I hope I could show you that there are many, many “good” reasons for you to feel blocked when you want to write. And even though all those reasons are “in the mind”, they don’t mean you’re lazy or mad. Not at all.
They are real, and they have been brought up by your own dreams and goals. They are an essential part of your personal hero’s journey.
In this last post of the series, I want to encourage you to see Writers’ Block as something that allows you to find out more about you. To find your hidden worries, beliefs and family system mix-ups. Something that will make you a better author, and possibly a better person in the long run.
Because once you are aware of what’s going on below the surface, you can actually do something about it. You can shift beliefs, transform limiting thoughts, and rebalance your family system. You can change your life, and sometimes, even that of others.
And it’s not even difficult or hard.
It does take awareness, a bit of courage, and a willingness to change, however.
But isn’t that what we authors are about? Aren’t we pushing our heroes through similar change in every story we write?
Writers’ Block is your chance to grow and change.
Remember this when it hits you again. Return to this series and see which part of it resonates this time around. Do the tapping.
Try just sitting in front of your notebook or computer screen and do a couple of simple rounds of tapping. Be aware and allow what comes up. Then tap on that.
And in the worst case – drop me an email. I’m there to help you get back to writing. Because the world needs your stories.
Here’s one more set of tapping phrases to get you writing again, on your own:
Even though it is so frustrating that I want to write and feel like I’m running against a wall, I’m okay the way I am, and I now allow myself to find out what’s going on – and change it.
Even though it feels so horrible to have that story stuck inside of me, I’m okay the way I am, and I now give myself permission to be aware and figure out what’s holding me back.
Even though I’ve been blocked for so long that I hardly remember the happy writing days, I’m okay the way I am, and I now allow myself to grow and find my flow again.
Did this series help you understand yourself better?
Did it help you write again?
What happened while you were tapping?
And finally – what are you creating right now?
