Journaling and the Way of the Wise Woman
I have been loving the power of journaling. And I have discovered that journaling has creative connective powers to the deepest part of who we are as wise women…Sometimes, I just write and write and write…other times I just ask questions, writing those down to ponder, to allow the answers to create themselves. Sometimes, I cut and paste and draw and paint and mark and highlight, allowing my wise woman muse to take over. Journaling is a retreat moment in itself…it calms, centers, creates a space where my intuition and insights begin to jump right onto the page. I started out with the journal style of The Artist’s Way, but begin creating more with photos and cutouts from magazines and books with words, phrases and pictures that carry the essence of what I am searching for or what I am feeling or what I know I need to receive….Journaling gives me that safe space on paper to really be just me, no judgment or criticisms, no negativity—playful compassionate creative intuitive mystical magical moments create themselves in my journals…..
You can do this, Wise Woman. Don’t be afraid to let your muse take over. You may just find an ally supporting all your dreams and desires, leading you to your passion and your purpose…..and it’s such a magnificent experience once you allow yourself to get over the hump of actually writing down, drawing, painting, collage who you be…do you remember the Wise WomanSoul in you…come out and play…give yourself permission. You can do this!
