Dear diary …

When I work with clients, I always encourage them to keep a journal. Whether its a dream journal, a gratitude journal or a process journal, when you put pen to paper you are connecting with your inner thoughts and feelings.

As you experience intuitive moments, jot them down in a journal. Note the times you felt your intuition reaching out to you, what the event was, how you acted on it, how it felt and the outcome. Learn to recognise when it happens so you can then be aware of it and start to look out for it.

Your journal is also an integral tool in your dreaming toolkit. It is a record of your inner journeys and your quest for self-understanding. Since most of us forget our dreams within ten minutes of awakening, it can be a daunting task to try and reconstruct your dreams later in the day without having recorded your dreams in a journal.

Recording our feelings, experiences and dreams can help to improve the power of our inner-guidance system. It teaches us to trust our intuition, and to listen to our inner wise self.

To begin a journal

  1. At the beginning of each journal, I like to paint a picture, with words and with images, of just where I am in life: Where I’m living, what I’m reading, things I’m learning, simplicities my heart is taking joy in. With scraps, quotes, and meaningful images that represent my season of life, I create a meaningful blend of these things on the first pages of my journal.
  2. A piece of writing that has held meaningful significance me over the last few months will typically take prominence in the collage … quotes from Rumi are often a favourite of mine.
  3. I’ll finish it off with the start and end journal entry dates, signifying when the journal was used.

It is difficult indeed to carve out time for creativity. But it is never in vain. The joy that comes in looking back upon these pages, the meaning that forms from simply visualising these memories, and the gift of gaining valuable insights from my Soul and my guides.

I’d love you to share your journalling tips ….
