7 Big Benefits of Journaling and How To Get Started Now


The practice of writing down your thoughts, hopes, dreams and life experiences is one of the most valuable and important spiritual practices one can have. This practice is known as journaling or keeping a personal diary.
I can speak from my own first hand experience that the ritual of documenting your experiences, emotions, thoughts and insights can help you move through life's challenges as well as help you find solutions on your own by simply putting your thoughts to paper.

7 Big Benefits of Journaling:

  1. Connect with your higher self
  2. Manifest specific desires
  3. Become more psychic
  4. Remember your dreams
  5. Receive messages from your guides, crossed over loved ones, angels etc.
  6. Allow your creative flow to get moving
  7. Receive answers to some of the challenges you may be facing

These are just a few of the many benefits you may receive from a regular journal practice.Writing in your journal is an interesting process. I have been “shown” by my guides the actual process of  what is going on in the etheric realms when we sit down and allow thoughts and ideas to move through us from the etheric realm into the physical. When you journal, an energy connection is created between the non-physical realms (etheric, non-physical you) and the physical realm (where we live). The act of journaling is another way of receiving light from source. The information moves through you energetically as it makes the journey from your higher self to your personality and physical self. You receive a tune-up and your batteries are charged for the time being.What if you really want to journal but don't have anything to write about? I have a few of my suggestions.

Write down.

  • Your blessings
  • Questions that have been struggling with and not finding the answers to
  • Your goals, intentions
  • Qualities you would like to embody for yourself
  • Prayers for yourself or others
  • Some of the areas in your life that you would like some assistance
  • What your best day ever would look like
  • Your achievements that were at one time challenges

I do suggest writing in your journal as often as possible. It does not matter what time of the day you journal. How, when, or where you write your entries is up to each individual. Journaling is and does look different for each and every one of us. There really is no wrong way to journal, the simple action of putting thoughts to paper and allowing a steady stream of consciousness to flow will be a blessing for you.
Hopefully, you now have a different view on journaling and will either continue to journal or will begin a journaling practice, the pros most certainly outweigh the cons – which are simply remaining stagnant.
Blessings and Light,
Laurie Barraco

    Does it matter whether the journal is handwritten or typed?

    Does typing have the same benefit as handwriting
