Nothing has helped me achieve greater clarity and healing than daily Writing Meditation.
Chatting with my friends and my Life Coach Julie Edge is great, of course, and definitely better than talking to myself all the time. (Perspective, right?) But daily Writing Meditation is 10 times better; because when my thoughts crystallize into written words, patterns that I couldn’t see in the swirling of my internal monologue become clear.
The first few minutes of pen-to-paper writing is really the surface excavation: I’m dumping and scooping and sweeping dirt aside to get down to the next level. The “next level” is when I get courageous enough to write down the thoughts that I would never say aloud to anyone.
Because, they are totally and completely ridiculously untrue — but they are unconscious assumptions and are actually holding me back. Research shows that the practice of journaling and writing meditation reduces stress, help us process grief and promotes healthy expression of emotion.
When it comes to writing meditation, I’ve found that the more I do it, the easier it gets.
Writing meditation helps me identify the the mental habits and limiting beliefs that are swirling around in my mind, making it all muddy and gunky. And then it helps me clear it all off, clean up my mind and take a deep breath.
Eventually, I’ll write something down— often hidden in between sentences of confusion or worry or scheming or totally random thoughts— that just makes everything clear. I’ll read it and think: “Oh now, THAT’S valuable insight. That is a gem.”

Writing meditation is a daily practice blending the art of writing with spiritual development. Similar to journaling, writing meditation practice provides a safe place for emotional release and of ‘letting go’ of thoughts. However, different than journaling, writing meditation is not meant to capture the day’s activities or to solve a specific problem. It’s a free writing method that offers a way to observe thoughts and emotion in a judgement-free zone. This class will be led by Julie Edge of Inside Edge Coaching and Lisa Ash Drackert of Westport Yoga KC.
