I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
Thank you so much for your question. I'm going to suggest a few crystals that I like to work with for writing but first I'd like to offer a few other suggestions. I don't think you should consider those first 10-15 minutes as time "wasted" writing is first a mental activity and it takes every writer a few moments to get their head in the game. Those first moments before you begin to communicate what is in your head are crucial because that is where the writing really begins. I am the type of writer who is almost always writing in my head...when I'm doing the dishes or filing at work or even when I am driving I am thinking about what I will be writing and how I will phrase it. For me that is one of the most important parts of the writing experience and if you look at those moments as your time for creation I think you will feel better about the time that you are spending on your writing.
I like to use Fluorite to keep my mind focus and help me retain my thoughts since my greatest challenge is getting my thoughts down before they disappear.
Lapis Lazuli is a wonderful tool to help you communicate your ideas in the best possible manner. It is especially helpful when you are looking for different words or phrases and when you are struggling with ensuring that what you write is what you really mean (sometimes things sound different in our heads and then when you see it written it doesn't feel right.) Pink Aventurine is my favorite crystal since it helps me to be creative and always helps me break through any writer's block. Finally Clear Quartz is always helpful for clear thoughts and expressions.
Thank you again for your question and for your support of Healing Crystals.com. I hope that I have been able to help and that you will not hesitate to contact me with any other questions.
Wishing you lots of Love and Light.
