We are VERY GLAD YOU ARE HERE. A lot of us were quietly hoping, and...well, this is such a grand thing to see. Just grand.

Welcome to the glorious Substacky madness.

Writing some of these letters to myself in the midst of chemo was so powerful in a time I really struggled to hear any loving truth from inside myself. I’m so glad you’re here and sharing more about this practice ♥️

I love hearing this!

I have experienced swimming in this ocean of love you speak of, basking in its warmth and buoyant embrace. We are love. We come from love and return to it when we are finished this earth journey.

Love letters to oneself sound beautiful. I will add this to my daily morning pages.

Thank you. 💞🙏💞

Screaming with joy at your presence here. I’m posting my first newsletter this upcoming Monday where I talk about your stance on originality. It helped me funnel the courage to say something even when my fears about originality come up.

Ohh the timing .. yesterday I re listened to an old podcast you did years ago with Jonathan from the good life project, immediately thought to look whether you were here (this wasn't posted yet) and saw the "coming 3rd September". So excited to connect in this way and read some more of your magic. Warmest welcome xxx

I am a little lost for words and more than a little star struck. Almost not brave enough to leave a comment.. I read Big Magic for the first time a few months ago and it felt like it spoke straight to my soul. To be here now for this is magic 💛

Getting goosebumps remembering my initial reaction to Big Magic. I listened to Liz read it… truly felt it down to my bones.

It’s truly an amazing read isn’t it? 💛

I’ve listened to it I think three times now. Heading out on a long drive this fall, so I’m sure Liz will be with me on the trip.

Early this year, reading your books, I was already helping myself to great portions of your lovely words as if you had baked love, grace and candour into my favourite puddings and told me it was an all-you-can-eat deal!

I’m so looking forward to these letters of love! My mother kept a log of how much it cost to raise me and, as she reckoned it up,would tell me all the other (better) things the money could have been spent on... well, I’m far along the road from that, but it’s hard to silence the echoes completely. Thank you so much for your work, Elizabeth: I cherish the life lessons and you make me laugh!

Yooo... this is crazy! I just put out a very hesitant post on the immense amount of love letters I write. Pretty sure it was the same day. Ain't no coincidences. Keep it up! 🥰🤗

Can’t wait to read your newsletter! I loved “Big Magic” and your interview about how you use IFS. It was especially awesome to learn that you do one of the things that I also do - ask in my journal what God/Love wants me to know, then write the response I get when I listen to that voice above the others in my head.

Made my week to learn you had joined Substack. I was sad when I learned you delayed your novel - though I understand why. I'm glad there's another way to read your beautiful words.
