Writing: Food for the Soul

Spiritual Book WritingI just finished reading a client’s memoir, and the coaching of another author through a three-year writing process. Journal writing is great for staying in the flow but writing a book takes on a life of its own. It’s an epic journey all taking place in the deeper recesses of your heart.

Writing, in general, is both a cathartic and magical process. I never look forward to taking the deep dive into an involved writing project but I’m always thankful afterwards. It’s a way to ground inner knowing into the mental plane and anchor a greater level of clarity into my life.

I just finished the final draft of a new body of work, too, and I’m sitting with the feeling of awe, wonderment, and relief!

Years to Consider 9-11

This is the very first time that I have watched anything about 9-11 outside the one day after returning from the mountains right after it happened. Mark and I had gone up to Maryland, just outside Camp David for a weekend of rest and rejuvenation. I just had to understand why I was not connecting to what was happening in the way that seemed that I should have.

A year later, while my family and friends helped to move my household goods across town to a new home, I was in NY participating in a huge townhall meeting as one of 50 facilitators. I sat at a round table hearing directly from those who were so deeply affected on that day (neighbors, fire fighters, relatives of the deceased). All were asked how they wanted to remember and honor those who were no longer with us by choosing a memorial that would most honor one and all.

Since then, I have read the reports, followed the investigations, listened to the engineers and scientists give testimony as to how both the towers, and the building holding vast financial records, were destroyed. In the documentary, after watching the images of the buildings and the sequencing of events, it does appear that the towers fell in perfect demolition style.

I truly hope one day that we will understand the clear motives and intended rewards that went into fabricating such a horrific act. We may never know the facts.

In all of this, what stands out is the power of the human spirit. It is incredible. What I see are people who deeply love and care about one another and who were strong in faith, compassion and courageous.

Relationship Right for You?

Are you in a romantic relationship or stepping in that direction? It’s a really wonderful feeling. To want to be near and dear to someone is simply the best until, that is, the lower personality issues start flowing forth. Sometimes that unsettled feeling happens in little ways. Sometimes in bigger, not so pleasant ways. Clashes happen. That’s life. But how do you know, really know, if you are about to take the leap of faith into the heart of who you are, that it’s the ultimate right aligned relationship?

I get this question put to me practically everyday. Each person and every relationship is unique. But taking that leap–from mind to heart–can sometimes feel like the road trip that will never happen.

The answer I found myself giving someone recently was: Will you ever know if you continue to stand back and watch?

Of course there are more specific signals if that special someone is for you but that’s for another time. For more personal transformational tools join us for the New Earth Grid series, free webcasts on a variety of topics each month.
