How to Connect with your Higher Self through Journaling

Your Higher Self already knows everything you want to know about life, your purpose here on Earth, and what steps you need to take in order to actualize your fullest potential.


It can help guide you through decision-making by giving you "clues" along the way. These clues are more often than not extremely subtle-so subtle that most people don't even notice them. For example, have you ever had times where something just "feels right"? Or perhaps a solution or answer just pops into your head with no apparent explanation? When this happens, it is actually your Higher Self communicating with you on an intuitive level. A simple tool to connect with your Higher Self is journaling.


What is a Higher Self?

A Higher Self is a part of us that has been untouched from birth. It's the deep inner wisdom, your highest knowingness that puts positive influence into your life.

The Higher Self or spirit body is a part of us that exists beyond the limits of our physical body. The spirit body contains our soul and contains all of our past lives. In the physical world, we are influenced by what is here in this reality, but in the higher realm, we can be influenced by our desires for future life experiences. We have many past lives from other cultures and religions because we choose to learn different types of lessons during each lifetime. Our Higher Self helps guide us through these lessons while manifesting into a physical form within this reality.


Ways to Connect with your Higher Self through Journaling

There are a number of ways to connect with your higher self through journaling. For one thing, you can write about anything you like. Or, you can even start by asking yourself questions that require answering. Journaling is a wonderful way of gaining insight into who you really are. It's also a wonderful tool for helping rid negative thoughts and emotions from your life.

The act of writing is a very cathartic experience that allows for the person to vent out their emotions and genuine feelings about their life. When journaling, there are no rules on what words you can use or how long your sentences should be. This perfectly parallels the higher self in the sense that there are also no rules on how to connect with the higher self. By opening up and writing what you truly think, feel, and experience without any restrictions, you are able to become one with your higher self.

Journaling allows us to release our emotions in an appropriate way. We let out what is always there on the surface, but we also see our inner thoughts, feelings and emotions better so that we can manage them better. It's easy to get overwhelmed with all the feelings inside of you - whether they are good or bad. Journaling can help you better figure out what's going on and how to proceed.

Writing down and releasing our emotions helps us to see them clearly so we can decide what to do with them. It allows us not just to write them, but also to understand the effects they have had on our lives and how we could change things for the better.

When we let out what is inside of us, we can better tweak our actions so that they bring about a more positive outcome. We also see the actions of others more clearly instead of being caught up in them – which allows us to remove ourselves from situations that have been harmful to us and try again with a new perspective.


Journaling for clarity

Clarity is achieved in many different ways. For example, you can write about anything that needs to be revealed, clarified or resolved in your life. This allows the higher self to assist us by answering our questions through inspiration and intuition. You can also do this work yourself—in meditation or simply during quiet moments throughout the day when you feel moved to ask the question; then listen carefully for an answer (and it will come).

Writing brings forth words that reveal the truth and shed light on issues that may have otherwise remained cloaked in darkness. What we don't know, cannot move forward into change; but once we finally discover what's bothering us, it becomes possible to heal and better prepare ourselves for future challenges.


Journaling for meditation

When we're having a particularly difficult time finding our way through the maze of life, it can be helpful to ask questions as a means of better understanding whatever situation has arisen—or even resolving it so that we can move forward again. Journaling during meditation is a wonderful way of accessing your Higher Self and receiving answers from your inner guidance through inspiration and/or intuition.


Journaling Helps Your Spiritual Growth

In addition to asking questions related to clarity or revelation, you may also wish to journal as a way to gain insight into spiritual advancement – by taking note of any thoughts or feelings that come along during meditations. Each time something, record it in your journal afterwards and reflect on the message you received. Through continued reflection, journaling for spiritual advancement will continue to provide you with deeper and more meaningful messages – allowing us to recognize how far we've come as a result of our life experiences.

So there are many different ways in which you can connect with your higher self through journaling. You might choose to ask or answer questions related to any one of those purposes; or, do it simply as a way of keeping track of your emotions and thoughts throughout the day. Perhaps most importantly, however, is that through consistent journaling - and meditation - we gain greater clarity about the truth behind whatever issues have entered into our lives.


As you can see, there are plenty of ways in which to connect with your higher self through journaling. By journaling, you can gain insight into spiritual advancement or clarity—as well as resolve issues that may be troubling you in your everyday life. Whether during meditation or at any other time of the day when you come upon an issue that needs answering, insight, clarification, or resolution; know that there's no better way to find words than by writing them down.
