Today’s meditation, “Meet Your Muse,” is one of my favorite ways to help writers connect to their creativity and inner wisdom.
I taught my writing coach this meditation so she could lead me through it whenever I am searching for answers.
In today’s exploration, I journeyed to my muse. I felt the sun on my back in the meadow and then it became dark in the woods. Fireflies lit my way to the cottage where I usually meet my muse.
For the first time, I do not enter the cottage. Instead, my muse comes outside to meet me! We look at the stars and see shooting stars. My muse says, “Make a wish.”
I wish for a feeling that embodies The Joy of Writing Journal. I embody the book and the book feels so happy bringing joy to many people.
I see The Joy of Writing Journal being passed hand to hand—other books, poems, journaling, coming into being inspired by the seeds of inspiration it sows in its readers/journalers (you, perhaps!).
I see a wonderful ball of light representing creativity and that grows and grows as people work through the journal. We all have so much fun. We feel more alive, more connected to each other and to our own inner worlds. The light illuminates our lives and The Joy of Writing Journal is very happy to see all this richness of experience from one little, simple book.
On the one hand, I remember feeling so light and exhilarated when I wrote this. On the other hand, I’m a little embarrassed to share it. I worrry you’ll find it trite.
I’m going to take a risk that maybe you’ll find the idea and images hackneyed but maybe you’ll bask in that ball of light with me and just enjoy how when we share our creativity it grows and grows…
Do you have a question or two you want to ask your creative inner muse?
Listen to today’s meditation and ask your questions. See where your muse takes you.
And after you write, or later today, spend some time on the summary page, jotting down things that happened this week that you could write about, things that inspired you. And don’t forget to record the times you plan to write each day during the coming week!
