For some of you, this might be a catchy headline :). “Grimoire” is a book of psychic journals, but using this name in this entry is the best way to describe what we’re going to discuss, uff :).
As psychicic explorers, we can not deny our materialistic instinct – let’s be honest, from time to time we have to touch something physical. I mean books of course :P. As I still believe that psychicic explorers should stick with paper and pen, rather than digital apps, I think it’s a great idea to create your own book containing all your knowledge of psychics.
First we need a blank book which we will later fill with knowledge. You can take a closer look on blank books on Amazon, but if you want my real opinion, then there’s nothing better than a real Moleskine! Or, you can go to your local notebooks provider and find something you will greatly enjoy! Remember, your book of knowledge must look awesome, otherwise there would be no point in creating it ;). Choose something with a “feel”.
Now you should write down some basics, like what psychics is in your opinion, how can we divide it, what abilities can we recognise etc. Put some nice quote and draw some nice crystal :). OK, you can skip the drawing part if you want. Then you should learn some things about how to actually manage your journal – you can do this on the Ultimate Moleskine Guide Hub Page.
Filled with new knowledge, you should now divide the journal into sections. First, think of what do you want to write about in your journal. Personally, currently I have the following sections in my own Moleskine: psychic development; runes; ghosts, spirits & entities and the ways of dealing with them; Earth Energy Grid. Think about your sections, then put one more called “Draft Pad” where you will write down everything else. Count the number of pages in your notebook, then divide it by number of all sections (including the one for drafts) and you will get the number of pages you can designate for each section.
You can also use some stickers to mark each section, but it’s not necessary – few minutes and you will know where you have what you have. Oh, and don’t worry if you will be forced to write something in wrong section because you won’t have enough space in the original section – my Moleskine is a mess because I’m experimenting with different techniques all over the time.
It’s time for some fun – take a pen, and begin writing down all your knowledge about subjects you have choose to include in your journal. Write something today, write something tomorrow, keep writing things you already know and things you will be learning. With time, your journal will become a great source of knowledge and the blank notebook will turn into the most precious thing you have.
Here are some tips of things you can include in your journal:
And here are some tips regarding how to run the journal:
Now you know everything you need to know to begin writting your very own psychic journal of knowledge :). Perhaps one day you will pass it to your kids, who know? Just remember – it’s all about having fun first, then sharing knowledge later :).
