They say there’s a book in everyone but, for most people, the thought of writing a book is so daunting they simply never start. Another reason people don’t pick up their pen is because they think they don’t have the time.
There is a way though. The human mind is so powerful that your book can virtually write itself without your conscious control – and even while you sleep.
The key lies in tapping into the Cosmic Mind through the practice of regular meditation. At first, in a time pressured world, adding 10 to 20 minutes of meditation time to your daily schedule is somewhat counter intuitive, especially if you are planning to add the writing a book to your task list as well. Yet by meditating each day for only 10-20 minutes, you learn how ‘not to think’ at all and you start to unleash untapped creativity trapped inside you. Just a week or so is enough to get amazing results and the benefits start to pay back in regained time in all aspects of your life.
Through the practice of quietening the conscious mind you receive your guiding motivation and start to manifest situations and information in your ‘real life’ to assist you in your writing. In time, the whole process becomes effortless and you find that words come to you without you having to make any conscious intervention. At this point, you become a channeller.
I discovered the ability to do this when I started to write a novel a couple of years ago on the latest thinking in cosmology. I had only been meditating for a few months before I started.
My research into the novel inevitably took me into the field of consciousness. It was becoming clear to me that a better model of the Universe was that it existed because of consciousness of all things and not that consciousness was a phenomenon caused by the Universe.
Before I started meditating, I thought it was a waste of time. As a busy person, I couldn’t afford to waste even 10 minutes during a day. Now I’ve been doing it for nearly 2 years, I feel I can’t afford not to do it – the benefits to my health, my demeanour AND my creativity are just immense.
Personally, I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to meditation and I had a great teacher who showed me some really easy breathing and mind control techniques. I realise that not everyone finds it easy to go into a meditative state, although anyone who is engrossed in a film or Coronation Street has experienced one. If you ever got home in your car and couldn’t remember your journey, you have been in some sort of trance.
If you find meditation hard, then help is on hand. A good friend of The Bookwright, Ivor Murray of Meditations UK supplies a marvelous range of meditation machines.
I’ve got a Mind Spa machine and find it really useful if I ever need an extra boost of creativity – OR if we have house guests and I need to block out external noise !
If you are starting to write a book, or any creative process, then I highly recommend it.
Apart from its benefits from a generative perspective, it is good for reducing stress, insomnia and even helping with other medical conditions such as blood pressure (don’t stop taking the pills though without consulting your doctor)
You can get hold of a machine with a cast iron 30 day money back scheme so what’s to lose ???
