To begin, let's talk MUSE THERAPY and what I call The Butterfly Effect...
Here you go, right from the pages of my MUSE THERAPY: UNLEASHING YOUR INNER SYBIL...
To have “the right book at the right time for the right editor”, every writer’s muse arsenal must be fortified with perseverance. To build then secure the foundation of their creative castles, writers must hoard and utilize that vital tool.
A sure-fire way to beef-up our perseverance reservoirs is to study and implement many ideas first proposed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. Jung theorized that humans rely too much on science and logic. We certainly know by now that those ideals sure aren’t found in our writing-for-publication journeys, right?
Jung’s approach to psychology – known as Jungian psychology – explored human behavior by studying dreams, art, mythology, religion, Eastern and Western philosophies, alchemy, astrology, sociology and literature. Instead of science and logic, Jung advocated we pursue personal goals of discovering and fulfilling our deepest, innate potentials and rely on spirituality to guide our journeys.
He believed our journey’s purpose was to meet our “selfs” through the various disciplines listed above. Then, he taught, we can transform ourselves into our essential being, a process he called individuation. (Wikipedia)
Individuation – what a beyond powerful tool for writers to harness!
Let’s examine how you can make the concept work for you and your muses.
Jung said that it’s not just ‘okay’ to follow our individual journeys and goals. He argued rather that it’s our most basic and natural purpose as human beings to pursue our own unique journey. By transforming ourselves into that special, one-of-a-kind individual we hope, dream, desire and struggle to become, we persevere.
Wow! Jung really ‘got’ what it is to be a writer. We so struggle to find our voice, our words and stories. We so want to be accepted by the Universe for our unique take on the world and human life at-large. We so have a hellacious struggle to make those dreams come true. Struggles definitely defying science and logic.
Being a writer is my Jungian deep, innate potential. Writing is a spiritual experience essential to my well-being, regardless of whether I ever become a bestselling “butterfly”.
And here’s the writer’s “butterfly” dilemma.
Most caterpillars, but not all, are pre-destined by Mother Nature to become butterflies. Writers have no such pre-determined guarantee that either by nature or nurture they’ll become published aka butterflies, let alone best-selling butterflies.
Jung does give us hope, though, that we can affect our destiny. He brought to the forefront of possibility that coincidences can be meaningful enough that they appear to be meant to be. In other words, things can happen for us as if Mother Nature and/or fate, sweet serendipity or synchronicity were the masters of our Universe.
By bringing people, events and opportunities together, Jung theorized that the Universe allows for that awe-inspiring Law of Attraction in which things just seem to fit into a plan as opposed to remaining mere random events.
To make the Law of Attraction (LOA) and Synchronicity work for you, though, you’ve got to have a plan and work it like a crazed, over-driven nutcase.
***Do you have a plan for your writing career?
***Are you working that plan like a crazed, over-driven nutcase?
If so, thanks to today's new and exciting Indie Epublishing world plus sites like The WG2E - The Writer's Guide to Epublishing - a site I created with a few of my best writer friends and business associates - Tonya Kappes, Misa Ramirez, and L. A. Lopez - your writing-for-publication caterpillar journey can turn you into a butterfly.
