For those of you who follow me on YouTube or Twitter or Instagram (and if you don’t, why not?!), you will know that I am a huge fan of mindfulness, meditation and journalling, in addition to my love of tarot of course. Ultimately I believe all of these elements can work together to help with our spiritual journey and, possibly more importantly, our growth. You’ll also know I’m a huge fan of a wee cuppa tea with my tarot reading sessions. However, what you may not know is that I am a lover of stationery. What can I say, it brings me joy! I could spend a lot of time procrastinating through decorating beautiful notebooks that I’ve bought, ensuring that the inside looks as beautiful as the outside…and I wouldn’t consider it a waste of time. It’s an investment.
I now rarely travel without a notebook to hand- ideas for my next tarot update, my thoughts for the day. You could claim that my blog has increasingly become my ‘journalling’ space, sharing my ideas with the wider tarot, meditation, mindfulness and journal lovers communities. I know you are all out there.
There is therapy in the things we write, in how we write them, in logging our thoughts and ideas of scenarios, especially as they unfold in our lives. Sometimes there is even a reason to reflect on them, to go back and look at the road we’ve trodden, the lessons we’ve learnt along the way. Hindsight is an amazing thing…but so is self reflection and investment.
With that in mind, I have provided a selection of some of my favourite journals on the market to encourage you on your ‘journalling journey’. They are quite simply, beautiful…
