We must be careful with the temptation to make journaling a sacred practice by demanding too much of it. The perfect pen and notebook, the perfect candle or incense, a hot cup of tea, sweet nothings of nature whispering in your ear.
The practice is what is sacred.
It is undoubtedly a spiritual practice for many people.
A ritual that requires only your voice and your hand.
A ritual that truly respects your intuition, your knowing, your wisdom.
A ritual that allows the written word to be the avenue of communication with your deepest knowing.
Let that be sacred enough.
