Show Notes

When we encounter unexpected change, the shift in experience can knock us off our centre. Certainty is replaced with unpredictability, and that can leave us feeling exposed, vulnerable, and even unsafe.

When our emotions are high, intelligence can be low. In turn, it's harder to think clearly. This can lead to inertia and a feeling of stuckness.

The spiral gets reinforced!

"When there's chaos in our lives, being able to come back to ourselves, recalibrate, and feel grounded in who we are is a powerful way to navigate life's ups and downs."

Journaling is a powerful tool that can help you empower yourself in moments like these. In turn, you can connect with your inner wisdom, clear your head, and get clarity on what to do next.

Tune into this episode to discover three powerful techniques that you can use together to move through a challenge and empower yourself.

We're exploring:

  • What is empowerment? 
  • Feeling out of control because of external circumstances and situations. 
  • When our emotions are high our intelligence is low. 
  • Journaling as a gateway tool to navigate triggers. 
  • Three techniques to find your centre.  

"When we find that calmer place, the intelligence returns, the answers show up and we feel more empowered to move forward."

  • How to use stream of consciousness journaling to uncensor your expression.
  • The power of acknowledgement and radical honesty.
  • Lubricating throughs with journaling prompts. 
  • Tapping into your intuition through journaling prompts.  
  • Creating momentum through lists to overcome inertia. 

"Pure expression is super potent."
