Journaling can maximise the benefits you get from other mindset practices like healing, EFT and mindset coaching.
So how do you journal alongside another mindset practice? Before you go into your session, journal about how you are feeling. You might even want to read your journal entry out to your practitioner. Afterwards, reflect on the session and any insights you’ve discovered. During the week after your session, record any insights that come up as you practise what you’ve learned. A good exercise to try is to write for five minutes and after the five minutes is up, reread your writing. Underline anything meaningful to you. Then journal on what you underlined for a further five minutes.
Journaling works with many different mindset practices including the Emotional Freedom Technique. Journaling can help you write your own script and it can be as positive one as things change for you. You can journal on what comes up for you when you tap and find more things to tap on.
Journaling also works with kinesiology or healing. Journaling helps you work through the beliefs that you have that need healing. You could use an affirmation that comes out of your session as a journaling prompt.
You can also journal when you work with a mindset coach. Journaling can help you deepen the insights you get. It can help you reflect on the session. My mindset coach is big on journaling. She has me journal on what it would be like to achieve my goals.
Journaling also works with forgiveness work or Ho’oponopono. Journaling helps you identify beliefs you need to clear. You can journal about how you feel about each person on your forgiveness list. After you’ve done your forgiveness work, you could write a dialogue with them or write them an unsent letter.
Journaling also works beautifully with money tracking. When you hit a zero dollar day, you can journal about the beliefs that come up for you. Tash Corbin who runs a money tracking programme called 100 Days of Colour has her participants complete a shield exercise on zero dollar days where you journal on what you don’t want, what you do want and what action you’ll take to get there. Don’t forget to journal when you hit your income goals too, it’s important to track the good times.
You can also journal with health or wellbeing coaching or tracking. Journaling can help you push through resistance. For example, you could write a list of reasons why you don’t want to train and another list of reasons why you do want to train. You could write a list – 100 reasons why I want to lose weight. There are so many possibilities.
In summary, the most important thing about journaling is building it up as a consistent practice – it doesn’t really matter what the other mindset practices are, but journaling brings it all together really beautifully, particularly if you make it part of your every day.
