Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

pre-birthday indulgence day
In the meantime, I want to share a piece of the vision statement I created for my fiction work. It came as a result of a meditation exercise from "Voice of the Muse," the book my writing coach, Mark David Gerson, wrote.
I am the drumbeat of your heart. Your heart beats a rhythm and you hear the song, dance to its beat, move with its lyrics. You sing the drumbeat, beat beat, thump thump. The sound of your heart shifts the energy of your soul as you put thoughts on paper. Hear your thoughts. Hear your words. Hear my whispers. I am calling you to me. I am your Siren Song. I am calling you to rise above your persona - the you you think you are. I am calling you to your wisdom. The lush, rich energy of all you have been, all you are and all you are meant to be. The drumbeat of your heart beats every second of every minute of every day, sending you the message you need to hear. Be still and listen. It will sing you your song, your story, your next step, your life.
What is your heart singing to you?
