There are different things that you can write in your journal and if you aren’t quite sure where to start, we can help you by giving you advice and prompts to get you journaling in no time!
Why Start a Spiritual Journal?
Starting a spiritual journal can be helpful for many reasons. It can help you to reach your higher elf and it can help you to reach into your subconscious mind. Writing things down can be a powerful thing because as you write, you are able to be more aware of what you are feeling and what your intentions are.
Maybe you are afraid to ask people around you for help or advice and you found that you can write things down and you can get the help that you need even deep inside of yourself. This can help you to see the answers to the questions that you already have.
Starting a Spiritual Journal
Are you new to journaling? Or are you someone that has journaled but you weren’t successful at it and so you just gave up? This is something that you can do, and it isn’t as hard as it might seem.
Journaling isn’t something that you have to put a lot of work into. It isn’t something that you have to write a whole page in order to really be doing it. You can write as little or as much as you want. You can start doing this once a week or once a month, but the most important part is that you are focusing on the right questions.
Doing a diary and a journal are different because when you journal you don’t have to write down something each day that you are feeling. The best thing is that you discover who you are along the way and the journal is there when you need it.
To begin journaling, you can purchase a journal, or you can find a three-ring binder and make your own. It is completely up to you as to what you buy.
Using prompts can make journaling easier for you. You will see that there will be questions that are asked that you can reflect on, and you can get the right answers. Here are some of the prompts:
- What am I feeling right now?
- What actions have created this feeling?
- What do I want to feel?
- What can I do to feel these things?
- What activities will make me feel the opposite of what I want to feel.
Whatever comes to your mind, write it down. Focus on what the questions are asking and make sure that you are answering them honestly. As the ideas come to your mind, write them down and you will see that you can find out what is causing you to have strong emotions, and what is causing you to be in the place that you are in.
Most of the time, you will see that after you begin to use prompts that you might not even need them anymore. You will see that you can create your own prompts as you get used to journaling.
There are different kinds of spiritual journals, and you can find ones that are guided or ones that are blank. The guided ones can have you answering questions that you might not have thought of initially. There are different kinds of guided journals that you can find online or in bookstores such as:
- Moon ritual journals. These use the cycles of the moon to write and take action.
- Manifestation journals: These guided journals can change the mindset that you have.
- Chakra healing journals: These help you to connect with your chakras and bring healing.
Find the journal that is right for you, and you will see that this isn’t as hard as you thought that it would be.
