Meditation Title: Freewriting
Technique: Ever since completing The Artists Way Workshop, I have found morning pages (basically a daily freewriting practice) to be an extra beneficial type of meditation that I’ve added to my daily practice. I usually spend thirty minutes on it. The idea behind it is you put pen to paper and just write streaming consciousness type thoughts. You can do this in a more directed manner, by picking a topic or keyword, or any other type of prompt, and using that to write about for thirty minutes.
My Meditation: Today I decided I’m going to meditate on the idea of my keyword for the year JOY. That means a half hour writing about JOY, what it means to be joyful, and what brings me joy. Choose your own idea, keyword, or just let yourself puke onto the page whatever comes to mind. Only you can decide if this method is therapeutic (by trying it).

Thoughts: I left today’s meditation feeling more resolute in my process and sure about my goals and trajectory. Sometimes it’s good to remind oneself of things that bring us happiness and joy.
