Authors: Tap into Intuition When You Write

As a writer, it’s likely you tap into what many call, “intuition.” I know I do.

In a recent conversation with my sister, fine artist Lorraine Lawson, we talked about our own process for creation. It’s amazing how similar our strategy is around allowing ideas to flow through intuition.

Writers, artists, musicians, photographers, and all types of creatives often go through a comparable process of creation… tapping into that space in time that allows our expressions to simply flow.

Yet, many others get stuck. This likely happens due to getting into the logical side of who we are, rather than the creative, intuitive side.

When I get stuck it’s usually me relying solely on my logical side, rather than letting ideas flow from my intuitive side.

When I allow myself to be in the intuitive side, ideas flow. Words flow. Concepts flow.

Lorraine said she does the same thing when she is in her intuitive, creative mode.

Create First, Then Analyze

Over the years, I’ve written millions of words. Some of my words became books. Others became information products, articles and blog posts.

The only way this has been possible is to allow my creative side to simply release the ideas that have come to me. I let the words flow and then go into “clean up” mode after I’ve done a writing “download.”

If I try to make my writing perfect from the start, I tend to get blocked. If, on the other hand, I simply let the words pour out of me, I have a lot to work with.

Watch Ego… It’s out to Stop You

We all have an ego. Ego can serve us, but it can also attempt to hold us back. When in the “hold back mode” it’s that part of ourselves that wants to keep us in our comfort zone. That part that tries to convince us not to try anything beyond what is safe in order not to fail.

When we play it safe, we are not willing to take risks. Not taking risks means we aren’t willing to let others see our creations, fearing we will be judged.

No matter what you do, no matter how safe you play it, you will be judged. You must decide if judgement by others will fuel you or hold you back.

Intuition Allows us to Go Beyond Our Comfort Zone

Intuition is simply the process of how the subconscious mind communicates with the conscious mind.

One of the best ways to cultivate intuition is to take quiet time with minimal distractions. Whether it be a formal process of meditation or a walk in nature, taking time to get quiet allows for ideas to surface.

  1. I wrote a book about tapping into one’s intuition, the creative process, with particular focus on writers. See http://amzn.to/2zkBtMR
    My practice as a psychotherapist included lots of blocked writers, whom I got unblocked, and tapped into their free flow of creativity!

      It’s amazing how blocked people can get. Thanks for sharing a resource that helps them get unstuck.

  2. Kathleen, Great Blog! One point you made in your blog that really caught my attention. 1.) “When we play it safe, we are not willing to take risks. Not taking risks means we aren’t willing to let others see our creations, fearing we will be judged.” As a non-fiction author who focuses on dreams that came true and saved lives I often find it is important to focus on daring to be different and not toe-the-line, and found it always pays off.

    • Kathleen Gage says:

      Love the “daring to be different” Kathleen. Yes! Daring to be different is the best way to live!

  3. Kathleen, I have really enjoyed and also learnt a lot about creativity. I’m one person who suffers from what I can “lack of creativity” so that this is a great encouragement for me “yes hope” that even people like myself must have a creative side that we need to discover and unfold

    • Kathleen Gage says:

      Thanks for your comments Elizabeth. There was a time I considered myself to be a person without creativity. Something that helped a great deal is meditation. Taking a few minutes first thing in the morning to “connect” with that place inside makes a huge difference.

  4. You rang a bell when you wrote about letting the words pour out of you. I find it surprising how when I’m writing I hit a wall. If I stop right there, get up and walk away from the computer, and return, I have a fresh download to work with again. Can’t wait for the intuition training to start. Thanks so much for sharing the information.

      Thanks for your comments Joyce. Yes, getting away from the computer from time to time is so helpful.
