The Poetry of Writing From Your Heart
Some people just know how to tap in and express the depths of their feelings. Great poets know when the truth is ready for words.
“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” William Wordsworth
We are all poets. Be willing to know yourself, to explore and write from the heart. Many begin to write but struggle with fear, insecurity or simply not knowing what they feel. We are all awakening now and feelings are shifting as we travel a new path in a more awakened global society. Your heart center will help guide you.
Writing from the heart welcomes divine inspiration. I felt inspiration today; that warm welcoming feeling that beckons you to follow. Allow new insights and new words to express your inner wisdom. There is alchemy in writing especially when your heart is engaged.
Let your heart be free. It’s your truth and you get to express it. No holding back and nothing is off limits in journal writing. I can’t imagine a better reason to write from the heart than to witness your own freedom. Allow words to flow as they wash and soothe the ragged parts of ourselves.
You’ve got what you need to do this. If you can scrawl a few characters together you can compose your own masterpiece. It’s your heart. It’s your journal and there is no judgment. Enjoy your positive findings and explore any fear or resistance. Be open to receive whatever comes forth from your heart in your own words.
You may be surprised at the alchemy that surfaces when you write with your heart. Be open and in the moment while you record your experience through your own perspective. I’m new at this myself however I am certain there are meaningful gems waiting to be discovered.
“There is a door
we all want to walk through
and writing can help you find it and open it.”
~ Anne Lamott
I wonder what doors are waiting for you to open….
What door has writing opened for you?
