A Guest Post by Michael Pearlman
Many people use journaling as a way of releasing events of the day or working through specific issues. The concept of stream of consciousness journaling via Morning Pages was introduced by Julia Cameron in her book, The Artist’s Way. Janet Conner wrote about listening to your inner voice in her book, Writing Down Your Soul and describes this process as asking questions in writing in your journal.
I’ve been journaling for many years. When I journal, my intention is to access and tune-in to a better feeling thought. I want to walk away from a journaling session with more clarity around a specific issue and having shifted my focus from the issue that was bothering me (what I don’t want) to what I do want. And, quite possibility, I may end a journaling session with a clear idea of how to more closely align myself to the thing I do want.
Many who believe in and attempt to use the Law of Attraction are left wondering why it doesn’t work for them. Much is written about the Law of Attraction and if you have read any of this content, you’re well aware of the concepts: Focus on what you want so that your energy is vibrating at the same frequency as what you wish to attract into your life. Sounds simple enough, right?
But, what if your focus is consistently pulled away from what you want because you lack clarity in your thinking or you really don’t know what you want but you know it’s not what you’re currently experiencing? And due to these confused thoughts, your focus, most of the time, ends up being on the very thing you don’t want. So, guess what you’re attracting more of into your life?
Law of Attraction Journaling guides you to understand your unique points of attraction so that you can focus on what’s most important to you. By writing down what you think and feel, you reveal your truth and your present point of attraction—whether this is something wanted or unwanted. Then, by taking the extra step of examining your thinking, you move yourself into the position of being able to reframe your story or life experience. This reframe is like a change of perspective or third person view of your life story. Once you change your thinking, you change your life. Your soul knows what feels right. And journaling to activate the Law of Attraction is the fastest way forward to get what you want; it’s the how-to for creating the life you desire.
