Over the past few years, I’ve come to learn that there’s no right way to journal. It’s a personal and private practice. Sometimes you have to use different ice breakers to even start. Other times, I can’t wait to let my pen tear up the pages.
One thing is for sure, writing is a crucial coping tool we use to express things that are in our subconscious, or to release things we can’t say to anyone else, or to just work stuff out on our own. Studies have also shown that the emotional release from journaling lowers anxiety and stress, and induces better sleep.
I’ve used journaling to help remove blocks, figure out what’s bugging me, and even as a way to speak to my intuition for guidance. I do that by simply writing down a question I need clarity on and I wait for a response from my intuition. I don’t rush it, I just wait until the answer I need rings Truth into my soul. Sometimes I have to keep asking different questions as I get down to the root of what I’m really looking for.
