Anahata (heart -level of the spine). unstruck, unhurt, unbeaten. love, empathy, selflessness, and devotion. Compassion, altursism, devotion to and acceptance of things in a divine way. follow your heart-wish (my word), not baser unfulfilled emotions and desires. psychic healing.

  • Heart-wish: What is your dearest wish for your writing? If you could reach your full potential, what would it be like? This is your hope. If you are like me, your writing journey has had unexpected twists and turns, ups and downs. Your perceptions and expectations change. Your idea of your potential changes. But keep the hope and you will not be able to give up forever.

  • Acceptance: Do you have trouble accepting your current ability and state? Change is inevitable so don’t beat yourself up so much over your now. Practice and perseverance needs time to deliver the pay-off. As your skill increases, the pay-offs may seem smaller but they are still improvements and the effects are still cumulative. You can back-slide for a while but the effort will pay off. Accept the bad and remind yourself of the good. If there doesn’t seem to be much good lying around, find some or create it.

  • Healing: Acceptance is a necessary part of healing. Are you in need of healing? Good! You recognize that a problem exists. That is a great start. Now for the bad news. Healing takes many forms and also takes time. Things might get worse before they get better. But there is always a bottom point and after that you have to improve. When you heal, your writing might be different because of what you have experienced but that is not a bad thing. Your writing is an expression of you and that you may have changed as well. As a person with bipolar, I go through the hurt-heal process X times a year. So I say from experience that if writing is important, you can give up from time to time because you can’t “stay given up”. You will write again. But my bipolar has also taught me that the healing comes faster if I don’t stop writing completely because for me writing is an essential part of me that needs to be nurtured no matter how I feel that hour or day or month.
