I'm creating art with words these days and they are whirling out of me like never before.
But it hasn't always been this way.
I used to tell people that my writing process resembled that of a work horse, a mule, or a donkey trudging up hill.
I would hand-write a first draft, type it up and edit it and then edit it again and when I finally felt like I had found that magic sentence structure that made me feel worthy as a writer, THEN I would publish my work.
It was exhausting.
It was time-consuming.
It totally took me out of the game.
If I couldn't create a musical melody with the ways my words danced with one another then I would give up. So I started giving up a lot. Eventually, I stopped writing and it killed me.
I lost a sense of purpose, vigour and animation.
So, what's changed?
The difference lives in the way I approach writing; I no longer write for an audience. I no longer write because I should, or everyone's doing it, or because I have some divine message to impart that you need to read. The truth is, I've started to write for me.
I know my writing has an affect, it's why you're reading this now, but I'm writing to move energy --- to release thoughts out of my head and onto the page.
The reason it works is because it's stream-of-consciousness content that vibrates with the frequency of truth. I believe we are all mirrors for each other, this means that what we say or what we read often resonates with our Spirit or triggers our wounds --- both make people's writing feel personal to US, the reader.
Every pain, suggestion, idea, and advice is a sacred conversation between me and a part of me.
These are the moments where I let it go, bring it up, move deeper into it or out of it and commune with my creativity, my ego, my soul, my guides, my truth, my magic, my stories, my attachments --- the list goes on and on. These are my thoughts and how I show up to push out the limiting beliefs and crushing ideologies created by a culture designed to keep us small.
So dance for You, sing for You, write for You and create for You.
You should be the most important person in your life.
These moments are special and I'm so grateful to share them with you.
