When did you last give yourself time to heal? This question really hits me because I too often place healing at the bottom of my priority list. Sometimes we behave as if time is the sole healer. However, there are better ways to deal with our pain. Journaling is a great first step. It enables us to observe our wounds and attend to them. Today I want to create a space for us to heal.
This journal prompt is inspired by the quartz crystal. Quartz is a healing stone. Some believe that it boosts the immune system and reduces anxiety. If you have quartz in your home I invite you to bring it to the table today.
You can join me by following the template in this blog, or by following along with the video below.
