Know yourself. Connect to your magic.
The power of journaling to discover your unique purpose.
I want to let you into something pretty epic. Journaling to find out more about myself has helped me figure out who I am and what I am here for. No mean feat!
Through journaling I have deepened my knowledge about myself and started to really connect to my magic!
I’ve discovered that I am on this beautiful planet to follow my delight! To bring my joie de vivre to the everyday. To try all the things, “fail” at most of them, take the lesson and use this wisdom to help improve the lives of others.
I am a free spirit and I experience more ease and happiness when I am free to play in the flow of life, unrestricted. Oh yes, freedom, one of my highest values.
My biggest challenge is to learn to trust myself and life - this is also a key to unlocking my full potential.
Another key is to learn to express myself and truly be myself without fear or shame.
How have I discovered this about myself? I didn't just pick up a journal and start writing, suddenly knowing all these things, no.
It was actually through serendipity! Through connecting with someone over something else entirely and then being introduced to two absolutely epic wisdom teachings - the Gene Keys and Human Design. That was this Spring (2021) and it has had a hugely profound influence on my life and entirely rerouted my business! I am now retraining as a Quantum Human Design Specialist!
If you've never heard of the Gene Keys, it is described by its founder, Richard Rudd, as "a grand synthesis of practical wisdom to help guide you to a deeper understanding of yourself and your true potential. An inner journey of awakening."
Human Design is another deeply profound body of wisdom that can help you discover your true self. It is like having a manual to your own uniqueness and how to bring that out to have a lot more ease and flow in your life and relationships. That is actually the very least it can do.
The potential for either/or both teachings to dramatically change your life is huge. If you have an interest in self enquiry or you feel like you've not really found your "thing" in life yet, then you are going to LOVE diving in to your Gene Keys and Human Design profiles!
They can both feel a little overwhelming when you first take a look, as there is a lot of info to remember. I am not great at remembering things, so I created my own journal to record all the details down in one place. I kept the rest of it blank so that I could write about what I was learning.
For me it isn’t just about reading books on these subjects and having huge aha moments. These moments come when I journal on what I discover. Writing helps me make sense of things and see the patterns and join the dots.
Knowing all this information about yourself is kind of like having a future CV. Richard Rudd describes it as like having a treasure map to find the true higher purpose of your life!
Another key part of this map for me has been discovering my top VIA strengths:
Appreciation of beauty
Love of learning
Infusing all these learnings together has brought about so much understanding of myself and clarity not only about where I am headed but also around how my life has played out. It is such powerful stuff.
I've blended them all into my journal so that you can create your own future CV too! If you have already bought your journal and would like to know what to do with it, scroll down...
I’ve always been into what used to be called “personal development” and journaling and I can remember my dad taking the mick out of me for it and deeply offending me at a delicate age! Thankfully it has all become a lot more "normal" and mainstream now and at my great age I am finally feeling like I am finding my place in the world!
Deeply understanding things has always been my MO, partly out of a voracious interest and love of learning and partly from fear of never knowing enough (Gate 48).
I’ve had many hats and many jobs since I started washing up in a local restaurant aged 14. From the outside my life has looked like a series of failed attempts, but learning about my human design has enabled me to see things from a different perspective and put my positivity glasses on! In the words of Will Smith “Fail early, fail often, fail forward”. I was actually living my design and trying out a tonne of things and seeing what worked. Trouble is I didn’t realise that I was supposed to be figuring out what wasn’t working, learning the lesson and moving on! Staying stuck in the wrong place feeling like a total failure is very familiar to me!
This year the more I learnt about my human design and how my energy works, the more I discovered how to bring more ease and flow into my life. The more I resonated with my deeper purpose, the more I understood myself and breathed a massive sigh of relief that there is in fact nothing wrong with me! I just need to embrace my quirks and my differences and unashamedly create my own path in life.
I am designed to play with it, have fun, follow my delight and freedom and share the wisdom of what I discover along the way! How cool is that?!
