Reflections from my rear view mirror and some bright morning drops !!!

Each one of us is given a seed- the seed of life. In it are the unique human endowments that separate us from other earthly species. We have self-awareness, conscience, imagination and independent will. Our choice is to either sow that seed- nourish it, let it flourish to its fullest or we can simply neglect it, let it wither and die to become just part of the soil. The choice is ours. The kind and quality of life we are to live is a function of the choices we make.

Journaling is defined as "Think it and Ink it". It's a process of stimulating your mind, body and heart and then capturing the resulting thoughts on paper, disk, canvass or even wood. 

Different journaling tools and exercises encourage us to think in different ways. Once we capture these thoughts in paper we can explore different sides of our nature. We can identify beliefs that hold us back. We can glimpse our potential and then monitor ourselves realizing it. We can discover insights, creativity and wisdom we didn't know we had.  It's mostly done through writing,  (even doodling), but it can also be done through art or painting.

How journaling works...

" The positive thing  about writing is that you connect with yourself in the

deepest way; and that's HEAVEN. You get a chance to know who you are, to know what you think. You begin to have a relationship with your mind."

 

When we understand how journaling works, we are better able to use it skillfully to meet our needs. Here are some insights as to why many effective individuals consider journaling to be "the best hidden secret to success.

 

  • Slow your mind down so you can see how you THINK.

Journaling quickly captures our flighty  thoughts and feelings on paper. Unless we write them down, thoughts too easily disappear. (We think about 60,000  thoughts per day. How many are you aware of? Once we can see what we're thinking, we can learn how to think. Then we can use different journaling exercises to learn to think in different ways. 

  • Quadruple your learning by stimulating senses.

If we only hear information, within a day or two we typically recall 10% to 20% of what we heard. If we write it down we can double our recall from 20% to 40% because we can now see it.

  • Work with thoughts on paper.

Journaling draws information out of your heads and onto paper or disk, or canvass. When we can visually see the information, we can do more with it.

  • Create a bigger picture.

Ever tried to burn just one log or twig? It doesn't work very well. But pile up many logs or twigs and you'll get a roaring blaze.  The same principle applies to our thoughts.​

  • Change your perspective.

Have you ever been lost in a dense, dark forest? Usually you can't see the forest for the trees. In overwhelm, we get confused. Well, imagine flying over that forest...being able to see it in its entirety, in the context of its surroundings. The higher the perspective brings new clarity and understanding.

  • Stay objective in subjective worlds.

In life, we tend to perceive that we are our thoughts, emotions, feelings so we can experience them more objectively. It helps to stay conscious and more aware of our will, ethics, identity, responsibility and integrity.

  • Know yourself better.

We get deeper sense of who we are when we can study our thoughts and feelings on paper. In our written thoughts, we can explore different sides of nature. We can identify beliefs that holds us back. We can get in touch with our innate talents and gifts and then see ourselves share them. We can discover our own wealth of insights, imagination, creativity and wisdom. 

  • Connect with our subconscious mind.

It's not hard to change our conscious minds but changing our subconscious minds is a different story. And it's our subconscious that controls much of what happens in our lives.  It is a vast storehouse of limiting beliefs, reactive emotions, and old ineffective patterning and self-centered programming. It is also our  gateway to our intuitive and divine connection. Unfortunately, though, the baggage we carry from our past filters and distorts our higher guidance.
