The benefits of combining journaling, dialoguing, and community building. Explore The Constellation

When entering into a new social group and seeking community there is always a moment where I am seeking those who look friendly. I’m likely going to talk to people that are approachable, exploring an interesting topic to me, and are open to sharing. One of the best things about exploring the Constellation Experience is there is journaling uniform questions, dialoguing and having conversations about those themes, and the opportunity to add perspectives to solutions and ideas proposed to questions. This encourages people to share their ideas with less stress and anxiety and opens up conversations with people who are new to the community and those who have been there a while. In sharing the concept of Constellation Experience with others I have been asked about the benefits of journaling. The idea of journaling and talking about the contents of our ideas as a group is also new. Some people imagine a school where lessons are imparted and answers are the same across the classroom, with some answers being right and other solutions being wrong. That is not the format anyone should expect here. Let’s talk about the benefits of journaling, personal development for Kinksters, and having meaningful conversations. Journaling does more than just help you record your memories or find the right words to improve your self-expression. It’s good for your health and will help you establish meaningful connections.

Reduces Stress. An accumulation of stress can be damaging to your physical, mental, and emotional health. It’s proven. Journaling is an incredible stress management tool, a good-for-you habit that lessens the impact of physical stressors on your health, and it can support you in talking about ideas that matter. Journaling with a group allows us to learn from each other’s perspectives, and be exposed to new ideas, even if the question was a familiar one. When we share our ideas during the Constellation Experience we are getting to know the people who are in our community. It’s a lot less stressful as you talk with the group because everyone is coming at topics from their own perspective. People tend to relax more as they find they are able to speak openly and are welcomed as part of the group.

Keeps Memory Sharp. Not only does it boost memory and comprehension, it also increases working memory capacity, which may reflect improved cognitive processing. Journaling helps keep your brain sharp and creative because each time you explore topics as a group people begin exploring and expressing who they are in relationship to these ideas. This allows us to remember more about conversations and topics as they become relevant to us and how we relate to each other. This also helps people get a sense of who they would feel most comfortable talking to one on one and who they feel may not be a good fit to explore more with as conversations progress.

State Enhancer. Journaling allows us to express our ideas and receive feedback from ourselves and others quickly during the Constellation Experience. Do you want a more positive outlook for your daily life? Try journaling with the questions provided with the Constellation Experience. The Constellation Experience provides social and individual feedback from journaling and conversing with others who are attracted to similar ideas. Receiving feedback from others who inspire, encourage, and validate us can improve our mood and give us a greater sense of overall emotional well-being and happiness. We learn about ourselves during the process and that opens up our possibilities in the future.

Improved Communication. As critical thinking and communication habits get practiced and developed during Constellation Experience journaling exercises everyone has an opportunity to explore what these habits could bring to their daily life. Writing habits are developed just like our thinking styles. We have to work through how to learn and practice learning, communicating, and becoming aware of the feedback from the activities to notice the benefits become long-term. That means that the journaling and thinking habits you develop with the Constellation Experience can help you to become more in tune with your personal identity and wellness by connecting you with inner needs and desires that are often not as easily expressed. Journaling evokes mindfulness and helps writers remain present while keeping an associative perspective. It presents an opportunity for emotional catharsis and helps the mind regulate emotions. It provides a greater sense of confidence and self-identity. Journaling can help in the management of personal adversity and change, and emphasize important patterns and growth in life. I have found that expressive writing can help individuals develop more structured, adaptive, and integrated understandings about themselves, others, and the world. The ability to communicate your thoughts, ideas, opinions, and desires in a compelling and authentic way is one of the most significant aspects of living a happy and successful life. Being kinky we have an advantage over those who are not because Kinksters as a group dialogue about consent, relationship status, aftercare, expectations, limits, and what makes us really come alive.

Think Things Through. Sometimes I can be impulsive, impatient, and uncertain. Writing things out can be a way of thinking through things for me. I’m not trying to be productive, or write out prose when I journal. I’m seeking to find harmony and understand the relationship(s) I am focusing on, and sometimes attempting at arriving at the right words is not easy, and can be counterintuitive. This helps me to be aware of what is going on within me and release it. Writing something down does not make it permanent and that took some time for me to realize. I have come back to my own writings and read them only to find I thought completely different about a topic, person, or way forward. What I want to share with this experience during the Constellation Experience is more than just a method of listening to oneself. I want people to listen to commonalities, interests, fears and loves shared within the group. These are people within our community of interests and they are seeking others who light up as they do. Exploring relationships to one another and how they impact us is often not spoken about. The Constellation Experience is about personal development as we take part in rediscovering what we know and who we are by expressing ourselves through the narrative that we have established as identity.

Our conversations cultivate the growth of ideas, relationships, identity, and the language and confidence in communicating with others about these elements. By combining dialoguing, diverse conversations, and a sampling of individual and group stream of consciousness through these exercises, the Constellation Experience departs from the exclusive focus on oneself through the contextual lens of a social situation. We can get shocked by things that do not accord with our expectations. In these moments questions are felt more like passions than commonplace actions. A question can weigh on us like until we can no longer avoid it any longer. When we think about the significant majority of cultural situations, resources, entertainment, and labels that comprise and define our everyday life it should be no surprise that this work is focused on Kinksters. It falls onto us to claim ownership of the labels, meanings, and future for our imagined life and relationships. As a group, we do not accept all the same social expectations of vanilla folk. This author, and this work, encourage you to identify what being a Kinkster means to you. It is wonderful to be free to be different and to not feel that something is wrong with us because we are different. The word “feel” has in fact changed its meaning here. When you feel the headache, you have immediate acquaintance with a certain feeling-state you are having; but when you “feel” different there is a grasping for identity and a space that feels like home.
