just sharing this article i wrote over 10 years ago.... still some helpful information~~
One of the tools I frequently use is that of journaling.
So very often there are things that are left unsaid,
perhaps we just can’t find the right words,
or we feel intimidated in that moment. There are also events in our lives, experiences we may have that we may feel we have no one to share with for what ever reasons…
fear, embarrassment, shame, guilt the list is probably endless…
these very words and thoughts that we hold inside… the things we never speak of… become what I refer to as the monsters in our head.
They go round and round our mental thoughts, & get in the way of our living.
They are the endless stream of mental chatter… the monkey mind..
Whatever you may call it, or perhaps you’re just becoming aware of these thoughts and words that don’t/ won’t seem to go away.
When we choose to grow spiritual, and we move forward on our path..
We are sending these intentions for growth and healing out to the universe…
When we follow this with acts of purposeful intentions…like journaling..
The universe will support us in our actions.
This is where journaling comes in….. Doing what I call
How this process works is as follows…
Get a plain spiral note book…nothing fancy!
Every day for 4-8 weeks write 3 or more pages.
You may think you have nothing to write…
Then for three pages…write I have nothing to say..
Or look around you and just start by writing what you see…
What ever you write… WRITE…. Drain your brain…
Write letters to people who you feel have wronged you,
Or that you may have wronged somehow… you never have to send them,
But getting the words out is very healing.
Forgive yourself or forgive who ever you may need to in your life.
Get the monsters out… clear out the icky stuff!
say what you have never said,
but may have wanted to.
Also once it’s on the page…. Do not re-read it…
Remember…. You’re getting rid of the words…
You’re house cleaning!!! Big time... For your body and soul!
Do this faithfully! At the end of the 4-8 week time frame
Have a celebration…. Crumble all the pages up and burn them!!!
Dance around the fire… let all the ickies go
Be free…. As you do this, you become clearer.
The clarity and the creativity are activated….
You’ll feel fresher. Lighter…….
Do this for yourself, as a way to nurture you!
As away to become your ~Realself!
