The most important writing is for your eyes only, and not even for your eyes really. It’s for your heart and overall wellbeing. Sometimes I can’t even read my own scrawling. Doesn’t matter. Writing is a great stress relieving tool. And a manifestation tool.
If you don’t have a journal. You can grab a cheap spiral notebook or a piece of paper from the printer. When you are uptight about something, purge that tension by writing it. Pen to paper. There is science to back it up. Our body connects with our mind when we physically write. I just know it feels better.
If you come home and are tensed up, take 3 minutes to jot down whatever is bugging you. Set a timer. Get it out. It is therapeutic to write “My boss is an asshole!” For real. You can write “CANCER SUCKS!” or “I don’t want to bake cupcakes for the church picnic!” You can write whatever you want. Write the deepest darkest you-would-be-mortified-if-anyone-saw-it statement. You might even make yourself smile in the act. Then shred or burn the paper or scribble with Sharpie marker all over it and throw away.
That simple act of release seems so trite but feels so good. Holding on to the “deep darks” weighs you down. Get them out. Then take three minutes and write yourself a good story. Talk to yourself. In a nice way. Write how you want things to go.
You can be over the top with it yet it feels a little better to be a realistic optimist. If you want more money, writing “I am a millionaire” may feel like pie in the sky if you are knee deep in debt. If you write: “I have plenty of money to pay all my bills and more left over for tons of fun” – that is open enough to feel believable and something you can step in to.
Step one is to purge the yucky feelings. “I hate being broke” gets written and released. “I love having enough money” is the story you hang on to, and write over and over. It works.
I have manifested a man, buying and selling homes, clients, money, a month in France without working (one short year ago). Recently I was doing this writing exercise and I started writing “We sold our condo in a week” then I changed it to “Holy crap! We sold our condo in one day!”
Guess what? We sold our condo in one day.
I have many stories like that and you can too. If you are new to this, go ahead and roll your eyes. Then give it a whirl. If you are not new to this, share your stories to encourage others. Writing is a release and writing is a way to call unto you what you want.
