The Benefits of Sacred Soul Journal Writing

 There are many benefits to Journal Writing but there are some challenges too!

An Article in Psychology Today published on Sept 5, 2013 by Steven Stosny, Ph.D. states that ‘journaling can have a negative effect on your behavior and well being if it makes you live too much in your head, makes you a passive observer of your life or makes you self-obsessed. I agree that regular journaling can do this.

But Sacred Soul Journaling is different.

Creating entries in a journal like this goes beyond just writing what is going on in your head and has many profound benefits.  It allows you to dump what is in your head so that you can center on aligning with your inner wisdom. Through the use of This sacred writing tool, this type of journaling allows your subconscious to come through to hear the wisdom of your soul for the Soul Knows The Truth.

The benefits of Sacred Soul Journaling (in no particular order of importance) allows you:

Does using the traditional methods to journal keep you too much in your head? If it does, you’ll want to go deeper and allow your inner wisdom to be heard.

  2. Thanks, Cindy. That is the Gold Nugget to Sacred Soul Journaling ~ NOT just writing the thoughts that are in your head but hearing them for just that ‘head-thoughts’ and going deeper to getting the soul thoughts!

  3. As with all things there is a balance. Understanding your intention when journaling (or really doing anything) will help keep that balance tipped in your favor.

  4. Balance in everything in life is key, Bonnie. Understanding intentions in everything is the best way to begin, yes! Sacred Soul Journaling is about taking your writing to a deeper level~ which quite possibly means losing balance ~ to uncover the depth of who you are!

  7. This was a real good! When I journal a lot of that list I’m doing. My biggest entry ever was the whole forgiveness piece. Not just forgiving others but forgiving myself.

  9. I have tended to use journaling primarily for venting! It’s a great way to get things off my chest or out of my head without burdening other people with them. But I would love to learn how to use journaling in more ways. Looking forward to it!

  10. Sarah ~ so many people like you start RIGHT there and that’s great! It is a good way to vent…..but really when you take it to the next level, it gives you the answers you seek to the angst that started the need to vent in the first place!!! Stay Tuned! 🙂

  15. Journaling is a special activity that I’ve practiced since childhood. Currently, I strive to focus on writing out the vision for the life I want to create, as well as those things for which I’m grateful. It helps me to stay focused on the positive, which is always fulfilling. For me, this approach makes the journey more wonderful, while helping me remain committed to a clear vision. Thanks for this post!
