Journal keeping as a life-transforming tool for listening to oneself, using inner resources, and reaching one's potential, complete with practical exercises.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
Regardless of how long it has been since you opened it, your journal need never feel like one more task on your to-do list, but rather a space of welcome, acceptance, and loving attention. Why do we insist on making a chore out of an activity that is healing, nurturing, and accepting? I suspect that most of us are unaccustomed to having a constant healing presence in our lives; it is far more familiar and comfortable to deal with a critical, judgmental voice. In a subtle, profound way, journalkeeping gives us the opportunity to practice loving ourselves.
Like the attentiveness of a friend, journalwriting encourages you to listen to yourself, an integral part of intimacy. You sit down, open the journal, pick up the pen, and listen. As you wait for the impulse to write, you may hear a cacophony of voices vying for your attention, or you may hear silence. Each time you write, you affirm and strengthen the skill of inner listening. Journal keeping creates a space in your life to still your external activities so your internal voices can come to consciousness.
