The Sacred Art of Writing


Just like plants, from which we obtain the so called essential oils, we as human beings also have an essence. I believe that essence resides in our heart. The more we distill our heart, the more we see and perhaps understand what is our essence like. I’m not talking about our physical heart though, I’m talking about something that is way deeper than it. I’m talking about a resonance, a frequency that emanates from our centre. The more we tune into that frequency, the more we feel who we are and the more we become one with everything, melting the boundaries which separate us from what lies outside.

My preferred way to melt these boundaries is through writing. My body and mind are often disconnected from each other. My mind is usually faster and more resolute than my body, because I have lived inside my head and I have forgotten the importance of putting my body up to date so it can keep up with my mind. I have ignored my body. I have mistreated it. When I sit down to write though, such dissonance disappears and both my mind and my body become a union of light. I float in a sky made of cotton clouds and my heart keeps pouring out words.

Those words are sometimes sweet, other times bitter. I let my heart speak whatever he wants because I know that’s the only way I can reach that mind-body connection we all crave so much. That feeling of being alive and human. That feeling of reaching our essence, our deepest being. That feeling of being in touch with our core and knowing that our life matters simply because we were born. It’s for that feeling that I sit down and I write; it’s for that feeling that I let myself experience the flow of being, the flow of creation itself.

Writing for me is to step into a sacred space. It’s the entrance to my inner-being without dismissing my connection to every other human being. It’s a portal to a world where all emotions co-exist freely and where there are no harsh rules shaping their expression. Hence, writing is my way to connect with life, because when I write I dive deep into humanity’s heart. When I write, I do not only exist. I am one with myself and with the world. I am.

  1. Your writing style is amazing and very unique to anybody else’s I’ve seen on here. I don’t really know to explain it, but it’s almost poetically soulful, but you can still follow what you’re trying to say like they’re normal sentences. This is a wonderful take on it personalised for you

  2. Can I just say that I love your writing style! Wow. I’m with you; our bodies and our minds must be in sync in order for us to be our best selves. They have to learn to work in harmony. Acupuncture & meditation have really been an invaluable tool on learning how to communicate with myself. Looking forward to reading more of your work!

    1. Oh, thank you so much! That’s really sweet. I agree 200% with you and we should “do” more of what helps sync mind and body 😊 I never tried acupuncture but I’m pretty sure I could do with some sessions. Where can I read you too? Thank you for coming by and sharing the magic 🌸

  3. Such a beautiful post! #goals!

    I completely agree with everything you’ve stated here. In high school, I fell in love with creative writing. Somewhere along the way, I lost touch with my writing self up until recently. Now that I’m in the blogging world, I can’t stop writing. It just takes over me and takes me to such a wonderful state of mind!

    Another great post! Love it!!

  4. Your mention of our essence being in the heart was moving! According to Vedic Philosophy the heart is where the soul is located. Perhaps you are both correct. Vedic philosophers from thousands of years of spiritual exploration and you, because you probably have a great soul πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! That’s such a lovely observation. I read that too somewhere, can’t remember in what context, but it was indeed related to eastern philosophy. I didn’t think of it before when I wrote this, it’s so interesting how we end up ‘confirming’ eastern thinking… Thank for coming by and lightning up my day, I really appreciate it. Wishing you a lovely weekend!

  5. “It’s a portal to a world where all emotions co-exist freely and where there are no harsh rules shaping their expression.” — I feel the same way so much! This is very much like me when I write. It’s a portal to another realm, a better realm. And sometimes it’s just a place I’d rather be. Great post!
