Why I can’t write

For the last few weeks, I have floundered while writing these wisdom posts. I’ve started posts about healing, depression and marriage, and on each topic I’ve given up as I struggle to receive the wisdom. I haven’t understood my inability to get enthused about the spiritual wisdom I receive. Usually I’m amazed as I work out the words and am eager to share them.

A month ago, I finished writing the book that has been my most difficult, Descending into War, Descending into Contempt. This book is currently being proofed, and I’ll receive a draft version in a few weeks. Writing this book took me years, because the questions for Spirit were too hard for me to formulate and I didn’t want to ask the questions that would provide the book’s text.

War and conflict felt too difficult to write about, so my response to Spirit’s prompting was to ignore and ask for different wisdom to share. There’s so much wisdom to share that is not about war and conflict, and I’ve busily written about health, environmental issues, spirituality, and connections. I managed to put off writing Descending into War for years.

Spirit eventually nudged me into the conflict book with the blog posts about superiority. Once these posts were written, I became interested in conflicts among people and I opened to the task of channeling about aggression. The information I received has caused me to see my role in society differently, because I’ve learned how each person, including myself, contributes to the conflicts and to chaos.

After having immersed in conflict, contempt and death, my ability to be excited about other topics has been dampened. The importance of conflict resolution—between nations, regions, cultures, and neighbors—overshadows the other topics. Conflict resolution affects everything!

These days I’m focusing on working one-on-one with people through Energy Guidance Complete, which gives me great satisfaction watching them take the wisdom and use it for positive change. One of these days, I’ll finish the blog posts I left mid-sentence, and I’ll inundate you all with the wonderful words from Spirit!

Writing Life

Post 30 luck

From the upcoming book of poetry titled Connection.

Sitting at
a table
on a bed
in a park
by the sea
near busy shopping areas

Writers absorb life.

Observing with
curious eyes
wondering ears
flexible ideas
examined experiences
inspiration sources

Writers receive life.

Concentrated creation
involved development
bated breath
changing pace
sensing guidance
temporarily away

Writers feel the writing.

Personal hindrances
learned  routines
family needs
daily responsibilities
community influences
living requirements

Writers manage interference.

 Like others,
Writers struggle with
Daily obligations and
Self-inflicted stumbling blocks.

 Unlike others,
Writers wear the
Call to write
Inside their bones.
