Healing 2 minutes at a time

When all else fails…it’s time to brain dump

I just started working through The Artist’s Way.  If you are familiar with this book, you know it is filled with amazing techniques and recommendations on how best to clear your head, heart and mind from all the clutter, gunk and struggle we keep within us that prevents our creativity from rising to the surface.

I have been so touched by this book and am passing along the technique that has revolutionized my life so far.

It’s called the 3 minute brain dump.

It is recommended that, upon awakening, you journal free-hand for three minutes.  No judgments, no thought, just write.

Clearing your head in this manner does just that.  It clears your head from the indecision, the struggle, the worry that comes along with life change.


It doesn’t matter if your life change includes grief from the loss of a loved one, a relationship, your health or the passage of time.  This 3 minute brain dump will help you find your own guidance and answers to problems.  It helps you to feel calmer during the day because all the gunk is out of your head.  It doesn’t get replayed in your head because it has already been played out on the page.  It is powerful and has such a calming effect on the rest of the day.  I have found myself feeling more peaceful, more centered, more grounded and more ready to feel alive.  I hope the same thing happens for you this week and I can’t wait for you to tell us all about it.

Did you 3 minute brain dump?  What happened? Please share with our community so we can cheer you on for completing this week’s task and support you.  It’s a daily practice so I’d love to take attendance this week.  If you brain dump, leave a message!  “I did it!”  “One day down” Let’s see how many days this week we can get our community posting and clearing your minds and hearts.  Think about how much healing we can do in this week alone.

We can’t wait to see your posts and celebrate you!

Sending you big love!

Love and Blessings,
