How would you find out unless you spend the time developing these ideas and skills. Like anything you do, it takes practice to develop mastery in a specific craft.
Start the process by getting yourself a book to write in, even a simple spiral bound notebook like mine will be okay.
A simple book is all you need to start to write a journal. Writing in a journal should be quite natural.
To commence the practice having a purpose bought book to write in is all that is required to get started.
Just make sure that the book you are going to write in is one that makes you feel good when you look at it.
Once you have been writing for a while you may want to replace the book with something else but an expensive book is not needed to get you started.
Using a book that you mentally know is your journal makes it easier to get started, as there is somewhere special for you to write in.
Have you ever read a diary or journal written by someone from the past. Reading a journal written a long time ago may give you a new perspective and appreciation of your life.
It is even more interesting if that person is related to you, so think about what it might be like for your children's children to read about what your life was like.
By writing in a journal every day and recording the events of your family in this way, you will be able to look back and see what happened, and when.
Do you remember details of when your grandchild baby was born? What was their first day at school like? When did your baby take their first step?
Do you remember the details of the day you picked up that new car? What about the day you caught that whopping big fish or your first hole in one!
So many things happen in life and you forget about how much joy and delight you felt at the time.
By recording these daily events in your journal you will be able to look back at how things were and feel gratitude for these positive experiences.
Using crystals that aid written communication may help you to write better.
Most of the blue throat chakra crystals are excellent stones to aid written communication, including Indicolite or Blue Tourmaline, Shattuckite, Baryte and Blue Topaz.
Other crystals that may benefit you by being combined with your daily writing in a journal are the high vibration stones Natrolite, Herderite and Yttrium Fluorite which will aid you to develop automatic writing.
