Your imagination and creativity is located on the right side of your brain and is fuelled by intuition. The imagination is the creative genius to which the seeds of manifestation reside, nurture and grow. Intuition (spirit) resides in this beautiful space of unknown possibilities. When the intuition is accessed, it allows that beautiful inner dialogue to speak from the language of the soul. It is here that you will be learning to journal with the divine.
“Spirit Journaling” is about connecting with your inner dialogue and being able to communicate with your intuition through writing. When it comes to any type of writing you must know how to expand your vision and listen to your intuition. Allowing the creation of words to express itself by free flowing from the heart, without self-induced interruption. Better known as interference of ego.
How does one distinguish between ego and intuition (spirit)? It will take practice and commitment. The biggest commitment will be learning to listen and being able to distinguish between your two inner voices. One voice is being driven purely by spirit and the other voice is by you and your ego. You will learn that silence will be your new best friend and it is this platform where you can connect with your inner dialogue.
This is a recap from the last introduction. For most, spirit speaks from the right side of the brain whereas ego likes to speak from the left. Let’s think of it like duelling pianos. Spirit will play its music from the right side of your head. It always creates music you enjoy, love and can understand with passion. It just flows. Where as your ego, plays from the left side of your head, it will forcefully play tunes that you may not want to hear, may not like or even know. All the while, you are the customer sitting in the middle of the pianos trying to decide which one is playing the better song. The choice will always be yours to make. Will it be left or the right? Go with the right.
You are gifted with intuition and it should be accessible at all times, from the right side. It is here where things feel “right” and are “right”. The right side of the brain is based on creation and the left side is logic. Truthfully, if you are thinking of the answer you are accessing the left side, which is logic.
That is right, we all have the power to access our intuition. This is not about being perfect; remember in spirit’s eyes you are already that. It is about accepting the imperfect you and learning to shine your light on all the stuff that makes up the total sum of ‘YOU’. There is no judgment here, just have an inner knowing that you do not need to prove yourself, that your gut instinct has a real voice and your inner compass is ready to be guided.
Do you understand? Good, let us start the first lesson using our imaginations and being introduced to our imaginary friend (or friends).
Most of us had an imaginary friend (or friends) when we were growing up as children. This imaginary friend always gave us a sense that they knew everything about us, just like our very best friend. They would share our space and allow us to be vulnerable. Allowing us to access our wildest imaginations by creating a safety net with that sense of unconditional love and encouragement. They helped us grow our 5 senses by expanding our beliefs beyond what we could see and touch in our real physical worlds. They made us believe that whatever we were willing to imagine was attainable within those limits. This was the beginning of manifestation in our lives. This was when we all learned the power too manifest.
Then we grew up and started to adapt to the physical world and no longer wished to access the potential of our imaginations, intuition and creativity. We decided to leave our pretend imaginary friends back in our childhood, where we thought they belonged. We adapted our belief systems, goals and values from our tribes. We became too serious about life and started to lack creativity and passion. Life became real in the physical world and our days of playing were gone. Why did we do that? Why did we stop imagining and creating?
What if these friends were not imaginary at all? What if these beautiful sensory feelings were your guardian angels or spirit guides?
In this lesson you will learn how to access this imaginary friend (friends) and bring them back to life in your journal. Bring back their characters using all 5 senses, some creativity and a whole lot of imagination.
Here are some examples of questions you can ask:
16. When you feel you have written enough information it is time to stop. End your passage with a “Thank you Spirit (or name if you received one) love……………(your name).
17. After you have closed up your journal, take a deep breath and close your eyes. Thank spirit for blessing your space with their presence and bid them farewell until your next session.
18. Close off your space and honour it until the next time you decide to journal.
The questions and writing out the answers can be endless. This really is about you and opening up the channel to your spirit through writing. There is no right or wrong way of doing this. At the end of the day have fun and know that you just invited your imaginary friend back into your life and now you can call them your spirit guide or angel.
