Journaling allows us to have a conversation with our unconscious while we are still awake. It creates a consecrated environment where we can work through our traumas, anger and losses. It is the perfect tool for getting to the root of why an emotion or feeling keeps coming up. Journaling reveals unhealthy or self-defeating patterns so that we can turn the corner and begin the real work of healing. 
Methods of Journaling can be:

Lists

Keywords 

Poems

Free writing

Art

Illustration 

Voice Memos

Videos

Cartoons 

Mixed Media
It can take on a mix of all these things and give you a sense of life. It is your journey of self-work. Delve into your thoughts and use all of the methods of journaling you are drawn to. With each facet of yourself you become present to and each tool of expression you learn, take them and make them your own. Step into your identity with strength and pride. Use your favorite techniques of journaling to enhance your Spiritual Practice. You are the master of your destiny and you control what your Spiritual Practice will be and its purpose.
