“Journaling is like whispering to one’s self and listening at the same time.”-Mina Murray
Today, I got a clear sign it was time to journal. This is not the same as my free-writing where I get a timer and just write it out. Journaling is a little bit more complex than that, at least for me it is. I’m directing my journaling. I’m consciously working to get to the bottom of something by digging into the layers of an issue when I’m journaling. If my energy is aligned with the energy of fear, lack, and separation, and I know that because I feel resistance, it’s time for me investigate. What is the disconnect? Why in certain areas of my life am I living in resistance of what is?
As any human, my life is complex. I had two major highs this week, and I’m working with that momentum to notice what is coming up for me. It’s not easy because it’s been a really busy week, but yesterday right after I published my piece, I went outside and did a grounding meditation. It definitely helped. Today, I’m reading another book with a focus on gaining emotional independence. As of mom with two teens, I NEEDED this book and the last book I read on detachment. I love how God works in my life.
Just like God led me to the guests who wrote these books, I was also led to pull Angel Therapy Cards. I don’t use these often, but about a week ago, I decided to pull three to represent past, present, and future. Then today, I felt the need to pull a card and I got the same one as I got last week in the present spot, “Throat Chakra.” The throat chakra is all about speaking our truth. At fourteen, I had a picture drawn of my spirit guide, and even that picture highlighted the throat chakra. The speak your truth theme has been following me for as long as I know.
If you know me, even it’s through my writing or my podcast, I’m not someone who is afraid to speak my truth, but I just have this underlying feeling there is a block I have that I still haven’t uncovered. I feel like I’m on the verge of getting it to the surface. Journaling is a way I can help move it all along. It’s obviously writing I need to do in private where I can process it through. There is a lot coming up lately with signs that I’m ready to take speaking my truth to a new level. One word, one breath, one realization, one day at time.
What can I do now? write my truth through journaling.
