Writing prompt to activate your personal power. Pen to paper, please!
Staying connected to what we are passionate about brings a deeper meaning to the overall quality of our lives. What do you love to do? What makes you feel alive and inspired? This doesn’t need to be anything that you’re “good” at! Often times we block our creative flow because we judge it as good or bad. Recognize when and where these judgement words pop in and shift them to something more constructive. I like the word “explore” because it brings out curiosity rather than achievement. TRY THIS EXERCISE:
Close your eye and place your hands on your belly center, breathe deeply into your core and ignite your breathing with the visualization of a bright yellow sun. In your minds eye, see that sun expand beyond the borders of your body and into the world around you. Ask yourself what lights you up from the inside out. Don’t answer quickly let the space of your mind, emotion, and spirit fill you up with the response. The gift is you get to feel and intuit the answer rather than intellectually react. As you breathe into the sensation. Gently open your eyes and write in your journal:
The answer that came to you. For example mine is “living in connection”
So I would write “living in connection”
Means……… Write out everything it means to you
What it feels like………write out all the feelings
What this creates…………..
Don’t edit, let it flow and reveal some of the deeper dimensions of what lights you up. This is how we connect to our purpose, we embody it from inside out. Enjoy the light and shine on!
