Want to join me for a week of free journalling instruction? I’m a big fan of journalling, and have filled endless diaries and notebooks over the last 20-odd years. It’s a great way to get time alone with yourself, and it helps with that often difficult task of knowing ourselves, and all our messy hopes, dreams, desires, blocks and resistance. Over the next seven days I’m going to explore journalling as a tool for self-awareness, creativity and spiritual development. From the seeds of writings in our journal, many positive things can grow.

Day 1 – Select your tools
The beginning of 2012 begs for the opportunity to begin a journal if you haven’t yet started one. Part of the joy is in the selection of that new book. Yes, old-fashioned paper rather than a digital device.
And will you use pen, ink, pencil, crayons, or a combination of writing implements? You may even want to buy a snappy pencil case or tin to keep your writing tools in. Perhaps you’ll favour stickers, or things cut from magazines that will need to be glued. Keep open to the possibilities, especially if you don’t consider yourself artistic!

Task for the day:
Today, take the time to choose your journal and writing tools. Let it be a gift of time and energy for yourself. You may have things lying around the house that you could collect, you may need to buy something. What matters most is that you decide to journal, and gather your materials together. See you tomorrow, for some WRITING! ♥
