Keeping a personal writing journal has a powerful way of healing the soul. When writing about what troubles you and all your immediate thoughts on the subject it creates space for solutions to enter your life. When you write down things that excite you it creates an opportunity to reflect back to that feeling and experience with happiness and bliss. Your greatest teacher will become your personal writing journal as you write down your inner thoughts, special events, future plans, successes, difficult challenges, dark thoughts, bright thoughts, major frustrations and life’s loves in your journal. You will discover more and more about who you are in the world and why your life is the way that it is.
Your personal journal can be the hidden key to self-discovery and personal growth. This is your own story told in your own words. Find some personal space and write down anything and everything that is going on in your head and your heart and let it flow on paper. Personally for me as I battled deep depression and felt I could never talk to anyone about this darkness I found solace in my journal. I chose a beautiful leather bound journal.
This is not to say that everything you write will be remarkable, but occasionally you will surprise yourself. Personally for me, as I began to attempt to unravel my mind, answers slowly came to me. More importantly it gave me a sense of peace and was a great release of negative energy. My journal was the destination where I got to unburden myself of my troubles by writing them down. It is never good or healthy to “bottle” up your emotions especially if they are serious and negative. These feelings and the energy that surrounds them has to be released. If you feel you cannot talk to anyone about these feelings, write them down. You will surprise yourself! This unlocks doors to solutions and healing.
Writing and keeping a personal journal can put you in control of your life and destiny as it gives you the clearest insight into where you are going and where you have come from, and gives you the opportunity to change the path you are on if you don’t like what you see. What you have at this moment will not be what you will ever have for eternity. You can discover what is truly important and rid what is poisonous and useless in your life and put you on that path to happiness and bliss. The three most important words I ever heard.. “Follow Your Bliss”
