3 Key Points:

  • By just sitting down and really getting clear of what your heart desires of where you want to be in your life, in your business, in your relationships, in your house, in your wealth, in your influence, whatever it is just sit down and write it all out.
  • If you’re already journaling, please do so, just look back like a year ago, like pick one of your old journals and have a read through it and see what you already have accomplished. So, therefore, I call it the art of journaling.
  • Combine what you’re writing with your emotions because your thoughts will create your feelings, your emotions. And those emotions will set you in motion. So you will act differently when you feel amazing.

Show Notes:

[04:25] I’m taking the journaling to I write out my future like it is already my reality.

[05:37] So my soulmate client always finds me, she connects with me right away. And it’s so wonderful to see that I can be of such a massive support, that she is willing to pay me for my gifts, that she makes it happen.

[07:08] Sometimes maybe it might be half an hour. And sometimes she just decided that you want to have that deep dive session with yourself. And from that place, maybe it takes you an hour. Maybe it takes you even longer. But you gain that clarity.

[08:19] It’s interesting when you started journaling, like when now I look back and I read for example, in one of my journals from three years ago, from two years ago, just to realize how much has actually manifested from only the idea I had back then, from having the courage to write it down, from really trying on that idea to play with it in my head. And then obviously to take massive action, and to do what it takes to make it real, to just to stop dreaming and to act now.

[09:20] Because what you do is you really take what’s not there yet, but you can see it, you can feel it, you can be at that moment. And however, like how big your dreams are, just know you will grow into them. Just know there will be so many positive side effects. Probably also some difficult lessons to learn. But that’s what we’re here for.

[10:46] So when you really start to write that out, you might feel some resistance. And you might think to yourself, “Well, it’s just not true. I’m not there yet.” But that’s it. That’s secret, that’s a key, you are not there yet.

[11:24] So make sure you write it out in as much detail as you can, and feel the feelings like it would be already your truth. And then when you really feel like, “I don’t know what to do.” Well ask yourself on paper, “If I knew what to do, what would I be doing?” And it might just give you one or two little ideas. But with those ideas, you can grow over time, you just need like one of those starting blocks for the for the runners, then they have these starting blocks, right you get in and then you wait to the signal that you can start running. And that’s the same as journaling.

[13:39] Practice journaling, make it an art. Because this is how you create your life, your business, your dreams, with so much more ease. Because once we have the clarity, we having the right thoughts that are empowering us.

Christine Schlonski [2:07]
So let’s talk about the art of journaling. And this is something I really had to learn about five years ago. And it made such a huge difference in my life. So when I was younger, I started to journal around the age of 14, I would say, it was right at the time where my grandma passed away. And my pain was so big, and I couldn’t express it. So I started to write it down. And so I basically had a conversation with her, telling her how my day was, what was going on in my life, about the cute boys in school, like all that kind of stuff. But it never occurred to me that I could journal out my future. So this is something, well, if you look back at my life, something I have learned recently, about five years ago, where one of my mentors taught me about journaling and how she was using it in her business and life to create massive results. And I’ve loved that so much, that from that day on I started journaling. And I really, really gained a lot of clarity. And it really helped not just my life, but my business to thrive. Because I got really clear. And five years ago, I still wasn’t my job. So it helped both sides, like my job and then later my business or the business that I was creating back then. And it definitely is so helpful that I really want to share that with you in this episode.

Christine Schlonski [3:51]
So if you imagine you are not just writing down your day, you’re not just writing while, yesterday was a wonderful day, the sun was out, I had toast for breakfast, and I went to my job and it was great and I talked to my colleague, Nancy, and it’s not so going well with her boyfriend. But you know, for my relationship, it’s really awesome. Whatever, just don’t write stuff like that, it’s okay to take some notes if there were like major events you don’t want to forget. But what I’m taking the journaling for is that I write out my future, like it is already my reality. So for example, if we have a look at sales, I would say, well, I am so happy and grateful for all the amazing clients that are working with me. I’m so happy and grateful that they are saying yes to themselves, that they are realizing that sales is love, that they are ready to take action, that they are in such a place where they are so fed up with their results, that they can see they have to do something to move forward and they really wish to thrive. They really want to give their gifts to the world. And therefore I am the perfect person to go to. And I’m so happy that they found me and that we are getting to work together. I’m so happy that my ideal client, my soulmate client, which I did, by the way, a whole episode on soulmate clients, I believe it’s Episode Number 086, if you want to check that out. So my soul mate client always finds me, she connects with me right away. And it’s so wonderful to see that I can be of such a massive support, that she is willing to pay me for my gifts, that she makes it happen. She does whatever it is takes. If she has trouble because the budget is not there, because her sales are not good enough, she finds away.

