Struggling to Write…

Do you look at all these people blogging, self-publishing books, sending ezines and posting their stuff on social media and wonder…

How do they do it?

OR perhaps “Why” do they do it?

A number of people have suggested I “write” and recently a friend posted on Facebook “Helen.

I really like your [Facebook] page. Great to see you, Danny and children the other evening. Thank you for a lovely eve. I left, feeling inspired. You really have a lot of knowledge, regarding the human condition, and I feel strongly this is an area you should explore. You’d make a great therapist, and the more I hear you speak, I am CONVINCED you are a WRITER!!!!………… xxxx

This got me thinking about how much I struggle to write about the things that people seem to want to hear about…come and chat with me and I’ll share anything with you, but write it down…aaahhhh!!

Perhaps you are one of those prolific writers that amaze me, OR are you more like me? Do you struggle to move how you feel, your true wisdom, into the written word?

Give me a subject you’re interested in… Give me a problem you want to solve… and I will share anything with you if you let me talk WITH you, talk and listen, listen and talk.

So why not just talk and not bother with writing?

Or in my case “trying” to write… :)

My reasons are:

  1. I have an enormous desire to make a huge difference in people’s lives… to do that I need to get my message out into the world, people need to see me, hear me and understand who I am and what I can offer them. (And now the panic sets in…)
  2. I want to grow, personally; to grow in knowledge, love and Spirit… to do that I need to put myself into positions where I have to face my fears and develop the resources to overcome my challenges. (Going into business on your own is the modern equivalent of putting yourself into a convent or monastery in the old days. It will bring up every one of your issues and force you to grow more deeply and greatly than you ever thought you could…)

Both these things can happen if I just talked to people, but there is something deep within me driving me to reach ever wider and larger audiences (while the other part of me is freaking out and doing its best to keep me in hibernation… so much safer!)

What makes you want to write or speak up? (What is driving you?)
What brings on writer’s block for you? (What makes you want to hide out?)

I respectfully suggest your internal rhetoric that stops you,  may well sound very similar to mine.  Here’s are the hurdles that hold me back from just pouring my thoughts and insights out onto a page regularly:

  1. I struggle with all this “window dressing”, much of what appears to be superfluous, inauthentic “clap trap”, and I think a lot of people I know do too. (Here I am judging based on my values of transparency/ authenticity/ being real, respect for others space and time so feeling its important only to put in front of them what is genuinely helpful to them.)
  2. I struggle to OWN the value I do provide. Do I really know what I’m talking about? Who says? (Here we have some childhood beliefs kicking in, e.g. “It’s bad to brag”, “Who do you think you are?”)
  3. The things I don’t do that I think I should, get more “air time” in my head, focusing me on what I’m not good at rather than what I am good at. (Here we have patterns of thinking or habit loops kicking in that formulated in childhood, exacerbated by school!)
  4. What if I upset someone? (And here we have the most primal of instincts kicking in, e.g. rejection from the tribe used to mean death so we do everything we can to avoid rejection or even the potential for rejection.)

Has your rational mind been answering my concerns as you read them? Of course. I know a lot of it is nonsense and the more aware I am of how my mind is working the more able I am to move through these challenges…

So again I ask you, why do you want to write? And what’s holding you back? What’s stopping you really revealing your truth? What is your message for us?

Life Purpose: Discovery Is Not Enough!

So now you know your life purpose… what are you doing with it? How are you using it to move from where you are to where you want to be?

When you finally discovered what your life purpose was it felt so exciting (or did it feel disappointing?), and then you got home and the fear kicked in… it’s too much, too overwhelming…there is no way this is me… nice fantasy but far safer to pretend than to actually move towards it… I’d need to change my job to do that but I can’t,

I need the money…  I don’t have the time to take all that on… and so on.  What do you say to yourself? What are the reasons you don’t embrace your life purpose?

The following is one of my favourite quotes of all time…

Amaterasu – don’t hide your light!

Amaterasu Amaterasu is the Japanese sun goddess, radiant, warm and compassionate.  She is the one who shows people their beauty and potential. The short version of the story is that she was so angry with her brother the storm god that in protest she shut herself in a cave and sealed it shut with a giant rock. As a result, the world was consumed with darkness. But the darkness within the cave was nothing compared to the darkness outside the cave. The people had lost their radiant mother and sat huddled in their homes, listless and hopeless. Without her light in the kingdom, they could not see their own strength and so had lost the will to go on. The world began to wither and die. In her headlong flight to the cave, she had lost her ability to see clearly… her light was truly dimmed.  She only eventually agreed to come out of her cave when she saw her reflection in a mirror. She’d never seen herself before and when she caught her reflection, she forgot her pain and fear, transfixed by her own radiance.

Are you hiding out in your cave? Have you ever really looked in a mirror and seen your true radiance? Are you depriving us of your light, making our world a duller place?

What’s that glow?

Healing Touch So many people struggle to grasp the concept of the energy that vibrates around everything…

For me I’ve been aware of it all my life. It has never occurred to me that it doesn’t exist. As a child I would see the “light” around people and even now if I don’t look directly at a person I can see their “glow”.  I’m no more “special” than the next person.  It has just never occurred to me that I can’t see it, so I can!

Try it.  Get someone to sit against a light coloured wall then look at them in soft focus and see if you can’t see a gap about a centimetre/ half an inch around their physical body and then a glow emanating from that…?

Our energy fields are fluid, are far more in tune with our environment than we realise but our emotions and our thoughts affect our auric body significantly.

If you are positive and feeling happy your energy expands and gets lighter and brighter, its vibration is raised. Because it expands it is more likely to touch others auras and so people notice you and loving the vibration you are at they are attracted to you.

Treat yourself!

I am special!

In our society we talk about love a lot! One of the current themes is “love yourself”.  What does that really mean?  Try this instead… Value yourself. Value your place in this world. See and value the impact you have on those around you. See and value the role you play at home, at work and in your community. Why value yourself? Well, it is a bit like owning a car… if you value it you will make sure it is kept in good shape so it is able to fulfil its function in your life.
