Last weekend I had an intuitive reading. An intuitive reading, if you’re not familiar with the term, is the same as a psychic reading or a medium reading.
The whole idea of spiritualism, spirit guides and guardian angels is something that has interested me for a long time. I don’t buy into it 100% but I have had a couple of things happen in the last year or so that have me believing more than ever that there’s something to all of this stuff and I’d like to learn more before making up my mind conclusively.
I know a lot of you will think I’m completely nuts, and that’s okay. There are days that I would agree with you!
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been reading a book entitled Ask Your Guides by Sonia Choquette which explains the differences between guardian angels and spirit guides and how communication with them works.
According to the book, it’s perfectly acceptable to call upon a deceased expert in a field where you want help or advice.
So, for example, if you’re having an electrical problem and you had an electrician in the family who has passed on, you can still ask for their help and guidance with fixing it. So keep all of that in mind and let’s discuss your favourite writers. Are you a big fan of Ernest Hemmingway? How about Shakespeare or Emily Bronte or maybe Agatha Christie?
Just imagine for a minute that you could channel your favourite deceased writer and ask for their guidance. Come on, we writers have imaginations, well at least fiction writers do, so I know you can do this. Close your eyes and just imagine the chance to have a chat, perhaps telepathically, with Laura Ingalls Wilder or maybe Charles Dickens. Even if you don’t believe in the possibility of any of this happening, isn’t it an interesting thought?
What would your favourite writer say to you? How would she or he evaluate your writing? Would they be impressed or would they suggest major changes? Maybe they’d be in awe of your efforts? If you could ask them anything, what would it be?
Who Do You Write Like?
Maybe you already write like somebody famous? Check out I Write Like. If you copy and paste a sample of your writing a box on this site and click on the Analyze button, it will tell you who you write like.
I copied this blog post into the Analyzer and apparently I write like H. P. Lovecraft. Why not copy one of your own blog posts or a section of your book into the Analyzer to find out what it says about your writing? Let me know in the comments. And, if you’ve channeled a famous writer, I’d love to know about that, too!
