Inner-journaler


Each Soul-
Collage® card represents the Essence of an inner-facet of our multi-jeweled self. Below is my conversation with this "part" of me:
.
Who are you? - I am the part of you that feels centered and balanced when I write. I am the one who is exhilarated and enlightened at what comes through your writing. I am both the writer and the one who benefits from it. Writing is the way you listen to me...listen to yourself. Writing is the way you discover what you're thinking and feeling...long before it comes to your conscious mind. I am the part of you that knows journaling provides the yin and yang of knowlege, self-knowlege and revelation.
.
* I want you to spend more time with me. Let me express more often and more consistently. I want you to ritualize my writing time so it's free from distraction, and calming to the mind and soul. Do a few minutes of relaxed breathing and meditation before-hand; and then let me take center stage of your being. I promise you, the gift you receive from this will far exceed what you can imagine. The gift is... giving this time to yourself freely and regularly; making it a ritual. I want you to create a beautiful space for me to write. It need not be elaborate. Surround it with items that are meaningful to us. This way you will look forward to keeping your daily date with me. You'll see...it'll be worth it.
.
* I want you to keep my card on your altar, to remind you of the beauty and healing of journaling; and to remind you that I am here and need to be heard. This is how you will remember me, and invite more illumination into your being. This is by far the biggest gift for both of us. I love you. Remember me.

Just Beautiful Cheryl.

I always find that writing allows me to "earth" all of the thoughts racing around in my head ... they seem to be channeled through my arm and writing implement onto the page ...

Cheryl,
Your card is just wonderful! You''ve place your inner journaler in such safe and comforting surroundings that she will welcome the chance to write and reveal all the gifts she has within.

Love both the image and the words. I find that sometimes I need to write to figure out how I feel about something. This really spoke to me.

Wow! What a beautiful collage. I love the Buddha in the background. Definitely brings to mind inner soul seeking.

I just recently heard of SoulCollage so I'll have to browse around your site and see your other creations.

The images are a beautiful compliment to your thoughtful and inspiring words. Definitely a worthy 'part' of self to honor and encourage. Thank you for sharing with us at Inspire Me Thursday.
