Journaling doesn’t get the credit it deserves. It conjures memories of 6th grade angst riddled with unruly emotions, and just doesn’t sound serious, not like meditation, or Kundalini does. Even so, if you’ve ever read The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity (a cult classic by Julia Cameron), it expels the virtues of writing your morning pages in a way that’s hard to dispute. It explains how 30 minutes of free flow writing accesses your right brain and prepares you for a day of creative thinking unlike anything else.
The bedrock tool of a creative recovery is a daily practice called Morning Pages.
Moreover, we’ve noticed other benefits from writing our morning pages. First of all, it can act like a form of therapy, tapping into our emotions and thoughts that often times, we didn’t even know were swirling underneath. For example, we’ve worked through relationship problems and uncovered hidden anxieties in as quick as 15 minutes!
However, not only does journaling help with creativity, it also helps with internal beauty. Pretty major in our book. For this reason, we want everyone to start journaling, which is why we broke down our essential journaling steps in this weeks video.
