WELCOME TO THE BOOKISH ORACLE, my new weekend feature for the week ahead. There is a section for authors and one for readers. If you would like some guidance and enjoy some spiritual inspiration to combine your reading, writing and esoteric interests, you're in the right place!
This reading is for the week starting on 6th September 2021. It is meant as a general guidance and my advice to you is, take from it whatever feels in alignment with you and discard the rest. You are always your own highest authority! Tirza xxx
Having trouble creating a mood or having to digest what you’ve just written? Find a colour that has the feel of the scene. When you have found it, feel into it. Find the words to describe the colour, the mood.
Then start writing (or “digesting”). You will find that this can be very helpful. The visual artistically talented my want to create a mood board in the colour(s) you have chosen with pictures that represent the scene and characters.
Next, listen to your characters. Really listen. Don’t pull the strings but sit back, observe, listen and feel what they are feeling. How do they talk, express themselves, how is their body language? How do they view the world? BECOME your characters.
And then write when you really, truly understand them. This is also a great exercise for those who love to plan and work with the logical side of their brain mainly. Let go of it, go by your intuition. Let it guide you and move your hand or fingers when you’re writing/typing. Trust in the process.
If you are a reader, why not decide which colour represents how you feel right now? Then go through your pile of TBRs or book recommendations and pick a book whose cover is dominant in that colour. You may want to get it as an audiobook because this week, listening is a big thing. But it also means, listening to the characters you’re reading or hearing about. Really listen. How and why do they speak and act the way they do?
Try to see and understand the world from their point of view without judgement. How do the characters and the story make you feel? Use your intuition to follow your inner guidance about what touches you and explore why.
