As I am preparing for this afternoon/evening’s webinar, Co-Creating with the Cosmos, (sign up here) I’ve been focusing on the imaginative playful spirit of Gemini, and Gemini’s ruling planet, messenger Mercury. Although Mercury is associated with the metal silver, or quicksilver (another word for Mercury), its color association is deep golden yellow. Part of working with the cosmos is a heightened awareness of synchronicities and messages. Of course, I came upon today’s writing prompt this morning in an instagram post by astrologer extraordinaire, Rick Levine! It works so well with this month’s moon magic manifestation focus.
“The imagination is the golden pathway to everywhere”
– Terence McKenna
Breathe the sentence in. Exhale the sentence. Inhale and exhale each word. Now inhale and exhale the sentence. Then, go!
There is only one rule, keep your hand moving.
Don’t worry about grammar, spelling, or punctuation. If you feel stuck, keep writing anyway. Try going back to the prompt and write it out until other words arise, then write those—or, repeat the last word you wrote again and again until new words appear—or, write, “I am stuck,” or “I can’t think of anything,” as long as you keep your hand moving. Writing is physical, the words will move through your body and come out of your hand—just keep it moving.
Now go – for five, ten, fifteen minutes . .
