My second foundation:
Mood writing – journaling/oracle cards
Talk about my go-to for everything for whatever mood I am in. I not only pull an oracle card and journal in the morning but if I need a little break during the day, I pull out a journal and will write to clear my thoughts or more particularly to clear my mood.
In the morning is the perfect time to set my intention for the day, I ask the universe pretty much how to navigate my day choosing an oracle card (I have a few different ones at home but currently using the Moonology ones) I do not know how to read tarot and I am more intuitive than anything else. When purchasing oracle cards, I have gone with recommendations on Instagram or discuss with my circle of friends on what they love. I will pick my card look at its meaning and then write my feelings on it. I also like to journal a few things that I am grateful for, generally reflecting on the day before and it honestly sometimes is I am grateful for my bathtub or it could be I am grateful for a particular person as they may have assisted me that day. That positively helps with keeping the vibe high. (just got to say I love this term and hear it all the time and wanted to throw it into a blog somewhere).
As I said this is not the only time I journal. I journal if I need to have a meeting that is playing on my mind or if I am calling someone that is a bit high maintenance. I use journaling for all my family issues and my partner in crime would probably not like to read all my babble on how I get to clear my thoughts.
I have used mood writing recently going into day surgery as I have a fear of coming out of the anesthetic and sharing parts of my crazy mind so before going under I wrote everything out to ensure that my thoughts were clear.
I have cried tears into my journal pages smudging the writing and making it unreadable. I actually never go back and read any of it. Got to say I am a shit editor anyway. I don't want to try and fix or correct any of those thoughts. They are not right or wrong they just are and it is such a beautiful release to get them out.
This practice is for me, it is purely my journal and it does not have to be pen to paper you might like to type it out but I love my fountain pen and I have some beautiful journals (using art journals from ‘kathypetersenart.com' purely because I love the paper and it works so well with my fountain pen. I honestly have a few journals lying around the house, in bags etc so days are mixed up between them. I am totally ok with it, just like my thoughts my journals do not need to be in the order they are just my release of a lot of random words. Some days my writing is beautiful and other days it is messy as hell. I personally prefer the unlined books as I don't want to abide by the rules of staying on the lines.
I giggle as I talk to you about it, even to myself I feel a bit of a nutter but for me, it is a practice that works.
I want you to be happy in your career; with my workshops we can tackle any issues that stop you from reaching that. You won't need a sea change but love who you are and what you do.
