Living an Authentic Life

Journal Guide

Write whatever comes into your head.

If you don’t understand it, WRITE IT ANYWAY.

If it’s not a complete thought, WRITE IT ANYWAY.

When you've done this:

sit back, relax, close your eyes. Take three long, slow, deep breaths in and out.

  • What pictures do you see in your mind’s eye?
  • What thoughts or feelings come to you?
  • Write it all down.
  • Let the writing flow.
  • Don’t consciously think about it, just write.

When you've done this:

think about what you’re feeling inside.

  • Deep inside.
  • Not what’s showing on the surface, but underneath that. Are these two different things?
  • Close your eyes and take a minute to identify what’s going on underneath.
  • Relax and let the feeling come to your consciousness.
  • Notice where you can feel it in your body, and what it feels like.
  • When you can feel something, try and describe it in your writing.
  • When you have a description of the feeling, write about how the discovery of it has made you feel.
  • What do you think could be behind that feeling?

Go through this guide every day before writing until you get used to the thought process.

This is very powerful
