show notes:

Laura Di Franco bravely teaches us that fear is just a feeling! The six-time published poet, author, and inspirational speaker, and holistic physical therapist, experienced her own true healing by finding her voice, speak up, and sharing that voice out loud. Today, Laura works to coach others through a brave writing process of their own. Now her clients learn to heal the world with their own unique voices.

 

Just Get Started

 

Laura loves to inspire others to “just get to the writing.” Personally, she writes to “Feng Shui her soul.”

 

Did you know, there’s healing power in the art of clearing mental space simply by putting your thoughts on paper? Honestly, when you ignore the rules and declutter your mind, magic happens. Laura uses this knowledge to encourage aspiring writers to simply get started.

 

Being a holistic healer provides a completely unique perspective on the writing process. And, Laura says writers block is just overthinking. By practicing body awareness, you can connect yourself to a place where writing feels more like a flowing state of being. At first, it’s not about what you’re writing; it’s about just doing it.

 

This is certainly a beneficial mindset to carry into all areas of life!

 

Writing to Heal

 

Laura has, personally, mastered the brave writing process. That’s not to say it's been easy; however, it's been consistent. She uses her brave process to push past fear and live in an authentic and impactful way.

 

Her process is boldly centered around awareness and intuition.

 

It’s about becoming aware of your own personal desires, trusting yourself, and unapologetically moving forward. Laura knows, firsthand, the power in listening to your inner voice and remaining in action. Essentially, trust your gut and pay attention to all the small little transformations you experience along the way!

 

Writing is brave!

 

Laura’s work exemplifies true bravery. One of the most powerful actions you can take, in terms of everyday courage, is the act of speaking out loud. In turn, it is so important to celebrate your bravery each and every day. Laura shows us that as a creator, you must move through the fear. The world needs you! The world needs your writing. Your authentic experiences can change someone else's life. Most importantly, it’s valuable to remember your story is about YOU – not anyone else. As a writer, in any capacity, YOU are brave!
