Publisher's Summary

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.

Five stars for Content, Two for Context

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a challenging review for me. I find myself wholly and emphatically accepting many aspects of this book: You cannot hear your soul unless you know how to listen, and listening takes a stated intention. I believe the author offers outstanding advice on how to do this. However, other aspects of the book I find myself rejecting outright, and taking umbrage with. These include many of the examples offered of responses to soul questions: One participant stated she wanted sunglasses, and lo, the very next day, she won $150 Ray Bans.<br/><br/>I also found the author to be very prescriptive - too much so. However, whenever the author refers back to her prescriptive guide to meditative writing, she gives an example of someone who breaks that and succeeds, tacitly offering the option to accept or disregard steps as preferred ( as an example: Read for 5 or more minutes before writing. After one session, a participant reported that she reads afterward, and it works for her.)<br/><br/>In the end – I found true value in the book. The reading was strong. I would recommend it to others.

What about Jane Cramer’s performance did you like?

The reading was smooth and consistent.

What did you learn from Writing Down Your Soul that you would use in your daily life?

The deep value I took from this book came in less than 30 words: “Address the voice directly, Write fast, Ask lots of questions, Write whatever comes - Open your heart and mind all the way, and just say what wants to be said.”

Any additional comments?

At time the book felt male-phobic. The vast majority of protagonists are divorced females, with the antagonists described as ex-husbands, fathers and male teachers. I don’t feel this was intentional; but it was a fairly consistent theme.

Great Book! A Must Read!

Would you listen to Writing Down Your Soul again? Why?

I definitely will. I think I will read this one once a year or once every couple of years as a refresher. This book is a testimony to what keeping a soul journal can do for you in your life and I think regular reminders will be great for my growth as an individual and to help me with my future struggles. I am a writer and the more diligent I am with my soul writing outlined in this book, the more fluent my other writing tends to be. <br/><br/>I absolutely recommend this book, not only to writers but for anyone who would like to see great changes in their life.

What other book might you compare Writing Down Your Soul to and why?

She references the Artist's Way by Julia Cameron (another great read). Both books have extremely effective means of working through writer's block (something I have struggled with).

What does Jane Cramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really liked that the story was read by a woman, since it was Janet's story.I could empathize with what she went through and I felt that Jane Cramer did a good job in expressing appropriate emotion in telling Janet Conner's tale. Good Performance.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I love her testomony on how soul writing made her stronger and helped her forgive. I thought it was a powerful story, one that I will not easily forget! T

Any additional comments?

Thank you Janet for sharing your story!
