Authentic

Quiet mind
Breathe

If nothing comes
Find a prompt
(Photographs usually work.)
Start again

Breathe
Quiet mind

Write what comes
Don’t argue with the words

It’s OK to not like what they say
Write them anyway

It’s OK to not have the right words

Write down the wrong words
The right ones can be found later

Wait or pause whenever it feels
Like the words aren’t coming… yet
Or the meaning isn’t right… yet
And the right way isn’t present… yet

Visualizing

I swim down
Deep into the reservoir
Of the pain and suffering
That is my despair
Find the glimmer of hope
Release it from the bottom
Cradling it in my arms
As I rise back to the surface
Breathe deeply in the fragrant air
Pull myself up onto the solid shore
Basking in the sun’s warmth
While pain and suffering drains away
Despair releases from my being
While hope swells in my heart
