My hubby sent me a link to this funny, entertaining TEDx talk by Shawn Achor. It’s so good, I recommend you watch it. 12 minutes long. C’mon, guys! 14 million people can’t be wrong. Continue reading

For years, the Pentel R.S.V.P. pen has been my favorite. But I stumbled on one that writes so smoothly that it helps me write faster. This is great because, while I’m a very fast typist, I have trouble journaling because my hand cannot keep up with my mind. The Pilot Precise V7 RT is my new top choice. If you have a fast writing pen, please tell me so I can try it out!
Maybe the next step is finding the right paper too.
Or where have I been? Ms. McNaughton has so many visual treats! I could look for hours. THIS makes me want to Soul Journal.
Thank you, Linda.
Thanks to Linda Bergh, I learned about Soul Journaling as she taught her first class in October 2015, after her summer travels in Europe and her first explorations in using watercolor journaling.
When I learn more about the people who inspired Linda, I will post it here.
Thanks, Linda. We, some of whom you know, some of whom are learning through a network of soulmates and friends, are deeply indebted to you. Your life is a blessing and an inspiration for us to notice and celebrate the Divine and the Creation.
“When you open the journal, bring whichever self you are at that moment to the page as purely as possible. Excise the meaningless and habitual. Keep watching.”

My mother, Rebecca Ross, has been sewing pouches to fit the materials with which Linda Bergh supplied us for the Soul Journaling class. The journal book, paint set and the water brush and micron pen fit inside. The pouch is made from reclaimed materials (decorator fabric swatches). Each one is unique, no two are the same. All pouches have a lining which we try to coordinate with the fabric.

I found the illustrator Robin Brickman through a book called A Log’s Life, in which the illustrations are simply incredible and awe-inspiring. But, I Am an Artist speaks directly to the Soul Journalist. Here is a sampling, just in case you cannot check out this book from your local library. Continue reading
These are picture books to inspire your Soul Journaling. Yes, you can start soul journaling now!
Ish or Creatrilogy by Peter H. Reynolds. Ish is a little story about drawing and getting past needing the drawing to look realistic or perfect. You may find that you are willing to draw things “ish” instead of perfect.
Friends, this is how you, yes you, can get started in Soul Journaling. I sent a set of the materials to my mom, who I know will use them. Dear Mom, this post is for you. Everything I learned about Soul Journaling started with Linda Bergh. If you happen to be in Minneapolis, take a class with Linda Bergh!
You do not need to have any artistic skills.
It’s in a private journal. Noone else has to see this. Continue reading
