Sarah Ban Breathnach in her book Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy reminds you that you need to create a reassuring ritual for yourself to access your inner reservoir, that place deep within you inhabited by imagination. Create an inviting one for when you work with your Illustrated Discovery Journal. Pick one night a week that you can devote to searching for the visual images that reveal your authentic preferences. Make the process as appealing as possible.
