Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
I was talking about this, this morning with a lovely client and mentioned I'd write a little on how to do it. It's really super simple - you write, longhand, 3 pages of anything. Instead of me telling anything about it, firstly I think we should have Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way and who uses the morning pages as a vital tool of the process.
"Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing,
done first thing in the morning. *There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages*–
they are not high art. They are not even “writing.” They are about
anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes
only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and
synchronize the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put
three pages of anything on the page...and then do three more pages tomorrow."
In these strange times I've found them brilliant, and also recently in dealing with a long standing conflict I've found them incredibly liberating.
I've written from a space of not over-thinking, of flowing and allowing. Sometimes stuttering and stalling but each day writing my three pages. Today Byron Katie's questions crept in and were incredibly helpful, I'm not suggesting you mix and match tools - but my word, it worked for me this morning and shifted something HUGE. Phew, such a relief. I do think asking questions can be such a great tool and often describe Byron Katie's questions as a traffic light system to stopping me believing my story and bringing me back to reality.
If you've not explored Byron Katie's work before, I recommend it! Her website www.thework.com is a great place to start and I think it can be helpful to do daily, we have so many beliefs that keep us trapped in our story. Maybe I'll write more about that another time.
