"You've just given me the best book to recommend to my writing students. And you! You, who say you cannot write or do not know how to write--read this. You! You, who feel lost and do not know where to turn--read this. Janet shows you the best road…the one that leads to what your soul already knows." --Mary Anne Radmacher, author of Live Boldly and Lean Forward into Your Life
"This is a how-to book that reads like the best novel ever... With paper and pen in hand, one can find out who one is and what one's purpose is....The book is for young and old, rich and poor, happy and sad. It is a book to be treasured for years to come." -- Betsey Brooks, ARE Association for Research and Enlightenment, Virginia Beach, Va.
"...This is one of the most effective methods of psychospiritual growth available. To learn how to set this process in motion in your life, Writing Down Your Soul is an invaluable guide." --Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words and The Power of Premonitions
"Every human being has an 'inner voice,' a 'higher' nature, an awareness beyond thought and beyond intellect. It is called by various names: Buddha Nature, Christ Consciousness... Atman, etc. It is our Soul. In it we just 'know.' But precious little in our cultural training has helped us to 'connect' with that place of infinite wisdom, unconditional Love, and pure joy. Janet Conner's wonderful book, Writing Down Your Soul is a magnificent gift for us all. It offers a clear, concise, nurturing path to connecting--every day--with the highest and deepest part of ourselves. In that process it helps us become fully alive, fully awake, and fully loving. I highly recommend this superb, insightful, compassionate book!" -- John E. Welshons, author of Awakening From Grief and One Soul, One Love, One Heart: The Sacred Path to Healing All Relationships
"...put it to work enriching your life... immediately." -- August Gold, author of The Prayer Chest, Founder, Spiritual Director of Sacred Center New York
"...She has developed a special formula for success...I didn't want it to end and will highly recommend it to my clients and colleagues." -- Gail McMeekin, career and creativity coach and the author of The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women

Janet's book is specialized in that it focuses on an "inner voice" for your journal. Instead of just writing down the day's events, Janet wants you to engage in a dialogue with your inner self. By asking yourself questions, you prod yourself to answer from your subconscious, without thinking, without filtering the answers. It gets you more in touch with what the inner you craves. She goes for speed writing, scrawling quickly, so you can get those thoughts out before your mental critic jumps in and tries to regulate your feelings.
I definitely feel this is one great way of journaling. Sometimes it's good to make logical to-do lists, to chronicle your day's events. At other times, though, writing quickly, stream-of-conscious, with blinding energy can really help you get out emotions you might have otherwise blocked.
Janet provides practical advice for doing this. Set up a schedule. Commit to it. Set your intention BEFORE you write, to really give this your best effort. Commit to using the advice to take baby steps forward in your life. Try to plan a space for your writing, but don't keep putting off your start date until that space is "perfect". It is better to begin than to keep waiting. You can create the space as you go.
She provides guidelines about handling privacy issues, about blocking out distractions, about ways to avoid self-editing. You want to write your honest thoughts.Read more ›
It's the first thing to *really* speak to me in a really long time, and while I can name a handful of books that were life-changing in one way or the other (I LOVE reading), this one blows the others out of the water.Read more ›
I felt out of balance and I wanted to start journaling again, but in a way that would connect to that Divine Wisdom that seemed to showed up during my previous writing time. I came across this book and signed up for Janet Conner's online five week class. What she teaches is a very simple process to help you move from Beta (where we fret over problems) to Theta to connect to your inner wisdom.
Now is this an easy process and do you connect right away? Not if you have fears and doubts about the process or what you are going to receive. Most people do not want to hear what their inner voice has to say because that means they will have to stop ignoring things that need to be resolved in their lives and they will need to act on them. Others fear they will hear their inner critics tormenting them to no end.
Once you get past your fears and doubts, you relax into the process. You pick a time you want to write each day and commit to that time.Read more ›
