Think It and Ink It!
"The more you use your brain, more brain you will have to use." -- George A. Dorsey
Is your mind your best friend or your worst enemy?
It can be our worst enemy when we donít know how it works. Because then, our thoughts think us. Almost all of what we do, think and say comes from old patterns in our subconscious minds. This old thinking is typically repetitive and shallow. And because itís often negative and limiting, it sabotages our dreams.
So few of us know how we think, create, learn or intuit. We take our mental processes for granted. When we do this, we lose our creative genius - we barely scratch surface of our immense mental capacity. So how do we break from these stuck, limiting patterns? With journaling! Think It and Ink It
Journaling is a process of quickly capturing our thoughts and feelings on paper. Unless we write them down, thoughts too easily disappear. We donít realize that we continue to think same old thoughts, over and over again. You think about 60,000 thoughts per day. How many are you aware of?
Once we can see what weíre thinking on paper, we can learn to think in different ways. When information is kept in front of our eyes, we can group it, synthesize it, add to it and change it. We can consider our notes from different perspectives. As we work with information on paper, we bring it back into our minds - this is how most of us learn. Journaling also enables us to both draw from and plant new supportive information into our subconscious.
More importantly, our minds work at about 1000 words per minute, but when we write, we slow down to about 100 words a minute. This allows thoughts to be recorded more deeply. It also supports a more focused, creative thinking process. We are able to see and sense between written words. We can also see and sense synergy and new interpretations of many words at once. Thatís why journaling brings up so many insights and fresh ideas.
