I often get questions about how to use writing as a tool to help discover your deeper meaning and purpose, or to help uncover what you may be truly longing for. As a starting point, I always recommend Julia Cameron’s practice of writing Morning Pages. Morning Pages are three pages of stream of consciousness writing, written long-hand and first thing in the morning. You write without stopping and without rereading anything you’ve read.
It’s deceptive in its simplicity, yet powerful in what it makes possible to experience.
