Okay, so I am presuming (a dangerous pastime indeed) that many of you have heard of gratitude journaling? Some of you may already have one, others may keep a regular journal. Fancy then trying a reality journal? “Why do I need another journal?” I hear you ask (sorry, there I go, presuming again).
Reality journaling is a sure fire way to be absolutely clear of your goals, regardless of whether they are big or small; life-changing or life-enhancing. It’s a great tool to run alongside consciously trying to manifest what you want using meditation and affirmations. I use it to really reinforce my hopes, wishes and aspirations. To align my conscious with my subconscious, to then harness the power of the Universe to transform them into being.
Imagine your dreams of today could become your reality tomorrow. Pretty cool eh?
We all already manifest to a certain extent. Ever wished for a coffee and it suddenly appears? Wishing you could locate a lost item, open a drawer and there it is? We can energetically attract what we believe, on some level, can actually happen. If we can learn to not block what may consciously appear impossible, move our mind out of the way and have a little faith, we are left with infinite possibilities.
If you want to try a reality journal (I am no longer presuming anything) express what you want in life as if it is actually happening right now. i.e. instead of journaling “I want a new job”, you would journal “I started my new job today as a ………”. You have to release your inhibitions and really have fun with this. Remember no-one will see it but you unless you choose to share.
Once you have your goal down start to really play around with it. Where are you? Who are you with? What is happening? How do you feel? Make it as real as you can. Once you have a different perspective on your life you can start to really see where the changes are you want to make.
You can always use a different colored ink to integrate this into your regular journal. Mix it up a little. Imagine how you would like your life to be, believe it can be, then trust the Universe to make that your reality.
