 A Note From Lucille Olson

The Value of Journaling

   Journaling is a form of meditation where we spend quiet time pouring our thoughts out on paper. It creates a connection with the divine within us and clears the neural pathways for creative thoughts to come through. As we write about our dreams and wishes, the universe can begin making the connections to make them come to fruition.  The hunches and intuition that comes  to us through our writing is Spirit's way of guiding us.

   When we are journaling, we are giving ourselves attention. We are showing up for ourselves! When we are honest about our thoughts and feelings, we gain clarity about what we value and why. We become more authentic in the world.

   Our thoughts can come from our source, or from our ego or ego programming. Tuning in to the thoughts from source and acting upon them strengthens our connection with source. Likewise, when we identify thoughts of ego's origin, it helps to weaken their hold over our lives.

   Journaling helps sweep away the cobwebs of our thinking. When we get our thoughts and feelings out on paper, we can see them as our programming. What we are telling ourselves is our belief system on display. We can then ask ourselves, "Is what I am telling myself the truth or in alignment with Spirit?" We may find that much of what we tell ourselves is what we learned from others that may not be helpful or truthful. By cleansing our mind of useless clutter, our thinking becomes more clear and focused.

   When we write about our fears and resentments, we acknowledge those feelings and allow for healing to take place. Old wounds acquired earlier in life may come to the surface ready for forgiveness and healing. Naming our feelings honestly can have great therapeutic value.

   When writing about our hopes and aspirations, we are creating a pathway where we can walk in the direction of our dreams. Journaling as a spiritual practice brings about a steady improvement in our quality of life.
