Christmas is past – how fast was that? Now, who’s up for a bit of 2015 dreaming?

journalling

I wrote a post last year on how to set yourself up for a fantastic and focused 2014 – and had fantastic feedback on it  – have a look at it here  , the process is timeless.

But maybe, like so many, you are saying that you have no idea of what you want so you don’t know how to start.

Maybe you can think of some New Year Resolutions – but you know from experience that those will fall by the wayside within a few days, most often because they have not got enough substance or enough self knowing behind them.

One way to find out what is going on inside is to do some journalling. It can be quite addictive once you find your voice but again many don’t know how to start. I often recommend Morning Pages from Julia Cameron’s The Artists Way. It is a simple mind dump, done immediately on waking. 20 minutes or 4 pages (you choose) of non-stop writing can help your subconscious thoughts, worries and feelings be heard.

Amazing things can happen, you can discover what is important or not important to you just because you must write without stopping. You can unleash unexpected creativity or a whole new direction and focus. And other times it is just plain boring or mildly embarrassing to see what junk sits in your brain first thing in the morning. 🙂

It is important not to re-read this journaling as it is a dump and does not necessarily hold any great wisdom in and of itself. If, however, you feel you want to I always suggest you leave it for 6 weeks or so as dumping and then leaving space allows the mind to clear and open to new possibilities. And, of course, this is just what you want when you are ready to create some amazing intentions for the future.

However this process doesn’t appeal to everyone, many people prefer a more thoughtful ‘dear diary’ journey but can find, without the non-stop, timed limited process of Morning Pages, that they can get stuck staring at a blank page.

If that is you have a look at this great blog on 30 prompts for journalling. I recently read it and loved it. The author,   offers 30 questions to prompt your writing that will uncover spaces within that may not have been explored. I am definitely going to add these to the front of my journal and have fun finding out more about me.  I would love to hear what you think. 

Enjoy creating an amazing 2015 however you do it. 🙂
