Unique Writing Journals for Your Spiritual Life

Listen to the words of your soul and write them down for future inspiration. You might be in the middle of your spiritual journey and get some really deep insights from listening to powerful teachings or reading some very inspirational books. However, at times our mind might wander and it’s good to have that knowledge written down so we can later reconnect with it again.

Not that long ago, I found my first spiritual journal where I wrote down so many teachings I had learned. It was to my surprise that I didn’t even remember taking some notes. I’m glad I did, since it made me relive that very special teaching that I attended years ago, plus it had some information I had forgotten about.

A journal is also very powerful for venting. It may not solve the problem right away, but it sure feels good to just let it out.

After collecting a few journals over time, here are some pieces of advice:

-Make sure to write down the date of your journal entry.

-If you attended a teaching, write down the name of the teaching, location and the teacher.

-When writing down a sentence or paragraph from a book, make sure to note the name of the book, author and page. This way you can revisit that specific section of the book again.

-Keep a pen in the middle of your journal, that way you always have something to write with.

-You can have more than one journal at a time. Some can be reserved for only very sacred teachings and others for keeping quotes, for writing down your worries, poetry, etc.

-If you carry your journal in a tote or backpack, make sure not to place it next to any type of liquid that might accidentally spill and damage it.

-Store it in an easy to find spot, if something inspirational came up, you don’t to be looking for it all over the house to write it down.

Who knows, when you pass away the information stored in your journal might be beneficial to others. After all, there have been some famous people that kept a journal and that’s how we were able to learn some insightful lessons.

Do you have any more advice that you would like to share? I would love to hear from you! Please write down your comments, suggestions or any questions you may have.

May you find the journal that’s ideal for writing your life journey. May you have peace and love in your hearts.

    Hello! They look absolutely lovely. I much prefer to take notes in a journal than digital. Which one of these have the best paper quality you reckon?

    Thanks very much 🙂

    • Carmen

      Hi Manny,

      I’m the same way, I prefer a journal over a digital format. To me it feels that as I move my hand when I write, it helps release more feelings. The journals with the best paper quality would be the ones with Lokta paper. This type of paper is really durable and resistant to tearing. It’s so strong that in Nepal there is an ancient Buddhist scripture called the Karanya Buha sutra that is estimated to be between 1,000 and 1,900 years old, which was printed in lokta paper. Thanks for visiting, I hope you have a great day! 🙂

    This is a very insightful post and the journals above are beautiful. I did keep a journal a long time ago when I moved halfway across the county and struggled a bit with the move. You have a very inspiring site and I admire your efforts. Well done – Curtis.

    • Carmen

      Hi Curtis,

      Thanks for your kinds words. I’m glad that you had a journal when you moved halfway across the country. A journal is a really good place to let out your feelings. Have a great day! 🙂

    You know I’ve always wanted to keep a journal and I do currently, but its an audio one. The reason? Well, sometimes even I have trouble understanding my handwriting!
    These journals are lovely though. I practice meditation on a daily basis so you oculd say these have some appeal to me. Just gotta fix my handwriting first!

    • Carmen

      Hi Vivek,

      That’s so cool that you have a audio journal. I’m glad that you are able to store your memories and thoughts so later on you can hear them again.
      Believe me my handwriting is not the best (sometimes I also have a hard time understanding what I wrote). When I attend a teaching and I write it down, I notice that for some strange reason I tend to remember it more if I write it down than by just listening. I guess it must be because I’m a very visual person. Thanks so much for visiting! I wish you the best on your meditation practice 🙂
