You could pray, or meditate, or dream, or visit a shaman, or a minister, or a hypnotherapist. With so many routes into inner consciousness, why write? Of all the ways to get in touch with God, as you understand God...to hear the small, still voice pointing you in the right direction...why take the time to write?
One reason: it works. It works amazingly well. If you want to engage in a vibrant conversation with the wisdom that dwells just a hair below your conscious awareness, write. Write every day, at approximately the same time, with passion, honesty, and the intention of speaking with and listening to the voice within.
Janet Conner was escaping a terrible situation of domestic abuse. While trying to figure out how she and her son could live and how they could eat, she realized she had hit rock bottom. With no other advisors, she listened to her own inner voice, which told her to start writing. As she did, Janet's inner voice gained clarity and strength, and she felt an incredible connection to the divine, and almost immediately miracles began to happen.
Today, research scientists in psychology, physics, biochemistry, and neurology are providing peeks into what consciousness is and how it works. Their findings give us intriguing clues as to what is actually happening in and through our bodies, minds, and spirits as we roll pen across paper. Writing Down Your Soul explores some of this research and instructs listeners how to access the power and beauty of their own deepest selves.

I tried to listen to all of this, but to no avail
Less about the many details of her personal traumas even thought she did have a terrible husband. But the book, as far as I could listen, was more about her life and what SHE wrote rather than how to use writing to solve problems or help to cope with them. It certainly didn't inspire me to take up her method.
All the characters were real, so they couldn't be cut out if she wanted to tell her life story and how she wrote. But it was a bit self-focused so she was the only "character" that dominated the book. But how can you get rid of the author? More gentle and diverse methods of writing or some interaction with others' (her students) ways of using her system that worked would have appealed more. Her commanding voice didn't help, either. She did give a nod to Julia Cameron's THE ARTIST'S WAY, a book I loved and used when it came out, but this author's book doesn't hold a candle to that classic.
The religious aspect others mentioned was incidental and didn't bother me that much. But every time she said "Dear God..." it sounded like a demand. Perhaps a different narrator could have brought out the content in a friendlier manner.

Selife on a Divorcee who Journals for Money
Gender baised female who turned a 2 year old against his father because she needed money. The book is based on a single perspective experience with undertones of bitterness. Oh, and the Father dies early on and she digs through his effects for the life insureance policy. At least she thanked God in BIG CAPITAL LETTERS in her journal for the 300k life insurance check
Did nothing to increase my interest in the subject. Book has nothing to offer.
Most of it. I'm tired of the male father as villian in our society. I would say go back take your experience out, find others male and female and write about their story. But honestly the I prayed for 10k and the next day Mom wrote me a check, then I prayed for 2k more and a client came up to me and said "bill me more" made me sick. Just another data point that Amreica has become a collection of people who feel entitled to money.
