How to Start a Journaling Practice

Journaling is one of those things I have done my whole life. It always made me feel lighter afterwards and I found so much joy in writing. It's had such an incredible impact on my mental health too! 


So what are the benefits of journaling and how do you start? Well, let's dive in! 


Journaling has been around for thousands of years and has so many benefits. Some of those include:  

  • Relieves stress

  • Inspires Creativity

  • Boosts Your Memory

  • Helps you set and achieve your goals

  • Improves your writing 

  • Boosts Productivity

  • Self Reflection 

So now that you know the benefits of journalling, how do you start your journaling practice? 

How to Start a Journaling Practice

The first thing to know is that this is your personal practice, so there is no right or wrong way to do it! Secondly, it's time to get yourself a journal that you LOVE! There are so many journals available on the market now, but I get mine from Kmart. They're cheap and have a heap of variety! Plus if you love this practice like I do you will start to accumulate quite a few! 


Then open up the first page and just start writing! You can write about your day, your feelings, your children, your relationships, what you're grateful for right now! It's not so much about what your writing but about how it feels to write. Does it make you feel lighter, help you gain more clarity, help you to feel like your getting things off your chest, grateful for the life you have? 


If you are starting to connect with your higher self and your soul, a journal practice is a beautiful way to encourage that re-connection. You will be surprised at the messages you start to receive. If you are an old hand at journaling, you might want to take it one step further and try automatic journal writing. It's something I love to encourage my clients to do in our coaching series together! 


When it came to writing my books, I actually went back through my journals for clarification, material and insights! So if you have ever wanted to write a book, journaling is a great place to start!

As Woman We Can Often Find ourselves feeling Stuck...

Its little wonder really when, as women, many of us have been suppressed, ignored, punished, controlled, judged and censored for some or most of our lives.


We have found ourselves stuck in patterns of self-doubt, people pleasing, comparison, perfectionism, guilt and shame. Wasting countless hours, months and years trying to be someone that we are not. Forever chasing feelings of acceptance, love, connection and worthiness from others.


On top of that we carry the stories of the women who have gone before us - women who were persecuted, burned, drowned, tortured and silenced because of their power - sadly, we carry this in our DNA. 


It's time for change - time for us to break FREE! 

Your Intuition Talks.. But are You Listening?  

✨✨✨Are you living Authentically? ✨✨✨

👉 Have you ever felt suppressed, ignored, punished, controlled, judged and censored as a woman for some or most of your life? 

👉 Have you ever felt like you have to conform in order to be socially accepted? 

👉 Have you ever found yourself feeling stuck in patterns of self-doubt, people pleasing, comparison, perfectionism, guilt and shame. Wasting countless hours, months and years trying to be someone that you're not. Forever chasing feelings of acceptance, love, connection and worthiness from others.


Living authentically means living your life true to your own personality, spirit, or character. So let me ask you, are you living your life according to your own personality, spirit and character? 

Living inauthentically, on the other hand, is like filling a leaky bucket. You can't ever fill it because it's not complete. And that's the reason why many of us are feeling unhappy, sad, confused and depressed with the state of our lives right now. We try to numb, ignore and suppress the pain with wine, shopping or social media but that just pushes our pain down deeper. 

Living authentically starts with honouring your true self and re-connecting with your intuition. Your intuition knows what she wants! Your intuition talks to you all the time but most of us aren't listening or don't really know how to tune into her? 

And that's where I can help, if your ready to break free and to feel reconnected back to your authentic self and intuition, I'd love to nurture and support you through my Private Coaching Sessions together!
