Journaling can help us to get to the root cause of our limiting beliefs, it can be a healthy outlet for difficult emotions, it's a great way to reflect on our lessons, achievements, and journey. It's also a mindfulness technique, a way to ground ourselves after a busy day.
Below we've given you lots of examples of journal prompts, which you are free to use in order to explore yourself further whilst using your (manifestation) journal. Some of these questions may have already come up for you, others may provoke some deeper thinking. They can be used to understand how you may be transforming during this period, or indeed what further changes you may want to make. Who is this "new" you? Give yourself time to really work through the questions, taking one or two a day is more than enough.
