I continue my almost daily practice of writing in my Inner Work Journal and after only 4 months, I'm ready to start a new one for December. I began "Chase your rainbow" in August and here it is complete - the pink tags mark where Sept/Oct/Nov started so you can see I wrote quite a lot each month.
I LOVE this practice and am excited to explore December and 2019 in my new Inner Work Journal : Dream, Create, Inspire
It's just a cheap hard cover lined exercise book. I usually alter my covers in some way, but this time I love the words, and we're heading into Summer hols so I'm leaving it like this for now. First page of the journal set up = I add my page numbers as I go so I can refer back later.
On the left is a lovely image a friend shared on FB - this is the kind of inspiration I print out for my journal. My monthly set-up includes a To Do list - keeping my expectations moderate this month since I have so many social and work engagements....Click on any of these photos to see them larger.
These next pages are where I note my weekly Oracle and keep a record of when I draw Tarot, and on the right, the first of my December pages where I keep brief notes of daily events (rather than my feelings about them).
This is what a completed week looks like :
When I draw my weekly Oracle card to focus and think about, I note that at the top of my daily happenings, and have got into the habit of picking 2 or 3 photos as highlights of my week. These very quickly bring to mind the shape of my week when I glance back. The printed pages are from the PDF planner I purchased last year - I will be purchasing this for 2019 - excited there is a Southern Hemisphere version this time.
On the pages following this monthly set-up is my actual journaling - writing almost daily, drawing Tarot as a way of digging in to what I'm feeling. This is an example from last month
I also want to do her Year of Rumi - I have ideas about maybe doing this class as small art quilts
Bundling is cheaper for payment. And I thought that would be all, except I am also in love with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's current posts about her Gelli journal - see pages HERE and HERE. She has an online class which I really wanted and she had an early bird deal for November which turned out to be an early Christmas present for me. Just begun and I will share when I have time to explore.
I usually do a post where I share Christmas inspirations for you. This year I'm just going to suggest you click HERE for my past sharing of Christmas posts including ideas for December Daily journals and free online offerings. Wishing you a lovely December - make sure you take the time to do some creative nurturing for yourself ♥
