Thought I'd pass this information on since much of what we do here on AAC is write, write, write looking for answers...

So many people do not know the processes by which they think, create, learn and intuit. They also do not realise that they have all they need to know--all the answers and the wisdom they could ever need--within themselves. This knowledge and wisdom can be tapped using the right tools and techniques.

Journaling is a key to knowing oneself. It enables us to better understand who we are by studying our thoughts when they are written down. Different journaling exercises encourage us to think in different ways. In our records of our thoughts, we can explore different sides of our nature. We can see beliefs that hold us back. We can get a glimpse of our potential and then see ourselves realize it. We can discover insights, creativity and wisdom we didn't know we had.

Journaling enables us to work with the vast resources of our subconscious minds. On the one hand, it causes information from our conscious minds to be anchored more deeply in the subconscious. On the other hand, it allows us to retrieve information from our subconscious that is not normally available to us.

There are many reasons why journaling is such a powerful, multi-use tool. If you only HEAR information, you typically recall 10% to 20% of what you heard. If you WRITE it down, you can double your memory to 20% to 40% because writing is kinesthetic--you use more of your senses. And then if you REVIEW it, you can double your memory again to 40% to 80% because you anchor the material from different perspectives.

Through journaling, information is anchored more deeply in the subconscious because we can see it, some people sub-vocalize it and we become kinesthetic through our writing. Also, journaling draws information out of our heads and keeps it in front of our eyes where we can group it, add to it, re-examine it and change it. We then bring the information back into our minds, which is how most of us learn. Visually we can see and do more with the information. Most creative people continually doodle and make lots of notes and lists.

By writing things down we capture our flighty thoughts. (You think about 60,000 thoughts per day. How many are you aware of?) Our minds work at about 1000 words per minute, but when we write, the mind slows down to about 100 words a minute, allowing thoughts to be recorded more deeply and supporting a more focused, creative thinking process. As information is reviewed, it is further integrated. New dimensions can be seen, individual events can be connected and we can draw on our intuition to bring more meaning to the material.

Thank you, loving life. The time I have spent drawing out my own wisdom from within on this site and on my own has been very insightful.

I should add, though, that I seem to have a huge problem acting on all the insight I've gained!
