Comment on My Synesthesia Experience: the World and the Page by Ula.

Amazing! I always wondered what it’d be like to have synesthesia. Being a writer could be so much more creative. I can’t even imagine what it’s like to have your way of perceiving the world, but it sounds wonderful.
I can’t imagine the sensory overload. But seeing music sounds wonderful. I already oftentimes imagine what music looks like. When I taught art therapy, I would often do exercises of illustrating the mood of a musical piece.
But there are times I could imagine all the sensations could be overwhelming. When I write, for example, I limit the sensory impulses I receive. I write in complete silence (at least I try) with a steady temperature, often wrapped in my favorite blanket.
I can imagine why you feel a need to censor yourself and be understood, but as a writer I hope you put your synesthesia to good use. I’d love to read poems written in your inner language, even if I end up having a hard time understanding them, I’d like to give it a shot.

Why I’m Not at Peace with Memorial Day
I know how that feels.


Why I’m Not at Peace with Memorial Day
Call me naive, but I believe in a world without war. Humans can shift consciousness to peace and love. It can happen within a generation.
This is a beautiful post that I’m sure will reflect the sentiments of many.

I love this. I can feel it on my insides.


How to Stay Connected While Writing Your Trauma
Sometimes I say simple things like:
just be,
let it go, or
you are enough.
Usually, I don’t use words though. I concentrate on my heart space and feel the light and warmth there. I can feel higher power there, and when I go there I am immediately reminded why I am here and what I have been called to do.
The most powerful realization I had in my healing process has been that I am not my story, my past is JUST a story, and that memories have the same power as dreams, so I can choose and pick what stories I identify with.
