How to Use the Journal
Dr. Stacey Thomas, a psychologist and the author of the Growing Forward journal, guides individuals on a transformative journey through life’s challenges. The journal features a structure of seven days of self-exploration and reflection, followed by an action plan and meditative contemplation. Expressive writing in the journal serves as a means of self-discovery, with an emphasis on stream-of-consciousness writing and a mind-body-spirit approach. Dr. Stacey advocates starting and ending each journaling session with guided meditation to foster creativity and intuition. This practice, when incorporated regularly, unlocks unexpected wisdom and transformative experiences. It is a tool for accessing truth, healing, and self-discovery.
