Journal Writing Prompt 3

Today, let's explore a bit deeper. Let us explore our higher values and beliefs. Here are a few questions to get you started, and go with them where you will.

Are you religious?

If yes,

How important is religion in your life?

Do you actively practice it?

Why do you practice it?

If no,

Why not?

Do you believe in higher power?

Are you spiritual?

Do you simply not acknowledge the possibility that there is no God, or are you convinced that there isn't any?

What makes you so sure?

Do you believe in higher power perhaps, but no religion?

Do you believe in karma? What goes around comes around?

Do you believe that your destiny is laid out for you, or is it something you shape?

Each of these questions could make up a journal on its own.

What's important is which one strikes a chord with you. Try writing answers to each of them - for some, you might stop after a sentence, having no more to say, but with others you might that your mind contains far more thoughts about the issue that realised.

There is no right or wrong. Your beliefs, your faith, your values are yours to choose. The purpose of this exercise is to explore it so you understand the reasons behind them, and by doing so, you understand yourself.


  1. I am really enjoying your journal prompts, I'm not using them on my blog but in my writen journal instead.

  2. Jade,

    That's great :-) They are more meant for personal journals rather than blogs anyway, though of course people can use them however they like.

    I have got few more lined up to post, just need to finish those posts, so your comment gave me a little push to get on with it.

  3. Done. I enjoyed putting it into words for myself for once.
