“The practice of writing in a journal is a powerful tool for cultivating what you want from life.
We are artists, creating our lives out of the materials of our experiences, thoughts, and dreams. When we write, we empower ourselves and breathe life into what we want and how we want to live.
You can’t always know exactly how your desires will materialize into reality. This is where faith comes in.
If you show up, listen to and speak from your heart, and then let go of the need to know how, you can let the universe or God or quantum physics or whatever that thing is that helps our dreams become a reality do its magic.”

Writing has, as far back as I can remember, been an important release in my life. Whether I wrote to figure out my emotions as a teenager or played with fictional short stories, writing gave my mind a chance to explore and play.
Journaling is now a critical part of my grief therapy as I move forward after the death of my husband. In my lowest emotional states, writing in my journal without censor or abandon helps my mind make sense of the chaotic thoughts that make me think I’m going crazy. Why did he die? Why now? What now? Some of these questions will never have answers, but dumping them out onto paper–or in my case, into my word processing program–helps me to find peace.
I was curious how others might use personal writing and found a tinybuddha.com blog regarding the power of journaling. Ms. Janna Krawczyk presents a personal case of searching for answers, journaling about her situation, gaining clarity over time, and then, having The Creator/Universe/God bring her solutions.
How this makes sense to me! The Creator is here to help our biggest dreams to come true. Writing our dreams down helps us think through them and brings clarity to them. This clarity makes it easier for them to be manifested.
If you don’t have a cute journal or laptop available, just grab a piece of paper and a pen and let your mind send thoughts to your journal without judgment. Let me know what happens!
