INNER DISCOVERIES through WRITING
It is my pleasure to introduce an online workshop I am offering titled, “Inner Discoveries through Writing”. I have been asked to tell my secrets. People wonder how I survived such a horrendous past of abuse and how did I reach the point where I thrive. I believe each of us have the answers within us and our own secrets that bring us to the road of freedom, peace, and joy! One of my “secrets”, if that is even the correct label, is writing. Writing has been one of the most important tools in my healing process.
I process thoughts and feelings slowly. Talking in therapy and with friends definitely help; but, writing takes me to a deeper level and brings thoughts and feelings to the surface that I wasn’t consciously aware needed to be addressed at the moment. By participating in a women’s group in the past and by talking to people affected by any type of trauma or life transition, a discovery I made is that many individuals have a need to share their words on paper with others. This has been my personal experience.
Journaling is different for me because I have the notion that writing in a journal is for one’s own eyes (and maybe a special other infrequently). For me, to know someone is reading my writings brings a level of healing that does not occur when I write only for myself. I do also write a journal though for there are benefits of no one reading your writings.
BENEFITS of WRITING

Slows your thoughts (especially if writing using a pen and paper)!
No writing experience or special skills needed! Write in prose, poetry, or lists.
After your thoughts settle, you may discover that what you truly desire is different than you initially conceived.
Often writing on one subject will bring you to another, more important topic that needs attention.
Feelings, intense feelings, can be expressed in a safe manner.
Dreams and desires that you dare not speak can be written as your thoughts flow on paper.
Access your answers within yourself!
