How Do You Find Your Writing Voice?

I work with female entrepreneurs who plan to write non-fiction spiritual or self-help books with meaning and intention. Have you read Rise Sister Rise, To Be Soul Do Soul, You Are a Badass, Big Magic, you know what books I’m talking about then? Books written by women for women who believe anything is possible and want to inspire others to do the same.

 

The question is, why haven’t you written your book already? I know why. Time, creative flow, direction, doubt, not clear about what your writing voice actually is yet, accountability (that’s a big one). And the usual, fear of the unknown. I don’t know how many times I hear my lovely fempreneurs say, “Oh my gosh, I am so writing my book this year!” And the year passes and there may have been a solid attempt at writing it but the reality is, like most big things we want to do in life, without having someone there to guide the process of a super big undertaking like writing a book, the words will stay lost inside of you until you decide to take this seriously.

 

How do you find your writing voice? I’m totally giving you the no BS answer. You write. Ugh…I know, not what you wanted to hear right? But it’s the truth! If you aren’t writing I’m shaking my head and thoughtfully thinking to myself, ‘A writer who doesn’t write, yep, that’s not going to work.’

 

So what do you do about it? Ready for more non-BS, hehe…you hire a writing coach. Another not-so-glamorous approach to writing! Writing can be magical and touched by divine inspiration yet it is also structural, technical, systematic. I teach you how to show up for yourself in this process and tap into the divine nature of your voice it is freaky. What do you really want to say that you aren’t’ saying? What is locked away inside of your voice? Why aren’t you writing your heart out? What is up with the writer’s block? Yep, all of that mixed with a lot of love and fierce intuition.

 

Please, don’t write another one of those super lame “free ebooks” that everyone has done and create something meaningful with your words. At the heart of why I do this is because I love words, because books changed my life, and because if I can help a woman tap into her writing voice in a way that strikes a chord with other women and maybe even lands her a publishing deal which means more of humanity is impacted by soul work then I know I am fulfilling a part of my gifting.

 

So how does this whole process work? Excellent question! We start with a curiosity call to see if you and I can dance baby! Do we jive? Do I understand you? Is your vision for your book viable? All of that will happen in a 20-minute call you can book here. At the end of the call if we are totally vibing and you are ready to dive into this process I will let you know about the investment to do this with me and set up your account to start booking in your creative calls so you can get on track to actually writing your book!

 

This will be fun I assure you and also heart-opening, tearful, full-on spirit-vibing and sisterhood creating, and even raw and painful on all levels! Writing is like a mirror to the soul, wounded and whole.

Believe in the Rhythm of Your Soul

And just like that, she didn’t need to be seen.
She didn’t need the acknowledgment,
The looks, likes or loves.
She felt within herself the truth that her time had come.
She was energy and like the flowers she passed on her daily walks,
She blossomed whether anyone cared or not.
She blossomed because she could,
And she was beautiful like all the flowers that had gone before her.
Adding to the whole of creation and dancing under the sun.

Sealed with love,

I want to write about soul. I want to write about truth. I want to unravel, dismantle all the false ways we live our lives. I want us to play with our shadows and resist the urge to shrink, downsize our life, play at a fraction of our ability. I want us to remember what we are connected to so we never forget our birthright. 

Come home. Please. If you have been wandering out there in the world for too long and you long for a place of solace, come home. The place you seek is already inside of you. The cocoon of shelter you long for is a deep breath away. Question the systems around you and choose the ones you want to participate in. What someone else does is not what you have to do. When was the last time you asked yourself, “What do I want?”

Can you answer that question from the voice of recognition? The voice that echoes in the caverns of your soul? Have you given yourself the freedom and the liberty to explore without restriction? Come home. When the world aches around you and within you, where do you go? 

There are angels and lightworkers, preachers and monks, teachers and wise seekers and all of us/you/them have an offering for you. Every day we are being offered the opportunity to be a part of the miracle of life. Every day we are given the chance to change and start walking towards the desires of our heart. Why wouldn’t today be the perfect day to dive into your soul?

I implore you. I feel you. I hear you. Even when life is feeling chaotic and fractured, you carry within you the sanctity of home. When will you rest long enough to feel the earth beneath your feet and ground yourself into what you know?

And with this message, I ask that you seal your worries and speak to them from your heart. I ask that the emotions that want to frantically explode out of you be guided by your soul and you learn the art of communicating from within the expanse of the wisdom within you. Surrender beautiful child. Adorn yourself with light and understand your shadows. Nothing is denied to you, now is the time to rise.

 

 

 


Keeping you in the loop about what is happening in my small corner of the world.

The Life Intentionally Summit is happening this September and I would love to meet those who feel the call to do something more with the short time they have on the planet. Tap into something bigger than yourself and come to listen to me and other women speak live at the Life Intentionally Summit. 

