Seven Gifts from Your Wise Self to You

Image from keithabraham.com

Who doesn’t love a gift?  One of my favourite realisations around journalling was that your wise self can present your conscious (and sometimes very confused or narrow-thinking) mind with all manner of gifts – through the form of realisations, guidance and new ideas.

Today we’re going to explore some of the treasure that is locked away inside you.  You might be helped by your subconscious, your inner child, your higher self, or divine guidance.  But no matter where that help comes from, trust that sometimes, with just a simple pen and paper, you really can map out a new future for yourself; one with clearer direction, that is more fulfilling and that better uses your talents and gifts.

Journal Exercise:

Start by writing this at the beginning of your page:

I trust that within me are the answers I need.  Within my heart lies a map to guide me along life’s many roads.  I am open to answers.  I expect to find solutions.  I am ready to change. Miracles happen every day. New ideas can come to anyone. I am open to receiving my truth. I am excited by the possibilities within my reach.

Now use any of the prompts below, to begin unwrapping these gifts from yourself to you.  Pick any one journal prompt that appeals to you (or repels your) from beside each image of a gift.  That way you’ll get seven answers.  Don’t expect to ‘know’ these answers.  Just start writing and see what happens…

Gift One:

  • One of the best ways for me to feel grounded is to
  • The easiest change I can make around my financial situation is
  • One person I really need to say to no to is

Gift Two:

  • Music that always makes me feel good includes
  • The most satisfying way for me to spend spare time in a creative way right now would be
  • What my body most needs right now to feel healthy and energised is
  • If I was to work with one creative idea right now. the one most suited to my own talents and abilities, I would
  • I’d forgotten, but one of the things that best expresses me, and that I don’t do any more is
Gift Three:

  • The area I need to pay attention to, so I can get my stress under control would have to be
  • Some of the best chores and responsibilities for me to delegate include
  • If there is one thing I want to achieve, it is
  • The thing that would make me feel better about myself within the next six months would be
Gift Four:

  • Deep in my heart, I know that
  • Given a chance, I could shine at
  • If I was to put my energy towards one thing it needs to be
  • I am happiest when
  • If I was to leave a legacy, I would like it to be
Gift Five:

  • A terrific hobby for me would be
  • It’s a huge project, but if I start in this small corner over here, I could definitely
  • The things that most nurture and fill me up are
  • My deepest ambition is to
  • If I let go of
  • The thing I most want to share with the world is

Gift Six:

  • Once, I was shown
  • My inner guidance is pointing towards
  • This keeps coming up for me, that I need to
  • Every time I do this, I could keep doing it forever. I feel so positive and excited every time I begin to

Gift Seven:

  • In ten years time, when I look back, I want to be able to say
  • I keep forgetting how much I love to
  • In a perfect world I would be
  • My deepest, most carefully held wish is that
  • I try to hide from myself the fact that
  • If I had some good advice for me right now, that would help me get back on track, it is

And for a final piece of believe-in-yourself-and-your-dreams wisdom, watch this…
