sometimes you feel you have plenty of self-esteem, other times not enough. esteem’s not the same as confidence: comes from your core. confidence is more about projection. self-esteem equals self-worth and love. good to understand that.

I’m going to be out of pocket for a couple of weeks so I’m posting very early blogs. My wonderful website has lamentably disappeared, so I thought these more- descriptive posts might be useful. I imagine coming onto this site cold can be pretty confusing, since there’s often just a few words. My deep respect for the 314 people who’ve decided to follow me anyway. I welcome any and all questions and can’t recommend this practice highly enough. It’s kept me sane through many tough times.

I’m often asked about the correct way to do this writing. Does it have to be at a certain time of day? Does it matter whether I use a pen or pencil? Lined or blank paper? How much time should I give it? What if I already hear a response as I’m writing the question? What if nothing happens after I write a question?

I respect this sincerity and always hope it’ll be a comfort when I say that the only thing I know for sure is that  having  expectations of what will happen will stop this writing cold. Trust the process. Write when you feel the need or curiosity, on whatever and with whatever feels comfortable. Write down whatever comes to you, however it comes to you. If nothing happens, rephrase the question. If that doesn’t work, try another question, or try writing your full name with your alternate hand a couple of times.

These aren’t rules: they’re ideas that have helped me and others. Welcome your own ideas. And give your inner critic a little holiday as you welcome your own results.

I’m going to be out of pocket for a couple of weeks so I’m posting 2 very early blogs. My wonderful website has lamentably disappeared, so I thought these more- descriptive posts might be useful. I imagine coming onto this site cold can be pretty confusing, since there’s often just a few words. My deep respect for the 314 people who’ve decided to follow me anyway. I welcome any and all questions and can’t recommend this practice highly enough. It’s kept me sane through many tough times.

The purpose of my blog is to show you what happens when you contact your right brain using your ‘other’ writing hand. This is called alternate handwriting. (AH: my favorite syllable!) You can literally write back and forth between your right and left brain using your right and left hands. It’s like having your own talented, completely trustworthy counselor literally at your fingertips.

One of the main gifts of this work is to make us more compassionate about ourselves and aware of when we’re not. My theory is that, the more slack we can cut ourselves, the more compassionate we can be about other people. Which in turn will lead to the world being a better place. I know that sounds naively idealistic, but I believe it wholeheartedly. Major change can and does come from simple steps. I’m determined to share this incredible power that EVERYone with 2 functioning hands can use.

I’ve been writing for about 10 years and share Glimmers from my own handwriting sessions here. My hope is that you’ll be curious enough to try writing yourself a question about something or someone that’s bugging you, putting your pen or pencil in your other hand, and letting it respond. Which it will.
