Thank you for continuing to read Journal for Wisdom Wednesdays!
Every week I will continue to post a journal prompt on Wednesday to help guide us towards our deeper wisdom. Don’t worry, I’m pretty new to all this spiritual hoo-haa too, so I’ll be doing the journal exercises right along with you.
Even if you don’t love to write, I urge you to give it a try. If we want something we’ve never had, we have to do something we’ve never done!
Intentional journaling is a fantastic way to discover your truest self. It’s also an amazing tool to help guide us towards a future full of possibility. It reminds us of what’s important and helps to destroy all the muck we bury ourselves under day in and day out. So give it a try to see what you can dig up!
The Assignment: Write your Universal Order!
This week I want us to try something kind of fun. We’re going to write out our Universal Order. That’s right, we’re going to tell the Universe exactly how we want our life to look. We’re going to design our lives as if all we have to do is call up the Universe like we call up the local pizza place to have our dinner delivered.
While I haven’t been a spiritual practitioner long enough to notice crazy changes in my life, yet, I truly believe that the Universe will work magic in our lives if we meet it with action and believe it’s going to happen.
Even if you don’t believe it and you’re not ready to take action, simply write down your best life on paper. And I mean your BEST life. Without guilt. Without shame. Without a single thought of money, time, or relationship restrictions.
Where do you live? How do you spend the majority of your time? Do you have kids, a spouse, or a better relationship with those who are already in your life? What does your house look like? How much money is in your bank account? How do you look physically? How do you feel emotionally? What kind of car do you drive? What kind of clothes do you buy? How are you making a difference in the world?
Write your life as if the Universe promised to deliver it exactly the way you asked for it. Feel excited about it. Imagine it was yours tomorrow. What would it feel like if you woke up and got to live this version of your life? How would your view of the world change?
Does anything about your desires surprise you? Do you feel the life you wrote about is possible? Why or why not? Can you think of other people who live a similar life? Think about the fears that keep you from having this life. What’s one thing you could do now to diminish them?
If you want to dig deeper and be braver, and you at least believe this life is possible, pick one thing from your Universal order that is most urgent. Maybe it’s health or career-related. Ask your self if you’re willing to go another day doing absolutely nothing to change this aspect of your life. If the answer is no, set a goal and write down some action steps to achieve it. Remind yourself that you have the power to change your life and every day you do nothing about it is another day you have to live a life that’s not awesome.
After you complete this exercise, report back and let me know how it went. Did you discover something new about yourself? Did you feel enlightened? Was it a form of release? What did it open up for you?
