Slay Your Inner Naysayer through Journaling by Donna McDine of Energy of Serenity
Slay Your Inner Naysayer through Journaling
As promised on March 2, I am back today to chat about how journaling has been an instrumental way of slaying my inner naysayer and creating my authentic life…
You may be asking yourself, what’s the inner naysayer? It’s that little voice of negativity that halts you in your tracks from exploring different avenues of what makes your heart soar. It may sound a little like… “who do you think you are changing careers so late in life?” or “so and so won’t like the new direction you are taking, so don’t bother.”
Early on in my life I let the inner naysayer to direct me in life, until the day I started to become a “no girl” and started connecting with like-minded people that were determined to break the chains of society conform. And that’s when the true beginnings of my journey began.
It’s Never Too Late to Begin Your Journey…
Journaling your thoughts is one way of slaying the inner naysayer. Recently one of my Reiki students asked me how to get out of one’s own way of allowing the Reiki energy to flow forth. I shared the following:
“Journaling is a great way of connecting with Spirit. Write down what you would like guidance on. Put your pen down. Breathe in slowly to the count of 4 in through the nose and breathe out slowly to the count of 5 out your mouth – 3xs. Pick up your pen and free write. What you write will be downloads from Spirit/Universe.”
The feedback from my Reiki student was fabulous and to honor confidentiality I am not sharing the feedback. Instead, I am sharing an excerpt of one of my journaling downloads below.
Dear Spirit/Universe… “help guide me to opening up energetically for an abundance of Reiki clients and students for the higher good of one and all.”
“Dearest Dee, now is the time to physical clear out what no longer serves you in your environment, for once you do the energy will swirl.”
The outcome, within one week of the physical clearing out items that no longer serve me, I signed on two new Reiki clients and four new Reiki students. How exhilarating is that?
How do I unearth what truly serves my highest soul calling…
Explore creative outlets, such as painting, writing (aka… journaling), learn a musical instrument or plan out your vegetable or wild-flower garden. As you work on creative projects your adrenaline will begin to elevate of inspiring action you may continue to take in seeking out what makes your soul soar.
I want to hear from you…
I’d enjoy hearing all about what you are doing to create your authentic life to your own true desires. Please feel free to ask your questions either in the comment section or via email.
Until then, the sky, is the limit!
