Expanding Self-Awareness With Visual Journaling
Visual journaling has opened a whole new way of increasing self-awareness for myself and my clients.
Through visual journaling, I can give birth to possibility, heal a wound, more deeply understand myself, and identify limiting beliefs.
It is subtle and the meaning of the visual happens in gentle layers. The process is meditative, soothing, and calming. A visual journal combines words and images – but typically leads with images.
In coaching school, I was required to journal. I’d only ever kept a diary-like journal up to that point but I was open to experimenting. As much as I like writing, I also noticed some elements of my journaling that were curious. I would doodle all over the page while I was thinking about what to write. And, I almost always write in color. I usually reach for a color that somehow resonates with the mood I am in when I began to write in my journal.
It doesn’t matter that I’m not an artist.
I am learning techniques that I can use that get my ideas expressed visually and I know that there are endless techniques for me to learn and play with.
As a coach, I have begun inviting my clients to work with coaching questions in a visual way and am incorporating visual projects into my group coaching programs.
