Today’s blog is another Julia Cameron exercise, on the above title. It is really amazing how much delight I can get from a little exercise in writing. Perhaps it is because writing is my passion, or at least one of my passions. These daily blogs have been a blessing to me, keeping my creative juices flowing, while pushing my boundaries to complete one hundred blogs in as many days. By then my book should be out and maybe the blogs will go on a back burner for awhile…or maybe not. So, here is another of Julia’s inspiring exercises from 2002.
Do I believe in God? (Another exercise from Julia Cameron) Oct. 17/02
I believe in God with all my heart and all my soul and all my mind. If it were not for God my life would be a dismal mess. God helps me see myself as I really am and so many times I don’t like what I see. But knowing that He loves me in spite of myself makes me feel somewhat better. Still, I need to change the things I don’t like about myself.
God has been so wonderful in my life; so many blessings, so many answered prayers. He is always just a prayer away. He helps me creatively as well. I remember the night I prayed in my bed, “Oh God if I really do have a talent within me will you please bring it out?” The next day I wrote “God’s Summer Day” and have been writing ever since. And I’m told that what I write is enjoyed by many people. And I say Thank You God!
Do I believe in Angels? Yes, very much so. They are messengers of God and I have my very own angel code, so to speak. I have written a story about my angels also. I would really like to be more in touch with my angels.
Regarding a writing experience that was somewhat uncanny was my experience with Celeste. To make a long story short a colleague had mentioned that Celeste might be my “angel”. Anyway, I sat down that evening and said “ok Celeste, if you really are my angel, let’s write something”.
And we wrote “Celeste” and I think it is one of the better pieces I have written.
I am very willing to experiment with the use of synchronicity in my writing. Perhaps this afternoon I will begin that process.
One topic I would like more information on for my writing is spirituality and how it affects our everyday lives. I must stay aware for a week to see how this manifests itself in my day to day journals.
This ends the exercise experiences with Julia Cameron. And only God knows what I am going to write about tomorrow! Hmmm maybe Celeste!
