A positive evidence journal is where you write about all the wonderful things that happened to you during the day. You’ll write about everything that worked and the changes that are going on in your life. Create a list of positive affirmations and look for the positive evidence. This helps you develop your awareness of the spiritual forces at play on your behalf.
Then make a list of the opportunities and blessings that you receive. Even the small things, like getting a terrific parking space or eating energetically balanced food, are positive evidence. We often take these small things for granted, and we can become more aware of them by writing about them in our journals.
Express gratitude for the abundance that is flowing to you. What small things are you grateful for? Notice how your list becomes longer every day.
Example of Positive Evidence Journal
Begin each day with a positive affirmation. Start off with an affirmation that meets you where you are. When you are ready, create a new affirmation, each one building on the next, as you move up the vibrational scale. This helps you shift your beliefs so that you become more aligned with what you want. These are progressive affirmations. For example, you may discover something like:
- I need help remembering I am worthy.
- I am beginning to remember I am worthy.
- I remember more and more I am worthy.
- I am seeing evidence I am worthy.
- I am seeing more and more evidence I am worthy.
Next, look for positive evidence that you are a worthy person. If a person spoke respectfully to you, write it down. For example, “The cashier at Walgreens told me to have a nice day.” Think about that positive evidence and pay attention to how it made you feel. Don’t worry – you don’t have to do this alone! Simply use the following questions as your guide and be honest:
- Did you notice any shifts in your body?
- Were there any changes in your emotions?
- Did you experience any changes in your thoughts?
- Were there any changes in your posture?
Pay close attention to the answers you wrote in your journal and take the time to reflect on past journal entries every now and then. You are just beginning your spiritual journey, but soon you will be able to see the progress you have made and the difference between where you began and where you will end up.
Remember, a spiritual journey has no end, but every journey starts with a beginning – and you are off to a fantastic start!
