Intuition 101: Journaling to Wisdom

journal-1-of-1Journaling 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.

Have you ever tried this exercise before?  If so, share your experiences with others here.

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