What are the benefits of Intuitive Writing
- Telling our stories is healing for both us and the listener/reader. When someone hears themselves in our story and gets to say, “Me too,” we help them feel connected.
- Intuitive writing is the way we touch hearts, a direct line to the soul, and a new paradigm in communication.
- Through writing we can uncover our limiting beliefs and release them.
- We deepen our relationship to Self, which is our pathway to fully loving and accepting ourselves.
- We gain clarity about our next steps in life or how to resolve a problematic situation without becoming overwhelmed or stressed.
- We can vision our ideal lives and see more clearly how we can actualize our dreams.
- We can let go of painful memories, fears and traumas through our writing process which allows us to find peace & joy
I began writing as a child filling up many journals with my poetry and short stories. I always dreamed that one day I would become a professional writer.
At university, I studied English with a strong emphasis in creative writing. I was published in a few literary journals and interned at Mother Jones magazine. I decided to continue my studies, and trained as a teacher in Secondary Education.
Afterwards, I taught creative writing to high school students who were labeled as the ‘troubled teens’. Writing gave them the ability to express their feelings and thoughts free from judgment. It was such an honor to witness many students step into their power and find their voice through writing and performing.
In 2005 my second son was born. Three months later I applied for a job as an editor and writer for Bali Plus and iStyle magazines, where I honed my skills as a writer and editor.
After one year, I decided I was ready to go out on my own, so I became a professional journalist and freelance writer for many publications including the Jakarta Post, Hello Bali and Bali Style. Additionally, I wrote a column: ‘Pathways to Healing the Mind, Body & Spirit for 9 years.
In 2017, my chapter was featured in “A Journey of Riches: the Benefit of Challenge’ which made the Amazon best seller list.