Christine Schlonski [6:10]
I go about my business and my life. And I write out how I wanted to be, like I am spending lots of quality time with my husband, while still having that harmony in life where I can work, where I can do what I love, where I don’t need to take a look at my watch. Because I just know, I don’t have to go somewhere, I don’t have to be somewhere, I can just create whatever I want to create. So by just sitting down and really getting clear of what your heart desires of where you want to be in your life, in your business, in your relationships, in your house, in your wealth, in your influence, whatever it is just sit down and write it all out. And that can be that you give it just five minutes a day. Sometimes maybe it might be half an hour. And sometimes she just decided that you want to have that deep dive session with yourself. And from that place, maybe it takes you an hour. Maybe it takes you even longer. But you gain that clarity, right.

Christine Schlonski [7:28]
So this is basically how I create my business. I write it out. And I usually, I do not take my computer for that. I really have pen and paper wherever I go in this beautiful world. And when I see a bookshop, I’m always excited because I always check, do they have stationary? Do they have journals? What do they have? And I can go crazy on journalists, I have the most beautiful journals because I collect them wherever I go. And for me, personally, they need to be softcover because I do carry them with me. So it can very well be that have the journal in my purse. And whenever I feel inspired, I just take it out. And I write something in it like this, I keep track. And it’s interesting when you started journaling, like when now I look back and I read for example, in one of my journals from three years ago, from two years ago, just to realize how much has actually manifested from only the idea I had back then, from having the courage to write it down, from really trying on that idea to play with it in my head. And then obviously to take massive action, and to do what it takes to make it real, to just to stop dreaming and to act now. You will have the same amazement when you look back at your journals. And if you’re already journaling, please do so, just look back like a year ago, like pick one of your old journals and have a read through it and see what you already have accomplished. So, therefore, I call it the art of journaling.

Christine Schlonski [9:20]
Because what you do is you really take what’s not there yet, but you can see it, you can feel it, you can be at that moment. And however, like how big your dreams are, just know you will grow into them. Just know there will be so many positive side effects. Probably also some difficult lessons to learn. But that’s what we’re here for. So by just journaling, and writing it out the way you want it, feeling how you want to feel in that moment when what you just have written down is true. That would really help you to manifest and a big massive way, combine what you’re writing with your emotions, because your thoughts will create your feelings, your emotions. And those emotions will set you in motion. So you will act differently when you feel amazing. Then when you feel sad, when you feel empowered, you will make different decisions than when you feel disempowered and small and useless. So when you really start to write that out, you might feel some resistance. And you might think to yourself, “Well, it’s just not true. I’m not there yet.” But that’s it. That’s secret, that’s a key, you are not there yet. But if you never think about it, if you never get clear of what you really truly desire. Well, guess what, you will never be there. Because you don’t know how to express it. You don’t know what steps to take to get there. You don’t know how to align yourself. So make sure you write it out in as much detail as you can, and feel the feelings like it would be already your truth. And then when you really feel like, “I don’t know what to do.” Well ask yourself on paper, “If I knew what to do, what would I be doing?” And it might just give you one or two little ideas. But with those ideas, you can grow over time, you just need like one of those starting blocks for the for the runners, then they have these starting blocks, right you get in and then you wait to the signal that you can start running. And that’s the same as journaling, you just start. That doesn’t mean you come in first because there is no comparison anyway. But it just means you take one step at a time. One step at the time is all it needs. Because after 100 steps, you’re so much further along than after your second step. But the key is to keep moving, to keep at it, to really do what it takes. So make a decision today. If you have not already, get yourself a beautiful journey, you can take a piece of paper right now that doesn’t matter. Don’t take it as an excuse that you do not know, that you do not have the most beautiful journal yet. Just when you’re out and about, have a look, have a look at your next bookstore. And see Do they have stationery and journals and pick a journal app that inspires you when you take it. So I have like the most beautiful journals. I had one where like, it was beautiful paintings. And they’re showing the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe and I love Paris. So that inspired me. Now I’m writing and one it’s all sparkly, which is a lot of fun. And you will find what resonates with you. And then really, really practice journaling, make it an art. Because this is how you create your life, your business, your dreams, with so much more ease. Because once we have the clarity, we having the right thoughts that are empowering us, with the right sorts, we will take the right action. And this right actions, we will get the right results. Right, that’s a logical step by step by step blueprint so to speak. So don’t vary on the how just think about the end result. And then sit down and dry that out. And keep at it if you can, each and every day. If you can’t manage that, try at least every other day or three or four times a week, you will start loving it. And after a while it will be like breathing, you will need it every single day to get focused, to get centered. And to really, you will be so inspired of what will happen, that you can’t stop, that you will teach others like I’m doing now to journal. So do yourself this favor.

Christine Schlonski [14:54]
And this is my challenge to you to the next, Variety Friday, in a week. Now, get your journal, get a beautiful pen, and sit down and start journaling at least three times till next Friday. And get really clear on your dreams on your desires. What you want, what your heart is looking for, and take the first steps. And you will notice how that puts a smile on your face, how you will feel a different kind of energy, how you will be m powered.

Christine Schlonski [15:32]
