The Power of Writing – Making Thoughts Tangible

I’m calling you out, you sissies who are afraid of speaking your truth. You “unspoken prayer request”ers and vague facebook post writers. You for whom everything is merely fine, and you’re fine with that.

I don’t believe your sincerity about your “problems.” You love to suffer. You want everyone to know that you’re enduring, because everyone nowadays just luuuuvvs to talk about how they persevere. #KeepYourChinUp

You LOVE the struggle, even though it’s totally avoidable. The Struggle Is Only Real If You Make It Real.

You aren’t real, “bout it,” or trying to do any better. You don’t actually want help. You want to put on a show of asking whomever it is you think created life to intercede—as what?, a testament to your belief? You’re putting on a show.

If you really had any faith or trust or hope, you’d SAY exactly what you’re dealing with. You’d CALL OUT the situation for what it is, and your own involvement in it as well. You’d STATE what you’re struggling with. You’d be REAL about EXACTLY how you want it resolved. Same thing goes for why all The Secret and Law of Attraction and manifestation techniques aren’t working for you, too.


Words have muscle. No matter if they’re thought, spoken or written, there is power in words. And we can harness the power to bring the energy of positive change into our lives.

I don’t care if you believe in Allah, The Secret, God, the Universe, the power of the mind, evolution, the Muse, yourself, Cthulhu, the collective conscience, or whatever… whatever you believe, I just hope you act like it. Give your higher power something to work with in your life. Act like you actually have faith in the transformative power of what you say you put your faith in.

Act like you believe! My goodness…

We aren’t meant to live crappy, empty, halfway lives. We are given promises, endless love. We are given an entire existence that can bend at the will of the higher power (every belief system will tell you that).

With words, we can bring clarity and guidance into our lives in an instant. A better life doesn’t have to be a postmortem reality only. Our perfect lives are waiting for the energy and space to happen.

Like attracts like. Empty spaces invite filling.

I see it like this: the clearer the thought, and the more powerful the emotion attached to it (positive or negative), the faster you attract it’s solution into your life.


One way to invite the things you want in life is to use writing as a manifestation tool.

Writing helps me feel more clear and aware of the feelings and energies in my life. Being more in-touch with those things allows me to take direct action about them. It gives me a chance to talk about what I feel on a range of things—gratitude to grief, confusion to cheeriness—thus giving me more clarity about that which I’m seeking.

Remember: what you seek is seeking you.


If you’re writing, write the words below. If you like to contemplate, set a bookmark and come back to this statement, and say them out loud. Start with this statement of acknowledgement each time:

Dear [Insert Your Higher Power Here],
There are things in my life that I would appreciate some help with right now. I know some of these can be quickly resolved, and some may take more time. I am open to however this works. All I ask it that you help me.
I don’t know what the answers are, or even how to start, but I am going to trust that there IS an answer, and that—with your assistance—I can find clarity and enlightenment. I trust that the best possible solution for me exists for the following situation:
  • I would love to find healing in my relationship with…
  • I would love to attract into my life a person who could…
  • It would be terrific if I didn’t have to __________ because then I could…
  • An idea I’ve had in my head for a long time that I’d like to turn into a reality is…
  • One thing that I’ve never been able to get sorted is _________ and it would mean so much to me to have some change here because then I could…
  • The one thing I really need a teacher for is…
  • The one thing I really need a friend for is…
  • The one gift I’d very much like to share with others is…
  • It’s terrifying, but if I could only…
  • One belief inside me that is really holding me back is______________. If I could get some help to overcome this I would be able to…
  • If I could find some forgiveness for ___________, then I’d be able to…
  • The one thing that would really change my life right now in the simplest of ways is…
  • I’d love to have more friends who were also interested in…
  • I want the best life I can possibly have. The first thing I could do to move in that direction is…

Write or talk through each of these. Do one per day & that’s two weeks to see what kind of changes you make. Take one per week & it’ll stretch out the process even longer.

Put all your focus and authentic feelings into each of them. Be candid & vulnerable—open yourself up to the solutions. Invite in the things you want or need.
