Journaling for Self-Discovery

September 6, 2009
The tool I introduced in the previous post was the Spiritual Thermometer. The Spiritual Thermometer allows us to take responsibility for our thoughts, actions, and behaviors enabling us to observe the feelings that make us 5 or below.

By perceiving our behavior and thoughts we understand at a deeper level what really pushes our buttons and why they are being pushed. Then and only then can we begin to witness and process our behavior.

Action to take: JOURNALING.

Journaling assists us in focusing our thoughts and allows information to arise in our consciousness and can get to the root of the problem faster than talking about it.

Write down the thoughts, images or feelings you are experiencing. By doing this, you are on the road to "Self discovery."

Journaling is an important tool to unravel the mysteries of your subconscious mind.

It can get you to the root of a problem quicker than talking about it or trying to figure it out in your head. It facilitates a flow of consciousness that opens up channels that disclose hidden information.

Here are some journaling questions that will spark solutions when you are caught in the drama of life situations. Write whatever comes to mind.

1. What emotions are you feeling?

2. Who or what pushed your buttons?

3. Does this always happen to you? Is this a pattern in your life?

4. What is your Soul trying to tell you?
