Journal Technique: Inner Voice

by Ruth Folit

The Inner Voice technique is good way to journal when you can’t think what to write, or if you feel disconnected from yourself and want to get back in touch. I sometimes use the Inner Voice as a technique when I’m feeling scattered and unfocused; it helps me slow down and settle into a calmer place.

Using the Inner Voice technique itself is simple, and doesn’t require any special tools: Sit quietly and listen to your internal conversations. Write what you hear. The thing to remember is to remember to use this technique when you feel out of sorts.

One technique you can use to contact your inner voice to is to close your eye and count backwards from 50.  As you count you’ll be surprised that you brain is spinning out thoughts. Start writing.
