Journaling is a fantastic way to find more clarity in your life, use it for mental or physical health triggers to any conditions you suffer from, and to just have a way to preserve memories and special moments from your life.
It can also be used to start manifesting dreams and goals, even ones you didn’t realize you had. Here are some ways to use your daily journal for manifesting good things in your life.
Meditate Before Writing in Your Journal
This is something that is helpful every time you are journaling, regardless of your purpose, but it is especially beneficial if you want to manifest your dreams and goals. Try to take a few minutes to meditate quietly before you write in your journal.
This is going to perform a few functions.
It will first help to relax you, and get you into a calm state, which will help you journal more positively instead of just using it to vent and complain.
Meditating is also good for centering yourself and focusing on your innermost thoughts. You can get past the superficial stuff, and really get deep into your subconscious to see what is hidden there.
Lastly, meditating offers you more insight into what your biggest hopes and dreams are through the previous two processes.
Visualize What You Want
As you are meditating, try to visualize what you want. Remember this can be anything, big or small, short-term or long-term. Thing big, think small, think about dreams, hopes, goals, and aspirations.
If it helps you to narrow it down so you can focus on one thing at a time, think about what is bothering you the most in your life right now. This might be money, your career, a relationship, or something with your home or in your personal life.
With that in your mind, allow yourself to think about how you want it to change. This is the final result. Then, you can start thinking about steps to take in order to make this a reality.
The more you visualize it, the more you will remember what you want and what needs to be done in order to achieve it.
Keep a Positive Spin on Your Journaling
It is also really important that you remain positive when it comes to journaling. You are going to start writing down your goals and dreams in order to manifest them to you. But you don’t want to be negative. You might need a different journal just for this purpose if you want a regular daily journal for talking about everything going on in your life.
For the purpose of manifesting dreams and goals with a journal, it helps to remain positive and uplifting. Turn everything into something positive, even if it’s something you would normally complain about.
Lose your job? No, you just got the opportunity to find a better one. Having trouble with a co-worker? Maybe it’s a good time to get to know them better so you understand where your issues are.
There is a positive spin to be put on just about everything.
Think Big, Then Think Realistic
While it is great to have big dreams, you also want them to be realistic. Think about the biggest dream you have in life, then adjust it to be something more realistic.
Perhaps your biggest dream would be to be a famous writer. Is there a way to rationalize this and make it more realistic? Start with becoming a writer, and let the rest of it fall into place naturally.
