Writing Down the Chakras

Writing is an art, a gift, a practice.

I practice writing as taught by Natalie Goldberg in her many books, primarily Writing Down the Bones. Her few, simple rules for writing include: keep your hand moving, don’t reread (until after the writing session), don’t edit, let go of control, don’t worry about correctness (spelling, punctuation, complete sentences, or even making sense).

Writing practice, like any practice, is something ideally done daily or nearly daily. Writing is a skill that improves with practice. We cannot only write when we are inspired. Writing practice is the foundation of our mindfulness practice and our published works, as well.

Here are some suggested sentence starters to use during your writing practice, categorized by chakra…
