Please welcome Gloria Wendroff, author of Heavenletters and Godwriting, who has consented, after I sent her flowers every day for a week (just kidding), to share her wisdom with us from the blog. Today she talks about what she does best: Godwriting.
This article contains some of my experience and delight in Godwriting™. Godwriting is like Narnia. There isn’t a map to Godwriting. You can only go there!
Books were my parents. Books fed me, raised me, taught me ideals and gave me hidden clues as to Who I might be.
And then, so many years later, it was like the Greatest Storyteller of All came into my heart and whispered to me word for word. My life then began to unfold the twists and turns that fiction writers dream of.
What I call Godwriting, you might call Higher Consciousness, Inner Voice, Spirit or Divine-writing, this writing from our pens or our laptops at its inspired best sometimes galloping out of us so fast we can hardly keep up with the words of this miraculous writing that comes from “somewhere.”
David Hawkins, Ph.D, M.D. Author, Power vs. Force, called the Source of this that I call Godwriting The Voice for God.
Gradually, over time, I discovered a side benefit from Godwriting – ALL of my writing got faster and easier!
Naturally, the writing I speak of comes from a deeper level of truth than our surface knowing or effort. Godwriting is effortless. It has to be effortless, or it wouldn’t be Godwriting. Godwriting cannot be forced. But it can be invited. And sometimes, it comes unbidden.
God is the Boatman Who ferries us across the river of writing. But to get to the shore of the river, we have to move ourselves over to where the Boatman so patiently waits to take us across.
I love what Elizabeth Gilbert’s told about her God Experience in the talk she gave on Ted’s Place. www.ted.com/talks/elizabeth_gilbert_on_genius.html. Elizabeth tells how genius used to mean a creative spirit that shares the room we write in. In those times, the writer wasn’t a genius. The writer HAD a genius.
The writer couldn’t take the credit. It was understood that all great writing was inspired writing. Today the typical belief is that only a rare person is a genius. In contrast, Elizabeth Gilbert is sure that every one of us has a genius.
God concurs! I agree too! I have seen it. I have seen this shift come about in Godwriting workshops across the U.S. and in Greece, Turkey, England, Romania, Germany, South Africa, and Israel. Everywhere people, writers and non-writers, found themselves writing down amazing wisdom that came out from beyond their individual realm.
In order to Godwrite, all we have to do is to leave the shores of the known and enter the beautiful and vast Unknown.
What I’ve written here barely touches on Godwriting. So many questions remain.
Why aren’t we already Godwriting? How is Godwriting different from automatic writing, free writing, inner child writing, and channeling? How do we know Godwriting isn’t just our own writing? How much do the two hemispheres of the brain have to do with Godwriting? What do Einstein, St. Catherine of Siena, Bernie Siegel, M.D., Melvin Morse, M.D, the Kaballah, and a Nobel Peace Prize winner have to say that relate to the process I call Godwriting?
