How Does writing help you connect?

Writing helps me connect to the ... inner me, if that makes sense. It's like, when i write, i lose the outer part to myself and become indulged with the art of writing; like a second brain. The same goes for poetry: I get into modes where writing becomes my aura everything. Writing helps me connect to memories as well. For example, I was trying to remember the name of a book, so I wrote out a past memory of me cleaning my bookshelf and BOOM, I remembered the name of the book.
