Writing to heal

I am a verbal processor. I like to talk about emotional experiences to get clarity. But even better than that, I have found that writing is the best emotional release. The beauty of spilling out my emotions on paper is that I not only avoid boring other people (go ahead and thank me), but alone I can purge my anxious thoughts from my body where they would just fester and grow.  I can then literally see them printed in brutal honesty on the page; and with new eyes, I immediately receive divine clarity. It is as if when I honestly write about my pain, God is sending me answers written by my own hand to heal that pain. It is a sacred experience.
