How to start a spiritual development journal

I have a stack of spiritual development journals dating back to 2014 when I first discovered the commonsense style of evidential psychic and mediumship taught in the UK.

They sit in a stack in my reading room, and each year, I add a new one. These journals hold only notes, and ‘aha’ moments to do with my spiritual development.

Nothing else.

Sometimes it’s a quick aha moment after I’ve sat in the power.

Sometimes it’s random inspiration download walking the dog.

Much of it are notes from the many formal trainings in mediumship from my UK and Aussie tutors.

A spiritual development journal is a powerful way of logging progress.

There’s always days it feels like one step forward three steps back and a journal is a reminder of progress.

Because we all have days where it feels like there’s zero happening and we’re as psychic as a potato. That’s where a spiritual development journal shines. It’s a silent cheerleader, especiallyif there’s no one else to cheer you on.

One day you’ll look back in awe at the wonderful synchronicities and coincidences to see the work of Spirit quietly behind every move, cheering you on because you were never alone and always loved.

How to start a spiritual development journal

  • Start in the middle of a new journal to avoid first page terror.
  • Does it have to be perfect? Make a mess then.
  • Scribble.
  • If you’re a perfectionist (and who isn’t) deliberately spill tea or coffee on a page and notice your reactions.
  • All the reasons you don’t want to start this journal.
  • Write down how many journals you have that are too precious to use.
  • A list of the 10,000 other more important tasks needing attention rather than do some kind of reflective practice.
  • Track all the times you sit for your own soul. I use classic gold stars in my journal and it keeps me motivated.
  • All the reasons you’re a fraud and a fake and make this up and you can’t possibly be psychic. Then write T or F next to it. If that doesn’t help, go back and write TRUE TRUE next to that.
  • Do you like grids? Get inspo from other bullet journalers on Instagram.
  • Uplifting movies to watch.
  • Books on the to-read list.
  • List of personal traits you’d like to work on.
  • If you’re in a regular psychic or mediumship practice group, use the journal to record the things you did well.
  • That person who annoys the living daylights out of you? How much are they like you? Write down how uncomfortable that thought even is.
  • Doodle instead of draw, especially on Zoom calls. Notice what your soul wants to tell you.
  • Ten tiny things you’ve accomplished since on the spiritual path.
  • Ten tiny things you’d like to accomplish on the spiritual path.
  • Three things I’d tell the me of the past.

Semi fictional story about me

In 1994, I had a midlife crisis, got a boob job and moved to Byron Bay.

Quickly realized there was nothing there but more boob jobs and white furniture, so I escaped faux-spiritual beach culture, went to Peru, and experimented with DMT.

While in Peru, fell in love with a Shaman who was really a plumber from Padstow, but stayed because of attachment issues.

After following a puma from the jungle, I holed up in a Scandi-style Air B’n’B and finally got enlightened.

Parts of this story are true.
