Have you ever felt locked up in writer’s block?
You committed to write.
That due date stares at you with reproach. That blog post is due TODAY!
Or that writing deadline for your upcoming book nags at you.
Or you have a paper or research project due for school?
Or perhaps, you have a vague idea of a book you need to write. But you still haven’t carved out the words on paper.
If you know my story, a writer’s block led me to
Carolyn Cooper’s Simply Healed method
I felt relief when my friend, a Simply Healed practitioner, worked with me over the phone to release my resistance to writing and completing my dissertation.
Here’s a few tips to help you dissolve writer’s block:
1. Visioning Your Success
Write down your vision statement that is the outcome of breaking through your writer’s block. Do you want to be a NY Times Bestselling author? Do you want to drive up traffic to your blog to increase visibility? Do you want to earn a degree? Ground your action in your vision. Write your vision statement in the present tense with the feeling that accompany this creation.
Imagine yourself realizing your vision. When you connect to your inspiration, you tap into the energy to motivate you to write.
2. Tap Out the Block
Check out Tapping as a simple way to release the block. You tap on a series of acupressure points while repeating:
“Even though I don’t feel like writing, I love myself, and I am a good person.”
Continue with a series of tapping. After each round, you can add a different variation of the negative thought that is keeping you blocked.
For examples, you can search on YouTube for some videos on tapping.
3. Visioning Q’s
Visioning Q’s are affirmations that you rephrase as a question. You create affirmations that, if true, will lead to manifesting your vision. Often, these affirmations are the exact opposite of what your subconscious believes to be true.
Below are the Visioning Q’s that I use to help me shift when I am feeling uninspired or face a writer’s block.
Here, I refer to blog writing, but you can replace “blog” with whatever writing project you need to complete.
Feel free to tailor these Visioning Q’s to your current challenge.

Thank you for sharing them! 🙂

Beautiful post!! So helpful. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration, Tera!!
My pleasure, Julie… I am curious to know the outcome.
I love the Qs! I can connect with those and know that my subconscious will get to work right away to bring answers to my awareness. You do great work Tera!
AND, thanks for the ‘shout-out’ to SimplyHealed 🙂
Hi Carolyn, Thank you. I am for grateful your work and the good Simply Healed is bringing to the world. I’ve been excited about these Visioning Qs to share with my clients because it is homework that they can practice to create a new thought pattern. I know you teach (I’ll paraphrase): “With Simply Healed, we sweep out the cobwebs, but it is the client’s job to kill the spider.” I find that the Visioning Qs helps them take charge of “killing the spider.”
