Journalling is a big subject, there are many ways in which it can be useful, even imperative to the Ascension journey. So here’s the how and the why.
So we’ve talked about the need for tools and skills, consciousness and commitment throughout the ascension journey. Journalling is a basic and powerful tool to have if you use it well. You may already be journalling and if so, that’s great, you may find this article useful to expand or otherwise direct your journal writing to support you more deeply on this journey. If you are a newcomer to journalling, here’s what I recommend you do – grab a big notebook, and start writing – take up one idea here and work with it for a while, once you’ve developed a flow with that work, then add another idea that attracts you and work with that as well. It may become overwhelming at times but keep working with it all as it supports you in this powerful time of history.
What To Use
I recommend the old fashioned pens and blank notebook. Of course use lined if you prefer, however I find that the blank unlined visual arts diaries to be great if you want to get creative with imagery, draw something you’re visualising or you saw in a dream for example, it provides greater scope or freedom to express in different ways. Of course some may prefer to keep a diary on a computer or a blog on line etc, however, there is something very healing even clearing about hand writing everything down – as though the ink itself draws out the clutter from your field and releases it to the page. Of course, do what works best for you. Colour pens, beautiful calligraphy, cut outs from magazines, everything can be included, it’s up to you, but for my choice, it’s primarily words on blank clean white paper.
Types of Journalling
A lot goes on in daily life, if you have taken to working on your wounding or personal journey, so much more comes up. Writing out whatever it is you are going through, helps to clarify perspective, untangle thoughts and ideas, and build new levels of understanding, that is why journalling is highly regarded in therapeutic work. It helps process the clutter in the mind. So consider Ascension in some ways a much bigger version of this personal work. One aspect of Ascension is the clearing out of lifetimes of garbage, wounding, and distorted beliefs and ideas based on foundations of false consciousness. You will find (if you haven’t already) that unravelling all the mess as it comes up enables you to easily let go of things that have unknowingly run your life in a way that has never really worked for you. This is processing.
New ideas, new information, new concepts, new learnings are coming in all the time. Paradigms of thinking come and go fairly quickly in Ascension and writing about it, helps to explore what you’re hearing or even receiving in your psychic consciousness and expand, let go of old ideas or integrate different aspects of thought together. It allows you to deepen the concepts you are exploring and also make leaps of perspective expanding your awareness in these new ideas as you go. As long as you don’t attach too deeply – in other words be willing to move beyond or let go of that which you are exploring as quickly as it comes because sometimes, that’s exactly the point – just a stepping stone to a whole other reality. This is a powerful way to use journalling.
The next level to (and often intertwined with) Learning, is working with Consciousness Streaming, often identified as Automatic Writing. This is where you have stepped into an idea that you’ve read or heard about, and the idea has taken hold. You leap from concept to concept with it and have difficulty keeping up. Once you begin writing it down, you can ask questions that open different doors of info, write down the flow as it comes and then ask another question and so on. Consciousness Streaming is based on the awareness that Everything is Consciousness. You may have heard that Everything is Energy right? Well All Energy is Consciousness. There is consciousness about Everything out there in the Universe, out there in the Human Collective Consciousness and other formats of Consciousness. You can access these places, these Streams of Consciousness and open the streams to learn more and more. Once you get the hang of it, it can be a powerful tool. How do you get started, begin by working with Beings of Light – asking them questions and receiving the answers, writing them down.
You may have heard that your dreams provide a bounty of information if you know how to read them, well it’s true. Recording your dreams every morning enables you to remember them more clearly as well as have a record of your dreams that you can work with and refer back to in the future (some dreams have sequences or even chapters). Dreams provide psychological as well as metaphysical and spiritual information that becomes very helpful on this journey.
Ascension can get rough. Really rough at times, and a gratitude journal is one of the strengthening, positive ways that you can use to program your consciousness into higher frequencies. Essentially, at the end of the day you list five things that you are grateful for that day. Five things that bring you joy, or solace, or comfort and peace.
So yes, of course this is just the tip of the iceberg and I may return to this subject and write more deeply on different individual tools but for now, hopefully, this will inspire you to go deep with your Ascension Journal!!
