Just Write Blog Entry 23:

 Just Write is written on a post-it taped to the inside of my computer. As I continue down the road of my own journey of self-development and discovery, I have challenged myself to wake-up each morning and JUST WRITE. These two words inspire me, even when I am feeling empty, to Just Write. I aim for twenty minutes each morning sometimes less, sometimes more, but I always walk away feeling better than I started. These blog entries are the product of following through on this commitment to myself. There is no rhyme or reason other than to Just Write. I am glad you are here. Perhaps I can inspire you to go more in the direction of vulnerability and curiosity  of how this simple act can play a part in your overall well-being when YOU JUST WRITE .

*******************

Some days I show up at my keyboard empty just waiting for inspiration to enter my head then through my heart and out through my fingertips. Through my practice of being present in my stillness and embrI wake up every day and welcome this quiet and stillness of a new day. Every day I show up to this stillness with the no other expectation other than experiencing and living in this moment, pausing long enough to feel everything and let go of anything that is heavy and no longer serves my body mind and soul. What started as an experiment has now become a way of life. We are what we repeatedly do and through the habit of simply taking action I have begun to go through a transformation that has changed me physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Each morning I re-commit to this practice of stillness and it is here that I am able to strengthen my relationship to myself. It is here that I listen to my inner self, love on her, listen to her, but most importantly believe in her ability to pursue whatever it is she is after. Here, her goals may change, her confidence may waver, and she may ask many questions that she does not yet know the answer to, it is ok. My stillness will look different than yours and on many days your stillness will come to you in different ways as well. That is the beauty of stillness. Be confident that yours will lead you where you need to go from here and commit to show up for her (yourself) every day.

To get you started in creating your own stillness I ask you....

If you could be doing anything, what would you be doing? Perhaps, this is the first question that will begin to manifest movement in your mind that may just be the tipping point of your own journey of self-discovery of living a life you love, every day.



acing the Now inspiration does follow, and I Just Write. Other days I show up to my keyboard full of thoughts and on these days it is much more difficult to focus, to home in on the thought that will inspire my next Just Write entry and move my mind in way that propels me into the dawn of a new day. It is 6:29 am and it is this dark of night with the dawn of day just approaching that I love the most. I anticipate it, look forward to it, and wake up at 4:54 regularly just to experience it every day. We are what we repeatedly do and forcing myself many months ago to adopt the 4:54 wake-up call has been transformation on a level that has changed me from the inside out allowing myself to shine brighter, and serve myself, others and my community in a way that radiates love and light.  Habits such as do not snooze my alarm, ever. Do not get out of bed till I have said at least three kind things to myself and giving thanks to this beautiful life I continue to manifest, daily. Immediately fill my diffuser with an oil such as bergamot, frankincense or another strong scent as it signals my brain and fires up my parasympathetic nervous system and prepares me for stillness. From there I wash my hands in cold water as well as my face. I pause here, to make sure I am present not only physically, but mentally, emotionally as the cold water on my face and hands is the welcoming of a brand-new day full of opportunity.  Whatever heavy that was still with me has now been cleansed from my face, my hand and most importantly my heart because I have chosen to do so. Coffee pot goes on by 5 am, gratitude entry is written music goes on and my stage is set. Where I go from here is within my control and with the practice of breathwork and meditation I allow myself to lose it (control) and see where I travel without ever taking a step. I am no magician, but it is through simple habits such as what I mentioned above, magic unfolds. The trick is to first identify the source of your magic and that is also the challenge.  Do you believe in magic? You can choose to believe in anything and that includes believing in yourself. Believe in your ability to manifest magic and the magic shall be revealed when all parts of your mind body and soul become one.
