The Zen of Rituals

 

Blogging is on of my most favourite rituals. It hasn’t always been this way. I have overcome fears, cleared limiting belief and let go of insecurities. Writing blog posts became easier and easier for me, in the process. To the point where I now am totally zen about blogging.

Zen of Rituals

 

How does that actually work, I was wondering one summer’s evening? And the answer was: choosing consciously to experience the desired feeling you want have about blogging. Once you regard writing blog posts to be a ritual, you’ll immediately feel totally zen about it. This is what then led me to the Zen of Rituals for your blog. How cool would it be if you create a ritual around your blog?

How do you create a blogging ritual?

Create a rhythm.

Follow a fixed order.

Write your blog posts on a set time.

Do what feels good.

Use systems.

Repeat your systems.

Tweak your systems.

Blog about questions you hear from your clients, readers and fans.

Cherish the writing process.

Appreciate and acknowledge yourself for what you write.

Trust your values and self-worth.

Blog consciously.

Embrace the ritual.

Prior to writing my blog posts, I shut out and eliminate all possible distractions. Then, I close my eyes and surrender to my blog writing ritual. I have a fresh cup of steaming tea beside me. I make sure I won’t be interrupted. I allow my intuition to lead my writing, I surrender to my rhythm, my systems and my blog topic at hand, surrendering to this powerful ritual. I consciously choose to enjoy the whole process. I am totally zen.

And finally:

Write with love for your customers, readers and fans. Anything you do with love, always feels good. That is one of the most important elements of rituals: love yourself, be kind to yourself, be kind to others. That always feels good.

Needless to say that this is only the tip of the iceberg. So, I have a question for you: is there anything you would really want to know about my ritual? Do put your question about my blogging ritual in your comment, and I will definitely answer your question!

      Well, Marie-José, let’s do that! The whole iceberg! I will create a facebook live video of that… and a range of blog posts. How does that sound?

    My writing comes to me at totally unexpected hours. I could never sit down and just expect something to “arrive”. Therefore I always carry pen and paper + my mobile to record sudden insights. Sometimes it’s just a thought and other times its a full post that I download on the spot. If I don’t they are lost and never come back. Later on might edit and I turn them into posts, memes/quotes by me.

    My post from today was a complete download of that kind. It came several weeks ago and turned into a post today. No editing at all.

      I totally get where you’re coming from, Stella, so thank you so much for sharing this! However, the systems I use… the rituals I honour, do exactly that. Many ways lead to Rome. Work with the one that works best for you, is what I say 😉

    I like the Zen of it, never looked at it that way but yes, I get up at 4:30 each morning, make myself a large cup of bulletproof coffee and go to the computer. This is when the world is still sleeping and it is quiet enough that my thoughts can flow from the mind to the fingertips. It is a ritual and one that I miss when something breaks the pattern. Love is the most important part of that ritual at so many levels. Thank you for sharing, I am looking forward to reading more in the days ahead.

      That sounds great, Chef William. Wonderful to read your ritual…, bulletproof coffee and all 😉 You’re offering me an important reminder of the time I used to get up at five, in order to get ahead of the day, and get my most inspired work done. I’ll look into that again, thanks!
