50 Spirituality Journal Prompts for Spiritual Growth + Exploration

Today I’m sharing 50+ spirituality journal prompts to help you safely explore your spiritual nature. These spiritual writing ideas foster spiritual healing and growth, so you can strengthen your most important relationship of all: the one with yourself.

Why is Journaling Good for Spirituality?

Spiritual journaling is a beautiful way to connect with your spiritual self. 

Daily life can distract you from connecting with your Divine nature. So when you dedicate time to nourish your spirituality, it reframes every situation in your life. 

When you have a spiritual practice, you’re less likely to experience depression, sadness, and emptiness that so many people suffer from. 

Keeping a spiritual journal helps you to remember that you are an energetic being who came here with great purpose. And that purpose is rooted in joy!  

Spiritual journaling helps you: 

  • Identify things in life that are most important to you 
  • Heal your inner child
  • Practice mindfulness 
  • Process difficult emotions 
  • Practice kindness and compassion for yourself and others
  • Find joy and purpose in your life

How To Keep a Spiritual Journal

There are no hard and fast rules for keeping a spiritual journal. But I do recommend you have a notebook or journal that’s dedicated to your spiritual thoughts, feelings, dreams, and ideas. 

Your spiritual writing is sacred and deserves respect. 

I will share some of my favorite guided journals later in this post, but feel free to just use a regular notebook or even your device if you prefer. As long as it’s private and you don’t use it for anything else. 

When To Write Your Spiritual Journal

You can journal as frequently as you’d like. 

But it’s best to have a routine, whether it’s every night before bed, once a week, or monthly. The frequency is totally up to you, but try to be consistent. 

When you make spiritual journaling a regular practice, you gain the most benefits.

What Should I Write in My Spiritual Journal?

Nothing is off-limits when it comes to your spirituality journaling. Any topic that’s important to you is a perfectly appropriate and sacred topic. 

The writing prompts I share below will help get you started, but you don’t have to confine yourself to them. 

In general, think about subjects + situations from the perspective of:

  • How they make you feel
  • How they impact your life
  • Their relation to your life purpose
  • What they’re showing up to teach you
  • How they can help you to grow
  • Where you need physical or emotional healing

The main point of spirituality journaling is to highlight opportunities for spiritual growth, and to identify things that light you up so you can move toward them. 

This is how you manifest your very best life – and you deserve nothing less.
