Powerful Ways to Reach a Breakthrough While Journaling

When it comes to journaling, there's a lot of talk about breakthroughs. How do we actually reach a breakthrough while journaling? I've got a few tricks to help you get there.

First of all, if you're a beginner at journaling – don't worry, you're not blocked from breakthroughs. You just need to get serious in the time you spend writing about your thoughts and feelings.

How to reach breakthroughs in journaling

I personally believe that anything in life needs to begin with a whole heart. You can't enter into a new way of healing, like journaling, without fully believing that things are going change. Give it your full heart. Believe that journaling will be one form of healing and, Sister, I promise you, it will happen.

What is a breakthrough?

So, now that I've got that out of the way – let's talk about the magic of breakthroughs during journaling. A breakthrough is much like an epiphany. It's a sudden realization or discovery. I always think of breakthroughs as getting over a physical hurdle. You've tried many techniques but nothing gets you quite there. Then, suddenly, it comes to you and everything makes sense that didn't before.

How do breakthroughs happen with writing?

Mental or emotional breakthroughs tend to happen after you've cleared an energy that was blocking you. It can come once you've finally faced an emotion that you've been ignoring or after you've let go of resentment. Breakthroughs may happen after you finally forgiven or apologized.

Powerful Ways to Reach a Breakthrough While Journaling

There are a variety of incredibly powerful ways to set yourself up for breakthroughs – if you're truly willing to do the work. Let's get into it.

Using journals the right way

1. Write after meditating or during.

When you meditate, you reach deeper parts of your mind. I believe you reach the depths of your soul when you're fully in a meditation. While others may encourage you to “clear your mind while meditating,” I don't necessarily believe that's the goal.

I think it's a great time to address the thoughts that do come up. Here are a few things to consider when combining meditation and journaling, in order to reach a breakthrough:

  • What am I feeling in this moment?
  • What thoughts keep coming back to me, over and over again?
  • What exact emotions am I experiencing and what is causing them?
  • What am I wanting to accomplish with this specific meditation/.

You may not know the answers right away, but these questions are worth exploring to see what you can find. I personally have experienced breakthroughs when asking myself, “Why am I experiencing these emotions” and “what experiences in my life can I tie to these emotions?”.

2. Journal after an intense workout

There's something about a really intense workout that can bring you outside of yourself. You're pushing yourself harder than usual, reaching a new headspace. This new depth is the perfect time to journal about strengths and weaknesses.

For me, personally, I use negative and difficult emotions to push me through intense workouts – like anger, sadness, grief, and frustration.

Afterwards, I take the time to write down what my drive was, how it made me feel, and how I can release these emotions.

3. Be consistent.

Additionally, consistency can help you become more comfortable with journaling. Think of your journal as a new friend. The more more talk to the friend, the more you open up to him or her. You build trust with the friend over time. Your journal is your friend who will let you vent as much as you need.

4. Journal about your dreams.

Journaling about your dreams will open you up to a new realm of worlds and emotions. If you have trouble remembering your dreams, I recommend exploring the world of crystals to help you.

When you wake up, even in the middle of the night, write down your dream. Include all the details, feelings, and people. Even if it doesn't make sense – write it down and see what comes up in your heart.

5. Just write. Even when you don't want to.

Finally, I want you to try to just write. Even if you don't have something to write about. You can write to tell a story, real or imaginary. Write a list or a memory. Simply write your words in an attempt to clear your mind.

How to get a breakthrough

Experiencing a breakthrough while journaling isn't something that will happen every time. In fact, I've found that my breakthroughs only come when I least expect them. But sister, I promise you, they are magical when they do come.

There's a whole world inside of you just waiting to be discovered. So, sit down, grab a journal and get to writing.
