Yes, yes, I’ve heard all the excuses… I only write on the computer, my hand gets all cramped when I write, no one writes by hand any more, I can’t read my own handwriting — and that’s just what they are my darling — excuses!
Writing From the Heart journaling is different. There are so many good reasons to give it a try:
- When you write by hand, you almost immediately slow down our brain because you can only really focus on one thing at a time
- Writing by hand helps engage your creativity, memory, and deeper thoughts because it is rhythmic
- You’ll enter the state of FLOW more easily because you slow down your brain to alpha state (in which you are aware, yet in deep concentration, as in meditation)
- It’s easier to write in your journal when you connect your HEART to your BRAIN to your PEN. You simply become the recorder of thoughts rather than a writer
- You’ll shut down your inner critic because you’ll be focused on listening, not grammar or whether or not what you’re writing sounds good
THINK OF JOURNAL WRITING AS CLEANING OUT THE PIPES
It’s a brain dump of all the mess and crap and love and joy you experience. You never have to worry about perfecting a Writing From the Heart practice because you can always use it to learn more about yourself. Resist the urge to correct your grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. It's meant to be raw and unpolished. It is a reflection of where you were in the moment you wrote it.
Get the gunk out so you can move onto the good stuff! And if there’s something there, you can always go back and rewrite and develop it more completely.
MAKE IT A WRITING MEDITATION — DO IT REGULARLY
When you write by hand you are flexing your listening muscle. If you do it every day (or regularly), it could become as important as your daily exercise regime or eating well. Consider journal writing a part of your spiritual practice. A writing meditation. Think of how wonderful it will be to reach a state of calm and contented emptiness.
GET THE HANG OF IT, THEN CHOOSE WHETHER TO WRITE WITH A PEN
You always have the choice. All I ask is that you give it a try my way first. Write with a pen on paper, and see where it takes you.
When you are able to reach that all important state of meditative FLOW where listening to your heart comes easily, you can switch to your computer if you want to. Make your writing practice your own. As long as you can go deep, and get out what you need to say, do it. Writing in a way you’re comfortable with is the most important thing to me.
