What are Writual Blessings?
Writual [rich-oo-uh l] The sacred act of writing with intention and surrender. Origin: writing + ritual = Writual
Blessing [bles-ing] praise, devotion, especially grace before a meal
I invented Writual Blessings for my Free-Write Fling class. These simple, short phrases help us sidestep the inner critic. My students have found that setting a positive intention before writing helps them access their authentic voice.
A combination of free-writing and Writual Blessings makes for satisfying and rich writing sessions.
My students love the Writual Blessings so much that I decided to match the Blessings with my watercolor illustrations. These hand-lettered cards are made of French linen and are portable enough to take with you everywhere. Finally, a joyful way to access your authentic voice.
“I love my Writual Blessings cards! I use the cards as journal writing prompts, and the illustrations often provide inspiration for creating little watercolors of my own. I prop them up on my desk, bookshelves, or windowsill to create a bright spot in the room. I love the feeling of potential, magic, and creativity that they inspire in me!”— Tess
Here are some of my favorite Writual Blessings:
Let’s bring a bit of magic to our creative process!
You’ll love how Writual Blessings help banish the meanie weenies that plague your writing. This 40-card deck offers my joyful encouragement for your writing sessions.
Now, I made these with writers in mind…people who know that they want to write or already do write. But frankly, there are a lot of people who don’t want to write but need to. I work with a lot of artists and they need to write blogs, artist statements and other materials. These Writual Blessings help you ease into the writing zone even if you don’t call yourself a writer.
And guess what? They work for all kinds of art-making, not just writing!
