We can decide right here, right now, to change things. To get unblocked. To get in flow. To get serious about our writing. To get serious about getting over ourselves. To stop hustling for our worth. And meditation can help us with all of that. Meditation and mindfulness help us build the muscles we need to be resilient artists who can do our best work and give–and I say this as delicately as possible–zero f*cks about the industry and our inner critics. It allows us to care about the work, about what really matters.
Meditation is an invitation to freedom.
So what is your intention, if you desire to sit? Is it freedom? Happiness? Flow? Compassion? Get clear on that. Let that anchor you through the ups and downs of starting a practice. Because, like anything, starting a new thing has its challenges–which we’ll get into in the next post. 🙂
A few things:
There’s still time to sign up for my September online Mindfulness Immersion for Writers course, which will teach you how to meditate and give you the foundation for a lifelong practice, as well as ground you in a mindful writing practice. Also! You can go here to get the 7-Day Meditation Starter Kit for Writers I created so that you can begin your own practice. Downloadable workbook, guided meditations, Posture Clinic, and more.
Don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions – and I’d love to hear how your practice is going and how it’s helping your writing!
Breathe. Write. Repeat.
