Journaling can help to connect to Universal Energy and can be used anywhere, anytime. Instead of reaching for that laptop, considering putting pen to paper in a real journal. Practicing journaling in this way allows you to focus in on your intention. Laptops can contain the energies of frustration, anxiety, pressure as well as anticipation of work to be done that can often distract from the connection you seek. By reaching for a journal and perhaps special pens and pencils, the intention is understood by body, mind, spirit and the universe – you are ready to connect. Also, when you connect in this way, you never know where the energy will take you – perhaps a grand story that you have been dream of will appear on the pages, or maybe bright colors will splash across the pages telling you their own story. It is an adventure for sure. So get that journal, find your happy place and connect. Here are a few ideas to get your imagination flowing.
