Writer’s block

The causes and cures

There are generally three levels of block encountered by writers and other creatives.

All are relatively easily curable – permanently.

The first type of block you may encounter is where your creative juices temporarily dry up. It can happen on one of your book writing sessions or when you just have to get that sales proposal out or that blog written.

You can sometimes just run out of ideas. Your Creative Muse has left you.

Don’t fret, it happens to all writers.

Just take a break, make a cup of tea or ideally go for a walk. Don’t think about what you are writing, just pay attention to where your consciousness lies. Is it in the front of your head? If so move it back to the centre – to your third eye. Remember to use your dream-time too. These are techniques explained more in the workshop and home study course.

The second type of block is when life just gets in the way.

So you set out with the best of intentions and perhaps things get hectic at work or a problem comes up in your family life or in a relationship. The upshot is that all thoughts of writing go out of the window.

This happens too and, again, don’t fret but do at least two things:

Firstly, think about what learnings you can get from the situation – can you use it as source material perhaps?

Secondly, try to at least keep up a daily writing exercise, like Julia Cameron’s ‘morning pages’ so you keep flexing your writing muscles.

If this doesn’t work and you really do hit a permanent block, again, don’t worry. See it as an opportunity to break an old, unwanted pattern that almost certainly affects others areas in your life.

Sometimes it’s possible to come to a complete grinding halt. You lose faith in what you are doing and why you are doing it. Perhaps the fun has gone from it. Ask yourself if you are running any negative emotions such as: Fear, Anger, Sadness, Hurt or Guilt.

The third type of block is more drastic.

Old gestalts are brought to the fore. The toys are thrown out of the door and the baby goes out with the bath water. You don’t want to ‘play’ anymore.

This is GOOD NEWS, you are coming to the point where you really want things to change but perhaps don’t know how. And do you know what? Something brought you to this site, to this page and a person who can make a permanent and lasting change in your life.

This is probably why you should contact me as I deal with writer’s with blocks all the time with authors all over the world. I use techniques such as time line therapy, brain entrainment, past life regression and good old common sense.

I guarantee I can get you through it and that your life will also take an unexpected new and beneficial turn. The cure will be gentle and enjoyable and probably the best personal development investment you will ever make.
