Nurturing Our Creative Soul as Conscious Writers

March 11, 2015

I am delighted to share this edited extract from my new book, ‘Conscious Writing: How to Write from Your Heart with the Voice of Your Soul’ (Hay House, September 2015). Enjoy 🙂

creative_wellNurturing our creative soul as Conscious Writers involves frequently filling our inner creative well so that it never runs dry and always allows our creativity to flow freely.

Conscious Creativity teaches us to do this by connecting with the whole creative cycle, and honouring each and every phase.

Yet such an approach is rarely accepted as a valid use of our precious time. Instead we are drawn by the demands of contemporary life in the western world to busy ourselves with endless ‘doing’, and direct our energy exclusively outwards to support family and friends, earn our living, and maintain our personal space.

Whilst we all need to honour our commitments respectfully, let’s remember this process begins with honouring our commitments to ourselves.

In the fast lane of doing all that seems essential, we often forget to replenish our inner resources beyond basic recharging which sees us through to the next stint on the treadmill of activity.

As a result, our output frequently far outweighs the input so we end up feeling exhausted, empty, and eventually, resentful and unwell. No wonder creative dreams are so often unfulfilled!

How Mindful Writing Will Make You A Better Writer

March 11, 2013

I am delighted to introduce this guest post on mindful writing by Satya Robyn from “Writing Our Way Home”. Enjoy.

“Go to the pine if you want to learn about the pine, or to the bamboo if you want to learn about the bamboo. And in doing so, you must leave your subjective preoccupation with yourself. Otherwise you impose yourself on the object and you do not learn.” ~ Basho

As writers, one of our most important tasks is to accurately record the truth – whether this be the literal truth, if we are writing factually, or the complex psychological truth which can be revealed through the medium of fiction. I think mindful writing can help us to do this, and in this article I’ll tell you how you can use mindfulness to become more truthful in your own writing.

There are many different definitions of mindfulness. For me, the essence of mindfulness is paying a particular kind of attention to the world – attention which is as unfiltered by our own selves as we can manage.

Everything we see and everything we experience is coloured by our sense of our self. Three people walking into the same garden will see three completely different gardens. The first, a proud experienced gardener, might notice the rare plants. The second, a child, might see the mud and want to squelch about in it. The third, a perfectionist, might notice the untidy corners and the clematis which needs pruning. (more…)

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.

How Journal Writing Enriches Your Writing Life

January 23, 2012

07. Morning2300972XSmallTravelling alone to the other side of the world to visit a new country and experience a different culture is an ideal opportunity to dive deeply into journal writing.

This is especially the case if the primary focus of the trip is to go on a retreat which encourages inner reflection as a process of creative exchange with the outer environment.

Having recently returned from such an adventure with a journal packed to overflowing with fresh observations, realisations and ideas, I’m inspired to share this reminder of the immense value of journal writing.

Of course, you don’t need to go anywhere to experience the benefits of writing in a journal. You simply need to commit to a regular practice that is, in this case, for your eyes only.

Many people see blogging as a way of writing a journal online to share with others. It can indeed work well for that purpose and some writers have enjoyed real success with that approach.

Yet private journal writing is a different practice. It delivers rich rewards, some of which may well find their way out to the world, but usually these will show up in a new form or be the invisible inspiration behind a creative project.
