Throughout my time on earth, I’ve realized the importance of a true spiritual connection. A spiritual connection can be defined as many things.
You can look at it from a religious aspect, a conscious aspect, or even if you’re an atheist you can still develop a place in your being with a true sense of self.
When embarking on the journey of writing out your experiences its important to be centered and connected to the task at hand.
The best writers and artist of many different genres can all get to their true selves which assists them on bringing out the best in whatever they create.
Also, during dark times and areas of doubt, its always beneficial to bring yourself to an awareness of stillness that can keep you on track and focused on something other than your current circumstances if they’re not up to your liking.
For those who have been consistent with the creation of your book and have a basis for your overall story line, take a few days to really get connected with yourselves.
Be intentional about simply being. Take time throughout your day to notice your breath. There is this simple meditation I learned that you could do while you’re actually driving.
No. Its not closing your eyes in the middle of traffic while your traveling. That would be insane and highly irresponsible for me to ask you to do.
The next time you’re out driving, every time you come to a red light, simply take a deep breath, and focus those few seconds before the light changes to be still.
I think I’ve heard people call it the “red light meditation”.
It’s nothing too deep or serious. There will be times when you may forget to do it. That’s ok. When I’m trying it, there are red lights I miss as well. However, when you do it, it brings you to the present.
It also keeps you in tuned with your breath. Not to count your breath but to simply be aware of the moment.
For those who do a lot of driving during the day, during these particular times, it could slow your mind down just enough to help bring in ideas and thoughts to better help you elaborate elements of your book.
I would also suggest that in the mornings before you go to work and get in the business of life, go in your backyards, or open your windows and just listen to nature.
I’ve learned that we are all connected to everything in some form or fashion. Staying connected is the soul work that we all need to do to really find out who we really are. This is the spiritual connection I’m speaking of.
This is the spiritual connection that also brings the best out of what we create. Remember, at our essence, we’re creators.
Lets focus the next two weeks on really connecting to dig deep in our inner selves to bring the best out of what we create in our book and projects.
For those who are into prayer and more focused meditations, this should take you deeper and ground you at a level that really brings your true self in the pages of your book and bring life into your projects.
If anyone feels they may need help or stuck, just let me know. I’ve been there. From writers block to emotional or mental exhaustion or just feeling like it was too much to go through.
Trust me, its not too much. It’s simply apart of the process and that true connection can definitely help you through. Lets keep those pens pushing and ideas flowing.
