How to Use "The Voice of the Muse Companion"

The basis of my philosophy of writing is something I call “the Muse Stream.” I call it that because when we surrender to our Muse, creativity pours through us as effortlessly as water in a free-flowing stream.

As the meditations on these tracks guide you into writing, allow yourself to write on the Muse Stream. Don’t push your pen across the page. Let it carry you. As you do, you’ll discover worlds of wonder beyond your conscious imagining.

Before you begin working with the meditations, listen to "Mark David’s Rules for Writing" (Track 1). These “rules” provide a foundation that will ease both your meditative journeys and the writing that will follow.

As you listen to a meditation, you may find yourself moving in directions other than those I suggest. Don’t force yourself to stay with my words. At the same time, be aware without self-judgment whether fear or your Muse is the guiding force.

Feel free to repeat any of these meditations whenever you feel the need or the call. Expect to have a different meditative and writing experience each time.

Although you don’t need "The Voice of the Muse" book to have a full experience of these meditations, the book’s tips, inspiration and exercises will enrich your creative journey.

For now, though, queue up the first track, and get ready to write!

~ Mark David Gerson

The Voice of Your Muse

Just start, and trust your inner vision. Just start, and know that the words that long to pour from your heart will find their way onto the page — thought by thought, word by word, breath by breath. For the words are there. The story is there. It exists already — in another dimension, a parallel reality. It exists with a life and an imperative of its own.

Just start, and know the words will flow. Know they will flow without having to know what they are or where they will carry you when you free your story to unfold onto the page.

See the words appear as magically as the lemon-juice ink we used as children to create invisible writing. Hold your page to the light — the light of your heart and the light of your truth — and let your words take shape.

Watch the letters form on the page. See them combine into words, the words join into sentences, the sentences unite into paragraphs and the paragraphs flow from page to page to page until the story is done, until the work is complete and you, who started with nothing but a blank page and faith in the power of your inner vision, are amazed and awestruck by the power of your pen.
