Taking the time to adopt a spiritual journaling practice allows you to connect deeply with your creativity as a creative soul, creativepreneur or business owner. In this post, I’ll share a few spiritual journaling techniques and some guided journaling prompts for you to explore. I invite you to really see these techniques and prompts as an opportunity to play and experiment – this is meant to be explorative and fun – take what serves you, leave what doesn’t.
In case you need to be convinced, here are just a few of the incredible benefits of a journaling practice.. and why to adopt a daily practice:
Now, let’s dive into some of the ways you can spiritually journal. (Note: when I refer to spirituality in this post, I am not referring to religion. I’m referring to your relationship with your own spirit. You are invited and encouraged to adapt this terminology in the way that most speaks to you and your values)
Let’s start with the simplest (yet often the most challenging) type of spiritual journaling: free-form writing. It’s challenging because it can feel vulnerable and difficult for those newer to journaling. Let me tell you a little secret: though I said that, I actually find this the easiest type of spiritual journaling personally. So each to their own!
Free-form journaling is simply pouring out your heart, pen to paper, kind of like a “brain dump” (a technique I regularly talk about in terms of content and copywriting). The difference with this is that it’s not just a brain dump – it’s a soul’s pouring.
While you can certainly allow yourself to share and release what is on your mind or what is worrying you in this space, the focus is to allow for your heart and soul to have the space to speak about your visions, your dreams, and the things that are sacred to you (that you wouldn’t normally share or discuss with anyone else)
Following along with the lunar cycle and journaling at key moments each month, like the New Moon and the Full Moon, is another beautiful spiritual journaling technique to add to your toolkit.
When you take the time twice a month to hold a special ceremony and journal, you’re creating truly sacred space for yourself to also restore your energy and creativity.
At the New Moon- consider:
And for the Full Moon, consider:
Guided journaling is a wonderful way to ensure you’re taking time to journal, with the support of inspiration for getting started. This can help when you know you need time for yourself but don’t know what to journal about. Guided journaling prompts still give you a beautiful opportunity for self-discovery.
Here are a few prompts to get you started.
It may sound tedious, but taking the time to continually write and rewrite the same powerful words is a really great way to help instill this new affirmation into your psyche to allow it to create new beliefs.
I did this myself early on in my first spiritual awakening, and it genuinely helped me embody the affirmation I was working on in a whole new way.
