Journal writing has been a profound and beneficial practice for my spiritual exploration and growth. My journal is a safe space and a sacred companion. For me, journaling is a centering practice and a valuable tool for increasing self-awareness and self-understanding. When I get everything out of my head and onto paper, I see situations and challenges more objectively, identify patterns and life lessons, and catalyze real change in my life.
When I'm feeling confused or uncertain, my journal helps me explore the possibilities, understand what I really want (and what I don't want), and then choose the best answer for me. Through a consistent journaling practice I see how my behavior patterns, responses and choices are grounded in past hurts and are still impacting me in the present. I become aware of how feelings of doubt, fear, lack, worry, guilt and shame hold me back so I can release these and open to new beginnings.
In my journal, I feel more connected to myself and find rejuvenation and healing for my heart and soul. Journal writing has helped me more clearly hear the whispers of my heart calling me toward my passions, desires, and dreams.
I offer one-to-one journal coaching to help you:
30-day Journal Coaching
I'll help you identify how journal writing will support your specific personal and spiritual growth goals and then integrate a consistent journaling practice into your schedule. I'll send you self-reflection questions, worksheets, and journaling prompts that are customized to your needs and in support of your personal/spiritual intentions. As you reflect on and journal about the topics, I'll invite you to share your observations, insights, lessons, or when helpful, you may share complete journal entries. I’ll respond with my observations, insights, and additional questions to help you inquire more deeply.
You'll be supported with digital coaching, or coaching that occurs via email or a confidential web-based tool, to help you determine what actions you need to take as a result of your new insights and awareness. We'll wrap up by reviewing what you've learned, the changes you have already incorporated, additional changes you want to make and your action plan for making those changes.
