“If you are looking to start blogging, my advice is to start now – it holds the key to many breakthroughs and transformations. Writing books takes many days or months; whereas, blogging is a faster process – a day to a few hours. Perhaps, this may be the very art or legacy you leave behind for life has its twists and turns.”Manprit Suri
I planted the seed of blogging in 2020 with no clue that it would lead me to a spectrum of spiritual life lessons. If you are looking to start blogging, my advice is to start now – it holds the key to many breakthroughs and transformations. Writing books takes many days or months; whereas, blogging is a faster process – a day to a few hours. Perhaps, this may be the very art or legacy you leave behind for life has its twists and turns.
If you wait longer or do not attempt it, you may continue to feel breakdowns, low, depression, or a feeling of being lost and confused. So go after what is meaningful in life without focusing on success.
“The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance, and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on the greater meaning”Oprah Winfrey
Taming your mind to kick start a habit requires a small amount of daily effort and enthusiasm mixed with two spoons of courage and a hint of willingness. It is the recipe for initiating and maintaining a blog. I could have never imagined that I would ever write a blog post inspiring you on writing a blog! But it is worth it.
Quite frankly, it will nurture your soul and mind. The thoughts that you never knew existed inside of yourself will pour out.
I had difficulty starting as I did not know what to write. But I kept watering the seed routinely. It feels good. In fact, great!
Blogging became a necessary part of connecting inside. The nagging urge to write started during the time of COVID. The acronym for COVID could have very well been Connecting Onto Voice Inside Daily via positive blogging or COVID+B!
While writing blog posts, I realized that I was freeing some space in my mind and letting life run its course on the screen. There was a way with words that started to become apparent with time. A path or a road that was less traveled was unfolding.
In this post, I will delve into 8 spiritual life lessons on consciousness blog post writing:
- Unleash Creativity
- Present Moment
- Grounding in Gratitude
- Spiritual Awakening
- Finding Life Purpose
- Surrendering to the Flow
- Letting go and Release
Spiritual life Lesson on Blogging #1: Unleash creativity
Blogging allows you to unleash the creativity hidden deep within your soul. A conscious stream of thought runs like magic. It feels like a stream of channeled energy coming deep inside from your higher or purer mind. After you unleash this hidden talent, it feels like dancing with the divine.
You have no control over this creative creature. Creativity exists in the absence of control structures. Structures can be anything that limits your thoughts, imagination or leads you to analysis paralysis. So the lesson is to let your creativity shine uncontrollably.
Spiritual life Lesson on Blogging #2: Synchronicities
Synchronicities mean meaningful coincidences. After a few posts, you start to see a pattern emerge that helps you connect with various topics you have written.
Moreover, while I was writing this post, I realized that it is a start of a New Year 2022. If you want to start a blog as part of the new year’s resolution, I can help you get started with my 1-on-1 coaching.
The year 2022, as per astrology and numerology, is the year of growth. Blogging is the best way to grow if you want to be a life coach, come out of your comfort zone, create a website or business.
Spiritual life Lesson on Blogging #3: Present moment
Blogging helps you focus and reflect on what is meaningful in your life right now. It helps you find pearls of wisdom by tapping onto the divine knowledge that you hold with at the present moment.
This art of expressing purifies your mind further. It brings your attention to hear now. It then helps you hold on to the present moment. It shows you life as it is happening and cradles you in your thoughts.
You laugh, cry, love, hold compassion in your mind for little things that mean the most. You feel a sense of joy at the moment. It helps you create a sacred space within yourself to appreciate the divine adventure we call life.
“If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up — to know that there’s life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can’t find it anywhere else.”Natalie Goldberg
Spiritual life Lesson on Blogging #4: Grounding in Gratitude
When we write posts, we learn to appreciate every little thing we take for granted. When we ground ourselves with the thoughts of gratitude, we take a deep divine into what we are truly thankful for. It makes us realize that there is so much to write daily.
There is so much credit to give to the Creator and daily. Expressing so much love, gratitude, and appreciation in your posts helps nurture an abundance mindset.
There is no wonder that an attitude of gratitude is the way to live. So write and live in an abundance of ease and grace all the time!
Spiritual life Lesson on Blogging #5: Spiritual Awakening
Awakening is a process where your awareness increases and takes a quantum leap. Blogging is a way to see that in action. To see what is hidden deep within you. To experience the transformation with the help of this skill of communication we call writing.
There is a famous adage that the pen is mightier than the sword. It boosts the credibility and power of writing -and has the potential to transform yourself and others. It can be your legacy and is long-lived indeed.
When you awaken, you engage your soul to fight with shadows, inner work and come out strong. Without expressing your divinity in the process that your soul urges you to, such as the art of blogging, you lose that precious time and precious moments.
Spiritual life Lesson on Blogging #6: Finding life purpose
If life feels meaningless, you are not fulfilling your purpose. When you start to write on various topics, you see the interconnectedness of the misery of mystery of feeling meaningless.
Blogging helps you find your life purpose. I realized that I was required to push myself out of my comfort zone to find my purpose.
Until I engaged my conscious stream of thoughts deeply on the comfort zone evolution topic, I realized what was happening. Humanity is suffering due to living uncomfortably in its comfort zone. Ikigai is a good starting gate.
Spiritual life Lesson on Blogging #7: Surrendering to the flow
I had to surrender to the flow of thoughts and see what came out. A little effort, in the beginning, started the flow. I then felt divinely guided to write these topics.
My lesson in this life is to learn to surrender and let life guide me on my journey. I need to remember that I am a passenger on the train of life, not the driver.
The lesson of patience and submission to the divine will is a strong message and a reminder in my blogging journey.
There is no free will. There never was – it was only conditional. When you are asleep, you are experiencing free will. After you are awake, you experience divine will.
Spiritual life Lesson on Blogging #8: Letting go and Release
Blogging is an act of journaling your vulnerabilities out into the world. Why would anyone want to do that? It is an act of courage. Moreover, it is a bold way to release and let go of what is not your true self.
When you showcase your vulnerabilities, you tend to allow your repressive, limiting thoughts to come to the surface. As you express them openly, you release them openly.
These thoughts were what was making your life feel meaningless as you had been holding them back for ages. As you do, you tend to embrace a true authentic self that makes you feel calm deep down inside, slows you down, makes you feel lighter, and feel happier.
It is better to binge-write blogs than to binge-watch TV. It is better to let go of TV and your limiting beliefs and mindset.
Blogging has so many life lessons to offer. It is all possible when you start writing.
“The only impossible journey is the one you never begin”Tony Robbins
The question is how willing are you? Do you have what it takes? What do you want to leave behind?
There is a spectrum of benefits to blogging. Starting a blog requires a small amount of daily effort and enthusiasm mixed with two spoons of courage and a hint of willingness.
Blogging allows you to unleash creativity. You start to see synchronicities in topics like magic. It helps you find pearls of wisdom by tapping onto the divine knowledge that you hold with at the present moment. Expressing so much love, gratitude, and appreciation in your posts helps nurture an abundance mindset.
The lesson of patience and submission to the divine will is a strong message and a reminder in our blogging journey and spiritual awakening. Blogging helps you find your life purpose. It is an act of journaling your vulnerabilities out into the world. Doing so helps release repressed feelings and lets you go of your limiting beliefs.
