Working with journaling as an integrative practice is a powerful way to expand and deepen your perspective. By writing, you extract the vital essence of that perspective.
One of the most important outcomes of putting in the work of journaling is that it can offer a means to reconnect to your true nature, your authentic self; and thereby help find meaning in our experience of life.
Journaling can be an incredibly valuable tool in your integration process. The process of writing, not for an audience, but rather strictly for yourself clarifies thoughts and feelings, helping you recognize patterns that run through your life. In the course of this self-reflection, you may discover you know more than you realized. Journaling has a way of unlocking deeper thoughts and understandings from your inner self.
Writing things out can feel grounding, soothing, even healing. And, journaling creates a record for the future that serves as both a memory bank and a source of inspiration. Of the many integrative practices I suggest, journaling ranks in the top five.
Journaling is the number one tool that people are using to integrate life-changing experiences. It is an internal, exploration of the terrain of the heart and soul.
