When there is a plane crash of any kind, especially the larger passenger airlines, the first thing that authorities want to recover is the black box.
The black box contains an indestructible record of the order of events that happened prior to the crash. It is the only true and reliable record that exists because everybody’s account of what happened will differ and vary in their recall.
When you are examining a black box, it is a search for the truth as it happened.
This is the same analogy for a person’s life. You get to any age; a teenager, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, or any age, and you want to understand why your life is off-track – why your life has crashed. When you go back and look at everything that led up to where you are now you can’t remember even half of it.
Do you have a record of some kind or just memories of how you interpret them now? What if you had a black box that chronicled everything that happened in your life that you could refer to and say …
Aha! that’s what happened and that’s where I went off-track.
Most people do not keep any kind of record like this. This is more than a diary of events that happened on a certain day. This is an in-depth “Guided Journal Writing System,” a record of what not only happened but the guidance you received along the way, how you felt about it, what you realized, and then the action you took or not, as a result of your in-depth inquiry, along with the guidance.
Having a record, a black box of your life, from this “Guided Journal Writing System” will give you the reliable record necessary to identify the truth. This Black Box is the true accounting of your life. So, when you are on a quest for the truth later, or at any time in your life, you won’t have to resort to a vague memory of what happened and making it up. A chain of making things up is how you got off-track in the first place.
CALL TO ACTION:
- The black box is the most important part of an airline “after” a crash. Your recovery plan will rely entirely on the daily routine of documenting your life before the crash.
- You have a black box that has been recording your entire life. It’s time to bring it out of hiding.
- Once you open your black box there will be no going back to ignorance.
HOW IT WORKS: What is this “Guided Journal Writing System” the Spirit Guides are talking about? It’s a three-part system, created and written by me, from living it.
My true story, “Guided,” is a chronicle of how, with the help of my Spirit Guides, I was able to rise above the chaos and learn at a higher level. Like stepping into the eye of a hurricane where everything is quiet and calm.
“My Guided Journey” is part two. It’s your journey of re-examining your early life decisions, so you can make better choices now – putting you on your path, living your purpose.
“My Journal Writing” is part three of My Guided Journey. It’s a 15 minute daily ritual, a writing process that identifies what’s going on in your life the moment it happens free of bias or fear. This is your black box. It’s not just writing about what happened, it asks you to describe how it felt, what you realized, and the action you took, or not. It’s important that your journal writing begins with the right mindset, which is why I created support videos for each chapter of part two.
For those of you who are receiving guidance and acting on it while it’s white hot, you may think you won’t need this black box of accounting of how your life is working so seamlessly. But what will you do if a day comes that your magical life crashes? You will only be able to recover it if you have your treasured black box to retrace your steps. Your black box is your insurance policy, but you won’t have it if you don’t take the time to document the details of “how” your life is working while it’s so magical. Having gratitude for the ease upon which your life is currently working, take just 15 minutes each day to write down the important details of how your life is working, your part in it, and most importantly how it feels. ~ Linda Deir
