Writing for you is like a kind of magic. You feel it channel through you, from something greater out there, down through your arms and fingers, and onto the page. When you write for others, your spidey senses come alive. You become like an intuitive wand tuned to the truth that wants to be shared through you.
But sometimes it feels like the magic goes away. This can happen when you become over-connected to external opinions about how to write.
- You worry you're not writing the right way, so you keep following advice that leaves you uninspired and unmotivated.
- You feel inadequate whenever you read the great writers you admire. You think you should write like them, but that creates too much pressure for your creativity.
- You believe the "experts" when they say you're only a "real" writer if you write every day, have been published, or have a literary award.
When you look too much to the outer world for validation, you can become disconnected from the magic of your own voice as a writer.
Instead of sharing from the heart, you follow rules not meant for you, and slowly but surely your writing life can feel dis-enchanting, boring, or stressful instead of enchanting, exciting, and inspirational.
With this ritual you will be guided, step-by-step, to turn inward and re-connect to your authentic voice, which is the heart of your writing magic.
My biggest hope is when you're done with the ritual you will remember something true and wonderful about your voice, and you will be able to bring this true and wonderful thing into your writing life today.
P.S If you enjoy oracle cards or are interested in seeing what they're all about, then you will LOVE this ritual :)
