I have found writing to be therapeutic–cathartic even! About a decade ago, I was helping people write, edit, publish, and market their books. I noticed how a client would get to a certain point in their story and get stuck. That’s when I would switch into my spiritual coach mode and help them process the emotional energy behind the block. When I noticed I was doing as much coaching as I was editing books, I let go of the editing and writing services business. This allowed me to move forward with my calling as a spiritual coach.
I have always loved to write. Even as a child, I had a pink diary with a golden lock and key where I expressed my deepest feelings. When I was moving from Sweethome in 2019, I threw away journals that I felt were no longer important to me. Most of my spiritual journey had been told in the books I’ve written and published. So, I stopped journaling for a while.
Last winter, YouTube recommended I watch a video about junk journals. I was intrigued–mesmerized actually. I watched tutorials and flip-throughs for hours. Then, I subscribed to other channels offering inspiration on how to make them. Thus, began my new love for making these one-of-a-kind handmade journals.
I gave several of the handmade journals to my friends, family members, and charities as I was learning to make covers, bind signatures, and embellish the interiors. It is enjoyable to flip through the pages, open tucks and flaps to discover hidden places to write about intimate things that I did not want to be visible as soon as the journal was opened.
I kept some journals and began to write about whatever was going on in my day. I also was drawing pictures, and writing light language symbols as part of the page entry. I felt inspired to open a booth and sell them at a local art center. That venture is going well.
This summer, the idea came to create a paperback journal to help people activate light language and use writing as part of a healing path. Using Amazon.com as my printer and distributor, would allow me to offer the book to an international market and expand my reach to help people activate written light language and use journal writing for spiritual growth.
Following my heart inspiration, I created a printed paperback light language journal that can be purchased on Amazon. The 8.5″ x 11″ journal titled Journaling with Light Language ~ Developing Intimacy with Yourself through Written, Artistic, and Verbal Expressions is now available.
