Would you like to be able to write more, and write more easily? Meditation is a great tool to help you to develop as a writer. The ten or 15 minutes you spend meditating each day tune up your mind, improving your focus and concentration.

You can learn to meditate in classes, or from CDs and books. A daily meditation session is a gift you give yourself and your writing.

Meditation is easy to learn, and long before you become a skilled meditator, you’ll find that it helps your writing.

Once you’ve learned the basics, here are three tips to improve your writing with creative meditation.

1. Bring your challenges to meditation to discover solutions

Everyone has challenges. It’s useful to select a challenge, and make it the focus of your meditation session.

This doesn’t mean thinking about the challenge: just hold the challenge in your mind once you’ve achieved a meditative state. You’ll find that solutions will come to you, either during the meditation itself, or when you wake up the next morning.

2. The magical pause – use one-minute meditations to clear your mind

Writing requires focused concentration, and this state can be difficult to achieve if you’re tired or stressed.

Use a one-minute meditation to clear your mind. Just take several slow, deep breaths, and focus on your breathing.

This pause works like rebooting a computer. It removes your everyday stresses so that you can focus on your writing.

3. Keep a meditation journal to help you to work through your challenges

When you begin working with challenges in your meditation sessions, keep a meditation journal. Write down the date, what challenge you’re meditating on, and any insights you have.

You’ll be fascinated to find each and every challenge is resolved, when you meditate on it, often within a very short time.

Meditation is relaxing and calming. It can increase your productivity, and if you suffer from any writing blocks, meditation will remove them.
