Day 5 of Experience Change and Open to Your Inner Writer. During this past week have you been able to connect in with your muse, your higher self, the Divine?
As writers, when we are blocked off from our creative source it makes it more difficult to get our words onto the page.
I know that for me the fastest way to connect to my muse is to dance. I haven’t always known that and my muse and I didn’t speak for many years. In fact there were several years in my life that I was disconnected to my spirituality, which I wouldn’t wish on anyone, I was living in a spiritual void, a spiritual desert.
I can’t imagine a truly creative person that isn’t connected to their higher self and their higher power. Oh they may create now and then, sporadically, but their true creativity is probably locked in a box inside of them just dying to come out.
Today we are going to explore spiritual story.
Understanding Your Spiritual Connection
Today’s Writing Prompts:
Read the questions, choose which one/s you want to work with and then listen and dance/move to the music below.
- Reflect – Did you grow up in a spiritual family, religious, going to church, not spiritual at all? Write your spiritual story from beginning to present.
- Re-examine – Are your spiritual beliefs your own or those you grew up with and took on as your own. What do you believe?
- Free write – Reawaken – What type of relationship would you like to have with your higher power?
It is time to play some music, dance and move to get the words flowing. You may choose to write between each song or you may decide to dance to them all and then write. Write whatever comes up for you during the dance or ask the questions above to get things started. Don’t worry about anything but getting your words on the page. Remember that this process is about letting go and clearing the past so that you can connect to your muse and write all that you are meant to write. Allow things to come up so you can clear them. You can write in any form you choose, prose, poetry, or even in story form. If dancing it out isn’t enough and you need a ceremony for letting go check out, Forgive Yourself and Others Through Sacred Living Ceremony.
Thank you for joining me today and I hope you found this beneficial. I’m taking a break this weekend, join me on Monday for more questions to help you blow out the stuck places and get those words flowing.
*The words that are in both bold and italics are words that you can reflect upon as well during this experiential journey.

“Sometimes poets write what we wish we could say, and they tell us what we need to know. The poems in Wild Woman Waking lead us to a place where we can proudly refuse to be “bent and broken”; instead, they document a journey to self-acceptance, peace, and understanding – where in a community of women, we celebrate and dance as Mud Women. We become women of spirit and keepers of our own keys.” ~Beth Camp
