Journaling with the Rocketbook
My journaling routine changes with my mood, so I like to have different options for recording my thoughts and post-meditation reflections.
I’ve tried traditional paper notebooks and fancy journals with pretty covers, and what I use most consistently is the Rocketbook.
The premise of Rocketbook is to replace your old notebooks all together with a special reusable paper with scanning features to keep you organized. They have dotted page notebooks (grids) for more free form notes and lined page notebooks for the more traditional writing experience. It comes with a Pilot Frixion pen that has compatible erasable ink, and the pens come in different colors with their own features.
I use the dotted page notebooks for client sessions and for my dream journal. During a client session, I may receive symbols or other visual information, and I like being able to draw these things out and add words where needed. This same type of information often presents in my dreams, and when I wake up to record it, I doodle away and I’m not worried about neat lines of text.
In my structured journal sessions, I prefer the lined pages because it’s an identical experience to a regular paper notebook. Sometimes I need to write just to write, to move energy through without any particular goal. Because the pages are reusable, I don’t worry about ‘wasting’ paper and I free flow whenever I need to.
It’s the perfect compliment to The Conscious Change Workbook!
The Rocketbook comes in different sizes and colors, and the pages can be scanned into a multitude of online programs like OneNote, Google Drive, Slack, your email, and more.
My card collection has blossomed unexpectedly, and I surprisingly found myself drawn to certain creators and themes. At first I liked getting decks that I didn’t see being used very much, and then one deck rocked my world to where I’m now open to feeling out decks that are ‘popular’.
Some decks have super long guidebooks with potent messages that I like to read ‘as is’ without additional interpretation. Others are really suited for personal interpretation and are instrumental in helping develop a trust in one’s intuition.
I have certain cards that are for personal use only while others I only use in online mini-readings or with clients. I’m dabbling in Tarot and will eventually share those decks as well. Here’s what I have in my collection right now:
One of my goals this year was to spend more time reading and less time watching mindless television. I’ve always been an avid reader and if I didn’t travel and move so much, I’d have a full standing library in my home. I still love physical copies but I also read titles on Kindle and Scribd, with a sprinkle of audiobooks. Here are some of my favorites which I will continue to update:

Even though I don’t proclaim to be a business coach of any kind, I have learned TONS in my entrepreneur journey and could write a whole post on all of the tools I currently use in my business. For the purposes of this post, I’m only including physical technology items that I decided on after much trial and error.
