Your Journey

“Your Journey” worksheets are designed to help you increase your self-awareness, self-love, and inner joy. It is helpful to complete the worksheets in order starting with Worksheet #1, “Embracing the Power of Your Emotional World,” to maximize the benefits of your journey. I encourage you to move through the exercises at a leisurely pace that feels right to you. Although it may be tempting to rush, magic often happens when ample time is made to process thoughts and feelings. Feel free to repeat a worksheet more than once to deepen your understanding and awareness.
Trust your inner voice and do what feels healing and healthy for you.
“Your Journey” worksheets are not intended to replace psychotherapy and are to be used with gentle caution and care. You may wish to work independently, with a trusted friend, or within a safe and affirming confidential group setting. As psychological work can be activating, always consult immediately with your health care provider if any issues or concerns arise.

"Your Journey" worksheets have been created with thoughtfulness and joy by Dr. Carla Marie Manly

If you are wanting to feel more in touch with yourself and your emotions, this worksheet will lead you into creating a stronger connection with your emotional world. If you do not understand your emotions and their benefits, it can be easy to feel controlled by their energy. On the other hand, if you tend to push down or ignore your emotions, they may feel foreign or frightening to you.

This worksheet will lead you into a discovery of the powerful beauty of all of your emotions. Indeed, each of the five emotions–fear, anger, sadness, disgust, or joy–is a powerful source of knowledge and energy. The work is getting to know your emotions, learning how to process them, and using them productively. As you learn to see that your emotions are one of your most valuable resources, you will find great power and ease in life.
