Handmade Meditation Journal

Finally, I got around to making myself a meditation journal this past weekend.  How did i do it?
Well, I started out by disassembling an old hardcover book and created personalized pages for the inside. After I was done my artsy cover, I then nailed holes through the front and back covers, as well as the inside pages.  I then lovingly stitched the entire thing together and very own Meditation Journal.

Mindfulness is being in the moment and having an awareness of where we have been (reflection) and where we are going (our goals). A meditation journal can help us with all of these areas of awareness, helping us to have a more unified awareness of ourselves.

 When we sit down after meditation and take a few minutes to journal about our experience, it gives us an idea about how effective our meditation that day was.

If we look at our experience, honestly and with a desire to learn, then we become much more aware of what our meditation practice is all about. Through journaling, we can become more aware of both our weaknesses and strengths, having a much better understanding of what we need to work on.


A journal also allows us to take a peek back at our experiences, and how they have changed over a period of time. We can review several days, weeks, or months uncovering the patterns our consciousness follows. Perhaps we’ll discover that we are trying too hard, or that we're putting blocks up in the way of our success.

Lastly, journaling can help us set goals.  Setting goals through meditation, can help us to develop a stronger sense of where we want to go, and how we're going to get there. Through looking back at our past experiences we can see what we need to work on to improve or what blocks need to be removed. Perhaps it’s forgiveness or patience that we need to develop. Perhaps it’s more persistence. Or more calmness. Whatever changes we want to make, having clear goals will help us realized our dreams. Our goals become a magnetic force, allowing us to travel through our experiences, in order to get where we truly want to be in life.

If you would like to order a personalized journal, please inbox me with details :) I promise you won't be disappointed.
