Journal writing as a way to awaken to your spiritual truth
Spirituality is one of those things that can get put on the back burner, especially when life gets too busy. Time goes by and we forget to pray, we miss church, or we simply change course.
That’s ok! There is no right or wrong way to be spiritual, and you do not need to go anywhere but inside your own heart to have a connection to God or Spirit.
What feels true to you may not to someone else. You may or may not want to engage in certain religious or spiritual activities. But we all benefit from reaching deep inside our hearts for our own spiritual connection with God. A strong spiritual connection gives a sense of place in the universe, and peace of mind. And journaling is an excellent way to strengthen that connection.
Spirituality is always expanding and evolving. We go through different stages of spiritual awakening, growth, and development throughout life. Spirituality is rarely stagnant, even if we are not focused on it.
These 25 spiritual awakening journal prompts will help you define your current spiritual beliefs and feelings while inspiring you to keep your connection to God strong. Because that connection can be incredibly grounding, empowering, and nurturing all at the same time.
How to write about God in a way that feels authentic
If the word God doesn’t feel right to you, your might try substituting Spirit, Universe, Goddess, or something similar.
No matter what word you chose to represent God, consider the feeling or sense you are attempting to name. For most of us, that feeling is probably similar.
If I had to describe God without using the word God, I would describe God as an expansive, pure being of light and love. All-encompassing, full of awe, beauty, and infinite potential. I do like to substitute “The Universe” for God at times. It feels accurate.
How would you describe God?
Well, that happens to be one of the first questions to write about in this list of 25 journal prompts. Let’s dive in and get started!
