Question: How well do you know yourself? And I mean reaaaallly know yourself.
The reality is: you might not know yourself as well as you think! And not knowing/understanding yourself might just be the cause of some of your outer world problems.
We all have a well of knowledge within us! The only problem is most of us are rushing so fast through life that we forget to go inwards for the answers.
We’re used to letting our brain hang out in panic and chaos mode so much that we often forget that there’s even another way of being.
But you have a lot more knowledge and wisdom than you think. If you start opening the door to that knowledge, you might be surprised at just how much comes flooding out.
We should actually be turning inwards first instead of constantly chasing the next blog post, podcast or course.
And guess what? There’s actually an easy way you can make turning inwards a habit.
But I get it: most people still think journaling is something teen girls do–and therefore it’s not worthy of doing.
(Which really just says a lot about how we view women in this messed-up society!)
But when I talk about journalling I don’t mean just writing down your daily thoughts and fears (but don’t get me wrong–there is immense wisdom to be found in doing that too!).
In this practice of self-healing, we can work through some deeper diving questions that might get us to reflect on some new things and maybe even see ourselves (and the world) in a whole new light.
Would you like to get started journaling today? I mean why not give it a go at least? It’s free and the only thing you could possibly “waste” is some paper.
