"Sharing can be a way of healing. Grief and loss can isolate,
anger even alienate. Shared with others, emotions unite
as we see we aren't alone. We realize others weep with us."
~Susan Wittig Albert

Through our writing, we walk out of the darkness into the light
together, one small step at a time, recording history, educating
America, and we are healing.

The Power of Writing

Can Writing Heal?

Writing heals, because it addresses what we are feeling within.  Writing opens the door to ourselves.

Writing focuses on what is buried in the unconscious and allows us to explore our mind, and feelings.

It is a time when we can ask ourselves questions in the privacy of our own thoughts and feelings -- and we come to realize we DO have the answers within us.

We Can Rewrite Our Future by Writing About Our Past

Writing is therapeutic, because we progress at our own pace and comfort level.

To heal, all that is needed is to get past the mind and contact the authentic healer within. This healer is our natural identity and it exists beyond our mind and unconscious.  It is the perfect wholeness within us. It is feeling our total being-ness in consciousness.

Writing is a form of introspection and meditation. It allows the mind to cooperate with our feelings and jointly, bring truth into our awareness.

***Note:  We all have things that have hurt us in the past, things we don't want to think about because they're just too painful to think about.  

I encourage you to pick one thing and write about it. It doesn't have to be for anyone else to see – it’s only for you. Pick up a piece of paper, scribble your thoughts and feelings on the paper, especially your feelings. 

Then read what you’ve written. It’s powerful because it was real and you are honoring the memory you’ve written about.

When you're done writing, you can throw it away if you want to. The important thing is, just begin.
