After becoming certified as a coach I felt like I needed to "walk my talk" and it was time for me to start a blog. The fear was still there but the motivation to do it was stronger. For a few months I had the inspiration to write even if I still felt anxiety when hitting the publish button. Then something happened that blocked me. Although I was taking the action to create my blog and to write I still had some deeply ingrained beliefs that I would be attacked for expressing myself. At the time I wasn't aware that I had those subconscious beliefs but I think that by having them created a situation where the exact thing I was afraid of happened. After that the fear increased and the inspiration dried up. When I actually did sit down to write it was if I was facing a brick wall. My mind and computer screen stayed blank. Once again I dropped writing.
Luckily I am at a point in my life where I am surrounded by very supportive friends. Synchronicity happened when I mentioned to a friend that I would really like to start writing again. As it turned out she was part of a group that were just about to start working through Julia Cameron's book "Vein of Gold" and invited me to join. We meet weekly and I think that the encouragement and inspiration we provide each other is just as important in our creative growth as the exercises Julia prescribes in the book.
Thetahealing has also played a big part in helping me to get over writers block. Through it I was able to uncover and release the beliefs that were causing the fear of expressing myself as well as release the trauma around the reasons I was blocked.
Now I am in the process of learning to write for the joy of writing itself. I have challenged myself to regularly write in my blog and to be open to writing opportunities. As it often happens when we ask for something it appears in our lives. I have just registered to take part in a non fiction writing contest. By September I will have submitted a 50,000 word manuscript which is a big leap from where I was a few months ago with writing.
The reason I share this with you is to remind you that change is possible and that it can happen quickly. If there is an area in your life that you are blocked making the decision to change it is the first step. Once you have made the decision be open because chances are the universe will bring you the exact inspiration and support to work through it.
