Meditation Journal - Journaling Tool
Meditation opens us to more connection, insights and harmony.
“All man's miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.” – Blaise Pascal
Both dreams and meditation connect us directly with our own deep-seated issues
and truths, thereby providing us with the greatest opportunities for growth.
Insights and experiences in meditation can quickly dissolve. In a meditation journal, make notes immediately after each meditation. Answer questions such as these: How deep did you go? What impressions came to you? How did you feel? What stopped you from going deeper or higher? Do reviews often to see movement in your meditation.
- Find a quiet place to sit with your back erect. Close your eyes and bring to mind a situation for which you would like insights, solutions or ideas. Visualize the situation and examine only the facts. Check in with your feelings, your judgments and perceptions. Then approach the situation from a more expanded, universal, inclusive, altruistic point of view. Relax and allow new perceptions and insights to surface. After meditatively exploring your scenario, write down your experience in your meditation journal. Do this same exercise often throughout the week.
- As you are meditating, connect with a relationship that needs healing. Visualize a connection between both of your hearts. Imagine the heart connection drawing the two of you together so you can have a conversation. Write about your conversation in your meditation journal.
- Meditate daily over a few weeks on a high level quality like love, power, beauty, harmony, or peace and track your insights.
- Meditate on your life purpose for a few weeks and allow clarity and insights to come to you.
“Meditation helps me feel the shape, the texture of my inner life. Here, in the quiet, I can begin to taste what Buddhists would call my true nature, what Jews call the still, small voice, what Christians call the holy spirit.” -- Wayne Muller
