There are many benefits to keeping a psychic journal. For one, it helps open a channel to intuition. Day to day chatter can get in the way of hearing your inner voice. Whenever you record your psychic experiences, it strengthens the connection between your conscious and psychic selves. Simply acknowledging this connection puts us more in touch with our natural intuitive abilities. This leads us to point two.
Keeping a psychic journal helps silence or overcome the logical ego driven part that tries to discount everything. So many times we may say, oh that was just coincidence. Or maybe we tell ourselves it was just a lucky guess. This in effect "chases away" your intuitive, psychic senses. It is as if your psychic self says okay if you're not going to pay attention to me I might as well stop giving you information. We want there to be a conversation between your psychic self and your logical brain. What we don't want is a monologue with the logical brain doing all the talking. Always remember, find some time to be still and listen to that small still voice within. Another great result of psychic journaling is to provide encouragement in your journey.
Journaling allows you to look back and see what progress you have made! This is especially important when you may be feeling a little discouraged or as if you aren't getting anywhere with your psychic development. Remember, the development of psychic ability is a process. It is most certainly not a one off deal. It takes time and some degree of discipline to make tuning into your psychic senses a daily routine. And as it is with any new habit or change we wish to make, there are going to be backslides. There may even be times when you get disgusted with the whole thing and just give it up for a while. That's okay. Just pick yourself up and get right back on it. Look back over your successes. Think about how good it feels to have this resource at your disposal. Look back in your journal to where you started and see just how far you've come. It's a great motivator. Always be gentle with yourself. Never beat yourself up for past "mistakes". There really is no such thing as a mistake, only a learning opportunity. The psychic journal also helps you sharpen your awareness of what psychic skills actually are.
Whenever you record a journal entry, it expands your awareness of psychic phenomena. One day you may have a precognitive experience. You may anticipate who is on the phone when it rings without looking at caller ID. Another day you may be clairvoyant. Different people experience clairvoyance in different ways. But most people say it is the experience of seeing or knowing something that is not within your five senses' ability to perceive. There are may other forms of psychic skills which we will cover in another article. But becoming aware of them helps them to grow and get stronger. It's another way of manifesting your reality.
To sum up, there are many advantages to keeping a psychic journal. You will likely find more of these benefits as you continue the practice. We suggest you get started today!
