For Generators and Manifesting Generators, Writer's Block happens when you are trying to write when you are not inspired. Brain fog is a common symptom when trying to initiate writing when you're not meant to. If you try to push yourself to write while experiencing brain fog, it is INCREDIBLY wasteful of your time and energy. You WILL run dry of all energy and you WILL feel FRUSTRATED as all hell.
Also, when you force yourself to take uninspired action, your mind has tunnel vision. It either isn't aware of all the other opportunities it could be responding to, or your mind's determination to write will cause you to deny yourself of those other opportunities.
Every time you deny an opportunity or a decision that feels correct, your sacral does NOT generate any new energy.
How To Overcome Writer's Block
- 1Completely SURRENDER all further writing attempts and thinking about what to write. Much like when you cannot think of a person's name until you completely stop thinking about it... a short time later, the name pops into your head!
- 2Expand your awareness to all sectors of your life and notice what you feel like doing. You could feel zero desire, a faint desire, or an excitable urge. It depends on how much energy you have left in your tank.
What do you feel like doing?
For me, it's simply to take a walk in the sun, hang out with friends, read a book, learn something specific, meditate, or take a nap.
Feeling zero desires? I'll cover that in a separate article.
The MOMENT you start doing anything that excites you... Congratulations!
You have begun to overcome writer's block because you are now responding correctly! Responding correctly means you are regenerating energy again!
Just keep responding to what excites you, and before you know it, you'll follow an excitable impulse, which will inject a ton of inspired energy and clarity into your writing, and you'll have all the energy you need.
NOTE: No matter what the excitable impulse is... I find it best to ACT UPON IT immediately because you don't know how long that inspired energy will last for. This article is the result of acting upon an excitable impulse. Now I'll return to writing my ebook 🙂
