Q&A: “What Questions Do You Have About Journaling?”

Posted on December 22, 2016
Every other week, I post a special episode of JournalTalk devoted to a specific question that I’ve received from fans, followers or friends about some aspect of journal-writing. I enjoy sharing my perspective, and giving examples from the 30+ years that I’ve been keeping a journal. But even more, I love the conversation with others. That’s why I usually invite a co-host with me to answer these questions together. The synergy and stimulation offer more valuable jewels and gems Read more

Journal Prompt: “What Do I Want?”

Posted on December 11, 2016
I spent some time today with a dear friend, Elaine Flanders, author of the blog website, “Life in the E-Lane!” who reminded me of the power of this simple self-query: “What do I want?” During our walk today, Elaine kept using the phrase “What do I want,” as a means to keep her awareness focused on expanding the experience of good things in her world. We chuckled, remembering the video clip about this subject on YouTube, from the movie, The Notebook. Your Read more

Journaling Like God

Posted on July 19, 2016
My guest this week asks us to consider that perhaps our journals are not really private. Maybe the pages we write are a collaboration with a universal spirit, a co-author in our life experience. Join me in an open-minded dialogue with Maryann Patalano, a religious science practitioner and author of the book, Journal Like God, as we explore the mindset and possibility that we aren’t just venting into our journal-writing, but we are actively and continuously creating. Maryann shares an Read more

Fantasy Journaling (Part 3 of 3)

Posted on July 13, 2016
Part three of our series in fantasy journaling features Anne Marvin‘s concept of finding truth in fantasy — finding out what you really want, by exploring the worlds of fantasy and make-believe. Anne has a background in federal nuclear weapons policy, but confesses she also enjoys “deep thoughts while reading vampire porn.” Her blog is loaded with tips that help us detach from the mundane day-to-day, and re-connect with stories that elicit passion and inspiration. Many Read more

Fantasy Journaling (Part 2 of 3)

Posted on July 6, 2016
Have I got a story for you. In the previous episode, I introduced the concept of “fantasy journaling” — writing in a private diary, about events that never actually took place, as if they had. In this episode, I’m joined by my friend, “Janet-from-another-Planet” as I share about the most interesting and extreme version of fantasy journaling I could find: A stay-at-home housewife and mom of four sons is writing letters to her high-school sweetheart, in order Read more

Fantasy Journaling (Part 1 of 3)

Posted on June 29, 2016
Sweeping through my boxes of old journal books, I happened upon a passage that I wrote in college — a detailed account of a semi-erotic interaction with someone on whom I had a secret crush. Wait a minute, I thought, as my neurons raced to retrieve my inner journal logs for comparison, I don’t remember this ever happening! After reading a few pages, and with a giant grin, I realized that I had written out a fantasy. And it made me stop to consider the value of such an exercise, Read more

Metaphors for Spiritual Growth

Posted on May 17, 2016
You don’t have to believe that Dorothy Gale was a real Kansas farmer’s niece, or acknowledge the existence of a magical Munchkinland in order to gain insights and inspiration for finding your own (yellow-brick) path home. Similarly, you can draw upon a number of powerful images and stories to deepen your spiritual journey, without committing to a belief in their scientific truth. My guest this week, Julianne Victoria, offers a variety of domains, rich with symbolic references, from Read more
