Journaling, the act of writing down your thoughts, insights, ideas or visions is a powerful practice. At times, we are blessed and have some extraordinary thoughts brought into our field of awareness. Having a practice of journaling, these ideas will be recorded.
In the moment, we may say, "Oh I'll remember that"! However, writing it down, adding a drawing...or abstract shapes to the page, in the moment after your experience can help you to "capture" the moment. Then when you re-read your journal in the future, your drawing and colors used can bring you back to your experience.
Keeping a notebook and pen on your bedside table, can be very practical. Awakening from a dream, or after sitting in the silence, can be a wonderful time for reflection and for doing an entry in your journal. Having pen, paper and markers nearby is crucial. Staying as still as possible after receiving a message or vision, can help you recall what has been shown to you. With paper and pen, nearby, those insights can be easily recorded.
Colored pencils or markers add a spark to your journaling. Know you do not need to be an artist to journal in color. A simple stick figure drawing or abstract shapes drawn in the moment of your insight, can reveal more than you might think. Experiment! I invite you to see what journaling can do for you?
