     “When I take my energy back from the belief that I don't have enough money to do this, then I feel relief and I go do it. Or I take my energy back from the belief that I can't market my book. I would be pushing it on somebody. There's a belief that selling is terrible. By take my energy back from that belief, then I can do it.

    #31 Caryl Westmore: How to Heal Writer's Block with EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques).

    WRITER'S BLOCK.  Is it a myth or a silent saboteur that can slow you down and even ruin your writing dreams? In this solo episode, Caryl dives deep into EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques), answering the questions:
    What is EFT?How does it work?How can it help you heal the root causes of Writer's Block and set you free creatively?The entire episode is taken from a presentation entitled Bye Bye Writer's Block, Hello Creative Genius  in which Caryl takes listeners through the A to Z  of the Tapping process and explains why EFT Tapping is at the forefront of body-based therapy today.
    Caryl recounts a horrifying but true story about writer's block. Joseph Mitchell, a respected journalist on the New Yorker in the 1950s, dried up creatively at age 57 and never published another word for the next 30 years.

    Writer's Block is not a myth. It cripples creativity and flow for writers. This is based on Caryl's own therapy practice, helping countless of her own clients break free from its clutches to write their books, poetry, movie scripts or take an enormous leap towards their dreams.

    "The good news is that EFT Tapping is the approach I have found most effective in resolving writer’s block in any shape or form. Who am I to tell you this? Well, first, I'm an expert trainer in EFT- Matrix Reimprinting and Matrix Goals Reimprinting, which I pioneered. As a former journalist, multi published nonfiction author and the world's first Tapping Book Coach, I combine the inner game with the expertise to help you write, publish, and promote your book."

    By the end of the episode, you will have a full understanding of why and how EFT Tapping can  help resolve writer's block and transform both your life - and writing life.

    Caryl's book Bye Bye Writer's Block sponsors this episode . The book is due out in October 2022 and will soon be available on Amazon for pre-order.

    Tip  #1
    Be genuine rather than self-serving.
    When reaching out to Influencers who might help you become a “bestselling author,” Derek says take your self-interest out of the equation. 
    Your entire attitude and approach should be ‘how is this going to help you and your audience?' It's all about them.
    Derek learned this from Dale Carnegie’s book How to Win Friends and Influence People.  Readers and influencers crave genuine attention.
     “A genuine compliment will instantly make you stand out. You'd probably be in the top 5% of people if you just take the time to personalize the message or send a short video introduction.
     
    Tip #2
    Write a book on a topic you know and feel passionate about sharing. 
    Your attitude can be: “if it makes money or not, great. Either way, I’m going to put this book into the world because people need it.”
    This averts the tendency of imposter syndrome, asking yourself who am I to write a book, is anyone going to enjoy this? 
    Tip #3
    Your reader wants to hear from YOU.
    Stop worrying if other writers have covered your topic–your next reader hasn’t heard it from you.
    “Sometimes they've heard it seven times, but they need to hear it for the eighth time and you're the one that says it right then, when they need it the most.
    “You may be the one doctor on a flight that saves the passenger’s life.”
    Tip #4
    Three Magic Words: Can I just…
     “If I had one last tip to share on my deathbed, it would be the Can I just technique,” says Derek. 
    It hinges on micro-commitments.
    “BJ Fogg, a Stanford researcher, talks about tiny habits. Steven Guise of Mini Habits, James Clear of Atomic Habits, plus several others have talked about this concept of a micro commitment. It's something so tiny that you're guaranteed to say yes to doing it.
    'Can I just open my word processor and type one sentence?  Then I can stop after that.’
    “It works because Momentum generates motivation,” says Derek.  
    It's crucial that you remember to stop and pat yourself on the back for even the smallest action, says Derek. Say to yourself, ‘I did something instead of nothing… I did more than I thought I could.’ 
    Tip  #5
    Consistency wins the day
    When it comes to building a habit, especially in the short term, consistency is more important than quantity or sometimes even quality, says Derek.  “Build up a writing habit, keep doing a little each day. It might be only a minute, five minutes, ten minutes a day, versus not writing for a week or two and having big ups and downs.”
    Tip  #6
    One hand up, one hand down. 
    “Know how to reach up to influencers and coaches who can show you what you

    #28 Albert Flynn DeSilver: Writing as a Path to Awakening

    #28 Albert Flynn DeSilver: Writing as a Path to Awakening

    Albert Flynn DeSilver is an award-winning internationally published writer, speaker, poet and workshop leader known for merging the art of creative writing with the evolutionary practice of mindfulness meditation.

    Founder of the Brilliant Writers Online Writing School, his mission as a writing teacher is to "remind people of their inherent creative genius and reignite their joy, fun, spontaneity and wisdom the practice of process writing."

    And yet, as he shares in this interview, his tumultuous childhood was anything BUT joyful, growing up with an alcoholic mother and distant father who left him and his sisters in the hands of a controlling, abusive, violent caretaker.

    As a result , feeling unsafe, anxious and fearful, he turned to alcohol at age 12 and became a suicidal alcoholic in his 20s. Albert’s memoir “Beamish Boy: A Memoir of Recovery & Awakening” documents his early life which he shares in this interview.

    He also tells Caryl about the pivotal incidents that changed his life so radically that eventually he quit drinking and became an acclaimed poet, being appointed the first Poet Laureate of Marin County California from 2008-2010. He has since presented on stages with Cheryl Strayed, Elizabeth Gilbert and many others.

    Albert reveals how he views writing practice and meditation as a path to awakening, the subject of his book Writing as a Path to Awakening: A Year to Becoming an Excellent Writer and Living an Awakened Life.

    He believes meditation and writing are a "dynamic duo"  to cultivate true depth in your own writing—so your words reveal layers of profound insight that inspire and move your readers.

     Combining the two activates a more complete, creative, authentic and spiritual self.

    Albert discloses his own writing practice which usually begins with meditative silence and stillness.  He says for him authentic emotional writing comes from the body. It comes from this experience of being in the body, courageously being willing to go into those deeper places of sensation - of fear energy, of anger. And also, by the same token, delight energy and joy energy.

    He shares his first Kickstarter Project currently underway in mid-2022 - a book of five travel essays with 10 outstanding photographs by Swedish photographer Mattias Fredriksson - titled Singletrack Mind, Finding Wisdom & the Poetry of Life on Two Wheels.

    As a special offer to my podcast listeners, Albert is offering a free 30 minute consultation where he will guide you on any writing related topic and offer the opportunity to join his Brilliant Writers community.
