Meditation and Psychic Intuitiveness In Writing



“As a writer my intuition and empathy helps me connect with others through my words. It’s what helps me bond with others because I feel so deeply.” – Dahlia Rose

I believe in muses and "vibes" from places and spaces. I like to think it’s my muse or guardian angel helping me get the words out and build the character. It’s like we are all trying to get the next book out. It can be magical at times.

I am very intuitive and empathic. I can feel a variety of things from a person without them saying a word so I like to think that I “tap” into a higher source especially when I am writing. I can also pull the energy from places that have great presence which helps me write as well.

Savannah, Georgia is a city with a plethora of energy. It has a huge historical presence. While I was there, my group and I went into a confederate graveyard and could feel the history of battle and war. We walked under the trees and could feel old world Savannah. It is a new town built with an old world feel from the river front to the board walk -energy is there. It’s a great place for a writer to be inspired and character build.

Whenever I start a novel I have an idea in mind of how I want the characters to be. I have a lot of the plot and rising action already sorted out before I begin. But, sometimes the characters become something completely different and I just go with it. My instincts will say “no” and pull me in another direction allowing another spin making the characters richer. 

One of the greatest things I have learned in life is to always trust my instincts. I always tell writers, my children, people in general to trust their instincts because they will never steer you wrong and will protect you from so many unwanted hassles and obstacles. For example, in the publishing business you have to trust your gut. Unfortunately, not everyone has your best interest and my instincts have always stopped me from getting into sticky situations with these types of people. Some people are also just generally negative and that vibe can land on you!

As a writer my intuition and empathy helps me connect with others through my words. It’s what helps me bond with others because I feel so deeply.  Consequently, I can also be around negativity and pick that energy up as well if I am not protected. And, I protect myself with love and meditation. They say we should all meditate and tap into our higher selves. I believe meditation can be done many ways. Some people sit in silence and concentrate on their breathing while others go for a long nature walk. I, on the other hand, love to sit in bed with my coffee and talk to my husband. So, I guess you can say I meditate on LOVE before I start working.

That is why as Singer-Erykah Badu says, “I pick my friends like I pick my fruit. “ It’s essential to my creative life to surround myself with love, positive people and take time out to meditate. Meditation helps me tap into my muse. But, the greatest thing it does for me is connect me to a higher source and allow my creativity to blossom and bloom.
