Relationship Clarity Course
Setting Your Intention
In this course we’ll be calling upon your powerful inner resources and really listening within to make this process meaningful to you. And a really powerful process for this is reflective writing.
Each week I’ll be offering you one or two brief writing prompts for you to reflect on this work. This is really important because it is IN REFLECTION that new learning and awareness happens.
Author Janet Conner calls this Writing Down Your Soul. Other people call it journaling. In order to uncover our deepest truths, the truth about what really matters to us, what really makes us happy, what we really want and need in our life and relationship, we have to get deeply in touch with that voice within, our inner knowing and guidance that shows us the way to what feels right and true.
And this method of getting in touch with that inner guidance is actually very simple. All you need is a notebook or journal and a pen. You can even write on the computer a word processing software. But I find that pen and paper flow better.
You can simply write your response to the prompt in your journal or in the space below (you will be automatically emailed a copy. I will receive a notification that you completed this section of the lesson, but I will not receive the content of your entry).
Also, before picking up a pen, I encourage you to take a few deep breaths before writing. “Before picking up a pen, try an entrance meditation to transition into a state of mindfulness,” says Kathleen Adams, author of Journal to the Self. “Your ritual might be savoring a cup of tea, listening to classical music, trying a few yoga poses, or just petting your cat on your lap,” according to Adams. “It can even be as brief as closing your eyes and taking three deep breaths.”
