It is a great moment when the mist rises from the mind of a writer and heart and soul is once again free to gently create. When words once again come easy and flow from the fingers onto the page with the excitement of being at last released from their place of hiding. An experience I have rejoiced in many times as I moved through and out the other side of ‘Writer’s Block’.
There is a freshness and lightness of being that consciously restores and grounds itself, in and through the writer’s mind and heart and soul. From this place of mindful balance, once again the twisted and crooked mass of contradictions that have sat longingly awaiting expression, can now gracefully spill out and gently take their own unique coherent form.
In this metamorphic rebirth the consciousness upon which it is carried, extends itself far beyond the narrow confines of the writer’s restrictive intellect, and ceases to be just a personal experience. For in this conscious shift the sweat, the tears, the pain and angst of all others who also have journeyed along this path is deeply and mindfully connected with and consciously understood. And with loving kindness is nurtured back to wholeness.
As any writer will identify, it cannot be overestimated the rising swell of blissful joy and grateful happiness that the transformative experience of having the dark clouds of ‘Writer’s Block’ at last become ‘Unblocked’ and lifted, to reveal the vibrant bright blue skies of new insights, awareness and beginnings… The Moment when long since closeted words step from the shadows and flow freely once again upon the page.
