Did you know that we can heal ourselves through journaling?
Scientific research shows that journaling can increase our mental well-being. It can improve our sleep, help us be more in the moment, make us more aware of our emotions and improve our communication skills. It can raise our self-confidence and boost our immune system. Researchers in New Zealand even found out we can heal our physical injuries faster if we regularly write about our life events.
I love journaling. I see it as a tangible method that can help us release the energy of our emotions. Putting down our pen on the paper, and just writing and allowing thoughts, feelings, and energy to pour through us without judgment or fear is the way we can share our story and start walking on the path of healing.
When we turn to a journal to express ourselves we can identify the cause of the problem, as well as discover solutions on how to fix it.
We can obtain clarity on a situation and connect with our higher self for advice and knowledge.
So in essence, journaling is a creative outlet that not only channels your intuition but supports our mental health and overall wellbeing.
Whenever you encounter difficult situations, use journaling to view your scenarios from a larger scale by writing down the experience in detail. This will encourage self-reflection and self-improvement as you view your challenge with a fresh lens of perception.
When you learn to look at your problems from afar, you can see the truth and analyze your thoughts in a cohesive order. As you explore your emotions and feelings around a subject you’ll release the energy from your mind, and release any stuck energy blockages from the body.
To raise your self-awareness I recommend you to:
And of course, accept the experience just the way it happened. Acknowledge that you acted according to your level of awareness, and others acted according to their level of awareness. Accept that whatever happened is in the past.
When we express our emotions and thoughts through journaling, we are sharing our story and therefore, we’re healing. The more self-aware we are the better we are at understanding how our actions affect us and how they affect other people. The better your understanding of what happened, the more you will be able to grow from it.
The more we connect with ourselves and reflect on how we feel, the clearer the voice of our intuition becomes. Make journaling a part of your daily practice, as a safe space for sacred time with yourself. A time to honor yourself with the respect you deserve. Allowing the words to flow through you without judgment is when you’ll create magic.
You’ll be able to identify what brings you joy or sadness, and you’ll find deep acceptance of the challenges you’re facing.
