taking your message out to the marketplace successfully and with soul. Do you know how to access yours?

Swiss psychologist Carl Jung proposed that intuition is one of four ways human beings process the world alongside sensation, thinking and feeling. His pioneering work has contributed hugely to our understanding today.

An important gateway to conscious creativity, intuition functions beyond the mind and opens the way for intuitive writing. The hallmark of intuition is immediate and direct knowledge without the conscious use of reasoning. Rising above thought but using the mind as a vehicle, intuition is a distinct sense of Knowing.

A Strong Hunch

You will have experienced intuition already even though you may not have been consciously aware that it was guiding you.

Think of a time when you had a strong hunch, a gut feeling that you couldn’t quite explain but which just felt “right”.

You may have had an “aha” moment when you suddenly understood something which made complete sense. Or you could have experienced a gradual process which led you towards a conclusion and resulted in the complete knowledge that you were on the right track.

What’s new this month?

August 13, 2014

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

As nature continues to shower us with an abundance of summer offerings (our home grown runner beans are especially gorgeous at the moment!) creative energy seems to be flowing abundantly for Conscious & Creative Writers as well.

Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats

First of all, having mentioned to a few people that I would be offering Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats over the next few months, two places out of the total of five were picked up straight away.

I love seeing writers in the flow of awareness and having the courage to make intuitive choices relating to opportunities that resonate with “just what is needed right now”.

These one, two or three day retreats are a chance for quality time away from your regular commitments to develop your ideas and make progress with your writing alongside the guidance and support of working with me one-to-one. Read more here.

Complimentary Expert Call on Wednesday 20 August

I am delighted to be joining bestselling publisher and authentic marketing and list-building catalyst Linda Joy, publisher of Aspire magazine and Inspired Living Publishing on August 20th for this complimentary call.

Linda has invited me to speak on How to Cultivate a Creative Mindset for Authentic Success as an Author, Coach or Business Woman.

Sharing this kind of conscious & creative information lights up the world for me. I hope you’ll join us and feel equally inspired! Read more here.

Intuitive Writing Blog Tour

Four Questions for Conscious Writers to Answer & Share

August 11, 2014

InvitationLast week, two invitations arrived on the same day for me to join Blog Tours which are connecting authors with similar interests and expanding the reach for the greater good of all concerned.

I love the principle of creative collaboration and deeply appreciate the resonance of writers sharing their work and supporting each other – so I’m in!

I decided to share my responses here to the four questions asked for the first Blog Tour of authors who write about intuitive understanding to lift the veil on my current writing and to spread the word about the idea.

My invitation for you is to pick up the Blog Tour thread and take it forwards so as many writers as possible can participate and benefit from the experience.

Here’s how it works. Each writer:

  • Is invited by someone to participate, introduces that person at the start of the post and includes a link to their blog. This invitation from me to you is all you need to get started.
  • Answers four questions about their writing as the main body of the post.
  • Invites another writer to continue the process and introduces them at the end of the post along with a link to their blog.
  • Posts what they have written to their blog and shares it with their audience via social media and more.
  • Asks the next writer to post their answers the following week on an agreed day and to continue the process.
Here we go …

April Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

April 28, 2014

Conscious Listening

“I am always tuning my orchestra. Somewhere deep inside there is a sound that is mine alone, and I struggle daily to hear it and tune my life to it.

Sometimes there are people and situations that help me to hear my note more clearly; other times, people and situations make it harder for me to hear.

A lot depends on my commitment to listening and my intention to stay coherent with this note.

It is only when my life is tuned to my note that I can play life’s mysterious and holy music without tainting it with my own discordance, bitterness, resentment, agendas and fears.”

Rachel Naomi Remen, My Grandfather’s Blessings: Stories of Strength, Refuge and Belonging

Conscious Writers develop their intuition through Conscious Listening, and in the process, discover the exclusive sound of their authentic voice.

To your conscious & creative success!

