What is spiritual journaling? Does it assist spiritual growth?
Journaling is a popular tool for personal development. A daily journaling practice is an excellent way to quiet and organize your thoughts. In this respect, journaling takes on a meditative quality and the benefits of journaling mirror those of various types of meditation.
Here is an easy technique to try - taking dictation!
Spiritual journaling in particular, using specific journal writing topics, enhances spiritual growth in several ways. Here are some benefits of the journaling process:
You may want to try writing a ‘letter to God,’ or to your soul or Higher Self.
This writing process allows you to deeply express your questions, desires, hurts and fears. The process of bringing forth these feelings and thoughts releases any pent-up energy that has been used to hold them in, and so it can have a very healing effect.
Many of us tend to keep our thoughts and feelings inside. Getting them out and writing them down is very helpful in recognizing not only what our true thoughts and feelings are, but also in arriving at sensible, suitable and easy solutions to events and circumstances that may trouble us.
Another simple practice is to choose a spiritual journaling topic each day.
Using this technique, allow your thoughts or feelings about your journal writing prompt to pour forth through the writing process.
Your topic might be about something specific that happened that day, or that you noticed or thought about.
Or, you may choose something more generic and simply allow your creativity to be expressed.
If you love nature, you can bring your journal with you while you're at the beach or to your quiet overlook spot at the park.
Get a special journal for your spiritual practice. This gives it even more importance. You will enjoy looking back over your journal entries and rewriting your experiences and feelings from a new perspective.
