I don’t know how other people write, and I don’t know all of the rules that come with writing. I’m sure everyone has a different style and writes about different things, and while I repost a lot of articles from other people, I don’t always pay attention to how they express themselves.
When it comes to writing, I only know two things: I want to write about the spiritual journey, and I want to write from the heart. Nothing else is as important to me, and no matter what I say, I want to say it with love.
When I run out of things to say, I want to sit in heart-centered silence until something new comes up. When I don’t think my work is good enough or I could’ve expressed myself more clearly, I want to stay rooted in love and continue to work patiently, knowing that it will get better.
When I’m confronted by some monumental creative challenge, I want to calmly disassemble it and emerge triumphant. I don’t want writing to become something that’s dull, uninteresting or centered purely in the mind, and I want to express a higher perspective whenever possible.
I still haven’t figured out the key to staying in a consistent or coherent creative flow, and I’ve come to understand that writer’s block (along with not feeling good enough) is a part of the process and we just have to deal with it the best we can.
The worst thing we can do is let it bring us down, but when we’re centered in the heart, we can handle it more easily and we won’t burn ourselves out or make ourselves miserable trying to stay in our flow or create something ‘good’.
We’ll understand that flowing and being ‘good’ will happen in their own time, and until then, the best thing we can do is patiently develop our craft and remember to have fun with it. We won’t always feel like our work is the best or most acceptable, but anything we contribute is significant – especially right now.
We’re in some pretty interesting times, and any perspective that anyone has to offer is significant. We all need to give our perspective on the things that are unfolding in our lives and the world around us, because we all have a unique piece of the puzzle to contribute and without us, the world is missing something.
We aren’t too small or insignificant for our voice to mean anything, and we have a lot more power than we’ve been programmed to believe. With love by our side, we’ll be able to express ourselves in any way we see fit and our fulfillment will skyrocket as we dedicate ourselves to our creativity and learn to enjoy life.
Everything we seek lives in the heart, and this can especially be said for our creativity, so let’s look to it (and our higher consciousness in general) for all of the love, fulfillment and self-expression we seek. We have to believe in ourselves if we want our heart-centered expressions to mean anything, and this too will get easier when we’re rooted in love.
Even if others belittle our work or the philosophy that drives it, we won’t be dismayed by their judgment or criticism because we’ll know that in the big picture, we’re entering a reality of infinite love and creative potential.
In fact, criticism could encourage us to try even harder and do even more with our social and spiritual awareness, and if we’re more motivated, we’ll naturally achieve more and we’ll be more excited to take on new creative challenges and express ourselves in new, unique ways.
The first step is to look in our heart for love, happiness, fulfillment and unlimited creativity, and everything will fall into place when we can do this. After we repeatedly place ourselves in this space, it’ll eventually become natural and we’ll no longer need to make an effort to find what will already be here.
Every spiritual practice requires effort in the beginning, and in time, it becomes so natural that we don’t even realize we’re doing it. We’ll be constantly centered in the heart if we keep at it, so it’ll become as effortless as breathing and our monumental achievement might not even be evident at first.
We have to make an effort and keep at it in the beginning, but if we stay dedicated, life will eventually revolve around our love and our higher consciousness. Then, we can really start our work and reach more people than we ever thought possible.
The world will respond to our love and centeredness, and others will learn to joyfully and passionately express themselves from the heart. We’re teachers and wayshowers who are training ourselves for the next level, and anchoring ourselves in the heart now will make our role a lot easier in the immediate future.

I’m a twenty-two year old spiritual writer, blogger and channel for the creative expression of the inner universe, and I created The Culture of Awareness daily news site.
The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, articles I’ve written, and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material about the fall of the planetary elite and a new paradigm of unity and spirituality.
I’ve contributed to a few different spiritual websites including The Master Shift, Waking Times, Golden Age of Gaia, Wake Up World and Expanded Consciousness. I can also be found on Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness) and Twitter, and I write a paid weekly newsletter that you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month here.
