Step 7

This is a space for you to journal - write everything that is going on in your head. What thoughts kept appearing while you were meditating? What is annoying you at the moment? What are you enjoying in your life?

Don’t try to do this perfectly. That is not the aim.

The aim is to get all of your thoughts out of your head and onto paper.
Then have a read through, cross out things that you might disagree with and circle/highlight things that are maybe re-occurring that you can discuss with your coach/therapist.

Use our coaching questions / journal prompts for inspiration. 

Journalling example

Remember to also write down your goals as if they have happened! This way your mind will subconsciously think you have already achieved them... so through the law of attraction you are more likely to achieve them.

Think of it this way, if you keep thinking you have to stop drinking coffee... chances are you will end up drinking more coffee as you will be constantly thinking of coffee!

So, if one of your goals is to become financially free - write “I am so thankful that I am financially free!” everyday. By doing this, you are more likely to see new opportunities & take them whilst everyone else is too busy thinking negative thoughts.
