We are all going through a major shift in our human consciousness. We are raw and scared and exhausted and questioning life as we once knew it. We are busy thinking about yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Our minds are full and we suddenly have found some extra time on our hands.
If you are like me you have run through every set of emotions and run in circles trying to figure out which direction to go with all that is going on in our world. Personally, I am very empathic and have had a very hard time re-finding my balance listening to the news and after our 5.7 earthquake here in Utah. I wasn’t even sure how to find my thoughts again for my next podcast and was lacking focus on my business. We all have our own story for how we are coping and how we are finding our strength. Our time is being spent differently. Things are all shaken up. How are you using this time?
Maybe you are using this time to re-align with a better future, taking classes, or updating your resume. Perhaps now you are planning, calculating, and thinking about your next move on the other side of that open door. Maybe you are thinking more about aligning with your passion and your purpose?
I know that as an author of several books I find my peace in writing. How about you? If you now suddenly have a lot of free time on your hands…have you ever considered writing a book? Maybe time has been your primary excuse? Maybe now you have gained more clarity on your life purpose or it’s time to re-work your path or tell your story. Are you healing wounds in this time? Are you opening up old ones? What has this time brought into focus for you?
Hi, I’m Nicole Gabriel. I’m the author of multiple books, a book designer and I’ve just built a great online book publishing training course too. You know, I love working with clients that are walking through a great transition of self…finding their purpose, standing in their becoming, sharing where they’ve been and where they are going, and looking to position themselves to help and heal others as they do the same. I love working with dreamers, entrepreneurs, story-tellers, mystics, and healers. I love hearing the stories and helping new authors bring them to life through a book. I love the idea of a metamorphosis occurring on the other side of this quarantine. I love the idea of deep soul searching, finding oneself, and stepping into a newly discovered greatness of personal self! Imagine using this time to dig deep and come out soaring like a phoenix from the flames! How many times in life do we get this down time?
I challenge you to dig deep into self and begin writing your manuscript!
Right now is an incredible time to write! Seriously! Let’s not dwell on what might be or has been but more on what could be!
There has never been a time like this in our history where we are forgiven more for needing a time out than full time in and on the clock. Think of all the time you are saving on the commute alone!
While we sit home, imagine what can be accomplished in our world when the earth revives and Mother Nature resets and the air is clean and in this gift in time we are able to sit in our deep thoughts of self. This is a time when our heart bleeds and the earth heals. Bleed out onto the pages all that passes before you. Allow yourself to be pissed off, excited, reflective, nurturing, and scared. Imagine emerging from this cocoon after birthing a book. How would this change your life?
As all good pregnancies go, this is a time for nurturing the mind, body, and soul. Imagine how the time could pass with your thoughts between the pages of your manuscript!
We are humans in an unprecedented time in our history and wow the stories that can be gathered and told! Each one of us is facing deep contemplation and each one of us has an opportunity to leave our mark. Imagine leaving behind a legacy for generations to come while affecting people deeply in these new challenging times. I love this quote from the little girl that left behind a legacy larger than life:
“Writing in a diary is a really strange experience for someone like me. Not only because I’ve never written anything before, but also because it seems to me that later on neither I nor anyone else will be interested in the musings of a thirteen-year old school girl. Oh well, it doesn’t matter. I feel like writing.”
— Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
We all have a story to tell and a life to live. And no matter our situation we have no idea where our days will end… and also where they will begin. We have suddenly found ourselves living in challenging times but it is today that matters most. As Ekhart Tolle said:
“People don’t realize that now is all there is: there is no past or future except as memory or anticipation in your mind.”
— Ekhart Tolle
As we wait to leave our homes and return to a new normal we can channel our energy into a project that inspires us so greatly we don’t even know the time has passed. Writing a book is healing and transformative and I personally have never come out on the other side of a book the same person I went in as. In fact, writing gave me a voice I didn’t even know I had. I read fun a quote recently that said “writing is like show business for shy people.” Whether you’re shy or not, you have a voice and you have had an entire lifetime of experiences to share.
Let’s talk about this with some more detail…
I prefer to teach my authors how to write with purpose. Share the stories but give the book purpose. Align it with a goal. Can you tie it to your business or use it to grow your personal platform? I can guide you before you get too far along.
I want to help you understand the publishing industry so you can align accordingly.
Let me help you understand why writing a book with the goal of becoming a best-seller is great but, a rather lofty goal that honestly only satisfies the ego as a self-published author. Seriously, it really shouldn’t be your goal! You need a strong platform to bank on as book sales alone many only get you a return on your investment but not a strong profit to bank on. You need another objective. When you understand the greater picture you can write with purpose.
With this in mind, I have built an online training program to guide you on the entire process. My program contains numerous downloads and helpful advice that will align you better with your overall goals and objectives for writing. It’s my goal to shift your thinking about the publishing industry…to not go after one time sales but to go after aligning a book with a strong platform.
As a book publishing coach and book designer I can help you with each step along the way. Instead of turning you over to a coach that’s never written a book to guide you, like many publishing systems do, I will be your only coach. We can do a little one on one to get you started and the online program will guide you through from there. Every step of the book publishing process is learned here.
Have you ever said to yourself that you have so much to teach and you have to figure out a way to get it out there but you just don’t know how… A book is an amazing opportunity to share your voice and all of the things that you have learned over your lifetime! It gets you in the door and on the stage!
There is no greater time than now to write your book! Use this downtime to reflect upon all that you have to share with the world and compile it into a manuscript. On the other side of this moment in time you will have a book! What a great incubation time to morph into your becoming!
Go on over to our website and grab some of the downloads to get started. I look forward to working with you on your book project!
I wish you peace, love, and light during these challenging times!
