This is a JOURNAL, not a diary!

Journal for Black and Brown people to boldly manifest your hopes and dreams.

The word “Diary” seems to send a shiver down the back of men, let alone the thought of keeping a diary. Why? Stereotypes that we as men have been programmed with over the centuries. Those men don’t use diaries, they use journals, and some of the greatest leaders in the world kept a journal, so why not you?.

Journaling is a powerful self-improvement tool that anyone can use, men and women. Journaling is a great way to record life events as a creative and emotional outlet or as a manifestation tool.

Many influential people throughout time detailed their lives in journals - their struggles, joys, and the steps taken to reach their dreams. In the end, journals can tell life stories, create immortality, help us understand breakthrough moments in the creative process, change habitual patterns, and track and help us manifest our goals.

Many people think a diary is the same thing as a journal. Journaling is not to be confused with writing in a diary. How are they different?

  • A diary is a book to record events as they happen.
  • A journal is a book used to explore ideas that shape your reality.

Journal writing involves more than writing down your thoughts; it doesn’t have to be a linear process. Writing in a journal has many benefits, including :

creating your reality through journaling

  • Explore ideas that shape your reality,
  • Manifestation and affirmation writing,
  • Reduced stress,
  • Reduced anxiety,
  • Improved mental clarity,
  • Increased understanding of self,
  • Improved problem-solving skills,

Journaling can be used in various ways, depending on your goals. A journal is helpful whether you are brainstorming your next project or need to let off some steam! Journaling aims to focus on internal experiences rather than repress or ignore them.

Here are some methods of journaling to consider:

Journaling for manifesting your dreams.

Everything that occupies our mind manifests itself in the universe and your real-world reality. This principle is known as the law of attraction, and one of the most powerful ways to use it is through journaling, where you can write down all the things you want to bring into your reality.
Your manifestation journal should include all your dreams, goals, and things you'd love to attract in your life. The idea is to get as many details as possible so you can feel something when imagining your dream life. I call this Dream Cast journaling.

Journaling for immortality.

Many of the world's greatest leaders kept a journal. It is one of the reasons we know so much about the events in their lives. Journaling helps you create immortality; it's your guide for future generations.

Journaling for Stress Relief.

Writing down your thoughts and feelings in a journal allows you to process stress from work, relationships, or other pressures you may be experiencing. Studies have shown that 15 minutes of journal writing 3-5 times per week improves the mood of those suffering from mental health issues.

Journaling for goal tracking.

Journaling is also beneficial for tracking your goals. In a goal-tracking journal, you can create a list of goals, tick-off your accomplishments, and note any mistakes you’ve made.
It serves as a great learning tool. It works oppositely, too; you can note what’s working well, incorporate more positive habits and see more of the desired results.

Creative Journaling.

Journaling is more than just making sentences on paper for the creative types. It is a way to let ideas out and is often one of the first steps in a project or a goal. Building structure into a creative process helps artists to problem-solve, organize, and discern various thoughts - from the simple to the complex.

Finally, a Journal that has it all!

The Becoming You journal, one for men and one for women, is based on real-world experience and concepts designed to support you in organizing your thoughts and emotions. It will help you track your goals and accomplishments, inspire you to Dreamcast your future, record how you have spent your life, and help you heal from past traumas.
