Hey everyone, please welcome author Desiree Finkbeiner to our blog. She is the author of Morning Star (Ethos). Today she will be talking to us all about writers block. Something most authors at some point or another will experience.
We all get it from time to time... writer's block. It affects us all differently, but when it happens, productivity goes out the window. How does it happen and how can you get over it?
I seem to only get writer’s block when I’m not living my life in harmony with my spiritual beliefs. I believe that all creativity is derived from the flow of spiritual energy, which influences our thoughts and actions. If that energy flow is inhibited by poor choices, we become poorly connected to the source. As with electrical wiring, when it becomes corroded, the flow of electricity is inhibited and gadgets malfunction or cease to operate. The human soul operates the same way. If we are not living our lives in harmony with our beliefs, our connection becomes corrupted and the flow of creativity is blocked.
I overcome writer’s block by taking an inventory of how I’m living my life, and seek to change things that are not in harmony with my spiritual progression. Once my priorities are in line and I’ve taken a moment to meditate, to reconnect to the source, the flow of revelation is fluid and the creative process is enhanced.
If you're not really into meditation or prayer, then maybe some yoga or taking a nature walk would help. There's a special connection we as humans have to other life forces, and we can pull strength from the energy that other life forces create. While I prefer to pull my inspiration directly from God, it also helps to be close to his creations. Trees, streams, wildlife, pets etc. Whatever makes you feel good- helping an old lady across the street, smiling at someone who could use a smile, uplifting someone else... service. Those are all things that *give*.
When we are giving and free with our energy, it’s returned to us ten fold- So if you’re feeling uninspired, maybe it's time to do something for someone else, then the inspiration will flow freely because what goes around comes around.