Sneak Preview from the Preface of My New Book “Conscious Writing”

December 9, 2013

It’s a crystal clear day with luminous blue skies. The warmth from the sun feels nurturing as I gaze softly into the reflection on the surface of the water. The light shimmers as a breeze whispers through the trees and sends ripples to the distant shore of the wildlife pond.

I’m sitting in my favourite place with a pen and notepad on my lap, playing with words, trying them on like clothes to feel which ones resonate at the deepest level.

Finding the right form to describe the essence of my work in everyday language feels like a stretch. What words will shine the clearest light into the vastness towards which they point?

I know the essence intuitively. I dance with the energy of it on a daily basis as I journey through the linear time of the everyday world where it takes on the multitude of forms which are the threads that weave my conscious and creative tapestry.

While the essence remains unchanged, the forms continue to evolve and become ever more accurate echoes of what lies beyond. Now it is time for the next layer to be revealed.

How Meditation Benefits Creativity

July 15, 2013

I am delighted to introduce this guest article from founder of the British School of Meditation and author Mary Pearson. Enjoy!

Do you know what Richard Gere, Madonna, Clint Eastwood, Russell Brand, Leonard Cohen, Sir Paul McCartney, and Novak Djokovic have in common?

As well as being extremely famous, successful and creative people, they have all spoken about how a daily meditation practice has made a huge difference to their lives.  

Russell Brand said recently   ‘Meditation has been incredibly valuable to me. I literally had an idea drop into my head the other day while I was meditating which I think is worth millions of dollars’ The New York Times, April 10th, 2011.

The list of famous authors who have accessed their inner creativity through meditation includes: Victor Hugo, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Deepak Chopra and quite probably Shakespeare who frequently alludes to meditation in his plays and sonnets.

June Inspiration for Conscious & Creative Writers

June 21, 2013

“Ping – the immediate recognition of a truth
suddenly grasped and aptly conveyed –
is a quality writers work hard to achieve…

Language carries both unconscious and conscious meaning.
Writing can’t ping until the two are integrated.
When you hack away at your writing and it refuses to ping,
it means you still have something to learn –
either about your subject, your feelings about your subject,
or, more likely, both.

You must develop the you that ‘just knows’ (your intuition)
and stand unwaveringly by this knowledge.

Good writing happens cyclically, inside then out-side, inside then outside.
When it finally ‘pings,’ we simply bow.”

Gail Sher, One Continuous Mistake

Conscious Writers trust their intuitive impulses totally
and follow their lead towards the “ping”.

To your conscious & creative success!

How to Strengthen Your Writing With Silence

April 8, 2013

“Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Silence is one of the most significant components of the creative writing process. It is the alpha and omega of Conscious Writing, and invites readers into the essence of the stories you are telling and the ideas you are sharing.

Writing with silence leads to active participation from your readers who use their imagination to complete the picture your words are painting in the most meaningful way for them as individuals.

Powerful writing is punctuated with silence that creates space for your readers to experience the living reality beyond and through your words. As a result, your writing has immense depth and a memorable impact.

“He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.” Elbert Hubbard

The 5 Core Practices of Highly Successful Conscious Writers

February 13, 2013

The image of an iceberg is a wonderful metaphor for the creative writing process.

The 10% we see above the surface of the water represents the actual words of the blogs, books and other communications we write. It arises out of the 90% that is largely hidden from view yet without which the iceberg would not exist at all.

The same principle applies to our writing. A large proportion of the work we do as writers is invisible to our readers but greatly determines the quality of our work and the contribution it makes to the world.

The following 5 practices may not be obvious as part of the mix from the outside looking in when we read the latest book from our favourite author.

Yet, having spoken with thousands of highly successful Conscious Writers, and from both personal and professional experience of Conscious Writing in action, these practices come up time and again as the foundation for authentic success.

I invite you to dip into one or all of these practices to the extent it feels right for you at this time and see from your own personal experience what contribution they make to your writing, your authorship, and your life.
