Writer's Block? Try Meditation

If you're a writer, or an aspiring writer, then you probably know how this guy feels  ==================>

Completely stuck, no idea where to go, no ideas popping up and the incessant glare of the blank page.

It can be completely frustrating especially if you know you've got something to say.

Whenever I find myself in this situation, which is pretty regularly, by the way, I step away from the page (or the laptop) and close my eyes.

This is where things get a bit mystical, but if you're on my blog, then you've already swallowed the red pill.  I write about Law of Attraction and am a certified practitioner of it, so I take an LOA approach to writer's block.  Simply put, I meditate.

I already meditate daily anyway, but when I'm experiencing writer's block, I meditate with the intention to clear it.  I close my eyes and call on my higher source to fill me with inspiration.  I sit quietly with the knowledge and the faith that the universe will "pop" an idea into my head.   And guess what?   It always works.  ALWAYS!  Without fail.  In fact, some days I sit with my laptop in front of me, close my eyes, and start to write.  The ideas simply start to flow.

The trick is to have faith in the process, and to let the idea come to you.  Not the other way around. Scouring your brain for an idea isn't how this process works.  I'm not saying don't go out and look for an idea.  That works too.  But if you want to simplify things and let the universe do the heavy lifting, then meditate for a few minutes and see what it brings you.

I'd be curious if anyone else out there tries this process.  Please let me know if it works for you too!
