It made me wonder why I don’t write one now. So I am going to start journaling.
My friend Sassy Sorceress advises writing two or three pages a day, first thing before you do anything else so that you can get all your worries and concerns, thoughts for the day out of your head and onto the paper. I notice in Christopher Penczak's books that he advises doing the same thing.
I have an online journal that I have had for the past few years, but on looking back over it I realise how little about myself and my spiritual growth I have put in it. Plenty of silly things and where I went and places I visited, but nothing from the heart.I do have a journal for my OBOD work but on looking through that I realise that all my writing is centered around the lessons.
I have a huge Book of Shadows that has changed and grown with me over the years. Initially it contained all sorts of information, every bit of witchcraft text I could find, but in the last couple of years it has been revamped and now only contains information directly related to my path, my pantheons, rituals I have written or taken part in and meditations and spells I have written myself, it is now very personal to me but I have not shared any inner thoughts in it.
My spiritual journey is taking my in new directions and I want to keep a record of how I feel and what new inspirations, thoughts and ideas come to me.
So…I shall start a proper journal – a paper one, and we shall see where it leads me!
