In Part 1, you realized the beliefs you learned and agreed to early on in life are limiting you, and that those beliefs became your truth. In order to awaken from a programmed life, you must first become aware of the authority they hold over you and what you want to change in your reality.

Changing your beliefs change your reality.


Reality is subjective to an individual; it is what you believe it to be. There are social realities with certain customs, moral values, and societal rules with which we agree with. In spiritual circles, it is said that we ‘create our own reality.’

Looking further into this concept, one thing necessary to deepen our understanding of reality is learning to observe yourself within your reality. You are in effect, viewing yourself as the main character in a play and those that surround you are supporting actors.

When you begin to see how you operate in life, you activate your greatest tool—your soul! Your soul has the ability to observe yourself through a wide lens, offering you a perspective of a camera that can pull back or zoom in to see your actions in daily life. The resulting benefit is you’re able to see yourself more clearly and discover how you create the reality you live in.

As you begin to observe yourself, you’ll see what your beliefs have created; your emotional pain, your joy, your hardened heart, your open manner, your lack of connection with yourself and others—the list of how your beliefs create the reality you operate within is endless.

When you are able to honestly see what motivates you to do what you do, the next step of creating your reality is possible—you can begin to change the things you want to. Only you can change what you believe your reality is. And you can change it.

You may feel you’re doing everything to change your reality, but nothing is changing. When this happens, there is something stuck within you. You have what is called an inner blockage. For example, you may struggle with a pattern of self-sabotage, even finding it difficult to help yourself when you know you need to.

You subconsciousness mind might be blocking you to be and do your best through your limiting beliefs. One reason this happens is that, at some level, you have an inner conflict about succeeding. This type of inner conflict occurs when one part of us wants to change, but the other part (often the subconscious) does not because of the fear of success. Simply put, it the Saboteur archetype at work.


Early childhood experiences are the first way we get ideas or beliefs about life and gave you a sense of who you are as a person. The messages you received from your parents, siblings, teachers, and peers taught you something about yourself. As we grow up, we move through life creating experiences to match our beliefs.

We also learn beliefs through school, movies, books, advertisements, and life experiences, to name a few. Beliefs are important because they shape your world—first internally, then externally. If you have not invested in yourself to change a belief and see how it’s affected your life, you will not fully understand this concept.

Beliefs can prevent us from seeing accurately and they can cause pain. Or they can strengthen us.

Write down in your journal the beliefs you have today that you feel are holding you back or limiting you in some way. Keep them at your disposal as you’ll want to revisit them when you are given the steps to change them in the next post.

Here are a few examples that may resonate with you:

“I’m not good enough.”

“I’m afraid to________.”

“I don’t deserve (money, recognition, success).”

“People will judge me.”

“If I succeed, I won’t be able to sustain it.” (This was me.)

“I’m happy with how things are now.”

“I don’t/wouldn’t know where to start.”

Take some time and reflect on what are the major beliefs you have that have an impact on your life. Sit and let yourself be open and honest about where you are in life today and what your current state of reality is. Be ready to take the steps to change. Dig deep inside—go within and muster the courage. It’s there, I know it is.

Until next time,

Increase Your Intuition Through Journaling

Increase Your Intuition Through Journaling


How Can Journaling Increase Intuition?

Writing in a journal about your thoughts, feelings, dreams, images, and physical sensations trains you to pay attention to these ways you receive inner guidance. Keeping a written record is one of the best ways to begin trusting and developing your intuition. It’s a tool for self-discovery.

One of the first things that happens when you write down your observations is that you begin to know yourself better; you get a deeper sense of who you are and are able to explore and unlock your unconscious, revealing hidden aspects.

You also train yourself to pay attention by writing things down. You may get a sudden thought or an urge to do something, like take another route home. If you don’t heed these impressions or cues, you’ll dismiss them as insignificant. But this is exactly the manner in which intuition speaks to you; it is subtle and understated.

Recognizing intuitions when they happen takes discipline.

Everyone is born knowing, having an intricate and highly tuned inner GPS. There are different ways to recognize these messages; you may feel them (clairsentience), you may see them (clairvoyance), or you may hear them (clairaudience).

The key here is to write them down as soon as possible so you have a record where you can revisit them, strengthening your awareness of your intuition and seeing it working in your life. By journaling its presence, you allow intuition to become more evident and influential in your experience.

Discover your intuitive style.

Writing down your messages helps you uncover the major ways you receive them. Some people receive communication through dreams and images, while others through thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations. You may even have a combination of them.

By keeping track of the subtle ways your intuition comes through, you get a sense of your intuitive style, making it easier to recognize it in the future.

There are many benefits to keeping a journal and recording your intuitive messages. They include stress reduction, healing, knowing yourself better, growth, and enhancing your intuition and creativity. The following list contains more specific advantages for employing this tool:

  • Reduces the scatter in your life
  • Detaches and lets go of the past
  • Balances and harmonizes
  • Reveals your greater potential
  • Clarifies thoughts, feelings and behavior
  • Helps you get rid of the masks you wear
  • Creates more results in life
  • Explores your spirituality
  • Improves self-trust and intuition
  • Awakens the inner voice
  • Provides insights

Don’t Know Where to Start?

Just jump in! Get yourself a notebook or a journal (it doesn’t have to be fancy) and a pen or pencil and beginning writing. Ask yourself some thought-provoking questions and ideas. Here are a few:

  • How can I get more stillness and serenity in my life?
  • List 5 things every day you are grateful for.
  • What do I criticize and judge others for?
  • What major blocks need to be resolved?
  • What excuses keep me stuck?
  • List three great ideas or creative things you’ve thought of.
  • When am I my happiest, saddest?

Journaling with intention and purpose has more uses and benefits than any other tools we know. It can truly help us make sense of our world.

Take a leap of faith. Commit to journaling so you can uncover your own inner wisdom.
