Two of many reasons to journal

​​​​​​By Felicity Biasi

The first reason you have most likely heard me talk about before, that is purpose driven journaling. Which is journaling with a specific purpose such as capturing your experience with spirit after a meditation. Another form of purpose driven journaling is asking spirit a specific question and then meditating the answer through your writing. ​​​​​​​​

The second reason and one I am appreciating more recently is journaling for what I call a download or brain dump, there is no needed or being in a state of meditation it’s just simply when my brain is too full or too consumed by a situation, I use my journal to dump all that information onto a page. This goes back to our traditional memories of journaling when we were younger in the forms of our dear diary. The concept of writing things down has an unbelievable release on your mental state. We are all overthinkers and sometimes that thinking gets beyond a joke so grab your journal grab your pen and write until you can’t write no more dump everything that’s in your brains circling around onto that paper. It’s unbelievable how much of what you right now may seem petty or stupid or ridiculous that you’re spiralling around the information it’s also wonderful when what seemed to be a ridiculously impossible problem now written in black and white looks completely solvable.​​​​​​​​
