5 key guidelines for soul writing

Soul writing is an expression of your inner reality, a process of bringing to the fore the thoughts and feelings that lurk in the inner recesses of your being, to understand oneself, to heal, find strength and feel empowered.

Soul writing is a deep and effective way of connecting with your own self and discovering those truths that are often hidden, lurking in the subconscious mind, and when you make the conscious effort to write, those words tumble out effortlessly. You could be writing a journal / diary, noting down your thoughts for the day or making an attempt to write a little poem, or simply a statement.

The truth is that when the words look back at you – from your little notebook or the screen of your laptop, they give you so much strength and joy. It eases significantly the negativity and stress that often saps away our strength. You feel rejuvenated and empowered.

The best thing is you don’t have to follow a particular structure or rule book, you are writing for your own self, so it is completely your choice whether you want to share it with the world or not.

What is important to do is to make the process of writing a daily activity, this is what would enable you to experience the benefits continuously. These are the 5 essentials factors for this:

  1. A matter of discipline: Keep aside a particular time every day, ranging from 5 to 10 minutes to write down what you feel in your journal, for example, simply as a sentence for expressing gratitude to the Universe, a positive thought for someone, or a catchy sentence that you can later post on your Instagram handle. Discipline is the key to a daily practice. Over the weekends, when you have more time, you can extend this to 30 minutes / an hour or more to write anything, ranging from a little poem for yourself, or just your thoughts on a subject or relationship / your plans for the near future or a little story.

    2. Uplifting thoughts : An important aspect of soul writing is that we consciously write that which makes us feel empowered and uplifted. Even if you are writing down a diary note for the day which has not gone particularly well, do ensure that you end on a positive note.

    While soul writing can often be a cathartic process wherein we pour out the deep (sometimes dark) thoughts that trouble us, always ensure that it should end with an uplifting sentence of hope. The reason is simple – there is always hope, and that is the irrefutable truth. And for this turnaround, we do not need an external person or a situation, we find this light within ourselves.

    3. Don’t worry about the length of the content: How much you write is not important, but what is essential is that you do it as a daily practice. Even a sentence, a small note, a one line message to yourself to cheer up, is enough. As you continue to write constantly, this daily practice will enhance your skills as a communicator / writer. You can begin with writing only for yourself, but later if you wish to, share it with the world as a blogger or on social media. What started off as a conversation with yourself, can reach out to more people and help them.

    4. A sacred space: Everything that you write is important – these are not ramblings or random thoughts. The effort you make everyday to note down and express yourself is a sacred space where you have a conversation with your own self for your soul growth. You do not need anybody on the outside to make you happy, you are turning within to find it in the core of your being. Your writing enables this miraculous happening.

    5. Keep analysing how you feel: To know how the writing process is helping and empowering us, do analyse how you feel after writing every day – Do you feel positive ? Does it lift up your spirit ? Do the current problems seem a little less daunting? Are you ready to face the future with renewed strength? This analysis is an important aspect of learning, healing and growth.

The daily practice of soul writing recharges us again and again, and helps in find the strength within. It purges out all the unwanted thoughts, reinforces positivity, and makes each person, his/her true best friend.
