Journaling to manifest your goals is an alternative to traditional goal setting. The nature of goal setting and New Year resolutions is that they are mostly coming from thoughts and reason.
For example, you see that you are overweight and in your mind, you reason that it would be good to lose weight. Now you use the new year as a reason to set a new goal.
Goals vs. Visions
Setting goals and new years resolutions like this has a high likelihood of failure. When you only set goals from a thought level, likely you are not emotionally on board and you don’t have a vision.
When you instead use journaling to manifest your goals in 2021, you form a vision that is fully charged with emotions. And emotions are the driving force of our actions.
In the process of this journaling practice, you are also being very specific about your goal. This specificity helps to have a clear picture in your mind of what it is that you want and ultimately you will know exactly what to do.
Journaling to manifest your goals in 2021
To start this practice, I invite you to take out your journal. If you don’t have one, take out a nice sheet of paper and a pencil. On the very top of the page, you write the current date plus one year.
So for example, 1.01.2022.
When we are journaling about your goals for 2021, we will write about them as if they already happened. So whenever you are asked about what you have achieved, in the journaling to manifest your goals in 2021, think about what you wanted to achieve. That way we make your goals already history and you are more likely to achieve them. Now we will do a quick meditation to bring you into the next year to then journal about what you have achieved.
