Do those with writer’s block need more energy?

It’s an honest question for me because I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.  It is easier to write on good days when I have more energy.

I also use a medical device for pain, the Alpha-Stim which uses a 9v battery, so no wide effects.  I think it operates by giving the body more energy.

I thought of other things that give energy.

On a vertical axis, on top, transcendence. Prayer, meditation, chanting, drumming and ritual are ways that I do get more energy.  Also below, on the vertical axis: depth psychology, Gendlin’s Focusing dreamwork, Process Work (Mindell) and other ways of accessing deeper material in also on the vertical axis.

On the horizontal axis, on one end I place intimacy, sexual intimacy, friendship, love. At the other end of the horizontal axis, fun, play, art, dance, literature and music, communion and joy.

I suspect that by boosting energy we can write more easily, with fewer blocks.
