Know yourself through journalling

"The blank page gives us the right to dream."

Gaston Bachelard

According to Sarah Dan Breathnach in Simple Abundance the path to simple abundance requires a variety of steps.

Simplicity in which we simplify our lives by decluttering our environment, our mental and physical health. To do this you could do it 15 mins at a time by using the flylady’s method of decluttering your home and your body. The body clutter book is clearly laid out how you can take steps to love yourself.

Journalling, as the word implies, allows us to work out our own individual map to arrive at our unique destination. I have been using this blog to help me with my daily journalling and reflections. I have a vision and a dream and writing each day is a valuable tool . It allows us to delve deeper into the realms of the subconscious where we can clean out personal problems, pain, patterns and reactions whilst at the same time taking us into the higher realms of our potential where we can connect with intuition and our higher guidance to uncover our authentic self, our essence and purpose.

"Life is a narrative that you have a hand in writing."

Henriette Anne Klauser

Decluttering takes us to a rhytm and order both inside our being and outside in the environment. I have talked about natural rhythms before and how we push the boundaries every day. Children can be themselves, authentic, because we offer them the security of boundaries and routines. Aryuvedic medecine and eastern culture provide excellent examples of rhytms, how to surf with the energy instead of batlling through mud. Timing is all!

When you have found the order that suits you, you will find a sense of wellbeing and harmony. A place where there is tranquillity and harmony. As you continue to journal you will have a clear idea of what you enjoy, for me that is the contentment of sitting in my kitchen watching the everchanging spectacle of nature and feeling a connection with that. This brings us to a place of Joy and simple abundance and can give a sense of deep peace.

It is a journey, your journey and my way of getting there will not be the same as yours, but I hope you will take up the invitation to put down the load you are carrying, take out your compass, get that map out and start planning where it is you need to go to find your authentic self, the place where you can reach your potential and find peace and harmony.

"I want you to get excited about who you are, what you are, what you have, and what can still be for you. I want to inspire you to see that you can go far beyond where you are right now."

-- Virginia Satir
