Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the most asked questions that I receive about doodling your emotions. If there is a question that you have that is not covered here, hit the contact button and leave me a message!
01 WHAT IS HEARTWORK JOURNALING?
Doodling or journaling your emotions brings awareness and insight to how your thoughts, emotions and actions work together to create your desired results. No matter what you are going through or what is going on around you doodling can help with your everyday mental and emotional health.
02 HOW DOES PURPOSEFUL JOURNALING, CREATIVITY AND MINDFULNESS WORK AND HELP ME HEAL FROM TRAUMA?
Journaling, creativity and mindfulness activities work to help you approach circumstances that you may have no control over. It's a way to control negative emotions by changing your narrative to help you reach your desired outcome. For example, is anxiety and fear creating chaos in your life? By using journaling, creativity, color and mindful activities you can transform a blank page in your journal and change the relationship with anxiety and fear by simply writing a letter to them. In one of the lessons I teach, Letters From Fear, I will show you why it is important to have fear in your life, but how to create a new relationship with fear.
Your journals are FOR YOU. Through journaling you will learn to give yourself permission to be human and experience all the emotions and you will learn not to hold back! You can write exactly what you are feeling without shame, guilt and fears because you are worried about what others will think of you. I will walk you through how to journal your story, your dreams, your fears, your goals and joyful moments. Not only will this allow you to stay focused it will also remind you that there are many good things in your life!
03 DO I NEED SPECIAL ART SUPPLIES?
No, you don't need anything special. Although I use water color paints on the regular you can use crayons, markers, finger paint, watercolors, computer paper, notebook paper, sticky notes and if need be, paper napkins! All of these are art supplies.... trust me, I have journaled and doodles with. and on, everyone of these items!
