“The purpose of journaling (journal writing) is to document your journey, so you realize who you are and why you came here. Once you do this you will never doubt yourself again …

While people go to great lengths to document their vacations or world travels, they avoid documenting the most important journey, their own lives. They allow life to run them around without knowing where they’re going and where they came from. This will prevent you from performing at a high level of intention on your journey here.


Your goal is to direct how you travel in this life, your journey, your path.

Once you decide to start journaling you must go back to where it all began – when you were born. You, as a new person, came into this world knowing you could do anything and this life could take you anywhere. But along the way, you forgot your map, your guidebook to getting to where it was that you wanted to go.

The first thing you missed is that you failed to document your actions and feelings and bring them into this world, grounding them here, so to speak, so you had a reliable map on your journey forward. When you were young you may have kept a diary with all your secret thoughts and feelings locked deep inside.

When writing your life’s journey you will no longer be able to keep it locked up inside.

That’s what’s been hurting you. You have to bring those memories out of the ethers. It starts by writing them down and studying them so you know where you started, where you are now, and what you must do to reach your desired destination.

You wouldn’t ever go driving on a long journey without a map or a GPS system. Why do you think you can reach your life’s goals and destination without a roadmap … your “guided journal writing system?”

Look at the people you know who may have had good intentions, following the standards everyone else followed. They got a good education, a good job, a good relationship, and have the ideal family but they are not happy. Somewhere along their path, they got distracted by things that lacked truth and meaning for them. Their lives became a series of repetitive actions that merely got them to the next day. After doing this for decades they lost track of who they were when they first came into this world. They missed the life they could have had, the life they intended to have.

It’s still not too late to go back to the beginning and discover what you came in with and see where you got off your path, where you missed the guidance, the signposts along the way that could have gotten you to where you wanted sooner.

By going back and putting your life under a microscope you will be able to not only understand your life up to this point but know how to listen for guidance. In four steps you will learn to;

  1. Write down the guidance you received.
  2. How it felt.
  3. What you realized.
  4. The action you took.


  • What is it in your life that you are disappointed with? Identify the things that bother you. Look back to see how these things pushed you off your path and prevented you from living the life you intended. Write that in your journal.
  • Make a commitment to journal all of the messages and guidance you receive. Do this for the next month. When you look back you will see how everything is connected.
  • Achieving superior clarity, you will now be committed to continuing to document your guided journey.   

How It Works: Consider your journal writing to be the building blocks upon which your life starts to make sense … really make sense. This will become your point of contact with your Spirit Guides and Angels. I can tell you from doing this from childhood, that in the beginning, it may feel like you are doing something covert. The reason I felt that way is that if anyone knew what I was writing they would have created a problem for me. It’s not that I was writing anything mean or judgmental, just writing about what I observed, learned, and understood. I was writing about what was truly happening, writing it like I was talking to a best friend, someone I could totally trust – trust with my open heart.

That’s how I was able to see so clearly, see what my Spirit Guides saw, the truth. The truth shouldn’t be so damning, but many people see it as a threat and that’s where the problems start. So as you start your journal writing journey just keep it to yourself. You are on a journey back to your real self, the one who got left behind. This is a journey worth taking – your awakening. ~ Linda Deir
