Journaling is one of the ways that I can easily tap into my intuition. Ever since I went through The Artists Way many years ago I have been using this medium to access my Inner Guidance.
In this book, the author, Julia Cameron recommends that every morning to write three long-hand pages of stream of consciousness. Whatever is jumbled up in your head write it out. I find that by page two or three the garbage has spewed out onto the pages and I can then ask questions to my Inner Guidance System.
This is also called automatic writing. I ask the question and then begin writing whatever flows through me. For instance, this morning I heard the message, “You’ve got this!” I’ve asked questions about diet, exercise and of course men and always received a message that may not have been what I wanted to hear but always what I needed to. Each time the information that comes through sounds like a voice other than my own. I hear the words and put down on the page what comes through. Sometimes I think I am making it all up but that doesn’t really matter. The information that comes through is always spot on.
Some automatic writers seem to have the pen move across the page of their own accord. Whether you hear a voice like I do or your pen glides across the page I invite you to experiment and give it a try.

Book Recommendation: Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch. The entire book was written through the process of automatic writing.

In the beginning was the breath. The Breathe of Life breathed us into being. It is through the breath that we access our intuition. It is through the breath that we remember our connection to Source Energy.
A long deep breath cleanses the body and calms the mind. It brings us into stillness where we can listen to the voice of our Higher Wisdom.
Try it with me now. Inhale slowly and deeply. Now exhale completely. And, once again. Inhale. And, exhale. Notice how everything slows down. The anxiety leaves. The worry melts away. If you don’t feel lighter, keep breathing until you do.
Now ask a question to your Higher Self. Maybe it’s a simple question about general guidance for the day. Perhaps its as serious as “Is it in my highest good to stay in this marriage?” Now, breathe again slowly and deeply. Breathing will help you stay connected and grounded as the answer emerges.
How The Answers Come
In my experience, the answers to my questions don’t always come right away. They may show up in the early morning hours before I get out of bed. I may hear an internal voice that guides my way, or a friend will say something that resonates within me. I have even received answers while reading a book. My most significant indicator is my body. I may sense the answer to my question, and then I will get an overall feeling of rightness in my body that solidifies the guidance I am receiving. I feel it to my bones, so to speak.
I would love to hear how Guidance speaks to you. Leave your comments below.

Folding laundry is my least favorite domestic chore. I usually call a friend while I fold and put everything away or listen to a podcast — anything to distract me from the task at hand.
Today I took a different approach. I decided to be present for the experience. As I lifted each item of laundry out of the basket, I felt the texture and the heat of each piece. I was aware of how jeans hold heat more intensely than a sock. I noticed how washcloths are rough, and napkins are smooth. And the smell of fresh laundry is a delight.
Instead of being a “chore” it was a joy-filled experience. Now, to take that presence into other areas of my life.
