As the project continues to evolve, using the Quest Journals is an incredibly awesome tool for us to practice expressing ourselves. Quest Journals are designed as a place for us to really get familiar with the idea of reflecting on aspects of our reality, while also getting to practice making interesting and engaging web content. A reminder that Quest Journals are also a stepping stone towards creating more refined Conscious Articles. Use the space as practice - see what happens when you start typing things out - you will most likely surprise yourself.
Using Quest Journals can be an incredibly valuable tool for our own journey and a really fun part of the game to help YOU become a better documentarian of consciousness. They help us see more of ourselves and also develop more accountability AND a relationship with each other and the bigger community. Keep in mind that when people see our Quest Journals it has the potential to inspire them to get involved with the project aswell.
There are a variety of reasons for us to use Quest Journals. Some of my favourite include using it to write about Synchronicity Reports, Dream Journals, and Shiftviism Report Logs! Simply by knowing you have the Quest Journals can begin to change how you think about experiences. Something really interesting, exciting, or event challenging may happen - and you'll think - "Oh...this could make a good Quest Journal log." If you go out on a Shiftivism mission to do Free Hugs, take a picture either during or afterwards (with you holding a sign or what ever), and share the fact that it happened with the team! This is super useful for raising the collective morale. And of course, as you build your Paradigm Shift communities, use the Quest Journals to share updates about how things are going. If you have a meet up - make a Quest Journal talking about how it went and maybe what was talked about.
How you use your Quest Journal is up to you - but overall aim to keep the theme relatable to the audience of Paradigm Shift Central and within the concept of documenting the shift in consciousness via sharing our personal journeys.
Below in the video you will find a useful tutorial video I made explaining more of the details and technical aspects of how to post a proper Quest Journal.
Some key technical things to keep in mind are:
1) Write your content in a text document first, and then copy it into your post when you are ready - this prevents the risk of a glitch happening that might cause you to loose what you wrote.
2) Decide if you want to include an image in your post. These images will appear in the news feeds and when you reshare the links to facebook. They can make the post more appealing.
3) Copying in a youtube video isn't too hard. I explain it in the video. It's just a matter of knowing where to copy the embed code from.
4) Take some time to read other peoples Quest Journals and see what they are sharing. Get inspiration from it. After you read someones post hit the "Star" button in the top right. This shows them that you read it - and leave a comment! Feedback and communication with each other is super awesome for everyone!
Please watch the video and if you have any questions feel free to ask! I look forward to seeing what we create together and how it will paint a bigger picture as a whole. :D
So with that said - have fun :)
