Handwritten journal, yes. Vlog, no. I’ll get to the why in just a moment. As for the journal, the more involved the process of choosing one, the better results you’ll get. Spend some significant time choosing one that sticks out to you. My journal actually has a hardwood cover, and the paper is made from stone rather than wood pulp. It has a very mystical feel, and the first time I put a pen to it, I felt the “magickal buzz.” Your online journal can have a similar effect too, but I treat it a bit differently. With the online journal, I only talk about results that have already come to pass as a result of my practices. I do this to maintain the “code of silence,” and that’s also why I recommend against a vlog unless you’re an advanced alchemist and can resist its effects.
Most disciplines of mental alchemy will urge practitioners NOT to talk about their intentions, or what they’re working on because the psychological energy of those who are jealous by your growth will discourage you – even if you don’t realize it. Over time, the negativity will form limiting beliefs in your subconscious and will prevent you from success. I have experienced this first hand multiple times, hence why I stopped talking about some of the big things going on behind the scenes. People were using those successes to discredit and bash @Fire and myself. It’s easier to tear someone else down than to build yourself up and at times, I found myself a bit discouraged. So, I simply stopped talking about them until they came to pass.
Careful with a vlog. People will find all kinds of way to try and discredit you so they can maintain their sorry state of living. We actually have a really big announcement we’re dying to make, but we’re going to maintain the code of silence until it’s ready, simply to avoid those who would try to destroy our venture before it even starts, all because they’re triggered by seeing other people’s success.
