Everything we go through…
Everything we have been through…
Everything we have yet to go through…
All of this is in preparation for who we are called to become. Today I admit I didn’t want to get out of bed. I could have kept sleeping. My body feels exhausted and I KNOW that it has so much to do with this writing challenge. I understand that I am working out a part of my body that has been ignored for longer than I care to admit.
We are stretching powerful muscles. We are opening our heart, pushing our hand and arm muscles to move in a different way than we may be used to. This is what these prompts should feel like… it should feel like your hand wants to give up, like your heart wants to keep the words bottled up, but your brain is constantly moving… its crazy how many thoughts the brain carries, all the memories… our life stories!
So as you do these prompts remember you are writing from a stream of consciousness… keep the pen on the page at all times… keep the keys moving… don’t stop to think about what you want to write… ignore the critic… don’t edit… just write freely and be gentle with yourself. If in your writing a shopping list rises for you… write that down. I am sending you all more love than you could imagine!!!
Take a deep breath… sit somewhere comfortable… don’t think about it… allow what comes up to guide you. We will start with a warm-up, set your timer for 3 minutes:
Warm-up prompt 3 minutes: THE HEAVINESS OF MY EYES… (BEGIN!)
Deep breath– release…
Day 10 prompt: I CAN’T REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME… (Set timer for 11 minutes–BEGIN!)
I can’t remember the first time…
*Yesterday someone reached out to me asking if they could join the challenge late. ANYONE can join at any point. Start your 30 days whenever you feel called to begin! You are ALL welcome!
Tell me about your process… How do you feel?
There is no right or wrong way to do the prompts. They can be written in the form of prose or poetry, 1st person or 3rd, in the voice of your main character or villain… the point is to write… to keep writing… to stay with me and not give up.
I look forward to reading your responses.
My loves… this is a shared writing community. Please know that what one of us is experiencing someone else might be. You never know who you can inspire with just your words.
Please share your responses to the 30 Day ~ Becoming Vulnerable Writing Challenge in the comment section below.

And so it is. Namaste. Aché
With all my love,
