Diary Writing . . . Dear God . . .

Most recent entry in my diary 🙂

I have always been a fan of writing, but there is something; which I discovered a few months back that has brought serenity and tranquility to my life. It is a practice that I was introduced to by my meditation classes – diary writing. My instructor encourages each ‘abhyaasi’ (student) to maintain a journal or write to The Master, and she said that drop by drop when you will look back after a few months; you will see and more importantly feel the difference. Since I have always liked to mix and match and create my own flavors, I clubbed this with a few other concepts that I learned – Gratitude journaling, affirmations journaling,  ‘as if’ journaling and writing about intentions with vivid details and emotions.

Ever since then, I have started a practice of writing a diary or letters to God. It’s not a  particular fixated style or school of thought that I follow, but more self-developed and tuned version of diary/ letter writing to God as my friend. I try to write with positivity rather than using ‘NOT’ and ‘DON’Ts’. It has gratitude for the ‘as is’ and ‘as if’ reality. I express my intentions with colors of imagination and feelings. I also pour out my heart, my fears, and vulnerabilities to my friend/father/guide/guru – God. I do not hesitate to ask for his help and guidance when I am low or in a dilemma. I make sure I leave enough room for ‘this or something better’ as I only focus on the ‘What’ and ‘Why’ of my wants, rather than the ‘How’. I try leaving the ‘how’ bit of things, open-ended…

I find this as a highly creative and intuitive process. Each letter is different and unique and retains its charm. I tend to learn more about myself in this process and also feel much lighter post this exercise. I recently wrote a letter after an extended break and it feels nice and light.

Writing is my stress buster, what about you?
