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…

Conscious Journaling to Clear Your Mind, Open Your Heart and Unlock Your Creativity

November 8, 2016

journal-431912_640I’ve written a journal on and off for many years and have always felt the benefit of doing so. It complements the ‘project writing’ I do beautifully and periodically I’m reminded of just how much I appreciate having this superb tool in my creative treasury!

Journal writing has supported me in so many ways to navigate the waves of transformation as I release what no longer fits my current reality and make the transition into the next phase of my life and my work.

Right now, I’m inspired to remind you that a conscious and creative approach to journaling, what I call Yin-Style or Conscious Journaling, is an extremely valuable practice that is well worth making a priority in your life. In fact it’s one of the five core practices of Conscious Writing. Here’s why, and how… (more…)

A Conscious Approach to Developing Your Creative Vision for 2016

January 6, 2016

eye-491625_640Life is a series of endings and beginnings. In fact, each moment is a new beginning; and each day, week, month and year we have the chance to engage consciously with the energy of new possibilities and make a fresh start.

I love the sense of potential the New Year brings and always feel recharged by the process of clearing out the old to make way for the new. Having experienced so many major and minor completions and initiations in my life, I appreciate fully the benefits of crafting an inspiring creative vision to act as an energetic blueprint for the next phase.

So here are my suggestions for how to develop your creative vision for 2016:

1. Review the Recent Past

Cast your mind back over 2015 and write in your journal about what you’ve learned, realized and accomplished – as a writer and in all areas of your life.

You may have discovered a new technique to write more freely, fully realized once and for all the importance of making time to nurture your creative soul, and finally taken action to make progress with a project you feel passionate about, however small or large that progress may be. It all counts! (more…)

3 Ways to Benefit from the Energy of the Equinox as a Conscious Writer

September 23, 2015

autumn-110668_350It’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?

Five Steps to Conscious Writing Freedom

October 6, 2014

ViewFromSteps_normandy-291367_640We all have limiting beliefs to one degree or another relating to our capacity to create, our ability to write or the potential we have as authors – or not as the case may be.

The beliefs we have are not just thoughts in our minds; they usually have powerful emotions attached and are like crystallized energy that becomes locked in the body right down to the cellular level.

Some deeply rooted beliefs require professional help to release, and there are many options available today such as the powerful energy healing technique of Life Alignment.*

However, we can make genuine progress with shifting our belief structure ourselves as long as we approach the task with as much deep self awareness as we are able to bring at the time we decide to take action.

The following Five Step Process is for discovering the beliefs you currently have in relation to creativity and letting go of those which do not serve you.

Allow plenty of time on your own and without interruption so you feel spacious enough for deep exploration and release. Take breaks between the steps if necessary to process your thoughts and feelings – walking in nature is always a good option – and rest when you need to.

This same process can also be applied to other areas of your life, including writing. Simply adapt the questions in Step 1 accordingly.

Lessons (Re)Learned from Writing My Second Book (Part 2)

October 7, 2013

Three months ago I wrote an article called 7 Lessons (Re)Learned From Writing My Second Book (Part 1)*. At the time I thought that the next installment would come at the end of my writing process.

However, I am inspired to offer some additional insights now, even though I am still in the midst of this book emerging into form on the page.

Having consciously chosen to give it the time and space it needs alongside honouring all of my other commitments, this is evidence of the first lesson of the original article: allow more time than you think to write your book – then double it!

With that said, here are three more reminders about actions that truly make a difference to book writing success:

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.

Mind Your Mindset for Successful Authorship

November 12, 2012

Head&HeartBeing aware of your mindset and how it either helps or hinders your progress as a writer is fundamental to your success as an author.

Many people understand a mindset to be “a collection of thought processes which are characteristic to an individual or a group” (Roget’s II: The New Thesaurus).

However, there is an important ingredient missing from this definition.

Mindset is not just about your thoughts; it is also about your emotions. What you think is crucial but what you feel is even more significant when it comes to writing a book for publication, and indeed with everything you do in life.

Thought and emotion are an immensely powerful combination which can either work for, or against, what you want to achieve with your writing.

Harnessing the Power of Less – in Writing and in Life

January 24, 2011

Perfect_momentThe western world has long been under the influence of the drive for ‘more’. Whether it is money, success, material possessions, power, control, knowledge – or a combination of all of these – we have all been conditioned to associate ‘more’ with ‘better’.

Writers are not exempt. With some notable exceptions, we have been seduced by our motivation to share ideas, insights and stories. Combining this with our love of words and our passion for communication, we have written more words in order to reach our readers more deeply.

Publishers have also bought into ‘more’ in a big way. More words lead to bigger books which have a higher perceived value. Such books carry higher prices leading (potentially) to bigger profits, more books sold and more market share gained.

Yet in ancient Chinese wisdom, everything eventually turns into its opposite. Ultimately, more will become less whether through force of circumstance or through choice.

So as conscious creators, we benefit from learning how to harness the power of less – in writing and in life.
