The Art of Journaling

The history of journaling dates back thousands of years with the oldest known diary being discovered in Egypt. Present day journaling is defined as a daily record of musings, thoughts, feelings, dreams, reflections, or experiences.

Daily journaling is a rich tool of support that activates understanding, enlightenment, integration, and healing. Journaling has the potential to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your feelings, and your thoughts.


Whether you purchase a ready-made journal or build and bind your own from scratch, fill your journal with drawings, musings, milestones, and any moving experiences. Allow a joyful passion to inspire your creation. The process of journaling is not about writing pages and pages every day. Free yourself by allowing your journal time to occur within a nonjudgmental space. Give yourself permission to freely create from your own unique and independent style of expression. Your journal is just that, your journal. There is no right or wrong way to journal. It is most helpful to approach journaling in a way that works for you.

Spending some time each day playing and creating in your journal provides immense support in deepening your connection to yourself. Your daily journal time may involve paragraphs of writing, collages of art, drawings, painting, or simply writing down one word. As you journal, do your best to allow a playful energy to guide your process.

It is important to create a safe and relaxed environment for yourself. A calm space encourages creative flow and connection. Give yourself permission to keep your journal private. You are not obligated to share this sacred part of your journey with anyone. This creates an important sense of safety and is extremely helpful if you struggle to keep a journal or have difficulty with the process. 

If you are feeling stagnant within your healing journey or looking for a new support tool, you may want to consider the powerful practice of daily journaling.
