Product description

Product Description

You could pray, or meditate, or dream, or visit a shaman, or a minister, or a hypnotherapist. With so many routes into inner consciousness, why write? Of all the ways to get in touch with God, as you understand God... to hear the small, still voice pointing you in the right direction... why take the time to write? One reason: it works. It works amazingly well. If you want to engage in a vibrant conversation with the wisdom that dwells just a hair below your conscious awareness, write. Write every day, at approximately the same time, with passion, honesty, and the intention of speaking with and listening to the voice within.

Janet Conner was escaping a terrible situation of domestic abuse. While trying to figure out how she and her son could live and how they could eat, she realized she had hit rock bottom. With no other advisors, she listened to her own inner voice, which told her to start writing. As she did, Janet’s inner voice gained clarity and strength, and she felt an incredible connection to the divine, and almost immediately miracles began to happen. Today, research scientists in psychology, physics, biochemistry, and neurology are providing peeks into what consciousness is and how it works. Their findings give us intriguing clues as to what is actually happening in and through our bodies, minds, and spirits as we roll pen across paper. Writing Down Your Soul explores some of this research and instructs readers how to access the power and beauty of their own deepest selves.

The author does repeat a lot, but it helps one remember or absorb what is being put forward. The examples and lessons are invaluable. A must read for anyone wanting to find themselves by writing do what and who you are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life-changer of life-changers 13 May 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on

It was yet another night of lying in bed, worrying about all sorts of things, when something told me it might be time to take a look at that book I purchased a while ago. I had no idea what to expect. I just knew I wanted to learn a little more about myself and my soul. So I started reading, and found myself moved by Janet's stories about the amazing surprises and blessings that are in store for us when we write this way. I felt a sense of peace that had become a stranger to me. I'm a seasoned journaler and I've read all the great writers on the subject -- Kathleen Adams, Christina Baldwin, Tristine Rainer -- and yes, Tristine's work is wonderful at helping us see how writing can connect us to something bigger, how patterns and meaning emerges through our lives, and how we can write our story in a way that is spiritually powerful. But nothing prepared me for Janet's work: here was someone talking matter-of-factly about the downright miracles that can happen when you connect like this, and she's the most down-to-earth person who talks about miracles you could ever meet! I knew she was right because at my most connected, most aligned, the miracles have happened for me, too. I even been working on a memoir about that for a couple years now because I thought I had so much to share with the world. This book and Janet's work is teaching me that I haven't scratched the surface. There's more. So much more. And I've experienced incredible things that most people just wouldn't believe, so that's saying something.

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. The other books were inspiring, but this one is more than that: it expresses in the most concrete terms what to DO to change your life. It's a guide to that, to transformation, to how to be real, to how to listen to your intuition, to how to connect in the deepest way, to live authentically -- even how to get even more out of those other life-changing books! It works so well because she doesn't teach each of these things specifically; they just naturally emerge from this incredible process.

Since I read this book a few weeks ago, I:

* Have felt so creative that it's as though every muse is whispering in my ear at once.
* Have felt God working in my life in so many ways.
* Went from feeling that it would take a miracle to fix all the things that are messed up in my life to actually seeing that miracle.
* Have clients rolling into my business no thanks at all to marketing; this process just led me to reconnect with what's valuable about my work, and they started coming!
* Went off an antidepressant I had been on for 2.5 years. A little "glitch" in my health insurance made my refill more expensive than I could afford, and because I was paying attention, thanks to Janet's work, I took it as a sign that I didn't need them anymore.
* Have a more focused vision of my passion in life than I have ever felt before, more concrete than ever, and I've been struggling with this for a long time.
* Have had so many wonderful experiences that I'm surely forgetting some huge ones.
* Have not gotten much rest, honestly, because I have a lifetime of Writing Down Your Soul to catch up on! And in fact, when I try to "do" something "productive" sometimes inspiration will suddenly strike and I'll have to stop to do something like, well, write this review.

Full disclosure: I also joined one of Janet's telecourses since reading the book, and that certainly helped to propel me in this direction, but it's all thanks to Janet's stuff, and it all starts with this extraordinary book.

Read it at your own risk.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for Me 6 May 2014
By Paula - Published on
Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in this purchase. I guess I was expecting writing prompts or a list of questions that could get the journaling juices flowing. Every other word in some of the chapters was God, and I do believe in Him, but the first word in the title is Writing, and there seemed to be very little talk of writing except to discuss all the writing the author did during her traumatic experiences, or buying a cheap pen and notebook and finding a place to write. I would think that goes without saying. For me, I honestly think you can write from your soul without prayer or meditation. If God is everywhere, then God is with me when I'm writing. And, for me, I find writing is a form of meditation anyway.

The author also mentioned that Christina Baldwin jumpstarted the trend of journaling, but I beg to differ. I think you can go farther back to the days of Virginia Woolf and Anais Nin; women authors that encouraged other women to write from their hearts. I didn't hate the book because I'm sure it's a good fit for some people. I just didn't like it for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only for Christians... 8 January 2016

I'm sure this book has been beneficial for many people. But it's only for Christians. The author writes mostly about Christian ideals and scripture, which is fine, but I am Pagan and this book was not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gift for the soul! 8 July 2016
By EAZ - Published on
Verified Purchase
Writing down your soul is one of those few books that I call a gift. A gift that came at the right time when I was exploring my soul and its purpose. I had tons of questions to ask and this book came to my rescue. I realized that I have been conversing my soul prior to that, I just didn't have a name for it except to call it automatic writing. I would pose a question and an answer came rushing down from my gut into my chest and down my arms. The voice had extraordinary wisdom, it felt like the self that is perfect, whole and complete talking to the limited and scared self. Right now, with the help of Janet's work, I am able to establish a practice of daily conversations with the voice which I refer to as my true self. My journaling begins with: Dear true amazing self and then the journey into mystery begins. I am grateful to have experienced soul writing as a spiritual practice that grounds me and allows me to realize that we are all conduit for Divine truth. All that is required of us is to show up, ask and listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A leap of faith for a new way of journaling 4 May 2011
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Verified Purchase
I started out using the Artist's Way practice of morning pages, writing daily each morning. The first year was just three pages of whining, with little insight into myself or my dreams. I burned that journal. The second year I did a core dump of the day first, and then I started writing about things I wanted to do. The more I wrote, the more answers came to me as I wrote and I had solutions to most of my problems by the time I stopped writing. Then there were times when I would read what I wrote and noticed advice I would not have thought of myself - but it was inspirational and amicably resolved the issue I was writing about. This process continued daily for almost a decade - until about three years ago when I stopped writing and focused on the long hours I was putting in on my job.

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. Turn off your phone and computer, no eating or drinking, etc. Let your family know this is your quiet time. Write as fast as you can for about ten to fifteen minutes without distraction (no TV, no radio, no music - no interruptions.) And by write I mean in a journal or on paper. Do not worry about grammar, spelling, editing or anything - just write. Then act on any wisdom you receive.

Now it may take time to clear the emotional clutter. Some people get clear in a few weeks or months. Once I got off my pity party wheel, my life began to change. I began to write things in my journal that helped me personally, helped resolve technical issues at work - you name it, wonderful things began to occur when I connected to my inner Voice - or what I call my own higher self or soul.

Before you make a decision about using this process or buying this book, go to the author's web site and read her newsletters and blog. In addition to this book she also has a thirty day plan you can purchase that coincides with the book. Using this plan you can take it a day at a time, a few pages at a time and within a month have a good writing practice that connects you with your own inner voice.
