For many years, I’ve kept my own journals to capture my own spiritual progress and record the patterns weaving in and around my life. When I look back, I can see how I’ve grown, and I appreciate the important lessons I needed to encounter along the way. During these unprecedented times, I find myself needing to record my thoughts and feelings more, as though I am drawn to the need to record them. My mind goes round and round trying to make sense of what is happening right now, not just in the USA, but all over the world.
The spiritual discipline of journaling is meant to be so much more than just a record of events. It’s a way to relish time with your self in quiet contemplation and reflection, and it will help you connect with your soul on a deeper level. It’s a bit like a meditative conversation with your inner-self. It can also be a cathartic time, where you're able to work out your response to what's going on, and hopefully find comfort from within. If you've never made time to keep a journal before, maybe this is the ideal time to start. I like to call my journal, a Soul Journal.
So, here are a few of my tips to start your own Soul Journal:
Here are a few more ideas of other things you can record in your Soul Journal:
When you practice spiritual journaling, the real you will begin to emerge. Your thoughts take on greater clarity and you gain accessibility to some of those unanswered questions as you reach deeper within yourself. Try not to overanalyze everything, just get out of your own way and be honest with the Divine Source as well as yourself.
