You can use a journal to be creative, find out more about yourself, develop your intuition and to solve problems. By getting thoughts out of your head and down on paper, you can gain insights about yourself that you might not otherwise see, insights that get lost in your head with all of the other thoughts and worries. It is a tool of self discovery, one that allows you to identify and challenge your core beliefs and thought patterns making it a valuable resource for stress management. It is also a great tool for clearing your throat chakra as it allows you to express yourself when you may not be able to speak your truth verbally. Journaling also provides another medium for communicating with your guides and developing your intuition.
Whatever your reason for using a journal, just do it and have fun in the process.