In the Bedroom w/Cassie Jeans – words that awaken the soul podcast is on its 10th episode and I am in awe of the beauty of what is pouring out from this interaction with the Divine. Listen to the latest episode here.

Ireland – a land I know I have been to because I can feel her soil even though physically I have not been graced to walk her land yet. I am planning a writing retreat for the New Year and I am putting this on your radar with two intentions. One – I would love to hear from you if you are planning to attend. Two – if you are planning to attend I would love to know what you would love to do with the time there. I have oodles of ideas but what you are craving is important for me to know as well. Email me at hello@cassiejeans.com with the subject: Ireland – fill me in on the details of what you would love to dive into.

Oh! And I am writing a solo book, feeling that it will have similar vibes to this blog and I have come across a tool that I adore that is helping me put together a book plan (like a business plan but for books). Publishers, literary agents are requiring people to do this now. If you are serious about writing a book and you want to receive an advancement to write it I am HIGHLY recommending this book plan. You can learn more about it here – Big Beautiful Book Plan.

So much love for you dreamers. Thank you for spending time with me here. xo.

Be Heard

BE HEARD//.
It is important to be heard,
It is important to let your voice clash and resound and expand from within your cells.
It is important to speak as if thunder were coming from your very vocal chords.
Be heard.

This phrase washes over you because for too long silence was your refuge,
Stifling your insides from growing but this kept you alive and safe until…now.

Until now in this very moment, you feel the chords loosen.
You hear the words in your head bubble up, you feel your senses wrap themselves around your words and this time, there is a command in the tone of your voice.

This time, the quiver is replaced with a calm assurance from within.
This time, the wildness within you is leading, this time, intuition Herself is speaking.
This time, the words flow.

Take delight in this expanse dear one.
Beloved, you are home.

Sealed with light,


I have had many conversations with women about this topic and so many of us refer to this as ‘coming home to oneself.’ This feeling is one of the sweetest ones we can experience because on many levels it means we have made peace with who we are. The fight to fit into something has gone and instead of the internal struggle of feeling voiceless, we start to recognize our own power.

We see that so much of what we were holding onto for fear of being seen will ultimately be the very thing that frees us from the walls of protection we formed around our gifts, our voice, our sensuality, our bodies, our desires, our dreams, our sovereignty.

Whatever the gifts are that dwell within us is something we can trust wholeheartedly. No matter what was ever spoken into our lives, we have full permission to step boldly towards the longing of our hearts, towards the passion for living that brings us out of despair and into light. This coming home is rooted in intuition.

The feeling that something is off isn’t an accident. The feeling of mundane living is like a cautionary flag placed out in bodies of water to let swimmers know about what is happening with the tide. Trying to swim over shallow water can leave you bumped and bruised, bleeding, and scarred. Why continue to succumb to this environment? What is the benefit? The benefit is often familiarity and fear. Fear to swim somewhere new, fear of letting go of the story that tells us to stay small. It is easy to talk ourselves out of trying something new and unfamiliar. Really question the environment that surrounds you right now. Challenge the truth of what you are currently living in. Does it line up with your soul?

As we enter into our own full and divine expression there is an automatic ripple effect that rises in others. Sometimes, this ripple creates love and longing in another person to also begin to participate fully in their own life, their own gifts. Other times this effect creates jealousy and bitterness, the desire to rise is there but mixed with it is the disbelief that it is possible and so, instead of support sometimes the reaction comes from that person’s connection to their self-worth. Both though are blessed. Both create space for choice and if the ripples you are creating are presenting a choice to another this is a good thing no matter the way it is being expressed in someone else’s life.

Be heard. What do you long to say? To stand for? What would it feel like to fully express yourself? 

You are love(d).


Beginning August 1 I will be working closely with a client and will be her inline/intuitive editor. We have monthly 1:1 calls set for the next 5 months and a goal to finish a 30,000-word book by December.

It took five minutes to figure out a daily system that would allow her to continue her full-time work, take time for important self-care/healing, and still meet her deadlines.

Instead of saying “I want to write a book,” and then going it alone she chose to bring me into her realm of genius and allow me to share my intuitive editing gifts.

A book is not a solo project. It takes a lot of eyes, people who are in your corner and at the same time people who are willing to say when something works and when it just flat out doesn’t.

I love editing. I’m freaky good at it and I am continuing to dig deep into what publishers want, how to put together book proposals, and what can be done while you are writing that showcases you as an author people want to follow.

I’m not afraid to say it like it is and also, hold space for the courage it takes to share stories that are often vulnerable pieces of people’s lives.

Currently, I can take in 3 writers at a time for this service. If you want to have a mentor/intuitive editor/passionate leader holding space and guiding the writing process for you intimately let me know. There are only two spots available to start with me in August.

Send me a message here and we can connect on a call. You are loved and infinitely supported.  #spiritualediting
