If you are interested in writing for UPLIFT, please take a look at some of the hundreds of articles on the site and reflect upon how your voice could work best in this format:-
- Create what you are passionate about & inspired by, coming from a place of authenticity, joy and humility.
- Aim to create inspiring, positive & uplifting stories that have an impact, that can enrich peoples lives and foster deep inner change. Do not come from a fear-based or negative viewpoint.
- Share with love, respect, humility and without attachment to external outcomes.
- Invite people to awaken to their true nature, that we are all parts of a whole. Do not perpetrate a “them vs. us” mentality, this perception of separateness is just an illusion.
- Invite people to see they are divine, with no need to fix anything as if we are broken, or solve anything as if there is a ‘problem’. Do not preach to people, telling them how to be, or what to do.
- Invite people to be of service to the whole that is greater than the self; to explore, discover and participate in a love affair with the unknown.
- Invite people to not get lost in the illusion, but to wake up to the truth. Do not pander to the reader, reinforcing or enabling them to ‘feel-good’ about existing beliefs or ways of being based upon this illusion.
